Janet Jackson, American music icon and sister to legendary Pop artiste, Michael Jackson in July was reported to be quitting the entertainment industry because of her new religion, ‘Islam.’

The American singer, who is married to Quatari Muslim Billionaire Wissam Al Mana, disclosed that she almost committed suicide because of the restrictions and burden her new life and religion brought upon her, saying it was not an easy transformation.

According to MTV News, she revealed that she has been deprived of almost everything in life, as she cannot listen to music, drive a car, wear designer clothes only the “Black Abaya” and cannot even move outside her residential home, in Doha as she is always surrounded by heavily armed security men.

Janet further added that, her new song feat J.Cole “No Sleep” says it all from her marriage, to the difficulties involved in adapting to her new life, the stress involved in being a Muslim wife and the regrets she had due to the choices she made.

  1. Islam never chose a particular colour of dress or certain special dress for woman….The main criteria is that any cloth u put on should cover ur nudity and never in any way expose ur nakedness and again in the issue of driving Islam is out of dat may be it is her husband decision or choice…..

  2. islam never choose the colour of cloth.fr one to wear nor stops u from using life luxuries if u have d means.
    wat islam does nt like is using wat u have in an extravagant way.

  3. Islam is not of worldly pleasure. It is a religion of forsaking the pleasure of this material world for an everlasting joy and permanent happiness in the next spiritual world and I’m sure Janet knows this hence her choice of conversion to Islam. I most sincerely join the teaming brothers and sisters in Islam in congratulating her for making this spiritual wise decision.

  4. madam janet the bible says come unto me all ye that are heavy laiden and I’ll give u rest. but ever since u joined this religion its one complaint on the order. na by force, or na bcos of the money? I command u to come out now

  5. My Dear I don’t think u married cos of love.If it real love that took u there there is no way u complain of ur lovers religion since u knew that is where he belong b4 u decided to join him. Real Love will never say wat u are saying.

  6. All she said is simply true, in any core Muslim nation, women don’t have right, everything is too strict most especially to women, so pple are not too free,
    Many of us may not know becos Nigeria is a secular state and because there are Christians and we are a bit freeer bt in Arab n Muslim nation…you can’t drink water freely n keep the cup.

  7. Aunty Janet why are you telling us? , it’s a simple matter. As you carry yourself enter still carry yourself come out

  8. Islam is Islam. Either you submit to Allah or you are rebellious. Allah didn’t drop no ”half Quran” no. ” half law” . Islam enjoined it followers to do as chooses if they have no shame. But observation of good deeds and conduct is an act of worship
