ISLAM NEWSROOM UPDATE: Time to Tell Liam Nesson the Facts (of Islam)
Let's leave him a message at bottom of page!
But what does this mean to us? Even up to now he did not publicly come out say anything like, "Hey! I love Islam - I am a Muslim - Deal with it"
We now have confirmation from CNN that statements made months ago about him saying - "I love the Adhan. It is very beautiful in a special way". Also, "I love to hear Quran"
He's the famous movie actor Liam Neeson [Schindler's List, Star Wars, Taken, Batman Begins, Clash of the Titans, A-Team, Chronicles of Narnia] says, "Adhan (call to prayer for Islam) is very beautiful in a special way"
We were able to get more on his visits to mosques, talking with imams and even stopping an important meeting to go for salah.
Yes! Now we know, he really did accept Islam when he entered a mosque in Turkey (while filming TAKEN 2)
CNN published a crawl on the bottom of the screen this past week (February, 2015): "Liam Neeson Joined Islamic Movement"
Here's also what we had all along (source - Wikipedia):
While on movie set location - a number of reports claim eyewitnesses even saw Neeson converting to Islam (submission to God in Peace) - This came out in news media.
They say he entered a mosque in Istanbul, pronounced something in front of the imam (was it his shahadah?) and actually did the salat.
Still others say he left an important meeting in Hollywood at prayer time to do his salat.
In face, he personally continues to express affection for the adhan (Islamic call to prayers) that he got used to while filming the movie Taken 2 in Turkey.
He says, "By the 3rd week, it was like I could not live without it. It really became hypnotic and very moving for me in a very special way. Very beautiful".
NOTE: Neeson's publicist said he did not actually go to Islam [At least not yet]
Liam Neeson he loves listening to Quran & adhan. He admires Islam and converted from Catholic to Islam. - according to news reports from CNN.
~ Listen to Adhan (call to prayer) ~
But is going to be a problem for him? If anyone famous says they like anything to do with Islam or Muslims - they are going to be put on a "LIST". A very special list.
See what happened when Bill Cosby talked to Yusuf Estes saying, "Did we do it yet?" (He was saying, "Salam alaykum", Muslim's greeting of 'Peace be to you'). [see video here]
Liam Neeson's publicist had in the past rejected anything about the famous actor entering Islam or being a Muslim, in spite of clear statements Nesson has said to the contrary in the past.
Actor Liam Neeson was quoted in newsprint and articles as saying, "I love to hear the adhan (Muslim's call to prayer)" and "I'm thinking of converting to Islam". Sources claim while he was in Istanbul, Turkey recording the famous movie, "Taken" that Neeson loved hearing adhan and even said he might go to Islam.
It appears this an effort by his agent to put off any possibility that major studios might cancel contracts or stop recordings?
What ideas do you have to reassure Liam Neeson, his agent and sponsors know it would not be bad for him to go to Islam? In fact, they could see it aa a great opportunity for free publicity and a whole new market share in the Muslim world.
So post your comments and let them all see - PLEASE!

Shannon, Ireland -- Liam Neeson considering Islam, according to reporters
The Northern Ireland actor, who comes from a Catholic background, told the newspaper that the call to prayer in Istanbul drove him to distraction for the first week of filming but he then began to find it "the most beautiful, beautiful thing".
Neeson, a former altar boy in Ballymena, said: "There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim."
Actor Liam Neeson - Nominated for an Oscar, a BAFTA and three Golden Globe Awards during his career.
He has starred in a number of notable roles including Oskar Schindler in Schindler's List and Michael Collins.
Neeson was married to actress Natasha Richardson for 15 years before her death in 2009, when she suffered a severe head injury in a skiing accident at the Mont Tremblant Resort, in Quebec.
It’s not the first time Liam Neeson spoke of religion. Matter of fact, Neeson was heavily critisized for putting down claims of author C.S. Lewis - about Narnia lion, Aslan being based on Jesus.
Neeson – who voiced the character in the film adaptation – instead claimed the character 'Aslan' was based on other spiritual leaders including Mohammed (peace be upon him).
"Aslan symbolises for me... Mohammed and all the great ...prophets over the centuries," he said at the time.
"That’s who Aslan stands for as well as a mentor figure for kids – that’s what he means for me."
So, Could He Become A Muslim?
Note: Liam Neeson has confirmed his love for the adhan and admires the salat.
But we must convince him NOT to play the part of any kind of 'god' or even be in movies of pagan gods!
Write to him (here) - but don't push him, and do be patient.
We invite you to leave nice comments for him to read (now please)
& ask others to do the same, inshallah.
