Seattle authorities in Washington have passed a law that will allow Muslims to be excused from work in order for them to celebrate Islamic Eid holidays.
“After lots of difficult task we have managed to convince the local authorities to pass the law.”
Sheikh Ahmed Noor Maalim who is the Imam of Masjid Abubakar Assidiq in Seattle has told VOA Somali version saying that the ruling is a great success for Muslims in Washington.
The law which was approved by both the senate and the lower house is expected to be implemented after the signature of the area governor.
