And before this in his podcast, he can be seen many times praising Islam and Muslims. Here is another video.
"Muslims are the only people who will defend their religion, they refuse to be mocked, they refuse to be insulted and I respect that about them." Andrew Tate said on 1st May 2021 pic.twitter.com/WfvDydktGH— Umme Sarah (@isarah1234) October 24, 2022
Now you will see many people targeting and saying he is doing this for Muslim followership. Now, remember first we can’t judge anyone’s heart. It’s between them and Allah.
Second, you must remember how Hazrat Umer R.A became Muslim. And thank God social media was not present at Prophet P.B.U.H. And you all know he was to hurt Prophet P.B.U.H with his sword, but Allah converted his heart after listening to his sister R.A reading Quran.
And also Allah will forgive all previous sins after someone accepts Islam. And even if you don’t agree with someone pray for those who accept Islam.
“The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: ‘If a person accepts Islam, such that his Islam is good, Allah will decree reward for every good deed that he did before, and every bad deed that he did before will be erased. Then after that will come the reckoning; each good deed will be rewarded ten times up to seven hundred times. And each bad deed will be recorded as it is, unless Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, forgives it.’”[Sunan an-Nasa’i]
Muslim (121) narrated that ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: When Allaah put Islam in my heart, I came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said: “Give me your right hand so that I may swear allegiance to you.” He held out his hand and I withdrew my hand. He said, “What is the matter, O ‘Amr?” I said, “I want to stipulate a condition.” He said, “What do you want to stipulate?” I said, “That I will be forgiven.” He said, “Do you not know that Islam destroys that which came before it?” “Islam destroys that which came before it” means that it erases it and wipes it out.Stated by al-Nawawi in Sharh Muslim.
