Famous christians

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Amongst the most famous Christians who reverted to the Truth of Al-Islam in our generation that come to mind are:

  1. Yusuf Islam, the former rock star known as Cat Stevens.
  2. Siraj Wajjaj, the present ‘Imam’ and orator of ‘Masjid-at-Taqwa’ in Brooklyn, New York, USA.
  3. Hamza Yusuf, born Mark Hanson, a scholar of Islam and the Director of ‘Zaytuna Institute’ from California, USA.
  4. Kareem Abdul Jabbar, formally known as Ferdinand Lewis; arguably the best basketball player of his generation and voted the MVP (most valuable player) of the NBA (national basketball association) USA for six years.
  5. Malcolm X, born Michael Little, the famous civil rights leader from the USA.
  6. Mohamed Ali, the famous boxer formally known as Casius Clay.
  7. Muhammad Asad  born Leopold Weiss; Statesman, Journalist, and Author from Austria.
  8. Ali Ahmed born Knud Holmboe;  Journalist and Author from Denmark.
  9. Abd al-Wahid Yahya born Rene Guénon;  Intellectual, Author and Critic from France
  10. Wilfried Hoffman, Social Scientist, Diplomat and former director of Nato from Germany.
  11. Hassen Le Gai Eaton born Charles Le Gai Eaton; former Diplomat and Author from the United Kingdom.
  12. AbdulAdheem Sanders born Peter Sanders – Photographer from the UK.
  13. Ruqiyyah Waris Maqsood, author of almost 40 books from the UK.
  14. Jeffrey Lang famous Author and Professor of Mathematics from the USA.
  15. Michael Wolfe, Author and Journalist from the USA.
  16. Abdullah al-Faruq formerly Kenneth L. Jenkins, minister and elder of the Pentecostal Church.
  17. Viacheslav Polosin former Archpriest of the Russian Orthodox Church.
  18. Martin John Mwaipopo former Lutheran Archbishop.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
