May 27, 2012 – Shahadah: Did Funke Akindele Renounce Christ Unknowingly ?

Hello my fellow Nigerians before you criticize me in any way please take some time out to understand the content of my article first.

My best Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele did a Nikkai Muslim rite yesterday to officially become a Muslim right?

Nikkai is an Islamic wedding right to bless the marriage, it also involves signing the marriage contract – to practising muslims, avoiding this right makes the bride a mere concubine which also involves Shahadah taking.

A Little About Shahadah

After having decided to revert to Islam, one must sincerely utter a testimony called Shahadah.

The Shahadah consists of two parts.

PART 1: One is to testify that there is no deity (god) worthy of worship except Allah. The second part is to testify that Muhammad (pbuh) is the final messenger of Allah.

The Shahadah is not necessarily to be said in Arabic, though preferable. One may say the Shahadah in front of two witnesses, but one should not delay the testimony. It is preferred that after taking shahadah, one takes a bath.

The shahadah reads as follows:


The Translation: “I bear witness that there is no deity (none truly to be worshipped) but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”

After taking the shahadah, one must start the way towards God by following the five pillars of Islam.

Contrary to some confused folks out there claiming she is still a Christian, her official conversion to Islam that took place yesterday coupled with name change earlier in this week is an indication that she has renounced Christ.

Funke Akindele renounced Christ when she took the Shahadah taking on the muslim name of Khadijah in the process. (Article by Bolaji Obe).

    Every christian is not a born again believer , it’s only takes the grace of God to be a born again. I believe she was not born again i.e y she trade Jesus christ for gold or silver . It’s sorrowful.

    Its a gr8 disappointmnt, Funke is a disgrace 2 Christ,but i guess she wasnt born again, bcos if she is, she would never have taken such a step, how can one walk with eyes wide open 4rm lights into darkness? i used to be her fan until now, i will never watch any of her movie again.And is ittrue dat her mother is an mfm pastor? and she supports her daughter’s marriage 2 an unbeliever? is it money or wot?

    May God forgive all of u I wonder who made u pple d judge of someone”s case. She has a right to live life just d way she wants it to be. Weda xtian or muslim she has made her choice. If u want something good for her wish her well. whateva she might ve done wrong is btw she and Her God. Of which am sure she ll settle dat scores privately. Plz we r not to judge anybody we r all not pure. All d best dear

    I just don’t get it . Does the parent approve of this so called marriage . She might not really be that attractive but she is ok in her own right. Why would you want to be a second fiddle? Honestly i dont’t just get this. I learnt her parents are christians and ministers of God . Teach your child the way of the Lord and he or she will give you rest……. Funke na wa o anyway i pray your marriage works !!!!!

    GOD said we shoyld not judge anyone, so that we will not be judged. If GOD open our eyes to see why HE allowed the marriage, we will give HIM thanks for HIS ways are not the ways of man. With GOD all things are possible don’t forget that.
