Neeson, who was making a movie in the Turkish city of Istanbul some time back, had become fascinated with Islam during his stay.

Speaking to The Sun, the 59-year-old actor said: "The Call for Prayer (Adhan) happens five times a day and for the first week, it drives you mad, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it's the most beautiful, beautiful thing".

"By the third week, it was like I couldn't live without it. It really became hypnotic and very moving for me in a very special way. Very beautiful", he added.

He added there were more than 4,000 mosques in the city while some of them were just stunning, which really forced you to think for becoming a Muslim.

Reports that Neeson has converted to Islam surfaced in June 2012 also. But they were later denied by his publicist. He has also expressed admiration for the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.

Neeson, an Irish actor, rose to prominence with his starring role in Steven Spielberg's 1993 Oscar winner Schindler's List. Director Steven Spielberg offered Neeson the role of Oskar Schindler in the film about the Holocaust, Schindler's List after watching him in Anna Christie on Broadway.

Neeson has been nominated for a number of awards, including an Academy Award for Best Actor, a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role and three Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama.
