Muslims Mourn Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II was Britain’s longest-serving monarch with over 70 years on the throne. Since 1952, the world has gone through so many changes.

Yet, the Queen remained a poised, highly respected figure here in the UK and abroad, representing the sort of stability and guidance that every nation craves. That’s why her death has had such a profound impact on so many people’s lives; British Muslims are no different.

From organizations to individuals, there has been an outpour of sympathy and emotion. The Muslim Council of Britain led the charge saying that, “We remember how the Queen devoted her life to public service and sought unity among British communities.”

While the Association of British Muslims said, “We ask all people, regardless of background, to send their support, prayers, and thoughts to the Royal Family and offer their allegiance and support to His Majesty King Charles III.”

In my capacity, the Queen was the patron of my boarding school, Reeds, which she last visited in 2014 and generated such an emotional response from pupils at the time.

This is a reminder that very few command such respect in life, and those who do, when they pass, are indeed cherished.

True Leader

Suhail C, “Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II served the State and Nation in an exemplary way. She raised the profile of Monarchy while staying away from controversies. Her poise and grace as the Head of the State drew praise worldwide. She visited Pakistan in 1961 & 1997. Queen Elizabeth took the throne in 1952 when she was just 25 years old. She was crowned on 2nd June 1953 and advised no fewer than 15 British Prime Ministers, from Winston Churchill to Liz Truss. May the Queen Rest in Peace.”

Amber H, “Whatever you feel about the Royal Family, the loss of our Queen will be felt by many (including myself) and the ripple effect will land for some expectedly, and others almost by surprise. Personally, I feel it like a deep and heavy ache, unsettling – reminding me of other losses I have faced. The nation has lost a committed, loyal, and caring mother, sister, and aunt.”

Milton H, “RIP. The history she has witnessed and overseen the independence of former colonies and her stoicism in embracing NI peace in the face of personal loss. And to deal with all the scandals and private family challenges. At least appearing all the time calm and elegant. Remarkable daughter, sister, wife, mother, woman, and Queen.”

Noreen H, Inna lilahi wa inna ilahi raji’un (To God we belong, to God we return). May God have mercy on your soul Queen Elizabeth.”

Respecting every human being in life and death is a tradition established by Prophet Muhammad. When the funeral procession of a non-Muslim passed by him, he stood up. Some of his companions asked why he stood up for a non-Muslim, to which the Prophet replied, was he not a human being?

Compassion, kindness, love, consideration, and respect for all people is a tradition established by Prophet Muhammad and those who wish to follow his sunnah. They would have the dignity to stand up and respect the Queen, a woman who lived a truly profound life, impacting so many. Your majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, you will be missed.
