Sinead O’Connor says that she was “born Muslim in the first place”

This is being presented as yet another crazy thing Sinead O’Connor has said, but it really isn’t. It is a supremacist sentiment that is undeniably ugly, but it is standard Islamic doctrine. It is based on a hadith in which Muhammad is depicted as saying: “No babe is born but upon Fitra (as a Muslim). It is his parents who make him a Jew or a Christian or a Polytheist.” (Sahih Muslim 6426)

“Sinead O’Connor insists she was ‘born a muslim’ before swearing on live TV,” by Harry Brent, Irish Post, September 16, 2019:

SINEAD O’CONNOR has claimed that she has always been a muslim and that her famous ‘conversion’ to Islam in 2018 was in fact a ‘reversion’.

When asked about her conversion during an appearance on Good Morning Britain on Monday, Sinead told host Susanna Reid: “In Islam you don’t call it conversion, you call it reversion. The idea is that you were born Muslim in the first place.”

O’Connor said that she went through a stage of studying a number of religions, and admitted that prior to her reversion, she had “a huge amount of prejudice” about the Islamic faith.

“I’ve been a theologian all my life, studying theology, but I never thought that I would join any particular religion,” said the 52-year-old.

“I studied all the different religions, and I left Islam ’till last because I had such a huge amount of prejudice about it actually, but as soon as I read chapter two I was like: ‘Oh my God, I’ve been a Muslim all my life I didn’t even realise it.”

She went on to explain that The Quran (the holy text of the Islamic faith) argues that all previous scripture used in other major religions has been tampered with, and goes on to confirm what the ‘actual’ stories are – something which O’Connor claims she’s “always believed”….
