Irish actor, Liam Neeson  has reportedly given up on his Catholic faith and is converting to Islam.

The Hollywood star, 59, was recently filming in Turkish city Istanbul and became fascinated with the Muslim faith during his stay.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “The Call to Prayer happens five times a day and for the first week it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing.

“There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim.”

Soon after speaking with The Sun,  Liam met with prominent Muslim clerics and mullahs from Turkey and reportedly has begun the conversion.

The actor was raised in Northern Ireland as a Catholic altar boy and was named after his local priest.

On his Catholic beliefs, he said: “I was reared a Catholic but I think every day we ask ourselves, not consciously, what are we doing on this planet? What’s it all about?

“I’m constantly reading books on God or the absence of God and atheism.”

Neeson stars in the action/thriller, The Grey, which follows a number of men stranded in Alaska after a plane crash, and forced to survive using little more than their wits as a pack of wolves comes after them.  It opens this weekend, January 27th.

Neeson has reportedly been seen reading a Koran and was in the middle of a meeting in Hollywood he left the room to bow to Mecca.

Could it be true?


  1. Liam Neeson lost his wife a couple of years ago, after she had a skiing accident. He is still grieving, which is why he is reading about God. He wants assurance he will see his wife again.
    To convert to Islam because the sound of the chants is pleasing and restful to him, is a huge mistake.

  2. Liam Neeson is the citizen of the United States, and according to the fundmental laws of USA " ALL CITIZENS HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE THEIR FAITH " so their is actually no point in discouraging him in taking his decision !!!

    and, if you have some time guys, spend some time reading the differences between TERRORISTS and ISLAM because Islam never promotes terrorism.

  3. Islam is very beautiful.. only if u lean about it with an open heart.. its very hard to ignore all the media, but once u do.. u will be fair to yourself.. even if dont like islam after that.. at least u decided .. no one put ideas in your head

  4. The problem with all faiths is man, man is the week link in all faiths. All religeon gets perverted because man uses religeon as a way to rationalize hate to others. Christianity is the only religeon that understands the flaws of man and heals the man's soul rather than asking toe man to work out the problems of his soul on his own. Man has done many great things but history shows that man's soul is eternally corrupt if left to his own means. Christianity is the only religeon that is the medicine to heal a broken soul. However all faith including Christianity is blasphemed by man's actions. Plenty of good and bad people claiming to be Christian, plenty of good and bad people claiming to be Islam, the full truth will only be revealed in the very end, until then its by faith. I pray that Liam listens to Christ again in the future because its what I have faith in being the only way. I pray for him and his family. I however am not about to admonish his religeous choices, its his free will.

  5. It is written in Islamic law that they may do to their women as they wish. Ask the women if they think this makes Islam wonderful to them, when they have eyes, nose, ears cut out, are raped against their will and then, as a punishment for being raped and bringing shame on the family, are stoned to death, or beheaded, or burned alive or bathed in lye. Give me the Lord Jesus Christ! He blessed women, He honored women, He was no respecter of persons, be they male or female. Where Islam beats and mutilates, Christ admonishes that we treat others the way we ourselves want to be treated. Where Islam says An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, Christ Jesus says, Love your enemy. Do good to those who despise you, for then you shall truly be a child of your Father who is in Heaven. Give me Christ. He was a friend to the friendless, the helper of the widow and orphan. It doesn;t take a rocket scientist to see that the fruits of Islam are dark and death and destruction, and the fruits of Christ Jesus the Lord – the Living God – are Life, and light and wealth. "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life," says Christ. And His words and works bear that out. Peace and love to all – and if they are Muslim, peace and love to them as well. THIS is the Spirit of God – who loves all. Even women. And, as a woman, this is why I am a follower of Christ.

    • Your ignorance and misunderstanding of my Islamic faith is a shame. I can only feel bad for you. Instead of making things up about how us women are treated how about reading the book and actually seeing for yourself how Islam obligates men to treat women as their equal. and sorry to burst your bubble but we believe in Jesus son of Mary as well except he was never crucified.

    • And actually reading your comment further, "An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" comes from the BIBLE not QURAN! you my friend lack education. Do not talk about what you know not about.

  6. Seems like you like many others picked out verses which promote your argument. There are million others in the quran which talk about kindness to women and living in peace with non muslims. If you really wanted to know the truth about Islam you'd do more research – the verses in the above should not be read out of context and seem to have been maniplulated with your added comments. My advice is to research with an open mind what you're not sure of.
