Simon Cowell to convert to Islam to marry girlfriend?

Mezhgan Hussainy's family wants music mogul Simon Cowell to convert to Islam before he marries her, says a report.

The 'American Idol' judge had proposed to Hussainy last week.

'They're very westernised, but no one in their family has ever married a non-Muslim - and they're not willing for their youngest daughter to become the first,' digitalspy.co.uk quoted a source as saying about Hussainy's parents Mary and Sayed.

Hussainy's sister-in-law Erlene Garcia was also asked to convert before marrying her brother Wahid.

According to Hussainy's friend, 'Mezhgan is very reluctant about asking Simon to convert...and she knows how controversial it will be.'

'Simon might be a big deal in the UK, but there are other people in the Afghan community in Los Angeles who her parents will be more afraid of offending. It would bring shame on their family and community if Simon did not respect their beliefs,' the friend added.

He can respect their beliefs without kow-towing to them. Let's see if he really thinks with the brain between his ears or the brain down there?

This will not happen. His Afghan girlfriend is secular Muslim

Simon Cowell is half Jewish. He will never convert to Islam

Boy, in that picture she doesn’t look all that great. If he converts he’ll be sorry.

Why does it matter to them? She’s obviously not practicing muhammadan, so who cares? She doesn’t dress like she is supposed to and she’s fornicating with an infidel.

I guess if Simon didn’t know about her family’s wish (as the article implies), he does now.

Rahm Emanuel would do it, so why not Simon Cowell?

Simon Cowell will not dishonor his Jewish father by converting. I have no problem with him marrying this lovely modern secular Muslim woman but if conversion is a must he should call the whole thing off.——>>>

WIKIPEDIA

Early life
Cowell was born in Brighton, East Sussex, England and brought up in Elstree, Hertfordshire.[1] His father, Eric Philip Cowell, was an estate agent developer and music industry executive, and his mother, Julie Brett (née Josie Dalglish), is a former ballet dancer and socialite.[2] Cowell’s paternal grandparents, Joseph Cowell and Esther Malinsky, were English Jews,[3]

I do not put my face on the ground and ass in the air for no one. I would keep banging her out of wedlock if I had to or I would dump her but under no circumstances would I be forced to convert.

Eventually mass conversions will begin both here and in Europe. All it will take is one Oprah like figure and 90% of the West will convert.

Jesus said’ I am the way the truth and the life noone comes to the father except through me’ That about sums up all religions as being false. You can only got to jesus’s heaven through him.

If she were blond, she’d look EXACTLY like my college roommate...whose last name was as Irish as they get. The similarity is uncanny.

I’m surprised that her family would allow her to marry a man who’s half-Jewish. I would think that would be the bigger insult to them.

Some writers make you read very carefully so as not to misconstrue what they're saying. For instance, it never occurs to this writer that this sentence might be misunderstood.

Depends on if the prayer call cowbell hits a sour note or not.
