How did the first Friday of the first FIFA World Cup in the Muslim country go?


According to the British news agency Reuters, as soon as the afternoon came, the call to Friday prayer was given in mosques in Qatar, after which the Muslim players, Muslim fans and match officials in Qatar offered Friday prayer in mosques.

A Friday gathering was also held at Ibrahim Al-Khalil Mosque in Doha where a large number of Muslims participated.

According to the reports, the Muslim football fans who came to Qatar for the World Cup said that they have never seen the kind of facilities that Qatar has provided us. There is a special place for prayer in the stadiums, and halal food was arranged for us. While the best thing is that there is a ban on carrying alcohol in the stadiums.

It should be noted that Islamic values have been highlighted in Qatar since the beginning of the event, from the recitation of the Quran in the opening ceremony of the World Cup to the display of the teachings of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH).

On the other hand, Qatar has faced criticism from some countries due to its strict laws regarding women and gays. Currently, Muslim fans are enjoying the tournament to the fullest.
