Having been born on 25th December, he was named Emmanuel, but after a lifetime quest for the truth of the Almighty and comparing between the available faiths, islam passed the test and he has joined the ranks of other Ugandan and international celebrities who have embraced Islam over the years and among them is Mike Tyson,Muhammad Ali,Micheal Jackson,Basta Rymes,Ice Cube,Loon, Frank Rebery, the list is endless.
Unlike Jose Chameleon, Omulangira Suuna now Abdulshakur,has vowed to die a Muslim mentioning how Islam is bigger than everything including his life,soul and wife. Luckily, his wife is a Muslim and she has played a lot in helping him discover the truth which he has admired all his life having lived and worked with many of his Muslim friends.
Now what all Muslims are asking is:
WHAT NEXT FOR OS SUUNA NOW ? IS HE GOING TO LEAVE SINGING?
This is not the first priority or obligation for any new Muslim. His task,obligation and duty is to study Islam. As a new Muslim, he is not forced to dump his singing proffesion without first learning why he should. This will take him time since he is a new born in Islam. We should not feed him with cassave yet his stage is breast milk.
All Islamic scholars teach us that a convert’s first duty is to study and learn, if his livelihood is a haram one in which he has invested his money, he should not dump it immediately thereby causing him financial loss, he should run it to a stage where he can harvest his money at the best profits.
Islam should not be a reason for any financial loss to him but a benefit. Before one continues to ask about singing, We Muslims who have listened to hundreds of Khutubas still enjoy Music,listen to it and even praise Muslim Singers,so we should correct our errors before we peep into other people errors
