Muhammad Ali.

Legendary heavyweight boxing champion, Muhammad Ali, is a devout Muslim. In a December 2015 statement, he told NBC News, “I am a Muslim and there is nothing Islamic about killing innocent people in Paris, San Bernardino, or anywhere else in the world. True Muslims know that the ruthless violence of so called Islamic Jihadists goes against the very tenets of our religion… Our political leaders should use their position to bring understanding about the religion of Islam and clarify that these misguided murderers have perverted people’s views on what Islam really is.

Zayn Malik

Former One Direction singer Zayn Malik is easily one of the most famous Muslims in pop culture today. And unfortunately, his religious identity has been a seemingly constant source of criticism and conflict for the star.

In 2012, conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel cautioned parents, “Jihad is sneaking into American girls’ favorite pop band.” In 2013, American rapper Rucka Rucka Ali released a track with the refrain, “Zayn Hussein did 9/11.” Then in 2015, comedian Bill Maher compared the British Pakistani pop star’s appearance to that of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
And through it all, Malik has also met with harsh criticism from conservative Muslims, who view his smoking, tattoos and pop star lifestyle as inconsistent with the teachings of Islam.As a result, #RespectForZayn has become a trending hashtag among his followers on Twitter, who feel he shouldn’t be singled out so unfairly on the grounds of his beliefs.

Doctor Mehmet Oz

Dr. Mehmet Oz is an acclaimed cardiothoracic surgeon at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, as well as an author and the host of the popular health and wellness TV series, “The Dr. Oz Show.” The Turkish-American doctor is also a Muslim.
In an interview with PBS’ “Faces of America,” Dr. Oz explained that his father comes from Turkey’s “Quran Belt” and his mother was a secular Turk. “You know, I’ve struggled a lot with my Muslim identity,” he explained. “As a Turk, growing up in America with one parent from one side of the religious wall and one parent from the other side, and of course America clearly supporting the secular background, I found myself tugged more and more towards the spiritual side of the religion, rather than the legal side of the religion.”
