Irish singer Sinead O’Connor makes first public appearance after converting to Islam

Irish singer Sinead O’Connor makes a comeback following a five-year hiatus from touring, she announced her decision to “revert” to Islam almost a year ago in October. Her Islamic name is Shuhada.

52-year-old wore a bright red abaya and matching hijab when she appeared on The Late Late Show in Dublin on Friday night.

Celebrity singer has described how she felt “at home” after reading the Quran and subsequently embracing the Muslim religion.

“The word ‘revert’ refers to the idea that if you were to study the Quran you would realize that you were a Muslim all your life and you didn’t realize it. That’s what happened to me,” she said on Friday night’s Late Late Show.

“I am 52. I grew up in a very different Ireland to the one that exists now and it was a very oppressed country religiously speaking. And everybody was miserable; nobody was getting any joy in God.”

“I [then] realized oh my God I am home, I have been a Muslim all my life and I didn’t even realize.
