"Having embraced Islam, I felt as if I were born again. I found in Islam the answers to those queries which I had failed to find in Christianity."

"For the larger interest of humanity, Islamic society presents the safest place on this planet."

 "I think Muslims have become the new Negroes in America. They are being mistreated at airports, by the Immigration - everywhere. Islam is a religion of peace. They are wrong."



Jermaine Jackson Quotes about his faith, God and Islam

“Everything else after Islam, comes second. My allegiance to Allah and to my beliefs come first.
That’s what keeps me going. That’s what makes me the person that I am.
I believe that every religion is pure, and my allegiance and my relationship with God,
with Allah, and that’s what is most important. I will find the time, wherever I go,
wherever I travel with my Koran, I do my fast and I do my ties.”

but I do my fast, I do read my Kuran, I pray as much as I can and I'm very happy."

"I love trying to continue on Michael's message's and the family's legacy and doing the right thing,
touching people and helping people at the same time.
To be star is nothing. To be a great person is better.
A great human being, because s star can fall,
but a good human being can rise all the time, all the time. "
