Michael Jackson a true Muslim?

Reader comment on item: King of Pop Michael Jackson and Black Converts to Islam

There are certain points to consider.

1. Jackson's conversion to Islam is still a rumor, nothing officially confirmed.

2. Even if he converted, Jackson was not a true Muslim. In the "purest" form of Islam, singing is "haram" or a sin... With his crazy "disco" life styles, his long hair and weird life he was never a true Muslim. Muslims around the world are just playing double standards and crying "ho ho" to make him "their own" just because he was a world famous man. They won't care if the person under discussion was an ordinary African American man.

3. If Michael converted to Islam, I feel sad for him. I pray for his soul. By converting to Islam he had denied the Lord Jesus Christ and he will be judged at the end times along with 1 billion Muslims. Whoever denied Jesus Christ will not have eternal life and will not be "Home" with the Father, the Almighty God.

The greatest mistake that Jackson ever made was to associate himself with this thing called "Islam". I like your music Jackson, but going to Islam??!! That was the biggest mistake of your life.
