"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."

Micheal Jackson is dead. Al Fatihah!

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji`un. From Allah we come ; to Allah we shall return.

Just saw this news on New York Times.

The King of Pop Music Mikaeel @ Michael Jackson has returned to the Almighty's presence.

Al Fatihah.

He performed in Kuala Lumpur in 1996 during his worldwide tour. Here are a couple of videos showing MJ doing his thing and how Malaysians went wild over the gloved one.

For the latest updates on worldwide responses and his billions of fans reactions on hearing about his death, click here.

A cause for concern. Michael Jackson is reported to have embraced Islam recently. His brother Jermaine Jackson is a Muslim for many years now.

Wonder how his janazah is going to be handled? Is it going to be interred in the Muslim or Christian section of the cemetery?

Let's see what transpires?

A few minutes earlier, film star Farah Fawcett died of cancer as reported here. She was a major star back in the 70's to 80's.

That's how it goes. One day so will we. Return to Him, the Most Supreme, Most High.

Insya Allah.

Dear mariam.

Here is the search page of a list of news websites which reported his embracing Islam.

Here is my blog post on the matter :

As to whether he truly was a Muslim, God knows?

Salam ^_^

Actually, Michael haven't convert to Islam yet, but he has already been reading some Islamic books provided by his brother.

From The Star's interview with Jermaine Jackson on his charity work:

"And contrary to popular belief, Michael has not converted to Islam like his older brother. But the King of Pop is studying the religion, hoping to find inner peace."

That's all. Hope this clarifies any confusion. Salam again.

Peace be to you too Kok Hoong,

As Malaysians who received the news of MJ's embracing Islam through the online media, we are not in a position to verify or deny whatever took place with him as far as his faith is concerned?

Nevertheless, he is no more. Best we can do is to wish his soul eternal peace! God Willing.

MJ left a legacy of peace through his songs.

His life stands as a testament to what will happen when parents play God and deny their children their childhood?

MJ suffered so much whilst entertaining the world.

Least we can do for him is to remember his goodness instead of dwelling upon his eccentrics.

Thanks for the feedback Kok Hoong.
