Chinese man converts to Islam in Nigeria, gets new Muslim name

There was mild jubilation in the Muslim community in Kano state as the community welcomed a new convert.

A Chinese man simply identified as Mr. Leo converted to Islam from Christianity earlier today.

After the conversion, he was given a Muslim name, Aliyu – to his delight and that of others.

Last year, a Chinese man converted to Islam in order to wed his young Muslim Nigerian lady in Plateau state.

The Chinese man came to Nigeria with a close family member for the wedding, accepted Islam and changed his name to Samir before getting married to his partner.
