In comments translated by the Malaysia Star, the 28-year-old added: “I hope everyone will pray that I will be steadfast and committed in my new journey.

Yeap’s modelling career took off two years ago after a stint at the Playboy Club Sands in Macau. She had previously worked as a kindergarten teacher.

The Malaysia Chronicle writes Yeap’s conversion came after a seven-month-long quest to learn about Islam, during which time she began wearing the hijab.

Meanwhile, in her blog posting titled “Hari ini saya akan pulang” (Today, I am going home), Yeap expressed her sentiments about life and her journey before discovering Islam.

“I went to Catholic church every Sunday evening for 2 years. I’ve tried to understand Christianity. I’ve tried to find meaning in worshipping Kuan Yin and others.

“I also tried to adopt Buddhist practices.

“But my heart never felt close to God. My heart never felt touched.

“Today is a historic date for me. It’s like a rebirth.

“Incidentally, this year, my birthday falls on the 5th of Ramadan.

“I’m more excited to know that this date falls on a Thursday, the Prophet Muhammad’s favourite day,” she wrote.

      1. Hi Ankit – There is only one way to find out for sure – Study Quran and Hadith with an open mind, without prejudice and without getting influenced by geopolitics. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have to the best of my ability.
