Over the weekend, the US actress and singer Lindsay Lohan changed her Instagram bio to “Alaikum salam”. The Arabic greeting translates to "Peace be unto you,".

Many, including Muslims, welcomed the actress' message as they took it mean that Lohan was converting to Islam.

Lohan also deleted all her photos from her Instagram page, leaving only her profile picture and a bio.

"I'm so happy that Lindsay Lohan found Islam. May Allah guide her and bless her," wrote one Twitter user.
"I heard that Lindsay Lohan converted to Islam? If its true, Alhamdulillah. God has shown her the right path to now follow,” adds another user.
 
However Lohan has not confirmed if she is indeed converting to the Muslim faith and her representatives were not available for comment. 

There were rumours making rounds in 2015 that Lohan would be converting to Islam when she was photographed holding a copy of the Quran while doing community service in Brooklyn.

The Mean Girls star then explained that the Quran was 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."

Lohan also made claims that she was attacked after that photograph 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," said Lohan.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey back in 2014, Lohan told the talk show host that she was a “very spiritual person”.

"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," she told Oprah.

In October Lohan was spotted carrying Quran and wearing a doek (or headscarf) as she helped refugees in Turkey.
