Blasphemy at the Seat of the Caliphate

Written by Abu Jabir Abdullah Penabdul

Blasphemy at the Seat of the Caliphate

I begin with the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

Insulting our beloved Prophet SAW is A-NO-GO-AREA. Muslims and non-Muslims must be aware of this.

However, Mob action against one that is guilty of blasphemy is not Islamic.

If the door of mob action is generally opened in Islam then people will claim the lives of others at the slightest provocation. People could also be killed innocently. The ruler or the Judge or their representatives carry out the ruling once it’s proven beyond reasonable doubt.

As much as we stand by the rule that the ruler or the judge or their representatives are those to carry out the capital punishment for the one that insults or denigrates the personality of our beloved Prophet SAW we want the WHOLE WORLD to know that it is not a light matter to joke with.

Why would anyone deem it normal to insult the Prophet SAW? Of what benefit? Alas! Some non-Muslims are careless about this and it is a great matter in the sight of the Muslims and the Shariah. When we talk of tolerance, we should be circumspect about it.

The intoxicating effect of liberalism coupled with the arrogance of an ignorant mind and the lack of respect for what is sacred to us the Muslims are responsible for the blasphemy that some non-Muslims have taken as a past-time. We love the Prophet SAW more than ourselves.

Stop being insensitive to the sensitivity of others. DO NOT CONTEMPLATE INSULTING the Prophet ï·º. Allah prohibited us from insulting what others worship besides Him. This shows the world our standard. If everyone desists from insulting the Prophet we won’t be debating mob actions.

The most insensitive and irrational thing to do is to insult the Prophet that is most beloved to the Muslims. A Prophet whose love we are obliged to place above ours. No wise person will out of the blue attempt to do that. Prophet Muhammad ï·º is the paragon of Allah’s creations.

Government has to do something through strengthening and establishment of existing Laws to deter people from insulting our beloved Prophet SAW. I believe this will equally prevent mob actions.
