Interestingly, Henry Winter is the brother of Skeikh Abdal Hakim Murad, the dean of the Cambridge Muslim College.

Abdal Hakim, formerly Timothy John Winter, is an English academic, theologian and Islamic scholar who became Muslim in 1979.

A few hours before the launch of World Cup 2022, Qatar launched several initiatives to introduce Islam to visitors during the international tournament.

For example, new QR codes were added in Qatar hotels guest-rooms that introduce visitors to Islam and Qatari culture in all languages.

Qatar also placed several murals across the country with hadiths of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to introduce Islam to incoming World Cup fans.
