Imam Visits Michael Jackson’s Family to Discuss Funeral Arrangements

UPDATE: Many have asked concerning the below. I heard the report on CNN’s Wolf Blitzer’s show “The Situation Room”. He briefly mentioned it during the coverage of Michael Jackson.Al-Hamdulillah, CNN reported that the Jackson family is meeting with an imam to make the funeral arrangements for the janazah (Muslim funeral prayer) for Michael Jackson. I pray that Allah will have mercy on his soul and grant the family some privacy as they make the plans for a Muslim funeral. I ask Muslims to reserve their judgement and pray for him and his family. Please send your condolences: http://www.legacy.com/gb2/default.aspx?bookid=5875644172354 .

I pray that Muslims will respond to this loss our brother in every loving way possible. I do not know when and were the prayers will be. I trust that the masjid that Jermaine Jackson attends will handle the prayers and preparation. The West Coast Muslims in LA and Imam Zaid Shaker or Sheikh Hamza are hopefully in the loop? May Allah help them. We have not had a major figure in the pop world pass away before Micheal Jackson. I pray that we will do our best and that Allah will have mercy show.

I think it is true that Michael Jackson has converted to Islam.

May Allah bless his soul.

I hope that Uncle Mahboob can attend Michael Jackson’s janazah prayer in LA.

I am sad because our Muslim brother died too soon.

  1. May Allah bless our brother Michael and give his place in Jannat. He was very nice and humble person in the world of rude and arrogant celebrities. There was no bigger star than him and yet he was the most humble. Did anyone elver see him be mean to any photographer or a fan? The answer is NO. The world will miss him.
    Innalaahi Winnaelahi Rajaun.

  2. First I would like to tell Mrs Jackson that you are in my prayers. I did’nt know Micheal personally, but I did know the entertainer and my heart goes out to you. I listen to the news and I hear how they talk about Micheal Jackson, but not once have I heard them mention Micheal Jackson the Son, And I say that with
    pain in my heart. Because the world is forgetting that not only was he this big entertainer he was your son. The world forgets who a person really is when they become famous. Before he was famous he was and still is your son, And no mother should have to bury their child before them. But I say this to you, Mother to Mother, ALLAH has him safe. ALLAH is holding a place for when Micheal your Son will be with his family Again. So hold on Mother Jackson. just like Micheal your son said in one of his songs.( YOU ARE NOT ALONE, I’M AM HEAR WTIH YOU. THOUGH WE FAR APART YOUR ALWAYS IN MY HEART YOU ARE NOT ALONE.(MOTHER)………………………………………………………………..
