Michael Jackson is now a Muslim…??

I heard news that the famous Star Michael Jackson has converted to Islam and Building a Mosque in Bahrain. After the conversion of Cat Steven (now Yousuf Islam) he is the second fortunate western singer to recognize the Faith.

P.S. Jackson’s elder brother became a Muslim in Saudi Arabia in 1989.

    Actually this is not true. Only shady media websites reported his conversion to Islam.

    Daily Ummat from Karachi has already refuted this claim in a well researched article. They have presented different views regarding who gained and lost from this claim.

    Let me know the link if they published the article on the web

    It cracks me up every time I read such false rumours. First it was Neil Armstrong who supposedly converted, then Will Smith, and now this.

    What is your source anyways, Mr.Syed Nabeel?

    I have been researching for the past hour on this topic. Though there are some sites which say he has converted but they are few and mostly unreliable blogs. It seems some people might have misinterpreted the involvement of the Nation of Islam (an organization in America)in Michael Jackson’s case as his conversion to the faith. Here is the link:

    Link which says he is building a mosque:


    ( I wonder how though given he is bankrupt and most of his assets have already been claimed by creditors.)

    I get the news from my colleges etc. I also googled it but the results are almost like urs. I was actually not 100% sure about it that’s why I used “?”.

    Here’s another article. (from Jewish Media)

    Thanks Sketcher

    I was actually not 100% sure about it thatís why I used ì?î.

    Yes, I noticed that but you also said “After the conversion of Cat Steven (now Yousuf Islam) he is the second fortunate western singer to recognize the Faith.” – which implied that you thought he HAD converted.

    But if you didn’t indeed mean that ignore my comments on it.

    guys…i did a lil research on this yesterday…..
    apparently he converted in 2003….but made it public now….
    plus there is no credible media to back that up….


    pedophile studies islam and finds in in line with his personal beliefs….???
    he has been through 2 other religins too by the way….

    hehe,no wonder he might claim soon that he has gone thru all religions who follow Abrahamic Faith

    However,hes not happy with jews,calling them leeches
    A/c to http://mjtkop.com/home/modules/news/article.php?storyid=557

    “They suck them like leeches,” the voice says, “They start out the most popular person in the world, make a lot of money, big house, cars and everything, and end up penniless. It’s a conspiracy. The Jews do it on purpose.”

    I wonder which popular person is he referring to

    Michael Jackson still has many millions of dollars in assets. He is not broke. His control of all the original Beatle songs and rights secures his future for many lifetimes to come. The press may report a financial difficulty for one of many different “corporations” that Michael Jackson owns. It has nothing to do with his wealth on the grand scale. Most of Michael Jackson’s family consider themselves Jahovah’s Witnessess. How much of that faith is actually embraced by the Jackson’s is subject to question. While Michael Jackson respects Islam and it’s worthy followers he is not a Muslim. As a jesture of “good will” he might very well finance the construction of a Mosque. He can certainly afford it.

  13. sonia (unregistered) on December 9th, 2005 @ 9:36 pm

    I think its wonderful that he is converting and may allah keep him strong and to help him carry out his duty as a muslim!
    As for his comments on jews, I think that was a load of bollucks………as if !

  14. Haroon J Hanif (unregistered) on December 11th, 2005 @ 5:43 am

    Yes man this is brilliant, Michael Jackson turning into Islam its absolutely wicked. I just wish that he’s converted with his heart and may Allah keep him safe and on the right path.

    Dear all

    Peace be with you

    When you look at the tetragrammaton (YHWH) upside down in the hebrew text why does it resemble the arabic word for god ó ALLAH??????????

    Peace be with you

    When you look at the tetragrammaton (YHWH) upside down in the hebrew text why does it resemble the arabic word for god — ALLAH??????????

    You can find the symbol by searching on google for the words “hebrew tetragrammaton”.

    Hallelulliya THIS MUST BE A MIRACLE.

    Why has the word ALLAH always been used in the arabic bible and not Yahweh/Jehovah???????????????????

    PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PASSAGES FROM THE BIBLE AS IT HAS IMPLICATIONS ON THE WAR AGAINST TERROR/ISLAM and the claim of israel that god gave them the land. If the child is an infant than the judeo/christian version becomes nul and void and we are wasting our time and resources ie we could save trillions of dollars and create a more peaceful world rather than fighting against islam the religion of abraham,moses, jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them all).

    This passage is central to islam/chritianity/judaism.

    Genesis chapter 21 from verses 14 through to 22. Please read this very carefully several times and then tell me the mental picture you get between the mother child interactions what the age of the child is mentioned in these verses. If the mental picture is that of a 17 year old child being carried on the shoulder of his mother, being phsically placed in the bush, crying like a baby, mother having to give him water to drink, than the islamic viewpoint is nul and void.

    Also Genesis 21 verse 1 to 3 why is issac being refered to as abrahams only son? at this stage abraham had two sons Ishmael the first born and Issac the second born.

    I have asked these questions to many learned christians and am very perplexed that nobody can give me a logical answer and it is dismissed as a mystery???

    My extremely large family Look forward to receiving your reply.

    GENESIS 16:16
    And Hagar bore Abram a son; and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishímael. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ishímael to Abram.
    GENESIS 21:5
    Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

    At Genesis 22 abraham had only 2 sons others came later. The Quran mentions that it was ishmael that was sacrificed hence the reference in genesis 22:2 your only son can only mean someone has substituted ishmael names for issac!!

    NB no concept of zero in roman numerals.

    100 – 86 = 14




    GENESIS:21:14 – 21

    So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, along with the child, and sent her away. And she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-sheba. When the water in the skin was gone, she cast the child under one of the bushes. Then she went, and sat down over against him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot; for she said, ìLet me not look upon the death of the child.î And as she sat over against him, the child lifted up his voice and wept. And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, ìWhat troubles you, Hagar? Fear not; for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is. Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him fast with your hand; for I will make him a great nation.î Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the skin with water, and gave the lad a drink. And God was with the lad, and he grew up; he lived in the wilderness, and became an expert with the bow. He lived in the wilderness of Paran; and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt.

    I am amazed that you want to learn more about religions. well it is the instinct of man to learn the truth. I wish that you ask this question at any Islamic Community at ORKUT. This blogg is frequented by people who are only interested in the karachi life but welcome new converts as all Muslims ever had (since the very beginning of Islam) and will continue to do so. let me recommend you the ‘Shia Islam’ at orkut which has around 6000 ??(not sure) members.. and have people who have answered the hardest of questions. there are more communities, make sure to join those with a high number of members. Try to ask a little more straight-forward question and hope you can see the truth

    why are you discussing ’bout the religion of this man. we can all make this world a better place, and you are only looking at religion. it’s just not important, if he is happy with his religion, you are happy with yours and I am happy with mine, who cares!! I wish we could all stop discussing, and change the world. please the only thing we have to fight for is our right!
    don’t look at color, religion or the fact of someone is male or female,. heal this world people!! 0ne man can make a difference but togheter we can make such a bigger difference!!
    start looking at personality, someone who is studying islam is nothing better than someone who is hindu! or a christian or whatever!! we’re just ordinary people, we don’t know wich way to go, go the right way!!
    please! make this world a better place!!
