  • Pop star Janet Jackson was the ‘Beyonce’ of her era

July 6, 2014

Albawaba– A bunch of Hollywood A-Listers were “exposed” as Muslims over the years, and after Janet Jackson married Qatari billionaire businessman Wissam al Mana it was obvious that she’d joined the “Muslim Club” too!

The couple tied the knot in 2012.

Now that Ramadan is upon us, rumor has it that the American pop star will be observing the Holy month for the first time after converting to Islam last year, reports International Business Times, IBT UK.

The 48-year-old singer was raised in a Christian family, but her elder brother Jermaine Jackson had openly announced his conversion to Islam years ago.

Madonna islam

Madonna made waves in the mid-1990s when she began studying the Kabbalah, a Jewish esoteric tradition that draws from the mystical and prophetic visions described throughout the Torah. Now she’s causing uproar with the news that she’s begun studying the Koran, the sacred text of Islam, joining celebs like Janet Jackson, Dave Chappelle, and Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), who reportedly also practice Islam. Is this a Madonna-worthy publicity stunt or an earnest attempt to deepen her spirituality?

    This seems like this is an attempt to sell Islam in the West. Celebrities tend to be the chief tools to sell a new product or trend. This is the attempt at least to re-write the Western world as we know it and I doubt it will be in the interest of the people there. I don’t have any issue with people who want to be Muslims, it is just what this is being used for that is the problem.

    Anybody should go where he/she believes that there is light. What I believe is that it is not possible for all of us to belong to what religion, the most important thing is that one should go to where they believe their salvation is. I don’t like the situation where Christian will be saying that you cannot enter paradise except if you become born again likewise when the Muslim will be saying that die not except you are a muslim. why can’t you leave people alone to do any religion they like. Only God knows the best.
