What unites us here in this moment is so much greater than what divides us.

85-year-old American actor, director, and narrator and Ghanim from Qatar wowed football fans across the world at the colorful opening ceremony of this year’s edition of the biggest world football competition taking place in Qatar

“This is 20-year-old Qatari, Ghanim Al-Muftah. He starred alongside Morgan Freeman and recited the #Quran in the #QatarWorldCup2022 opening ceremony.

Ghanim was born with a rare condition known as Caudal Regression Syndrome, affecting the development of the lower half of the body.

Many suggested his mother abort Ghanim but she decided to have him: “I will be his left leg and you will be his right leg”.

Ghanim became Qatar's youngest entrepreneur, having founded an ice-cream business. He plays multiple sports despite physical disabilities. At school, Ghanim used to play football wearing shoes on his hands and would chase after the ball with his "normal-sized" friends.

Rather than allowing the condition to stunt his life, Ghanim has learned to overcome obstacles with positivity. He is currently pursuing his university degree, majoring in political sciences with a goal of becoming a diplomat.”

During the world cup opening ceremony in Qatar Ghanim along with Morgan free man emphatically wowed soccer fans after an epic collabo of narration about the importance of unity of different nations, races, and people as compared to their political divisions.

"What Unites us this day is far much important than what divides us" this message was deeply felt and appreciated.
