Is playing American Football haram in Islam?

Why would it be?

I was afraid it might be because you may be harming the body since it is a contact sport.

I think it haram bc it remember people and symbolised to Muslim the time of Muslim war in our beloved prophet time bc in that time disbleaver and enemies if Muslim and Islam where cutting Muslim head at throw the head if Muslim with each other, basically they were playing with it.

only if you are the quarterback. jk. i've seen a high school team with all muslims. i remember a story on them a couple of years ago, that ramadan fell in right during the season, and they couldn't drink during practices. anyway there are muslims in the nfl. i think they now even have an arab. guy outta miami i think. O lineman.

football is certainly dangerous. but then again many things are. they are starting to not let kids head the ball in soccer.

anyway, i imagine it's like most things in islam. you can find some who say halal and some who say haram.
