In an Instagram post he shared, the singer who was originally born in Islam which he dumped for his mother’s faith, revealed that he was lost before but he is now found.
I was lost but now I’m found, O Allah, I ask You for pardon and well-being in this life and the next. O Allah, I ask You for pardon and well-being in my religious and worldly affairs, and my family and my wealth. O Allah, veil my weaknesses and set at ease my dismay, and preserve me from the front and from behind and on my right and on my left and from above, and I take refuge with You lest I be swallowed up by the earth.
In another post, he wrote;
Old things shall pass away and new things shall come our way. May Allah (SWT) continually do new things in our lives. I pray Allah (SWT) Light every path we follow, gives us the Wisdom & Guidance to every step we take, bless every decision we make, and make us excel in all aspect of life & grants us & our family Al-Jannah Firdausi. Ameen. Jumat Kareem.
Speaking to Muslim News after the Instagram posts were shared, JJC said it was God’s design for him to embrace Islam.
“I was born a Muslim – AbdurRasheed by name. My dad, Bello is a Muslim but my mum is a Christian. Back then I used to go Islamiyah but all I remembered about it was getting beaten. They used to scare us with hellfire so, I never practised.
“It’s God’s design that I will return to Islam. I thank Allah for sparing my life. I am so happy I found Islam again because it has given me peace. It has given me direction and focus. I was truly lost but now, I am found.”
