French Model Marine El Himer announced on her Instagram that she converted to Islam, publishing a video of her in Kaaba.
Marine stated that she converted to Islam months ago but never made it official until now.
"It was a choice of soul, heart, and reason, a choice that was evident to me and I freely and proudly practice," she wrote.
The model affirmed that there is no shame in converting to another religion of any kind, stressing that it is a fundamental right that everyone should be able to exercise freely.
In another post where she was seen touching Kaaba, Marine said: "There are no words strong enough to express the intensity of happiness and emotions I'm experiencing right now. A spiritual journey that I hope will continue to uplift and guide me Inshallah."
The model added: "I can't thank you enough for your valuable support and kindness. Many thanks to all of you!"
