Snoop Dogg has revealed he has joined the Nation of Islam after appearing at the religious group's annual Saviours' Day event in Chicago.
The rapper, who described himself as the "leader of the hip-hop community", told followers he would share what he learned with other musicians.
He told reporters that he joined the group because he was "doing what's right and representing what's right".
It preaches self-reliance for black people within an Islamic framework.
At Sunday's event, the rapper sat on stage while Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan gave a speech.
He said afterwards that listening to the speech from Mr Farrakhan was "about a mirror - it's about looking at yourself".
He added: "We're doing a lot of wrongs among ourselves that need correcting."
When asked if he had joined the movement he said: "I'm already in the Nation, that's why I'm here.
"I'm an advocate for peace, I've been in the peace movement ever since I've been making music.
"My whole thing is not about really trying to push my thing on you.
"It's just about the way I live, and I live how I'm supposed to live as far as doing what's right and representing what's right - that's why I was here today."
He would not say when he had joined the Nation of Islam.
Other rappers previously involved with the movement include NWA star-turned-actor Ice Cube.

Islam and Nation of Islam (NI) are two different things; hence subscribing to one does not in any way joining the other. Any way, I think we have once throughly discussed this issue on this board. For further proofs on what I say, make a little research on who are NI; what is their doctrine; how do they consider their leader, Frakhan and so on. You'll tell me. May Allah guide us to the right path, amin.

So the Nation of Islam are not muslims?, , Is it ur Imam that told u this or u are just saying it?, Better say that they are a sect in islam rather than disavowing the group, After all they participate in all islamic rites,
P.S Ice cube is not a real muslim, He said it Himself that he does not partake in any islamic rites, check wikipedia.org

i thought your attitude was only blind against the Shia.now i discover even against your fellow Sunnis who have truly deviated further than you from the truth are also targetted.
i want to warn that this salafist aka wahhabi approach with "takfirism" (passing disbelief) on anyone who disagree with their school of thought among muslims is heartaching and causing muslims lot of pain the world over.likewise their blindness of declaring war on and killing innocentnon-muslims when islam does not order that.they actually forget that they themselves only make up a small number among the many Sunnis.
in islam,as far as anyone believes in the Shahadatain (the two testimonies of faith) and recites them with his lips,that person is muslim.he can be heretical in his views,or deviant or ignorant or misled or ghulat (those who exaggerate in beliefs).nevertheless that person remains a muslim.

yet when your shia brethren in Syria kill the sunni majority there, you have no qualms about it, there is nothing more dangerous than hypocrisy, hypocrisy that only accepts blindly what it deems fit.

Hump sha rump to all! We have to stick together in this tuff profession of ours! One day I hope to expand a mosque to the lower eastern block of B.F. Holiness! That's correct! It comes a time when we have to look ourselves in the mirror and do away with the mayonnaise patties and carpets! There is enough financial backing for all of our private matters! With the likes of Snoop Dogg and company at our doors our cup shall overfloweth! Peace be upon on Him!

Maybe you're confusing Ice Cube with Ice T. Cube has alwys been a very disciplined and responsible sort. But, I could be wrong.
|Re: Snoop Dogg And Ice Cube Joined Islam by ayusman16(m): 8:15am On Oct 18, 2011|
you are bleeping wrong. Go watch the videos and listen to their lyrics.
