Zayn Malik turned to Twitter to praise Khabib following his win against Justin Gaethje

British-Pakistani singer Zayn Malik has wreaked havoc on the internet after he reacted to the win of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov on Saturday.

The former member of One Direction turned to Twitter to praise the athlete following his triumph against Justin Gaethje.

“@UFC mashallah Khabib,” wrote Zayn.

The use of the word ‘Masha’Allah’ therein sparked frenzy on social media regarding the singer’s faith as he had previously claimed that he no longer identified himself as a Muslim.

Some fans wondered if the Pillow Talk crooner has reverted while others criticized him for using the word but no longer following the religion.

One user tried to offer a clarification saying: “Eveyone going crazy about "mashallah" should know that even some non-muslims say that and tbh there's a difference between non-practicing muslim and a non-muslim.”

Some fans also used the opportunity to create memes as well.
