Manchester United’s Paul Pogba starts off Ramadan by going on pilgrimage to Mecca

It’s the Ramadan period for the Muslim faithful and Paul Pogba, a Muslim, decided to start the fasting season by going to Mecca for the non-mandatory Umrah pilgrimage.

The Manchester United player took the trip to Saudi Arabia while other footballers are at their usual post-season hotspots like Las Vegas and Dubai. 

Pogba shared the news of his journey on his Instagram account. He put up a video of him leaving his Manchester apartment with a suitcase. He added the caption:

"On my way to go say thank you for this season. See you soon Manchester! En route to my prayers."

He also posted a clip of him at the holy site and images with the captions "most beautiful thing I've seen in my life" and "happy Ramadan".

This will not be his first visit to the Holy City.  He had visited Mecca before to perform the Hajj, a journey every adult Muslim is expected to make at least once in their life. For the duration of his present visit, Pogba is expected to adhere to the religious festival of Ramadan by fasting  until June 24.

Below is one of the videos from his trip.

Or is 'Paul' not suppose to be a Christian name.
Meanwhile l stand to be corrected if proven otherwise.

Anonymous 11:34, Muslims are allowed to use any name so long as it does not connote negativity or idolatry. So a "Muslim name" can be Arabic, Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, English, Russian......you get the gist....

You are a confused fellow. Must you comment at all. If every Muslim has a dagger how many of your relatives has it been used on? Some of you just comment as if ur brain is below your feet.

So many people are so ignorant of a Muslim and Islam. Whether u like it not Islam is a religious of peace ✌. The name u bear doesn't matter, so far follow the doctrine.

Your porous brain is still deceiving you, indeed I can withnes the peace in Muslim states and countries. The earlier you realise that there is no peace in Islam the better for you.
