Dear scholars, I want to ask if a Muslim who plays professional soccer can eat on the day he has a match? With soccer he earns a living for his family. There are hundreds of Muslims playing in Europe and they are dealing with this question. I couldn't find a fatwa about this important subject. Thank you for your time.
Salaam alaikoem,Dear scholars, please can you tell me if a professional soccer player (football) can eat on the day he must play a match. Some people say that this counts on the exception of hard work. This soccerplayer earns his money with playing this sport. Some player eat on the matchday, but on the other days when there are trainings they fast. This question is important because hundreds of professional soccer players en other sportsmen in Europe have to deal with this dilemma. For so far there is no fatwa on this matter. Jazak Allah Khairan for your time. Salaam alaikoem.

Dear Sheikh, As-Salam `Alaykum. During the World Cup competitions, it may happen that the time of Friday Prayer coincides with the time of a soccer match that tends to be so important to a nation, due to some reasons: being the first time for the national team to qualify for the World Cup, for instance, or due to having the soccer stigmatized with politics. Is it permissible for people in such occasions to delay the prayer?
As-Salamu `Alaykum. I want to know if wearing shorts while playing football or wearing swimming costumes in a swimming pool is permissible, while there are no females around.
Dear Sheikh! What do you think of being fervent supporter of a sporting club or a certain football team?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Here in the UK many people play Fantasy Football based on the English Soccer Premiership. This is basically where you pick a team of 11 players and for every goal they score you get a point. At the end of the season, a cup is awarded to the winner. While there are free ones available, the one I am looking at charges £2.50. Is this classed as gambling? Jazakum Allah khayran.
