I am surprised no one else caught this – From an “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on Reddit, pop queen Madonna let this interesting tidbit drop:

madonna-quran

This seems to be a natural progression for her. Her early music was heavily influenced by her Catholic upbringing, and in recent years she famously studied Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism, analogous to Islamic Sufism). Her life is indeed a mystery. The photo from her Facebook account above, where she wears a chain-mail niqab, suggests her motives and attitude towards Islam remain… veiled. Maybe we can start calling her the Immaterial Girl?

    That’s good that she is into mystical explorations, and also changing her image…God bless her

    Madonna is a media whore and will do anything to keep her name in front of the public, but she is old now and fading from the picture, this is just another stunt. She is as phony as a $3 bill.

    If Madonna is truly studying the Qur’an she might want to take some time to read the very insightful convcersation on the language of the Qur’an between the Christian Halal Monk and the Muslim scholar professor Abdel Haleem, who made one of the latest and brilliant English translations of the Qur’an.

I honestly don't have much left to say that I have not said already.

Yes, we have threats like ISIS to grapple

It is part of my general observations of the "Meccahattan"-ization of the holiest place in Islam, the way that the Saudi religious authorities are utterly obliterating the historical wea
