British Upper Class Turning to Islam
Authentic research has shown that over 14,000 British men and women have converted to Islam after having lost hope in the style of life the West is offering.
Amongst the converts there exist many well-known personalities which is a boost for the Muslims who have become a prey to accusations of terrorism and are living in fear.
The Muslim Council has appointed the former health minister’s son Ahmed Dobson as chairman of their new committee which is striving to explain the reality of Islam to the whites living in the United Kingdom.
Yahya Britt (Jonathan Britt) the former BBC director has researched thoroughly the data of Christians converting to Islam and concluded that the total number of new Muslims in Britain was about 14200. In his statement of conversion to Islam last week, Britt stressed the point that Britain also needed a leader to bring whites more easily into Islam, just as Malcom X had done for the blacks of America, and make Islam a more national religion rather than foreign as it is at present.
Herbet Scott’s great grand daughter, Emma Clark has also accepted Islam. A former designer for the gardens of the Prince of Wales is now involved in designing a mosque’s garden. She stated to the press a few days ago that ‘I accepted Islam after detesting the double standards of Western values and to flee from the filth that surrounds it.’ Her great grandfather who was the prime minister of Britain in 1908-1916 led his people to the lines of victory in the First World War.
Most new converts have been greatly influenced by Charles Easton’s book, Islam and the Destiny of Man. He had stated that he had received thousands of letters informing him that they had lost hope in today’s Christianity which is following the whims and desires of people and are searching for such a religion which does not have this.
The earl of Yarbrough who is the owner of over 28,000 acres of land in Lincolnshire told the press, ‘I have changed my name to Abdul Mateen and would only like to say that study Islam and you shall see its beauty.’
Her Majesty has given full permission for Muslim staff working in Buckingham Palace to take time off to perform their Friday prayers.
The above were examples of people who were directly connected to the kingdom, whose grandparents were the bearers of knighthoods and lordships, who used to sit in the houses of Parliament, wealthy people, from a nation which has never been ruled by outsiders. But what happened to these people’s progeny? There was no slavery or force on them to make them accept Islam; it was solely the unexplainable hearts contentment we found which compelled them into Islam.
After all it is the reason of our shyness and inferiority complex that is stopping us from performing even my Jumua amidst our colleagues at work only because of the fear of what will people say or that our business may lose profits, yet the Buckingham Palace is allowing such facilities.
