FORMER BAD BOY RAPPER LOON CONVERTS TO ISLAM


Amir Junaid Muhadith (born Chauncey Lamont Hawkins, June 20, 1975) better known by his stage name Loon, formerly an African-American rapper who was part of P. Diddy's Bad Boy Records. Amir (Loon) accepted Islam in Dec. 2008 whilst on tour in Dubai, UAE. His inspiring story of rising up from the ghettos of Harlem, NY to street-hustling and later making it in to the rap game and eventually realising the truth of Islam and becoming Muslim, is quite a story. Amir never attained true personal fulfilment despite enjoying the pinnacle of material life (wealth, success and fame), no matter how hard he strove, he couldn’t attain that inner peace that can only be realised by submitting to one’s Lord, living for the hereafter and not the present life, the complete contentment of believing in, worshipping and supplicating to the Lord of the worlds, practising the beautiful religion of Islam.

He "accepted" islam? Did he say a sinner's prayer? Was there an altar call? What happens if/when he doesn't find fulfillment in islam?

I ask these things tongue-in-cheek because Christianity has been playing with a seeker-sensitive model the last 20 years or so, and it usually involves the same. It seems as if the same sort of nonsense has started to invade islam, too. There are examples of islamic 'altar calls" on youtube.

I suspect that the seeker sensitive model has been operative for quite bit more than just the last 20 years for both Christianity and Islam.

Lemmy Kilmister is the one true god. Submit to him and you shall gain everlasting fulfillment. You will find complete contentment of believing in, worshipping and supplicating to the Lord Lemmy Kilmister, practicing the beautiful religion of Rock 'n' Roll. All other paths lead to heart ache and despair.

Funny thing is he can still put out violent, misogynist lyrics and be a good Muslim at the same time.

And he probably will. Think about how many celebrities have converted to islam and their lives appear to remain the same.

Mike Tyson supposedly converted in prison, didn't he? Has it affected his life?
