    An American Millionaire Who Was Also Michael Jacksons Lawyer Becomes Muslim


    111ms - GOOD NEWS;An American Millionaire Becomes Muslim


    An American millionaire, Mark Shaffer declared his Islam in Saudi Arabia on Saturday,

    17th October 2009. Mark was at that time on a holiday in Saudi Arabia to visit

    some famous cities like Riyadh , Abha and Jeddah for 10 days.

    Mark is a well-known millionaire and also a practiced lawyer in Los Angeles ,

    specializing in cases of civil laws. The last big case he handled was

    the case of the famous American pop singer, Michael Jackson, a week before he passed away.

    A tourist guide who accompanied Mark for 10 days in Saudi Arabia ,

    Dhawi Ben Nashir told: Since he set foot for the first time in Saudi Arabia ,

    Mark already started to ask question about Islam and Solat. As soon as he arrived in Saudi,

    Mark stayed in Riyadh for two days. While in Riyadh , Mark was very interested in Islam.

    After moving to Najran, we went to Abha and Al-Ula. There,

    his fascination on Islam grew more obvious, especially

    the time when we ventured out into the desert.

    Mark was amazed to see three Saudi youths who were in our group in Al-Ula, performingsolat

    in the expanse of the very wide desert. A very fantastic panorama indeed.

    After two days in Al-Ula, we went to Al-Juf. As soon as we arrived in Al-Juf,

    Mark asked if I could get him some books on Islam. I then obtained

    some books on Islam for him. Mark read all those books. The next morning,

    he asked me to teach him how to perform solat. I then taught him how to

    pray and take wudhu (ablution). Then, he joined me and performedsolat beside me.

    After solat, Mark told me that he felt peace in his soul. On Thursday afternoon,

    we left Al-Ula heading for Jeddah. He looked very serious throughout

    the journey reading those books about Islam. On Friday morning,

    we visited the old town of Jeddah . Before the time for the Friday prayer approached,

    we went back to the hotel and I excused myself to go for the Friday prayer.

    Then, Mark told me: I would like to join you for the Friday prayer so that

    I can witness myself how the Friday prayer is like. So I answered: welcome

    We then went to a masjid which was not far from the hotel where we stayed in Jeddah.

    Since we were quite late, I and many other jamaah had to pray outside,

    as the number of jamaahwas overflowing. I could see Mark observing the jamaah,

    especially after the Friday prayer was completed,

    when everybody was shaking hands and embracing each other with radiant and happy faces.

    Mark was very impressed with what he saw.

    When we return to the hotel, Mark suddenly told me that he wanted to become a Muslim.

    So I said to him: Please have a shower first. After Mark took the shower,

    I guided him in saying the kalimah of shahadah (declaration of faith) and then

    he prayed two rakaah. Later on, Mark expressed his desire to visit the Masjidil

    Haram in Makkah and perform solat there before leaving Saudi Arabia .

    Regarding Marks visit to Masjidil Haram, Ustadz Muhammad Turkistani narrated:

    After Mark obtained his temporary certificate, we straight away departed heading for

    the noble Masjidil Haram. When he witnessed the Masjidil Haram, he face looked

    radiant and it emanated an extraordinary happiness. When we entered the Masjidil

    Haram and witnessed the Kabah for ourselves, his happiness increased. By Allah,

    I could not express that scene with words. After performing the tawaf around the noble Kabah,

    we performed the sunnah solatand went out of Masjidil Haram.

    I could see Mark very reluctantly wanting to leave Masjidil Haram.

    After Mark declared his Islamic faith, he had the chance to express his

    happiness in Al-Riyadh Newspaper saying: I could not express my feeling at

    this time but I am being reborn and my life has just started then he added:

    I am very happy. This happiness that I am feeling could not be expressed in

    words especially when I visited the Masjidil Haram and noble Kabah.

    Regarding his next step after his conversion to Islam, Mark explained:

    I will learn more about Islam,

    I will delve deeper into this religion of Allah (Islam) and come back

    to Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj.

    As to what impelled him into converting to Islam, Mark explained:

    I have already had information about Islam, but it was very limited.

    When I visited Saudi Arabia and personally witnessed the Muslims there,

    and saw how they performed the solat, I felt a very strong drive to know more about Islam.

    When I read true information about Islam, I became confident that Islam is a religion of haq (truth).


    In order to fulfill his wish, we went to the Dawah

    and Irshad office in the area of Al-Hamro, Jeddah,

    to obtain a formal proof of his conversion to Islam,

    so that he would be allowed to enter the city of Makkah and Masjidil Haram.

    Then, Mark was given a temporary certificate of his conversion to Islam.

    As a number of group members who participated in Marks visit to Saudi

    Arabia had to go back to America on Saturday afternoon, Al-Hamdulillah,

    Ustadz Muhammad Turkistani was willing to send Mark to

    the Holy Land of Makkah that same morning.
