Abel Xavier Converts to Islam January 2, 2010

Abel Xavier now Faisal Xavier

Abel Xavier, the former Liverpool and LA Galaxy football player has converted to Islam, may Allah (SWT) increase him in iman, protect him, guide him and keep him on the straight path, amin.

I always love it when people who are known convert to Islam because of the dawah the conversion brings.  People start talking and begin to ask questions which can  lead to a better understanding and may also lead others to accept.

As a Liverpool fan (I’m forgetting he played for the other side) I even more happy because i watched him every week, marvelling at his crazy hair cuts and wondering what colour hair he would be sporting when he ran onto  pitch.

He has now quit playing football and has changed his name to Faisal Xavier, he talked about it in a recent interview, and said:

‘It’s an emotional goodbye and I hope to participate in something very satisfying in a new stage of my life.

‘In moments of grief, I have found comfort in Islam. Slowly, I learned a religion that professes peace, equality, freedom and hope. These are foundations with which I identify.’

Asalamu alaikum brother Faisal and welcome to the Ummah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAWS)!
