    I will need help with this one.
    Also I am not sure that all are Muslims, but it is likely.

    Mido...Tuncay
    Boukari...Karimi...Emre...Zidan
    Yakin...Trabelsi

    subs:
    Hashemian
    Karadeniz
    basturk
    Hakin Yakin

    I can't think of anymore.

    Edit: I would have preferred to not do it by religion, instead by region, but I wanted a way to include north Africa, Iran, and Turkey.

    Henry is a muslim for sure and so is Patrick Vieira I think. But does it really matter though?

    Is the ivory coast a muslim nation? (jw) That would possibly add Akale and Drogba.

    Not definitive, but the religious breakdown on Mauritius per the CIA Factbook shows it's possible:

    Religions:

    Hindu 52%, Christian 28.3% (Roman Catholic 26%, Protestant 2.3%), Muslim 16.6%, other 3.1%

    I thought that Henry and Anelka were both originally from Martinique (in the Caribbean)?

    I believe Henry's father is a White Frenchman. Only his mother is from Martinique. If thats the case i'm not sure he would have been raised a Muslim.

    Man, talk about a thread with everyone (including me) talking about things we know nothing about (like where peopel are from and if they are Muslim or not). :)

    Actually, upon further investigation it looks like his father was from the Caribbean also. I stand corrected.

    don't forget zidane.

    no, you're wrong. shi'ite muslims come from persian countrys. everyone else is sunni, skin colour has nothing to do with it.

    I was wondering this for a long time. Zidane has refused to reveal his religion, but both his parents are Muslim. Check this out faousmuslim.com. He is probably a Muslim or rise a Muslim.

    Judging by the little details that are out there about his faith, I strongly suspect he belongs to no religion in particular. He is most certainly not a practicing Muslim.

    zidane is and will always be muslim, you can't ever escape that. but we call people like him kafir's(bad muslims who don't follow the religion).

    Wow. Even when pretending, that was very poorly done.
