Janet Jackson’s Ex-to-Be Wissam Al Mana Sends Her a Message from the Quran: “You shall hear many hurtful things”


Janet Jackson’s soon to be ex husband Wissam Al Mana has posted a message from the Quran. His website seems to be overhauled, too, to make him a little more accessible at a time when Jackson’s fans may be wondering what’s going on.

You shall most certainly be tried in your possessions and in your persons; and indeed you shall hear many hurtful things from those to whom revelation was granted before your time, as well as from those who have come to ascribe divinity to other beings beside Allah. But if you remain patient in adversity and conscious of Him – this, behold, is something to set one’s heart upon. – 3:186​

Al Mana also has a new bio. Are these messages to or about Janet? You betcha.

Growing up, my parents taught me humility and fairness. I start my introduction with that fact because it is really the basis of who I am today. I was born in Doha, Qatar and spent most of my developing years in
London, UK.
