SubhanAllah Alhamdulillah Allahu Akbar

••► Professional Basketball player Ibrahim Jaaber returns $300,000 to his team and leaves his league for the sake of Islam.

But the money was no good to him anymore. The team's jerseys featured the logo of a beer company called Kalnapilis: a small red triangle with the brewery's name in script below it. As a devout Muslim, the beer ad offended Jaaber. So did the squad's scantily clad cheerleaders, with their low-cut tops and barely there bottoms— but as Jaaber put it, "To me, they're naked women." He even found the music pumped through the arena to be too profane.

"I understand that maybe I will never earn money from basketball because of this decision," he said at the time, "but I am ready to do such a sacrifice for my beliefs."
