Assalamualaikum, This Is Mikaeel.....

Otherwise known as Michael Jackson, American pop star.

Here's from a foreign online news:

According to The Sun, the 50-year-old singer converted to Islam at a friend’s mansion in Los Angeles.

The report said that Jackson pledged his allegiance to the Holy Quran at a small ceremony. Jackson, wearing a small hat, sat on the floor after an Imam was summoned to officiate at the conversion ceremony.

Jackson decided to adopt Islam while recording a song at the home of his friend, where a Jehovah’s witness was summoned to help him through the ceremony.

The pop star was reportedly convinced by his producer and songwriter friends David Wharnsby and Phillip Bubal to convert to Islam.

A close source revealed, "They began talking to him about their beliefs and how they thought they had become better people after they converted.

Michael soon began warming to the idea. An Imam was summoned from a mosque and Michael went through the Shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of Islamic belief.” Jackson changed his religion days before he was due to appear at the London High Court where he has been sued by an Arab Sheikh.

The singer, who mostly ventures out with a mask, is due to give evidence on Monday in a GBP 4.7 million lawsuit filed by Prince Abdulla Al-Khalif of Bahrain for defaulting on an exclusive recording contract.

Well...his brother, Germaine converted to Islam some time ago.

And Michael has chosen the name of one of God's angels.

I hope the clown does not make a mockery of the religion if it's true he has converted.

hahaha...soon we have a BN guy who will nominate him for Datuk, Dato?

And he was banned from performing at one time....so now if Mikaeel wants to stage a concert here, how will our bigots treat his application? Not that I think he wants to perform here?

Memang cerita ni dah basi tapi masih segar dalam dunia Islam kerana menerima kehadiran seorang saudara baru. Alhamdulillah, bertambah seorang lagi umat Islam di dunia ini. Diharap Mikaeel dapat sesuaikan diri sepenuhnya dan dapat amalkan ajaran Islam sebaik-baiknya. Semoga beliau diberi taufik dan hidayah...Insya Allah...

Allah...

Why is it that all the celebrities find a path a tad too late? It's always after a scandal and such... And to say they don't deserve to be among us pun tak baik. Maybe it's because they like to use the Islamic teachings of 'Forgive one's brother' to their advantage... Whatever, I've got better things to worry about.

rocky bru 239pm..

I was expecting Ali Rustam or Daim to nominate MIkaeeol for a Melaka datoship.

Melaka seems generous with the giving away datoship..AND IMAGINE the tourism impact...wow..Mikaeel come to Melaka to receive datoship.

So far the PKR states are not so generous with dato awards..i think BN states are the experts at churning out titles.

I am serious ..this will be good for tourism.
