The singer made the announcement on Twitter as she told fans: “My best friend Elaine just gave me my 1st Hijab and she got chills all over her body when I put it on”
Sinead O’Connor has revealed she’s changed her name after turning her back on Catholicism and converting to Islam.
The Irish singer, who was once ordained a priest by the Irish Orthodox and Apostolic Church, made the announcement on Twitter telling fans she was proud to have become a Muslim.
Sinead, 51, will now be known as Shuhada’ Davitt – with shuhada meaning ‘martyrs’ or ‘witnesses’ in Arabic.
In a post to fans she 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.”
