After reading the Qu’ran in 2015 and setting up a production company in Dubai last year, the actor’s reps have told the Muslim Council she is ‘in a period of renewal’. Speculation about her lifestyle choices is now rife, with many Muslims saying they’re ‘proud’ of her and sending her ‘peace and blessings’.
Several months ago, speaking to Turkish television, wearing a scarf over her hair, Lohan said that the Quran had helped her find peace.
The Mean Girls star, who spent the new year in Dubai, has previously spoken about Islam being ‘who [she is]’. ‘My very close friends, who have been there for me a lot, in London are Saudi and they gave me the Qu’ran and I brought it to New York because I was learning,’ she revealed on Turkish TV show Haber Turk.
‘It opened doors for me to experience spiritually, to find another true meaning. This is who I am.’

Since then Lindsay has worked with refugees in Abu Dhabi and Syria, as well as being influenced by her Muslim friends Karen Wazen Bakhazi and Joelle Mardinian.
It’s not been long since the end of Lohan’s engagement to Russian ex Egor Tarabasov, who was apparently abusive to her. They broke up in August, with Lohan saying her former partner was not prepared to ‘say sorry’.
