I seek refuge in Allah (The One God) from the Satan (devil) the cursed, the rejected
With the name of ALLAH (swt) -The Bestower Of Unlimited Mercy, The Continously Merciful
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh (May the peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you)
Asmahan Mansour, also known as “Azzy”, 11-year old, is a Canadian Muslim girl who was ejected from a soccer tournament in Laval near Montreal, for refusing to take off her hijab. The story triggered a nationwide and international reaction, some denouncing the referee’s ruling while others claimed the hijab breaks a safety rule determined by the international governing body of soccer FIFA.
The issue is still burning as the Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-CAN) threatened to take the case to human rights court should the FIFA fails to take a clear stance on wearing hijab.
