** Michael --> Mikaeel - What you feel about it?



Michael --> Mikaeel

For the last few days this big news is rocking the entire world. Do you know what's that? Here check it out.... The world's famous Pop superstar Michael Jackson has confirmed his conversion to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel, according to reports in the Middle East. Converting to some other culture is purely their own interest and idea, no one is having rights to interfere in these kind of things. But how far his fans from all over the world are going to accept this issue? That's the question here... In addition to these questions, read this article too which I found out in web.

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."

What you all feel about this?

Then I guess it's his second try at converting to Islam. The previous one was rumored like more than 10 years ago.

At least he got his named changed now. I never heard of any Muslim by the name of Mikaeel although it does sounds familiar.
