I promise to Bless Allaah
'We have heard about the Westerners making fun of the Prophet'
yes ALL westerners do this and this is a crime and we should be SHAMED to belive in christ instead.
'What should our attitude be towards that?' 'We and every Muslim who feels pride in his religion is grieved by what these fools and criminals have done by mocking our Prophet Muhammad'
But what should you expect from FOOLS and CRIMINALS? i'm sure Muhammad would agree and instead of understanding and forgiving he would move right to insults and hatred, good call!
'This insolence is nothing strange on their part, rather it is to be expected of them.'
Of course, go on.
'Moreover this crime, is nevertheless something which brings us glad tidings of their doom'
Your all SO right all who do not follow the narrow path of anger and hate SHOULD ALL BE PUT TO DEATH! YOU GO!
“For he who hates you 'Muhammad' he will be cut off (from posterity and every good thing in this world and in the Hereafter)”
of course this dictate is only a refrence to non muslims and those that fallow Muhammad should feel free to hate any who follow a different path. I see where your going here, I'd spit on all the Western infidels except I am one
' why do they resent the leader of mankind, Muhammad' 'They want to indulge in the swamp of evil whims and desires, and they have got what they want!'
YES! we are all decendents of evil and should be punished! please call down the mighty wraith of your "WE" but I interupt, please go on...
“And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers”
[Aal ‘Imraan 3:85]
Yes, i see it now! we should all KNEEL to the great 'WE' that represents the golden forgiving light that is Muhammad.
'Allaah is wise and does not decree anything that is pure evil; rather there must be something good in it for His believing slaves, no matter how evil it appears to people'
Yes as slaves we see that we can not possibly see what is or is not evil and should look to the islamic masters that by devine right should lord over us, it's all so CLEAR now!!
'Concerning the incident of the slander (al-ifk) – which is well known – Allaah says:
“Consider it not a bad thing for you. Nay, it is good for you. Unto every man among them will be paid that which he had earned of the sin, and as for him among them who had the greater share therein, his will be a great torment”
It's a good thing muslims do not partake of the sin of slander so these words hold no fear for them, makes perfect sense.
“Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse”
[Aal ‘Imraan 3:118]
THAT i'm SURE of.
'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.'
yes because double standards is A BAD BAD THING! our shame is like dirt in the taste of our mouth.
“Don’t call the non-Muslims kuffaar, rather call them ‘others’ so as not to fan the flames of trouble between us and them.”
'But everyone should understand just who it is that hates the other, and does not respect his sanctity, and declares war against him every time he gets the opportunity'
Yes it is important to know that non muslims do not have the right to hate like muslims do. we really should find our PLACE!!
'A clear message was sent to the West: that we Muslims will never accept to see our religion insulted or humiliated, or any transgression against our Messenger. We will all sacrifice ourselves for him.'
In that way you can earn a place at his side and do not have to deal with tolerence and kindness to those non muslims that are naught but mud at your feet, WOW I CAN SEE THE LIGHT THAT IS THE PROPHET!
“But if you remain patient and become Al-Muttaqoon (the pious), not the least harm will their cunning do to you”
[Aal ‘Imraan 3:120]
IT'S GOOD TO KNOW THE INNOCENT WILL BE SPARED
'And Allaah knows best'
OF COURSE HE DOES!
Please know that you have struck me deeply as i'm sure you have effected all the other heathens. I at least shall use the words you have used to open my eyes every day as I use them at my porcelain alter! I promise to Bless Allaah every time!

We and every Muslim who feels pride in his religion is grieved by what these fools and criminals have done by mocking our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) who is the best man who ever walked on this earth
we are prepared to sacrifice our lives in defence of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) – is nevertheless something which brings us glad tidings of their doom
When the Muslims besieged a stronghold and its people resisted...
There are many historical cases where those who mocked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) were destroyed and finished off.
Moreover, why do they resent the leader of mankind, Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)?
They resent him because...
They resent him because he is the Messenger of Allaah! Allaah, may He be exalted, is the One Who chose him above all mankind to convey His message and receive His revelation.
The signs of his Prophethood are innumerable.
Have they not heard about the splitting of the moon? Have they not heard how water sprang from his fingers time after time?
It was narrated from one of their kings that a man who followed the same religion as him (Christian) was brought to him, who used to revile the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and accuse him of lying. The king summoned his religious scholars and asked them: How long does a liar remain for? They said: Such and such – thirty years or thereabouts. The king said: This religion of Muhammad has lasted for more than five hundred years or six hundred years [i.e., at the time of that king], and it is prevailing and is accepted and followed. How can he be a liar? Then he had that man beheaded.
A clear message was sent to the West: that we Muslims will never accept to see our religion insulted or humiliated, or any transgression against our Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). We will all sacrifice ourselves for him.
We should request them to punish the criminals for their crime.

All right, all right, let's everyone back up a little bit. I appreciate everyone has a passionate take on the case, of one form or another.
tresbien - you're just posting a link here. I appreciate that you have feelings on this issue, but you need to post some kind of a personal opinion or something here to be debated. Do you strive hard only with the words of another? Give something of yourself here.
02-19-08, 08:47 AM #6
Ok, I was wrong a bit: your point appears to be mockery of Mohammed, which was actually stated.
So you feel, obviously, that this is wrong. But why is it wrong? Merely on the basis of the Quran? But what of those of us who don't believe in the Quran or follow Mohammed? Obviously we feel no reverence for this figure, as you wouldn't for, say, the divinity of Jesus. What should be the right action for you if we continue to mock Mohammed, either individually or societally? What is the correct political position or legal position? What sort of punishment should be meted out to those that mock Quranic figures, Mohammed included?
02-19-08, 08:49 AM #7
Tresbien, you (and all who think as you do) should stay out of western countries, and you should not read western media, or watch western films or television. Problem solved.
If you think that you may dictate to those who do not believe in your particular brand of superstition, you are very sadly mistaken.
02-19-08, 08:50 AM #8
Also, why may not the converse be done, then? Is there a reason - aside from scriptural - that I for instance should tolerate the denial of the Trinity by islam, say? Is there a reason that I should not prosetylize in islamic countries? (Aside from the physical, obviously.)
02-19-08, 10:13 AM #9
let there be respect
i believe, everyone should respect eachother's belief regardsless of whatever it is. one should be open to discussion in a respectful manner, w/o mocking.
and believers should respond peacefully the those who mocks religious figures.
if we go on to say " my religion is better than your religion, fight will go forever, with no gain at the end.
thats what i believe.
02-19-08, 10:41 AM #10
It would be unfair on my part to illspeak about any one without knowing him or well or read about him or her from reliable sources .Mohamed may peace be upon him is the kindest man on earth.He gives much and tolerate much.he was the most generous man whose life was for putting smile on the lips of the poor and needy and for his kindheartdness to all races.
pls visit this link to know him well
02-19-08, 10:43 AM #11
We should respect each other and do not insult each other.Support your arguments with evidences and examples rather than groundless charges.
02-19-08, 10:50 AM #12
YET this does not reflect in the first link you posted as it seems intolerence and hate is the word of the day and instead of talking and expressing your view you throw around your religion instead of words from your own mind, I would like to think you are here to speak and share a message rather it seems you are just one person that is part of a larger group who has been sent to sites like this as a means to pass information or in this case propaganda because you have no free will or personal thought in your subjects.

I think the hypersensitivity, and completely disproportionate reaction by the Muslim community of Europe to a perceived slight is very telling about their collective insecurity.
A person of deep faith, and security in their beliefs, is simply not going lose all sense of reason, and go around burning cars, demanding death of a cartoonist, and in general being anti-social because of a damn cartoon.
If a bloody cartoon is all it takes for ones faith to be shaken, it's doubtful their faith and supposedly spirituality will offer them any comfort in times of real misery and sorrow.
I wish I could believe this was only a tiny percentage of the Muslim population, but unfortunately, the numbers refute that notion.
02-19-08, 11:14 AM #14
The list of events from the public media is evidence enough to show Islam to be the most violent religion on the Earth today. This title has been earned over the last 40 year from a never ending unwarranted assaults on innocents by Muslims. It should come as no surprise that outsiders will report this by using violent depictions of Islamic symbols. If the Muslims were truly offended by such things as cartoons of Muhammad they would hunt down those that actually tarnished the image of Islam and not those that simply reported it.
02-19-08, 11:42 AM #15
Not counting the gulags, the holocaust, the two world wars, the continuous wars fought by the western world since WWII, the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and the support for dictators and oppressive regimes and the enforcement of inequitable treaties, laws, the creation of teh state ofIsrael, etc.
The massive civilian death count from all of the above will probably add up to the most violent culture to ever beset this earth. And thats just the last 60 or so years of it.
