“It took a few years for the process, but I found Allah, I found Islam and it really allowed me to turn the wildness in myself into positivity.
In today’s society it is no secret that a lot of us Muslims have been forced to almost be embarrassed to be Muslim.
For me, I am so proud to be a Muslim – the honesty that it has, what it stands for and what it can give. When I see other sportsmen who are out there and proud, wow it is such a beautiful thing.“
– Sonny Bill Williams, New Zealand professional rugby league footballer
