Sinead O’Connor shows up on TV wearing rainbow hijab, says she’s always been Muslim but didn’t know it

Singer-songwriter Sinead O’Connor appeared on Monday’s “Good Morning Britain,” where she spoke about her conversion to the Islamic faith.

O’Connor, 52, announced her conversion in 2018, changing her name to Shuhada Davitt. She explained that her decision to convert to the Islamic faith “is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey.”

“All scripture leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant,” she explained at the time.

O’Connor has been open about her struggles with depression and suicide attempts.

The entertainer insisted that she’s “been a Muslim [her] whole life,” but she “just didn’t realize it.”

“As soon as I read chapter 2 of the Quran, I was like, ‘Oh my god I’ve been a Muslim my whole life and didn’t even know it,'” she told co-hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.

“In Islam, you don’t call it conversion. You call it reversion,” she continued. “The idea is you were born Muslim.”
