An Islamic cleric,Mubarak al-Bathali, has said that Liverpool sensation, Mohammed Salah’s shoulder injury he got during the 2018 UEFA Champions League final was from God.
The cleric said Salah was punished by God for breaking his fast just to play the final between Liverpool and Real Madrid which took place at Kieve on the 26th of May.
Mubarak al-Bathali who is a Kuwaiti preacher insists the injury sustained by the Egyptian footballer player was as a result of him breaking his fast which is a disobedient act.
Muslim’s are allowed to break their fast for travel purposes, but the Kuwaiti preacher believes the highly rated player didn’t break his fast because of the journey from England to Ukraine. He believes Mohamed Salah broke his fast because of the match itself. He further claimed that ‘God punished him’ for eating before the match during Ramadan.
Mubarak al-Bathali wrote on Twitter:
“God punished him,”
“Unfortunately, [he will] bear the burden.
“Do not think the Muslim believes that life is managed by reason and effort, but life is the hand of God comes to whom he will, whether hard or not diligent.
“Perhaps the injury is good for you.
“Do not grieve, the door of repentance is open”.
Recall that during the UEFA Champions League final, Salah sustained an injury when he tussled for the ball with Sergio Ramos. He landed awkwardly on his left shoulder which resulted in his game-ending abruptly. He cried as he was led out of the pitch by officials of his club.
