Ghanim Al Muftah, a Qatari youth, recites a Quranic verse at the World Cup opening ceremony.

Ghanim Al Muftah, a Qatari youth, recited a Quranic verse during the opening ceremony of the FIFA 2022 World Cup on the grounds of Al-Bayt Stadium in Qatar on Sunday.

During the World Cup ceremony, Al Muftah spoke with renowned American actor Morgan Freeman.

The opening ceremony of the world’s largest soccer tournament featured a Quranic recitation for the first time.

The 20-year-old Qatari recited Surat Al-Hujurat verse 13:

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَـٰكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍۢ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَـٰكُمْ شُعُوبًۭا وَقَبَآئِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوٓا۟ ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ أَتْقَىٰكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌۭ

Translation— O humanity! Indeed, We created you from a male and a female, and made you into peoples and tribes so that you may ˹get to˺ know one another. Surely the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous among you. Allah is truly All-Knowing, All-Aware.

In the dialogue, Freeman replied, “I now see that what unites us is more than what separates us…How can we perpetuate harmony more and more:”

Then, the Qatari Goodwill Ambassador replied, “With tolerance and respect, we can live together under one roof.”

“You are welcome in this tent and everyone is welcome,” Ghanim Al Muftah faced Morgan.
