Robert Bauer Background Story: Said Shahada when he Married
On 15 September, on an Instagram post, Robert Bauer cleared some questions about him and his conversion to Islam. This is what he wrote:
“Since I’m getting lots of questions, let me tell you a little bit about me and our story:
I’m born in Germany to Christian Kazakhstani parents who moved to Germany in 1994.
I met my wife in Dubai, she is born Muslim and practices it, she is born in Tanzania to a Tanzanian father and a Turkish Iranian mother. She grew up mostly in Dubai and also has her family there.
I said my shahada many years ago when we got married but didn’t really know much about it. Over the years I learnt more and more but now, after coming to Saudi I feel the warmth of Islam and wanted to say my shahada again, read the quran and learn and practice.
I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the love and support I’m receiving and am excited to learn and grow. 🤍
