|?Paris Hilton - Hijab pic?|
OK, it appears there is a picture of Paris Hilton wearing the Hijab (head covering) and rumours are abound that she has converted to Islam. There is no statement from Miss Hilton but London Muslim squashes the entire hullabaloo:
For those thousands of you who are somehow finding your way to this blog to establish if Paris Hilton has reverted to Islam I can assure or perhaps reassure you she has not.
The rumour online appears to have spread rapidly and as Churchill mentioned a lie travels around a world before the truth gets it's pants on which was said before the Internet.
Muslims and non-Muslims should wait for confirmation from the individual concerned rather than fuelling rumours of celebrities converting to Islam. I recall there were similar scenarios over Ronnie O’Sullivan (snooker player) and Will Smith (Hollywood actor).
So wait for Miss Hilton to confirm/deny the rumours rather than believing them as the interent is awash with hoaxes, misinformation and rumour.
A word on Paris Hilton’s Hijab picture
I don’t know whether the picture is genuine or a photo-shop but it may help “promote” the hijab amongst those who are thinking or rethinking the Hijab.
The picture of Paris Hilton in Hijab seems to be a certain photoshop. LM reiterates Paris Hilton has not become a Muslim, though there are no comments from Miss Hilton:
Can LM for the last occasion try and make clear that Ms Hilton is not a Muslim, she has not reverted to Islam, does not wear a Hijab, her new name is not "Tahira" and she will not be opening a new Islamic school in Hollywood. However, should anyone out there be in a position to get a statement from her PR guys I'd be extremely grateful.
