O claimants of freedom, until when the mockery of Islam & the Prophet?

All praise is due to Allaah, Lord of the Worlds; May peace and blessings be upon the one who was sent as a mercy for mankind.

We were recently made aware by the world media of a film which was directed in America by a director called Sam Bacile[1], this film attacks Islaam by describing it as a cancer, and that the Prophet Muhammad (may peace & blessings be upon him) was fake, his companions as being stupid and that Islaam is a religion of compulsion.

Indeed I see it compulsory upon myself and upon every Muslim – according to each and everyone’s ability and responsibility – to stand in front of this attack upon the religion of Islaam and the Messenger of Allaah, the Prophet of guidance and mercy – may the blessings and salutations of my Lord be upon him.

The entire world should know that according to us Muslims, the Prophet Muhammad (may peace & blessings be upon him) has a revered place in the religion of Islaam and that the obligation to love him has been stated in many verses of the Noble Qur’aan.

From amongst them is the saying of Allaah (the Most High):

{ Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah , then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful} [03:31]

Also the saying of Allaah:

{Say, [O Muhammad], “If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your relatives, wealth which you have obtained, commerce wherein you fear decline, and dwellings with which you are pleased are more beloved to you than Allah and His Messenger and jihad in His cause, then wait until Allah executes His command. And Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people.”} [09:24]

From the greatest manifestations of love towards the Prophet (may peace & blessings be upon him) and the greatest signs of sincerity in this love is that it entails defending his Sunnah (his life teachings) because it is revelation which no falsehood can ever enter into it from any direction whatsoever.

Also, from the greatest obligations in the religion of Islaam is to prevent those people who target him, who mock, the hypocrites and the already-destroyed people who always seek to attack the sacred Prophetic Sunnah and insult him (may peace & blessings be upon him).

It has been narrated by Tameem ad-Daaree that the Prophet (may peace & blessings be upon him) said,

The religion is sincere advice

so we said, “to whom O Messenger of Allaah?”

He replied,

To Allaah, His Book, His Messenger, the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk. [2]

From the perfection of ‘sincere advice’ towards the Prophet (may peace & blessings be upon him) is:

• To have complete faith in his Prophethood and the message of Muhammad (may peace & blessings be upon him)

• To aid him during his life as well as after his death. So whoever was present in his lifetime was obligated to aid him, and whoever was not present with him is still obligated to aid him; that is by having complete faith in him, following his Sunnah, abiding by his commandments and avoiding his prohibitions.

This ‘sincere advice to the Prophet (may peace & blessings be upon him)’ also entails striving to spread the Islamic Sharee’ah, calling to it, applying it, acting according to its manners and what it has ordered as well as acting according to whatever the two sources of revelation (the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Prophet) directs us towards; and finally warning against everything that harms him and his religion.

Thus, aiding the Sunnah and defending the Prophet (may peace & blessings be upon him) is from the greatest rites of Allaah (the Most High). Many of our scholars have penned in their writings the dangers of mocking the Prophet (may peace & blessings be upon him); consider, from amongst these books, the book of Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah: ‘As-Saarim Al-Maslool ‘alaa Shaatim Ar-Rasool’ (Lit. The Drawn sword against the one who insults the Messenger).

This film contains many types of evil in it; it combines between describing Islaam as being a cancer, the Prophet being a fake, his followers being idiots and that Islaam is a religion of compulsion.

Along with slanders and lies, this is belittling the feelings of the Muslims and their sensitivities throughout the whole world. Our religion – the religion of Islaam – is a religion of tolerance, mercy and ease. Our Prophet Muhammad (may peace & blessings be upon him) is the purest of all of mankind, he is the one sent as a mercy to mankind.

Where do you therefore stand from the ‘glamorous’ call to ‘human rights’?
Is it not from ‘human rights’ that a person should not be mocked and belittled due to what he believes?

Or is it so that the Muslims in different parts of the world are not considered as being humans to whom human rights apply?

Look at yourselves and how you treat animals, and then compare this to your treatment of the Muslims.

Where do you stand from protecting the feelings of the Muslims and respecting their beliefs?

Is it not appropriate that you include all those who mock the religion of Islaam and its Prophet and promote it, as being of ‘terrorism,’ and that international resolutions are made against it because it also promotes terrorism?

Since all of the international resolutions call to blocking everything which gives rise to terrorism, does this not include ALL avenues that give rise to terrorism – in all their different types and appearances?

No doubt, that this [film] is from the greatest promoters of terrorism, and it is more dangerous than financial support because [this film] will strongly cause terrorism.

Indeed the world organisations emphasise the importance of respecting the Messengers, respecting the heavenly religions and respecting other people. Yet this alleged ‘freedom’ from some people is used only to attack the religion of Islaam, to mock the Messenger of Allaah and to deny the rights of other people.

We, the Muslims, direct a call to the non-Muslims; that they should adorn their eyes and thoughts by finding out about the reality of the Prophet (may peace & blessings be upon him) from his characteristics and manners, by reading the books that contain the merits and characteristics of the Prophet that the people of Islaam have written in the books of the Sunnah and life accounts.

If you then refuse, then read what a number of just people from amongst the intellectuals of mankind – and trusted ones even with the non-Muslims – have written regarding the Prophet of mercy and guidance, and also the people from the other religions who bore witness to his noble manners and many virtues.

Those who mock and insult should know that Allaah has taken it upon himself to protect His religion and His message. The mockery of those who mock will not hurt the Prophet (may peace & blessings be upon him), neither will the insults of those who insult. Indeed

Allaah has sufficed him in all of this, just as He (may He be glorified) said:

{Truly, we will suffice you [O Muhammad] against those who mock} [15:95]

The great scholar Shaykh ibn Sa’adi (may Allaah have Mercy upon him) said in explaining this verse, ‘and this is a promise from Allaah to His Messenger (may peace & blessings be upon him) that those who mock him will never harm him, and that Allaah will punish them with any type of punishment that he wills. Indeed Allaah (the Most High) did this; nobody has ever outwardly insulted the Messenger of Allaah (may peace & blessings be upon him) except that Allaah destroyed that person, and killed him with a most severe type of killing.’

I counsel myself and my Muslim brothers to have wisdom and intelligence in dealing with these vicious attacks and insults against Islaam and the Prophet of mercy. These [attacks] must be dealt with by increasing efforts – in all languages – in calling to Allaah, explaining the religion of Islaam and its pure reality, and we should also explain the authentic Sunnah of the Prophet to the world – along with showing the tolerance of our religion and the mercy of our Prophet to the mankind.

We – the Muslims – should also understand that killing the non-Muslims who are under contract or have been guaranteed safety, is from those matter which contradict the Sharee’ah. This is due to what the Prophet (may peace & blessings be upon him) said,

whoever kills a person under covenant will never smell the fragrance of Paradise, despite its fragrance being smelt from the distance of forty years [of travelling][3].

Also, It has been narrated by Umm Haanee, the daughter of Abi Talib who said, “I went to the Messenger of Allaah, the year of the conquest of Mecca and found him taking a bath and his daughter Faatimah was screening him. I greeted him.

He asked,

‘Who is she?

I replied, ‘I am Um Hani bint Abi Talib.’

He said,

Welcome! O Um Hani.

When he finished his bath he stood up and prayed eight Units of Prayer while wearing a single garment wrapped around his body. When he finished I said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, my brother has told me that he will kill a person whom I gave shelter and that person is so and so the son of Hubaira.’

The Prophet said,

We shelter the person whom you have sheltered

Um Ham added, ‘And that was before noon'[4]

From the matters that contain no doubt – along with what has been stated previously regarding breaking covenants and that no individual bears the blame due the sin of another – that it is not from wisdom nor from intelligence to kill those people who have been given a covenant, nor [is it from wisdom and intelligence] to attack the international embassies merely due to those who mock being associated with them. This is due to the potential harms and how it prevents the Call to Islaam.

Indeed the Prophet (may peace & blessings be upon him) said,

Kindness is not found in anything except that it to its beauty, and it is not taken away from anything except it makes it repugnant [5]

I supplicate to Allaah through his beautiful names and lofty attributes that he elevates his religion, repels the plot of those who plot against the Muslims and their religionMay the salutations of Allaah be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and companions

إلى متى يا أدعياء الحريات الاستهزاء بدين الإسلام وبالنبي محمدٍ صلى الله عليه وسلم ؟

المرجع: http://www.sunnah.org.sa/ar/home/association-news/3290-2012-09-13-17-04-16

الحمد لله رب العالمين، والصلاة والسلام على المبعوث رحمة للعالمين، وبعد:

فلقد طالعتنا وسائل الإعلام عن الفيلم الذي أعد في أمريكا من المخرج سام باسيل، والذي يهاجم الإسلام ووصفه بأنه سرطان، وأن النبي محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم مزيف وأن أتباعه حمقى وأن الإسلام دين كراهية.

وإني أرى لزاماَ عليَّ وعلى كل مسلمٍ أن يقف أمام هذا الهجوم على دين الإسلام ورسول الله.

نبي الهدى والرحمة – صلوات ربي وسلامه عليه – كلٌّ حسب طاقته ومسؤوليته.

ومما ينبغي أنْ يعلمه العالم كلّه أنَّ للنبي محمدٍ صلى الله عليه وسلم عندنا معشر المسلمين مكانة عظيمة في دين الإسلام، وأنَّ وجوب محبته في آياتٍ كثيرةٍ في القرآن الكريم، ومنها قول الله تعالى :

{قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ} [آل عمران:31]

ومنها قوله تعالى:

﴿ قُلْ إِنْ كَانَ آبَاؤُكُمْ وَأَبْنَاؤُكُمْ وَإِخْوَانُكُمْ وَأَزْوَاجُكُمْ وَعَشِيرَتُكُمْ وَأَمْوَالٌ اقْتَرَفْتُمُوهَا وَتِجَارَةٌ تَخْشَوْنَ كَسَادَهَا وَمَسَاكِنُ تَرْضَوْنَهَا أَحَبَّ إِلَيْكُمْ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَجِهَادٍ فِي سَبِيلِهِ فَتَرَبَّصُوا حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ اللَّهُ بِأَمْرِهِ وَاللَّهُ لا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْفَاسِقِينَ ﴾ [التوبة:24]

وإنَّ من أعظمِ مظاهرِ المحبَّةِ للنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وأبرزِ دلالاتِ صدقِها أنها تستلزمُ الذَّبَّ عن سُنَّته، لأنها وحيٌ لا يأتيه الباطل من بين يديه ولا من خلفه.

كما أنّ التَّصَدِّي للمغرِضينَ والمستهزئين والمنافقينَ والمنهزِمِينَ الذين يترصَّدون للسنة النبوية الشريفةِ ويسخرون منه صلى الله عليه وسلم من أعظم الواجبات في دين الإسلام.

وإن من تمام النصيحة للنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم -كما في حديث تميم الداري رضي الله عنه الذي يرويه الإمام مسلمٌ في صحيحه أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال:((الدينُ النصيحةُ)) ، قلنا: لمن يا رسول الله ؟ قال: (( لله ولكتابهِ ولرسولِهِ ولأئمة المسلمين وعامَّتِهم )) – الإيمان بنبوَّة ورسالة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم، ونصرته حياً وميتاً، فمن كان في حياته كان واجباً عليه أن ينصرَه، ومن لم يدرِكْهُ وجب عليه أن ينصرَه، وذلك بالإيمان به صلى الله عليه وسلم وباتباع سنَّته وإطاعةِ أوامرِه واجتناب نواهيه.

ومن لوازمِ النصحِ له صلى الله عليه وسلم العملُ على نشرِ الشريعة الإسلامية والدعوة إليها وتحكيمها ، والتمسُّكِ بآدابها، وبما أمرت به ووجهت إليه من تعاليم هذين الوحيين ،كتابَ الله تعالى وسنَّةَ نبيه صلى الله عليه وسلم، والتحذير من كل ما يسيء إليه وإلى دينه.

ولذا فإنَّ نصر السنة والذب عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم من تعظيم شعائر الله تعالى، ولقد سطَّر أئمتنا الكثير في بيان خطر الاستهزاء بالنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في مؤلفاتهم، وانظر من تلك الكتب كتاب شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية “الصارم المسلول على شاتم الرسول.

وإن هذا الفلم قد جمع بين أنواع من الشرور، إذ جمع بين وصف الإسلام بأنه سرطان، وأن النبي محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم مزيف، وأن أتباعه حمقى، وأن الإسلام دين كراهية.

وهذا فيه مع الافتراء والكذب احتقار لمشاعر المسلمين وأحاسيسهم في العالم كله، وديننا دبن الإسلام دين سماحة ورحمة ويسر، ونبينا محمدٌ صلى الله عليه وسلم أطهر البشرية جمعاء وأزكاها، وهو المبعوث رحمة للعالمين.

فأين أنتم من الدعاوى البراقة التي تنادي بحقوق الإنسان؟

أليس من حقوق الإنسان عدم السخرية و الاستهزاء بما يعتقده؟

أم أن المسلمين في أنحاء العالم عندكم ليسوا من بني الإنسان ؟ و بالتالي لا تشملهم الحقوق!

بل انظروا لأنفسكم كيف تعاملون الحيوان ؟!!!

ثم قارنوا بتعاملكم أين أنتم من مراعاة مشاعر المسلمين واحترام معتقداتهم ؟

أليس بالجدير بأن يدرج من يسخر بدين الإسلام ونبيه ويشجِّع على ذلك الإرهاب بأن تتخذ ضده القرارات الدولية لأنه مغذٍ للإرهاب ؟

ثم ما دامت الشعارات الدولية تنادي بتجفيف موارد الإرهاب، أليس من مهامها تجفيف كلّ موارده بأنواعها وأشكالها ؟

ولا شك ولا ريب أن هذا المورد من أشد موارده، وهو أخطر بكثير من الموارد المالية،لأنها من أعظم الدوافع له.

وإن منظمات العالم تؤكد على احترام الرسل ، وعلى احترام الشرائع السماوية ، واحترام الآخرين، ولذا فإنَّ الحرية المزعومة من بغض المرضى فيها انتهاكٌ لدين الإسلام، وسخريةٌ برسول الله وإخلالٌ بحقوق الآخرين.

وإننا معشر المسلمين نوجه دعوةً إلى غير المسلمين بأن يمتِّعوا أعينهم وفكرهم بالاطلاع على الحقائق من خُلُقِهِ وصفاته صلى الله عليه وسلم، من خلال الكتب في شمائل النبي وصفاته مما كتبه أهل الإسلام في كتب السنة والسيرة.

وإن أبيتم فاقرؤوا ما كتبه عددٌ من أهل الإنصاف من عقلاء البشر ومثقفيه من غير المسلمين عن نبيِّ الرحمة والهدى صلى الله عليه وسلم من أهل الملل الأخرى ممن شهدوا له بمكارم الأخلاق والفضائل الجمَّة.

ليعلم المستهزئون وأمثالهم أنَّ الله عز وجل متكفلٌ بحفظ دينه وحامٍ لحمى رسالته، ولن تضير نبيه صلى الله عليه وسلم سخرية الساخرين واستهزاء المستهزئين، فقد كفاه الله ذلك كله، كما قال سبحانه: ﴿ إنا كفيناك المستهزئين ﴾

وقد قال الشيخ العلًّامة ابن سعدي رحمه الله في تفسيرها: “وهذا وعدٌ من الله لرسوله صلى الله عليه وسلم أنْ لا يضرّه المستهزئون، وأنْ يكفيهم الله إياهم بما شاء من أنواع العقوبة، وقد فعل الله تعالى، فإنَّه ما تظاهر أحدٌ بالاستهزاء برسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إلَّا أهلكه الله وقتله شر قتلةٍ.”

وإني أوصي نفسي وإخواني المسلمين بالحكمة والعقل في مقابلة هذه الهجمة الشرسة وأضرابها على الإسلام ونبي الرحمة، وأن تعالج بمضاعفة الجهود في الدعوة والبيان لدين الإسلام وحقيقته الناصعة، ونبين للعالم سنة النبي الصحيحة، مع تبيان سماحة ديننا ورحمة نبينا للعالمين، بكلّ اللغات.

كما ينبغي أن ندرك معشر المسلمين أنه من المخالفات الشرعية قتل المعاهدين والمستأمنين لما في البخاري وغيره أن النَّبِيّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ : ((مَنْ قَتَلَ مُعَاهَدًا لَمْ يَرَحْ رَائِحَةَ الْجَنَّةِ وَإِنَّ رِيحَهَا تُوجَدُ مِنْ مَسِيرَةِ أَرْبَعِينَ عَامًا.))

وفيه أيضا: عن أَمّ هَانِئٍ بِنْتَ أَبِي طَالِبٍ أنها قالت :ذَهَبْتُ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَامَ الْفَتْحِ فَوَجَدْتُهُ يَغْتَسِلُ وَفَاطِمَةُ ابْنَتُهُ تَسْتُرُهُ فَسَلَّمْتُ عَلَيْهِ فَقَالَ مَنْ هَذِهِ فَقُلْتُ أَنَا أُمُّ هَانِئٍ بِنْتُ أَبِي طَالِبٍ فَقَالَ ((مَرْحَبًا بِأُمِّ هَانِئٍ)) فَلَمَّا فَرَغَ مِنْ غَسْلِهِ قَامَ فَصَلَّى ثَمَانِيَ رَكَعَاتٍ مُلْتَحِفًا فِي ثَوْبٍ وَاحِدٍ فَلَمَّا انْصَرَفَ قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ زَعَمَ ابْنُ أُمِّي أَنَّهُ قَاتِلٌ رَجُلاً قَدْ أَجَرْتُهُ فُلاَنُ بْنُ هُبَيْرَةَ ، فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ((قَدْ أَجَرْنَا مَنْ أَجَرْتِ يَا أُمَّ هَانِئٍ)) قَالَتْ أُمُّ هَانِئٍ وَذَاكَ ضُحًى.

ومما لا شك فيه – علاوة على ما سبق من نقض العهد ومن باب ولا تزر وازرة وزر أخرى- فليس من الحكمة والعقل قتل المعاهدين، ولا مهاجمة سفارات دول من ينتسب إليها المستهزئون لما في ذلك من مفاسد وصدّ عن الدعوة للإسلام، وفي الصحيح عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه قال: ((إِنَّ الرِّفْقَ لاَ يَكُونُ فِى شَىْءٍ إِلاَّ زَانَهُ وَلاَ يُنْزَعُ مِنْ شَىْءٍ إِلاَّ شَانَهُ))

والله أسأل بأسمائه الحسنى وصفاته العليا أن يُعلي دينه ، وأن يرد كيد الكائدين للمسلمين ودينهم في نحورهم

والحمد لله رب العالمين
