A video has gone viral on social media, claiming that around 120 people have converted to Islam during the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
The video is being shared with a caption: Alhamdulillah, one hundred twenty (120) non-Muslims in Qatar accepted Islam and reached the way of the paradise. May Allah bless them.

NewsMobile fact-checked the above video, and found it to be old.
Running the keyframes of the video through a Reverse Image Search, we traced the same video uploaded on YouTube in March 2018. The title of the video reads:60 Filipinos convert to Islam.
The same video had been uploaded by another YouTube channel in March 2018 with a title: Converting 60 Filipinos to Islam now at Challenger Company in Al-Shahaniya in Doha… Qatar… Praise be to God, Lord of the Worlds.
NewsMobile independently couldn’t verify the origin of the video. Now, it is clear that the video is outdated and not related to the recent FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
