O’Connor revealed her best friend in Dublin gave her her first Hijab.
My best friend, Elaine just gave me my 1st Hijab and she got chills all over her body when I put it on. Not gonna post a photo because is intensely personal. And I’m an ugly old hag. But I’m a very, very, very happy old hag.
Sinead O’Connor has also revealed she’s taken her new name “Shuhada’ Davitt” after renouncing Catholicism and converting to Islam. Sinead O’Connor, 51, will now be known as Shuhada’ Davitt -shuhada meaning ‘martyrs’ or ‘witnesses’ in Arabic.
O’Connor, in a message to fans on Twitter said she had ditched Catholic Church for good. who last year changed her legal name to Magda Davitt.
The Irish singer, who was once officially appointed priest by the Irish Orthodox and Apostolic Church in the late 1990s , made the announcement on Twitter telling fans she was proud to have become a Muslim
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’
In the past Shuhada’ Davitt has had a complicated relationship with Catholic Church. To protest child sex abuse she tore up a photo of the Pope on a live TV show. The Church was also shocked when she was officially appointed by an independent bishop, as the Church does not allow women priests.
