Is That You Loon?


So my former crush Loon has taken up the Islamic religion. And he did an interview with Al Jazeera television talking about his crossover from Bad Boy rapper to Islam. His new name is Amir Muhadith and he's barely even recognizable. Apparently he just finished a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia. But um, didn't I hear he was at Diddy's white party this weekend? Just asking...

I just hope people can find the "TRUTH". The truth that will matter at the long run, that when it's time, you can stand in front of God of the Bible, and it will not be too late or regret anything.

Kekomo1980: Um…yeah it is.

Kekomo1980: Um…yeah it is. Just like in Christianity there are various denominations (Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, Protestant, and so on. The same goes for Islam, there is no one way, and culture is also pivital (sp). I don’t need anyond to tell me who I am or to tell me that the Nation of Islam is Islam to answer your question. I know exactly who I am. I’ve been living it and living by the Holy Quran my whole life. You need to re-educate yourself. Read up. May Allah/God Bless You. </blockquot You seem to be confused! you are not following the way of Allah and his messanger and slave Muhammad(may peace and blessings be upon him). If you truely are a follower you would have not added to the already perfected religion. Why do you think Malcom X exposed your leader! because he wasn't following the true ways of islam. Yes christainty does have many different sectors, but islam makes it very clear that you only follow the Qu'ran, not some special muslim based relgion founded in 1930! ideal worship is a sin!

Kekomo, the nation of Islam has been 'made' a part of the Islam by man. Years ago when it was founded, they nitpicked from the true Islam and added their own flavor to it. Maybe now most of those followers, follow the true Islam and just keep the name 'Nation of Islam' but in reality there should be no subs of the Islam. You believe in God and that Prophet Muhammad (saw) is His Messenger and you believe in the Book the Quran. That is it. All these people adding and subtracting and adjusting the religion for their own likings are wrongly doing so. Islam is not complicated and should not be unreinventable under any other name. Masha Allah to Loon, may he keep following the right path. -A

you are absolutely

you are absolutely correct: Music Mogul: I’m appalled at the ignorance in this post and its COMMENTS!1. Islam is a religion, much like and Judaism, which follows prophets like Jesus and Moses. Would you describe Christianity as a culture??2. Al Jazeera is a news network, much like ABC. You’re a journalist. You have the obligation to at least sound like you know what you’re talking about….Would you call NBC a Christian network, because it broadcasts to the predominantly Christian West?? 3. With the immeasurable amount of information available on the net, there is no excuse for the errors in this post! LOL4. Knowledge is power. If only we used as much energy on enlightening ourselves, as we do following celebrities who could give a flip about us…we’d be a more powerful generation, and truly Young Black and Fabulous! wow, you just never now how or when god (allah) guides a person to islam. fascinating. much luck to a brother tryna get his life right with god before he meets his lord. and i agree with some of you out there who put his conversion in line with those of mase and others. it is really strange what happens to people after they are involved with diddy. ive never really cared for him. to me, it always seemed that he is bipolar or something with his personality swinging from extremes at any moment. and the fact that he sires children left and right without marrying na'an one of the women also is highly suspect. but anyways, im glad to see people commenting on something that is actually relevant to the real world. and as far as never reading anything you don't agree with - it's not a good look. especially for black people. that's a good way to stay deaf, dumb, and blind. why, if you didn't read what you didn't already agree with (i.e. just the bible?) then i guess you wouldn't know that many christians and jews (like Waraqa and Syrian monks for example) foretold the coming of prophet muhammed and recognized the seal of prophecy when he came. if you didn't read, then you wouldn't know that the virgin mary is the most revered woman in islam, the most mentioned in the Qu'ran, and considered to be one of the "mothers of the believers." i guess if you don't read what you don't already believe in you wouldn't know that muhammed carried out the traditions of abraham that were still stemming from monotheism ( the belief in only one god deserving of worship alone ). and maybe you wouldn't know that the first words spoken to muhammed actually was through the angel Gabriel: "*READ* IN THE NAME OF YOUR LORD!" and that the prophet (peace and blessings be on him) commanded us to "seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave" so you see, ignorance is NOT an acceptable option for anyone with the will to do otherwise. people die from a lack of knowledge. we should all strive to be better and more knowledgeable than we were yesterday. "If what you seek is truth, there is one thing you must have above all else: An unremitting readiness to admit you may be wrong." -- Anthony de Mello, Jesuit Priest peace

hot_mama: why would someone

hot_mama: why would someone read a book about something they don’t believe in! also, why are you upset? i personally don’t care what he’s converted too. that’s his life not mine! So much ignorance. You read to learn more, to become exposed to more, and to appreciate and respect other ways of life. In other words, to be less of a dumbass. In school, we read about the holocaust without supporting genocide. Or a better anology, one you'll actually understand, you read vidoe vixen without being a whore. This site is increasingly becoming harder to tolerate. How does Loon's new religion forbid him from attending a party? Where there not christians in attendance?

Dumbass people like you are the ones that stay close-minded & ignorant. No one is asking you to convert, Islam doenst need you, but know what is going on in the world & within history.

After reading this, It is

After reading this, It is clear to me that many people are still extremely ignorant.What I'm saying is clearly not foreign but let me emphasize that "respect is a two way street." Some comments were so disrespectful,and religion is such a sensitive issue whether we like it or not.No one likes an outsider passing judgement on their religion.And when an outsider passes judgement, it better be an educated opinion.Whether or not Loon converted to Islam or Buddhism etc is not something to pass judgement on.Certain comments implying that diddy has a negative impact on people, and hence loon converted to islam,also implies that islam is a negative religion. Stop being so judgemental,disrespectful and self-righteous. P:s:Even if he is muslim, I think he still has a right to go to Diddy's party.What does religion got to do with one going to a party??

this post is weird...like you've never meet or heard islam referred to in life "So my former crush Loon has taken up the Islamic culture." it wouldn't be the Islamic culture, you could just say he converted to Islam which is first and foremost a religion, not a culture "And he did an interview with Islamic television talking about his crossover from Bad Boy rapper to Islam." Al-Jazeera is an Arab news station, not "Islamic television"

Next year you can ask Cassie the reformed Nun as she with the “New Heathens Sister Act Choir mess-iah” Yall are crazy I'm laughing so hard my head hurts. I'm glad Natasha had that video are there I forgot how cute he is under all that new look. I would still suck his toes he is so fine.

If you are serious about your

If you are serious about your rap or singing career, don't get involved with Diddy. Biggy Smalls is now dead, Mase is now a pastor, Loon is a Muslim, Shyne and Lil Kim both went to prison and Cassie had a nervous breakdown and shaved one side of her head. The handwritting is on the wall people. Diddy has a very negative affect on people.

Kekomo1980: Thank you…The Nation of Islam IS considered part of Islam. It doesn’t teach racism, it teaches self love first, as many African Americans are lost and have no love for self. I’ve been in the Nation my whole life and have never been taught racism (it’s only the ignorant that believe all that the media says about the Nation). I have friends of all colors, religions and lifestyles. The nation is islam is not part of islam. I don't know who told you that, but that is not true.

I don't knock anybody's belief's, we should all be curious. It is a scientific fact that black people have been on the planet for MILLIONS of years and everyone else descended from us. Africa is the only place in the world where they have found human remains that are MILLIONS of years old. Why did Christianity only come along a couple thousand years ago after white people evolved? I wish Loon all the best on his spiritual journey.

I'm Baptist also and have no problems with my religion but that doesn't stop me from doing a little reading up on other religions. I became interested in a man who is Muslim and I wanted to read up on it and get a better understanding of it and not be ignorant to what it really consists of. Reading about a religion and seeking knowledge does not mean u aren't comfortable with your own.

sigh, smdh: ummmm “Hey There” I applaud your enthusiasm and but I’ve been a muslim my entire life and this: “Alhamdulillah! and loon is not part of the Nation of Islam(which is not considered part of Islam!) ” is completely incorrect. The Nation of Islam follows all of the beliefs in accordance with Islam. Because they do not practice the “CULTURAL” aspect of other sects of Islam does NOT mean that they are not muslim. Nor does it mean that they are not accepted in the muslim world. Ask the thousands upon thousands of muslims who to hear, greet and bond with Minister Farrakhan whenever he comes to their country. You are only as part of the problem by promoting hate and discord WITHIN one religion. that is saddening. Thank you...The Nation of Islam IS considered part of Islam. It doesn't teach racism, it teaches self love first, as many African Americans are lost and have no love for self.

Having belief in something is a great thing and seeking knowledge in different faiths is also a great thing. Knowledge is wisdom people, you can practise whatever faith you want, but do not think that you do not need to learn about other faiths too.

Here is why I do not believe that the Nation of Islam is part of ISLAM. 1.Nation of Islam" does not adhere to the core tenets of Islamic theology. 2. There is only ONE GOD AND THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD(peace and blessing be upon him) WAS THE LAST. THERE IS NO LOUIS FARRAKHAN,ELIJAH MUHAMMAD, or W. FORD MUHAMMAD. There is no PRophet after MUHAMMAD(peace and blessings be upon him). No picutes or idol worship! 3. Racist ideology ( There is racism in all sects of religion) Seperating whites from blacks! I still hear black muslims from all over calling whites all types of names. 4. We do however have this in common! WE BELIEVE In the One God whose proper Name is Allah. WE BELIEVE in the Holy Qur'an and in the Scriptures of all the Prophets of God. WE BELIEVE in Allah's Prophets and the Scriptures they brought to the people. WE BELIEVE our women should be respected and protected as the women of other nationalities are respected and protected. My lifestyle is strictly based on the Qur'an. Not upon a religion that was tampered with by Master W. Fard Muhammad in the 1930's. In the end, Allah KNOWS BEST!

Regardless of what religion anyone claims..Islam is the truth and the light. Many of different faiths will go Heaven as well as Hell. Loon is focusing on receiving his reward in his right hand. Woe to those that are receivers via their left hand. Please know this...what ever your faith, one thing remains consistent..that the devil(Iblis) is a LIAR, and always will be!!!

Alhamdulillah! and loon is

Alhamdulillah! and loon is not part of the Nation of Islam(which is not considered part of Islam!) he is a sunnai,and They accept Qur'anic Law, the "orthodox" foundations of Qur'an and Hadith and the Shari'a. I have been muslim for two years and very proud to say that I believe in one GOD! and one GOD only! there shall be no other partners! People fear what they do not understand in this country, and Islam is one of them. All people talk about is the is jihad, but they don't have a true understanding of it. They just know it's a holy war! and that's about it. Please study a religion before you go by what your government and media tells you. Islam changed my life, it made me relaize how self centered I was. I had forgotten about ALLAH like so many people in this society. Allah knows best, and wish Loon ALLAH's favor!
Hey there's picture

Just because you don't

Just because you don't believe in something doesn't mean you can't read a book about it. It's called education. We should have knowlege about a multitude of things, not just the things we believe in. And Natasha, just because he is a Muslim doesn't mean that he can't go to a party (even Diddy's White Party).
