JJC Skillz returns to Islam after his marriage to Funke Akindele crashed
Abdulrasheed Bello, alias JJC Skillz, has returned to Islam, his previous religion, following the crash of his marriage to Funke Akindele, a Nollywood actress and politician.
He shared his Instagram post in which he revealed that the singer, who was born in Islam and then left it for his mother’s faith, said that he had lost himself before, but is now found.
I was lost but now I’m found, O Allah, I ask You for pardon and well-being in this life and the next. O Allah, I ask You for pardon and well-being in my religious and worldly affairs, and my family and my wealth. O Allah, veil my weaknesses and set at ease my dismay, and preserve me from the front and from behind and on my right and on my left and from above, and I take refuge with You lest I be swallowed up by the earth.
In another post, he wrote;
Old things shall pass away and new things shall come our way. May Allah (SWT) continually do new things in our lives. I pray Allah (SWT) Lights every path we follow, gives us Wisdom & Guidance in every step we take, blesses every decision we make, and makes us excel in all aspects of life & grants us & our family Al-Jannah Firdausi. Ameen. Jumat Kareem.
Speaking to Muslim News after the Instagram posts were shared, JJC said it was God’s design for him to embrace Islam.
“I was born a Muslim – AbdurRasheed by name. My dad, Bello is a Muslim but my mum is a Christian. Back then I used to go Islamiyah but all I remembered about it was getting beaten. They used to scare us with hellfire so, I never practiced.
“It’s God’s design that I will return to Islam. I thank Allah for sparing my life. I am so happy I found Islam again because it has given me peace. It has given me direction and focus. I was truly lost but now, I am found.”
