I have been an online writer for over seven years. My articles often focus on sports, football in particular.
Many football fans across the world wonder which footballers in the top European leagues are Muslim. I know religion isn't important in football, baseball, or any other sport (it's performance that matters), but it doesn't hurt to know which of the world's famous soccer players are Muslim.
Without a doubt, there are hundreds of Muslim footballers out there. This article lists those who play in competitive leagues, like the English premier leagues, Spanish Laliga, German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A, and French League 1. There is speculation that Robin Van Persie, Thierry Henry, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are Muslim, but I do not include them in this list because they have not confirmed that they follow the Islamic faith.

What Do You Think?
While fans only truly care about how players perform, it can be insightful to learn about a player's personal life and choices. There are so many talented players who didn't make this list, and there is healthy debate and discussion over any sort of list like this. What do you think? Are these the top Muslim football players in the world?
