The actress says converting to Islam has nothing to do with pleasing anyone rather it has made her feel fulfilled.
Adunni Ade says since she converted to Islam it has since brought so many blessings and fulfillment to her.
The actress in a lengthy post via her Instagram page on Sunday, April 26, 2020, said she was born a Muslim but later left to become a Christian.
She said she was raised a Muslim but her father gave them the free will to choose whatever religion they wanted.
Yes, I am a Muslim. Born into a Muslim home and was raised as one. If you care to know, B2 in my WAEC Examination. ? I have a loving Muslim Father who has given his children the free will to choose any religion they like be it Christianity or Islam. My Mom is a Christian, though not a practicing one. My Stepmom is a Christian, My stepsisters are Christians, my Stepbrothers are Muslims,” she wrote.
Have I been to a Church before? Plentyyyyy of them. I once converted, name the Church, MFM, RCCG, CLAM, CAC sure been there but one thing was certain, Islam never left me. My ways of dealing, my upbringing, all I learnt was from a Muslim and was what I truly knew.
I was scared what folks would think about me if I went back to Islam and this went on for years. About 4 years ago, Dec 31st, 2016 I decided I would live my life for ME. Me alone! I came back to Islam. I feel fulfilled. I’m happier. I have received more Blessings this way. My Oldest son practices Islam prays and Fasts as well.
Yes, I wear what I like, be it modest or not. Who are you to decide my inner intentions. You know, it’s easy for you to type on your keypads and make assumptions, but folks who know me will say otherwise.
“Islam I was taught teaches me that we are judged on our intentions by Allah alone. What’s within, not what you see. Not looking for acceptance from anyone. I want people to live their life’s to its full potentials.
Worry less of what the next fellow is doing. Judge less, focus on you and you alone, and watch great things happen to you. As Muslims do know, during the month of Ramadan, the Heavens are opened to accept our supplications and prayers and Hell is Closed and satan is caged down there.
Allah’s Greatness this time last year. I am looking forward to receiving my Blessings this year and every other day afterward. I hope I’ve been able to clarify a few things…. y’all have a lovely night rest.
