Sinead O'Connor has hit headlines today as she has announced over Twitter that she has changed her name and converted to Islam.
O'Connor's new name is Shuhada Davitt (shuhada means ‘martyrs’ or ‘witnesses’ in Arabic.)
On Twitter, the Irish singer said that:
"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.
"I should have said the Q’raan CONFIRMS previous scriptures Except where it points out illegal alterations in those scriptures.
"Made by those who did not submit themselves as they ought have, to God. Who by the way never gets any royalties when people buy the Bible.
