Cristiano Ronaldo’s message of ‘Assalam Alaikum’ to his Muslim followers has gone viral on social media.
Cristiano Ronaldo, the world-famous footballer, has once again surprised his admirers throughout the world with his recent display of cultural respect. Ronaldo cordially greeted his Muslim followers during a visit to Al-Nassr’s training camp in Portugal, using the customary Arabic word “Assalam Alaikum,” which translates to “peace be upon you.” This touching gesture was captured in a video posted by Al-Nassr that quickly went popular on social media.
Ronaldo’s act of inclusivity not only demonstrated his openness to engage with people from different cultures, but it also stressed the value of mutual respect and admiration.
The football legend has always demonstrated respect for many cultural traditions, particularly those followed by Muslims. Previously, he celebrated a goal by doing a Sajdah, like Muslim players do. Ronaldo has been able to develop a closer connection with his Muslim followers and promote harmony within the football world by embracing these rituals.
One of the key reasons for the mutual respect between Ronaldo and his supporters, particularly during his stint in Saudi Arabia, was the footballer’s inclusive outlook.
