Sonny Bill Williams’ mother and his New Zealand rugby teammate Ofa Tu’ungafasi have both accepted Islam

We just simply can’t get enough of the glad tidings that continue to come out of New Zealand since that tragic Christchurch massacre. Though the Islamophobic incidents sadly continue worldwide, there are plenty of positive news too, this being one of them.

Sonny Bill Williams, a Muslim who carries his Islamic faith on his shoulders, has been blessed with an incredible news – his beloved mother and his All Blacks rugby team Ofa Tu’ungafasi have both said the shahada today and have reverted to Islam. Allahu Akbar. This was confirmed by brother John Fontain, who is on a humantarian mission to New Zealand.

Further support and words from others also came on Twitter

Sonny Bill Williams has been utterly inspiring and heartwarming since the Christchurch incident and undoubtedly his character and actions have been a major factor in making the decision of his mother and teammate that much easier into thinking it’s Islamic teachings that’s made him do what he did.

We ask Allah to keep them and all of us steadfast upon the straight path and continue to bring more people into the fold of Islam.
