Former child star, Lindsay Lohan left her Instagram followers confused after she deleted every picture she had posted, leaving them with
only an Arabic message of peace “Alaikum salam” meaning peace be unto you, an Arabic greeting used both socially and in Islamic ceremony.
The message made some Muslim Instagram and Twitter users to speculate that Lohan had decided to convert to Islam.
Last year, the actress revealed she was learning Arabic. “I’ve been learning different languages since I was a child. I’m fluent in English and French, can understand Russian and am learning Turkish, Italian and Arabic.” She said.
In a 2015 interview on Turkish television, Lohan expressed admiration for the Quran, which she has been photographed holding several times.
“My very close friends, who have been there for me a lot, in London are Saudi and they gave me the Quran and I brought it to New York because I was learning,” she said.
“It opened doors for me to experience spiritually, to find another true meaning. This is who I am.”
