Michael Jackson, a Muslim?

posted by dali

So you think that Muhammad Ali is the most famous convert to Islam? Well the “fastest-growing religion” may be welcoming a new brother to the fold, and brother, this potential convert would be a thriller.

It seems that Jermaine Jackson, who finished as runner-up on the British “Celebrity Big Brother,” believes that his ultra-famous little brother, Michael Jackson, has given “serious thought” about converting to Islam. That’s right folks. Brother Jermaine, a convert himself, said on Monday that he would like the King of Pop to consider Islam, saying that the religion would be “a great protection for [Michael] from all the things that he’s been attacked with, which are false.”

In an interview with BBC’s Asian Network, Jermaine Jackson said there’s strength and protection in Islam, adding that his faith kept him sane during his confinement in the Celebrity Big Brother house: “If I didn’t have Allah and my prayer rug, I would not have survived and the reason why is because it kept me focused, it kept me calm.”

Brother Michael, who now lives in Bahrain in the Middle East, has thought a lot about Islam during his long stays in the country, Jermaine said. Jermaine, in fact, takes credit for Michael moving to Bahrain, saying he “wanted him to get out of America and just go somewhere it’s peaceful and quite and people pray five times a day, which is beautiful.”

Having visited Western-loving Middle East countries myself (I spent a lovely vacation in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates a few years back), I can see how this part of the story could be true. Countries like Bahrain and the UAE are the near-perfect union of Western modernity and hipness with Muslim faith and morality.

But I’d be really, really surprised if Michael Jackson did indeed convert to Islam. After all, if some of his bizarre behaviors (not to mention his unfortunate trouble with child molestation accusations–though he was acquitted) don’t fly in the U.S., it would be doubly the case in the Muslim world.

But like all major religions, Islam believes in fresh start if a person is really sincere about it. So maybe the King of Pop, if he really wanted it, would have a better life as a Muslim. Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) sure has (in my humble opinion), made a success of it.

    ASA, If Michael converts to Islam that will be by the Will & Guidance of Allah. The world has mocked Michael for decades on his appearance and his confusion as far what race his children are and his alledged child molestation. Only Allah Knows whats true and whats not. Let Him be the judge of that brother. He has been through enough. Michael doesnt have knowledge of himself and kind and he was swallowed up into Hollywood and all of it’s dark sides from the time he was a baby. Michael has also been a victin too. I would love to pray with him and help him develop his spirit. He is good friends with The Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan and The Nation of Islam for a while now and he is receiving the right guidance. We will protect and help our brother. He is in need of spiritual enlightening. Man has free will to change and he can overcome any obstacle in his path. So on that note Michael we love and support you and may Allah bless you and bring you to His path. Allah U Akbar!

    i hope he does become a muslim ,and alot of people who hate islam and muslims is because they think its all about terrorism and so on.
    but its not and actually the prophet (s.a.w)prohibited killing anyone inocent,so think again about that one.i would like everyone to read about islam and understand what is the purpose of there life and why they r living and not to judge islam and muslims about what they hear.and as for micheal jackson i think he has began to understand why he is living and what the purpose of his life is ,so i hope everything works well with him and god bless him.

    If Micheal wants to become an Islam like others have chosen to do that’s his choice that he & his Children have to live with. Just as long as he ain’t harming those children there’s no reason to step in. Just let him live his life as normal as he can.
