Closer to me than my mother

Written by on May 22, 2010 in u

The cartoonist Zapiro after insulting our beloved said, we must “get over it”. How would he feel if his mother was insulted. Naturally he would feel angry .It is not easy to get over it when someone you love  even more than your mother is insulted and blasphemed. It is blasphemous to  mock any prophet, be it Jesus(peace be upon him),Moses(peace be upon him), and worst of all God.

Our beloved does not need a psychiatrist, that insinuation is insulting to me. You can not put words in his mouth.

But to anyone that attacks our beloved  we say what the prophet Muhammad(Peace Be Upon Him) said when he himself was insulted and attacked at Taif.

“O Allah! I complain to You of my weakness, my scarcity of resources and the humiliation I have been subjected to by the people. O Most Merciful of those who are merciful. O Lord of the weak and my Lord too. To whom have you entrusted me?

To a distant person who receives me with hostility? Or to an enemy to whom you have granted authority over my affair? So long as You are not angry with me, I do not care. Your favor is of a more expansive relief to me. I seek refuge in the light of Your Face by which all darkness is dispelled and every affair of this world and the next is set right, lest Your anger or Your displeasure descends upon me. I desire Your pleasure and satisfaction until You are pleased. There is no power and no might except by You.”

What can you do?

Surveys and sms campaigns can only benefit us if we can use that information for us to take to ombudsman. If you were one of the 40000 that smsed to the SAFM 34701 and are complaining to the Press council I suggest you get that that from SAFM as proof of dissatisfaction at the cartoon.

Defending the Honour of Allah’s Beloved Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam

In light of recents events (Facebook-World wide, M&G-South Africa) targeting the honour of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, it is imperative for Muslims to understand the true nature of these events, the motivation behind them and our response to such blasphemy.

Food for thought – By Sheikh Waleed Abdulhakeem

When you attack black people, they call it racism. When you attack Jewish people, they call it anti-semetism. When you attack women, they call it sexism. When you attack homosexuality, they call it intolerance. When you attack your country, they call it treason. When you attack a religious sect, they call it hate speech. But when you attack the Prophet peace be upon him, they want to call it freedom of speech!
