    "It was not just about them [Mkhitaryan and Lingard, who were subbed at half time].

    "Other players were also not playing really well and obviously, as well as my decision, I don't like to go in the direction of singling out players.

  • Chinese Muslim cycles for four months to Makkah for Hajj

     

    A Muslim man from China cycled for four months to make his way to Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj.

    Mohammed reportedly left his home in Xinjiang, in northwest China, and cycled 5,070 miles before arriving in the Saudi city of Taif, where he received a special welcome by the local cycling club.

    Following a brief stay in the city, he was accompanied by members of the Taif Cycling Club to Makkah, Saudi news site Sabq reported.

    “We were the first cycling club in Saudi Arabia to welcome the Chinese rider and we look forward to other clubs reaching out to him and introducing him to their cities,” Nayef Al Rawas, the head of the Taif club told Sabq.

    On Saturday, China’s State Administration for Religious Affairs (SARA) said that 14,500 Chinese Muslims would perform Hajj this year.

    China has by Friday sent 37 charter flights to carry Chinese Muslims for Hajj, and a total of 11,000 Chinese pilgrims have already arrived in Makkah, Xinhua News Agency said.

    Despite very difficult challenges, the idea of cycling to Saudi Arabia for Hajj or Umrah had often been taken up by Muslims, mainly from Asia.

    In May 2014, a group of Malaysians rode their bicycles from Kuala Lumpur to Madina.

    The 12 men left from the Malaysian capital and made their way on eight motorbikes and a small van across 12 countries with stops in 53 cities.

  • Nigerian Pastor Converts to Islam, Turns Church into Mosque

     

    Rabat – Founder and leader of Apata Adu­ra Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Ekute, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, the former Pastor Adekunle Afolabi attributed his conversion to Islam to a divine message he received from a strange man in white in his dreams.

    After practicing Christianity for over 25 years, the 45-year-old man, now known as Alfa Abubakar Afolabi, is convinced that Islam is “the only religion that leads to heaven.”

    “I was preparing for the anniversary when I started having dreams that eventually led to my conversion,” the former pastor said.

    “At first in the dreams, I noticed my members were sitting on the floor in the church and some of them were covering their heads. I also saw that people were washing their hands and feet before entering the church just like it is done in Islam,” he added.

    When the former pastor converted to Islam, about 150 of his congregation abandoned his church, and his decision was met with different reactions.

    While some of his family relatives and friends respected his decision, the former pastor said that his wife was among those who opposed his choice.

    “The only person who at the time opposed it was my wife, be­cause she was a Christian when I married her.”

    However, many others who “have always known me to be truthful with whatever I’m doing,” respect him, adding that they “also respect my decision, so there hasn’t been any cause for alarm.”

    The church, which used to be a Christian place of worship, has started to receive many Muslims looking for a good place to perform daily prayers.
