Historian claims British Queen Elizabeth II is the direct descendant of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). They have established a family tree that shows a direct link between the British Monarchy and Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The Queen’s direct ancestors include kings, dukes, earls and even actresses.
Historians allege that her link with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) can be traced back to more than 40 generations. A Moroccan newspaper has claimed to trace her lineage back to Prophet Muhammad’s daughter Bibi Fatima (R.A).
Many European kings and queens may come to mind in regard to the lineage of the British Queen but Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) does not. A group of historians, however, have stated that the discovery is nothing new as this was already discovered back in 1968.
Similar theories were first published in 1968 by Burke’s Peerage, a British authority on royal pedigrees. “It is little known by the British people that the blood of Mohammed flows in the veins of the Queen,” Harold B. Brooks-Baker, publishing director of Burke’s, wrote at the time to then prime minister Margaret Thatcher.
The old theory traced her link back to Muslim Kings and Queen of Spain and through them to Prophet Muhammad. The claims, however, have been disputed by various historians but the genealogical records of early- medieval Spain confirm the claim that has been supported by Grand Mufti of Egypt.
They claimed the Queen descends from a Muslim Princess Zaida, who fled her hometown Seville in the 11th century before converting to Christianity. Princess Zaida was the fourth wife of King Al-Mu’tamidi bn Abbad of Seville.
She bore him a son Sancho, whose descendant later married ‘Earl of Cambridge’. Abdel hamid Al Aouni, the historian who wrote an article for Moroccan newspaper, has backed the claims made by the Brooks-Baker, and said he was right about the British Royal family. He said Zaida “builds a bridge between our two religions and kingdoms”. The Buckingham Palace so far has not responded to these claims.
