The day before yesterday there was news of 558 people reading Kalma and today famous footballer Cristiano Ronaldo accepted Islam after being impressed by the Islamic attitude of the Qatar government and Zakir Naik’s speech. congratulations.” – English Translation

Fact Check

On keyword search, the DFRAC team found no such official news of Ronaldo converting to Islam. Moreover, in the infographic, there are three different pictures merged together. On reverse image search we found that all three images are old and deceptive.

The first picture where Ronaldo is wearing a white gown and a headscarf can be seen in this tweet from 2014.

The next picture in which Ronaldo is holding a photo frame which Arabic words which mean “there is no God but Allah” is photoshopped.
