[Quranic Reflection]: What should Muslims do when the verses of God are made fun of?
RE: [Quranic Reflection]: What should Muslims do when the verses of God are made fun of?
(September 4, 2020 at 4:52 am)WinterHold Wrote: One of the cases repeated by many non-Muslims and some Muslims who were brainwashed by the ISIS and Islamic extremists' speech is this simple case: "shouldn't Muslims just slaughter any person making fun of Islam and its Prophet peace be upon him" ?

The idea was propagated and spread with the rise of "extreme Islamic Jihad", but a direct and explicit verse from the Quran says exactly what should be done by Muslims who hear their religion being mocked and made fun of:

Quote:Sura 4, The Quran:

( 140 )   And it has already come down to you in the Book that when you hear the verses of Allah [recited], they are denied [by them] and ridiculed; so do not sit with them until they enter into another conversation. Indeed, you would then be like them. Indeed Allah will gather the hypocrites and disbelievers in Hell all together -

The Quran never said to kill people who ridicule Islam. It simply said to the believers to walk away and don't sit with those who ridicule "until they change the subject".

I think that's very good advice.  If someone is ridiculing your religion, it's pretty pointless to try to engage them.  Simply walk away, secure in your own bigotry and ignorance.

Of course, there's also Sura 9:5 which says, 'And when the forbidden months have passed, kill the idolaters wherever you find them and take them prisoners, and beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent and observe Prayer and pay the Zakat, then leave their way free. Surely, Allah is Most Forgiving, Merciful.'

Bit of a poser for you, I'm sure.
