LOS ANGELES: The family of Michael Jackson is considering a traditional Muslim burial for the pop icon who had converted to Islam months prior to

his death, says a new report.

A celebrity website reported quoting sources close to the family that Jackson’s new found will states that he will be buried in the traditions of his new faith.

“The family is considering following the Muslim burial traditions because Michael would have wanted to be laid to rest in keeping with his new-found religious beliefs. Michael’s brother Jermaine is educating the family as to the special rites,” the source said

Jackson had reportedly converted to Islam in November last year and taken the name of ‘Mikhaail’.

Meanwhile, a public viewing of the performer will take place on Friday at his fantasy themed abode California ranch, Neverland. There has been no official confirmation from Jackson’s family on the location where his body will be laid to rest.

reportedly has converted to Islam in late 2008 and adopted the name Mikaeel, which is the name of one of Allah’s angels. Now, when there is still question of where the late superstar will be laid to rest, a new report has just emerged that he will be buried in a traditional Muslim funeral.

“The family is considering following the Muslim burial traditions because they believe Michael would have wanted to be laid to rest in keeping with his new-found religious beliefs,” a source close to the family stated. The insider continued telling X17 Online, “Michael’s brother Jermaine is educating the family as to the special rites because he feels it’s important to bury his brother according to the Muslim way.”

Previously, there was rumor that Michael’s body will be embalmed instead of being buried in his Islamic faith. The speculation raised since there was no indication that his body would be buried within two days of his death as dictated by the Koran.

Latest: Muslim Funeral for Michael Jackson – https://akarimomar.wordpress.com/2009/07/04/muslim-funeral-for-michael-jackson/

Gathered from various sources around the blogsphere with mostly quoting from  http://imamjohari.wordpress.com

Today, I spoke to with Imam Siraj Wahhaj, the Amir of the Muslim Alliance in North America and one of the most prominent imams in the United States.  Imam Siraj sends his condolences to the family of Michael Jackson and well wishes to his family.imam_sirajwahaj

Yesterday, the Imam Siraj completed his last radiation treatment for prostate cancer (cancer 3X higher in African-Americans), yet expressed his eagerness to attend the janazah Muslims funeral service for Michael Jackson whenever it is held he said, “Even if I stand in the back, I want to be there”.

Someone asked me,  “Why are we making a big deal about it!”.  I say we are not making a BIG deal about it.  It is the right of a Muslim to receive condolences and we are doing that by the Prophet’s (pbuh) instruction independent of the faith of the deceased.  The burial of the dead is an obligation upon the living; it is called in Islamic terminologyfard kifiyya (collective obligation).   No one can bury himself or herself; the living must bury the dead.

Imam Visits Michael Jackson’s Family to Discuss Funeral Arrangements

from: http://imamjohari.wordpress.com/2009/06/27/imam-visits-michael-jacksons-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

It has been reported that the internet was not able to cope up with the volume of traffic after words spread about the death of the King-of-Pop Michael Jackson.

Google, Twitter, AOL, AIM, Facebook, Wikipedia and many other providers were either extremely slow or came to a halt with some reporting a five-fold traffic volume during the early hours of the breaking news. Twitter went temporarily offline. Even LA Times, which was among the first to report, was swarmed and not able to cope for a while. Many others such as BBC and CNN reported the similar clog.

It wonders if there is any other person with such an impact on web as what Michael Jackson had done just as he did with his talent to the music industry.

“How many people does it take to break the Internet? On June 25, we found out it’s just one — if that one is Michael Jackson.” CNN
