Better to nip this rumor now before it spreads even further. Already I received a few emails stating that Paris Hilton has embraced Islam and plans on opening an Islamic School in Beverly Hills!


Firstly, they are all reading this article here:


http://www.dailysquib.co.uk/entertai...-to-islam.html
A clip from the above link states:
JEDDAH – Saudi Arabia – Former American socialite, Paris Hilton has converted to Islam, her spokesman, Ian Brinkham, has revealed to CBS news.
This article is a satire piece. If you visit the above website you will find a photo-edited image of Paris donning a headscarf. However scroll to the bottom of The Daily Squib, the last line on the website.



It states:
© Copyright 2011 dailysquib.co.uk | The Daily Squib is a curious satirical publication and should therefore be taken seriously


Excuse the crass language but that’s simply a copy and paste from their website.

After a back & forth email with a certain Muslim Organization in South Africa, who insists this satire piece is true, i decided to publish this post and squash this silly rumor altogether.

Sadly, the bigger joke is on the Muslims adding in the comments of that site thinking its true.

Good post!

The moment I heard about this, I sort of suspected that something wasn't right. I hope this wouldn't turn into another "Did Michael Jackson revert to Islam?" debacle. If a famous celebrity does, in fact, embrace Islam then good for them. Personally, I think it makes no sense in glorifying it or turning it into such a hoo-ha.

Hopefully, this rumour will die down.

Why would you doubt it Muslim Woman?
Allah swt is capable of all things.

I personally would love to see Paris come to Islam - or any other celebrity/person for that matter.

May Allah swt guide her to the deen. Ameen.

Imagine the attention she'd bring.

But, yes, the article is fake - and obviously so just by reading it.

very similar to http://www.theonion.com/
"America's finest news source"!

jokes are quite sophomoric, but good for occasional laughs.

I don't understand the fixation on celebrities regarding whether or not they have reverted to Islam.

This is the first time I read about such rumor to begin with.
All what I can say is may Allah guide everyone to Islam whether they were celebrities or normal people. If they embraced Islam they will be all the same in the sight of Allah and the only thing that will help them is their deeds not their fame nor their money.

our local daily says she decided to embrace Islam after visiting holy Kaaba. As non-Muslims are not allowed to enter Kaaba , I suspected that it's a fake one.

a funny post from ummah forum

I love Paris Hilton . She always makes me :rotfl:

Once, she was asked in an interview "Do you know which is the major religion of Pakistan?"

She was like "Err....Erm...no"

The interviewer hinted "It's the most talked about religion after 9/11"

Paris was like "Oh yeah...Kabbalah"

:rofl1:

Sometimes non-english media can make mistakes and just translated everything they find on the net and publish them as news without realizing that they're just satires.

Here too in Indonesia I've read some newspapers translated and published some stories from the onion which made me chuckles.

The idea of Paris Hilton converting to Islam is hilarious XD I don't think anyone here would have believed it anyway.

I don't think it would help out Islam's image by having Paris Hilton convert so I really don't understand why some Muslims would be excited about it.

Now if it was an intelligent celebrity I would understand, but Paris Hilton?.....

I don't care even if she converts to Islam for real. If anyone converts to Islam, he/she is doing a favor on themselves not on Islam or Muslims.

As long as someone converts to please Allah, I really have no problem. I would strongly advise for any non-Muslim to thoroughly research Islam and think very hard before converting.
