Janet Jackson's Family Upset The Singer Is Raising Son Muslim: Sacrificing Animals?
Janet Jackson welcomed her first child, a son named Eissa Al Mana on January 3, with her husband Wissam Al Mana. Janet's family are thrilled for the singer but are having trouble accepting Janet's decision to raise her son Muslim.
The Jackson family appears to believe that Wissam has "brainwashed" Janet into converting to Islam and are shocked she has decided to raise her son Muslim too.
This reportedly includes traditional practices such as sacrificing animals on the newborn’s behalf.

Her family believes that the 50-year-old singer is setting her desires aside and just going along with her husband's wishes.
An insider revealed, "As soon as the child was born, Wissam whispered in the boy’s right ear the word, ‘Adhan,’ which inculcates into the child that Allah is the only god and Muhammad is the only messenger."
Al Mana then reported rubbed a soft fruit on baby Eissa’s tongue, a practice that assures the baby will "inherit the positive traits of his parents, especially his father’s."

The source also stated, "We were told that a goat or a sheep was sacrificed, which is the case with every true Muslim birth when the parents wish to please and show thanks to Allah."
Children in the Jackson family were all raised as Jehovah’s Witnesses and the family is upset that Janet converted to Islam when she tied the knot back in 2012.
Janet has been spotted wearing burkas in public and even traded in her controversial stage costumes for more conservative attire during her shows.
It was previously reported that Janet would be giving her child the middle name "Michael" after her late brother Michael Jackson. However, her husband was not having it!
The insider said, "Wissam told her it’s up to the husband in Muslim culture to provide a Muslim name and he would not allow for a Christian name to be given, especially to a son."
