Sinead O’Connor has converted to Islam
Sinead O’Connor announced she has converted to Islam and changed her name to the Arabic word for “martyr.”
The “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer, 51, tweeted a picture of herself wearing a hijab.
Mom-of-four O’Connor was ordained a priest by a Catholic sect during the 1990s.
But the Irish singer has changed faiths and her name to Shuhada Davitt.
Sinead, who has struggled with mental health issues, told fans: “This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim.
“This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey.
“All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant.
“I will be given (another) new name. It will be Shuhada.”
Last Friday she posted a video of herself singing an Islamic call to prayer.
Sinead changed her name last year to Magda Davitt, saying in an interview that she wanted to be “free of parental curses.”
In the past, she has said in interviews that her Christian faith has helped her overcome personal turmoil.
But in 2011 she labeled the Vatican a “nest of vipers” over alleged child sex abuse.
Last year, she sent a sexually explicit message to Russell Brand after he offered her mental health support.
Brand sent a supportive message to the singer, saying that following a public breakdown she needed “connection, meaning, purpose, love and a bit of time, really.”
She replied: “Could also do with a jolly good rogering, frankly. The last man who touched my body took out my reproductive system two years ago.
“So if you really wanna be part of my healing journey, c’mon, horse it into me, boss.”
This poor girl has been looking for God for sometime now, and has “tried” many things – but none have worked. Why? Because she continually looks for God within religious institutions, and He won’t be found there.
QUESTION: If her Christian faith was helping her, why is she now changing – because, despite her comment that “all scripture study leads to Islam”, she’s wrong – very, very wrong.
The God who created all things, the God and Father of Yeshua (Jesus), the God and Father of all true Believers is the only true God (YaHWeH). All others are fakes and wanna-be gods, but are mere idols without any power. If, while a Christian, she were in the Scriptures of YaHWeH correctly, she would know better than to speak as she has – it is so very sad to see that she is in fact deceived.
