A photo shows Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani recently greeting Zakir Naik during the 2022 World Cup.
Social media users recently shared a photo purporting to show Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani greeting Zakir Naik at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Misbar has investigated the claim and found it to be misleading.
The photo was posted in December 2019 on Zakir Naik's Facebook page.
Dr. Zakir Naik captioned the photo, "Dr. Zakir Naik in Conversation with Shaikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Ameer of the State of Qatar."
The image was also posted on the Islamic preacher's website with the caption, "Dr. Zakir Naik in 2019 with Shaikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani."
