Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim. You know what? I started to feel really upset tonight, when I realized that the BBC will not going to show the opening ceremony in the first Middle Eastern Muslim country to ever host the World Cup Subhanallah I felt this rage and upset rising in me. And especially at the absolute disrespect of replacing that opening ceremony which was so hard worked on for months and planned for you that they weren't going to show it. It was so hurtful and disrespectful. But then I realized Subhan Allah, they were never meant to show it. Because Allah to Allah is in control of all things. And the BBC is dishonored itself. You thought that you were disrespecting Qatar this
evening with that pathetic, frankly, long drawn out draggy
mealy mouthed virtue signaling joke of a news report, honestly, I've never known anything like it. I mean, you know, Muslims would never behave like this when people are hosting us Subhanallah that's what it means to host the World Cup. It's to invite people in and to say, Come, taste our culture, eat with us, sit with us for a while, let's enjoy this time together. And the BBC that bastion of British values behaves like this. I Shame shame on you. And then I realized I was sad because the Quran was not going to be played to a billion people. But you know what? Allah chooses who gets to hear the Holy Quran, brothers and sisters in footballing interests and also, my dear Muslim family,
Allah decides, and if you were not allowed to hear it on the BBC and ITV tonight, then go in search of it yourself.
The Holy Quran says, But if Allah had willed, they would not have associated others with him. We have not made you their guardian, nor are you their keeper. In other words, the message can't be given to everyone even the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, could not reach one of his uncle's who loved him dearly. The Quran further says, Indeed, oh Muhammad, you do not guide whom you like. But Allah guides whom He wills and he is most knowing of the rightly guided. And finally, to my dear brothers and sisters in Qatar who may have a moment a moment of disappointment tonight, the team's not there and your wonderful doubt that you planned in other words to share it sharing moment didn't
happen as you planned. Remember this but they plan and Allah plans and Allah is the best of planners, you still have the World Cup, my friends, you're still going to be amazing host and if Allah wills, a lot of hearts are going to get changed. May Allah bless you. And to the BBC. I say Shame on you, but it's alive as well. You missed out you denied your viewers the chance to access something wonderful.
