|Madonna and Brahim Zaibat, who is supposed to have influenced her|
US pop star Madonna has revealed that she is studying the Holy Qur’an these days as she works to build girls’ schools in Islamic countries.
“I am building schools for girls in Islamic countries and studying the Holy Qur’an,” Madonna the US pop icon said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Agence France Presse (AFP) reported on Sunday, October 6.
“I think it is important to study all the holy books,” she added.
The pop star added that she agrees with what one of her friends tell her, that a good Muslim is a good Jew, a good Jew is a good Christian, and so forth.
Pop star Madonna has been dubbed the “Material Girl” in the 1980s.
Although the 55-year-old star has retrospectively lamented that moniker, it was, and still is a reflection of the collective societal mind with reference to materialism.
Speculations over the singer’s interest in Islam have sparked in recent years after the star began dating Brahim Zaibat, a Muslim of Algerian descent. Last year, she was pictured in Turkey with Zaibat as she wore a headscarf to visit a mosque in Turkey, according to news reports.
Recently, Madonna sparked controversy after posting a picture on Facebook from a photo shoot in which she wore what looked like a chainmail niqab.
The picture was accompanied by the words: “The Revolution of Love is on…Inshallah [Arabic for 'God willing'].”
The Qur’an is a revelation from God, the creator of the worlds, so He is the original author. The Noble Qur’an consists of 114 Surah (chapters) of varying lengths.
There is only one Qur’an which is in Arabic and many translations of the Qur’an in several languages. There could be multiple translations by different authors in the same language such as English.
May Allah guide her to Islam as it will help in spreading the true message of Allah to her millions of fans across the world.
