Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall (TRH) visited Husaini Masjid, the mosque for the Dawoodi Bohra Muslims, in Northholt on Wednesday morning. They met with Prince Qaidjoher Ezzuddin, son of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, spiritual leader of Dawoodi Bohra Muslims worldwide.

TRH saw an exhibition covering aspects of the community's contribution to British life, particularly in medicine and business, and also their philanthropic work world-wide, including the restoration of heritage mosques in Egypt and Iraq, a state-of-the-art hospital in India and water sourcing and coffee farming projects in Yemen.

TRH examined some Fatimid features in the prayer area of the mosque complex, saw a children's classroom in the madrasah and from the prayer area, viewed a tree planted by His Royal Highness during an earlier visit in 1996.

In his welcoming speech, Prince Ezzuddin said:

"Since 1993, you have made significant statements in support of Islam and the values it espouses. It is heart-warming for our community and all Muslims residing in UK, that the Heir to the Throne of the country they live in should value their religion and traditions in the way that you have.

It is an inclusive and sympathetic approach, not born out of a political need or even a sense of responsibility as the future monarch, but a wish to seek out the best that the rich diversity of your subjects can offer. As a token of our gratitude for this, and to commemorate your visit today, we have published a compilation of your speeches on Islam."

The Prince of Wales praised the Bohra community for their contribution and expertise in business and said, "I am impressed by you what you have achieved here."

He also said, "But most importantly, I cannot applaud enough the invaluable example of your belief that patriotism is part of faith. This makes an enormous contribution to modern British society."

TRH were given a number of gifts including a traditional shawl and a Muslim cap.

The Dawoodi Bohra Muslims in UK are almost all British citizens. They have purpose-built mosques in London, Manchester and Bradford.
