People want to know every detail
In case of any sport, people try to know every possible detail about a player after he rises to fame. It is the same for Caicedo. During matches he has often been seen kneeling down and praying.
Recently, before coming on the pitch against West Ham, Caicedo was seen praying in a way Muslims pray and ask for dua. After full-time he was seen praying in the Sujud posture.
This has caused many fans to speculate which religion he belongs to. After seeing him in the posture of the Islamic Sujud some fans are asking if he is a Muslim.
Is Moisés Caicedo a Muslim?
However, on following his Instagram account it can be clearly seen that the player is a devout follower of Jesus Christ. He was born to Christian parents in his home country of Ecuador and his beliefs and values are based on Christianity.
The only reason why some fans think he is a Muslim is that he kneels down like Muslim players like Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
The Islamic Sujud is a gesture of prostration and submission to God but it is also done by Caicedo who being a Christian expresses his faith and gratitude to God in his own way.
For Moisés Caicedo it is his way of thanking God for all He has given to him and also because it is a sign of reverence and humility.
Thus, by closely following him on social media and watching his interviews it will be evident that Moisés Caicedo performs the Islamic Sujud as a gesture of personal devotion.
