if u mean sports personality , there are many.




Work for Jannah by doing good deeds instead of merely wishing for it. Jannah is deed-based not dream-based. ♥

{The photo shows Eric Abidal, French Muslim football player, reading the Qur'an, while he was on his way to South Africa for the World Cup. Three of the players on the French team are Muslim. This guy also bought a masjid in Spain to save it from being destroyed. Masha Allah. May Allah give him victory in both worlds & guide all Muslims to their Lord's Pleasure & Jannah! Aameen!}

ILoveAllaah

South African Cricketer Hashim Amla Example of a True Muslim




South African Cricketer Hashim Amla has set up an example of a Practical Muslim Celebrity who is not only a great Cricketer but also a Complete Muslim. Hashim Amla follows Islam in his Practical Life as well as when he is on the Ground to play Cricket. Following are Some Examples which shows his greatness.

Few Years Back South African Cricket Board done a agreement with a Wine Company. Hashim Amla refused to wear the Shirt of South African Team that was having Logo of that Wine Company because Wine is Forbidden In Islam and he not wanted to become part of Promotional Campaign of that Wine Company by Wearing the shirt.. He paid $500 Dollars Fine every month for not wearing the Shirt with Wine Logo but he never wear that Shirt. Hashim Amla also refused to play in Indian Premier League (IPL) due to Vulgarity in that Tournament .


He would have easily earned millions of Dollars from IPL but he not done this because he was practical Muslim. Other Muslim Celebrities also need to learn lesson from Hashim Amla for whom Islam is more important than any other thing

Abdullah brothers will take break for religious reasons





By Kyle Ratke, USA TODAY




Updated 2012-06-24 7:26 PM





Minnesota Vikings safety Husain Abdullah (39) intercepts a pass intended for Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Kellen Winslow (82) during the 2012 NFL season.

Bruce Kluckhohn, US Presswire




While brothers Husain and Hamza Abdullah have not retired, the two defensive backs will be taking the 2012 season off despite having job opportunities around the NFL. According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Profootballtalk.com, the brothers will be taking the season off to pilgrimage to Mecca as part of their Islamic faith.





The Abdullah brothers have made their religion a priority throughout their NFL careers. During Ramadan, the brothers have fasted from sunup to sundown. Ramadan typically falls during training camp.





"I visited Makkah, Saudi Arabia in March and a strong sense of urgency overcame me to attend 'Hajj' in October," Husain said. "I love the game of football, but it would directly coincide with my pilgrimage. So, I'm taking some time off."
Safety Husain, 26, started in all nine games in which he appeared last season for the Minnesota Vikings, finishing with 44 tackles, a sack and an interception. The Vikings offered Husain a contract during the offseason, and he likely would have started for the team had he accepted.



He was one of the team's better defensive backs last season.
Hamza, 28, appeared in all 16 games last season for the Arizona Cardinals, mostly on special teams. He has played for three teams during his seven-year career.





Husain informed the Vikings of his decision. The team also has lost cornerback Asher Allen, who retired unexpectedly at 24 this offseason. It might be a difficult season for the Minnesota defensive backs against NFC North quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford and Jay Cutler.
Both brothers say they hope to return to the NFL in 2013.

NICOSIA -- Iran's best female racing car driver Laleh Seddigh was awarded on March 17 her International Racing Driving License during the BMW School Series at the Bahrain International Circuit in Manama.

Seddigh, a PhD student from Tehran, is considered to be one of the most promising-ever racing drivers in Iran. She has even outperformed the best male racing drivers in the country.

Seddigh's driving skills have earned her the nickname "a little Schumacher" after the German Formula One champion.

Asked by the BBC how men felt about her success, Seddigh, 28, replied, "Most of them, I think, are jealous, and I don't care about that."

"I am just going and going and hoping to be champion in the next years and I will really try to achieve that goal," she added.

Seddigh said that she hoped that her example would inspire more women to take up car racing. Indeed, the sport is seen to be attracting growing numbers of Iranian women.

Asalaamu Alaikum,

In a football match, he was going to beat this other footballer up (David Villa) because he insulted Islam.



Though people say it's unlikely he insulted Islam, because in his team, there are 3 other Muslims; Abidal, Keita and Afellay. Allahu Allam.

And other Muslim footballers;

New Muslim footballer.

Yesterday, Abanda Herman, a Cameroon footballer who play as defender in Persib FC Bandung, Indonesia, declared shahadah in masdjid Nurul Iman Bandung City and became a new Muslim with name Ahmad Abanda Herman.

Persib FC manager, Hajj Umuh Muchtar said "Abanda actually had long wanted to convert to Islam, but I gave time to him to reflect back on it, do not let him move conviction because of compulsion. But he did reveal that he was very serious and full awareness of heart wanted to embrace Islam. I welcome and emotion"

Abanda interested in choosing Islam because he saw in Islam all is set up in such a way like in prayers or doing anything. Moreover, he often saw his colleagues in Persib FC perform congregational prayers wherever and whenever they are, both being in Bandung and being out of town on tour.

"I'm glad to see my fellow perform congregational prayer, it made me interested to learn Islam. I realized that Islam is the perfect religion for mankind," he said.
