A former Playboy bunny has converted to Islam in a move she describes as a “rebirth.” Felixia Yeap, who was Malaysia’s first ever Playboy bunny, has cast off her fluffy rabbit ears and embraced Islam in a ceremony last Thursday.
UK Mirror Ms Yeap made the announcement in a statement she posted to her 850,000 followers on Facebook. She said: “I hope everyone will pray that I will be steadfast and committed in my new journey. Only Allah can repay all those who prayed for my new life.” The statement gained more than 750,000 likes after it was posted, with Ms Yeap explaining she chose Thursday as it was also her 28th birthday.
Ms Yeap is also a famous model in her home country (not for long).
“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 favorite day.”
