Andrew Tate, ‘influencer’ accused of misogyny, converts to Islam



The Qur’an teaches that men are superior to women and should beat those from whom they “fear disobedience”: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34

Muhammad’s child bride, Aisha, says in a hadith that Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: ‘Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?’” — Sahih Muslim 2127

An another hadith states: “Rifa`a divorced his wife whereupon `AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. `Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah’s Messenger came, Aisha said, ‘I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!’” — Sahih Bukhari 7.77.5825

“Andrew Tate: ‘Misogynist’ influencer ‘converts to Islam’, seen ‘praying in UAE mosque,’” The New Arab, October 24, 2022:

Controversial influencer Andrew Tate, who has been widely condemned as a ‘misogynist’, has converted to Islam according to social media reports.

Controversial influencer Andrew Tate has converted to Islam, according to several claims on social media. 

“This is why I’m Muslim,” a verified account called ‘Andrew Tate’ wrote in a post on the conservative social media site Gettr.

“Any Christian who believes in good and understands the true battle against evil must convert. “So be patient, Indeed the promise of Allah is TRUTH” Quran 30:60.”

The same account later posted a picture of Tate captioned with a quote attributed to Ibn Qayim, an Islamic theologian from the 1300s. 

A video of Tate allegedly praying in a mosque in the UAE has been shared hundreds of times on Facebook and Twitter. 

The video was shared by Tam Khan, a verified Facebook user who indicated in the caption that he filmed the video and appeared to confirm that Tate had taken the shahada – the oath required to accept Islam. 

“Regarding his shahada we agreed it shouldn’t be shown on a podcast or anything because people will claim it’s for clout or fake following. Nobody is perfect, but Alhamdhulillah the guy has a good heart and pure intentions.” wrote Khan. 

The New Arab has reached out to Andrew Tate for comment. 

The popularity of Andrew Tate, a former kickboxer and Big Brother contestant from Luton, UK,  exploded on social media in 2022.

He has since been widely called a misogynist for his comments about women which has seen him banned from most major social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitch.

Before his ban, Tate’s videos had racked up millions of views online.

Several users have claimed his conversion to Islam is simply a publicity stunt and stressed that Tate was not a role model for Muslims….
