Saudi Muslim woman converts to Christianity, marries in Church

Almtery, who calls her self a Saudi feminist and an ex-Muslim, took to Twitter posting photos of her wedding, explaining that she got married in 2019 but didn’t want to announce it on social media until she felt safe to do so because Saudi Arabia forbids religious conversion from Islam and punishes it by death.


Months after posting her photo of New Year’s prayers in a church in Canada announcing her conversion from the Islamic faith to Christianity, Saudi Fayza Almtery has stirred online debate once again after sharing photos from her wedding ceremony held in a Church.

Responding to a few questions from her followers, Fayza explained that her husband isn’t a Saudi and that she’s happily leading the kind of free life she’s always wished to have.

Others accused Almtery of “offending Islam and taking a step backward” by choosing to become a Christian. “You’re going straight to hell” as a Muslim acquaintance congratulated.

Photos of the Church wedding received mixed reactions from social media users; many commentators wished her a happy life and expressed their support for her choice to live in a western country for the freedoms she can enjoy as opposed to her life back in Saudi Arabia.
