Concerning mockery of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)
Alhamdulillah All praise belongs to God May the peace and blessing of Allah Subhana wa Ta 'aalaa be upon our Prophet Muhammad (Sal Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) and upon his family and Companions and whoever follows them in piety until the Day of Judgment
Allah (SWT) has always protected his Prophet peace be upon him, and sufficed His Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) against the criminals who mock him. There are many historical cases where those who mocked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) were destroyed and finished off. It's always a sign of their doom, and tells us that the end of their supremacy is at hand.
He says (interpretation of the meaning): Therefore declare openly what you are bidden and turn aside from the polytheists. Truly, We will suffice you against the scoffers" [al-Hijr 15:94-95]
The above verse meant that Allah would defeat all conspiracies and intrigues and destroy the scoffers one by one and they are :Aalwaleed Ibn Moogerah, Alass bin wael , Ibn Mutalib, Ibn Yaquth and Al Harith Bin Qais
We see that the Holy Prophet came out of all these conspiracies and mockeries successfully and how his teachings and guidance changed the destinies of mankind and people swarmed round him.
The Prophet peace be upon him wrote to Chosroes and Caesar - both of whom did not become Muslim but Caesar affirmed that he was indeed a Prophet, and he honored his message and the messenger whom the Prophet peace be upon him sent.
Ibn Taymiah in 'Al Sarem' wrote: ( The kingdom is still in his generation till today)
As for Chosroes he tore the message of the Prophet peace be upon him and mocked him, no later after while Allah s.w.t destroyed him and his kingdom. He was killed - he was scorned and humiliated and cut off from all that is good, and this in accordance with what Allah said that He will suffice His Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) against the criminals who mock him. He says (interpretation of the meaning):
"For he who hates you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), he will be cut off (from posterity and every good thing in this world and in the Hereafter)"
In a hadith qudsi Allah declares, 'one who bears enmity to one of My awliya' will have fought against Me'
What about who show enmity against the prophets of Allah s.w.t.
It is well known among Ahl al-Sunnah wal Jama`ah that who ever mock the companion of the Prophet peace be upon him needs to be deterred and disciplined. What about those who harm a prophet? especially if some one hurts and mocks the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him? Allah says in Quran
"Surely (as for) those who speak evil things of Allah and His Messenger, Allah has cursed them in this world and the here after, and He has prepared for them a chastisement bringing disgrace " Al-Ahzab -(33-57)
Through the earlier nations were destroyed and finished off , abasement and humiliation made on them because they mocked and harmed and killed their prophets as the Jews did with their prophets that why Allah s.w.t said in the Quran
(Abasement is made to cleave to them wherever they are found, except under a covenant with Allah and a covenant with men, and they have become deserving of wrath from Allah, and humiliation is made to cleave to them; this is because they disbelieved in the communications of Allah and slew the prophets unjustly; this is because they disobeyed and exceeded the limits ) Al Imran- (3-112)
and it would only be a short time before Allah granted his prophet victory, to avenge His just because they tried to scare and unsettle the prophetof Allah.
Allah says in Quran (And surely they purposed to unsettle you from the land that they might expel you from it, and in that case they will not tarry behind you but a little.) Al-Isra (17-76)
This was for trying to unstill the prophet how about those who mock the prophets? You will never find some one who harmed or mocked a prophet either was punished or doomed if he or she didn't repent to Allah s.w.t for their actions. That why shiekh Islam said after he mentioned the following hadith.
Volume 4, Book 56, Number 814:
There was a Christian who embraced Islam and read Surat-al-Baqara and Al-Imran, and he used to write (the revelations) for the Prophet. Later on he returned to Christianity again and he used to say: "Muhammad knows nothing but what I have written for him." Then Allah caused him to die, and the people buried him, but in the morning they saw that the earth had thrown his body out. They said, "This is the act of Muhammad and his companions. They dug the grave of our companion and took his body out of it because he had run away from them." They again dug the grave deeply for him, but in the morning they again saw that the earth had thrown his body out. They said, "This is an act of Muhammad and his companions. They dug the grave of our companion and threw his body outside it, for he had run away from them." They dug the grave for him as deep as they could, but in the morning they again saw that the earth had thrown his body out. So they believed that what had befallen him was not done by human beings and had to leave him thrown (on the ground).
Then Imam Ibn Taymiah said: This is beyond the usual shows everyone that this the punishment of what he said and that what he said was false, as generally the dead one do not suffer like this, and that this offence is greater than the person who leaves Islam because they don't suffer like this and that Allah avenge for His Prophet peace be upon him. It is known throughout the history of the Muslims, when they besieged a stronghold and its people resisted, then they heard them mocking and reviling the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), they would sense that victory was at hand, and it would only be a short time before Allah granted them victory, to avenge His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)
That why Allah s.w.t said about these people
(Say ye: "We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord: We make no difference between one and another of them: And we bow to Allah (in Islam). So if they believe as ye believe, they are indeed on the right path; but if they turn back, it is they who are in schism; but Allah will suffice thee as against them, and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing ) Al Baqrah (2-136:137)
Undoubtedly, the States politicians who turn a blind eye to those who mock the prophets are not censure in isolation because Allah s.w.t authorizes the destruction of the cities and villages where they mock the prophet peace be upon him. We can see the darkest injustice is abusing and mocking the Prophet peace be upon him, it violates the divine and it runs counter of rules and systems.
Perhaps this sinful crime what was concealed in the hearts of some westerners against the Prophet peace be upon him is a sign of their doom, and tells us that the end of their supremacy is at hand, because when they didn't find a way to answer the truth, Islam has other than by mocking its prophet and by verbal abuse of Islam.
This is also an exposure of the West's double standards. Here they cite freedom of opinion, but every wise man knows that this so-called freedom of opinion should stop before violating the sanctity of others and transgressing against them. They are lying in their claims of freedom of opinion.
It shows the falseness of their claim with which they have filled the world, namely the dialogue of civilizations that is based on respect for others and not transgressing against them. What kind of dialogue do they want?! What respect do they claim to show? They want us to respect them and honor them, but all they do is make fun of us and mock us and wrong us even more.
What happened should revive faith in Muslim hearts and extent of their love for the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him); and they should defend our noble Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
We should demand a clear and sincere apology from them, not deception or justification of the crime which they call an apology. We do not want an apology for showing disrespect towards the Muslims; rather we want an admission of error and an apology for that error. We should strive to call these people, for although we look at them through a lens of hatred and resentment, we also look at them with compassion if they die in this state; so we should call them to Islam and salvation, out of mercy and compassion towards them.
We ask Allah to cause His religion to prevail and to support His close friends, and to humiliate His enemies.
"And Allah has full power and control over His Affairs, but most of men know not"
