Doherty turning to Islam in jail
The Sun

Troubled rocker Pete Doherty has reportedly turned to Islam after being imprisoned in London's Wormwood Scrubs jail.

Doherty asked for a translation of the Quran and is now 'lapping it up', reports thesun.co.uk.

One of Doherty's friends said: 'He's been reading the Quran since he went into segregation. He's got a lot of Muslim friends and they've been on at him for ages to study it. Now he's on his own and he's got time on his hands to study it.

'I'm surprised how much it has calmed him down as he was very on the edge inside. He definitely seems more chilled. He's lapping it up and really interested in it. I think it's helping him in there.'

Doherty has been having a difficult time since his 14-week sentence began for violating probation by taking drugs.

Interesting read, JazkaAllah Khayr!
May Allah swt continue to guide him and us all..Ameen

قُلۡ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُضِلُّ مَن يَشَآءُ وَيَہۡدِىٓ إِلَيۡهِ مَنۡ أَنَابَ
Say: Lo! Allah sendeth whom He will astray, and guideth unto Himself all who turn (unto Him)
[Surah Ra'ad]

Do we have a more reliable source that The Sun?

Pete Doherty could certainly do with cleaning up his act a bit!
Question is, will he stay sober??? :X

LOL
That's pretty much what somebody wrote when Michael Jackson allegedly turned to Islam a while back (I need to google what happened about him since then) ... that wouldn't have been you too, Barney??? :D

Nope, not me, but i would take that, and Pete's reversion as a definate sign of a benificent deity stepping in fo the good of his creation. :)

^ I'm still unconvinced.
If you check the sources, they all refer back the The Sun, or add the word 'reportedly' to their statement.

If there is hard evidence from a more reliable source, I would be interested to read it. Please post it here. :)

Peace

If Allah(SWT) wills, Pete Doherty will realise the high one can get from listening to his creator is better and hell of a lot cheaper then his substance abusing ways.

I dont think he's read up to the No-Booze and No -drugs surahs yet Skye.

He's a popular UK comedy character, more known for his crime and vice than singing.

The amazing thing is that you don't have to subscribe to any religion to understand the universal guidelines...
It really pains me having been a rambunctious teenager myself how many just get lost in this world of drugs/booze and all sorts of experimentation... it is one thing to go through a definat phase and another thing to make that your modus vivendi... I marvel at some of my childhood friends who seem suspended at 15.. but what further pains me, is seeing a 25 year old on the autopsy table.. I think some folks just fancy that they are invincible? go on abusing their body every which way...

I don't wish to sound preachy.. but I don't know how else to be when I see microtome blades
chiseling at some kid's skull, and then pliers grabbing whatever is left of his dura after his brains are evacuated... It is emotionally scarring and I mean that no matter what livlihood puts bread on your table.. I hope he mends his ways, whether a popular role model or not... this is just not a positive way to live..

cheers

Aye, i work with drug users and see enough lives mucked up by em.
Docherty has been trying to kick em for years, I hope he does and hopefully he is sincere in his quest for religion.
No doubt religion can be a +sitive force when taken sensitively.

If it's true, mashallah. He's getting his act together.

Amy Winehouse should follow suit. While she still has nostrils.
