Michael Jackson is building a mosque

Sheikh Michael is building a mosque in Bahrain. Eih el 7alawah dih? World’s top pop singer Michael Jackson, who recently settled down in Manama has donated a huge amount of money, the figure was not disclosed, for building a state-of-the-art mosque near his luxury palace in the Bahraini capital, according to his spokesman. The proposed mosque would be designated for learning the principles and teachings of Islam, as well as teaching of English language, for which high-standard teachers would be brought from United States under his personal supervision, the spokesman said. Under his personal supervision? You mean the teachers will be surpervised by Michael? And see his freaky face everyday? Now that's a deal breaker if I ever heard of one. Jackson did so as a token of appreciation to the Bahraini people, who welcomed him and treated him as if he was one of the citizens of their country. Dude, imagine if he converts to Islam. Would that be a good thing or a bad thing? Like, do you think we would brag about it? Would it help our self-esteem or, like, hurt it even more? Cause, honestly, I am still not sure if the Mike Tyson conversion to Islam helped Islam's image all that much, You know? So one can only wonder what kind of damage an M.J. conversion would do.

actually i think it's good that MJ is thinking of reverting. anyone reverting is good, anyone sincerely building a mosque is good, pls don't put barriers for anyone who wants to strive in Allah's ways. u know that's not right.

& pls don't care so much what the anti-muslims think of Islam. we do things to please Allah not them.

inna solati wa nusuki wa mahyaya wa mamati lillahi rabbil 'alamin. in the Quran, Allah had clearly reminded us not follow the lusts of the anti-muslims. so maybe they make fun of MJ & muslims, but pleasing them is not our goal.

i hope MJ, u, me & all muslims will find peace & blessed by Allah.

My problems with most Anti-Islam folks is there fanatic tone. worse still they also tend to build conspiracy theories once attacked by a faithful muslim yet they denounce conspiracy theories made againest them.

my point is i have no doubt in my heart on the correctness and purity of Islam, yet i'm concerned about the health of the moderate islamic community favoring civil society (not the western style i know, but who said that western style is okay!!) in the middle of these fanatic attacks on Islam.

Hey, in reference to your "Do Muslims have self-esteem" issues post, and the comments you made about Everlast...he is actually pretty famously a Muslim convert, at least in American society.

Check out the D-12 song, "Quitter". Emimnem has some theories as to why he really converted. :)

What a joke. Its bad enoughh that the muslims cant read the koran and understand what it really says.. They kill their own people, they cant even take a stand and all be one..LOL they are so dumb they kill each each other. (now dont attack me, my father is muslim and my mom is catholic and I lived in both in Egypt and America).. And they never finish what they start..
Thats what we need another fucking criminal to join the league.. or maybe its a popular club.. He is gonna build a mosque? Why? Does he think god is really gonna forgive him for violating young children? And what the hell is wako gonna teach? what does he know? For all we know bin ladden could be teaching him and he is so far gone he wont even know it.. And great all the wako fans get to join in..
And all his little tramps will start wearing the scarf and they will be like most arab women.. Whores that hide behind a rag.. And dont even dare tell me thats not ture.. I dont trust any girl that wears that damn thing inclduing my own sister. It will be the next fashion statement.
Please.....I will just print flyers and send them to all the jails in florida and tell them to build a mosque.. Allah will forgive you.. If god forgives someone that can violate a child I will pick hell..
Another bored rich person..

why can't we be open to goodness? Even if it might start out from someone like Michael jackson, by the way he has a moslem brother.

What i want to say is God and Prophet Muhammed taught us to always try to take the good side and give people chances? Why is that upsetting every one, what if this is a hedaya from God. It may not be, But that is for God to know and for us to wait and see. why instead of mocking the man, not pray that Allah yahdi and to help him repent. Oh and by the way, I am not defending him, but God said He forgives all sins other than Al shirk..

We need to pray for hedaya for people rather than mocking them. Ya3ni for instance instead of showing general apathy for non moslems, and praying against them, why not pray for Allah to Yahdeehom to the right path?

Let him build the mosque, why be negative about it? It might turn out to be something good, and if not, then what the hell, as if many things around us are soo good! Allah yahdeena all.

Can you give me some examples of that, Dalulla? All I ever seem to see is examples like Mohamed's (the one who commented here) who says it's good to teach little girls that Jews are Apes & Pigs, and then tells us how wonderful Islam is. I think it would be a wonderful thing if the world was exposed to some positive examples of what Islam is about, instead of examples like Mohamed's.

I can think of one likely motivation for Michael Jackson starting a school. It will be attended by young children many (all?) of them boys.

I´m a girl of 17 living in germany!but my dad is from mauretania. I never have been a fan of jacko! But I think if he really is or want to convert to the islam you others should give him a chance! I really cant imagine that he wants to do this, cause than it would have been shown by the medias.
It´s wrong to judge about him by the way you do.It´s true, michaeal has been in lot of trouble but the majority of his problem had been produce by people who want to hurt him! thats what I think!
Anonymus, I´m not going to tell you to stop judying him but you say he think god is going to forgive him for violating children!1st of all you dont know if he violant them!cause he is unguilty on all charges. You should stop judying on him(without a reason)! 2nd thing is you say "And what the hell is jako gonna teach? what does he know?" well I guess you read the report from above were it says "The proposed mosque would be designated for learning the principles and teachings of Islam...as well as teaching of English language" so he dont want to teach, he wants to be teach and also give others the chance to be teach and learn about the koran!

this is for "programmer craig"

you appear to be concerned and probably a little disturbed about the examples of muhammed. you said "i think it would be a wonderful thing if the world was exposed to some positive examples of what islam is about, instead of examples like mohamed's."
as you said it mohamed is not an example of integrity, kindness, puresness, love, or care.

1. He did not keep the rules he imposed upon others. he had more wives than four (Bukhari vol. I, no. 268) and did not write a will (Bukhari vol. IV, nos. 3,4). and disturbingly enough his wife Aisha was only 6 years old when she was married to muhammed and they consumated that marriage when she was 9 years old.
2. he commanded that anyone who fell away from islam should be murdered. (Bukhari vol. IV, no. 260; vol. V, no. 630) volume IX is filled with death threats against apostasy (pgs. 10,11,26,34,45,50,57,341,342). these hadiths contradict other hadiths which say that no one ever leaves islam (Bukhari vol. I, nos. 6, 48).
The punishment of apostates reveals that he did not believe in the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of assembly and the freedom of the press. the fact that he commanded that no churches or synagogues be allowed in arabia is a telling argument that he was not a man of peace.
3. muhammed was a dog hater. he thought that angels could not enter a house if a dog was there and that black dogs were devils. thus he ordered dogs to be killed and forbid the selling of dogs. (Bukhari vol. IV, nos. 539,540; Muslim vol. I, nos. 551,552; vol. II, nos. 3803,3829).
4. people turn into rats, pigs and monkeys. (Bukhari vol. IV, nos. 524,627; Muslim vol. IV, no. 7135). abraham's father was turned into an animal (Bukhari vol. IV,no. 569)
that abraham's father was turned into an animal is not biblical.

in conclusion i agree with you that muhammed's teachings and examples are not rightous. arabia was converted to islam by force not by consent. him and his followers violated a term peace accorded by meccan leaders and muhammed in which it was accorded that muhammed would be allowed to preach, not force, to the people. he violated that and force upon them his religion. so did his followers after his death with every country which they gained control. countries such as egypt, lebanon, turkey, etc.
how different was Christ! he never forced anyone to believe in his teachings. he tought us to love our enemies and to do good to those that do us evil. his teachings are so just and pure. in marcus 10 he rids out polygamy and divorce without cause. he rids out the teaching of "eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth". that is a great example to follow.
