Charlie Hebdo front cover: Prophet Mohamed cartoon published in first magazine edition since Paris terror attacks
This is a time of using our intellect and professional etiquette as taught to us by the Prophet Pbuh.
The cartoon drawing they depict as being of Muhammad is an act of how small their brains are. And why?
Baraa bin Aazib (Radiallahu anhu) relates that:
“Rasullullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) was a man of a medium build, (slightly tall, as explained before); he had broad shoulders (from which we may gather that he had a wide chest); he had dense hair which reached his ear-lobes; he wore a red striped lungi (a cloth worn around the legs) and shawl. I never saw anybody or anything more handsome than him”.
Our Prophet Saws Phuh was man of smart intellect , love and compassion for all mankind. His teachings, ways and methods have touched people around the world. He was a man of distinction, honesty and integrity and he loved his ummah. This man taught us how to care for our parents, our wifes and children. This man taught us to never engage in Adultry. This man taught us via the Quraan that drinking alcohol is forbidden as excess alcohol can cause the mind to become corrupt and out of control, leading to rape.
This man taught us to help our neighbour no matter what their race. This man taught us how reach out to the poor and needy by giving zakat from our wealth, an obligation on every earing Muslim throughout the world. Just imagine, if all of humanity gave just 2.5% a year, how famine could be resolved.
This man taught us that the Quraan warns about killing and suicide, the outcome being of hell. This man taught us to keep clean and pure at all times. This man taught us to show no pride. This man taught us to stand up for justice. This man taught us sit with the poor and needy. This man told us to help others and think about others. This man taught us about being humble. This man taught us to lower our gaze….
The list is endless. The pictures that are shown around the world of the Prophet Pbuh are a result of very low intellect. They can make these pictures, but the cartoon publicists are of very low intellect and are only proving their madness, they have nothing else better do but to look for free publicity and looking for ‘cheap thrills’, not how you and I behave.
The cartoons they show, is that the Prophet Pbuh?
No. It’s not.
The cartoons are indication of their very low intellect and how they want us to react. More than ever before, lets show our real intellect in dealing with these type of people and show more unity than ever before, spell out beautiful hadith that the Prophet Pbuh taught us, and let the Non Muslims who do want to know more about this man, to be shown the amazing beautiful character of the Prophet pbuh, such that they will think:
“How can such a man with such values and teachings ever promote terrorism and hatred?”
Now, that’s for you and I to deliver to not only the Non Musims, but to the entire Ummah too…
Let’s do it . Are you ready?
Will leave you with this beautiful hadith as a starter!
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said,
“Whoever relieves the hardship of a believer in this world, Allah will relieve his hardship on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever helps ease someone in difficulty, Allah will make it easy for him in this world and in the Hereafter. Whoever covers the faults of a Muslim, Allah will cover his faults in this world and in the Hereafter. Allah helps the servant as long as he helps his brother. Whoever travels a path in search of knowledge, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise, for a people do not gather together in the houses of Allah, reciting the Book of Allah and studying together, except that tranquility will descend upon them, mercy will cover them, angels will surround them, and Allah will mention them to those with Him. Whoever is slow to good deeds will not be hastened by his lineage.”
