After reading this article about Muslims praying at a West Ham football match, and being verbally abused by other supporters of the same team, I started wondering if this whole question about praying wherever a person wants is anyone else’s problem at all. I mean first of all, a Muslim has to pray when he has to pray. It’s amazing the guys were at a match and still remembered to pray to their creator.
I personally feel that anyone no matter if it’s a Muslim or not, should have the right to pray as they wish. In the case of the Muslims, they just need a place anywhere on the corner to due their five times a day duty. And if someone has an issue with it, or feels intimidated by it, maybe they need to get a life, and start worrying about more serious things, for example the hate they are spewing and the nonsense they come up with trying to dramatize everything.
The amazing thing was that the guys prayed in the break, and found a quite corner. Despite that people have issues, well in the Prophet Muhammad’s pbuh time mushrikeen (non-Muslims) did similar things, so it’s nothing new. But when you got to pray, you got to pray. Obviously looking at this situation, as a Muslim i fully support these guys!
My way of looking at things can be seen throughout my articles. I focus mostly on what's happening and then I attempt to present an honest view about it. I am not a big fan of disputes, but am in no way mute about things that need a voice either.
