How the Response should be to the Insults against the Messenger of Allah (saw) (Translated)
Another challenge by the West shook the Muslim world, in addition to what was done by Charlie Hebdo, the French weekly magazine, many of the European media re-printed the previously published cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad (saw). The Kuffar have gone even further; in 14/1/2015 CE a new edition was issued of the magazine containing new caricature drawings of the Prophet Muhammad (saw), a million copies were re-printed instead of the usual 60 thousand copies. Then they increased the number of editions to up to three million copies, and they wanted to raise the number of copies to up to five million and even seven million copies. This is unusual in the history of French newspapers and magazines; it is a stark evidence of the hatred of the West to Islam. They no longer have any respect for the Muslims, and they, i.e. the Kuffar, mock our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) openly and use the killing of the cartoonists as a pretext for their ideological attack on the Islamic values, trying to push Muslims to recognize the right of non-Muslims in mocking the values of Islam and our sanctities.
Naturally, every sincere Muslim will ask what should be done in this case, and how can we stop the insults to the Messenger of Allah (saw), and how should the real response be to this challenge, and how to punish those criminals for their crimes, and then how we work to completely eliminate abuse of the Prophet (saw) by the West?
If we look in the Seerah of the Prophet Muhammad (saw), and the Khulafaa' (ra), and the history of the Islamic State, since its inception and until the date of its destruction, it is very clear to us that Islam specified the solution to this problem, where Muslims faced similar situations several times. Islam has many Ahkam that ensure the protection of the Aqeedah, these rules have effectively prevented attempts to undermine Islam or discredit the sanctities of the Muslims over the centuries, not only within the borders of the Islamic state, but also in the territory of other countries.
It is sufficient to recall what happened in 1890 when the French writer Marc de Paris wrote the theatrical play to be displayed on stage of the Francis Comedy Theater, and it contained insults to the Prophet Muhammad (saw), so at that time the khaleefah Abdul Hameed II sent a letter to France to prevent the play from being displayed, France obeyed his orders and stopped it and sent to the Sultan the following message: "We are sure that the position we have taken towards the Sultan's orders will enhance the relationship between us...". Then the French writer attempted afterwards to show his play in Britain, and began preparing for the show in a famous English theatre; the Sultan sent another letter demanding to stop the play, so he prevented the play in Britain, and Britain apologized for their silence over the author's attempt to show his play there. It must be emphasized that this has happened when the British Empire was the number one state in the world, as is America today, and France also was one of the major powers at the time, however, the Uthmani Khilafah "Caliphate" did not allow them to insult the Prophet Muhammad (saw), and the West recognized exactly how dear to Muslims is the love the Messenger and the Deen, and they are ready to defend them and protect their values no matter what it cost them.
Thus, the state is the protector of the Aqeedah and prevented the attack on the honor of the Prophet Muhammad (saw). It is therefore imperative that everyone understands that the cartoons of the Prophet (saw) and other insults of the Islamic creed will stop only when the Islamic Khilafah "Caliphate" state is established.
From this, it is evident that the only way to prevent the insults on the Messenger of Allah (saw) is by working to establish the Khilafah "Caliphate". It is noteworthy that the Prophet (saw) met various hardships in the way of the establishment of the state, of ridicule and physical assault on his character. From them the one who threw sheep intestines on his back and another put thorns in his path, and the third put garbage at the door of his home, and the fourth poured sand over his honorable head. And the various hardships suffered by his honorable companions, and even murder. Thus, the route taken by the Prophet (saw) and his companions was to protect the Muslims and the implementation of Allah's Shariah alone, and it is the method to establish the Khilafah "Caliphate". This method involves the establishment of the bloc, that took the burden upon itself to work among the Arabs and call them to Islam, to become their Deen, and requesting the support of the people of power who protected the Prophet (saw) and gave him the rule. After 13 years of hard work, and heavy sacrifices, Allah (swt) prepared for His Prophet the Ansar (Supporters) from the people of Yathrib, which became known as Medina later, they gave him the rule and established the first state of Islam at the hands of the Prophet Muhammad (saw).
Today, the world is filled with hostility against Islam, so the mass murder of Muslims became the norm, and insulting the Prophet Muhammad (saw) is frequent.
The persecution of Muslims because of their Islam has become something natural in many countries of the world. We like to remind the Muslims that the establishment of an Islamic state is a collective duty and the responsibility of all Muslims; they must follow the path of the Prophet Muhammad (saw) and his companions (ra).
As for the marches and demonstrations organized by the Muslims as a response to the insults of the Prophet (saw), although they express the anger of Muslims towards those who insult the Messenger of Allah (saw), but they do not produce a direct impact to stop the insults, so the response must not be limited to venting out steam followed by silence and acceptance. The real response must be by the Islamic Ummah as a whole to work to establish the Khilafah "Caliphate" according to the method of the Prophet (saw). By then the enemies of Islam will be held accountable for their actions in front of the Ameer of believers, a just Khaleefah, as did the Khaleefah Abdul Hameed II. The establishment of the second guided Khilafah "Caliphate" will only restore for Muslims their glory and will protect them, and will make the enemies of Islam feel again that they cannot infringe upon Muslim values and sanctities.
Allah (swt) says:
وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَىٰ لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا ۚ يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا ۚ وَمَنْ كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ
"Allah has promised those who have believed among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that - then those are the defiantly disobedient" [An-Nur: 55]
