Robin Padilla wants to see Aljur Abrenica become a Muslim

Padilla has been a Muslim since the ’90s and netizens believe his advice for Aljur is completely wrong

Robin Padilla is open to the possibility of his son-in-law Aljur Abrenica converting to Islam.

In an interview with Ogie Diaz, Padilla discussed the failing relationship between his daughter Kylie and Aljur.

He said that he wants both to get it together since they have two children.

“May anak sila eh. Ayaw ko namang lumaking mga [walang ama]. Pamilya pa rin ako.

“Kailangan naman ‘yun. Pero sana huwag tumagal. Kung magbabalikan sila, huwag nilang patagalin. Kailangan kaagad.” he said when asked if the two need some space from each other.

Padilla admitted that his relationship advice probably holds zero weight because his marriage with his ex-wife Liezl Sicangco, Kylie’s mother, was also a failure.

“Pagdating sa marriage, ano bang maia-advice ko eh failure din kami ng mama niya. Anong credibility ko?” he said.

However, if he had advice, Padilla would like to see Aljur convert to Islam.

“Sabi ko, ‘Pag-Muslimin mo na lang si Aljur.’ Kasal iyan. Kasi hindi naman ako pumayag noon. ‘Yun ang sabi ko sa kanila, ‘Isa lang ang hiling ko. Puwede bang magpakasal kayo?’ Nagpakasal naman sila.” he said.

“Sabi ko anak mahirap ‘yung ganyang sitwasyon ng puso mo tapos wala kang gagawin. Dapat mag-ensayo ka, ibalik mo ‘yong fighting [spirit] mo kasi iyan ang nakalimutan mo. Kinausap ko iyan isang beses lang bago mag-Father’s Day. Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Lumaban ka ulit.’ Fighter kasi iyan eh, totoong fighter iyan. Balik mo ‘yung dati mo.” he added.

Padilla has been a Muslim since the ’90s, and netizens believe his advice for Aljur is entirely wrong.

Suzette Doctolero, a writer for GMA Network’s Legal Wives, explained that converting to Islam is more than just wanting to enjoy the benefits of polygyny—a practice in the said religion allowing men to have multiple wives.

“Ang isang tao ay nagmu Muslim dahil naniniwala siyang La Ilaha Illallah (Walang Diyos maliban kay Allah).” she wrote on Facebook.


Padilla also said that Kylie and Aljur separated because of a third party, but the latter can’t be blamed since he is, after all, a man.
