Posted on 08/09/2010 12:52:30 PM PDT by Islaminaction
Once again we see Islam being brought into the workplace. Today we learn that Minnesota Vikings safety Husain Abdullah, has decided that fasting and playing at a lower level, is more important than giving it his all for the team.
Even while sprinting in the heat and humidity during drills, sometimes in full pads, Abdullah is adamant about his faith. He will not allow himself so much as a cup of water until the sun sets and before it rises.
Im putting nothing before God, nothing before my religion, Abdullah said. This is something I choose to do, not something I have to do. So Im always going to fast.

It includes no water, creating a serious dehydration risk. But see my previous post, he doesn't have to go without water.
Speaking of Tebow, have you seen his new haircut?
One more time, what slurs? Intelligent people do not make excuses for the Sharia movement that is happening within America. They stand up to try and protect the lives of their family’s future generations.
Here is more on the Sharia movement in America.
Islam/Sharia is advancing faster than ever here, with Obama in office.
North Carolina: Sharia Academy Kick Off!
NY: Islamic School/Community Teaching Children Sharia
Koran Tutoring Available, the Sharia way
Paltalk July 31St: Global Islamic Conference, Plotting World Domination
New Jersey: The Ground has Been Broken for 17 Acre pro-Sharia Islamic Center
That fear mongering label is well used by the left...
"Pigskin" is an euphemism - they are made of leather (cow-based), verified by Wilson, the maker of NFL's footballs.
“Ever hear of a baseball player by the name of Sandy Koufax? Being Jewish, he refused to pitch the first game of the World Series in 1965. The LA Dodgers went on to lose that game 8-2.”
I remember Sandy well. He was one of my baseball idols growing up. Forgot about his 65 Series - Yom Kippur thingy. Found this interesting in wiki:
“In 1962, the Dodgers moved from Los Angeles Coliseum, which had a 250-foot left field line, to pitcher-friendly Dodger Stadium. The new park had a large foul territory and a comparatively poor hitting background. Koufax was an immediate beneficiary of the change, lowering his home ERA from 4.29 to 1.75.”
Islam advancing in America should be the business of all non-Muslims. If not our families future generations will suffer.
Hell, you better hope his pads are pads and not c4. He may decided to blow up the Giants. These creeps know no bounds.
Give him a full medicial check up sign a hold harmless agreement in regards to his fasting and move on
If his numbers tank trade him
End of story
Would have been funny if he’d played college ball at Arkansas.
Depriving one self of water when needed isn’t religously wise, only putting yourself at the gate to valhala.
Move on to what, his next demand?
kind of - but like that other guy said, since Sandy wasn’t an everyday player and the holidays are jsut single days, it was easy to work around them. I wonder if he even bothered to show up to the park on Yom Kippur?
Sorry...I keep forgetting the necessity of the /sarc tags
It being a desert religion there’s always exceptions. Then of course technology, little bit of water retention pills along with a lot of water before sunrise and he’s good to go. I think it’s a sign of how boring this off season is that this is even a story, Brett’s being fairly quiet, nobody is getting out of jail, nobody seems to be on their way to jail, but there still needs to be NFL stories for ESPN.
“Hakeem Olajuwon took that approach during Ramadan with the Houston Rockets. I think it made a great player even greater in his case.”
I thought of Olajuwon when I read this. I have always respected Hakeem and admired his commitment to his faith. If all Muslims were like Hakeem, we wouldn’t be having these problems.
maybe the car wash that he’d be working at if not for the NFL would be more accomodating.
Why is it going to end before the season begins?
Ohhhhh, never thought of that.
September 9th is the last day of Ramadan, the Vikes open the season that night so there might be a couple of minutes of overlap but basically it’ll be done. If the Vikes weren’t opening the season he’d have a couple of days but they’re in the Thursday night opener.
