Blackburn Rovers Gets Praise over the Opening of a Masjid

Translator: Fatıma Nur Dinçer

Islam is a religion of tolerance and respect. When these virtues, which every Muslim should have, are also shown towards us, it is clear that good results emerge and that the sense of unity and solidarity in society is strengthened. A new step in this path was taken by England’s football team “Blackburn Rovers”.

Right before the first match of the season, the team announced from their official Twitter account that there will be space allowed for Muslims to before their evening prays. The team received great praise from the public in response to this gesture.

The team’s gesture was highly appreciated on social media. Here are some of the comments posted: 

Excellent example, congratulations Black Rovers” “What a notable example of solidarity, thank you.” “I’m a Liverpool fan but it’s a nice gesture. Good luck on your future matches.” “Blackburn is the champion team for me.

Sadly, the Blackburn Rovers did not win the match against Morecambe, but with their gesture, they took a place in the hearts of hundreds of people.

The good news is not limited to the Blackburn Rovers team. Premier League clubs such as Arsenal, Manchester City, and Everton have allocated mosques in their buildings so that the number of increasing Muslim players, employees, and fans can perform their prayers. The league also has its own Muslim chaplain.

This situation has inspired teams such as Newcastle, Sunderland, Swansea City, Bournemouth, Norwich City, and Watford to announce that they would be happy to assist in this matter on matchday upon request.
