A video purportedly showing a young girl's reaction to hearing the call to prayer during the World Cup in Qatar has gone viral on social media.
Misbar investigated the circulating video and found the claim to be misleading.
Misbar discovered the video making the rounds to be outdated after conducting a thorough reverse image search.
Was an American girl surprised by the call to prayer in Qatar?
Contrary to claims, the video was recorded in the Dubai Mall in the United Arab Emirates, not in Qatar.
The clip was first posted to YouTube on October 10, 2012.
The video’s caption reads, "Quick clip of our first trip into the city (Dubai Mall), and the first time hearing the Call to Prayer. Pretty cool."
The video's publisher stated in the video's caption that he is not a Muslim, but he is sharing his experiences to demonstrate what life is like in the Middle East.
