NEW YORK – As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues.

Obama Ring No God But Allah

The Shahada on Obama’s ring is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, expressing the two fundamental beliefs that make a person a Muslim: There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s prophet.

Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992.

Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no God except Allah.”

The Shahada is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, expressing the two fundamental beliefs that make a person a Muslim: There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s prophet.

Sincere recitation of the Shahada is the sole requirement for becoming a Muslim, as it expresses a person’s rejection of all other gods

Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D., examined photographs of Obama’s ring at WND’s request and concluded that the first half of the Shahada is inscribed on it.

“There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached,” Gabriel told WND.

Jerome Corsi’s “Where’s the REAL Birth Certificate?” carefully documents the story the establishment media still refuses to tell

“Dreams from My Real Father” producer Joel Gilbert, an Arabic speaker and an expert on the Middle East, was the first to conclude that Obama’s ring, reportedly from Indonesia, bore an Islamic inscription.

Photographs published last week by the New Yorker from Obama’s time at Occidental College, taken by fellows students, indicate that the ring Obama wore three decades ago is the one he is wearing in the White House.

As WND reported in July, previously published photos have shown Obama wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger continuously from 1981 at Occidental, through graduation at Columbia in 1983, in a visit to Africa in 1988 and during his time at Harvard from 1988 to 1991. But none, until now, have displayed the ring with enough detail to identify it as the one he currently is wearing.

WND reported a satirical edition of the Harvard Law Review published by students in 1990 contains a mock Dewers Scotch profile advertisement poking fun at Obama. Among a list of Obama’s “Latest Accomplishments” is: “Deflecting Persistent Questioning About Ring On Left Hand.”

The comment suggests the ring was a subject of student curiosity at the time and that Obama was not forthcoming with an explanation.

He still has not explained why he wore the band on his wedding-ring finger before he married Michelle.

The Occidental ring

The photographs published last week by New Yorker magazine indicate Obama was wearing the ring at Occidental College.

One photo shows Obama sitting alongside Occidental roommate Hasan Chandoo in 1981, apparently waiting for a meal to be served.

Obama’s extended left hand clearly shows the ring

In the above photo, the ring’s design can be seen, including a series of parallel bars that distinguish its outer circumference.


Gabriel, born to Muslim parents in Upper Egypt, grew up immersed in Islamic culture. He memorized the Quran at age of 12 and graduated in 1990 with a Masters degree from the prestigious Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the preeminent Sunni Muslim institution of learning.

He explained that on Obama’s ring, the declaration “There is no god except Allah” (La Ilaha Illallah) is inscribed in two sections, one above the other. On the upper section, “There is no god” is written in Arabic letters, from right to left: Lam, Alif, Alif, Lam, Ha. On the lower section is “except god,” written in Arabic letters from right to left: Alif, Lam, Alif, Alif, Lam, Lam, Ha.

In the lower section, the word “Allah” is written partially on top of the word “except,” noted Gabriel, the author of “Islam and Terrorism” and “Journey Inside the Mind of an Islamic Terrorist.” It is common in Islamic art and Arabic calligraphy, especially when expressing Quranic messages on jewelry, to artfully place letters on top of each other to fit them into the allotted space.

The exhibit below shows how the Arabic inscription fits over the two parts of the Obama ring.

‘I have known Islam on three continents’

Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, an expert on Islamic history, noted Obama wore the ring during his high-profile speech in Cairo on June 4, 2009, in the first months of his presidency.

“Now we have a new context for what Obama meant when he told the Islamic audience in Cairo that he has ‘known Islam on three continents,” Gilbert said. “He also told the Cairo audience that he considered it part of his responsibility as president of the United States ‘to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.’ All religious Muslims are by definition required to defend Islam.”

The Obama wedding ring

The ring was mentioned in a New York Times article in 2009 recounting the Obamas’ wedding.

Obama wedding ring, Huffington Post, March 18, 2010

In the story, Jodi Kantor described its “intricate gold design,” noting it came from Barack Obama’s boyhood home of Indonesia and was not traditional, like Michelle’s.

Kantor wrote:

Just before the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. pronounced Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson man and wife on the evening of Oct. 3, 1992, he held their wedding rings – signifying their new, enduring bonds – before the guests at Trinity United Church of Christ. Michelle’s was traditional, but Barack’s was an intricate gold design from Indonesia, where he had lived as a boy.

There was no mention in the article that Obama already had been wearing the ring for more than a decade.

The photos of the ring from the 1980s can be compared with more recent photos, such as the ones published by the Huffington Post in 2010 in an article by Anya Strzemien, “Obama’s ‘Intricate’ Indonesian Wedding Band: A CLOSE-UP,” seen here.

Jude 1 (NKJV)
Greeting to the Called
1 Jude, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James,
To those who are called, sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ:
2 Mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.
Contend for the Faith
3 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4 For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Old and New Apostates
5 But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; 7 as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to… Read more »

1 John 2 (NKJV)
1 My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

The Test of Knowing Him
3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
7 Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning. 8 Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining.
9 He… Read more »

Just wondering if there is proof that these pictures are real and not photoshop.
Anyway you look at it, I think the USA is in need of a new President who will make things better for the country.

October 10, 2012 7:43 am

I have said all along , that this half breed bastard , is a Muslim , and the American people voted this bastard in as President of our great country .

October 10, 2012 7:52 am

He has usurped the highest office in the land, and the Congress, Senate, and the media have aided and abetted him. He is truly evil. Now we hear Rev. Wright held this ring and could not, or would not, recognize Arabic writing on it? My pastor would have felt a stirring in his soul, and known there was evil in his presence! My pastor is not special; he is a Man of God! Many of have know the Liar-in-Chief is a Muslim. Why is he lying? What is his plan? We know he has apologized, he is sending money to Muslim countries. We know he is destroying America. Nov. 6 is less than 4 weeks away. Get all your friends out to vote! Volunteer to drive! Go to seniors’ homes and take them, too!

I agree with Jody. it might be too late to register to vote now , but you can contact your relatives, friends and neighbors who are registered and plead with them to vote. For those we know who might not be able to get out, it is not too late to apply obtain an absentee ballot. Just think what help it would be if each one could bring in just one or two extra votes.
I was at a parade in my town two weeks ago and as usual the politicians passed by, handing out their fliers . One thing that struck my heart was the fact that hardly anyone responded to either group, Republican or Democrat. I think that most people do not realize just how different and critical this election really is. Obama did keep his campaign promise from last time in that “change” did come and now he wants to push it “forward”. If he succeeds in winning, there will be no way to repair the damage that will be done.
I truly believe that we are hastening to the beginning of the culmination of biblical prophecy, but even if there are many years yet to go,… Read more »

Romney would not be any better, only worse because he will carry it onward. There is not turning back from what this country has done. It has gotten into bed with the Arabs before President Obama became President from the 2 President Bush era and it will not change. These men make it seem that they don’t like each other, but in reality they are of the same brotherhood. They are ALL friends with one another and have been for years. You truly think that we as the people vote in the Presidents? No we do not, the rulers already know who they want in and that is who it will be. So, just to let you all know. Obama is not going anywhere. It has already been decided by this rulers of this world that he would have at least 8 years as President…. Romney is just who they chose to put before our eyes so we would just have someone else think we could choose.
This is why the word tells us to leave the world alone and TRUST God; and yet some still choose to believe that they have a voice in a vote which was lost… Read more »

Let’s say he is or was a Muslim. Since when is it wrong for a Muslim to be President?

August 15, 2013 4:40 pm

Scott, Watch the movie “2016”. Enough said.

August 15, 2013 5:50 pm

Scot you must be drinking the stuff. Look at the Islamist Countries, they have invaded here and are as we speak changing law.

October 25, 2013 10:53 pm

Nothing wrong with a Muslim being President. Something wrong with a Muslim POSING as a Christian. We do not need him to claim if he is or isn’t a Christian for us to know. Look for the fruit. If it is love, joy, peace etc – then if there are oranges on a tree labeled Orange tree, it is authentic. If an apple tree claims to be an orange tree but apples hang from it’s branches, who cares how loudly it claims to be an orange tree. Look for the fruit. Remember we were WARNED of wolf in sheep’s clothing. Look for the fruit.

October 25, 2013 10:55 pm

Hmm beg to differ, NO Muslim President in my Country only a hidden one as now

October 25, 2013 10:56 pm

get outa dodge what a stupid statement

October 10, 2012 10:00 pm

Not very smart are you Scott?
He is also a devout Socialist and there is nothing that says a Socialist cannot be president, but what bone heads like you overlook is the reason he feels compelled to flatly deny what he is.
Let me spell it out for you. 90% of the voters would reject him if he and the Liberal press were honest about his beliefs and intentions for America’s future!
