He said: "The Call to Prayer happens five times a day and for the first week it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit and it's the most beautiful, beautiful thing.

"There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim."

???

Does that sound like he's really thinking about converting to Islam?

Strange that I hear it daily when I was in Malaysia and I only got more fedup as I grow older.... maybe Malays just doesn't know how to recite properly.

He's Irish. Don't pay any attention. In a few days, he will sober up and be Catholic again.

I read the interview, he said the loud speakers calling people to prayer five times aday became an expected thing, he became more comfortable with it the longer he was there, he respected the dedication and the prayers he watched. He said he considered it, he did not say he did it. He will not do it, he is a Catholic, his wife died last year, she was a Catholic, all his children are Catholic....he wants to see them one day in the heaven he has always believed in...he will not convert.

No, of course not! It was just muslim's wishful thinking.

"Liam Neeson refutes rumors he considered converting to Islam"

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/goss...

The "Taken 3" star confirmed he has no plans to leave his Roman Catholic beliefs despite reports that he considered converting to Islam while filming in Turkey.

Neeson set the record straight at the "Taken 3" premiere Monday night in Dubai.

"No, I'm not converting," Neeson said in an interview with Al Arabiya News.

The original conversion rumors first came about in a 2012 The Sun article, and were recently resurfaced by The Daily Mail.

In the interview, the Oscar nominee told The Sun that during his time filming "Taken 2" in Turkey the Islamic prayer "got him into the spirit."

"The call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it's the most beautiful, beautiful thing. There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning, and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim," Neeson reportedly told The Sun.

The 62-year-old clarified to Al Arabiya News that he did not have a religious awakening, but rather learned to enjoy the Islamic prayer, which "was an annoyance because it was waking me up. But later I looked forward to it every day."
