Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

Folake Adebola shared the 45-second clip on Twitter Monday of a confrontation with her boss at a Chicken Express restaurant in Fort Worth, Dallas, United States.

In the video, she could be heard remonstrating with her boss, saying: “It’s a part of my religion. I felt like if I work here you all could be able to (accommodate) my religion.”

But Adebola’s unnamed boss answers by telling her the headscarf was “a different thing…that’s a part of your personal life out there.”

He insisted that asking her not to wear her hijab was “nothing to do with religion.”

The clip ends with Adebola failing to reach a resolution with her boss, as she told him that she would continue to wear the head covering.

She later shared another clip where a man could be heard insisting that the hijab was “not part of the uniform.”

She later wrote: “I converted to Islam not too long ago and I started wearing my hijab, I went to work today and was kicked out because my hijab was not part of the ‘dress code’ apparently and I wasn’t allowed to wear it. “Don’t come to the chicken express in Fort Worth!! This is discrimination at its finest ! I will not tolerate this at all.” Chicken Express refused to comment when contacted about the videos. (UK Metro)
