In every culture, sports are vital. Sport unites people despite physical and cultural divides, promoting them through educational institutions and social platforms. Physical and mental health may be improved by these activities. However, many of these gatherings exclude Muslims. Like other physical cultures, sport has been secularised, a crucial term of Westernization. This affects Muslim sports participation, especially in the 21st century (Industrial Revolution 4.0). The view and knowledge of Maqāṣid Al-Sharī’ah in the context of sport is vital to every practising Muslim because it hasn't been thoroughly addressed. This paper explains the importance of Maqāṣid Al-Sharī’ah in Muslim sports participation. It also addresses the problems practising Muslims confront in sports. We used secondary sources, such as peer-reviewed journals and monographs, to undertake this study. A content analysis determined the different opinions on the themes. We found Muslim scholars abandoned sports and religion research. Maqāṣid Al-Sharī’ah is likewise exceedingly exclusive, according to the discovery. In addition, practising Muslims confront additional barriers when engaging in sports, requiring the conversation and interpretation of sports specialists. Instead of adding primarily to fresh knowledge, this essay can also aid sports and education authorities, especially in most Muslim-populated nations.
