In a video widely circulated on Social Media, some World Cup fans in Doha are seen trying hijab for the first time in their life.
Muslim volunteers help several female fans to wear hijab and the experience has been praised for bringing different cultures together.
Islam sees hijab as an obligatory code of dress, not a religious symbol displaying one’s affiliations.
While hosting the global football event, Qatar has launched several initiatives to introduce Islam to visitors.
For example, hotels added QR codes in guest-rooms that introduce visitors to Islam and Qatari culture in all languages.
Qatar also placed several murals across the country with hadiths of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to introduce Islam to fans.
Brazilian Family Convert to Islam
In another development, a video also circulated on social media shows a Brazilian family of six taking Shahada during the World Cup ongoing in Doha.
The video, which AboutIsalm has not been able to verify its authenticity, says the event happened in the Katara cultural village in Doha.
The Brazilian family is shown pronouncing the two testimonies, prompted by the Yemeni preacher Hayyan Al-Yafei, in an atmosphere of happiness.
No more details available on the web on the circumstances surrounding the video.
