Franck Ribery, Umrah & Ramadan

Before his entry on the field, it is not uncommon to see Ribery pray. His wife is Muslim, he himself has chosen Islam as religion and they have two daughters (Hiziya and Shahin). He moreover said: "It is Islam that gives me strength on the field outside"


In January 2009, the French international that plays for Bayern Munich, Franck Ribéry, a Muslim soccer player, visited to Mecca to perform Umrah during an internship in Saudi Arabia. After playing the first half of the friendly match in Jeddah, Franck Ribery and his teammate Hamid Altintop have traveled to Mecca, 70 km. Then they returned to the hotel at night to join the rest of their team of Bayern Munich in order to continue preparing for the Bundesliga.

The German press has asked him how he reconciled the observance of Ramadan and its obligations in the Bundesliga. "The days off I am fasting, but not when I have to play a game," said Ribery, who adopted the Islamic name Bilal Mohammed Yusuf.

  13. Make your blog comment section into ‘dofollow.”
    By default, the wordpress comment section is ‘nofollow,’ meaning that when someone places their link in your blogs comments section, it passes no pagerank.
    This really is a debatable point, and what you do will depend on your business model. By turning your blogs comment section into a ‘dofollow’ you will attract a lot more comments, while giving away pagerank at the same time.
    For my business model, this is a “dofollow’ blog for my comments because I am more concerned about relationships than about pagerank. I feel that the benefits far exceed the negatives.

  20. Nice article bro..i want share with u one thing..fasting the month of ramadan is obligated to each muslim who is capable of fasting and have the opportunity..therefore brother bilal needs to fast the whole month whether u have a game or days off..it is not a personal choice which u do when ever u feel like it...it is a must bro...may ALLAH BLESS U...

  29. What kind of abaya should I wear during hajj? I know that it is very hot down there and it may be uncomfortable to wear a black abaya. Any suggestions? What colour, type of hijab, material etc should I wear? How about shoes and undergarments?
