Free Speech Muhammad


Muhammad's views of freedom of expression.

"I Forbid Satire, Mockery, or Ridicule! I Forbid Insulting or Offensive Cartoons!"

"I Encourage Murder, Arson, Kidnapping, Threats and Mob Violence!"

To me this seems self evident. Mob have attacked an embassy in Jakarta and set fire to embassies in Syria and Beirut. Mobs have incited murder in London. All the while these people are furious that anyone, anywhere would dare draw a cartoon of their demi-god Muhammad (Mohammed). Mobs across the "Muslim world" burn flags and effigies and chant "Death to Denmark" but the mere mention that rightist in Denmark would dare to plan to burn a Koran resulted in threats that "all hell would break loose."

They can dish it out but they can't take it. How can a whole culture be this insecure?

Catholics killing Protestants, Christians killing Jews, the Inquisition happened, the Crusades were declared, forced conversions of natives were done...

Know that Christianity is good, but that doesn't mean Christians are all good. Even Catholic Popes can fall into the dark side of the force. You have heard of stories that says the Popes tortured enemies and indulged in adultary, haven't you?

I don't believe Jesus Christ taught these.

This situation is same in Islam. Islam is good, but don't judge the creed from what you see in the media.

Let's gather knowledge first about Islam before we say what Islam is really about.

Go to this link of an online Koran: http://www.islamicity.com/mosque/SURAI.HTM

I suggest the reading of the 4th "Surah", entitled Women. See for yourselves whether Muslims are behaving as they should be or not.

---Peace on earth---

Wow
A picture speaks a thousand word...

No doubt that you really are an anti-Islamist who hates Islam to the point of no arguement eh, dear blog owner
So, what religion do you embrace again?
Or are you a non-believer?
Just curious ;)
Thank you for caring to answer!


And thank you Daniel for not being on one extreme side too ;)

oh, thank you daniel. And just for all of you to know, Muslims are not just hurt when Prophet Muhammad is insulted, but also when Prophet Moses and also Jesus (peace be upon them) were insulted too. As we believe that these 3 great men are Messenger of Allah, and they bring nothing but kindness and peace.

May it be Muhammad, Jesus, or Moses, or even Dalai Lama , it has never been a respectful thing to do to insult people.

Just because others hate, doesn't mean you have to hate too.

Just because others are being on the extreme side, doesn't mean you have to be on the extreme side too.

To confirm with what the others are doing (i.e.: "bad things") is the same as confirming you are on the same side with them because you are doing the "bad things" as well.

You are not as good as I thought you were after I had read your previous entries.

You disappoint me, really. You're just another hater out there that is trying your hard to spread hatred, just because others are doing it.

:(

Dear latest commentator

I have had a look onto the blog that u've linked via this page

It seems like there's always something worse than what we've already perceived as being the worst

Disgrace it is, but we do hope that one day these sort of people would learn to respect religious belief
Am not talking specifically about ISLAM but also about other religion
As much as I dare not see people humiliate Islam, I fear more that PEOPLE NOWADAYS HAVE NO MORE CONFIDENCE IN THE POWER OF RELIGION

My prayers go to God
May God do whatever he thinks BEST

'Yo, "Islam is a religion of peace,,, kill all who say otherwise". Thomas 'THANK YOU' and the millions of others who are beginning to 'SHINE THE LIGHT OF TRUTH' upon this 'noble faith' (LOL). Islam is not a religion of tolerance, if it were Islamic nations would allow Bibles in their tolerant nations, however we know if you're caught within one of these hell-holes with any religious material other than a Koran you'll be arrested, imprisoned and in some cases put to death, so much for the religion of peace,,, kill all those who say otherwise. Later NO ISLAM KNOW PEACE. To the muslims, I'm not a Christian or Jew, I'm a Free Thinking Man.

Ok buddy who left the last comment. Wanna try not judging a book by its cover? Did you ever wonder why Bibles weren't allowed in Muslim countries. Try because THE GOVERNMENT made it so. We can't do anything about that. And I really don't blame them for not allowing Bibles, etc.. in their country. If it's a nation with the majority being Muslim, I don't see why they shouldn't try and preserve their faith. We want Islam to be around for a while. I KNOW Islam is going to be around for a while also.

(P.S. Thanks to all of those who are looking at this matter in a sensible way. You do not believe how much I respect you, no matter what faith you are. )

Dear Brothers/Sisters

It is a humble invitation to a truth, which is revealed by God (Allah-almighty) to the total mankind, up on Prophet Muhammad (Peace be up on Him) as revealed before on Prophets Moses (Mosa), Jesus (Isa) and other Prophets (Peace be up on them all). But now only 100% purely existing religion in this world is Islam! And only purely 100% existing revelation is Holy Qur'an All other revelations are corrupted! The only true God Allah-almighty/our creator/the creator of universe says in Qur'an (V51: 56) that "And I (Allah) created not the Jinn and Mankind except that they should worship Me (Allah alone)". As well as in (Qur'an 3:64) Allah says that "O people of the Scripture! Come to a Word that is Just between us (Muslim) and you, that we worship none but Allah (Alone), and that we associate no partners with Him (Allah), and that none of us shall take others as Lords (Gods) besides Allah. Then, if they turn away, say: Bear witness that we are Muslims (truly submitted/obeying to only-God)".

Islam is a total submission and worship to only Allah-almighty/only-God/our-Creator, Creator of universe, Self-sufficient- Master, whom all creatures need, He begets not, nor was He Begotten, Most Gracious, Most Merciful, 100%-Perfect, Eternal and there is none Co-equal or comparable unto Him-(Allah).

A voluntary relationship/submission to our Creator/Sustainer Allah in His Oneness with obedience (of His commands-Qur'an and teaching of Prophet Muhammad PBUH), and denouncing polytheism and its adherents to gain a peaceful/successful life in this world and Hereafter gain Paradise as well as protection from Hell-fire.

None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, Muhammed is the Messenger of Allah

Nothing else is worthy of worship; not stones, statues, crosses, tombs, the sun, the moon, stars, movie stars, musician, athletes, Prophets (from any religion), saints, priests, temples, animals, religious scholars or any creature. If worship anything other than Allah-almighty, is the only sin that would never be forgiven on the Day of Judgment! If you do not study this truth, adopt it and publish it in front of your people, you would be responsible for your people and yourself hereafter on the Day of Judgment.

No Terrorism in Islam:

"There is no compulsion in religion (Islam). Verily, the right path (Islam-Monotheism) has become distinct from the wrong path (Polytheism), whoever disbelieves in "Taguth" (all false Gods) and believes in Allah (only God), and then he has grasped the most trustworthy-handhold that will never break. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower" (Qur'an 2:256). The only times in which Islamic believers are allowed to take up arms are when they are defending their own lives and the lives of their people. When they See the weak being oppressed in acts of tyranny, and when they are prohibited from practicing their religion. Aside from these circumstances, there is no legitimate fighting in Islam.

Invite to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided."

Holy Qur’an 16:125

"Narrated Aishah (radhi-yallaahu 'anhaa): The Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said, “Do good deeds properly, sincerely and moderately, and receive good news because one's good deeds will not make him enter Paradise.” They asked, “Even you, O Allah's Messenger?” He said, “Even I, unless and until Allah protects me with His pardon and His Mercy."

Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol. 8, Hadith No. 474
