Michael Jackson's family may go for the traditional Islamic burial rituals for the late pop legend.

It has been quoted saying that "The family is considering the Muslim burial traditions because they believe Michael would have wanted to be laid to rest in keeping with his new-found religious beliefs”.

"Michael's brother Jermaine is educating the family as to the special rites because he feels it's important to bury his brother according to the Muslim way," added the source.

Even though there had been reports that both public and private memorial services will be held for the late “Pop King” which is to be held this week, there has been no official confirmation yet from Jackson's family on the location where his body will be laid to rest.

Jackson reportedly converted to Islam in late 2008, years after expressing his interest to join the faith. He later on changed his name into "Mikaeel", which was meant as a reference to the name of one of Allah's angels.
