One of the most important pieces of jewelry a person wears is the wedding band. Great thought and meaning it put into this band of significance, so the significance of the inscriptions on Obama's band is a relevant question.
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.
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.”
If there is no deep connection to Islam, then why would President Obama choose to wear this as his wedding ring? The bonds of marriage are of great import, but so too are the bonds of one's religion, and when the two inner-twine, then one questions whether Obama can truly say he is Christian, as Islam and Christianity are disjointed.
