Janet Jackson has secretly converted to Islam and afterwards celebrated her son’s birth by sacrificing an animal!
According to sources there is a war going on between Jackson’s family and her husband, Wissam Al Mana, because they believe he manipulated her into becoming a Muslim.
The singer, who recently gave birth to son Eissa on January 3, was photographed wearing Muslim attire in public. As soon as the baby boy was born he was baptized into the Islam religion.
“As soon as the child was born, Wissam whispered in the boy’s right ear the word, ‘Adhan,’ which inculcates into the child that Allah is the only god and Muhammad is the only messenger,” shared source close to Janet.
Afterwards, the father rubbed some fruits on the baby’s tongue – a ritual meant to make sure that the newborn inherits his parents’ best traits, especially his father’s.
“We were told that a goat or a sheep was sacrificed, which is the case with every true Muslim birth when the parents wish to please and show thanks to Allah,” explained the source.
Jackson has been married to the billionaire since 2012 and has been slowly adopting the ways of Islam.
The singer has changed in the last years – she has been dressing a lot more conservatively during her concerts and even included Islamic lyrics into her songs. Sometimes she even ended her performances by saying to the audience “Inshallah,” meaning, “If Allah wills it.”
When she got pregnant the doctors advised her to take care of herself in order “to avoid the usual problems with a high-risk pregnancy,” such as hypertension and diabetes.
Janet wanted to name her baby boy after her brother Michael, who passed away because of a drug overdose.
However, according to the source, Wissam told her “it’s up to the husband in Muslim culture to provide a Muslim name and he would not allow for a Christian name to be given, especially to a son.”
Janet’s family members are all Jehovah’s Witnesses and they were all opposed to Wissam’s decision. However, the singer took her husband’s side, starting a family war.
