Ok - Michael Jackson is dead. He converted to Islam. Will he be a good muslim?
He needs to be buried QUICK (has not happened yet), washed in a MOSQUE and have a quiet and low key burial.
And he better answer some questions correctly or he is going to feel the heat!
Pre-Burial Rules and Rituals
In the Islam religion, it is customary to begin processes for burying the dead within 24 hours of the death. In non-Muslim countries, this can sometimes be a problem if the death occurs on a weekend or a holiday, when a death certificate can not be attained, and therefore the process cannot start. It begins with a ritual washing of the body; men washing men's bodies and women washing women's bodies. Either a man or woman may wash a child's body, and a husband is allowed to wash his wife's body, and vise-versa, if the need arises. It is preferred that the body is washed by close friends or relatives, rather than hospital staff or undertakers. Imams (prayer leaders of mosques) may also wash men, as well as midwifes may also wash females. Washing was traditionally done at the graveside, and still is if facilities are available. However, it is more common now to perform this in a mosque, which often has special sections for this purpose. The entire body is then wrapped in a funeral shroud made of clean, white cloth, tied at the head and the feet.
Typical funeral prayers include saying "Allāhu Akbar" which means "God is Great," followed by the mourners folding their hands on their chests.
The site of the grave is also very important in the Islam religion. Additionally, both cremation and embalming are forbidden in the Muslim faith, and the practice of burying at sea is only allowed if absolutely necessary. The grave itself should be aligned on a northeast to southwest axis, facing Mecca.
According to Islam, life continues in the grave after the body is buried. Life in the grave is known as Barzakh. According to Islamic tradition, while in the grave, two angels question the newly dead. Their names are Munkar and Nakir. They ask the person three questions:
1. Who is your God?
2. Who is your prophet?
3. What is your faith?
If the person answers correctly -- Allah, Islam and Muhammad -- the angels will make the grave more comfortable. They open a window where the view and orders of paradise can be enjoyed. For those who do not answer correctly, a window to hell will be opened, their grave will narrow, their ribs are crushed as they feel the heat and hot winds of hell. This will continue while the person awaits judgment. Only those who die in Jihad will go directly to Paradise.
Torment in the grave is clearly taught in Islam, especially in the traditions of the prophet.
2. Who is your prophet?
3. What is your faith?
If the person answers correctly -- Allah, Islam and Muhammad
You got 2 out of 3 wrong. Congrats..
As I understand it, the receiver is the homosexual in islam, the pitcher is simply enjoying pleasure.
Give it a rest, troll.
Actually I know a little about this and number one is that they need the Iman’s permission for the atopsy and if given the burial doesn’t have to be right away. A friend’s father was muslin. The Iman did the washing at the funeral home and then he was taken to the mosque.
A whispered yet common expression in Islamic nations is: "Women are for families, boys are for fun."
“He needs to be buried QUICK”
One of his final instuctions was that certain parts of him
be melted into LEGGOs, so the kids could play with him ...
Do not Jews have burial rules?
I think he was a lost soul who had no childhood and the wealth of a king.
Actually, he was broke and a half billion in dept.
What? He’ll want ANOTHER 72 Virgins?
to quote FTL
This is how I will remember the pedophile pervert:
This is Baby-Dangler Man, the Messiah of tards the world over. How can you be so heartless!
Most of these weenies are really mourning over their own lost youth and what this really represents to them. Funny to watch their midlife crisis unfold before us, this bunch of people in their 40s and 50s still stuck on Michael Jackson.
Well suck it up and deal with it. Even the Jackson fans were destined to turned into the old hags they are, eventually. They just cant deal with the realities of life - like Peter Pan Jackson. They are perversely living this guys freakish life vicariously. Or used to anyway.
Some people think that a man who spent his life in drugs, self absorption, and the pursuit of being alone with children in ways the raise the eyebrows of decent people everywhere - is something to be glamorized, idolized and worshiped.
This self-proclaimed King of pop. What a joke. An effete metrosexual with little girl voice punctuated by castratti squeals. And THAT is an image that we want the youth of America to emulate?
Sorry, some of us were raised different. We just dont get it with the idolization of freaks like this Jackson guy.
He was a self-absorbed weirdo who dressed up in tin-horn general costumes with shiny sequins to give the illusion he was some kind of official Royalty and all the little simpletons see it and instantly are fooled by the illusion.
This is the crowd who this guy caters to. Those who are easily infatuated with pop-icon celebrity status. Oooo! Shiny!
This is a big part of what is wrong with this country, this obsession with worshiping celebrities who support the agenda of the LEFT by a wide margin.
This is the exact same mentality that supports the Obama-Messiah movement. Utter worship, as a literal god. Cause Barry Sotero can read off a teleprompter? Cause Jackson could jig around and wear costumes?
THAT is the basis for worshiping as a god?
It would be laughable if not such a perverted worldview.
They are the Jesus Juice drinkers, prostrated at the feet of their Messiah, whether it be Obama the Messiah or this FREAK.
Among the testimony of children that Jackson had at his Neverland Ranch, was that Jackson gave little kids alcohol laced soft drinks that he called Jesus Juice.
The guy was simply flim-flam artist.
They cant take having their Messiah Michael the Baby Dangler, knocked down. Too bad his going to continue to be criticized for what he was.
“Ok - Michael Jackson is dead. He converted to Islam. Will he be a good muslim?”
Ummm..., did he blow himself up? That’s the only way Allah opens the door for you... “for sure” — doncha know...
WELL SAID!!!! I’m in total agreement with you!
He was hardly “broke”. He was in debt, at this point, because there was no one to tell him “no”, but when you own the rights to the Beatles catalogue and have the potential earning capacity he did, it’s not possible to be “broke”. People renting houses for $100,000 a month aren’t “broke”.
You’re a disgusting pig. Take your vomit and shove it.
I love you too.
Deb, not everyone who has an opinion that differs from yours is a troll.
Your behavior this afternoon is appalling.
Michael was just fishing for some money from Allah. He needed some new friends who approve of child molestion.
When his brother said, “My Allah be with Michael etc”, I thought HOLY SNAPS!...Michael is roasting along with Arafat and hitler...SO SAD. He just converted a few months ago I believe. He missed heaven by the skin of his teeth...Truly so SAD..:(
So what? Just because he was renting a house where the rent was $100k per month doesn't mean he was actually paying $100k per month. Jackson was notorious for being a deadbeat and it would be surprising to find that he'd suddenly become responsible in paying his bills.
You really are ridiculous. Who, exactly, is going to rent his mansion to a “notorious deadbeat”? If you’re going to jump in, make sense.
