Michael Jackson is considering converting to Islam, after his brother Jermaine convinced him the religion will change his life for the better.
Jermaine credits his faith with helping him cope on British reality show Celebrity Big Brother.
The 52-year-old says, "If I didn't have Allah and my prayer rug, I would not have survived, and the reason why is because it kept me focused, it kept me calm.
"Michael, I feel, needs to become a Muslim because I think it's a great protection for him from all the things that he's been attacked with, which are false. There's a strength and a protection there.
"I brought him a lot of books, and he reads everything and he reads a lot.
"I think he's probably given it serious thought because he's spent a lot of time in Bahrain. I was the reason why he had gone there because I wanted him to get out of America and just go somewhere peaceful and quiet, where people pray five times a day. It's a beautiful thing."
