The Statement of the Board of Iftaa` Over the Denouncement of the  Caricature Insulting  Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

Praise be to Allah; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

The Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies issued, in its first session held on Thursday(24/Rabee` Al-Awwal/1436 AH),(15/1/2015), the following statement:

Allah`s prophets and messengers are the best of all  creation, the dearest to Him and the most honorable. He sent them as a guidance and a mercy to mankind, so insulting one of them is tantamount to insulting all of them because we, Muslims, make no distinction between any of Allah`s messengers for he says in the Holy Quran: “The Messenger believes in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and the believers; each one believes in God and His angels, and in His Books, and His messengers, 'we make no distinction between any of His messengers'. And they say, 'We hear and obey; Your forgiveness, our Lord; to You is the homecoming'. “ {Al-Baqarah/285}.

Those who have insulted the Messenger{PBUH} have no idea who he really is; they have committed their act out of ignorance, or in pursuit of some worldly profit. Had they reviewed his biography and personal attributes, they would have realized that he is a role model and a charismatic leader, and so they would have stood up in respect and admiration for this great Prophet. Allah has praised him in His Eternal Book(Quran) where He says: “And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character. “ {Al-Qalam/4}.

The Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies confirms that the insulting caricature published by the French satirical newspaper is a clear proof of intentional instigation of hatred and trial the world over, and it should be countered  with decisive measures. Therefore, Muslims shoulder the responsibility of defending the Prophet{PBUH} through applying his Quraanic manners, bringing out his beautiful image before the whole world, refuting suspicious matters targeting him and his biography, and abstaining from violence, terrorism and killing as these only lead to distorting the beautiful image of Islam and Muslims.

On its part, the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies calls for defending Islam as well as its honorable Prophet via various means of mass media, social and cultural events, initiating dialogue with influential parties and spreading his Sunnah(Prophetic tradition) throughout the different aspects of daily life in order for us(Muslims) to be the best followers of the best of prophets and messengers.
