Football star, Paul Pogba wgo plays for Manchester United as a midfielder, has opened up on why he converted to Islam in his twenties.
Pogba on why he decided to be a Muslim in an interview with The Times’ new Life Times podcast said he felt really good after praying with his friends once.
“IT CAME BECAUSE I HAVE A LOT OF FRIENDS WHO ARE MUSLIM. WE ALWAYS TALK.
“I WAS QUESTIONING MYSELF IN A LOT OF THINGS, THEN I STARTED DOING MY OWN RESEARCH.
I PRAYED ONCE WITH MY FRIENDS AND I FELT SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I FELT REALLY GOOD.
“SINCE THAT DAY I JUST CARRIED ON. YOU HAVE TO PRAY FIVE TIMES A DAY, THAT’S ONE OF THE PILLARS OF ISLAM. IT’S SOMETHING THAT YOU DO.
“THE MEANING WHY YOU DO IT – YOU ASK FORGIVENESS AND BE THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE, LIKE MY HEALTH AND EVERYTHING.
“IT’S REALLY A RELIGION THAT OPENED MY MIND AND THAT MAKES ME, MAYBE, A BETTER PERSON. YOU THINK MORE ABOUT THE AFTERLIFE.
“THIS LIFE HAS A TEST. LIKE WHEN I’M WITH YOU, HERE. EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT A MUSLIM, YOU ARE A NORMAL HUMAN. YOU HAVE A HUMAN RELATIONSHIP AND RESPECT YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE, WHAT RELIGION YOU ARE, WHAT COLOUR AND EVERYTHING.
“ISLAM IS JUST THIS – RESPECT OF THE HUMANITY AND EVERYTHING.”
