O.J. Simpson is converting to Islam. He was charged in 1994 with nearly decapitating his ex-wife.

It is not hard to imagine why a religion that promises to forgive all previous sins upon conversion would be attractive to someone sitting in a prison cell with no hope for release any time in the foreseeable future. And perhaps that is why former football great but convicted felon O.J. Simpson is converting to Islam.

Simpson has been imprisoned in Nevada for the past six years. He’s there because he was convicted of armed robbery of a Las Vegas hotel and casino during which sports memorabilia was taken from the Palace Station hotel. He received a 33-year sentence for the robbery and a kidnapping conviction.

The 67-year-old former darling of the sports and entertainment worlds lived a glamorous California life as a sportscaster and all-purpose celebrity. That ended abruptly when his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, were found stabbed to death in 1994. Although acquitted of the murder charges by dint of an incredible stable of legal talent, a many Americans believed Simpson was guilty of the two murders.

Just two years after his 1995 acquittals, Simpson was slapped with a multi-million dollar civil judgment for his ex-wife’s and Goldman’s wrongful deaths.

Simpson never recovered from a world that turned against him, and after his efforts to obtain a new trial on his armed robbery convictions were rebuffed, he has apparently decided to cope with many years behind bars by becoming a Muslim.

On a day in which an Islamist terrorist group again beheaded a western journalist, the conversion to Islam by someone who was charged with the murder of his ex-wife – who was nearly decapitated – is a gruesome coincidence.

  1. He was an ass…he is still an ass. He will always be a very stupid narcissistic waste of a life. He threw his life away with two completely unnecessary murders. I have no respect for him or for this desperate attempt to run away from all of his guilt. Notice, he went to a place where all his guilt is forgiven. What a coward…if I were Muslim, I would not welcome this jerk to my religion. He doesn’t really mean it! He hasn’t an ounce of sincerity in his decaying body. Soon, it will be as diseased as his mind is now.

  2. 1 Corinthians 15:51-53 WEB

    Behold, I tell you a mystery. We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed. For this perishable body must become imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.

  6. Pslam 48 says. ‘ if we have forgotten the name of our God and have stretch forth our hands to strange gods , God will search this out’. The Word of God stands forever. N this criminal will face God Almighty’s judgement before the great white throne..

  7. Qur’an (4:34) – “Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.”

    Qur’an (38:44) – “And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath…” Allah telling to beat his wife.

    and in the Hadith:

    Bukhari (72:715) – A woman came to Muhammad and begged her to stop her husband from beating her. Her skin was bruised so badly that she it is described as being “greener” than the green veil she was wearing. Muhammad did not admonish her husband, but instead ordered her to return to him and submit to his sexual desires.

    Bukhari (72:715) – “Aisha said, ‘I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women'” This is Muhammad’s own wife complaining of the abuse that the women of her religions suffer relative to other women.

    Muslim (4:2127) – Muhammad struck his favorite wife, Aisha, in the chest one evening when she left the house without his permission. Aisha narrates, “He struck me on the chest which caused me pain.”

    Muslim (9:3506) – Muhammad’s father-in-laws (Abu Bakr and Umar) amused him by slapping his wives (Aisha and Hafsa) for annoying him. According to the Hadith, the prophet of Islam laughed upon hearing this.

    Abu Dawud (2141) – “Iyas bin ‘Abd Allah bin Abi Dhubab reported the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do not beat Allah’s handmaidens, but when ‘Umar came to the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) and said: Women have become emboldened towards their husbands, he (the Prophet) gave permission to beat them.” At first, Muhammad forbade men from beating their wives, but he rescinded this once it was reported that women were becoming emboldened toward their husbands. Beatings are sometimes necessary to keep women in their place.

    Abu Dawud (2142) – “The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife.”

    Abu Dawud (2126) – “A man from the Ansar called Basrah said: ‘I married a virgin woman in her veil. When I entered upon her, I found her pregnant. (I mentioned this to the Prophet).’ The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: ‘She will get the dower, for you made her vagina lawful for you. The child will be your slave. When she has begotten (a child), flog her'” A Muslim man thinks his is getting a virgin, then finds out she is pregnant. Muhammad tells him to treat the woman as a sex slave and then flog her after she has delivered the child.

    Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 969 – Requires that a married woman be “put in a separate room and beaten lightly” if she “act in a sexual manner toward others.” According to the Hadith, this can be for an offense as petty as merely being alone with a man to whom she is not related.

    Kash-shaf (the revealer) of al-Zamkhshari (Vol. 1, p. 525) – [Muhammad said] “Hang up your scourge where your wife can see it”

  8. Converting from what to Islam -certainly not from Christianity? Conversion to Islam involves merely assenting to the basic tenets of that faith system. Christianity in truth, involves a heart change and is spiritual – not just saying “I am a Christian.” So he hasn’t “gone out from among us” because he was never ‘in’ the first place. Signed -KH a avid supporter of Israel.

  9. Thats the beauty of Islam <3
    Not everyone is given a right path from Allah indeed but whom He wants to.
    Others are just ignorant.
    Here those who are blaming Islam as a terrorist religion seems senseless not thinking on a fact why this person converted to Islam. May Allah guide you àll to the right path 🙂

  10. Saying that he accepted Islam because of the beheading is stupid.. And this is fact that all the previous sins are forgiven by Allah.. even if he suffers in this world, if he sincerely repents, he will be forgiven by Allah, If Allah wills.

    Whats wrong in this? People change.. non Muslim haters make an issue out of everything.. And then blame us for spreading hatred & spoiling peace.. Hypocrisy…

  11. It’s a wonder why it took him so long to convert! There is so much on the net about islamics hating blacks. And yet, the blacks, are (seemingly) unaware and keep converting by the 100’s.

  12. Who else would have him? They (Islamists) need people like him. After all the Islamists love beheading people and he likes stabbing people. A nearly perfect fit. The perfect place to convert to Islam is in Jail where most of the recruiting takes place. Jails are the source of converts to Islam in the form of ISIS, Hamas, Jihadists and the like. Perhaps we should consider placing all Jihadists in Jail in a special quanrantine area (Guantanimo Bay) where they are safe from converting others.

  13. Why would I have contact with them? USA created them by going in 10 years ago. They can call themselves whatever they like, it doesn't mean they are true followers of Islam as Islam supports all the holy books and all the prophets including Moses and Jesus. ISIS are a cult.

  15. He will be dead and buried before he ever gets out of prison. I would imagine that his children are not to happy about this and will leave him in the prison’s cemetery where he will remain.

  17. ISLAMS SEEMS TO GET OUT OF JAIL NO MATTER WHAT THEIR CRIMES ON BEFORE THEIR TIME WHILE JEWS SIT AND ROT.

    BEWARE OF YOUR HEAD AND OJ AT YOUR STREET CORNER AS OBAMA WILL SURELY RELEASE HIM HIS GOOD BROTHER.

  18. This is not at all uncommon among people who followed a religion whose moral laws they have grievously transgressed. I know of many adulterers and a few murderers who have bailed on a Christian religion (which would cause their conscience to condemn them) for an unusual or cult-like religion like Christian Science, Scientology or Islam.

  19. Yechiel Baum – Where are you getting your information from? How can you say something so stupid as Blacks get out of jail when Jews stay in jail? Are you so ignorant that you need to make things up to prove your point?
    If you have in mine the spy Jonathan Pollack he was arrested for treason and while OJ simpson is as low a form of life as their is on this planet, he is not in jail for murder but only robbery and his sentence is only about 30 years. As I said simpson will not live long enough to serve out his sentence. No one will claim his body and he will be buried in the prison cemetery, which I feel is too good for him. He is evil and even his children will reject his conversion!

  21. Reading what both Jews and Muslims have written on this page convinces me that both religions are so ed up religiously insane bat crazy, nothing that either of them says could have any credibility.

  22. Comedienne Lily Tomlin had a character on the old Laugh-In show from the 1960s who was a bag lady. She used to say, “No matter how cynical you try to be, you just can’t keep up!”

  23. God’s Word will never change. Time is coming when people will refuse Him openly. Hold on Christians, He is knocking at the door, open for Him so He can come in stay with you and lead you all the time.

  25. welcome to the religion of murder and robbery you can start a new life free of worrying about your past crimes,.you will face your maker soon enough so save your prayers you will need them.

  26.
