"Verily my solats, my ibadah, my life and my death I surrender to Almighty Allah, Creator and Lord of all the worlds. Never will I associate anything with Him. So am I commanded and I am of those who are Muslims."

Michael Jackson is now Mikaeel, a Muslim.

Micheal Jackson, the King of Pop music has embraced Islam at a ceremony attended by Yusuf Islam a.k.a. Cat Stevens, another superstar who has become one of the best Da'ee's @ Callers to Islam since he himself became a Muslim many years back.

He has chosen the name of the Angel of Allah, Mika'el Alaihis Salam as his Muslim name. The similarity of the Christian name of Michael to Mikaeel could also be a reason why?

He declined to use the name of Mustafa @ the Chosen One when offered to him by his Muslim friends who were there when the occasion took place.

Mikaeel @ Michael Jackson uttered the Kalima Syahadah before Canadian film editor, singer, song writer, poet, performer and television personality Davud Wharmsby Ali who is also a Muslim and Philip Bubal, a Muslim producer.

The reversion of Michael Jackson to Islam took place at the home of an original member of Toto, a famous band back in the 80s, keyboardist Steve Porcaro, Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, USA.

Mikaeel Jackson is famous all over the world for his hits such as 'Beat It', 'Thriller', 'Bad', 'Billie Jean', etc.

The King of Pop is best known for his amazing transformation of his skin color from being black to white through a series of treatments and for his eccentric behavior of sleeping in an oxygen tank, his reclusiveness, creating Neverland, his private 'Disneyland' type of entertainment park , etc. This site records the transformation of Mikaeel @ Michael Jackson through his life.

Reality of what a botched up series of plastic surgeries can do to one's features is just quite scary as witnessed by the sufferings experienced by this man throughout his life.

I feel sorry for Mikaeel and wish that one day, some gifted plastic surgeon can really do him justice and restore to Mikaeel a face and especially the nose that would make him look normal again.

Mikaeel is 2 months older than me. We were both born in 1958.

As a Muslim, I welcome Mikaeel's reversion to Islam, the very faith that our souls attested unto and wish him well.

We are all humans and tend to commit slip ups and errors in our own individual lives. We have an Age of Ignorance and gradually come to a stage where we acquire an Age of Knowing and Learning.

Through our own efforts and the work of others, we gradually evolve to be who we want to be?

Mikaeel Jackson is only right in becoming a Muslim. He now needs all the help and prayers that we who are Muslims can give him.

The past is just that. We all need to look towards the future.

I believe that Mikaeel's talents will do him well in the field of Nasyeed such as what Yusuf Islam @ Cat Stevens, Sami Yusuf, David Wharmsby, Zain Bhikha and other prominent Muslim personalities in the world's Nasyeed scene.

Insya Allah.

Good luck to you Mikaeel Jackson. May Allah bless your heart with the peace and tranquility that you have been seeking for all this while.

Alhamdulilah... I do pray and hope this for real .Let's think that he is not going to be Mike Tyson kind of conversion.

As a "Mua'alaf" I can feel what he feel when reciting the Shahadah...

A very reliable brother whom I know personally, who is also well known in the Muslim media, called Yusuf Islam's daughter. She said that Yusuf Islam does not know Mike. This story is FALSE. Please share your sources. Thank you.

Assalamualaikum Brother Mikael Pittam @ IslamCrunch,

My sources are numerous. Here are some reliable sites which reported the news of his embracing Islam:






Whether Michael Jackson is now a Muslim or is falsely being reported to have become one as you claim, Da'ee's like us should just wish him well.

I am living here in Malaysia. You are there in the States.

I rely upon online news reports to have an idea of what's happening worldwide.

Surely sites like the Saudi Gazette aren't going to publish false news?

Nevertheless, I for one wish that Michael gets some Sakinah in his life and in his heart.

The man's suffered enough.

Let's just wish him well and move on.

No point in debating or doubting news that Mike is Muslim or not.

There are a billion over Muslims whom we need to assist with our do'a and help if we can?

Fee amanillah ya Mikael Pittam @ IslamCrunch.

Wassalamualaikum wr wb.
