A Better Place

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Mikaeel Jackson left us.

I am tearing as I heard the news. I’ve always had a soft spot for him. I never found him weird, never called him Wacko Jacko, I just always thought he was a really sweet person being attacked by the media.

I teared when I heard about his reversion to Islam. And right now I’m tearing thinking again about it. He said his shahadah pretty recently, which means all the sins that he may have done before were all gone. MasyaAllah.. And how much sin could he possibly have made after making shahada? Not much right? I mean, considering how a sin is considered a sin only if you knew it was a sin. For a new muallaf like him, he was probably still learning and a lot of things would not be counted against him.

And what about us? What if we were to die now? Mikaeel Jackson would surpass us in good deeds while we surpass him in evil deeds. :(

MasyaAllah.. May his grave be illuminated with light. May he get the peace and rest he so rightly deserves, something he never got while he was here in this wretched dunya.

And he passed on on a Thursday, and in Allah’s month of Rajab. :)) Inna lillah wa inna ilayhi raji’un.

Al-Fatiha for Mikaeel Jackson.

    ur posts always make me cryy~!

    i keep thinking about the reversion too…(and the passing in Rajab)…i think being in his position, it must be a lot harder to stay clean.. i suppose Allah must really love him to wants to save him from the world..subhanallah..

    sm: Na’am… I was thinking of how much Allah loves him too. :.) I’m really positive he’s in a better place now.

    salam.. there has been such a long time since i dropped here.

    is it true he turned back to Islam?
    pernah dengar juge.. tapi takde pun dalam media cakap al-fatihah ke.. atau cakap yang dia tu Islam.. so saya konpius.

    kalau dia Islam, al-fatihah. dan dgn cara ni, satu dunia akan doakan dia:)

    Hope he was born Michael but died Mikaeel.

    And he was taken up before his scheduled concerts in July.

    Guess God wanted to save him from that too.

    ah yes…i loved him too since a little girl..I saw that his demeanour almost matched the prophet pbuh!
    he was so soft spoken…even tho the media attacked him and reporters shove accusations into his face during interviews..he still spoke to kindly to them.
    and I heard that every city and country he went he visited terminally ill children and showered them with many gifts.
    His heart had mercy and so much love for kids!
    And according to his closed ones.. he was a really lonely one..must be his only true Friend was and is the AlMighty.And so many of his songs were moved by the humanity and love present in his heart.. He was known to be ‘child like and innocent and never thought ill of anyone…he was so straight or siddiq a person that the people really made use of him…
    Sounds to me…he definitely has a purer heart than mine and so many of us…the lesson we can derive from him..is that ultimately what leads anyone to the Truth is really a pure heart….
    Indeed the pure ones wld be the ones stepped on all over by the bad and also the good..what an example for us muslims
