Liam Neeson is (not) converting to Islam

posted by Aziz Poonawalla

Yes, it’s true that famed Irish (and Catholic) actor Liam Neeson said the following while filming a movie in Istanbul:

The Call to Prayer happens five times a day and for the first week it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing… There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim.

However, it’s really unlikely he will follow through. Though he does look awesome in a beard. Also, ASLAN. ’nuff said.

If we are looking for cryptomuslims, however, look no further than Captain Jack Sparrow:

    Come on, bro, we don’t know the details of Liam Neeson’s spiritual journey. We can’t conclude that he’s “not” going to become Muslim, or that it’s “unlikely.” There’s no basis for it in his comment. He said the beautiful mosques and azan makes him think about becoming Muslim, so he might or might not embrace Islam. No one fully knows except for him and Allah. Why not just leave it at that? :)

    Liam Neeson should NOT convert to Islam. Liam Neeson should become a Hindu. Liam Neeson is uncircumcised. Zakk Wylde should convert to Islam. Zakk Wylde was raised Catholic but he should convert to Islam. Besides he has a circumcised you know what.

    Why would anyone think Jack Sparrow, a vicious pirate and enslaver was a role model?

    You would need a criminal mind to admire a pirate.

    @RIA you should actually THINK before posting something stupid like this! Saying that Liam Neeson should NOT convert to Islam, means that you want him in hellfire. Is THAT what you are saying????? PLEASE, use your brain, if there is something like it.

    Of course Captain Jack was a Muslim. That would explain his love for rum! Have you seen the Saudi-Bahraini causeway on a Friday? Cheers!
