Buckingham Palace Under the Shariah


Approximately 85 years ago, on 3rd March 1924CE a calamity had befallen mankind like no other; on this tumultuous day the precious nest of Islam, which had encased its citizens, Muslim and non-Muslim with justice and serenity, was dismantled by those at war with Allah (SWT) and His Messenger Muhammad (saw).

This State of Tawheed or Islamic State had governed countries and continents with an extraordinary execution unlike any other political system, and for over 1300 years provided solutions to socio-economic problems that had plagued mankind for centuries. Places such as Andalusia (Spain) flourished under this divine legislature to such an extent, that its rich history still manages to captivate the minds of contemporary authors, compelling them to disseminate volumes of books dedicated to the enchanting nature of this golden era.

But alas, for nearly a century we find that those golden years have been lost and that the era of darkness and servitude to man has prolonged - the sound of oppression has become deafening as the tyrants continue to speak.

However, there is a spark that has ignited and its flame has become unstoppable; in recent years the world has witnessed an Islamic resurgence which continues to gain in strength and formidability, and whose objective of the domination of Islam worldwide cannot be swayed.

This victorious group, hold rigidly to the divine text i.e. Qur'an and Sunnah, knowing full well that its prophecies must be fulfilled; and so we find ourselves in the year 2009, waiting for Rome to fall, waiting for the White House to fall and indeed waiting for Buckingham Palace to fall.

In light of this, we at Islam4UK felt it necessary to discuss this very important area, particularly given the current political climate as it is. We furthermore hope that by divulging some of these unspoken of details that it will educate the British public about the superiority of the Shari'ah over democracy and man-made law, and hopefully entice them to implement it here in Britain sooner rather than later.

History of Buckingham Palace

Between 500CE - 1600CE, the area surrounding what is now known as Buckingham Palace was part of a larger area known as Eia or Manor of Ebury, a marshy ground, irrigated by the river Tyburn. Ownership of this land changed several times and included notable individuals such as Edward the Confessor William the Conqueror, Henry VIII, James I and Mary Davies.

It was not until 1703CE that a townhouse was built on this ground for the Duke of Buckingham, this building was thence known as Buckingham House; on the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837CE, it was finally transformed into what is now famously known as Buckingham Palace, thus making Queen Victoria the first monarch to reside in this building.

Today, Buckingham Palace is the official London residence of the British monarch and since 6th February 1962CE has been in the possession of the current Queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II.

Buckingham Palace Under the Shariah

Indeed, Buckingham Palace is not a stranger to architectural change, in fact in 1913 Aston Webb, a renowned English architect seemed dissatisfied with its design and proceeded to introduce structural improvements, which he deemed more appropriate. Subsequently, in light of this, the following are further possible modifications that we envisage could occur for Buckingham Palace once the Shari'ah is fully implemented here in Britain.

Buckingham Masjid

It has authentically been reported by Uthman bin Affan (ra) that the Final Messenger Muhammad (saw) said, "He who builds a masjid for the sake of Allah, seeking the pleasure of Allah, will be rewarded by Allah with a dwelling in Paradise."

One very real possibility that we envisage could occur in Britain when it succumbs to Islamic rule is for Buckingham Palace to be converted into a beautiful mosque (click picture to enlarge).

However, with that said, the mosque in question would possess a very different role to that of contemporary mosques found dotted all over the United Kingdom, which unfortunately do very little to reflect the real responsibility of this central building in Islam.

During the lifetime of the Final Messenger Muhammad (saw) and the dawn of the first Islamic State in Madinah, the mosque or masjid, was the starting point to the expansion of Islamic conquests which engulfed large parts of the world.

Buckingham Masjid, would indeed incorporate this as well as other important features including departments and divisions such as:

1. Headquarters of the Islamic States supreme leadership

It is well known that the Final Messenger Muhammad (saw) would meet envoys, sign agreements, judge between disputing parties etc. in the mosque.

2. Department of Information and Culture

The mosque is regarded as an important centre for Islamic information, since it is the scene of political, social, cultural and ritual life. All important news relating to vital issues will be conveyed in the mosque.

3. Judiciary Court

Judges would regularly settle disputes and arguments and this is well recorded.

4. University for Learning and Teaching

Courses will be dictated by a syllabus grounded in the Qur'an and Sunnah and moreover be open to men, women, Muslims and non-Muslims, free of charge.

5. Platform for oratory eloquence and poetry

It is authentically recorded that companions of the Messenger Muhammad (saw) would regularly take to the pulpit in the mosque and engage in exquisite poetry. Topics that would be encouraged could include the belittlement of democracy as well as the fallacies of man-made law.

6. Detention Centre for Prisoners of War

Imam Bukhari records that a man by the name of Thumama bin Uthal from the tribe Banu Hanifah was taken as a prisoner of war during the lifetime of the Messenger Muhammad (saw). Muhammad (saw) later ordered his release from captivity, and he embraced Islam.

7. An eating place for the hungry and poor

Ibn Majah reported that the Abdullah ibn al Haarith (ra) said, "We used to eat bread and meat in the mosque during the lifetime of the Messenger of Allah (saw)."

8. A place for socialising, celebrations and amusement

Bukhari and Muslim narrated that Aisha (ra) said, "The Messenger of Allah was once covering me while I was watching the Abysinnians play with their spears in the mosque."

9. A place of relaxation and siesta

Ahmed, Nisaa'i, Abu Dawood report that Abdullah ibn Umar (ra) said, "During the lifetime of Muhammad (saw) we used to sleep in the mosque and have siesta there when we were young."

At present, Buckingham Palace is nothing more than a hollow building exploited by the rich and withheld from any real use, under the Shari'ah this would never happen, rather the British community would see it converted into a flourishing mosque which would be of a great benefit, not only for those residing in London but also the country as a whole.

British Crown Jewels

Although the crown jewels are currently situated in the Tower of London, due to their prominent association to the British monarch, we felt it necessary to make mention of their likely change of circumstances under the Shari'ah.

It is quite amazing to see that while Britain is struggling to cope with the impact of a crippling recession, that the divide between the rich and poor is still so large and furthermore does not motivate the British establishment to channel valuable resources for the welfare of its less well-off citizens.

One possibility that we foresee could occur under the Shariah would be the melting of the crown jewels into more appealing jewellery free from idolatrous engravings or symbols such as crosses and human beings (click picture to enlarge).

On completion, we envisage making a unique offer for the benefit of single (Muslim) women in Britain who happen to be widows or divorcees; a declaration could be made to all (Muslim) men in Britain, that if any of them chose to marry a widowed or divorced woman, with her approval, that the dowry liable to her, as her divine right, would be afforded by the government from these re-designed crown jewels (click on picture on right to see possible re-designed jewellery). Indeed, this would incline many men to look after women who are unfortunate enough to be isolated in society with very little hope of a meaningful companionship.

Masjid Road

With Trafalgar Square Under the Shariah already mentioned in a previous article, we felt that a viable connection between it and Buckingham Palace would be an excellent addition to demonstrate Britain's changing landscape under the Shari'ah. One possible addition which we envisage could be very beneficial for this area would be the conversion of Mall Road into Masjid Road (click picture to enlarge).

Incidentally, this road would lead directly to Buckingham Masjid and thus compliment it perfectly, particularly as modifications mentioned previously in the Trafalgar Square under the Shariah article included the renovation of fountains into a ritual ablution facility.


In conclusion, with the dawn of a new era very close, Britain's future under the Shari'ah appears to be very bright. We furthermore would like to take this opportunity to say that if any member of the Muslim community have any ideas on what other alterations could occur to Britain Under the Shari'ah, that we would welcome them in your comments.
