Islam, Muslim, Blog, Muslims

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi commented on MuslimMatters here:

I gave a khutbah at a masjid yesterday, the second half of which was dedicated to the passing away of Michael Jackson. Before the rumors spread even more, let me clarify explicitly what I said:

My thoughts on Michael Jackson’s death

The Angel of Death has come for the King of Pop.

Next stop: us.

Are we ready?

The sahabahs (companions of the Prophet – peace be upon him and his companions) are here:


We’re going there too!

Can’t fit much except for your body wrapped with cloth.

May Allah forgive us all and guide us all.

Yusuf Islam on Michael Jackson’s Death

“It’s always inevitable, but a shock when death comes. With Michael, it seems to me even more shocking, and I feel very sad. He seemed to have the heart of a child, though he was a giant of a musician. The moment I heard he had been taken to hospital, the worst was anticipated. I hope he finally worked out his purpose in life, before he left it. I just discovered his middle name was Joseph. He’ll be missed.”


Dawud Wharnsby Ali – The Passing of Michael Jackson

From the same source of life – we all come, and inevitably so we must all return.

The passing of artist and performer Michael Jackson yesterday was quite a shock to many. My thoughts and prayers are with the Jackson family during this difficult time – and especially with Micheal’s young children. May they be protected from the media machine that so tragically tore up much of Michael’s life, while ironically celebrating him as one of the world’s most incredible and dynamic performers.

Imam Zaid Shakir – Upon The Passing of Michael Jackson

Like the light of a meteor streaking across the crisp, cold, clear sky of a winter’s night, Michael Jackson, streaked across the sky defining this country’s cultural horizons. None of us coming of age in urban America will forget Michael’s debut onto the public stage with his brothers as part of the phenomenally successful Jackson 5. Hit after hit, “I Want You Back,” “ABC,” “The Love You Save,” “I’ll Be There,” rocketed up the Billboard Charts to number one. I can still reel them all off from memory some forty years later. For better or worse, they are indelibly etched into my mind, and have played a part in defining my soul.

NEW MUSLIM COOL airs on PBS, Tuesday, June 23 @ 10 pm

Premiere Date: June 23, 2009

Puerto Rican-American rapper Hamza Pérez pulled himself out of drug dealing and street life 12 years ago and became a Muslim. Now he’s moved to Pittsburgh’s tough North Side to start a new religious community, rebuild his shattered family and take his message of faith to other young people through hard-hitting hip-hop music. But when the FBI raids his mosque, Hamza must confront the realities of the post-9/11 world, and himself. New Muslim Cool takes viewers on Hamza’s ride through streets, slums and jail cells — following his spiritual journey to some surprising places in an America that never stops changing. Produced in association with Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB) and the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM).

Snopp Dogg – “Asalamu Alaykum”

One step closer. Like Malcolm X, Siraj Wahhaj, and the 1,000s that have come, may Allah guide him. Ameen.
