Famous Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O’Connor has shocked the world as she revealed her new religion and new name.
Yes! The “Nothing Compares 2 U” hitmaker has announced that she has converted to Islam and changed her name to Shuhada which means “martyr” in Arabic.
The Irish rockstar, who was originally catholic, took to Twitter to share a photo of herself in hijab and tweeted “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,” said the 51-year-old who previously struggled with her mental health.
She also shared a video of her singing the Muslim call to prayer, Azan, but apologises for getting the words wrong. But she promised to practice more and will post a better version of the one she posted.
