  1. brother, does it matter if a Kauffer,which all he does is whine about females, and having sex with them……who sings in instumental beats, which is HARAM in islam……who boasts about himself in music…….does it REALLY matter if he ‘claims’ to be muslim or not??

    Actually, it does matter.

    Sins, minor or major, do not take one out of Islam.

  3. The real question is him sayin he’s a muslim, how does that affect us, the rest of the muslims? It doesnt make it ok to listen to his music, it doesnt make it ok to go to his concert or to look up to him or even accept what he’s doing is Ok. In fact his open transgression puts the rest of us in a position where we have to take some action about this rapper-turn-muslim business. Someone’s gotta give them some intensive dawah. No joke, if they are in need of guidance, Allah (swt) is definately going to ask the “practising muslims ” around them why they didnt do anything to help guide them, and why they were quietly accepting that a muslim is openly flaunting his sins and we are just fine with it. Someone’s gotta do something about this, its quite serious.

  4. Is he actually Muslim or is he just saying that because he knows Muslims and respects Islam as a peaceful religion?

    Yes it does, while you are committing a sin, at that moment you are a non-believer…brothers have to use logic rather than emotion…brothers have to grasp reality..there WILL be so called “muslims”, half way believers who come to mosque once a year, there are going to be muslims in hell

  6. Salaam Alaikum,

    Ne Yo is not a muslim. There is a media group in Hollywood run by Muslims, they have gone around Hollywood getting huge stars to speak good about Islam due to the hatred for Muslims since 9/11. LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg, Will Smith etc, these are a few names that have also given similar interviews. But none are Muslim, except for Busta Rhymes, who is indeed a Muslim.

    Waliakum Salaam

  7. Salaam,

    If I see it this way: that if he was a muslim, the media would, most probably, have a programme dedicated as to why he became a muslim. And besides, my Ne-Yo-fan friends in school would be the first ones to know.

    Wassalaam

    You have misunderstood the meaning of that Hadith and become a Kharijite.

    haha explain that ahadith and explain how i am wrong my brother? and do not label me….if i was alive back then i would protect any of the khulifa al-rashideen with my life

    What is being said is that a person’s faith is incomplete, that the roots of faith are not firmly embedded in a person’s heart and soul. It is not takfeer on them.

    If you disagree with this interpretation, then you have disagreed with every Sunni ulema of all times.

    BTW, a Kharijite is anyone who makes takfeer on people for their sins. That is the definition.

  10. very true
    mortal sin does not make one a non-Muslim
    unless you’re a Kharijite, then you believe that a sin can make one a non-Muslim
    they are the only group that believe such things

    Akhi, the hadith says that a person who steals is not a believer at the time of stealing, person who commits zina is not a believer at the time of commiting zina, and a person who drinks is not a believer at the time of drinking and a person who murders as well.

    Subhanallah. Tawheedullah is right in saying that what you have said is the opinions of the khawarij.

    The Exact hadith is this:
    Hadith – Sahih Bukhari 8.800B, Narrated Ikrima from Ibn Abbas

    Allah’s Apostle said, “When a slave (of Allah) commits illegal sexual intercourse, he is not a believer at the time of committing it; and if he steals, he is not a believer at the time of stealing; and if he drinks an alcoholic drink, when he is not a believer at the time of drinking it; and he is not a believer when he commits a murder.” ‘Ikrima said: I asked Ibn Abbas, “How is faith taken away from him?” He said, Like this,” by clasping his hands and then separating them, and added, “But if he repents, faith returns to him like this,” by clasping his hands again.

    We should be soo careful as to say who is not in the fold of islam and who is. because the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if you accuse someone of being a kaafir while he is not, that person will become the kaafir. wallahu ta’ala alem.

    That is something only left to Allah to decide and in certain instances the Scholars of Islam.

    May Allah ‘az wa jal forgive us all.

  12. subhan allah..thank you brothers for correcting me, and my bad on the misinterpretation….i dont even know why i got mad…ne yo isnt even muslim lol

  13. since when did we need Kuffars who do excessive drinking , fornicating, degrade females in their awful music videos most likely broke all the 10 commandments in their belief to speak good about islam? we franticly become excited and jump up in joy when we hear these celebs mention positive stuff about islam , we have become so despret that we need these celebs to potray islam for us. anyways thats the state the ummah is in.

  14. He is just acknowledging Islam… brothers and sisters we must not forget what makes a muslim… you must pray 5 times a day, fast in the holy month of ramadan, read the qura’an and follow its teachings. just because he said that does not make him muslim and does not purify him of anything. anyways who cares?

  15. its not the fact that he is muslim or not, its like as “Wise One” said it, he is acknowledging islam and spreading the truth about it. thats the main point of the thing. who cares if he is muslim or not cuz he may have sinned but dont we all, he also has a good side to him who knows the truth

  16. everyone sins, so I guess none of us are Muslims? btw, music for pop, rap, and r&b is usually made on computers.. not actual stringed instruments.

    whether he’s Muslim or not, who cares? We are not ones to judge anyone, whether he’s a big time scholar who commits major sins or he’s an average, everyday Muslim who doesn’t commit many sins. All of us Muslims need to stop judging people and picking battles within our community. This is the exact reason that new reverts leave Islam. First think about your own lifestyle and what you need to fix before you try being God and judging everyone else around you. People will believe in what they wanna believe in and we can’t change that, only Allah can guide them if it’s in their destiny. So let’s all think for a moment and see what we are accomplishing by judging others and their lifestyles. Is it getting you any closer to Allah or Heaven or becoming a better Muslim?

  17. OK! so why do you guys care? not tryign to be rude or anything. if he wants to be a muslim let him be. and if he doesn’t let him not. why should we care? and i agree, it is haram to listen to music. but you can hear it once in a while. just let him do what he wants to do. and he didn’t say he was a muslim. he’s jut telling you what islam is. and what the quran is. so if i go on nation tv. and i say christianity is this.. and the bible is this… me being a muslim.. is that me telling you guys i’m a christian?? and even if i was? does it really matter? so what if he is a muslim… do you really care? you’re gonna welcome him in? you think everyone is gonna start respecting the religion on islam just because he’s muslim…? lol. wow. whatever. just don’t do anything to embarass us. this actually makes me mad. him trying to be a muslim, or being a muslim.. and you guys are gonna take charge? lol. good luck! 🙂 now their really gonna think we’re terrorists. just leave the man alone. everyone is racist against eachother these days… now it’s muslim man against muslim man?

  18. p.s. the last comment i made goes out to addy and beans.. you guys just think about it. welcome the man in is he’s muslim or not. stop trying to be racist… 😎

  19. aleykum ve selaam my brothers and sisters

  21. lolol your all stuffed
    stop judging people, your all
    in no position to do that.
    So before you make such
    comments think about yourself.
    Obviously your not perfect and btw
    Ne-Yo didnt say he is muslim, and he
    hasn’t done anything wrong to any one
    so shut your mouth or else keep to yourself.

  22. i think it matters if neyo is muslim or not ,, eventhough he’s a singer,with girlz and so on.Ths is something btw him and ALLAH..whether allah will make him better…or let him wot he is..so it really really matters that all people good and bad accpt islam…and their doingz in life will be judged by ALLAH
    thnx

  23. i would like to bleaive hes a muslim but, he didnt say that so you cant say he is a muslim but really all this its haram what he does and if he is a muslim hes a shame to muslim but really i mean if hes a muslim that great allah leads and misleads who ever he wants but all i can see in that video is a man who is very famus that does not bleaive all these stareotypes about islam and i can see an effert to know more and thats it so insha allah he will ambrase islam i would like that but its up to allah.

  24. i swear by god.. even before knowing that he`s a Muslim.. i had that feelings inside of me saying that he is .. i just don`t know how to explain it ..

  25. ok,,,

    let me get this straight.. i have done research and ne-yo is not muslim, although t-pain & akon r, but it really dosnt matter, because being a muslim isnt about just saying that ur one, it is about showing it and doing it 2, and i dnt think all these celeb muslims r showing or doin it!
    thz
    [btw, im muslim, so i aint against anything in ma message]

  26. I believe what ne-you say cuz i really really proud 2 be a muslim cuz muslim is the original region.

    i don’t know what christian thinks…….

    christian reallly isn’t good

    cuz u know their God is our prophet…….

    ALLAH IS MOST GRACEFULL AND MERCIFULL TO OL………
    AND
    ALLAH IS ONLY GOD……….

    NOT JESUS WHATEVER CHRISTIAN U BE IN HELL….

    GOODLUCK IN THEIR IT’S OUCHY AND HEHHEHE…..

    MUSLIM THE BEST…………………!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AND ♥

  27. Ne-Yo is most definitely NOT a muslim! Firstly, he is far too intelligent to follow such a hollow religion and secondly, he loves to sing about pum pum and he could not do that is he was a muzzie!!!

  28. I honestly don’t give a monkey’s ass whether he is Muslim or not. Like who cares. 😐

  29. Please don’t be judgemental. Anyone can change at any time if Allah wants him to. He might be an even better muslim than you if Allah wants him to. and the thing on instrumental music, there are many views on it. it’s not haram in my view and millions of other views.

    Just my 2cents worth 🙂

  30. FOR ANYONE BASHING ISLAM OR ALLAH BIG SHAME ON U, HOW CAN U BE SO IGNORANT? You do not even know what you are talking about and in your life you have just very stupidly committed the biggest sin of all, being so evil to even utter such nonsense and ignorant and mean and having that hate in ur heart will only lead you to the worst places in this world and the next, whether u believe in it or not, that is your loss ONLY, and you bashing it is just adding the worse of sins on ur record, and leading you on a worst path of becoming an even worst person!

    Allah forgives all so go learn something about TRUTH for your own sake before the day u die and its too late, with no belief ofcourse in ur heart non of these things will matter to u now but i pray Allah guides you because the only loser at the end will be you my friend!

    God is the only one that can judge you now, though not only am I so insulted, yet I still have peace in my heart, for I know much better then u and just feel pity on you and for that I am not mad anymore because no matter what u think or say bad about Islam, it can never cover the TRUTH, which u fail to know or even seek…. your small minds and bad words in this world mean nothing compared to the love and faith Muslims have for God and other people. So God bless you I hope one day you will regret your words and see the light and become a better person!

    Salams to all !!!!!!!
