Taroudant- In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, American singer Madonna said she takes a close interest in the Qur’an.
The American diva, who has “a funny relationship with religion” is now “studying the Quran, the sacred text of Islam, joining celebs like Janet Jackson, Dave Chappelle, and Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), who reportedly also practice Islam” as reported by the Huffingtonpost.
The interest of Madonna for Islam could also be due to her relationship with the Algerian Brahim Zaibat, who apparently practices Islam.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Madonna writes:
“I am building schools for girls in Islamic countries and studying the Qur’an. I think it is important to study all the holy books. As my friend Yaman always tells me, a good Muslim is a good Jew, and a good Jew is a good Christian, and so forth. I couldn’t agree more. To some people this is a very daring thought.”
Time only can say whether Madonna’s interest in Islam is a media stunt or an earnest attempt to understand Islam and strengthen her faith.
It is worth mentioning that Madonna easily surpassed singer Lady Gaga and veteran rockers Bon Jovi as the highest-paid musician in 2013, Forbes said on Tuesday.
