Barack Obama Has Muslim Profession of Faith Inscribed on Wedding Ring?

Thu, Oct. 11, 2012 Posted: 10:24 AM EDT

President Barack Obama's wedding ring was the subject of conversation recently, after an Arabic and Islamic expert claimed that the gold band was inscribed with the Islamic declaration of faith.

While World Net Daily (WND) initially reported that Obama's ring contains the Islamic and Arabic phrase "There is no God but Allah," further investigated the reports by speaking to a Duke University professor who reportedly preferred to remain anonymous.

While Obama's ring reportedly features part of a shahada, or Muslim profession of faith, the second part of the phrase is not included in the president's wedding band, which would read in its entirety, "There is no god but God and Muhammad is the prophet of God."

However, the Duke professor told that based on the WND's assessment, the Democratic presidential candidate's ring does appear to feature the first part of the shahada.

"I think this is accurate," the unnamed Duke professor reportedly told the publication. "Usually people in the Middle East – they wear such rings just for protection against any evil [spirits], car crashes – to keep them safe from evil."

The single most damaging campaign ever..... A single picture with a translation - bannered on Drudge’s Report.

If this really is true, the American people have been tricked by the most heinous act of all.

“Barack Obama Has Muslim Profession of Faith Inscribed on Wedding Ring?”

No. At what point will we stop giving credence to “articles” with headlines phrased in the form of a question? That’s the biggest tell that what you’re about to read is bullshit.

There are 1000 legitimate reasons to question and despise this administration. No need to make up looney toons nonsense.

Hussein’s handlers read this stuff, too.

Will Hussein change rings?

More likely, he will make some disparaging comment about people caring about his jewelry (or jewellery if preferred).

He likes to make fun of Republicans with self-assessed “witty” remarks.

What a card. /s

It is because of those 1000 legitimate reasons that I can agree with you. IMHO, looney toons or not, "someone" is attempting to make this a major issue - all in the name of deflection.

Actually, I kinda hope it is debunked. I would be even more depressed if it were true (and he gets away with it).

Obama states firmly that he IS a Christian. That is sufficient for the majority of all voters.

"At a prayer breakfast in February, he told his audience about his path to Christianity and acknowledged visiting Christian evangelist Billy Graham on a retreat as a defining moment in his faith.

"I have fallen on my knees with great regularity since that moment – asking God for guidance not just in my personal life and my Christian walk, but in the life of this nation and in the values that hold us together and keep us strong," Obama told his constituents at the breakfast.

Sorry, but the inscription on that ring is the first line of the Shahada in Arabic. The second line (not shown on the ring), in English, reads "and Muhammad is the Prophet of the God" (the literal meaning of "Allah") or in Arabic "wa Muhammad Rasul-llah". The Shahada is significant in that uttering it out loud and with belief is roughly equivalent to being Baptised in Christianity. Islam is informal that way. Divorce (for a man) involves nothing more than saying three times to the wife, spinning 360 degrees to face her in between each utterance, "I divorce you".

I have seen such rings first hand and could have bought one in any gold sooq (bazaar) in the Middle East. At one such visit I instead opted for an 18 carat crucifix with 14 carat chain. If Obama was a Christian he might have bought and be wearing the same. Maybe he thinks of it as a cool souvenir. You may well disagree, but some of us think his wearing even the coolest souvenir for decades on the wedding ring finger implies a level of commitment worth noticing.

That’s not a close-up of the Arabic text - it’s on a different part of the ring. You can see the text vaguely on the last picture of post #1 above.

You can believe that if you'd like. I choose to believe what I see in an actual clear picture of the ugly ring.

If you believe that Zero is a true Christian then Sir, you have been fooled so easily. I can't imagine it's actually happening to a Nam vet. Are you a Democrat also?

"One of the prettiest sounds on earth" is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.
Barack Hussein Obama as quoted by Nicholas D. Kristof in the New York Times - March 6, 2007

"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

This is for you.

• The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.

• His biological father was a Muslim.

• Because his biological father was a Muslim the Islam world thinks he is a Muslim.

• His stepfather was a Muslim.

• As a child Barry was enrolled in school as a Muslim in Jakarta Indonesia. An Indonesian Madrasa.
Obama didn't just study at a Muslim school, he was enrolled in mugaji classes (where devout Muslims learn the Koran in Arabic).

• Barack Hussein Obama’s first and middle names are Arabic Muslim names.
Barack was the name for Mohammad’s horse. Husein, enough said.

• Obama recited the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer, which includes a vow of fidelity to Islam, in flawless Arabic on a radio program. - Nikolos Kristoff, NYTs, 3-06-07 (***this one is a gottcha moment***)

• On that same program he said he thinks the call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on earth.”

• Obama belonged to Rev. Wright’s (a former Muslim) church for twenty years. Many congregants are Muslims.

• Obama’s said that the U.S. is “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”

• Obama holds Muslim celebrations in the WH but canceled the National Day of Prayer.

• President Obama’s religious adviser, Eboo Patel, once deemed the United States “the ideal place for the renewal of Islam.”

• Obama does not give gifts on Christmas.

• Obama doesn’t celebrate his birthday.

• Obama falsely attributes Muslim participation in the founding of America.

• Obama required that the cross be covered when he gave a speech at Notre Dame.

• Christian symbol covered up during Obama’s Georgetown speech

• Obama’s first major speech in office was a “Muslim outreach” speech in Cairo Egypt.

• “The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim,” said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.

• Obama gave strong support to the Cordoba House community center and mosque to be built at the Ground Zero site of Sep. 11, 2001 at a dinner celebrating the day’s end of the first day of Ramadan at the WH.

• Obama tasked NASA with a mission of “Muslim outreach.”

• Obama referred to his faith as “my Muslim faith” gaffe in an interview with George Stephanopolous. • Pushes Islamic freedom of religion but not Jewish or Christian freedoms. Several weeks ago he told Israel NOT to build settlements in East Jerusalem. But OK to build that Mosque at Ground Zero.
