Social media nigerian Muslims call saudi Arabia allowing female football haram

Nigerian football is one of the biggest in Africa at all levels, from local to international, with the national female team the leading team in terms of trophies and achievement producing superstars like Azizat Oshoala, a Muslim, yet some Muslims still see female football as haram.

When Daily Nigerian publisher, Jaafar Jaafar, shared the story of the first Saudi Arabian female team published by his online on his Facebook page, I doubt if he expected the reaction from many Muslims in Northern Nigeria especially.

Northern Nigeria is one place where football is watched like no other place in Nigeria. Young men gather in football centers weekly where European football in shown with many engaging in bet games, but the reaction over female football in Saudi Arabia was complete rejection with many seeing it as haram.

“The Present Saudi Arabia Ruling Isn’t Protecting The Respect Of Women And Islam. Very Disgracing.” Jibreel Amir Mohammad responded to Jaafar Jaafar’s Daily Nigerian story. But this is just the beginning.

“This is pathetic! Saudi with female football club. Is this a nightmare?” Ahmed Yabarik Musa wrote.

“Rest in peace. Saudi Arabia woman😭😭🙏” Aliyu Haydar Ibrahem Suleyman.

“The Muslims of the world are indeed saddened by this, and we ask God to bring an end to this heir apparent, Jewish-minded prince. It is definitely the end of the world.
“O Allah, continue to protect your Islam and Muslims from the influence of the hunting dogs of the Jews.” One Abu Unaisarh wrote.

Sadam S Kano simply said it is the, “End of the world 🌎”

“what is the benefit showing us is this what we need ? Is this tagged as progress? Rubbish” wrote Umar Tahir.

“Please the West and incur God’s wrath. and the Saudi royal family made their choice.
They choose West and dumped God.
Even though had been too patient and too kind to them.” From Hassan Mohammed.

“But same Saudi Arabia suspended hajj for two consecutive years because of fair of Covid 19. Is it not stupidity?” Habu Mohammed Shabewa

Most of the commentators wrote in Hausa language expressing the same sentiment.

Some Muslims also considered carreers like being an actress as not for females even though many people all sorts of movies. Some of these led to the cancellation of Film Village in Kano some years back.
