X 17 online, a celebrity website reported quoting sources close to the family that Jackson’s new found will states that he will be buried in the traditions of his new faith.
“The family is considering following the Muslim burial traditions because Michael would have wanted to be laid to rest in keeping with his new-found religious beliefs. Michael’s brother Jermaine is educating the family as to the special rites,” the source said.
Jackson had reportedly converted to Islam in November last year and taken the name of ‘Mikhaail’.
Meanwhile, a public viewing of the performer will take place on Friday at his fantasy themed abode California ranch, Neverland. There has been no official confirmation from Jackson’s family on the location where his body will be laid to rest.
NDTV adds: Michael Jackson’s memorial will not take place at Neverland, because of a legal issue. The new owners of the ranch were not able to get a clearance in time for the funeral.
The Jackson family is not sure where it will be now, although the date is thought to remain the same.
