Aisha Abimbola Died A Christian But Was Buried A Muslim By Family In Canada

aisha abimbola died a christian buried muslim

The words on the street is that late Nollywood actress Aisha Abimbola was deprived of her right after death.

The actress who stated categorically in an interview with Daily Telegraph last year that she converted to Christianity because of personal convictions was buried a Muslim in Toronto on the 17th of May 2018.

Here is what the actress told Lanre Odukoya last year about her conversion to Christianity.

If you weren’t an actor, what would you be doing?

May be I would have been a pastor. I would have also been a good MC, which I am doing with my acting job, or I would have been a cook because I read Hotel Management and Catering. I would have been a hotelier or owned a restaurant. But I will still be acting in those jobs.

You said you would have been a pastor even with your Islamic background?

That is a testimony. My parents were Muslims and even before my dad died, I had been attending church. It was a bit painful at first but he would not stop me. Then when you had some convictions within you, not that anybody told you, nobody would stop you.

And that was why I got into Christianity. It wasn’t what anybody told me to do it; it was what I wanted to do. I wanted to do it a long time ago and I told my dad, so he was aware before his death.

Her family’s rather selfish decision to bury her a Muslim is still the subject of an ongoing debate among her colleagues.

A source at the burial said Aisha Abimbola’s son said “I Wish My Mom Makes Heaven” just as she was about to be placed in her final resting place.

    There is nothing called freedom in Islam. Everything I know about this religion is force.
    She how they forced a dead woman to revert to Islam against her choice. what a joke of a religion

    Let’s be precise here as stated in the article, Her family made the decision and not about Islam is this or that, this act entails so much as i guess her own family never accepted her as a Christian when she was alive. RIP

    Folks, we shouldn’t worry about the body, Jesus knows his followers. No one can trick God! Life is full oddities that are surprising and also can be disturbing, folks, do you know that Christ will claim surprising numbers of souls at the center of Islamic religion? Some non Christians are unconscious about the love they have for Jesus and that is why he(Jesus) emphasized preaching the gospel from point A to …Z

    IF SHE WAS a true Christian while she lived, washed in the blood of the Lamb, then let her family bury her as a Muslim or even a thirty-third-degree illuminati member, it is of no single consequence. Heaven is hers! Conversely, if she was not a Christian, let her family bury her as a bishop or even a Pope, hellfire remains hers.

    As claimed this was an interview she gave few years ago… My question is “what was her condition towards her last moments on earth? Do you know if she later reverted?
    Their is no compulsion in Islam.
    @Darlington Umoh, its obvious you don’t understand Islam and it practice, the ideal of Islam synonymous with ” force” holds no water.

    Islam can have her fleshy body in death But to God be the Glory, Her Soul is at peace with God.

    Dust (the body) returns to dust while the spirit returns to God Almighty and HE alone decides where the spirit shall spend eternity. It does not therefore matter how the body is buried. The mode of burial is not the conscious action of the deceased so she is not facing any judgment on that. May God In HIS Mercy grant her soul peace. Amen

    Sometimes we just have to ignore some irrational comments by posters.

    Wallahi, some Christians make no sense. Imagine accusing Islam over burial chose by family members?.

    If Aisha had left a “Burial Will” indicating to be buried as Christian do you think Islamic community in Canada would have go ahead with “Islamic burial” regardless?.

    What is “force” has to do with this?. Islam itself doesn’t even allow for Islamic burial for non-muslim. We have rules to go by in Islam.

    A Muslim who is known as such by his Muslim neighbors is buried as Muslim. It is MUST.

    A “Muslim” who only knows he’s a Muslim but Muslim neighbors don’t know about him until he dies, Muslims have no obligation to bury him or her according to Islamic rite. This is why it is said that when you embrace Islam you must make it public. That’s why shahada (testimony of Faith) is given publicly.

    I swear many ***** are so ignorant. The worst human is to be ignorant and die ********t. Imagine a fellow said Islam even forced a dead woman even in her death to Islam?. Chai, I wonder what you guys really learn in your ****** studies.

      Please learn from people that knows how to use English words. If you read people’s comment you will have a lot to learn. You need to learn about your religion too. This is because from the look of things, you know nothing about Islam and you want to brew trouble to be recognized because only through this you can realized the real reasons you joined.

    Jesus has said it all. Let the “Dead” bury their dead!
    In christiandom, we don’t pray for the dead we only give them last respect. Let them whatever they like with her body,it doesn’t have anything to do with her soul hence, her making heaven.
