Ahead of the start of Ramadan 2021, Nujum Sports paid a visit to Canalside to hand deliver their Ramadan packages to some of Huddersfield Town’s Academy players.
Nujum Sports were set up in 2020 with the aim of promoting a culture of educational excellence for the Muslim athletes, from within a caring and secure Islamic environment enriched with the values of discipline, mutual care and respect which extends beyond and in to the wider community.

Ahead of Ramadan 2021, Nujum Sports decided to bring together 72 professional clubs to better understand how they can support their players during the Muslim month of Ramadan and celebrate the huge number of Muslim players who play in the various leagues in the UK.
Ebadur Rahman, CEO and Founder of Nujum Sports, commented on what Nassim Kherbouche, Brahima Diarra and Etienne Camara will get from their packs.
“Each of the packs contains ZamZam water, which is a holy water from Saudi Arabia, prayer beads, dates, a special perfume and honey.
“It’s important that we provide support to the Muslim players because Ramadan is a special time for them and especially with lockdown at the moment players will be alone breaking their fast.
“It’s important they feel a sense of community and by providing this little bit of support we hope this Ramadan can be a special one for them.”
Under-19s defender Nassim Kherbouche spoke about what Ramadan means to him personally.
“Ramadan is a month where I fast from sunrise to sunset. I get really close to my religion and understand it more.
“Obviously, I train while fasting which is really hard mentally and physically. I see all my teammates with a lot of energy in sessions, so that’s a big mental challenge for me.”
Mustapha Olagunju, who’s currently on loan at Port Vale, and Huddersfield Town First Team’s Naby Sarr and Isaac Mbenza also received Ramadan packages.
