Its official: Michael Jackson has 'converted to Islam'

MICHAEL Jackson has converted to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel, according to reports.

The singer wore traditional Islamic dress as he pledged his allegiance to the Koran at a friend’s home in Los Angeles, The Sun reports.

Jackson, who was raised a Jehovah’s Witness, reportedly decided to convert after discussing religion with a music producer and songwriter on his new album – both of whom were converts to Islam.

The Sun reported singer Yousef Islam – formerly knowns as Cat Stevens – turned up to help Jackson celebrate.

Jackson is due to give evidence in court next week after being sued by Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa, second son of the King of Bahrain.

Sheikh Abdulla, who is seeking $US7 million ($10.7 million), claims he helped support the cash-strapped Jackson in the aftermath of his child molestation trial.

Sheikh Abdulla claims Jackson promised to pay back the money, while Jackson says he thought it was a gift.

Jackson is expected to give evidence to a London court via video link from LA.

Lawyer: Michael Jackson to testify in his defense in lawsuit filed by prince of Bahrain

Updated Thursday, November 20th 2008, 4:07 PM

LONDON – It should be a thriller of a day in court.

Michael Jackson will fly from Los Angeles this weekend to take the stand on Monday in a breach-of-contract case in High Court here.

The singer – who wanted to appear via video link because of an unspecified illness – has been medically cleared to travel, his lawyer, Robert Englehart, said Thursday.


Jackson is fighting a $7 million lawsuit filed by Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al-Khalifa, an amateur songwriter who says the singer reneged on a deal to produce an album, an autobiography and a musical for their company, 2 Seas Records.

The sheikh, the son of the king of Bahrain, befriended Jackson in 2004 when the singer was facing child molestation charges. Jackson lived in Bahrain after his acquittal the following year.

Testifying Thursday, Sheikh Abdulla, 33, praised Jackson as “an individual who is very switched-on. He is a fantastic intellectual.” Asked if there was anything “unusual” about Jackson, he said, “No.”

In testimony and legal papers, he itemized his lavish spending on Jackson and his entourage, including:

  • $157,000 for a stay at the Hotel de Crillon in Paris, and $122,000 at the Westin Excelsior in Rome.
  • $1.2 million for a donation in Jackson’s name for the Rev. Jesse Jackson‘s rally marking the 40th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act.
  • $8,720 for after-hours rental of the Wild Wadi Water Park in Dubai for Jacko and his kids.
  • $250,000 for “cash so MJ could entertain his friends at Christmas.”

The sheikh said he had to liquidate investments and sell a yacht to generate the cash to support Jackson.

He expected to get the money back in profits from their ventures.

“I would never pay anybody millions of dollars for nothing in return,” the sheikh said.

Englehart suggested that everything given to Jackson was a gift, and that Jackson’s contract with 2 Seas is not binding because the projects never got off the ground.

The sheikh said he was devastated when Jackson left Bahrain and stopped taking his calls. He sent a text message to Grace Rwaramba, Jackson’s nanny, saying: “Is it really true my brother doesn’t want to do the recording with me?”

After his departure, Jackson left behind most of his possessions the sheikh had bought for him, including a Rolls-Royce, a Bentley and a $165,000 gold-and-diamond statue.

    Osama Bin Laden Appalled Over Michael Jackson Member Of Islam
    1/21/2004 – Marni Malarkey

    Al Jazeera television has released another Osama Bin Laden video, this one clear proof the Al Qaeda leader is alive, as it deals in a direct way with current headlines.
    In the approximately 12 minute video, Bin Laden expresses consternation that Michael Jackson may have joined the Nation of Islam, on the grounds that “someone like him could easily make Muslims look weird, threatening, crazy and dangerous. We don’t need guys like that.”
    Jackson, charged with several counts of child molestation, has, according to media reports, recently joined the Nation of Islam and even hired members of the group to act as his bodyguards.
    Bin Laden called Jackson’s membership in the group “dangerous for Islam, dangerous for the world and dangerous for all the kids over here on the Afghanistani/Pakistani border.” After adding the requisite “Death to America” segment to the video, Bin Laden again stressed that welcoming Jackson “into the fold could really do damage to Islam’s PR. I mean, that guy’s just scary, you know? I would not let even one of my 45 children near him. What are the average Mr.and Mrs.USA going to think of Muslims now? Before they probably just thought of us as regular folk, you know, like on an episode of ‘Leave it to Beaver,’ only maybe a little bit swarthier. But now, you know, if that whacko Jacko guy joins they’re going to think we’re unhinged and they’re going to be really, really terrified of us. Thanks a lot, Jacko!”

  3. Looks as if they’ll accept just anybody into that ideology of evil. Con . . . -ah-Re-version is free and easy: only a few magic words, and you’re in!

    Paying the piper comes later. But, as has been pointed out in the foregoing Comments, there is no prohibition against child-sodomy in that “perfect’religion'” of the world’s first and only “perfect” man–its originator, so that sad creature that has erased its race and sex fits right in.

    Unortunately, it (the noseless creature) will have to be let in here again, once it appears to have crossed the sexual divide and be under the shadow of Islamic punishment for not wearing the hijab (covering its hair).

  4. When you go to You-Tube and search under Islam you can hear Michael singing a song
    (prayer?) of the Islam religion.
    I don’t think you would be singing a song like that if you had not converted.
    Weird Jackon family.

  5. Angela, can you read?

    Its not us claiming that he did, its all over the news! His mate Cat Stevens aka Yussuf Islam was there to make sure he gets it right. What’s your problem? Reality resistent?

  6. Angela i saw your comment on WZ,It’s hard to beleive for you i think,not at all for the rest of us……For me it look a natural evolution,soon we will see him with a big Beard like the Prophet of Doom(isslam) !

  7. Hello everyone,
    Its a shame that we intelligent humans can go so low in manners and attitude. Please give yourself a break and think about what you wrote. Now compare how Muslim Sheikhs address your insults. How do they respond? Do they use all the filthy words and phrases you guys aren’t ashamed to use wherever you like? Muslims are fighting against invaders in their own land. They didn’t cross the waters to fight you. You might say “What about 9-11”. Please do a little research about 9-11 without biasing, and you may find the truth. And what was happening prior to 9-11? You guys installed the killing machine in Palestine. You guys dare talk about the ruthless crimes committed by Israel. In fact you support them. Not only that, you guys invaded many Muslim lands.. How about the massacre in Baghdad and the burning of years of knowledge. What about the massacre in Libya? Please read history without wasting your time on movies and night clubs.

    We don’t spread hatred.. It is you who spread hatred, and thus masking your heart and brains with filth, eventually making yourself insane with stress and madness.

    Now please listen.
    Whether you like it or not Islam will prevail and falsehood shall perish.

    Islam makes use of the sword only to restore justice..

    Thanks from Maldives.

  8. * Thanks from Maldives.

    This would be that Maldives where “Maldives is a Sunni Islamic country by law. Every citizen
    of Maldives is Islamic. Islamic law, called Shari’ah, is the law of the land. The overt practice
    of other religions is forbidden.”

    That Maldives? (

    * Whether you like it or not Islam will prevail and falsehood shall perish.

    What, that islam with the satanic sockpuppet god “allah” and his false prophet “Mohammed”? That islam?

    Better read up on Ezekiel 38 and 39 to get a clue as to how God (Father, Son, and
    Holy Spirit) will deal with largely islamic nations that seek to harm Israel, the apple
    of God’s eye.

  9. * Shaamil, you need to get out more!

    As long as it’s not to set up a clone of the sinking Maldives in Oz (as “allah” lets the
    original sink beneath the waves) – complete with sharia “law” and hate of infidels.

    Are you a good swimmer, Shaamil? Does “allah” provide floaties?

  10. “Now please listen.
    Whether you like it or not Islam will prevail and falsehood shall perish.

    Islam makes use of the sword only to restore justice..”

    Bull tish!
    I can hardly wait/sarc off.
    What can you offer us?Why do you go to infidel lands?

    Feel free to accept Jacko. He’s a nut case. Perfect for Islamofacists.

  11. Islam will prevail. Let them preach that long and often enough, right now they believe it, when the rest of the world begins to see that it might just do that, they will react in such a way that will makes the holocaust and crusades look like a family tiff.

  12. Shaamil, you should read history too.
    You are following a Profeet of hate, murder and immoral behavior.
    But like many brainwashed people you can’t think for yourself.
    Everything is pumped into you by your Imams of which most of them preach hate too.
    These Religous wars have been fought before and don’t solve a thing.
    But it is Islam who is the agressor again.
    We don’t tell you to go to another religion.
    Here in the West we have a choice and are not presucuted for our religous believes or being a non-believer.
    But in Islam countries people have NO FREE CHOICE.
    They are telling you what to believe and you don’t have a choice.
    We don’t want a Sharia Law with their barbaric actions, but apparently that’s what you prefere. I pity you.

  13. Who gives a Shit!!!! Muslim is excatly the type of “religion” Jackson needs, False, So all of his commitments can be false also.

  14. Hey everyone this is the truth ISLAM is the religion since time began and will be till it ends. If you think this is not the truth than get a book similar to the Quran. Even if all of you get togther you will not be able to do it and you will never be able to do it. You people who are making fun of ISLAm why don’t you dare to except this challenge. We Muslims respect your religion but we don’t believe it. God is one he has no partners, There is no one like him. Jesus christ is God’s Messanger. I pray to god that you guys see the Truth Insha Allah. All of you have a good life.

  15. The guys crticizing Islam and MJs’ conversion don’t realize that this icon of music was a Christian when he achieved the HIs and LOWs of his career and personal life. Can we blame Christianity for that??? Now way. Then why are you degrading Islam? If MJ has truly accepted the religion of Islam, then God willing, he will be guided on the straight path and show the world how this great religion transforms men. Whosoever talks ill of Muhammad should read the Quran and then judge him and Islam. Please show some sincerity. If you still want to behave as ignorant then God willing you will see in the hereafter. May God of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad show us the right path, Ameen.

  16. Funny this morning,it’s the meeting of the Insane who wants control the world..Ha,Ha,Haaaaa !I don’t want elaborated but those ugly Clowns are the perfect representation,illustration what’s is Wrong with the workshipper of izzlam,we can’t exchanged with these peoples,it’s impossible,we are not on the same planet they are living in a other times …As i say often to my friends at the end of a conversation about Shitty izzlam…These guys don’t understand the world who surround them and specialy the Western World when they are living among us here in the West,Britain,France or America,they see nothing,they are totaly Blind,the cells of the Brain are Dead.They are not evolutive person,only regressive,they have never evoluate in all theirs history,it’s Deadlock…..

  17. 1.Moslems are the world’s fastest-growing group…” USA TODAY
    2.”Islam is the fastest growing religion in North America.” TIMES MAGAZINE
    3.Islam is the fastest-growing religion in America, a guide and pillar of stability for many of our people…” HILLARY RODMAN CLINTON, Los Angeles Times May 31, 1996, p.3

    Accept it or deny it Islam is the world’s fastest growing religion Alhamdulillah….Is Islam unique or its just like any other religion:-
    1.Christianity itself is divided into 700 denominations(n still growing) and the whole idea of man as a God is completely unacceptable to people who had atleast read the old testament (numbers 23:19).
    2.Judaism is limited to their own people converts r accepted but they still r regarded inferior to jews by birth.the jews had made God their monopoly by labelling him a god of israel and it contains outdated laws n injunctions which cannot be applied today.
    3.Buddhism is religion lacking a God in it.
    4.Hinduism like Judaism doznt accepts converts and asks u 2 worship just anything(literally).

    Only Islam is a perfect way of life which offers…it covers every aspect of our life from cradle to grave what must be done and how it must be done in a very systematic manner which is commanded by God himself and which is also considered as worship. prophet mohammed pbuh is a perfect role model for everybody who himself practiced and showed how evrythings must be done from tying shoelaces to fighting for justice… asks u 2 luv, forgive ,unite and be offers a practical solution to every problems in the society etc racism,war,rape,cheating etc etc. This prophet dint came for arabs but he was sent as a mercy to all creatures as it is mentioned in the legendary sermon of the prophet where he said
    “O’ Ye people! Allah says, O’ people We created you from one male and one female and made you into tribes and nations, so as to be known to one another. Verily in the sight of Allah, the most honoured amongst you is the one who is most God-fearing. There is no superiority for an Arab over a non-Arab and for a non-Arab over an Arab, nor for the white over the black nor for the black over the white except in God-conciousness”.

    So i invite all of you non-muslims brothers and sisters to accept Islam.

    “There is no God except ALLAH and Mohammed is HIS Prophet”

    Quran (17:81): ‘Truth has arrived, and falsehood perished; for falsehood is [by its nature] bound to perish.
    John 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free

  18. If Islam is so marvellous, why do Muslims have to keep “inviting” us to join it, backed up by threats? If it’s that great, let us find out for ourselves and then we can choose to join it.

    If Islam is so marvellous, why is it necessary to have a rule that apostates must be killed, if not to force them to stay? Why on earth would they want to leave such a wonderful religion, if it was so wonderful.

    All the apostates I’ve talked to attest to the horrendous nature of Islam.

  19. Abdullah

    “Islam covers every aspect of our life from cradle to grave what must be done and how it must be done in a very systematic manner ”

    Thanks, but I know how to wipe my own bottom. And I can tie my shoelaces.
    (by the way, did they have shoelaces in Mo’s time?)

    Yes, it offers a practical solution to problems such as racism,war,rape,cheating by advocating them all for use against kafirs.

    Sister U cannot blame the whole muslim community for the acts of few people there black sheeps in every community.Even Hitler was a devout catholic christian who had killed millions and evrybody knows dat christians were responsible for WW1 and WW2 but nobody dares to says that chrsitianity is an evil religion(even though it is not) but why the same propaganda is done against muslims.

    Sister said :If Islam is so marvellous, why is it necessary to have a rule that apostates must be killed, if not to force them to stay? Why on earth would they want to leave such a wonderful religion, if it was so wonderful.

    the Concept of Apostatsy is found only in abrahamic faith i.e., Christianity Judaism n Islam
    .The Bible itself says that apostates must be killed in

    Deuteronomy 13:6-10:
    If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which [is] as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; [Namely], of the gods of the people which [are] round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the [one] end of the earth even unto the [other] end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.[

    On the Other hand in Islam the killing of apostates is a very controversial matter.Some sects say that they must be killed after they had been alloted time to research and some say they should be exiled or imprisoned. The Quran directly nowehere says that apostates must be killed
    Quran 2:256 Let there be no compulsion in the religion:

    unlike the bible which says that u shud kill the apostates even if he/she is your brother ,sister,mother or father.

    and in the same way Christianity also has the concept of apostasy as jesus himself confirmed the infallibilty and obey the commandments of Torah when he said
    matthew 5:17 Think not that I came to destroy the law(Torah) or the prophets: I came not to destroy, but to observe

    Luke 18:18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 19And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God. 20Thou knowest the commandments(of the torah of moses), Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.

    Thus in the above verses Jesus not confirmed the authencity of the Torah of Moses but himself practicied it and taught others to practice so if he was observing these laws it is quite obvious the christians should obey the laws concerning apostast in deut 13:6-10Quite interestingly Jesus who was suppose to end the laws himself commanding obeying the laws for attaining salvation

  22. Hello everybody who has been posting here,

    I came on this site cos i just heard MJ converted to Islam. I am a bit shocked by what has been said here. Too many hatred in one page.

    I am a Muslim. I believe that you do not impose your religion on other people. You can preach or tell them information but ultimately, it’s your decision what you do with the info. To each their own.

    I also think that most Christians have a distorted views of Islam. Who can blame them? Nowadays, even most Muslims are confused between what is religious views or practices versus culture.

    So, for MJ, welcome to Islam. May you find inner peace. To all you guys who posted before, Salaam and hope you dispel this view that MJ is leaving one club to join another. Life is difficult enough. I believe God is Most Gracious and Most Forgiving. As long as your intention is true and good, you will be in his grace.

  23. isalm is most beautiful religion becuase its more understanding if u compare it to christian, jews, others so i m happy that its true for MJ is muslim and everyone turnoing muslim everyday it the fastest and strong belief everywhere wow. so my grmdama met catholic who was asking bout islam and then out of nowhere next week came muslim and sghe white old lady islam is true instead doubt islam try to learn bout it ………….love from amuslim grrll amera
