Sinead O’Connor has converted to Islam from Catholicism and changed her name to Shuhada which means “martyrs” in Arabic.
The Irish rockstar, who was ordained a priest by a fringe Catholic group in the 1990s, announced the news on Twitter.
Sharing a picture of herself wearing a hijab, the mother-of-four, who has struggled with her mental health, wrote:
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 O’Connor shared a video of herself singing the Islamic call to prayer called the Adhan.
