Dear xpatriot, you wrote :

< don't know if Charles converted>

There is an interesting interview with Sheik Mohammed Nazim
al Haqqani, Mufti of Turkish Cyprus and Grandsheik of the Most
Distinguished Naqshabandi Order of Sufis, in Northern Cyprus from 24.01.1994 on that issue.

http://www.mail-archive.com/majelismuda@yahoogroups.com/msg02115.html

Where the Mufti of "secular" Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus states :

"He ( Prince Charles J.G.) is now a real sincere Sufi Moslem showing love and praise for Sufism
and Islam. If I as a mufti and sheik were to praise Christianity,
what would you understand about me? It is very clear.

And what about Prince Charles' coming to Turkey and going to ancient
places of worship, visiting the holy graves of the Prophet's
Disciples, and visiting the Sufi saints in Istanbul and Konya and
his studying the Sufi Moslem communities, looking at the Ottoman
Civilisation, praising it and saying it is so good, so perfect? "

"In England, at Oxford University, he (as Patron of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies J.G.) stood up and made a lecture about the perfection and beauty of true Islam. How are we able to
say that he has not accepted it or that he is not sincere?"

Then the Grand Sheikh quotes 'charming' Moslem prophesies to the effect that

"when the Last Days approach, at the time of Imam Mehdi, peace be on him, seven great
nations will enter into true Islam, and the first of them will be
England. English people are the first ones who are going to become
Sufi Moslems, then Germans, then five more great Western countries. "

Mad and muddled as all Moselm ways of arguing are, yet there is a method in that madness :

"It is enough that Prince Charles praised true Islam, the Sufi Islam (...). That
means what was in his heart appeared on his tongue. God Almighty is
accepting. It is not necessary for him to stand up in Trafalgar Square and say,
"La ilaha illa Allah Mohammadun Rasulullah, I just
accepted Sufism and Islam, as I accept all religions, without
discrimination. " If he does that, perhaps people will throw stones,
eggs, tomatoes, and onions at him. But he is clever and protected
and he is also blessed. He going to meet the Mehdi, the Guided One
who is coming before the return of Jesus, peace be on them, and he
is going to become one of his ministers. " They should once again be kings with full
authority and power. Now the parliamentary system of democracy is
going to end, and all of them should come back to the throne,
everywhere. "

Well, from a political point of view converting Britain to Islam would mean an enormous increase in the power of the monarch and of course the end of British democracy which has long since degenerated into an oligarchy estranged from the British people.

Anyway, if I were a future king, I would find teh below really attarctive :

< Now kings, they are very few. At the beginning of the century there were about 140 kings yet in our days there are only 20 or 25 kings
left. Most of them were thrown down from their thrones and exiled.
Whichever people have the honor to have a king, they should give
thanks and praise to God for their kingship. God Almighty is going
to give them back their full rights. Therefore perhaps before the
year 2000 every king that lost their power and their royal rights
should gain them given back. And every one of them is going to be a
minister of Mehdi, the Guided One (peace be on him), and a supporter
of Jesus when he returns and one of them that is going to be given
authority, is Hussein Charles, Prince Charles.>

Royalty mixed with theology - as it has always been- produces an explosive and dangerous mixture. If this theology is Islam, then in addition to its explosive potential the mixture is extremely poisonous and doubly dangerous.

Best regards,

Ianus
