High School Soccer Player NOT Allowed To Wear Her Hijab During A Game! You Won’t Believe What Her Team Did Next!

| Filed under: ZportzInspirationSad SadSoccerCute KidzSchool

soccer team wears hijabs after ref wont let one girl play with it

THIS is what being on a team is all about!

Samah Aidah is a student at Overland High School in Colorado, and she’s a Muslim who proudly wears her hijab. She also plays soccer like a BOSS.

However, Samah was BANNED from a game because of her religious garb.

So, her team did something AH-Mazing! They ALL wore the hijabs, which caused the refs to let Samah play!

It’s horrible that it took so much effort to let a teen participate the game she loves, but that’s what teammates are for!

Thoughts??? Don't forget that FIFA also revoked a ban on head coverings a month ago, so there's that!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, it works if you try enough!!! Also look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

    They were right banning her.
    Religion should be kept out of schools.

    So, Perez, you're all for religion forcing women to cover their hair because it is (to muslim men) a sexual signal all by itself ?
    You are against women's rights ?
    And don't say it is their choice ! They are forced by their fathers, husbands, brothers, imams. Women did not invent hijabs.

    Right, cause teenagers know all that is right. Islam is oppressive to woman. They are forced to wear that, and some consent to wearing it (they say) but no person truly wants to hide, its all islam forcing them. It's ridiculous. I hate this story and it's wrong approach.

    Re: Suhisfitsudjit – THIS RIGHT HERE!

    Fantastic team spirit. Their parents and school should be very proud of these
    Young ladies.

    None of the players would've been allowed to wear a cross around their neck either. It's not because of religious affiliation, it's a safety issue.

    Re: Suhisfitsudjit – Not all women are forced to cover their hair in muslim countries, yes choose to do it by their free will ….who are you to judge them? -and yes i am a girl who is a muslim, who does not cover her hair and wear as many mini skirts as she wants.

    Re: Suhisfitsudjit – MANY women in Muslim culture wear the hijab by choice. How about you stop putting words in other people's mouths, like you're the spokesperson for muslim women? There are single muslim women, who live alone, who choose to wear this. Who are you to tell them they are wrong, or they shouldn't?

    They were wrong to ban her from wearing it. It is called religious freedom. Her hijab doesn't hurt anyone, and it's her right to wear it! As far as religion not belonging in schools, unless she starts preaching, that isn't encroaching on other student's rights. If someone wants to wear a cross necklace, they should. If you don't believe in what someone else believes in, that's okay. Others shouldn't have to conform to your non-beliefs. You can walk around in a "GOD DOESN'T EXIST" shirt all day long, anywhere, and I won't care. Your shirt is not infringing on my rights, but if I were to demand you take it off, I would infringe on yours.
    Live and let live, and stop letting stupid things offend you…or at least shut up about it and stop acting like other people can't express who they are because YOU deem it's wrong.

    Re: Suhisfitsudjit – You're the one against women's rights, as women have the right to wear hijabs if they so choose. YOU'RE the one trying to dictate what women can and cannot wear.

    I don't find it "cool" at all. muslims are killing Christians all over the world. be a cold day in hell when I would stand with a religion of killers.

    Re: shaygirl – thank you!

  15. hunnybunny says – reply to this


    It depends on the reasoning for not allowing her to wear a hijab. If its in the rules for safety or such reasons then she should have to follow that rule. If it wasn't for safety reasons just that the ref didn't want her to wear it then she should be allowed.

    Re: shaygirl – You're kidding, right? What about the crusades? There are millions of Christians who have killed in the name of God, even recently. The Christian religion has a lot of blood on it's hands, too. I'm Christian, but I'm not ignorant. You're already standing by a religion of killers. EVERY religion has extremists, and Christianity is not excluded. That's what the muslim terrorists are- extremists. They don't represent everyone in that religion.

    "Live and let live, and stop letting stupid things offend you…or at least shut up about it and stop acting like other people can't express who they are because YOU deem it's wrong."

    everybody is entitled to their own opinion. take your own advice.

    Re: shaygirl – Your replies show you to be an empty headed, bigoted idiot. I would be ashamed to show such ignorance if I were you, but then again, I'm sure you use many different identities when commenting on sites such as these. You say they are killing Christians all over the world, what about the people Christians are and have killed? I haven't heard of any killing of Christians here in the USA (part of the world in case you didn't know). Here's a thought - take your medicine before making statements on public forums.

    Here's the thing… It wasn't banned because it was a hijab. It wasn't even banned. It wasn't part of the uniform. We ran in to this problem all the time when I played soccer. Some refs wouldn't even let us wear headbands unless we all had the same ones on. It wasn't anything against the hijab- so quit baiting people.

    SO NUNS ARE OPPRESSED!!! When did a morally attired woman become a negative symbol, or is it just a discriminatory view of others that you simply know nothing about.

  21. Janjoun says – reply to this


    You people are saying that she have to remove what she believe is the right thing just to be I'm the soccer team ??!! Go learn the facts and then come here to judge . Muslims girls DONOT get forced to do anything. They do it because god asked to and we love god .

  22. Zara says – reply to this


    Re: shaygirl – …You do realize that every religion has killers, right? And newsflash: There are plenty of Christians slaughtering innocent children in Muslim countries every day. That doesn't mean I would never stand with a Christian who is a good or innocent person though - I'm not ignorant enough to think that the religion one practices determines his or her character. I stand with humanity.

    Re: Jessicalc – I wish there we more people out there who are as enlightened as you are!

  24. kandycane says – reply to this


    I wonder if Perez would feel the same about Christian clothes. Yeah what I thought

  25. neeni says – reply to this


    Re: Suhisfitsudjit – are you okay? Have you even read the Quran? No you haven't because if you have ever read the Quran you would know that it is a sin to force anything upon another person. The hijab is a choice that every women makes. If you're saying that Muslims are forced to wear hijab then something is wrong with the information you are getting. Nothing is forced upon anyone in the religion of Islam. It's a huge sin that was mentioned in the holy book.

  26. Dan says – reply to this


    No I think what people are saying is how this is ok because its muslim. I actually think its garbage. So if its a "CHOICE" to wear it then fine choose to wear it AFTER the game. The refs should have just disaqualifed the whole damn team then. These acts of heroism are anything but. Its just a bunch of spoiled brats acting like they are on some crusade when all they are is looking foolish. Guaranteed if this was anything to do with Christianity or Catholics wouldnt be reading about it. Pretty sad damn world we live in where the only time anything RELIGIOUS matters is when its anything that is not the 2 C's I mention above. If this was the other way around you trolls would be complaining how religion has NO PLACE in school. If I was there I would argue that and DEMAND she remove that religious garment while playing in SCHOOL functions and SUE the school if she didnt. This is not "nicely done". You can't have it just one way people…

    re: Karen "None of the players would've been allowed to wear a cross around their neck either. It's not because of religious affiliation, it's a safety issue"

    As someone who played soccer through high school and college I can tell you that is not true. Religious medals are 100% acceptable as long as they are taped down. Ref's could tell you to remove any/all other jewlery but if it was a religious medal the most they could do was tell you to make sure it was taped down and secure to ensure it wouldn't cause an injury during the game.

    FIFA determines the rules on the soccer playing field. Outside parties don't. Settled.

    Re: Dan – Dan you're an idiot and clearly don't know what having convictions and values mean! wearing a hijab doesn't involve anyone else BUT the person wearing it! So why the fuck should she take it out in school? You wouldn't ask a jew to take off his kippa? You wouldn't ask a christian to remove his cross? You wouldn't ask a freaking nun to stop being oppressed because she chose to give herself to god? you don't make sens and are full of double standard! What you think is wrong is not necessarily wrong… People like you are what's wrong in this fucking world! LIVE AND LET LIVE.
