I for one have no clue who really sung the song, but reading some of the other comments I've noticed some the hatred of the fact that MJ has converted to Islam. Maybe he didn't. He lived near Saudi Arabia for a while and maybe they wanted him to sing this song. I'm pretty sure that muslims do appreciate music ,so saying this "I have no doubt that Michael will add to long history of creative Muslim music, oops there is no Muslim music. Well, then the dancing ,what no dancing for Muslims." is a harsh thing to say about a culture.

Islamic nations were really the only thing that stood agaisnt the Imprealistic Europeans Trying to take the "Holy Land Back" when they didnt live there to begin with. But back to Religion, why isnt there just one religion for the World..all religions should have the same principles and most of them do. Mainly, don't steal dont kill dont lie dont cheat. Yet everyone only sees the differences (cultural differences).
