In front of a large congregation at the L.A. mosque, Jon, whose birth name is Jonathan Smith, recited the shahadah in Arabic and then in English under the guidance of the mosque’s imam.

Jon becomes the second notable American to embrace Islam during the first week of Ramadan this year, following in the footsteps of writer and political activist Shaun King. Other well-known figures such as Clarence Seedorf, Andrew Tate, Kevin Lee, Gervonta Davis, and Thomas Partey have recently converted to the faith.
