i wish they would just put up the whole lecture
Contrary to popular belief, Chappelle has actually been muslim for many years.
Brother of Dave Chapelle, the famous comedian.
Yup, Brother Dave has been Muslim for several years now (I'm not sure how many). Several people who I know quite well, including a former roommate and some other close associates, saw him in Medina during Zaytuna's Rihla program in 2005. He wasn't a part of the Rihla program, but he just happened to be over there at the same time. I've heard he's very nice, humble, and down to earth.
Chappelle may have converted in '98, but it was in '05 that he became a practicing Muslim. If anyone's seen his shows, they know it tends to be sexual and racist. However, because he began practicing as a Muslim, he walked away from a $50 million contract 2 months after he signed it, mashallah.
hey remember that time on his show he did the black white supremacist? that was funny.
Dave was asked why he doesnt make more display of being a Muslim.
His answer was that his religion(Islam) is so beautiful that he doesnt want to respresent the deen because of his own character and behaviour.
