After Tamil music director Yuvan Shanker Raja & Tamil actress Monkia, it’s time for Tamil actor Jai who converts to Islam and was seen in Chennai mosque praying with musician Yuvan. However; Time of India already reported Jai increasing interest in Islam on April 19, 2014. After music composer Yuvan Shankar Raja has embraced Islam on his social networking site, now its turn to Jai who have been following strong values of Islam quite sometimes. A close source of the actor elaborates; Jai has been following Islam for the past one year. Even though Jai had even kept the fast during Ramzan last year, and since then, has been visiting the dargah every Friday without fail. We don’t know the actual reason behind his change of mind. All we know is that he has been following the religion and has not officially converted yet. And also, he has not changed his name.
Meanwhile, the actor also hinted about his attraction to Islam in his messenger site, where his status read “Alhamdhulillah”, which in turn sparked off the conversion rumors. Though, when contacted the actor, he said, “I haven’t converted to Islam.” But according to Muslim Mirror has got few exclusive photos of Jai who was spotted with musician Yuvan Sankar Raja while praying at Chenni T.Nagar Anjuman masjid. Jai is one of the most popular sought after actor in Tamil film industry. But reports are confirming that it has been confirmed that after Tamil composer Yuvan Shanker Raja and actress Monika, actor Jai has also converted to Islam. Music genius and Oscar winner AR Rahman has also converted to Islam.
The popular Tamil film actress Monika who is famous for her films like “Azhagi” and “Silanthi” has converted to Islam and her new name is M G Rahima. The inspired actress has acted in over 70 films as heroine and as a child artist. Monika started her filmy career as a child artist in Avasara Police 100. She is also popular in other South Indian film industries like Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. Monika’s parents are Christians and the actress says hereafter she won’t be acting in films now.
She says; there is no selfishness in her decision to convert to Islam. I don’t convert for the sake of love of money; I’m not such a person. I really like the Islamic values, principles which inspired me to convert to Islam. She’s very happy in which she declared about her decision to adopt her new faith. The actress is also planning to marry and that decision will be arranged with the consent of my parents and I’ll intimate media once it will be arranged. Hereafter I won’t act in the film, it gives some pain but I don’t change my mind now. She’s really thankful to his father for his support and I’m not convinced to change my. But I’ll change my name is M.G.Raheema (M + Maruthi Raj (father), G-Gracy (mother)). The actress has also issued her new photographs in Islamic Abaya.
Yuvan Shankar Raja announces something very personal, when he tweeted that he is now following Islam, and dismissing rumors about him getting married for the third time, Yes I’m following Islam and “Alhamdulillah” I'm proud about it. My family really supports my decision and there’s no misunderstanding between me and my dad. Yuvan was actually very attached to his mother and soon after she passed away, he started missing her a lot. He also met a spiritual guru, but we cannot say what exactly made him follow Islam," and maintained that, he was definitely not inspired by fellow composer AR Rahman (who had converted to Islam) in his decision. Yuvan, has been practicing Islam for almost a year now. He has been offering Namaz five times a day all these months. He is not missing his prayers even when he is at work and ensures that he allocates time for it at his studio as well. Yuvan is now in the process of converting to Islam.
Presently he’s planning to convert to Islam and is also thinking of going for a change of name. But, he is yet to decide on these. Since it is his personal decision, his family members respect it. I’ve embraced Islam because it gives me much needed inner peace and absolutely there’s no need to hide it. Yuvan said No one insisted or recommended me to embrace Islam, in fact I didn’t choose Islam it was Islam that chose me. Initially I got some random dreams very often and I didn’t have any clue on it, later on I found out that I am experiencing spirituality. When I started reading “Holy Quran” I got answers for those dreams which I was experiencing, so I’ll accept that it was Islam that chose me.
Yuvan got married to his longtime friend Sujaya in 2005. But unhappily they got divorced in 2007. Then in 2011, he married again to Shilpa, but the second marriage also went through turbulence. At first his father Ilaiyaraaja was stunned but later on he understood my decision and at the end of the day he wants me to be happy. Even Karthik Raja and Bhavatharini have understood my decision and we’re good as a family.
