Russia (bbabo.net), - Muftis of the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of the Russian Federation prayed for figure skater Kamila Valieva. They read a dua - a prayer appeal to the Almighty - with a request to resolve the situation with the athlete.
"Our voice was heard. We wish Valieva victories and confidently represent our country in such important competitions," RIA Novosti quotes Rushan Abbyasov, deputy chairman of the Spiritual Administration of Muslims.
In turn, the Mufti of Moscow, Ildar Alyautdinov, said that religious figures can rarely find time to follow sports competitions, but what happened at the Olympics forced them to draw attention to themselves. "I would like to express my full support to our athlete and wish her to carry the banner of her country with dignity," he said.
According to the head of Moscow Muslims, it is faith that helps to overcome any challenges. "I see an unfair attitude towards our figure skater from international organizations. This applies not only to Valieva, but also to the members of the national team and the country as a whole. I would like to wish justice to prevail," the mufti emphasized.
