@muftimenk Dear Mufti, Assalamu-alaikum. I am aware that half-sleeved pants, which are also haram, are worn by football players, which is cited by many Islamic scholars as proof that football is forbidden. Therefore, is it permissible to support a Muslim team if the game is haram?

Another user chastised Qatar for investing billions of dollars on infrastructure for the 2022 World Cup, despite the fact that millions of Muslims are impoverished and starving.
@muftimenk, is it permissible to play in such attire?
One million Muslims are dying of hunger, while a country with a majority Muslim population spends $220 billion on such a game.
