    Bruh, they are south slavic eastern europeans. They have absolutely nothing in common with arabs.
    As we say in Bosnia: If you had just stayed silent, you would have stayed a wise man.

    In Islam the child takes the religion after the father, so if the child has a muslim father the child becomes muslim. So shouldn’t Zlatan be muslim?
