Sinéad O'Connor Reveals She's Converted to Islam: 'I Am Proud to Have Become a Muslim'

Sinéad O’Connor has a new religion — and a new name.
Last week, the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer, revealed on Twitter that she had converted to Islam.
“This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim,” O’Connor wrote on Oct. 19, explaining that her new faith “is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey.”


“All scripture leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant,” she added, before revealing she would henceforth be known by a new name. “I will be given (another) new name. It will be Shuhada.'”


In addition to changing her name on her Twitter page, the singer also replaced her profile picture with a photo that reads “Wear a hijab just do it” alongside the Nike swoosh logo. Additionally, her Twitter bio now reads, “PLEASE BE AWARE THAT IF YOU POST RACIST OR ANTI MUSLIM RHETORIC ON THIS PAGE YOU WILL BE BLOCKED.”


One day later, the Irish singer shared that she had been given her first hijab, writing that she wouldn’t be sharing a photo because it’s “intensely personal,” before humorously adding that there was a second reason she wouldn’t be posting a photo.


“I’m an ugly old hag,” she wrote. “But I’m a very, very, very happy old hag.”

Over the next couple of days, the Irish singer went on to share a number of photos of herself wearing a head covering, simply writing that she was “happy.”


In one of the images, she stood in front of a sign that read: “You have taken my body, you have taken my mind, you have taken my children but you will never take my voice.”

Practicing her Arabic skills, she went on to post an emotional video as she sang the Azan, a call to worship, for the first time.
Apologizing for her pronunciation mistakes, she explained that “emotions took me from my page…but they’ll be hundreds of others onstage to come.”

“Once I’ve practiced the Azan a hundred times I promise I’ll sing it much better than the one I’ve posted,” she added on Thursday.

Unapologetically and arrogantly rationalist. Take that, fedora-wearing atheists! ;D

Well, we can only hope this is sincere, and that she finds what she is looking for.

The poor woman has had issues with mental health and addictions.

I am part Irish with some family in Ireland. They are strange people of extremes. Everyone grows up singing and playing musical instruments, and they produce some of the best writers and poets the world has seen, but they are melancholic, restless, and always searching for meaning. They are prone to depression and self-destruction. In the case of Sinead, the candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long--by the time she was a teenager, she was a great talent, but she burned out.

I hope she can find peace in Islam just as Cat Stevens did
