Irish Singer Who Converted to Islam has Died at Age 56

Singer Sinead O’Connor, who converted to Islam, died at the age of 56.

O’Connor, an Irish singer, was born in Dublin. Her death occurs a year after her son, age 17, died of an apparent suicide.

Her death’s cause was not disclosed, however her family claimed that they were “devastated” and “have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

Global fame

With her song of Prince’s Nothing Compares 2 U, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 charts that year, she became an international sensation.

Accepting Islam

In 2018, O’Connor changed her name to Shuhada Sadaqat after converting to Islam. In October 2018, she stated on Twitter, “This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim,” “Any intelligent theologian’s journey comes to an end here,” All biblical research points towards Islam. It renders all other scriptures unnecessary.

In a 2019 interview, she spoke about how she converted to Islam and claimed to have started reading religious texts from other faiths in an effort to discover the ‘truth’ about God. I never imagined I would join a religion, but because of my strong prejudices against Islam, I saved Islam for last, she added.

But after beginning to read the Quran, specifically chapter 2, she recalled thinking, “Oh my God, I am home.” “I didn’t know it, but I had been a Muslim my entire life.”
