Love of Game vs. Love of God: Is There an Organic Connection between The Two?
[Quote – 210]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

“Those who love football find football.

And those who love soccer or baseball find soccer and baseball.

In the same way, those who love God find God.

So, it is a question of what it is that you love or seek most in life.

And how well and how hard you do so.

And in what contexts and places.

It would be interesting to know how Love of God intersects with Love of Game in the lives of many, or at least some, of the high-end football, soccer and baseball players in the world.” (Dr. Pasha)
