In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Punishment of Blasphemy in Quraan
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre
No Muslim is a Muslim if he/she doesn’t feel pain/hurt due to Blasphemy of any of the Prophets/Messengers of Allah including Ibrahim (Abraham), Musa (Moses), Isa (Jesus), Dawood (David) and Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Them). Laws of Makka al Mukarrama and Al Madina Al Monawara where disbelievers are not allowed to visit or live cannot be applied to rest of the Islaamic Countries. Similarly Laws of Islaamic Countries cannot be applied to rest of the world. People are not allowed to take laws into their own hand. Violence is hurting Islaam very badly. It is becoming extremely difficult to do Dawah in Non-Muslim countries after any single violence by a single Muslim. A wise approach could be to reply in the media, to participate in peaceful demonstrations, or take legal actions seeking punishment or compensation and even boycott goods or apply political pressure since it’s a matter of personal choice.
Freedom of Speech does not mean hurting the feelings of others and in this case 1.5 Billions of Muslims around the world, so there must be checks and balances with tolerances to co-exist in our Global Village. There is law for many things but there is no law for hurting 1.5 Billions of Muslims feelings is unjust, double standard and is not acceptable to Muslims. Is there any law for hurting peoples feeling who are living in minority. Positive dialogues must be established including live on Media (e.g. TV) where people can ask direct questions from scholars.
Bullying can hurt someone so severely that one might commit suicide or kill others. In Ontario, Canada, there is law known as Bill-14, for Anti-Bullying Act in school, and the principal may suspend or expel any student found guilty of bullying a student. Now the world is joining together in a Global Village and is learning to live together. Everybody must have right to live peacefully without being hurt including by bullying. It is necessary to pass a strict International Law to prevent this of happening again.
Muslims are strongly urged to organized true peaceful rally, writing articles and presenting to Religious & Political Leaders, Countries National Assemblies and United Nations for such issues of Blasphemy of any of the Prophets/Messengers of Allah including Ibrahim (Abraham), Musa (Moses), Isa (Jesus), Dawood (David) and Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Them).
Currently Muslims actions in Muslim Countries are hurting Islaam badly due to un-Islaamic behavior, since they are not taking guidance from the Quraan. Forget about blasphemy against Allah, his Prophets (Peace-Be-Upon-Them) and Sahaba (Raḍiyul-Laahu-Anhu), even if someone says anything about Religious Scholars (Faqui, Peer, Molvi or Mufti etc.), we are just so ready to KILL, KILL and KILL again and destroy our own economy with our own hands and put Billions of Dollars of losses in just few hours, which might have taken ages to established. This could be Shaitaan’s another Trap to destroy Muslims economy. True Muslim’s actions must be to build this world heavenly likely instead of destroying it. Forgiveness is the key to start with, and keeping in mind we are living in one global village and we need to apply wisdom to prove that Islaam is truly a Peaceful Religion/Deen.
Those who do unjust including bribing, cheating, unjust favoring, looting, steeling, robbing, killing or punishing innocents instead of actual criminals etc. are clearly declared as disbelievers in the Quraan, (Ref: Al_Quraan_005_044, 045, 047).
Blasphemy and these types of slogans are not new and many times, Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) was subjected to verbal and physical humiliation. He (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) was narrowly escaped assassination by migrating to Medina along with Hazrat Abu Bakar (Raḍiyul-Laahu-Anhu). He was accused of FORGERY, (Ref: Al_Quraan_021.005), and MAD/CRAZY/POSSESSED, (Ref: Al_Quraan_068.002). His personal reaction, as also the reaction of all his devoted Companions (Raḍiyul-Laahu-Anhu), while both in and out of power, was impeccable adherence to the Quraanic teachings.
Punishment for Physical Abuse/Crime in the Quraan: The Quraan sets strict limits on punishment for any and every physical abuse/crime, i.e. tit for tat, e.g., eye for eye, teeth for teeth and wounds for similar wounds as its maximum punishment, while recommends to forgive to set a role model for others, (Ref: Al_Quraan_002.178, 004.092-093, 005.032, 005.045, 062.040, 028.054). The honorable ministers and lawyers must have clear knowledge of the Quraanic directives on crime and its punishment.
