Sinead O'Connor takes her Ultimate Decision to Embrace Islam

Everyday when a non Muslim reverts to Islam, the truth contained in the last Divine religion of Islam solidifies and adds yet another fortunate and blessed Muslim into its fold. And when someone form the show business embraces Islam, it adds yet another feather to the religion of Islam as from the pomp and show of the show business, entering Islam is really a hard and big decision that one makes. There have many many such examples in the past when singers at the top of their popularity graph decided to revert to Islam. I remember when my favourite singer Cat Stevens embraced Islam many years ago.

And today is yet another blessed day. When Irish singer Sinead O'Connor's song "Nothing compares 2 You" became a hit in the 1990s, she or other would have never know that the mere name of the song would one day mean to her: Nothing Compares 2 Islam. 

And today this hidden meaning of the song have surfaced to her surprise, though she many not draw a comparison the way I am describing, but Islam has finally become a way of life for the 51 years old singer.

While announcing her "Ultimate decision" to  renounce Catholicism and embrace Islam, Sinead O'Connor says: "This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey. All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant.” it may be added that O'Connor had changed her legal name to Magda Davitt last year. But now she has announced that henceforth she would be "Shuhada (which means ' martyrs' in Arabic) Davitt."

Connor's twitter message to her fans [3]

O'Connor was ordained a priest by a fringe Catholic group in 1990s and has been a devout Christian, has finally exhibited the truth that Islam is the way to be blessed, both in this world and in the hereafter. [1]

The revelation came twenty-six years after she made headlines around the world when she ripped up a photo of Pope John Paul the Second during an appearance on the Saturday Night Live show in October, 1992. [2]

In a video that has gone viral on the social media, Sinead O'Connor is seen trying the "adhan" - the Muslim call to pray (done five times a day). The video was captioned with: “Here is my 1st attempt at singing the adhan. I got some pronunciation (sic) wrong because emotions took me from my page… but there’ll be hundreds of others on stage to come …,” she wrote. And her effort is simply beautiful:

However, there has been a strong reaction from some of the Christians who have expressed shock over her decision and have rather condemned Islam "for taking advantage of a person with ill health and prevailing upon her." One person remarked: "Jesus Christ what a racket. She's really lost the plot this time." While another comments: "Notice she is wearing combat cammo," as if to show that with Islam comes militancy into her. And still one remarks: "One can see the insanity in her eyes." The last one I want to share here: "Lindsay Lohan and now Sinead O'Connor... oh noes! The west is losing all it's intellectuals to Islam!!!"

Embracing a new religion has never been easy and it takes real strength, conviction and guts to do it and Sinead O'Connor has done it very boldly and we really commend her. May Allah bless her.
