    Salaam all.

    Another potential issue a number of us could be facing or have already faced.

    I have just applied for British citizenship for my wife and the process involves a citizenship ceremony. In the ceremony from what I have read must say either of the following:

    The affirmation of allegiance
    I (name) do solemnly, sincerely and truly
    declare and affirm that on becoming a British
    citizen, I will be faithful and bear true
    allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the
    Second, her Heirs and Successors, according
    to law.
    I will give my loyalty to the United Kingdom and
    respect its rights and freedoms. I will uphold its
    democratic values. I will observe its laws
    faithfully and fulfil my duties and obligations as
    a British citizen.

    The oath of allegiance
    I (name) swear by almighty God that on
    becoming a British citizen, I will be faithful and
    bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen
    Elizabeth the Second, her Heirs and
    Successors, according to the law.
    I will give my loyalty to the United Kingdom and
    respect its rights and freedoms. I will uphold its
    democratic values. I will observe its laws
    faithfully and fulfil my duties and obligations as
    a British citizen

    My question would be would this allegiance be allowed? Would the respected Ulema who have chosen to reside in the UK have followed this process?

    JazakAllah Khair
