I heard about a sheikh, his name is Yusuf Estes? Does anyone have information about him? Was he a priest? how did he convert to Islam?

he wasn't a priest, his friend was. that's on a "peace tv" video that was posted on this site. he was a music teacher and he sold pianos. now he says music is haram. just google him. he's an old white guy, the muslims in the west like to parade him out. he has lots of videos on the web. there is a wiki page on him.

he does. it depends. there may still be the music debate on the community page that a_muhammad started. it would be under litature.

You know Muslim`s are distorted if they believe Music is Haram......

you're preaching to the choir. i think nietchze also said some thing to the effect of "if evil men have no song, why do the russians have songs". i think that was more a shot at the russians being evil, but you could see it as a shot against anyone without song.

Yeah all is about prejudice. People judge by the looks, so hope you don´t get spoked..

Yusuf Estes, a former priest and now a dynamic Sheik, was born in USA,

He is aged man, his father was a former priest and he embraced Islam too. Sheik Joseph, though old, always brings his father on the moving chair to attend the prayer at the mosque- a very impressive sight for two former priests who embraced Islam.

he wasn't a priest and neither was his father. they were protestants for god's sake. are you practicing taqqiyah?

and priest don't have children, usually. they are celibate, or are at least supposed to be.

Actually many priests do have children. Anglicans are protestants and they marry and have children.

you are right, my bad. i was referring to catholic priests. on the peace tv video it is a catholic nun asking him, and he says he was not a priest. you are right, many christian sects have priests that marry, eastern orthodox - greeks, russina, ukranian, etc, etc. the angelicans in america even have a gay female bishop i think. my apologies for my american/catholic centric view.
