Like his brothers, Jermaine Jackon was raised a devout Jehovah's Witness. A trip to Bahrain in 1989 changed that. "There I happened to meet some children and had a light chitchat with them," Jackson said in 1999. "I put certain questions to them and they flung at me their innocent queries. During the course of this interaction, they inquired about my religion. I told them, 'I am a Christian.' I asked them, as to what was their religion? A wave of serenity took over them. They replied in one voice 'Islam.' Their enthusiastic answer really shook me from within."He's been a devout Muslim ever since, though he's been unable to convert any members of his family.
