0 0

A stunning mural honoring the first British Muslim female cricket player Abtaha Maqsood has been unveiled at a primary school in the Small Heath area of Birmingham.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Inspiring Muslim girls to take up the sport, the beautiful artwork was commissioned to celebrate Maqsood’s signing another year with Birmingham Phoenix.

Maqsood, 23, said it was a “surreal experience seeing my face plastered on the wall,” BBC reported.
