: Hashim Amla is popular South African cricketer and has been known as a very strict believer and follower of Islam. Amla in the past refused to wear the logo of a beer making company, Castle. This company is the official sponsors of team South Africa.
Amla is happy to pay a 500 dollar fine for not wearing the logo as he thinks wearing of it is an act against the teachings of Islam. Islam forbids Muslims from drinking alcohol.
He again showed the strength of his faith when Amla refused to give a scheduled interview. The anchor was wearing skirt and low neck top and Amla was clearly disturbed to see her dressing so he apologized and refused to appear for the interview.
The host was then asked by the production team to change her outfit and cover herself as much as possible. After she changed her outfit only then Amla agreed to talk.
May Allaah reward and keep him firm upon deen. Aameen
