Actress and social media influencer, Rosemond Brown aka Akuapem Poloo who describes Islam as beautiful is still in awe by her recent trip to the sacred place Mecca to perform Umrah (lesser Hajj).

Akuapem Poloo still cannot believe she has been able to perform Safah and Marwa and touch the holy Kaaba at Mecca.

In a chat with Graphic Showbiz on Saturday, April 6, Akuapem Poloo who also goes by her Islamic name, Haniya, said: “I was overwhelmed with joy and relief after seeing the holy sacred Kaaba. In fact, I had goosebumps all over me seeing it and doing the Safah and Marwa”.

According to her, she had to force her way to touch the Kaaba because the crowd was massive.

“The crowd alone was something else; it was very massive and I had to force my way to perform the Safah and Marwa and touch the holy Kaaba seven times. I really had to struggle but I’m so happy I was able to do it. It’s worth it. In fact, Islam is so beautiful.

“Islam has really changed my way of life. I don’t take in alcohol anymore and I have become a better woman and mother to my son. I don’t do stuff that will make him feel bad and I get much respect from my social media fans and I’m always at peace,” she added.

Touching on why she described Islam as a beautiful religion, Akuapem Poloo said although there were some initial struggles when she converted to Islam some two years ago, it was the best decision she had ever made.

“It was not easy from the onset with some of the Islamic teachings and practices. For instance, it was difficult for me to get up to pray at 5 am, shifting from my skimpy dress style to long abaya, recitation of some Islamic verses among others.
