Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
What is the ruling on investing in football clubs in Europe?

Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered as follows:
There are many wrong things involved in football, such as showing the ‘awrah (parts of the body that should be covered) and swearing, etc. Taking part in these things is haraam. So let them look for something else, and Allaah will provide for them.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
