This answer comes from a secular perspective; if it is out of place, let me know and I'll remove it. But I offer it anyway.
Offense has the interesting characteristic in that it is, quite literally, an imaginary thing: in only exists to the observer - it is not a concrete thing by itself. Add religion into that mix and we have ...
I think this photo will speak more than words
*In response to the abusive film about the Holy Prophet Muhammad upon him blessings and peace, “Discover Islam UK” in London distributed more than 110,000 copies of a translation of the Qur’an And the life of the Prophet Mohammed for the citizens of London.
The first thing we must do..
The first thing we must do is ask Allah for forgiveness.
I say this because, the people that insult the Prophet (pbuh) have never met him or seen him BUT they know him through our actions. So we have failed to deliver the message of Islam for them to insult someone they have never seen or met.
These insults will not change ...
Although Islam religion of mercy but this mercy is not for all equal. Quran says: (the verse is long so I mention only related part)
مُّحَمَّدٌ رَّسُولُ اللَّـهِ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ أَشِدَّاءُ عَلَى
الْكُفَّارِ رُحَمَاءُ بَيْنَهُمْ...
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are forceful
against the disbelievers, ...
is anyone who tries to claim that it's not perfection directly attacking Allah and insulting 2bn Muslims?
There are roughly 7 billion people on this planet. I could re-phrase that statement as:
is anyone who tries to claim that it is perfection directly insulting 5bn non-Muslims?
The answer to both is simply: "no". We just disagree on a point of ...
These are three example verses of the poem that are considered dangerously close to Shirk or even Shirk itself:-
O noblest of creation, I have no one but you to turn to except you when major calamity strikes.
You don't need to be Salafi to see a problem with this verse. Fatiha itself is enough to tell you that a Muslim only asks for help from Allah:...
Actually the Quran does not contain any sort of "blasphemy" law. These are derivations drawn by early Muslim scholars from the Torah.
"And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall certainly stone him; as well the stranger, as the home-born, when he blasphemeth the Name, shall be put to death. (...
(Ahl al-Sunnah View)
Its the responsibility of the state to handle this as blasphemy against the Prophet is a punishable crime under Shariah.
There can be two cases of a person who does this:
The person is a Muslim subject of the Islamic state
The person is a non-Muslim subject of the Islamic state (Dhimmi)
In the first case: there is consensus among ...
Before we consult ahadith, we will have to see what Quran says on this Topic. After all, a book that tells you how to clean yourself (method of wudu) can not neglect to tell you when you are allowed to take a human life.
Quran is full of disrespectful words that were being used for the prophet at the time. For example we see in Surat Furqan:
First of all the Qur'an in the Muslim belief is the orally transmitted word of God (Allah):
Rather, the Qur'an is distinct verses [preserved] within the breasts of those who have been given knowledge. And none reject Our verses except the wrongdoers. (29:49)
And it is and it tells the truth:
Indeed, those who disbelieve in the message after it has ...
Blasphemy is a punishable offense in Islamic law:
وإن نكثوا أيمانهم من بعد عهدهم وطعنوا في دينكم فقاتلوا أئمة الكفر إنهم لا أيمان لهم لعلهم ينتهون
And if they break their oaths after their treaty and defame your religion, then fight the leaders of disbelief, for indeed, there are no oaths [sacred] to them; [fight them that] they might cease.
All perfect praise be to Allah
There is a fundamental difference in both of these words. criticism and blasphemy. It must be known that all people who were not Muslim in the era of prophet Muhammad SAWW used to criticize Islam and prophet, but they all were not beheaded, only a few of them which were mocking, abusing or doing vilification about Islam or ...
The Qur'an is ordinarily considered perfect. After all, it's a miracle from Allah. Allah states We have not neglected in the Register a thing (Qur'an 6:38) and We will be its guardian (Qur'an 15:9).
Depending on the nature of the claim, denying the Qur'an's perfect nature in a tangible way (such as asserting that it contains errors) could be considered to ...
is anyone who tries to claim that it's not perfection directly
attacking Allah and insulting 2bn Muslims?
No it is not. There is very clear difference between insult and difference of opinion. Not only the non Muslims but we Muslims should also have to understand this difference. For example the movie clip "Innocence of Muslims" is clearly insult and ...
