    the answer is ... no

    if you search these forums, I have listed several songs with lyrics where Ice Cube answers this question and the answer has always been, no, he is not a Muslim.

    Now I'm confused. I heard somewhere he converted 1992 to Islam. Is that just a bad joke ?

    he may have opinions that fall in line with them, but listen to "When Will They Shoot?"

    he clearly says.. "And you ask if I'm a five-percenter, well...
    No,"

    and we know a "five percenter" is a reference to The Nation

    also, I will dig up the other song and post it here, there is another song where he makes mention of Muslim and that he is not one. I forgot that lyric right now, but I will find it and post it.

    "I ask whether - having converted in the early 90s - he's still Muslim himself. "Yeah. Oh yeah." And still involved with Nation of Islam, the militant faction he once called "the best place for any young black male"? This time he hesitates. "Ah, when you say involved with the Nation, it's tricky. I never was in the Nation of Islam... I mean, what I call myself is a natural Muslim, 'cause it's just me and God. You know, going to the mosque, the ritual and the tradition, it's just not in me to do. So I don't do it."

    He is a muslim, listen to his lyrics man.

    His latest album Raw Footage has so many references to him being muslim I tink its no doubt that he is

    From Gangsta rap made me do it:

    "Becuz me and allah go back like cronies
    I don't got to be fake becuz he is my homie"

    Big CO.SIGN!!

    he can do things there's not accepted in islam, but he can still be a muslim, like if you're a muslim and sometimes dont dare to pray Only ONE prayer, but that's not accepted neither, but you can still be a muslim!

    anyways i beleave Cube is muslim, but i don't think he's a REALLY Beleavin' one, who knows, he havn't mentioned GOD as many times as in Raw Footage, maybe he's beleaving now! Who knows!

    Why is everyone still discussing it? WestSiiiiide answered the question long ago, satisfactorily i believe. Anyway, to sum it all up:

    Ice Cube is NOT a muslim in the sense that he does not pray 5 times a day, fast in Ramadan nor has he shown plans to make the pilgrimage to Makkah. However "...what I call myself is a natural Muslim, 'cause it's just me and God" indicates that he may support some of the ideals.

    Hopefully I've cleared this up rather than made it more confusing :blink:

    thanks nil8r153 for the backup..

    yeah, I thought it was VERY clear given I quoted his own words versus those that read into his words.




    MANY people use words like Allah, and are not Muslim, just to make reference to a higher power like God. Heck, think of the number of references to God Cube makes on this new album. Dozens! Does that prove him to be a Christian then using your logic?

    well nobody knows if he got plans about a pilgrim to mekkah or he does pray as "much" he can or if he fast aswell.. anyways he can stil be a muslim eventhough he doesn't pray 5 times a day! you're a muslim if you JUST beleave this:

    Allah is the ONLY god & Mohammed (PBUH) his messenger..

    but then he might not be able to pray the 5 times a day.. or who knows if he even does??

    and yes nil8r153, i do totally AGREE with you about WHY do we discuss this!!?? it doesn't MATTER!!! cube is cube no matter what he does!

    *sigh* I knew as soon as i watched that video and then come here saying "i told you so". I'm not even gonna justify the comment with a decent reply.

    EDIT: Cube is the number one rapper though, that i agree with.

    Fri, Sep 26, 2008 at 10:35 PM

    And i just wanna clear something up for any people who comment on this thread in the future. I am not Ice Cube and i don't know what his beliefs are. Nor am i a Muslim-hater, as i myself am a Muslim. While it would be cool if Cube was Muslim, all signs indicate he isn't.

    hehe well there's NO reason to blame you if what yoou THINK is wrong, actually none of us can be sure about it! but i agreeee with you in it whole that post ;)

    Hi guys, I am able to emphatically confirm that Cube is a Muslim.

  19. Re: ice cube are you muslim

    Sun, Oct 12, 2008 at 5:06 PM

    Well Wikipedia says that he converted to Islam.
    And I think that he is a muslim.
    So what if he doesn't goes to mosque or as someone says he does things that aren't "acceptable" in Islam. I am a muslim and I never go to mosque. And I still call myself a muslim.

    some of you are so hard headed, it is amazing..

    1. how does the video Why Me 'prove' he is Muslim - because it has Middle East visuals? Good God, that is such a stretch to assume that!

    2. Many of you are just glossing over the QUOTED and PRINTED 1-on-1 interview with Cube where he says he is not a Muslim

    3. Wikipedia? Are you kidding? ANYONE can edit a Wikipedia entry... what does that prove? But, if you want to use that as proof, you best read it and read it again, "I mean, what I call myself is a natural Muslim, 'cause it's just me and God. You know, going to the mosque, the ritual and the tradition, it's just not in me to do. So I don't do it." - if you can't figure it out from there, I do not know what to tell you.

    4. some of you, with no proof, no quotes, just say "well, I know he is" - you have no credibility whatsoever when you just state that and offer no proof.


    Personally, I do not care if he is or is not, but the answer seems so clear, just not sure why it really matters either way, but it is annoying as hell those of you that claim to say he is for sure.. but offer no proof versus the abundant proof - from quotes to songs to movie rolls to behaviors - that show he is not.
