Members of the Muslim faith welcomed her to Islam last week after she deleted her Instagram pictures and left an Arabic message of peace in her bio.
Lindsay Lohan spotted in headscarf amid claims she's converted to Islam

Lindsay Lohan has fuelled speculation she has converted to the religion after she was seen wearing a headscarf during a business meeting in Turkey, Joinfo.com reports with reference to Daily Mail Online.

Clad in a fur coat and with a conservative black scarf covering her hair, the Mean Girls star, 30, left the Istinye Shopping Mall alongside a group of men.

In contrast to her headwear, the Hollywood star sported a rather misplaced pair of thigh-high crushed velvet boots.

Her appearance comes after she left her Instagram bare apart from a message of ‘Alaikum salam’ in her bio.

The Arabic greeting translates to ‘and unto you peace,’ and many took it mean that Lohan was converting to the Muslim faith.

‘I’m so happy that lindsay lohan found Islam. may Allah guide her and bless her,’ wrote one young woman on Twitter.


Another posted on her account: ‘I heard that Lindsay Lohan converted to Islam? If it’s true, alhamdulillah. God has shown her the right path to now follow.’

Lohan has not revealed however if she is in fact converting to the faith, and a rep for the actress did not respond to a request for comment from DailyMail.com.


Lohan recently rang in the New Year in the Middle East, choosing to vacation in Dubai over the holidays.

There were previously rumors that Lohan might be converting back in 2015 when she was photographed holding a copy of the Quran while doing community service in Brooklyn.

When appearing on the Turkish talk show Haber Turk later year, she explained that the book was actually just a gift from some friends.

‘My very close friends, who have been there for me a lot, in London are Saudi and they gave me the Quran and I brought it to New York because I was learning,’ said Lohan.

‘It opened doors for me to experience spiritually, to find another true meaning. This is who I am.’

She claimed however that she was attacked after that picture was released in the media.

‘They crucified me for it in America. They made me seem like Satan. I was a bad person for holding that Quran,’ claimed Lohan.




She said that she was then happy to leave and return to London because she felt ‘so unsafe in [her] country.’

Lohan professed her interest in a number of religions during an interview with Oprah Winfrey back in 2014, telling the popular talk show host that she was a ‘very spiritual person.’

She had just completed her sixth stint in rehab at the time that she spoke with Winfrey, saying: ‘I’m a very spiritual person and I’ve become more spiritual as time has gone on.

‘I’m really in touch, whether it’s prayer or meditation… there are so many powers greater than me in the world. I’ve been blessed and lucky enough to have been given a gift to share with other people.’

Lohan spent time in October of last year visiting child refugees who had fled Syria and crossed over into Turkey.

She told Page Six last month that she was hoping to return to Turkey again either before or after the start of the new year.

‘The dates are not set yet. It depends on how Turkey feels after the recent terrorist attack in Istanbul,’ said Lohan, ‘Not that any attack has or will ever stop me from helping those suffering, those who need our help the most.’

She then added:  ‘I miss my family a lot, but they are very supportive and understanding of the fact that my main focus is business, writing and soon to start another film. More so, my work with refugees.’
