Why Michael Jackson Didn’t Get an Islamic Funeral?

Paris, Michael Jackson's daughterMichael Jackson on November 2008 had converted to Islam. His brother, Jermaine Jackson and also his friends, David Whamsby and Phillip Bubal have witnessed about Michael’s conversion.

But why they don’t respect Michael Jackson’s choice by giving him an Islamic Funeral?

According to Islam, others Muslims should come and pray for Michael Jackson closely.

Why they don’t care about Michael Jackson by giving Michael Jackson’s children into Non Muslims?

Maybe it’s just like Michael Jackson’s song: “They Don’t Care about Us!”

MICHAEL JACKSON has become a Muslim – and changed his name to MIKAEEL.

The skint superstar, 50, donned Islamic garb to pledge allegiance to the Koran in a ceremony at a pal’s mansion in Los Angeles, The Sun can reveal.

Jacko sat on the floor wearing a tiny hat after an Imam was summoned to officiate – days before the singer is due to appear at London’s High Court where he is being sued by an Arab sheik.

A source told last night how Jacko, brought up as a Jehovah’s Witness, decided to convert as he used a studio at the home of his chum to record a new album.

The star – whose hits include The Way You Make Me Feel – was spotted looking “a bit down” by a producer and a songwriter who had both embraced Islam.

Shahada

The source said: “They began talking to him about their beliefs, and how they thought they had become better people after they converted. Michael soon began warming to the idea.

“An Imam was summoned from the mosque and Michael went through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief.” Mikaeel is the name of one of Allah’s angels.

“Jacko rejected an alternative name, Mustafa – meaning “the chosen one”.

Brit singer Yousef Islam, 60 – who was called Cat Stevens until he famously converted – turned up to help Jacko celebrate.

It was his pals David Wharnsby – a Canadian songwriter – and producer Phillip Bubal who counselled Jacko.

The pair’s new names are Dawud Wharnsby Ali and Idris Phillips.

Jacko now prays to Mecca after the ceremony at the Hollywood Hills home of Toto keyboard player Steve Porcaro, 51, who composed music on the singer’s Thriller album.

The singer, who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, converted to Islam in a ceremony at a friend’s house in Los Angeles.

He is said to have sat on the floor and worn a small hat while an imam officiated.

According to The Sun, the ceremony took place while Jackson, 50, was recording an album at the home of Steve Porcaro, a keyboard player who composed music on his Thriller album.

The former Jackson 5 star was counselled by David Wharnsby, a Canadian songwriter, and Phillip Bubal, a producer, who have both converted.

A source said Jackson had appeared a “bit down” and added: “They began talking to him about their beliefs, and how they thought they had become better people after they converted. Michael soon began warming to the idea.

“An imam was summoned from the mosque and Michael went through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief.”

Last year his brother, Jermaine Friday, suggested Jackson would convert having taken an interest in Islam since Friday’s conversion in 1989.

“When I came back from Mecca I got him a lot of books and he asked me lots of things about my religion and I told him that it’s peaceful and beautiful,” said Friday.

“He read everything and he was proud of me that I found something that would give me inner strength and peace.

“I think it is most probable that Michael will convert to Islam.

“He could do so much, just like I am trying to do. Michael and I and the word of God, we could do so much.”

  1. i think micheal.jackson did convert to muslim and was a muslim but only allah or in english god new if micheal.jackson was a muslim and did convert to muslim.

  2. if really michel converted to islam then why was he not given an islanic burial

  3. Because Michael is already dead.
    If he was live, then he will make an Islamic burial for him.

    Unfortunately he cannot do that and his father and mother and most of his brothers and sisters were Christian so he didn’t get an Islamic funeral.

  4. I agree with nizaminz. Also this is showbusiness there are CD, Films and alot things about MJ to be sold!! Muslim pop star !! No it isnot acceptable in the devil showbusiness they never let it happen never!!! Open your eyes and look what they did to Micheal !!!! I do believe that he wanted his conversion secret because he knew how bad things may have happened to someone who embraced Islam in the western world!! and Above all it was very personal!!

  5. I really hope that michael was a muslim when he died, he deserves it, because i thing he is a good person, there are a lot of contradictions in his life,I think due to his invironment and the cicumstances in his life.
    may he rest in peace.

  6. Assallamualakum whwt to all muslim brothers & sisters thus greeting to non-muslim,
    We have to look upon different perspective .. For every person in this world seeking truthful in believing to the creator is a long journey to choose a truthful path.
    For the atheist which does not belief in the existing of creator … stop their mind thinking of creator … with reasons all ting happened coincident … does it !!!!
    For whom to belief the existing of GOD must understand the faith they belief … choose the rightfulness of the teaching … don`t be prejudice … prostrate and deep thinking … GOD will show you a sign to reach him (ALLAH SWT)
    This is happened to our beloved late brother MIKAiEL (Michael). He’s choose his faith and ALLAH SWT show him a sign and lighten his hearth … Alhamdulillah he’s a muslim. Even though he departed this fana (temporary) world without an appropriate islamic burrier but still besdide ALLAH SWT … MIKAIEL is his servant who’s surrender and worship to oness GOD … ALLAH ALMIGHTY.
    In entertainment world … business in concern most .. not to loss anything .. such open declaration change of faith by MIKAIEL in ISLAM will jeopardize the entertainment business … OR most of all .. declaration change of faith to islam by MIKAIEL will follow by his fan .. OR another word will tarnishing the christian american image …. and as we know the cause of MIKAIEL death is very doubtful … is’nt it !!!
    The same thing goes to the death of Princess Diana …. years ago when she get steadily with Doddy … a son of rich muslim businessman.
    WE should say that … there’s a reason why MIKAIEL did not get a proper muslim burrier … it’s political issue that stood behind and the world knows about it … the americam media for most of all manipulating islam … only shows bad thing about islam … islam is a truthful religion which teach it believer in worshiping oness of GOD … ALLAH SWT. To do good deed, 5 time prayers, fasting in month of ramadhan, alms and Haj.
    Our loving late brother MIKAIEL / Michael Jackson … in good hand of ALLAH SWT …. Jannah (haven) for him and may ALLAH SWT bless his soul .. insyaallah swt.

  7. It was shem to mj family.boz they r not leving like a muslim.

  8. Michael Jackson the best pop singer ever…

  9. I just hope that he is in a better place now and may Allah forgive all his sins ameen:)
