Michael Jackson... Gone too soon.

He is gone. This is it.

Once again, I felt shattered. It does not matter that I dont know him personally but what he have done through his music; making an impact through millions of people who have listened and watched him.

I was only 4 when I first heard Thriller, and maybe 5 when I watched all his music videos and the unforgettable American Music Award. I discovered rhyming words from his songs.

Rumours were going around that he had embraced Islam in November 2008 - 7 months ago. Whether it is (or not), I hope he would Rest in Peace and be Rewarded. I recalled a passage from the Quran...

Lo! those who believe (in that which is revealed unto thee, Muhammad), and those who are Jews, and Christians, and Sabaeans whoever believeth in Allah and the Last Day and doeth right surely their reward is with their Lord, and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve. (Al-Baqarah - ayat 16)

For all you know, he will be Rewarded for Healing the World. InsyaAllah. Thank you, Michael Jackson.
