While many may argue that people should never be expected to act against their religious beliefs as part of their work, or that no person should accept a job that will, in the course of regular duties, contradict his or her beliefs. However, these four brothers have found a way to make the two work in their favour.

Dont get me wrong, i think this is pretty cool, but how funny is it that they have contracts for outerwear and cant wear anything above the knee for modelling, but for the martial arts its short shorts for the win.

I respect them, they stayed true to their principles, and didn't give in or offer concessions for their career

It's worrying that they are fighting at the same time as modelling, because they risk bodily injury which means they might miss out on jobs due to facial cuts and bruising and so forth.

Religion is so strange, especially when it’s 2018 and people still follow these extremist ideals. Weird “not allowed to wear shorts or model”... so they wear shorts while being filmed and all model.

Am I allowed to say they are good looking guys and I don't care what culture or religion they are. Their mum must be well proud of her sons

As long as they make money, sure their religion will accommodate

Amazing how people are commenting on the fact that they can wear shorts to box in but not model. Yet no one is basing them for being devout Muslims.

Strict dress code until it suits them I guess.

Hypocrisy is mandatory and inherently part of a religion... Look at how some people try to justify this contradictory set of"rules", like it is ok for sports since they need it... Yet, look how women must cover their heads while doing the same, either while modeling or doing sports

As I understand, it is the intention and meaning for both cases. Modeling intends to sell the image, the body; on Martial arts, the use of shorts is because the sport requires it. But that's my understand on this case, everything depends on the intention and meaning of the act.
