Some kuffar have designated today (May 20) as ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’, where people are encouraged to draw insulting pictures of our beloved Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم and post them on a dedicated Facebook page.
Facebook, released a statement defending its support for this day when it said, “we strongly believe that Facebook users have the freedom to express their opinions, and we don’t typically take down content, groups or pages that speak out against countries, religions, political entities, or ideas.”
In response to this provocative action by US-based Facebook Hizb ut-Tahrir has organized demonstrations in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad to protest against this. The demos were held outside press clubs and offices of the media outlets. The protesters were carrying banners and placards inscribed with slogans such as: “O Pak Army! Rise and deliver a teeth-shattering response to the blasphemers by establishing the Khilafah”, and “The blasphemous kuffar only dared to do this because of the treacherous Muslim rulers”.
The speakers said that as far as the Western ideal of “freedom” is concerned; it is just a facade to lash the back of Islam.
We ask does a Muslim woman have “freedom” in a French school where she is not even allowed to wear a head-scarf!?
Do hundreds of Muslims incarcerated for the past 8 years in the dungeons of Guantanamo Bay enjoy any level of “freedom”, who don’t even know the allegations for which they have been abducted?
Does any individual in the West have the “freedom” to criticize the holocaust?
Then why is it that the personality of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم is always attacked under the guise of “freedom”?! The speakers said that the West is fully aware that Muslims do not have their shield, the Khilafah, and these treacherous rulers are only their agents whose sole purpose in life is to put shackles on the Muslims and work to protect the interests of the kuffar.
The insults against the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, the attacks on Shari’a, and occupation of Muslim lands will continue and only get worse until the Muslim world removes the impotent puppet rulers and establishes an Islamic government, the Khilafah, which will stand up against these atrocities against Muslims and Islam.
The Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم described our situation today where we are like froth and scum that is carried down by a torrent of water.
“The People will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invite others to share their food.” Someone asked, “Will that be because of our small numbers at that time?” He صلى الله عليه وسلم replied, “No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be froth and scum like that carried down by a torrent (of water), and Allah will take the fear of you from the breasts (hearts) of your enemy and cast al-wahn into your hearts.” Someone asked, “O Messenger of Allah, what is al-wahn?” He صلى الله عليه وسلم replied, “Love of the world and dislike of death.” [Abu Dawud and Ahmad]
Those who harbour hatred towards the Muslim world are fully aware that attacking our beloved Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم is an easy way of provoking the Muslim world and creating tensions to further fuel the war on terror which in reality is a war against Islam. Today we are an easy target for the kuffar despite our huge numbers because the Imam which is a shield to protect the Ummah physically and intellectually is missing.
The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “The Imam is a shield, behind whom you fight and you protect yourself with, so if he orders by taqwa and is just then he has reward for that, and if he orders by other than that then it is against himself.” [Muslim]
In 1913 when the Ottoman Khilafah was in a weakened state, the English author George Bernard Shaw contemplated writing a book against the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. But the existence of the Khilafah was enough of a deterrent to stop him from this.
In Shaw’s diary of 1913 he writes: ‘I had long desired to dramatise the life of Mahomet. But the possibility of a protest from the Turkish Ambassador – or the fear of it – causing the Lord Chamberlain to refuse to license such a play, deterred me.’ [Hesketh Pearson’s biography of George Bernard Shaw]
If the Muslim world continues to be divided and ruled by these western backed dictatorships the attacks against our Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم and the believers will only continue. Only with the re-establishment of the Khilafah and the implementation of Allah سبحانه وتعالى laws can the honour and dignity of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم be protected. It is the Khilafah State which will truly protect the deen from abuse and ridicule.
