Eight Popular Famous Persons You Didn’t Know Were Muslims

 There are hundreds of different religions around the world. People on this planet are free to practice any religion they want, and it's fine if they switch religions and follow a different god or ethereal concept.

Eight famous people you didn't know were Muslims.

1. Mahershala Ali

In 2000, the well-known Hollywood actor made the decision to become Muslim. Ali was brought up by Mahershala's clergywoman mother in the Christian faith, but when he was old enough to make a deliberate choice, he decided to convert to Islam. Although the man's name was changed from Gilmore to Ali, his bond with his mother remained the same. She respects her son's choice, which Mahershala deeply values.

2. Dave Chappelle

Many people, including famous persons, who were already fully grown adults, converted to Islam. One of these famous people is the well-known stand-up comedian Dave Schappell, who made the decision to serve Allah in 1998 and has never looked back. Dave claims that the teachings of this religion are so wise that it often seems like a lifetime is not enough to study and fully comprehend them.

3. Omar Sharif

Omar Sharif, a well-known actor, was born into a Lebanese Catholic household and might have continued to practice his religion for the rest of his life if it weren't for love. The actor converted to Islam in order to marry the Egyptian actress Faten Hamam after falling in love with her. His faith in Allah persisted until his passing even though their 19-year marriage ended in divorce.

4. Faran Tahir

After appearing in Iron Man, this American actor with Pakistani ancestry rose to fame, although fans had already admired him in shows like The West Wing and 24. Additionally, a lot of viewers still recall Isaac, the Muslim laboratory assistant from Grey's Anatomy. Naturally, Faran practices Islam in real life in addition to portraying Muslim roles in movies.

5. Shohreh Aghdashloo

The projects House of Sand and Fog, 24, and the Expanse are primarily responsible for introducing viewers to Shohreh.The actress was raised in an Islamic family and is of American and Iranian descent.We believe Aghdashloo when she says that she cannot imagine practicing any other religion.

6. Akon

Would you believe someone who claimed that R&B star Akon is Muslim?Because that is the truth, you ought to.Akon, whose full name is Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, was born in St. Louis to a Muslim family.The musician once made the observation that music cannot be prohibited because even prayers in Islam have a melody.

7. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is known to NBA fans, but not everyone is aware that he was raised Roman Catholic and converted to Islam at the age of 24, even changing his name.This step was necessary for Kareem to demonstrate to others what it's like to be a Muslim.He was just being thoughtful and considerate of the religions of others, not attempting to convert anyone.

8. Shaquille O’Neal

Shaquille O'Neal is probably one of the most successful and well-known NBA players.He shot basketball for the Lakers, Orlando Magic, and Miami Heat over a 19-year period.Shaq was a fifteen-time All-Star throughout his entire career!The NBA star claimed in 2010 that "another Muslim brother, Hakeem Olajuwon" was the greatest center player of all time and that he was planning a trip to Turkey.Naturally, this indicates that Shaq is, or at least practiced Islam at the time.
