As-salamu alaykum السلام عليكم My dear Muslims
Many of us are baffled about the horrific incident in Paris. What I want us all to understand is the correct Islamic teaching regarding the issue of “mocking the prophet Muhammad (PBUH)”.
“When you see them engaged in vain discourse about our signs, turn away from them unless they engage in a different subject.” (6:68) Quran
Muslims are advised to simply withdraw from such a discourse, and join the gathering back, if they happen to change the subject. Certainly that means we’re not even supposed to feel hatred towards them. Let alone kill them. Remember, people can be easily lead to believe something is the truth but, it is our job to go out there and educate others and ourself from authentic sources in order for ignorance to be abolished. It’s time like these that show the importance in unity, love and kindness.
May we all have a moment to think about the family and friends of the victims. May Allah SWT give them mercy and burden their pains. Ameen.
Wishing you all a good night or day.
Signing off. Allah Hafiz xox
