. . he played music for them - then he announced his conversion to ISLAM!

A true story of Arch Bishop Martin John Mwaipop and reactions of the church - all because he prayed to Allah, instead of Jesus, peace be upon him!

Two Days Before Christmas - The Arch Bishop - Announced His Islam in CHURCH!

Archbishop Martin John Mwaipopo shocked his congregation two days before Christmas by announcing his conversion from Christianity to Islam. This news led to disbelief and accusations of him being “Crazy”! Then they called the police. Mwaipopo was eventually released from custody by Sheikh Ahmed, the person who initiated him into Islam.

Mwaipopo's background as an educated Lutheran archbishop with BA, Masters, Doctor of Divinity and church administration added to the astonishment of his conversion. Prior to embracing Islam, he held significant positions within the World Council of Churches, associating with notable figures like Barney Pityana and Bishop Desmond Tutu.

Born in Tanzania, Mwaipopo initially had ambitions of joining the police force but yielded to his father's wishes to become a priest. He pursued studies in England and Germany before returning to Tanzania and assuming leadership roles within the church. However, it was during his pursuit of a doctorate that he began questioning the truth behind different religions, ultimately leading him to Islam after reading the Quran.

Facing opposition from his former church, Mwaipopo lost his possessions and even his wife, who left him. He forgave his parents, who did not understand his decision due to their limited biblical knowledge. Mwaipopo's journey eventually led him to meet Sister Gertrude Kibweya, a Catholic nun who embraced Islam and became his wife. He asked her why she wore a cross. She said, “Because Jesus died on a cross.” He the asked, “If your dad is killed by a gun, will you wear a tiny gun on your chest?” Her contemplation led her to Islam and now she is called Zainab.

Life became challenging for Mwaipopo and his wife as he faced imprisonment for preaching against Christianity and experienced loss of their infant triplets in a bombing. Nevertheless, these events only strengthened their resolve and attracted more people to Islam, including his father-in-law. He faced further persecution, leading him to seek exile in Zambia.

Throughout his experiences, Mwaipopo recognized the importance of sharing information about Islam and urged Muslims to unite and defend one another. He admired the efforts of individuals like Ahmed Deedat, emphasizing the need to combat negative perceptions of Islam.

Overall, Mwaipopo's story highlights his journey from a prominent Christian leader to a dedicated Muslim, facing challenges and persecution along the way.

To the Muslims, Al Hajj Abu Bakr Mwaipopo’s message is this:

"There’s war against Islam. Flood the world with information. Do it right now. Muslims feel ashamed to be regarded as fundamentalists. Muslims must stop individual tendencies and unite collectively. Defend each other to you will be safe. Be of courage.” He mentions Ahmed Deedat, “He was not a learned man, but look at the way he spread Islam”.
