Latvian weightlifting world champion Rebecca Koha has converted to Islam and donned hijab, saying she has started a new chapter in her life.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

“Today is a special day for me, because I became a Muslim,” Koha wrote on Instagram on Sunday night.

“At 3:48pm I did the Shahada (which is a declaration of faith aka converting) and entered Islam from here I believe that the new and beautiful chapter of my life can begin.”
