Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri, head imam of Islamic Centre Ireland, posted a video of O'Connor - who changed her name a year ago to Magda Davitt to be "free of parental curses" - saying the Islamic declaration of faith. Her new name: Shuhada' Davitt.

According to several posts to Twitter, the 51-year-old has taken the Muslim name Shuhada' Davitt.

She has said that her decision was "the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian's journey" and uploaded a video of herself singing the adhan, or Islamic call to prayer. All scripture study leads to Islam.

"Once I've practiced the Azan a hundred times I promise I'll sing it much better than the one I've posted", she tweeted on Thursday.

"She got chills all over her body when I put it on", wrote the singer.

"Not gonna post a photo because is intensely personal".

Her conversion to Islam comes two months after Shuhada' asked Pope Francis to present her with an official excommunication certificate, so she could officially leave the Catholic Church. "But I'm a very, very, very happy old hag".
