It completely changed me, it made me see clear in life. Above all, it made me peaceful.Paul Pogba in a Podcast
He also explained how his friends helped him practice Islam.
It happened to me because a lot of my firends were Muslims. And i started to question myself about different things. I did my own research and realized that praying indeed makes me feel different, feel good. And since that day, i never leave prayer.
Pogba also said that Islam is highly misunderstood by the public as well as misrepresented by the western media. He also said that Islam is the most beautiful thing.
He also said that praying five times a day is a must as well as he prays five times to seek Allah’s forgiveness for the sins he has committed and to thank him for everything he gave him.
Islam indeed opened my mind and made me a better person. This life is a test, but Islam prepares us for the Afterlife.Paul Pogba
He insisted that Islam teaches to respect everything, without seeing if the other person is a Muslim or not. It helps us build a relationship with Muslims and Muslims should also respect everyone, and others should also respect Muslims, no matter what religion or color you belong to.
