Social media users circulated pictures of the Dutch boxer wearing the hijab inside the mosque in which she was present, in order to teach her the two certificates and convert to Islam.
Tunisian boxing champion Hadi Sulaimani interacted with Ruby declaring her Islam, commenting in a post on his Facebook page: "The former Dutch boxing woman, Ruby, converted to Islam yesterday in a mosque in the Netherlands. God is Great. God guides whomever He wills, may God protect her and accept her."
