The Great British Islam

Added by on 16/09/2012

Have you heard about the three men whose Islam shook the 19th century Victorian Britain? How and when did Islam reach Britain?

Lord Baron Headley, Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall (who translated the Qur’an), Abdullah Quilliam (formerly William Henry Quilliam) are the three prominent British converts who draw up the map of Islam in Britain.

Embracing Islam they shacked up the 19th century Victorian aristocratic society letting the flames of religion revolution which altered the face of Britain forever.

Explaining the the fact of being a Muslim for over 20 years, Lord Headley once remarked:

‘It is possible that some of my friends may imagine that I have been influenced by Mohammedans; but it is not the case, for my convictions are solely the outcome of many years of thought. My actual conversations with educated Muslims on the subject of religion only commenced a few weeks ago and need I say that I am overjoyed to find that all my theories and conclusions are entirely in accord with Islam?’

This is the story of three extraordinary pioneers, once aristocratic Christians, who embraced Islam at a time when to be a Muslim was to be seen a traitor to your country and the focus of hostility.

From an estimated 10, 000 Muslims in the UK in the first quarter of the 20th century there are between two and three million British Muslims (4% – 6% of the population) and more now, half of them were born in Britain.
