The Qatar government unveiled Hadith murals in an effort to introduce Islam to incoming fans from around the world.
In addition to hosting the eagerly awaited FIFA World Cup, Qatar is taking advantage of the chance to share its customs, culture, and core values with the rest of the world.
Murals carry sayings of the Holy Prophet on mercy, charity, and good deeds. These have been placed all over the streets in Qatar. “Every good deed is a charity”, “He who is not merciful to others, will not be treated mercifully”, and “Guard yourself against the Hellfire, even with half of a date in charity. If one cannot find it, then with a kind word” were some of the Prophetic hadiths shared. Pictures of the murals are going viral on social media.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup will start on November 20 and run until December 18. The Middle East will be hosting the FIFA World Cup for the first time. The FIFA World Cup 2022: Street Child was held in Qatar last month. The competition featured 28 teams from 25 different nations. The event featured 13 girls’ teams and 15 boys’ teams representing refugees and displaced children.
According to John Wroe, co-founder, and CEO of Street Children United, the event was planned to help these children feel loved.
“This World Cup is for people who have experienced stigma. We want you to know that we love you. We say, “Come to the front of the queue,” to people who are often refused entry, shooed away, or even rounded up. You matter, Wroe remarked.
