Alhamdullilah, we all praise to Allah, another famous person become a muslim.
Williams converted two years ago, before he returned to New Zealand to play rugby, and requested halal food during the All Blacks’ northern hemisphere tour last year, the newspaper said.
Friends said he regularly attends Friday prayer sessions at a Christchurch mosque.
Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand first vice-president Javed Khan told the Herald Williams’ allegiance was commonly known among the Muslim community.
“He is practising the religion and he is a great role model for the youngsters. We will pray to Allah that he will win the World Cup for us. Everyone talks about it, you know. The Muslim community, everyone knows everyone, you know.”
Since converting to Islam, Williams has put a string of embarrassing alcohol-related incidents behind him.
