Sinead O’Connor Has Converted To Islam And Changed Her Name To Shuhada Davitt


It’s no secret that Sinead O’Connor has had a pretty hard time of it over the past few years having posted increasingly worrying and upsetting videos on the internet, but it looks like she might be on her way to finding some kind of peace with the announcement that she’s converted to Islam and changed her name to Shuhada Davitt.

The news came last night via her Twitter account, where she posted the following tweets:

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.

Yeah maybe she hasn’t sorted herself out entirely because some of those tweets are a bit all over the place aren’t they? You also might have noticed that her Twitter handle is Magda Davitt – that’s because she changed her name to Magda last year when she converted to Catholicism after previously being ordained a priest by the Irish Orthodox and Apostolic Church in the 1990s.

So I suppose it’s safe to say that religion has been a wild ride for her but it seems like she’s really happy now so good for her. Long may it continue.
