all about modest apparel - injuries and victories and alcohol

Injuries & Victories: What's the Scoop on Alcohol in Both Cases?

Let's talk about something slightly off-topic while still remaining connected to the theme of women who dress modestly and sports. We'll explore the use of alcohol in sports injury and wound treatment, considering various religious perspectives.

Starting with our Jewish athletes, alcohol usage isn't a concern, as they have Kosher wine, making it a non-issue in this context.

There's a common misconception surrounding Pentecostal and Mormon athletes, suggesting they are strictly forbidden from consuming alcohol. However, the reality is that they are encouraged to abstain from it to avoid potential sinful actions. When it comes to treating wounds and injuries, though, the use of sanitizers, antibacterial ointments, and antiseptic ointments containing alcohol is perfectly acceptable for them.

For Muslim athletes, there are Islamic laws that forbid the use of alcohol. Nevertheless, numerous conferences and documents have addressed this issue, and the consensus is that when it comes to treating sports injuries and wounds, using alcohol-based sanitizers and ointments is deemed acceptable within their religious beliefs.

Regarding the use of champagne for victory celebrations, you won't typically see this with a Muslim team. However, if there is a team with a Muslim player, their fellow teammates, especially the captain, are considerate of the Muslim player's beliefs and refrain from spraying champagne while the player is nearby.

Understanding these religious perspectives helps promote inclusivity and respect within the sports community. By recognizing and accommodating varying beliefs, we can ensure a positive and supportive environment for all athletes, regardless of their cultural or religious background.
