President Obama is Married to Allah Because the Ring he Wears on his Wedding Finger is Inscribed with the First Pillar of Islam- Unproven!


Summary of eRumor:


This is a forwarded email with photos of the gold ring of President Obama, which he has worn on his left ring finger since his college days.  The email says that the ring has the Arabic words for “There is no God except Allah” inscribed on it and because of this the President is married to Allah.


The Truth:

We have not found any evidence that the President is married to Allah and last we checked he was still residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with his wife, Michelle, and two daughters.  The President and First Lady celebrated their twentieth anniversary on October 3, 2012.

This is just the latest in conspiracy theories that people have released into the Internet about the President stemming from an October 10, 2012 article by Jerome Corsi at World Net Daily about the gold ring of Barack Obama. The article said that Arabic-language and Islamic experts examined photos of the President’s ring and found “the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: ‘There is no god except Allah.’” Click for article.

Corsi has built a reputation for writing about conspiracy theories and sparking controversies about politicians.

The President’s gold ring was designed and made in Indonesia according to an  October 26, 2009 article in the New York Times.

Regardless of what is inscribed on his ring, President Obama has on a number of occasions stated that he is a Christian.  When he visited Cairo in 2009 he said, “Part of this conviction is rooted in my own experience. I am a Christian, but my father came from a Kenyan family that includes generations of Muslims. As a boy, I spent several years in Indonesia and heard the call of the azaan at the break of dawn and the fall of dusk. As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith.”   Click for speech.

For a Muslim to say such a statement would be a violation of the Islamic law of blasphemy.  This could result in prosecution of a crime, where in some Muslim countries is punishable by death.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

Many people have asked “Why did Obama wear a wedding ring for 10 years, before he was actually married to Michelle? “

this is apparently the answer: Obama is married to Allah.

High resolution digital photography has now shown us that the ring he wore on his left hand at age 20 and to this day, is a Muslim ring that many Muslims wear that has the Arabic words inscribed on it: ” There is no God except Allah”.

Today, this same ring serves as his wedding ring to Michelle. Obama is still married to Allah.

As we always suspected and Obama denied, Obama is a Muslim. His pastor of 20 years, Jeremiah Wright, says he is no Christian and Reverend Wright should know.Half white, half black, half American, half foreigner, 100% Muslim. You have got to respect a good con man for being good at what he does.

NEW YORK – As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues.

Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992.

Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no God except Allah.”
