Prince Charles learning Arabic language to read Quran

March 14:

The Prince of Wales has revealed he is having Arabic lessons.

Charles told guests at a reception in Qatar that the language "goes in one ear and out the other", but an aide disclosed that he has been having private tuition for more than six months.

The Prince's new skill could help his desire to encourage dialogue between different religions, as he would be able to read the Quran in its original form.

Charles was in Doha at the Qatar-UK Alumni Network, for Qataris who have attended British universities, when he told a group of guests: "You all speak such good English."

He is in the Middle East on an official trip with the Duchess of Cornwall.

Dr Mohammed Bin Saleh al Sada, chairman of the association and Qatar's energy minister, asked the Prince if he spoke any Arabic.

He replied: "I tried to learn it once but I gave up. It goes in one ear and out the other."

Dr al Sada told him: "It's never too late to learn."

An aide confirmed afterwards that Charles has been taking lessons.

He also speaks French, some German, and has also had tuition in Welsh.

In 2010, Charles urged the world to follow Islamic 'spiritual principles' in order to protect the environment during a speech to Islamic Studies students at Oxford University.

He has also recited from the English translation of the Quran while talking to other Muslims around the world.

Later the Prince had a private audience with Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, the second wife and official consort of the Emir of Qatar.

She is the head of the Qatar Foundation, which works to improve education, science and community development in the country, but is best known in Europe as the sponsor of Barcelona FC.

The Duchess went on to meet a group of Qatari Bedouin women, who work for Vodafone selling mobiles to women within their tribes.

Because it is forbidden for tribal women to talk to strangers, the women can only sell phones within their tribes.

What is this ?

There is something fishy in the news report,Where did Prince charles said that he is learning Arabic, nowhere, what he said is , he once tried learning arabic which goes through one year and out from the other,where did he mention that he was learning Arabid. News report also says that one of his aide later on clarified that Prince charles was taking tutions to learn the language. Who is the aide who said that,how reliable he is, how can we trust what he said is correct, it may be a PR exercise to please the Host nation Qataris,or plainly it may be some wise guys funda to gain some brownie points. On an unconfirmed and undisclosed aide it was decided that Prince charles is learning Arabic,ridiculous isn`t, why are we giving so much of importance for this news, Prince Charles is a spent force,He is good only for wining and dining, visiting countries for sight seeing and enjoying their hospitalities, he is neighter a friend or a foe of Muslims. His learning Arabic does not make much difference.
