"In writing this essay, I was given information from sources I considered reliable that Michael had indeed become Muslim. Obviously, the part about Dawud Warnsby is not true. However, there have been many reports throughout the media concerning Michael becoming Muslim. Allah knows best as to their veracity."

Imam Zaid Shakir is one of Islam's leading young thinkers. I will be meeting him soon (if God wills) when he comes to the UK.

He was a person that liked drugs and little boys. God will decide what happens next. All the #1 hits and dance moves can and will never change the way I feel about him and the way others feel about him. He is a child molester and thats it. Maybe the god he prays to will think being a pervert is a good thing. I dont think my god would feel that way. 1 less spot in hell I guess.

From the story:

"After my conversion in 1977, there was no one around to tell me that music was Haram (forbidden)"

Gosh! Whodathunk that listening to Beethoven's 9th Symphony, not to mention Jackson't "Thriller," -once it was learned that such behavior was Haram- could land a Muslim in hell!

Say whatever about Michael Jackson, but he's no child molester. I think you have him confused with Mohammad.

You are a sick puppy. Get help. This obsession of yours is not healthy. I worry about the children in your neighbourhood.

There is a difference of opinion in Islam about music. Some feel there is no issue with it, others feel it is expressly forbidden. Where there is a difference of opinion, it becomes an individual/ communal decision.

No, Muslims are sick puppies; they worship a non-existent moon god, and revere a pedophile as a prophet. No wonder MJ was interested in Islam.

Are you telling us that the Koran isn't very clear about this issue?

What else isn't it clear about?
