First “Muslim” Miss USA Rima Fakih converts to Christianity

Rima Fakih was the first “Muslim” to win the title of Miss USA when she was crowned the winner in 2010.

Now, the beauty pageant winner has converted to Christianity and recently also shared a verse from Philippians on Twitter (Philippians 4: 13).


Fakih converted to Christianity last April ’16 in preparation for her marriage in Lebanon next week to Wassim Salibi, a wealthy Christian music producer, “Christian Today” reports.

At the time of winning the Miss USA title, Fakih said, “I’d like to say I’m American first, and I am an Arab-American, I am Lebanese-American, and I am Muslim-American.”


According to the news site “Albawaba”, Fakih, daughter of migrants to USA, only connected to her Muslim origins at College time.

“When I went to the University of Michigan my dad wanted me to learn more about Islam,” she said. “I didn’t know much about Ramadan and other holidays, and my dad wanted me to take that opportunity and learn.”


After winning Miss America, Fakih was involved in some controversy when photos surfaced of her participating in a radio station’s “Stripper 101” contest (click link for more picture…). She was also convicted of drunk driving in 2012.

A story with a happy ending, we can say.
