Winston Churchill Almost Converted to Islam


Winston ChurchillWinston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during the Second World War, had an admiration for Eastern culture and was willing to convert to Islam. The Information was revealed through a letter written in August 1907 and discovered by a researcher at the University of Cambridge, Warren Dockter. The letter was written by then Churchill’s future sister-in-law.

“Please don’t become converted to Islam; I have noticed in your disposition a tendency to Orientalize… If you come into contact with Islam your conversion might be effected with greater ease than you might have supposed, call of the blood, don’t you know what I mean, do fight against it,” lady Gwendoline Bertie wrote to young Winston Churchill.

According to the researcher, Churchill never seriously considered converting. “At that time, he was more or less an atheist. However, he had a fascination with Islamic culture that was common among the Victorians. »

Warren Dockter recalls that in 1940, the Prime Minister has provided financial support to the construction of what became the Central Mosque in London, hoping to win the support of Muslim countries during the war. Later, he told the House of Commons that “many of our friends in the Muslim countries” have enjoyed this “gift.”
Beyond his admiration for Islam, which he considered equal to Christianity, Winston Churchill also greatly admired the military techniques used during the expansion of the Ottoman Empire.

        Did you just admit that your Allah misguides? Not a nice thing to do, misguiding is the same as a lie, we all know there is only one liar and it’s not God estaghfrilah.

        1. In
          the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

          praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His

          Dear Brother in Humanity , thank you
          very much for showing interest in this concept,
          which I appreciate as I hope it shows
          how far you are interested in knowing the meanings of the Qur’an. May Allah
          Almighty guide us all to the Right Path and accept us among the people of the
          Qur’an (Ahlul-Qur’an)!

          Also the interpretation of the verse no 125 of
          Surat Al-An`am, let me first quote it; Allah Almighty says, {And whomsoever
          it is Allah’s will to guide, He expandes his bosom unto the Surrender, and
          whomsoever it is His will to send astray, He makes his bosom close and narrow
          as if he were engaged in sheer ascent. Thus Allah lays ignominy upon those who
          believe not.} (Al-An`am 6:125)

          The general meaning
          of the verse is: Whomever Allah desires to guide, He expands his breast to
          Islam, by casting into his heart a light which it [the heart] expands for and
          accepts, as reported in a hadith; and whomever He desires to leave astray, He
          makes his heart narrow, (unable) to accept it, and constricted, extremely tight
          by which it (the heart of the misguided one) is described hyperbolically as if
          he were engaged in ascent to the heaven, when he is charged with (the
          obligations of) faith, because of the hardship for him therein. So, like this
          making (of the heart narrow), Allah casts ignominy, chastisement, or (He casts)
          Satan, that is, He gives him authority, over those who do not believe.

          In another verse,
          Allah Almighty says, {Allah has sealed their [the disbelievers] hearing and
          their hearts…} (Al-Baqara 2: 7)

          So, how He sealed on
          their hearts and then asks them to become believers or to believe in Him? That
          is due to their own readiness for disbelief; as the hearts of people are ready
          for belief (iman) or disbelief (kufr). Those people’s
          (disbelievers) hearts were ready for disbelief and chose it, while others’
          (believers) hearts were ready for belief and chose it.

          So, predicating the
          “will” to Allah in this verse refers to the beforehand creation, which is
          common in the Qur’an as predicating what seems to be evil to Allah is from the
          point of creating, whereas its occurrence is based on the readiness of their
          hearts for being astray and they choose it by their free will – while others
          choose belief.

          In his Tafsir,
          late Sheikh Muhammad Metwally Ash-Sha`rawi, the eminent Egyptian
          scholar, adds,

          There are two kinds
          of guidance (hidayah); the first one is the showing (delalah)
          that means that Allah Almighty shows all people the good and the evil. The
          other is the helping or supporting guidance (al-ma`unah) by which He
          Almighty helps and supports those who believe in Him.

          If you are convinced
          with the showing guidance and become a believer in Allah, He Almighty will ease
          the orders of Shari`ah for you so that you may greatly love them and happily
          perform them.

          It was narrated that
          the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to say to Bilal, about
          prayer, “Comfort us with it, O, Bilal.” (Abu Dawud)

          So, those who believe
          in Him, deserve to be helped and supported by His guidance of help (ma`unah).
          As for those who disbelieve in Him rejecting His guidance, they do not deserve
          His support or help. Instead, He leaves them to their hard hearts that lead them
          to be astray by their own will and desire.

          Almighty knows best.

            If Allah wanted everyone to believe in him he would have it that way by default, but he has given his creation a choice and free will and he has spoken through the prophets, he will not refuse anyone who seeks him and he will not misguide his creations, Adam was the first creation that fell and followed his desires turning his back on God, by listening to the evil one. God didn’t want to misguide him he only allows it. It’s up to us to choose so choose wisely. For instance islam teaches that God saved Jesus from the crucifixion by swaping him for someone else, isn’t this misguiding the people who supposedly witnessed the wrong person being crucified? I don’t know about you but would God deliberately misguide his people? The misguiding isn’t from God it’s from the scandalous, from the one who doesn’t want man near God. That’s just my simple opinion.

          2. My brother in humanity , I appreciate the thought that went into your opinion,

            We as humans do have a choice , as this is part of our test. We must accept that we are not capable of fully understanding the mystery and wisdom behind the work of our creator. As this would be simlar to trying to teach an baby a phd in physics.

            We then must ultimatelyt trust the word of God.

            There is enough evidence evn in the bible to prove that jesus was not crucified.

            Ahmed Deedat showed this in his book “crucifixtion or crucifiction” see brief outline in the link below.


            also we choose if we want Allah’s guidance or not.

            “And whoever forgets to remember Me then verily he will live a harsh life. And on the day of judgement he will say “Oh My Lord, why did you bring me back on the day of judgement blind even tho I was able to see before?” and
            Allah will say “you acted blind to my signs and forgot them so I brought you back the same way.”

            – Surat Taha

            “Whoever forgets Allah, Allah will make him forget himself, and blinds his heart.”

            — Imam Ali (R.A)

            i hope this info helps you ,

            Remember Allah can forgive all sins except association with him any partners as he is the one and only God.

            So as long as you believe in one God , and all his messengers including Mhammed, all other sins can be forgiven .

            If you were a non believer and you then believe and declare La illah illah lah wa muhammahan rasullilah, all previous sins will be forgiven and you will be granted a place in Jannah. How high a place and how soon you get there will be based upon the effort you make in this world, and the mercy that Allah will have on you. All our obedience and effort will be to beg and gain Allah’s mercy on us.
            As no one deserves the favout that id promised by Allah through his own actions alone.
            May Allah guide us and save us through his mercy, as he is the most mercifull.
            May Allah have mercy on us all.

            Maborlz …Did we read the same stories??
            I think it was Eve who listened to that snake in the grass … and like me, Adam couldn’t refuse a Lady. (within ‘Reason’, of course; which wasn’t known until the apple was bitten )
            If ‘HUMAN’ was ‘innocent’ until something which God had obviously created was eaten, why the hell are ONLY all the women suffering for that today?? Hmmmm???? Wasn’t that an ‘equal opportunity’ moment? Eve taught ‘sharing’, and you just dump all over her.
            It really is difficult to believe Eve took a bite, then looking at Adam decided to share.
            If she had really had any instant smarts given by the apple, she would have said: ‘Wow. That’s a penis? I’m gonna keep that on display for ME forever, and Adam can just keep eating in the garden for strength … while trying to figure out why this thing goes up and down whenever I want it to.’ But no, Eve decided to share.
            BUT, I imagine if she had not.
            There may have been a Queen of Sheeba, and a Cleopatra … but no Moses, Jesus or Muhammad trying to mess around with what women really want to do … with their hair … or cooking …. OR ANY of our penises … THINK ABOUT THAT !!!!
            Well, you got the knowledge … but maybe only a bit of the wisdom … and now we all suffer. BUT WHY can’t you make it a little less aggravating ????
            Really, that snake paid for it with the leg-chops.

            I dont know about you 5th, but these days i dont see too many woman suffering, its more like the guys are the ones paying for it. Lip jobs, Boob jobs, face lifts, buttock implants, botox, lipo who’s paying for this stuff? The poor bastards working their bums off while the ladies are out and about after they drop the kids off at the all day play centre’s. Clueless cleopatra and the queen of sheeba have nothing on today’s girls.

            Hohohohohoho …. You grabbed the wrong country. 😉
            Or, maybe, work in an office-building in a concrete jungle…. self-confidence can die there.
            (How they can drink the coffee after ballooning the lips is beyond me.)
            Being Canadian, I avoided most of the stylish ‘make-overs’. Met REAL women.
            Our women know how to put a worm on a hook, and light a campfire. Long nails don’t survive. Everyone knows what a snow-shovel is. I made sure the daughter can change a car-tire too. Taught her about ‘leverage’ … even if she uses it on me sometimes. Hahahahahhahaa ……
            Have you seen the women in the ‘Axe-Throwing’ competitions?? MMMmmmmmmm
            And a VERY Happy New One To you too, Mab. :-))))

            By the way, have you ever had a full-body Salt Scrub, Mud-Wrap, and Massage over a few hours in a Spa? You don’t have to change anything about the body to get self-confidence into the mind … AND be willing to let a woman take it over. ;-))) YOU TOO, can enjoy. (once in a while, adventure into the concrete jungles can be ‘enlightening’ – avoid excess)

  2. There was no Assad, Daesh, ISIS, ISIL, Islamic State , Hezbollah, Ayatollah regimes , Bin Laden, Taliban or Israel when he though of converting

  3. Winston Churchill:
    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!
    Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia
    in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many
    countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods
    of commerce and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the
    Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and
    refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan
    law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as
    a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the
    faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

    Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion
    paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde
    force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant
    and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising
    fearless warriors at every step, and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the
    strong arms of science, the science against which it (Islam) has vainly struggled,
    the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
