Snoop Dogg Converts to Islam?


Snoop Dogg and FarrakhanMarch 2, 2009 |

Author: Adi B.


Snoop Dogg made an appearance Sunday at the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours Day convention, praising Minister Louis Farrakhan.


“When you get a speech from Minister Farrakhan it’s about a mirror, it’s about looking at yourself,” the rapper later told The Associated Press. “It’s about seeing yourself and what you can do to better the situation  … We’re doing a lot of wrongs among ourselves that require correcting.”


Snoop had given a $1,000 donation and said he will always seek the minister out. He called himself the “leader of the hip-hop community” and said it had been his first Saviours Day event. He told followers that he would share the information he gathered with other artists.


Snoop said he’s already joined in the movement, when asked by the Associated Press if he was planning to convert and become a member of the Chicago-based Nation of Islam. [smartads]


“I’m already in the Nation, that’s why I’m here,” Snoop said. “I’m an advocate for peace. I’ve been in the peace movement ever since I’ve been making music. My whole thing is not about trying to push my thing on you. It’s just about the way I live, and I live how I’m supposed to live as far as doing what’s right and representing what’s right. That’s why I was here today.”

Snoop did not elaborate when he joined the Nation, although he sat on stage behind Farrakhan during the speech, clapping and nodding. He declined to say how long he’d be in the Chicago area or if he was working on any current projects, although his last album, “Ego Trippin,'” was released last year in March of 08.


Farrakhan has long held relationships with rappers and hip-hop artists of all stature, he’s hosted and spoken at hip-hop conventions, and has been encouraging peace between rappers.  

Rapper Doug E. Fresh also attended the convention although not speaking publicly and rapper T.I. appeared via recorded video. He told followers that education is the key to success.

    in response to
    first i will start by noting the ignorant nature of your observation on islam.i now ask you based on what you posted as your personal opinion.
    what justification have you that muslims pay or force people to convert into to islam?
    its important to let you know that its non muslim organisations that continuosly confirm that islam is the fastest growing religion. and so it will continue whether you like it or not.
    if you say muslims threatens its deserters for death. then what type of weapons did they used on middle east,africa,europe,asia,and america that islam is growing at geomtric progression?
    additionally, no where in history where muslims force anybody to join the community. its absolutely voluntary as myself, no body force me to be a muslim. i personally analysed and found the absolute truth in islam.
    for the devine protection of our religion,islam, no one can ever question that because your forefathers were asked to produce the simile of even the half or less of the Quran but coul not.the challenge continues if the ‘free world’ you worship can do it they are free. but they cannot, let alone you.
    for your information, islam has already got the most precious men and women whom can never be replaced.they are gone to eternal peace would rather be proud of islam and not the other way round.
    you mentioned some Quranic verses which i am sure you are ignorant of their meaning.what ever you mean anyway, Quran is not a product of manly creation that you can play with. its Allah’s. beleive it or not. and like i said your forefathers in sturbonness, were unable to challenge it on any basis inspite their huge knowlege. Quran is free from a single contradiction. its always modern and foretold the future happenings and the past. its a total way of life. if you dont know can get a copy and examine,if you find any single outdated concept or contradiction,then you can expose.
    finally, we muslims strongly believe islam is the only peaceful true religion.and if you deny let yourself die a non muslim and we shall see what happens in the next cant bear the hell.

    Shamelessly, Muslims who use death penalty to scare fellow Muslims from converting to Christianity, take along with them huge petro-dollars to the freer Western World to convert some greedy and or troubled personalities like the cash-strapped Micheal Jackson,Snoop Dogg and hungry common \’liberals\’ alike only to turn and tell whoever listens to them that, \”It is the miracle of God that the number of Christian converts to Islam is more than the number of Muslim converts to Christianity\”.When did fear of death become a miracle even if the statistics is true. In fact, it is the other way round.

    The genuine miracle is: despite the barbaric use of death penalty to deter their people from leaving Islam, many notable and common Muslims still dare desert Islam and run away to escape the death penalty. Many, of course, get killed and that is a well known fact.

    If Muslims feel Islam has a divine protection I challenge them to let stay in Islam be voluntary like the Christians make stay in Christianity a matter of choice. And if \”Allah\” is afraid that many faithfuls will abandon Islam in an alarming proportion and so proscribes death to potential deserters of Islam, that should prove to us that their is no any miracle behind the survival of Islam other than row human force. That is why a Moslem can even bomb a crowded Mosque of other Muslim sects in his desperate move to protect what he considers as the genuine Islam.

    Every informed, educated and honest person would agree with me that a Muslim equivalent of the then Celsius Clay (now Mohammed Ali) or Dr. Maurice Buccaile etc, who convert to Christianity, can\’t stay in, say, Egypt or S/Arabia or Pakistan etc let alone move freely like do Ali and Buccaile etc in the West. So you can\’t compare what happens in the free World with what happens in the regimented World of Islam!!

    Of course, with the growing suspicion that Islamic doctrines are actually responsible for the embarrassing scientific and technological backwardness of the Muslim World, the oil-rich Arabs lure some greedy and or frustrated Western personalities Micheal Jackson, Snoop Dogg and commoners alike into Islam so that they can turn to their increasingly doubting fellow Muslims and say: \”Don\’t you see even the Westerners do convert to Islam?\” Even that one would eventually stop!

    Thank God for giving us INTERNET as we can now expose all the scientific errors, contradictions and corruptions (Alif.Lam.Mim; Kaf.Ha.A.In.Sat, Various Qira\’ats etc) that exist in the Qur\’an without getting killed by those fighting for \’Allah\’.
