Controversial social media influencer Andrew Tate accepts Islam. His video of him praying in a mosque is making the rounds on social media.
According to The Arab, the former kickboxer said: “That’s why I’m Muslim.” “Any Christian who believes in good and understands the true fight against evil must convert. “So be patient, for Allah’s promise is TRUTH.” Quran 30:60.”
Video of Tate praying at a mosque in the United Arab Emirates was posted by athlete Tam Khan, a verified Facebook user, confirming news of his conversion.
“Regarding his shahada, we agreed that it shouldn’t be shown at one podcast or anything because people claim it’s for clout or fake following. Nobody is perfect but Alhamdulillah the guy has a good heart and pure intentions,” Khan wrote.

Muslims please have Sabr. don’t be so hard We all make mistakes and we all get our speech wrong sometimes. I personally know Andrew & Mashallah, his love for Islam is real and genuine. No PR stunts. He’s one of us. I understand the concerns of the sisters too and yes

The kickboxer’s conversion to Islam had received mixed reviews on social media. Some have welcomed the news while others have challenged him.
A user praised the influencer’s decision: “Allah (SWT) has given us as Muslims so many role models. Islam is a religion where you literally don’t have to look anywhere else. What did we do wrong when our young men took people like Andrew Tate as examples about the prophets? Ahul bayt? The fellows? الله المستعان
converting andrew tate to islam and finding a community with muslim men who have the same attitudes towards women is not the least bit surprising

Andrew Tate lost all of his social media platforms. Now he is “converting” to Islam. He knows that Muslims jump with excitement when someone converts. He discovers gullibility and how he can control his next target of humans. This man wants to be treated like royalty. He found his audience.🤡

Some believe this is another tactic to gain attention. “Andrew Tate is actively trying to stir up problems between Islam and Christianity out of ignorance. These religions have found peace with one another. Let’s not back down from a guy who loves hearing himself talk,” said one social media user.
Athlete Tam Khan came to his rescue and said, “Muslims, please have Sabr. don’t be so hard We all make mistakes and we all get our speech wrong sometimes. I know Andrew & Mashallah, his love for Islam is real and genuine. No PR stunts. He’s one of us. I also understand the sister’s concerns and yes.”
