Thursday’s brazen killing of a market woman, Bridget Agbahime, at Kofar Wambai market in Kano, who was alleged to have blasphemed the Prophet Muhammad has left many people the world over shocked, saddened, and even infuriated.

As the smoke cleared and as the Kano State Government and the Nigeria Police announced the arrest of the prime suspects in the killing, PREMIUM TIMES requested its in-house faith writer (Islam) to conduct extensive research in the Qur’an and the Hadith with a view to establishing Islam’s position on blasphemy and killings.

Below is the result of his research. 

As a Muslim, I was left having to grapple with – and answer- questions about the Islam’s stance towards free speech and whether this incidence was a natural consequence of mocking or abusing Muslim sentiments.

I call on all civil and community leaders to cooperate in ensuring lasting peace. And I urged all Nigerian leaders to emulate Governor Umar Ganduje’s initiative in ensuring brotherly co-existence in the country.

Blashemy and Islam

Blasphemy is a very controversial topic in Islam that has taken on new importance due to the proliferation of instant global communication. Muslim extremists incorrectly cite a precedent in classical Islamic law to justify gross acts of vigilante violence and murder.

Therefore, it is important for us to understand the context of the classical ruling and to view this issue in the larger perspective of the Qur’an and Sunnah as a consistent whole.

The general answer to blasphemy (Sabb ala Allah wa Rasulihi) as commanded in the Qur’an is to respond with patience, beautiful preaching, and graceful avoidance. The Qur’an records the fact that the Prophet was called a “sorcerer,” a “madman,” and a “liar,” yet Allah commanded him to be patient and to increase his acts of worship.

Allah Said:

“Be patient over what they say and avoid them with gracious avoidance.” (Surah Al-Muzzamil 73:10)

And Allah said:

“So be patient over what they say and exalt with the praises of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting.” (Surah Qaf 50:39)

And Allah said:

“So be patient over what they say and exalt with the praises of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting.” (Surah Ta Ha 20:130)

These insults deeply hurt the feelings of the Prophet and his Companions, but Allah did not prescribe revenge for them.

Allah said:

“We already know that your heart is constrained by what they say, so glorify the praises of your Lord and be among those who prostrate.” (Surah Al-Hijr 15:97-98)

In fact, Allah told the Prophet and his Companions to expect more insults and mockery from the followers of other religions, and that they should remain patient and not let their abuse shake their faith.

Allah said:

“You will surely be tested in your possessions and in yourselves, and you will surely hear from those who were given the scripture before you and from those who associate others with Allah much abuse. But if you are patient and fear Allah that is of the matters requiring resolve.” (Surah Ali Imran 3:186)

In other verses, Allah commands the believers to simply avoid those who mock Islam and not to sit with them until they discuss something else.

Allah said:

When you see those who engage in offensive discourse concerning our verses, then turn away from them until they enter into another conversion.” (Surah Al-An’am 6:68)

And Allah said:

“It has already been revealed to you in the Book that when you hear the verses of Allah, they are denied and ridiculed. So do not sit with them until they enter into another conversation. Verily, you would then be like them.” (Surah An-Nisa 4:140)

Generally, the Prophet was commanded to endure any insult or mockery from his enemies which resulted from their bad character.

Allah said:

“Show forgiveness, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the ignorant.” (Surah Al-A’raf 7:199)

Abdullah ibn Zubair explained this verse, saying:

The Prophet was commanded to forgive the people’s bad character.” (Sunan Abu Dawud 4787)

There are many recorded incidents in the life of the Prophet in which he was mocked, defamed, and even physically attacked for his faith in Islam, but despite this abuse the Prophet responded with patience, forbearance, mercy, and forgiveness.

In one incident, a group of Jews insulted the Prophet in his own home. Although the Prophet was the leader of Madinah at the time, he did not order these men to be harmed. Rather, he used the incident to teach his Companions an important lesson about kindness.

Aisha reported:

“A group of Jews asked permission to visit the Prophet and when they were admitted they said, “Death be upon you.” I said to them, “Rather death and the curse of Allah be upon you!” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “O Aisha, Allah is kind and He loves kindness in all matters.” I said, “Have you not heard what they said?” The Prophet said: “I said to them: And upon you.” (Sahih Bukhari 6528).

Al-Bukhari records this narration in his chapter regarding those who curse and abuse the Prophet, which strongly implies that he did not believe legal punishment should be applied to every case of blasphemy.

Badr ud-Din Al-Ayni, a scholar of the Hanafi School, comments on this chapter heading:

“Al-Bukhari has adopted the method of the people of Kufi on this issue, that if someone curses or berates the Prophet and he is a non-Muslim citizen, then he is rebuked but he is not killed. This is the opinion of Ath-Thawri.” (Umdat al-Qari fi Sharh Sahih Al-Bukhari 34/412).

In another incident, the Prophet was defamed and insulted by one of the men of Madinah who was upset with his method of distributing charity. The Prophet did not retaliate against him even though he was very disturbed by it, citing the fact that Musa (Moses), peace be upon him, was harmed by his people with much greater abuse.

Ibn Mas’ud reported:

“The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, was distributing charity among the people when a man from the Ansar said, “By Allah, Muhammad did not intend to please Allah with this distribution!” I came to the Prophet and informed him about this, then anger could be seen on his face and the Prophet said: “Moses was hurt with more than this, yet he remained patient.” (Sahih Bukhari)

Indeed, it was the practice of all the Prophets to patiently endure the harm they received from their people, even to the point of asking Allah to forgive their oppressors.

Allah said:

“They said: We will surely be patient with whatever harm you cause us, and let them rely on who would rely upon Allah.” (Surah Ibrahim 14:12)

Ibn Mas’ud reported:

“I saw the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, tell the story of a Prophet who was beaten by his people and he wiped the blood from his face, saying: “My Lord, forgive my people for they do not know.” (Sahih Bukhari 6530)

An-Nawawi comments on this narration, saying:

“In this is what the Prophets, peace and blessings be upon them, were upon of forbearance, patience, forgiveness, and compassion for their people, their supplications for them to receive guidance and to be forgiven, and that they should be excused for their sins because they did not know.” (Sharh Sahih Muslim 1792)

The Prophet continued to set this example throughout his life, even to the point of forgiving several people who tried to kill him.

In one incident, a woman came to the Prophet and fed him with a poisoned sheep. When the Prophet began to suffer and it was discovered what she had done, the companions asked him if they should kill her. In this case, it would have been a justified retaliation against attempted murder, but the Prophet pardoned her instead.

Anas ibn Malik reported:

“A Jewish woman came to the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, with a poisoned sheep and he ate from it. She was brought to him and he asked her about it. She said, “”I wanted to kill you.” The Prophet said: “Allah has given you no authority over me.” It was said, “Should we kill her?” The Prophet said: No.” (Sahih Bukhari 2474)

In another incident, a man from an opposing tribe attempted to kill the Prophet while he was sleeping. Allah miraculously saved the Prophet by causing the man’s hand to slip, after which the Prophet gained power him. Even so, in this position of strength the Prophet continued to show clemency.

Jabir reported:

“We took part in the expedition with the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, against Najd and when the time for afternoon rest approached, he was in a valley of thorny trees. He dismounted under a tree to rest in its shade and hung his sword upon it. The people dispersed among the trees in order to use their shade. While we were like this, the Prophet called us and we came to find a Bedouin sitting in front of him. The Prophet said: “This person came to me while I was asleep and he quietly took my sword. I woke up while he was standing over my head, holding my unsheathed sword. He said: Who will protect you from me? I said three times: Allah.” Jabir said: “The Prophet did not punish him and he sat down.” (Sahih Bukhari 2753)

In another narration, the Prophet said to the man:

“Will you bear witness that there is no God but Allah and I am the Messenger of Allah”? The man said, “No, but I give you my word that I will not fight you and I will not join anyone who is fighting you.” So the Prophet let him go. The man returned to his people and said: “I have just come to you from the best of people!” (Musnad Ahmad 14768)

The man was impressed by the Prophet’s character so much that he returned to his people and praised him. This is an excellent example of how mercy and forgiveness are among the best deeds for winning the hearts and minds to Islam.

In one of the most famous incidents, the Prophet finally gained power over his enemies after being persecuted for 23 years. He could have easily ordered their execution and the companions would have complied. However, the Prophet used this moment to teach the lesson of mercy just as Yusuf (Joseph), peace be upon him, had forgiven his brothers.

Al-Qasim ibn Salim reported:

“When they came to the Ka’bah they were holding onto its door and the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “What do you say? What do you think”? They said three times, “We say you are the son of our brother.” The Prophet said: “I say to you as Joseph said to his brothers: No blame upon you today. Allah will forgive you and He is the most merciful of the merciful.” (12:92)

Abu Yusuf reported:

“When they had gathered in front of the sacred Mosque, the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “What do you think I will do with you”? They said, “Only good, O noble brother, son of a noble brother.” The Prophet said: “Go, you are free.” (Sunan Al-Kubra of al-Bayhaqi 17714).

All of this evidence indicates the general rule that Muslims should respond to blasphemy with patience, forbearance, and graceful discussion. We need to behave in the serene manner of the Prophet as well as publish articles, set up websites, and otherwise spread authentic information about his life and teachings.

That said, the classical ruling in Islamic law imposes the death penalty upon those who blaspheme against Islam. This ruling is derived from handful of instances in which the Prophet executed some people for treason, not for merely insulting Islam.

For example, the Prophet ordered the execution of Ka’ab ibn Al-Ashraf as he conspired to wage war against Madinah. Ka’ab also wrote poetry satirizing the Prophet and his Companions, although this was not his only offence. Rather, he posed an imminent danger to the Muslim community due to his support for gathering an army.

Badr ud-Din Al-Ayni comments on the story of Ka’ab and other narrations:

“In these traditions it is shown that they were not killed merely for their insults. Indeed, they were only killed due to their aid of the enemy and gathering together for war and supporting it.” (Umdat al-Qari fi Sharh Sahih Al-Bukhari 34/413)

This was the general social and political context within which the classical ruling against blasphemy had developed.

Intisar Rabb, a one-time director of Harvard University’s Islamic Legal Studies programme, explains:

“The rationale underlying this rule was an argument linking several steps. To curse God was to blaspheme Him, which was implicitly to signal a departure from the community of Muslims and the laws governing them. The presumption was that a person could not possibly be a Muslim, fitting squarely within its system of laws and confessing to the oneness and supremacy of God, if he or she at the same time cursed God. The same applied to cursing the Prophet, the family of the Prophet, and the revered Companions of the Prophet. For (the jurists), if religious speech acts akin to confessing the Muslim creed reflected societal commitments to uphold the law, much as an oath of citizenship might in the contemporary world, then renouncing such an oath would conceptually signal a threat or possibility of treason, combat against the state, and opposition to the social order itself. In other words, members of the Muslim community under Muslim rule were expected to play by its rules, including its call to honour reputation, lineage, and religious status. For the jurists, signaling absolution from those expectations could very well pose a threat of violence against the state and its public order or rule of law.” (See Ellis Mark S. 2012 Islamic law and international human rights law: searching for common ground? P. 158/164)

Therefore, it is not mere blasphemy that warrants the death penalty, but rather only when it is combined with acts of treason and sedition.

There is one particular proof-text being used in support of vigilante violence which we must critically examine. Extremists and Mob cite this narration in isolation and without context to justify the murder of anyone who insults the Prophet. The fault in their interpretation results from their attempt to derive a legal ruling from an anomalous narration and in disregard for general rules and principles firmly established in stronger texts.

Ibn Abbas reported:

“A blind man had a lady servant who would abuse the Prophet and disparage him. He forbade her from doing it but she did not stop. He rebuked her and she still did not stop. One night she was reviling the Prophet, so he took a dagger and pressed it on her stomach and killed her. In the morning, it was mentioned to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him and he said: “I ask by Allah and by my right over whoever did this to stand up.” The blind man said, “O Messenger of Allah, I am her master and she used to abuse and disparage you. I forbade her but she did not stop, and I rebuked her but she did not stop. I have two sons like pearls from her and she was my companion. Last night she began to abuse you and disparage you, so I took a dagger and pressed it on her stomach until she died.” The Prophet said: “Bear witness that there is no punishment for her killing.” (Sunan Abu Dawud 4361)

There are problems with this narration both in its chain of authorities and in the text itself. This is a solitary (Ahad) narration coming by route of the sub-narrator Uthman Ash-Shaham who is widely regarded as trustworthy, but upon whom some scholars have cast doubt.

Yusuf ibn Abdur Rahman Al-Mizzi reported:

“An-Nasa’i said: from what I have read, Uthman Ash-Shaham is not strong. And he said on other topics there is nothing wrong with him.” (Tahdhib Al-Kamal 5495)

An –Nasa’i expressed doubt on Uthman Ash-Shaham’s ability to narrate about certain topics. In addition, Al-Bukhari, the leading scholar of prophetic narrations, did not narrate from him. Certainly a narration involving such strong legal implications should be narrated by a wide range of authorities whose capabilities are beyond question, yet this is not the case. It is possible that Uthman Ash-Shaham made an error relating the narration’s context, details, and implication.

Furthermore, there is a degree of anomaly (shadh) in this narration as it apparently contradicts several of the verses and traditions we previously mentioned. An anomalous narration is one that is related from trustworthy sources, but is contradicted by stronger sources.

Ibn Salah reported:

“Ash-Shafi’i said: An anomalous narration is not one that has been narrated by a single trustworthy person and not narrated by others. Rather, and anomalous narration is a report from a trustworthy person that contradicts what is narrated from other people.”  (Ulum Al-Hadith of Ibn Salah)

The fact that this narration contradicts what is authentically and abundantly reported elsewhere should make us very cautious about deriving a general rule from it.

And if we accept the narration as authentic (sahih) or at least trustworthy (hasan), as most scholars of prophetic narrations have done, then we must understand it in proper context and in agreement with the abundance of conflicting evidence.

This single incident occurred at time when the Makkans were waging war against Madinah. Repeated and stubborn expressions of defamation against the Prophet during this time would have strongly implied sympathy with the enemy forces. This means the woman potentially would have been in a position to relay sensitive information to the enemy, such as troop movements, which could have placed the entire community in danger. Consistent with the whole of Islamic scripture, we should conclude that her offence involved not simply insults on account of her bad character, but rather a repudiation of her loyalty to the community.

Moreover, the Prophet did not command or prescribe her execution. He initially considered it an evil deed that demanded an explanation. Upon hearing that the woman had posed a threat to the community, he only judged that the man not be punished for murder in this particular case, this makes the narration a description of a localized event rather than a universal prescription for all cases.

As such, we should not extract from this narration the idea that common Muslims may punish blasphemy against Islam without legal authorization. Islam does not authorize individual Muslims to appropriate for themselves the role of judge, jury, and executioner. It is a well-established principle in Islam that legal punishment may only be carried out by authorities who act upon due process. This solitary narration cannot be used to overturn this essential principle of Islamic law.

Does this mean that blasphemy should be tolerated in every case? Free speech is not merely a human right, but rather it is a responsibility. The purpose of free speech is to facilitate discussion in search of truth and justice. Consequently, the general rule is that people are free to speak their minds respectfully, but speech that serves no purpose other than to slander, defame, offend, or incite to violence is not worthy of protection. Indeed, the Muslims have been prohibited from cursing other religions and evens idols.

Allah said

“Do not insult those they invoke besides Allah, lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge.” (Surah Al-An’am 6:108)

For this reason, many Muslim countries have statutes against defaming Islam as well as Judaism, Christianity, and other religions, as this harms the cohesion of peaceful communities. Most countries in the world impose legal or at least social restraints on free speech with laws against slander and defamation, as well as what they consider “blasphemy,” such as the many European countries that prohibit profaning the memory of the Holocaust.

Muslims and all people should respect such limits as it is the responsibility of good citizens to refrain from harming social order and peace.

However, the best way to counter false speech is by speaking the truth. The problem of blasphemy can usually be remedied by a number of peaceful solutions such as publishing articles, setting up websites, holding conferences, and arguing with good manners. Every non-violent means should be used to counter blasphemous speech before resorting to legal action and especially the death penalty. No doubt, the least likely to resort to killing are the true believers.

Ibn Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

“The most restrained of the people regarding killing are the people of faith.” (Musnad Ahmad 3720)

Muslims must avoid calling for the death penalty whenever possible, because indulgence in this matter indicates a lack of strong faith.

We also need to view this matter from the legal principle of public welfare (maslahah mursalah). Ibn Taymiyyah defines this principle as follows:

”The principle of public welfare is the case when a distinguished jurist views another action as more likely to bring benefit and there is nothing in the law to negate it.” (Majmu’Al-fatawa 11/342)

In so many cases, we see that the prosecution of blasphemy can cause greater harm to the community and the image of Islam than the blasphemy itself. We have a precedent in the practice of the Prophet to withhold such punishments when they cause greater harm.

Jabir ibn Abdullah reported:

“A man came to the Messenger of Allah on his way back from Hunain while there was some silver in the backpack of Bilal. The Messenger of Allah took a handful from it and distributed it among the people. The man said to him, “O Muhammad! Be just!” Umar ibn Al-Khattab said, “O Messenger of Allah, allow me to kill this hypocrite!” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “I seek refuge in Allah that the people will say I am killing my Companions.” (Sahih Muslim 1063)

In this case, the Prophet refused to punish a dangerous man, a hypocrite who was pretending to be a Muslim in order to attack the community from within, on the grounds that it would have harmed the image of Islam in the eyes of the people.

Likewise, the age of instant communication ensures that cases of blasphemy are no longer confined to local areas, but instead they have global implications. Prosecution for mere childish insults and thoughtless, impromptu remarks, without evidence of treasonous intent, only project an image of Islam as intolerant and draconian. Rather, judges need to carefully consider the unintended consequences and they must justify any prosecution in terms greater than mere insults and hurt feelings.

Furthermore, we have the lessons of history which compel us to seek mitigation and restriction of the classical blasphemy law. Numerous Muslim scholars were imprisoned and persecuted because their views were considered “blasphemy” by the ruling regime. Most notably is the case of Ahmad ibn Hanbal who was imprisoned and tortured by the ruling Mu’tazilte regime for his alleged blasphemy of affirming the Quran was uncreated. An uncompromising and loosely interpreted blasphemy statute increases the possibility of it being misused by a corrupt regime to victimize callers to truth.

Therefore it is not permissible for a Muslim without judicial authority to implement Islamic legal punishments on his own initiative. Vigilante justice, or “taking the law into your own hands,” is unlawful in Islam because it will lead to chaos and possibly greater harm than the crimes themselves. Likewise, it is not permissible for a Muslim to declare war or to commit an act of war without lawful authority.

Abu Hurairah reported: Sa’ad ibn Ubadah said:

“O Messenger of Allah, if I find another man with my wife, should I leave him alone until I bring four witnesses?” The Prophet said yes, Sa’ad said, “Never! By the one who sent you with the truth, if that happened to me I would quickly grab the sword!” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: Listen to what your leader is saying.” (Sahih Muslim 1498)

In this example, the Prophet has forbidden a man who witnesses his wife committing adultery from implementing legal punishment by his own initiative. This is because legal punishments may only be applied by appointed judges and because the punishment for adultery requires the testimony of four reliable witnesses.

Ibn Muflih writes:

“It is forbidden to establish a legal punishment unless it is done by the leader or his deputy.” (See Al-Furu’ 6/53)

Sheikh Hani Al-jubayr, judge at the Jeddah Supreme Court, writes:

“The prescribed punishments in Islamic Law are only to be issued by the judge, since due process and proper procedures of evidence must be observed. They must thereafter only be carried out by properly empowered government officials. Otherwise things will deteriorate into public violence that may bring about dire consequences.”

Therefore, a Muslim who witnesses a crime (any kind) should inform the local authorities who will take appropriate action. He should never attempt to implement legal punishments on his own.

Sheikh Ahmad Deedat said:

“The biggest enemy of Islam is the ignorant Muslim, whose ignorance leads him to intolerance, whose actions destroy the true image of Islam, and when the people look at him they think that Islam is what he is.”

In conclusion, numerous verses and traditions in Islam demonstrate that the general rule for responding to blasphemy is to counter it with patience, forbearance, and speaking the truth in a beautiful manner. Muslims ought to behave this way in the overwhelming majority of cases.

The only exception to this rule is derived from the specific cases in which the Prophet punished some people for treason in addition to their harmful utterances. We must not expand this specific rule to all cases, thereby negating the general teachings of mercy, patience, and tolerance.

            A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties;
            no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained
            by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

            The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that
            the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and
            blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge.

            True religion is real living; living with all one’s soul, with all one’s goodness and righteousness.

            Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future:
            it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual,
            and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual,
            as a meaningful unity.

          My Brother, since you claim to know Bible, how many people did Jesus kill? I am sure you know Jesus had twelve disciples, how many unbelievers did they kill? Note: the Bible is divided into old and new testaments. Yes, in old testament, God commanded the Israelites to kill in some cases but in the new testament, The says: for God so love the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Jn 3:16. If you love your neighbour, will you kill him/her? This is why I always argue that Christians and Muslims are not serving the same God. I call on you to give your life to Jesus Christ and be saved. Only Jesus can save.

          • amazing2012

            There is no single evidence or record of any kind that my beloved prophet ever use his hand to harm any human or animal. I am sure it will surprise you, because you are programmed to believe the opposite.
            Old Testament ?
            Matthew 5:17-19ESV “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. {Luke 18:18:21}18A certain ruler asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
            19“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 20You know the commandments: ‘You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother. 21“All these I have kept since I was a boy,” he said.
            Again, why do pastors respect the verses that authorize Collecting tithes reported in the Old Testament ?
            What is serving God ? Obedience to his teachings in faith and work !
            Yes surely we are not serving the same God. Christians serve Jesus and his mother( and their idols) while Muslims acknowledge Jesus and his mother with dignity, respect and honor but serve their omnipotent God !

            A Christian can commit sin and still claimed Jesus. In Christianity of today there is no single act that can be traced to Jesus Christ. Only using his name to commit sin. They have change everything Jesus brought.
            Unfortunately, The religion Jesus brought, which is submission to God, is a faith that do not believe in forgiveness of sin after death. According to teachings of Christians of today once a sinner is in hell, he/she may not come out thereafter. And their is no small sin. All sins are equal in punishment. This made it almost impossible to have a Christian who will die without single sin that will take him/her to hell (permanently).

            mention one Christians attitude is not pagan today !
            Only Muslims are different from the the unity above !!

          • Ogalla Ojonugwa

            Very interesting my Brother. I still maintain that you lack proper understanding of the Bible. In all you have writing, you have not yet answer my questions. Did Jesus Christ kill anybody? All the sins of Christians above are equally found in Islam. And worst still, the killing of innocent people. All over the world Muslims are known for that. If truly you believe in Jesus, why do you discard his teachings? As a matter of fact, Christians are not suppose to be arguing with Muslims. The people Christians are suppose to debate with are the Jews(The people of the book)

          • amazing2012

            Again you dodge my question: Mention one Christians attitude that is not pagan today ! Just one !!
            On Jesus killing any body there is no such place just as there is no such record on my beloved prophet. Curiously, bible records Jesus beating and canning money changers and gamblers, turning and breaking their tables. This is according to Islamic teaching is it not true. Because Islam respect Jesus and believed he cannot behave like “abegro or drunkard”. But the bible and the Christians humiliated him. When you watch on Utube how he was dramatized you will come to believe it is insane to portray Jesus as area boy”. Even Charley boy (the area father) cannot do that.
            “And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,”Matthew 21:12
            “And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; -Mark 11:15
            On argument with the Jews: why do you think the Christians don’t argue with Jews but unite against Muslims ? And probably don’t argue with any religous body except Muslims arguing with all the united faiths ? Is it because we have only two religion: Islam and the rest (in unity).
            “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? -2 Corinthians 6:14”.

            A Christian can commit sin and still claimed Jesus. In Christianity of today there is no single act that can be traced to Jesus Christ. Only using his name to commit sin. They have change everything Jesus brought.
            Unfortunately, The religion Jesus brought, which is submission to God, is a faith that do not believe in forgiveness of sin after death. According to teachings of Christians of today once a sinner is in hell, he/she may not come out thereafter. And their is no small sin. All sins are equal in punishment. This made it almost impossible to have a Christian who will die without single sin that will take him/her to hell (permanently).
            Please answer this question:
            mention one Christians attitude is not pagan today !
            Only Muslims are different from the the unity above !!

          • Ogalla Ojonugwa

            Do you know the meaning of ChrChristian? A Christian is a true follower of Christ and his teachings. A Christian is someone whose sins are forgiven through the blood of Jesus. A Christian is someone who run away from sin. Let us talk about Jesus Christ and the Bible. Does the teachings of Jesus Christ permit those sins you listed? Read Matt. 7:21-23. Jesus said not all that calls him Lord, Lord will enter the kingdom of God but those that does the will of his father. A Christian has nothing to do with those sins you listed above. Anybody who does those things is not a Christian. Christian has no similarly with Pagans, Muslims, and other religion, except Judaism. Islam is a formed religion. In Islam, you will see Judaism, Idolatry and Christianity. This is why i said Christians don’t have to debate with Muslims, because they are not part of God’s receptive plan. The promise of God is to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God did not say a prophet will come from Ishmael.

        • emmanuel

          That is the problem with you, The letter kills, but the spirit gives life. To the blind, the things of the spirit are indiscernible.

      Religion is like going out to dinner with friends. Everyone may order something different,
      but everyone can still sit at the same table. This is my simple religion: There is
      no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own
      heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.

      • amazing2012

        Also by these attitude you should the true followers of Christ:
        TELL ME THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PAGANS AND CHRISTIANS IN WORK NOT PRETENDING OF FAITH !
        “…and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works” REVELATION 20:13.
        “Ye see then that by works a man is justified, not by faith only. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also” JAMES 2:26
        For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. -James 2:26
        But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? -James 2:20
        Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. -James 2:17
        And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. -Romans 8:10
        Matthew 5:17-19ESV “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. {Luke 18:18:21}18A certain ruler asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
        19“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 20You know the commandments: ‘You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother. 21“All these I have kept since I was a boy,” he said
        “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? -2 Corinthians 6:14”. But Christians accept every pagan to fight only one that have not York with unbelievers (Islam). You can never hear a pagan calling his religious center or identity Islamic but they can all call themselves Christians. For instance: Latter Day Saints, Jehova witness, church of devil, illuminaties, naked church(USA).
        Tell me the difference between Christians and pagans on the following:
        1. Alcoholism
        2. Idol worship/hanging-worshipping Cross: worshiping pastors etc
        3. Premarital sex, even in church or by church leadership. Now we have anointed condoms distributed by church. Please google!

All we are saying here is don’t try to be an extremist, It will cost you your life. See what happened to the founder of your terrorist Al-Qaeda group, Osama bin Laden.

            (1) Pedophilism:
            First, Mary mother of your God was married to Joseph Capenter when she was 12 and he was 99 years, the difference of 87 years. This mean your God is a Product pedophilism.
            Now read your bible on toto love !!
            1. Judges 21:12″And they found among the inhabitants of Jabesh-FOUR HUNDRED VIRGINS(400), that had known no man by lying with any male: and they brought them unto the camp to Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan ”
            2. Wherefore his servants said unto him, Let there be sought for my lord the king a YOUNG VIRGIN: and let her stand before the king, and let her cherish him, and let her lie in thy bosom, that my lord the king may get heat. -1 Kings 1:2
            3. Matthew 19: 29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
            100 houses,brothers,fathers, mothers, WIVES(100 Virgins) , children, lands ?
            (2) Alqaida:
            Osama is not the founder of Alqaida, Christian western world founded the group, give them weapons, trained them and finance their operations.
            Recently in Nigeria, members of one church in the region you regards poor were arrested for stealing $14 million US dollars. Please who is giving them this huge amount of money ? Of course Israel to finance Boko terrorist operations !!

So it was that on the seventh day the battle was joined; and the children of Israel killed one hundred thousand foot soldiers of the Syrians in one day. But the rest fled to Aphek, into the city; then a wall fell on twenty-seven thousand of the men who were left. (NKJV) Joshua 8:24-26

(NLT) Deuteronomy 2:32-34

  • John Wayne

    This is a lot of gibberish from this Islamic writer. He denied the part where Muhammed praised a murderer for killing a woman for so called blasphemy and tried to twist it to say that it was only an isolated incident. There are many more cases that show how that murderous prophet called Mohammed killed and beheaded people unjustly. So those people in Kano who killed and beheaded the Igbo woman are only following the footsteps of Muhammed. The truth is that Islam is a false religion which was established by Muhammed who was deceived by a demon masquerading as an angel of light

    • Henry_Itopa

      Please cite where you saw this in the Quran. There is so much falsehood out there against Islam and people of low intelligence have swallowed it whole. Remember one of God’s commandments: Thou shalt not bear false witness

    • Muslim

      May the light of knowledge quell your ignorance. If you only took the time to research and ponder, you will learn that as the writer above has shown: (1) The general rule was that the Prophet did not punish people for insults to, or rudeness to his person. Indeed, he was much insulted, by both pagans and hypocrites pretending to follow him. On numerous occasions, his closest companions sought his permission to punish the offenders – he always denied them permission. (2) People who have dedicated their lives to extracting legal principles from the example of the Prophet have taken the position that the incident of the blind man killing his female servant is no basis for a legal principle – how can you then insist that this so-called incident justifies vigilante killing? I challenge you to please provide the other examples where the Prophet “killed and beheaded people unjustly”. Again, may the light of knowledge quell your ignorance.

      • John Wayne

        There are quite a lot I can show of how Mohammed killed people left right and centre. To start with, why did a blood thirsty man like Muhammed beheaded hundreds of the Qurayza Jewish tribe? Groups like boko haram and the Islamic state are only following in his footsteps

      • Onike24

        You are wasting your time, bigots are impervious to reason. And this includes bigoted Muslims; they are refuse to reason, how many times was the Prophet insulted? We cannot count, and some idiots kill someone because she asked them not to perform abolition on her doorstep?

        If you are deluded and have chosen not to read and remain ignorant, well it is nobody’s problem.wars have been fought across the world,check those who have wage the most wars.the west are are predominantly Christians,have you checked how many that were killed during the fist and second world war,the war in Iraq ,Afghanistan,Yemen,Libya,Syria etc were waged by the Muslim?Islam is rh most peaceful religion having ruled the whole world before do your reseach

    • Walter

      Do you know anything about the crusade? I am a Christian and honestly throughout history, Christians have killed more non believers than this recent Muslims stunt.

  • RestructureNigeriaNow

    Enough of this religion nonsense. Allah said? When? Humans where the author of these books we kill each other for.
    The black race is doom unless we woke up and see true God. Yes there is God but his ways are not dictated by humans who called and continue to call themselves prophets.
    God is the Great Unknown. Live a good life and let God take care of the rest. No church no mosque- that has kept us backward for ages. Just be good and that is all we need.
    However, for Nigeria to move forward..Nigeria must be restructured #RestructureNigeriaNow

      Nabi Mohammed is a false prophet of Baal.

      Let me tell you what is going to happen next from these bigots. They are going to insist that Blasphemy Laws be put in the constitution. You will see APC Christians including Osibajo agreeing. Since we all serve one God they will tell you if you blaspheme (Christian or Islamic Deity) it becomes a criminal offence. That is where this Islamic, Hausa-Fulani nut heads from Northern Nigeria are moving us. Let us thank the British for doing this to us.

      • Onike24

        But the article says there are no blasphemy laws!

  • Fatai

    Thanks, for the facts reeled out, PT should be particularly appreciated for providing the space to educate people!

    • Emmanuel

      Facts? he left the relevant quranic injunctions that tell you to kill such persons. I am not playing religion here, but Islam is evil QED!
      Onike the Islamic fundamentalist please speak.

      • Onike24

        ???? You know I always ignore bigots…

        • Otile

          You mean infidels that utter blasphemy? You know very well that you are worshiping idol.

      • Garba sani

        A very wonderful write up and I think the whole point is clear now that those who kill in the name of islam are really ignorant of Islamic teaching and are simply criminals. The wise and educated in this forum will immensely benefit from this write up while the wayward will only go further astray. Thank you so much. Any one that wants to repeal what the writer said should fortify his points with quoted evidence and reference not usual illiterate words.

        • Otile

          Nobody benefited anything from this wordy article. The idea of blasphemy is lunacy. Mohammedans, join hands with Imam Abu Shekau and form your Islamic Republic and leave us alone. You all are misguided by the satanic verses from the pedophile nabi Mohammed.

      • Abdulmojeed Nojeemdeen

        M t skull

    • Ade

      Killing is valid in the religion of blood-islam

      Quran (33:57) – “Lo! those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah has cursed them in this world and the Hereafter, and has prepared for them the doom of the disdained”

      Quran (33:61) – [continues from above] “Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.

      Bukhari (4:241) – Those who mocked Muhammad at Mecca were killed after he had retaken the city and asserted his authority.

    • Otile

      Educate ignorant people on blasphemy? You are crazy.

  • yemi

    Shocking article. I read this patiently waiting for the point the author will say that ‘regardless of islamic doctrine, the constitution supersedes in the application of law’.

    Those words never came.

    This article reads as though what the Quran says matters in this case. It does not. And this I believe is the foundation of the problem of islam and the doctrine of violence. The idea that muslims can somehow find justification in the Quran for their acts. Even when such acts clearly breaks the constituted laws of society.

    It does not matter how well the Quran preaches peace. The author by finding comfort in the ‘truth of peace in the Quran’ only makes this debate into a back and forth with those who feel they have the right to kill in the name of ‘their god’. Then it becomes a matter of doctrines. And not a matter of constituted laws of society.

    Dear PT,

    This article should have been 1 paragraph. It should have just called the killers murderers. And emphasized on the need to follow the constituted laws of society.

    • Bigtin

      Brilliant!

    • DevilsAdvocate

      Yeah. Better point

    • Onike24

      Do you understand that the man was saying? We all know what the penal code says about murder, but how many people know the Islamic point of view with regards to ” Blesphemy” and if it can be Justfication for such a heinous act. The killers are murderers full stop; no ifs, no buts.

      • yemi

        Do you also understand what I am saying? That it does not matter what Islam says in this context, justified or not. That discussion is itself invalid and only makes those who feel differently to say its just a matter of doctrine.

        We dont need to understand what islam says about blasphemy. It is irrelevant in a secular country governed by secular laws.

        • Onike24

          You are quite right when you argue that the Islamic point of view is not the determinant factor in this crime. However, the article seeks to explain that even within the context of the faith, which the perpertuators of this heinous crime profess, they are EQUALLY AS CRIMINAL. How can we ever have peaceful coexistence when we are not informed about the faith of the “other”? Just so you know I don’t agree wholeheartedly with the article but I believe that the writer should be commended for taking the time to show what in his opinion the Islamic position to the so called blasphemy” laws is.

          • yemi

            Yes of course. The article in that perspective was quite informative.

          • Otile

            The article is a crock of bullshit. Yeah, behead people because of blasphemy.

          • Otile

            Why are you mohammedans so pig-headed? Blasphemy this, blasphemy that, blasphemy nonsense. In your islamic cult blasphemy is interpreted as perceived insult to Arab god, Allah, nothing more. May thunder strike you_idiots that support killing people for your so-called blasphemy.

            Yeah, give him national award for justifying silly blasphemy. Lunatics.

          • Onike24

            Otile, the bigot continue your ranting….

          • Otile

            I am not a bigot, and you know it. Beheading is barbaric. Blasphemy has no place in a civilized society.

          • Abdulmojeed Nojeemdeen

            What else do you transgressor wanted.the action has been condemned by the president down to to the neccesary quarters. Yet you opened your wide mouth to criticize someone who wrote to denounce heinous crime.criminals like you are guaranteed a big place in the hell for your sturboness and crookedness. Devil!

          • Otile

            You and your mad founder pedophile Mohammed are doomed for eternal hell fire. He is already there waiting for you.

          • Garba sani

            And that’s why we said the illiterates and ignorants like you should shut up their dirty mouth? I am sure you don’t know what the word pedophile means and that’s why you mentioned it, other wise who are the perpetual and unrepentant pedophile other than Christian bishops and popes.
            Pope had to apologize publicly for victims of church molestation front and back boys and girls and had to establish a compensation fund to settle the victims and abused people.
            All the these facts are clear to all who wants to know. Simple search on the internet will reveal that like the pope apologies for church covered molestation over centuries.

            The bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, resigned in April 2010 after admitting that he had sexually abused a boy for years when he was a priest and after being made a bishop.
            The scandal drew in the former head of the Catholic Church in Belgium, Cardinal Godfried Danneels, who had advised the victim in April not to go public with his story until Vangheluwe had retired in 2011.
            After the Vangheluwe case came to light, a commission set up to investigate the extent of abuse in the Belgian Church received a flood of calls.
            Police controversially raided the commission and Church offices, suspecting some evidence was being covered up – but this move was ruled illegal by a Belgian court.
            In September 2010 the head of the commission released harrowing details of some 300 cases of alleged sexual abuse by Belgian clergy.
            The abuse was found in nearly every diocese, and 13 alleged victims had committed suicide, he said.
            However, he found no indication that the Church had systematically sought to cover up cases.
            The Church pledged to set up a victims’ support centre in a first attempt to rebuild public trust, and to co-operate more with the police.
            IRELAND
            Two major reports into allegations of paedophilia among Irish clergy last year revealed the shocking extent of abuse, cover-ups and hierarchical failings involving thousands of victims, and stretching back decades.
            In one, four Dublin archbishops were found to have effectively turned a blind eye to cases of abuse from 1975 to 2004.
            The Dublin archdiocese, it said, operated in a culture of concealment, placing the integrity of its institutions above the welfare of the children in its care.
            In the wake of the report, all Irish bishops were summoned to the Vatican to give an account of themselves in person before the Pope.
            Four bishops, named in the report, handed in their resignations. The Pope accepted two but told the other two he wanted them to continue.
            Six months earlier, another report – the result of a nine-year investigation – documented some six decades of physical, sexual and emotional abuse at residential institutions run by 18 religious orders.
            With the Church still reeling from the reports’ findings, a fresh scandal erupted in March 2010 when it emerged the head of the Irish Catholic Church, Cardinal Sean Brady, was present at meetings in 1975 where children signed vows of silence over complaints against a paedophile priest, Fr Brendan Smyth.
            Cardinal Brady resisted calls to resign but issued an apology for mishandling the matter.
            A few days later, on 20 March, Pope Benedict XVI apologised to victims of child sex abuse by Catholic priests in Ireland.

            A series of scandals involving child sex abuse by priests has rocked the Catholic Church around the world.
            The Catholic Church has faced a raft of allegations of child sex abuse by priests and an inadequate response by bishops. Here is a round-up of some of those events:
            BELGIUM
            The bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, resigned in April 2010 after admitting that he had sexually abused a boy for years when he was a priest and after being made a bishop.
            The scandal drew in the former head of the Catholic Church in Belgium, Cardinal Godfried Danneels, who had advised the victim in April not to go public with his story until Vangheluwe had retired in 2011.

            IRELAND
            Two major reports into allegations of paedophilia among Irish clergy last year revealed the shocking extent of abuse, cover-ups and hierarchical failings involving thousands of victims, and stretching back decades.
            In one, four Dublin archbishops were found to have effectively turned a blind eye to cases of abuse from 1975 to 2004.
            The Dublin archdiocese, it said, operated in a culture of concealment, placing the integrity of its institutions above the welfare of the children in its care.

            Cardinal Brady resisted calls to resign but issued an apology for mishandling the matter.
            A few days later, on 20 March, Pope Benedict XVI apologised to victims of child sex abuse by Catholic priests in Ireland.
            He then accepted the resignation of Bishop John Magee, an aide to three popes before being assigned to Ireland, who was found to have mishandled allegations of clerical sex abuse in his County Cork diocese.
            Pope Benedict has now appointed a panel of nine prelates to investigate child abuse in Ireland’s Catholic institutions.
            UNITED STATES
            Over the past two decades, the Roman Catholic Church in the US – with the archdiocese of Boston in particular – has been embroiled in a series of child sex scandals.
            There was public outrage after abuses in the 1990s by two Boston priests, Paul Shanley and John Geoghan, came to light, with suspicions that Church leaders had sought to cover up their crimes by moving them from post to post.
            In 2002 the then-Pope John Paul II called an emergency meeting with US cardinals, but allegations continued to emerge.
            Despite an apology and pledge to take a tougher line, Archbishop Bernard Law resigned over the scandal at the end of the year.
            In September 2003, the Boston archdiocese – the fourth-largest in the US – agreed to pay $85m to settle more than 500 civil suits accusing priests of sexual abuse and church officials of concealment.
            A report commissioned by the Church the following year said more than 4,000 US Roman Catholic priests had faced sexual abuse allegations in the last 50 years, in cases involving more than 10,000 children – mostly boys.
            A series of huge payouts has been made by US diocese to alleged victims of abuse – the largest being some $660m from the Los Angeles Archdiocese in 2007.
            During a tour of the US in 2008, the Pope met privately with victims of abuse by priests and spoke of “the pain and the harm inflicted by the sexual abuse of minors”.
            In March 2010 documents emerged suggesting that Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, before he became Pope, failed to respond to letters from US clergy about cases of alleged child sex abuse by a priest in Wisconsin.
            Archbishops had complained about Fr Lawrence Murphy in 1996 to a Vatican office led by the future Pope, but apparently received no response.
            Fr Murphy, who died in 1998, is suspected of having abused some 200 boys at St John’s School for the Deaf in St Francis, Wisconsin, between 1950 and 1974.
            One of his alleged victims told the BBC the Pope had known for years about the accusations yet failed to take action.
            GERMANY
            Since the start of 2010, at least 300 people have made allegations of sexual or physical abuse by priests across the Pope’s home country.
            Claims are being investigated in 18 of Germany’s 27 Roman Catholic dioceses.
            Accusations include the abuse of more than 170 children by priests at Jesuit schools, three Catholic schools in Bavaria, and within the Regensburg Domspatzen school boys’ choir that was directed for 30 years by Monsignor Georg Ratzinger, the Pope’s brother.
            In June, prosecutors said they were investigating the head of Germany’s Roman Catholic bishops. Archbishop Robert Zollitsch of Freiburg is suspected of allowing the re-appointment of a priest accused of child abuse in 1987. The archdiocese rejected the charge.
            In March, Father Peter Hullermann, who was convicted of molesting boys during his time in the archdiocese of Munich and Freising, was suspended from his duties after breaching a ban on working with children.
            Days earlier, the Pope’s former diocese said Benedict had unwittingly approved housing for Fr Hullermann when serving as archbishop of Munich; the Vatican denounced what it called “aggressive” efforts to link the Pope to the scandal.
            The Regensburg diocese confirmed on 22 March new allegations of child sexual abuse against four priests and two nuns, saying most of the incidents occurred in the 1970s.
            Two days later the German government announced it was forming a committee of experts to investigate all the abuse claims.
            ITALY
            In June 2010 a high-profile former priest was charged with sexual abuse.
            Pierino Gelmini, 85, is alleged to have abused 12 young people at a drug rehabilitation centre he founded.
            Meanwhile, a number of deaf men have come forward to say they were abused as children at the Antonio Provolo Institute for the Deaf in the northern city of Verona between the 1950s and the 1980s.
            The allegations were first reported in the Italian press in January 2009.
            Later last year the Associated Press news agency obtained a written statement from 67 of the school’s former pupils naming 24 priests, brothers and lay religious men who they accused of sexual abuse, paedophilia and corporal punishment.
            The diocese of Verona said it intended to interview the victims following a request from the Vatican to do so.
            NETHERLANDS
            In March 2010, Dutch bishops ordered an independent inquiry into more than 200 allegations of sexual abuse of children by priests, in addition to three cases dating from 1950 to 1970.
            Allegations first centred on Don Rua monastery school in the eastern Netherlands, with people saying they were abused by Catholic priests in the 1960s and 70s.
            This prompted dozens more alleged victims from other institutions to come forward.
            AUSTRIA
            A series of claims of sexual abuse by priests has emerged in the Vorarlberg region.
            Some 16 people have reported 27 alleged incidents there, spanning half a century.
            Ten children are also alleged to have been abused at a monastery in Mehrerau in the 1970s and early 80s.
            Meanwhile five priests at a monastery in Kremsmuenster in Upper Austria have been suspended after complaints of sexual and physical abuse of boys there.
            Separately, the head of a Salzburg monastery, Bruno Becker, resigned after confessing to having abused a boy 40 years ago, when he was a monk.
            SWITZERLAND
            A commission set up by the Swiss Bishops Conference in 2002 has been investigating allegations of abuse involving the Catholic Church there.
            A member of the commission, Abbot Martin Werlen, said in a newspaper interview this month that about 60 people have said they were abused by Catholic priests. The alleged incidents are reported to have occurred over the past 15 years.
            A priest in the canton of Thurgau was arrested on 19 March on suspicion of sexual abuse of minors, police said.
            MALTA
            Three priests have been accused of sexually abusing 10 orphan children in Malta during the 1980s and 1990s.
            Pope Benedict visited the island in April and held an emotional meeting with victims, pledging to bring those responsible to justice and to protect young people in the future.
            SPAIN
            Police have launched an investigation into three members of staff at a care home run by a Catholic order.
            There have also been formal accusations against a Carmelite monk in eastern Spain and Franciscan brothers in the south.

            @Onike,

            Without insulting any religion here out of respect, don’t you think the issuing of a Fatwa by Islamic Religious figures against any human is CONDEMNABLE ??

            It was this Fatwa that was issued that made that Deranged Moron kill Charlie Hedgo (The Cartonist) in France .

            A Fatwa was also issued against Salmon Rushdie of England for writing a book — The Satanic Verses.

            ALL THESE FATWAS are what’s promoting Lunatics to issue their own death warrants against anyone they believe to have committe blasphemy.

            What is wrong IS WRONG !!

            Now the Big Question for this Writer is this —
            WHAT DOES THE QUARN SAY ABOUT “FATWAT” ??

          • Onike24

            Bros, a fatwa is just a legal ruling on an issue by a religious scholar, who will often have looked at the provisions of the Quran or haddith on a pariticular issue. I take it you know that Sunnis and Shia Muslims differ on some practises, one of which is a fatwa. In Sunni Islam it is none binding and no more than an opinion but in Shia Islam it is binding. Now I and other Muslims do not believe that one person can make laws for others, in fact the Quran itself states in 6:114 ” shall I seek other than God as lawmaker, when he has revealed this book fully detailed”? Which in my opinion means use your head and stop depending on other people to tell you what God says. Remember that the Quran says that the Jews deviated from the path of righteousness when they added the Talmud to the Torah given by God. Hence men became the lawmakers, so why do some Muslims follow the same path by issuing binding fatwas? In some instances a fatwa may be helpful in following your conscience, a good example is the Ramadan fast, which in Europe will be over 20 hours long this summer. Infact in the Nordic countries it will be longer. Many scholars have debated whether fasting for 20 hours does not impose a hardship, which the Quran has explicitly stated is not what Allah wishes to impose on us when we fast. In such a case a fatwa may help a muslim decide whether they will endure the 20 hours or will follow the timing in Mecca. Personally, I believe that many Muslims are ignorant of the teachings of their faith, hence the need for a scholar to tell them what the Qu’ran says! Despite the fact that there is no priestly class in Islam.

          • Otile

            What are you talking about? How about marabouts, chief imams, imams plus a host of deceiving imams?

          • Gbola

            Cool.

            I believe that the fatwa issued for the killing of Charles Hedo was WRONG.

            And Even though the Fatwa was issued by a RELIGIOUS figure (I bieve from Iran), that was wrong.

            I also believe that to stone an Adulterous woman in the name of a Religion is wrong and can’t be of a merciful God — AS if the man is always right in a case of Adultery.

            You see @Onike, when a Religion (whichever Religion) promotes or advocates ANY form of violence against another Human, then it shouldn’t come as a surprise when people commit violence and attrocities in the name of that Religion.

            That’s just my take on this matter without pointing ANY finger at ANY Religion.

            As a matter of fact, I would list an instance where the Christian Religion was also used to commit violence.
            The KKK (the white Supremacist group) used to kill Blacks in the name of the bible.
            They used to falsely state that God wasn’t in favour of the mixing of blacks and whites. And as such they constantly promoted Segregation.

            They down themselves in a white Robe with the CROSS of Jesus inscribed on the front of the Robe.

            So we must all SPEAK UP AGAINST Violence in the name of Religion.

            Thanks for a wonderful discussion @Onike.

          • Onike24

            The fatwa was very wrong and cannot possibly be justified. How many times has that magazine mocked Christ? Infinite times! To Muslims there is no difference between the Messengers of God. So it was wrong. As for stoning adulterous women, it has no basis in the Qu’ran, none! I particularly abhor violence done in the name of God; is Allah so helpless that he needs man to fight his battles? absolute nonsense! Even the Prophet when he was alive was mocked, was attacked, camel dung was flung into his compound, Palm fibre( thorns) were left for him to thread on, but not once did he retaliate, so who are these people to fight for him?

          • Gbola

            Beautiful response.

            Greetings @Onike.

          • Gbola

            Sorry,
            I read over your reply again and I’ve got the answer to my question.
            And I believe what you’re saying is that :-

            A Fatwa is NOT in the Quran.
            It is ONLY in Hadiths.
            And a Fatwa ISN’T BINDING in the Sunni version of Islam.
            BUT it is binding in Shia Islam.

            Thanks for sharing this knowledge.

          • Onike24

            A fatwa can be based on Qu’ranic exegesis.

          • Abdulmojeed Nojeemdeen

            Fatwa in Islam means judgement passed just like the judge in the court of law sighting certain portion of the constitution. The explicitly stated that,obey God,obey the prophet and obey the authority in the land. Imaging those that carried out a jungle justice on a suspected criminal,do we blame it on a constitutional Judge who handed down that judgement,the answer is no. So,to blame the actions of some criminals on the faith they claim is most unfortunate. Will it be correct to blame Christianity or the Bible for the criminal act commited George w Bush when he lied to the whole world that Iraq had WMD and later declare his infamous crusade and thereby wasting the lives of innocents.criminality is criminality regardless of who comited it.

            So do you suggest that the Fatwa issued for the kllling of Charles Hedo is right according to the Quran.
            Also the one issued for the killing of Salmon Rushdie ??

            Laztly,
            According to the Quran which is meant to hAve been delivered to Mohammed by Angel Gabriel, Did Angel Gabriel state that a Fatwa must be issued for the kllling of anyone who insults Mohammed the messenger ??

            Just curious.
            I mean NO DISRESPECT.
            Just curious at what Allah says about the taking of another’s life through issuance of a Fatwa.

            Also,
            How does the Quran address the issue of Infidels OR Muslims who CONVERT to another Religion.
            Didn’t it prescibe death to these converts ??

            The stoning of an Adulterous woman, is that in the Hadith OR Quran.

            The reasons I bring all these up is because when a Religion TOLERATES violence against humanity, then it shouldn’t come as a surprise when people commit violence and attrocities in the name of that Religion.

            Thanks for your contribution.

          • Garba sani

            You guys should pls go back to school of Bible and learn all these facts b4 you disgrace yourself in public. It was in the bible that says people should be killed for leaving their religion and a woman to be killed if found not Virgin by her bride. Let me know if you care for references.

          • Gbola

            Did Jesus preach that OR are you merely listing one of the many sins that we are warned against in the Bible ??

            Please,
            This is a discussion WITHOUT any need for INSULTS.

            So please don’t ruin the flow.

            It was in the Bible where an Adulterous woman was to be stoned BUT Jesus admonished the crowd that had gathered by saying — LET HE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE.
            Believe it or not, NO ONE casted a single Stone that day.

            After the crowd had dispersed, Jesus then comforted the Adulterous woman to — GO AND SIN NO MORE (He fogave her sins ).

            So please don’t come here and twist or concoct passages from the Bible.

            Look at the discussion I’m having with @Onike.
            This is NOT a contest.
            This isn’t a Bible Vs Islam thing.
            And ONLY GOD can judge.

            Have a good evening.

          • wode

            What does the constitution of Nigeria say about a murderer? What does it say about thief/armed robbers? adulterer? to be set free, right? If not, does the prescribed punishment for the convicted be meted by jungle justice? What does Bible say about all these? Check Leviticus 20:10 for punishment for adultery; For murder, check Leviticus 24:17, Genesis 9:6, Exodus 21:12, etc; for stealing, check Exodus 21:16…
            So, which of them have more violence commandments?

            Most of you just talk out of shear ignorance, hatred or complete lost of mind. I pray for God’s guidance upon you. Peace!

          More nonsense: your version of the Recital goes from 33:57 and then goes straight to 33:61? With no verses Inbetween? Wonderful! This is then backed with a clearly fabricated haddith? My question to bigots is this: don’t you think the time you spend trying to discredit Islam could be spent doing something more productive? Your posts only appeal to bigots such as yourselves, you will not convince any balanced individual to start thinking like yourself, so why bother?

          • Pius

            Islam regards blasphemy against the Prophet a very heinous crime and the Quran strongly forbids blasphemy and makes 11 references to it: 2:88, 4:15, 5:17, 5:64, 5:68, 5:73, 6:19, 9:74, 11:19, 14:28, 39:8. They are all against it. At the conquest of Makkah, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (p.u.h.) announced general amnesty to all except those who were guilty of blasphemous acts and sacrilegious statements. Both Nasai and Sunan Abu Daud, famous Hadith books, narrate that a slave Jew woman was killed by her master for her repeated blasphemy against the Prophet and when the case was brought to the Prophet’s notice he declared no retaliation against the master. (Hadith No.4348)

            The death punishment assigned for blasphemy is agreed by all Islamic scholars of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah and, is normally covered in Kitabul Hudud in Islamic juridical texts. Because of the evidence for blasphemy punishment being based on Ahadith, certain reported incidents during the lifetime of the Prophet (p.u.h.) and unanimous agreement of all Islamic scholars in all the ages (Ijma), many Islamic countries of the world including Saudi Arabia have legislated death punishment for blasphemy. It is only Qadianis, a community regarded infidels by Muslims across the world, who support no-punishment for blasphemy. It is very surprising that Mr. Wahiduddin Khan, ignoring many clear Ahadith and Ijma (consensus of Islamic jurists) of Islamic scholars – the second and the third most important sources of Islam- claims that no punishment should be meted out to the offender of blasphemy. He stayed blind to Ahadith and Ijma upon which thousands of Islamic injunctions are based.

    People who want to share their religious views with you, almost never want you to
    share yours with them. I have got nothing against Allah……It’s his Fan Club
    I Can’t stand. I believe there is something out there watching over us.
    Unfortunately, it’s the government. If I were not an atheist, I would believe
    in a God who would choose to save people on the basis of the totality of
    their lives and not the pattern of their words.
    I think he would prefer an honest and righteous atheist to a TV preacher who’s
    every word is God, God, God, and whose every deed is foul, foul, foul. If
    the concept of God has any validity or any use, it can only be to make us
    larger, freer, and more loving. If God cannot do this, then it is time we got rid of Him.

    • Sir Louis

      I share your views absolutely.

  • Watch man

    Yes, this is an enlightening piece. Even Jesus Christ never sinned for once neither did He murder or encourage it. In fact He had the power to command 12 legions of angels to fight for Him shortly before His crucifixion but He chose not to. He even healed the man whose ear was cut by one of His disciples who was not happy at the injustice being meted on Him. Now, the issue is: is Nigeria an Islamic or Christian state? The answer is NO! It is a secular state where everyone is constitutionally enfranchised to practice whatever he/she believes. Let us assume that the woman blasphemed. Would it not have been better for her murderers to have followed the example of their prophet? If the murderers feel strongly about what the woman allegedly did, did the constitution empower them to murder her? Were they not supposed to have reported to police? You see, this whole thing boils down to the fact that these murderers are wickedly envious with a lot of hatred residing in their psyche against other prosperous citizens whose faith is different from theirs.

    • Lanre

      Hello Watch Man. We are here again where someone has to lecture us on what Islam says in 2016 about Blasphemy. Like I said yesterday this happens in Pakistan, Malaysia and Afghanistan. Which is what Northern Nigeria is. I know what the Igbos want. They will never allow this religious bigotry to pass. It is my Yoruba people that I am concerned about. Nigeria is a retrogressive entity going back into the middle ages where Barbarians kill you based on their religion.

      • ganiyu Aremu

        Thank you Lanre. Moslems are indeed taking us back into the 7th century. It is sad. The ‘religion of peace’ appellation does not stick and cannot stick as the evidence present globally by Islamic practitioners is at variance with peace mantra.

  • Major Agofure

    1. CHRISTIANA OLUWASESIN was lynched by secondary school students in Gombe in 2007, who accused her of desecrating the Qur’an. She was invigilating an exam. The kids carried expo. She snatched it from them. It was the Qur’an.
    2. GRACE USHANG was raped and murdered in 2009 in Maiduguri for wearing trousers – Khaki trousers that was issued to her by the Nigerian state for NYSC!
    3. GIDEON AKALUKA – beheaded in Kano in 1995 for desecrating the Qur’an.

    Gideon Akaluka, Grace Ushang, and Christianah Oluwasesin were all murdered in broad daylight. One, Grace Ushang, for wearing a uniform (NYSC) issued to her by her fatherland. [The response of the then Muslim President was to issue a decree and later a law bannig women from wearing trousers and introducing “Long Islamic Skirts” as new Uniform for female NYSC members]
    They all died before the advent of social media. The Nigerian state treated all three cases the Nigerian way: grudging condemnation, a few statements of regret here and there. No arrests.
    ——- Prof Pius Adesakin (USA)

    But Muhammadu Bokohari is not different from the killers of the 3 persons above and certainly the killers of the recent victim in Kano. His silence over the killings by terrorist Fulani herdsmen and the killing of civilian worshipers last week in a Church in Anambra and Delta states as they converged to mark Biafra day is testament to his love for bloodletting…his comments about the blood of Dogs & Baboons should not be forgotten.

    Kano Killing: What Islam says about blasphemy and killings

    Yawn! The topic is irrelevant to the brutal murder of Bridget Agbahime. As usual, one would hear the same old tired repeats of: “Islam is a peaceful religion blah blah blah! Or Islam forbids killing of…blah blah blah!

    Nigeria is not an Islamic country nor was the brutally murdered Bridget Agbahime a Muslim. Granted, how could Islamic interpretation of blasphemy possibly apply to her?

  • Manu Galadima

    Beautiful piecd?th?th support froform Qur’anic verses however, I keenly watch to read the kind of punishment to be meted out to any person who takes another patn’st n’s life in the name of Islam. To erase the notion from the minds of human beings that Islam is not violent, a sincere grassroots teaching/orientation needs to as a matter of urgency be embarked upon.

    Yes, forgiveness remains paramount however, it remains even more paramount we guard against unguarded speeches. Let us open up to quest for knowledge so that we can a meaningful and sincere exegesis of an utterance made by a non adherence to some sort of religious beliefs.

    The Laws of a country meant to be secular, should take the lead in determining an offence so as to punish/forgive accordingly.

    Who is this God? Who is this Allah please?

    The Prophets of the true God/ Allah were never blood suckers. God/ Allah is strong enough to fight for Himself.

    I appeal to all to have respecte for all.

She just wanted to commit suicide and used that means. Love for Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is overwhelming in the heart of believers and I tell everyone who cares to know that it is just not practical for anyone to insult the prophet and come out alive among Muslim population. Take it or leave it, but is the truth. You can blaspheme in non Muslim dominated area and get away with it but not otherwise.

      The love of our prophet shouldn’t lead us to mob action. Mob action is wrong. If there’s any wrong doing observed, it should be reported to the authorities and the courts will take care of it. Was it in the way of the Prophet and his companions to use mob action for any cause? If you have any doubts check how it is done in Saudi for instance. You’ll never find such there because its unacceptable.

      If anyone gets involved in a mob action and kills someone without understanding the situation, he/she should be ready for questioning before Allah.

      It goes to show how barbaric some followers of Islam are. As a Christian I know God is love and the teachings of Jesus was purely to love and that is why fools like u can justify such atrocious act because Christians would not go on a killing spree at the slightest provocation or in reprisal. We believe in God that he is able to defend his name since he has all the powers and he doesn’t need mortals to fight for him. Islam should embrace love and tolerance to be able to coexist with others.

      • Mustapha

        In this case Christians are more barbaric, how many scientists were tied to the stake by the church for saying the world was round,etc. How many Muslims are daily killed in the cattle markets of umahia, okigwe,etc just to rob them of their hard earned money. Is it the Christian way of embracing love for the woman to insult the prophet in her host community of Muslims? Emotions are universal no one is exception. A Muslim was killed last week in India for eating cow meat. Hindus are all over the world walking in and out of groceries in US, UK, Nigeria etc where cow meat is sold and devoured how does that affect their faith? Is about emotions. No Muslim can go into Onitsha Market and insult what Christianity holds in divinity just because he disrespects the religion and go free. Even Americans or Europeans that claim civilisation go about killing innocent Muslims because of one terrorist attack or the other far remote from the victims location. There is no one that is free from emotions therefore the truth of the matter is that she killed herself. What she did was bad and there is no any love in her as claimed by Christianity is express hatred and disrespect to her host community by provoking their emotions.

        • Rommel

          Your explanation means your brain is trapped in anachronism,as a matter of fact,Christian Europe had documented,studied and condemned all those acts you have referred to, even POPE JOHN PAUL II has had cause to apologize for the sins of the church which was borne out of ignorance and will to dominate when then church leaders discovered that their teachings were inconsistent with reality,something that Muslims are battling with today,but this is 2016,do you now see how far behind Islam is? until Muslims evolve as human beings,we will continue to have this problems,it is just inevitable,I had cause to listen to Dr Abdul lateef Adegbite when he was alive on the subject of Sharia when Sani Yerima was toying with that idea in multi religious country like Nigeria,the man made it clear that Christianity was able to have a separation between state,society a religion,that this allows Christians to view things independently without religious colorations but that in Islam,all was fused together making it difficult for Muslims to be free thinking beings like Christians.For me,that is the crux of the matter.If you read the old testament or Torah,it is filled with scenes of bloodletting,vengeance,killings almost like Koran,but today,people that follow the old testament do not go on killing sprees in the name of God as prescribed in the old books.Religion is a very emotive subject this I understand but if your religion is founded on Love,such will not occur because Jesus Christ of Nazareth gets insulted all the time but Christians do not go beheading anybody.Why is this?

        • debarim

          From your submission here, it is so evident you only appeal to emotions without engaging reason and that is why this animalistic behaviour may keep re-occuring among you guys. Even animals have emotions, but they lack the intellectual capacities to process the rationality of their actions like human beings. If you now categorise yourself as piece of emotions who just act based on instincts, it will not excuse you but helps us to understand why one should begin to pay attention to your thought pattern and the barbarism that you elicit when you refuse to engage reason in situation that such is required.

    • Oladele

      Shut up, or tell us what blasphemy she uttered? No one had said exactly what she said that was blasphemous, the only eye witness account by fellow moslems around her shop was that she told an Utazz performing ablution right in front of her shop to shift so a customer can come in and the worthless Utazz started chanting “Alahu Arkbar” which led to mob gathering and without asking what exactly happened despite the protestation of her fellow traders to the mob, they beat her to death. Is that a religion of peace? This writer is not aware of satanic verses so he is quoting Surahs and we all know you guys get this useless views from those satanic verses!

      Ascribing Love in whatever form to bloodthirsty demoted souls is the most outrageous and insanely attempt anyone had resorted to in his defence of this cowardly act. A mob of almajiris who had been rendered destitute by their own religious, social nd political institutions killing a defenceless woman is no act of bravery and does not amount to anything you guys should be proud of. Rather you should be ashamed of yourselves. You remember when they tried it against the army sometimes early this year, the casualties were on an unimaginable proportion. Killing a woman in whatever guise by faceless muslim youths is what should make you people ask what kind of religion your parents handed over to you. Your god needs to brace up to defend himself and not employ you guys to do the dirty job for him.

          Islam regards blasphemy against the Prophet a very heinous crime and the Quran strongly forbids blasphemy and makes 11 references to it: 2:88, 4:15, 5:17, 5:64, 5:68, 5:73, 6:19, 9:74, 11:19, 14:28, 39:8. They are all against it. At the conquest of Makkah, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (p.u.h.) announced general amnesty to all except those who were guilty of blasphemous acts and sacrilegious statements. Both Nasai and Sunan Abu Daud, famous Hadith books, narrate that a slave Jew woman was killed by her master for her repeated blasphemy against the Prophet and when the case was brought to the Prophet’s notice he declared no retaliation against the master. (Hadith No.4348)

          The death punishment assigned for blasphemy is agreed by all Islamic scholars of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah and, is normally covered in Kitabul Hudud in Islamic juridical texts. Because of the evidence for blasphemy punishment being based on Ahadith, certain reported incidents during the lifetime of the Prophet (p.u.h.) and unanimous agreement of all Islamic scholars in all the ages (Ijma), many Islamic countries of the world including Saudi Arabia have legislated death punishment for blasphemy. It is only Qadianis, a community regarded infidels by Muslims across the world, who support no-punishment for blasphemy. It is very surprising that Mr. Wahiduddin Khan, ignoring many clear Ahadith and Ijma (consensus of Islamic jurists) of Islamic scholars – the second and the third most important sources of Islam- claims that no punishment should be meted out to the offender of blasphemy. He stayed blind to Ahadith and Ijma upon which thousands of Islamic injunctions are based.

        • debarim

          The good thing about the Bible is that it is divided into two. The Old Testament and the New testaments. The Old Testament is only sensible when you read it in the light of the New. The Old Testament is like the shadow, the New Testament is that which brings light to it. Jesus often said… ‘ It is written… but I tell you. That is Jesus giving new meaning to what the people of Old lacked knowledge to understand. For instance, the Old Testament had 10 strict Laws, (decalogue) sometimes leaving to this barbaric acts. Jesus re-interpreted the 10 Laws and summarised them as ‘Love your God and Love your neighbour as yourself. I am very sorry that this is what Islam lacks. Applying the principle of over 1400 years within the context of contemporary time. ‘You can’t keep old wine in new skin’ as Jesus said. You will loose the wine as well as the skin.

          • amazing2012

            Please prove where Jesus Pbuh says:
            1. He summarizes the Ten Commandments as love.
            2. Confirm he is talking on all the laws because the stories you refers to are both in Luke and Mark refers to Fasting and not condemning or changing the fasting but explaining the circumstances why some you can’t fast when with people that are not fasting or vice versa. Unfortunately Christian call it a new law. Because any issue that will make Christians less faithful is regarded as “love” and New Testament.
            Please read it and relate to all laws:
            Luke 5: 33-39 And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise [the disciples] of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink? 34 And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? 35 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. 36 And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old. 37 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. 38 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved. 39 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, THE OLD IS BETTER.
            Mark 2:18-22 The Superiority of the New (Please what is superio here) ?
            18 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not? 19 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the BRIDECHAMBER FAST, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot FAST. 20 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they FAST in those days. 21 No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse. 22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.
            NOW RELATE WITH THESE:
            Matthew 5:17-19ESV “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. {Luke 18:18:21}18A certain ruler asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
            19“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 20You know the commandments: ‘You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother. 21“All these I have kept since I was a boy,” he said. PLEASE EXPLAIN !
            3. “Leaving this Barbaric act”: It is an insult to your God. Even if you are not in agreement with what God commanded or you look at it as out dated, the words you suppose to use should be soft respectful and humble words. Hence what you are pointing is directly found in your scripture.
            “And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. -Revelation 13:6
            What you are saying now is that there are records of barbarism in your book, recorded by barbaric God, to barbaric people but later change by Jesus Pbuh (changing the word of God ?) and this is what Jesus Pbuh says:
            Matthew 5:17-19ESV “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. {Luke 18: 21“All these I have kept since I was a boy,” he said.
            UNDERSTAND ME:
            I do not support the death of any innocent soul for any reason by any body ! Nor do I support killing of this innocent woman just as I do not support the burning alive of thieves who stole bread on the street of the other part of the country.
            The problem is that, Christians are good in outrage and barking and in the process the lost the essence of Justice, and measures to prevent the occupancy of such heinous crime to mankind.
            For instance: who among Muslims will come to back measures and collectively protest for justice on this innocent soul ? When every body is blame among the Muslims ? You insulted them, their God, their book etc blah blah blah !
            Christians use every opportunity to condenm Muslims as a way to promote their faith.
            Themis crime committed is against humanity not against “religion” or ethnicity. Every body suppose to be involve in seeking for justice and to ensure prevention of any of this crime.
            But gradually, the case was made and a line draw between ethnic and religious line. The essence of justice is betrayed and breach !
            It is OUR collective responsibility to ensure justice not on ethnic or religious sentiment.

    How long has Mohammed died now? Will 500-1000 years range be a good guess or more? As human beings, why should people still be concerned what someone think or said of these men; Mohammed or Jesus or Buddha or any other religious head to the extend of taking a life? Will any reasonable person kill someone that cursed out his grandfather or great grandfather that they hardly know? These foreign religions that the citizens adopted wrongly has done more killings in this country than all the diseases and the civil war put together. The end is not insight yet on religion related death as we still have majority of Nigerians with less education to read and understand what the writing in the so-called religious books are all about. Education is still the best way to eradicate ignorance on the basis of religion. These killers will pay for the crime committed as expressing an opinion about any religious heads should not be an excuse to be barbaric.

One day you will beg to leave that religion cos your brothers you call extremists will teach you the lesson of your lives. Just an advice!!!!!!!

  • NazirJos

    Of course for that woman to insult Prophet Muhammad is suicidal, but for the mob to take law into their hand is something of serious ramification. Our govt. should be proactive in sensitive matters such as this one. The law should spell out the punishment of such blasphemy and also of unjustifiable killing when someone insults your religion. The public should be well orientated on the law, and perpetrators should be convicted so as to serve as lesson to others.

      which prophet? a terorrist?
      No Christian defend Jesus Christ. If i lie, ask Aregbesola how Jesus CHRIST dealt with him, when at the promptings of some Arabian sheiks, he decided to make Osun State an Islamic state with promises of effective funding.
      He has been reduced to a nonentity in Nigeria and the Arabians too do not have PetroDollar to finance him.
      God in Christ is omniscient and rule in the affairs of men.
      He crippled the source and turn the wisdom of a common man to foolishness.

        common why will any christen defend Jesus Christ? first of all the Jesus you pretend to worship its not real, you just follow blindly and believe the greed some people input in the bible to lead you to hell where you all belong. so why defend what you have no good fact to back. that’s you Hell dwellers position today. i rest my case .

          Listen to me. The Romans who rues when Jesus Christ was around acknowledged that.

Infact Mohammed was a fraud like the Jesus of Oyingbo and all others.

            so you mean their was two Jesus, fraud oyingbo Jesus and a real Jesus, thanks for confirming what i said; my question to you now is which Jesus are the christen of the day following and how will they differentiate the fraud oyingbo Jesus to the real Jesus ?

How will Jesus Christ not be real when your prophet acknowledged Jesus. You need not rest any case because you have none of you don’t know that Islam teaches that Christ will come again. The Quran is an adulterate version of the Christian bible. You may need to study it to understand. You are using a monicker ‘peacebeuponyou’ and you are claiming someone will go to hell.

Also did i here you said the Qur’an is an adulterated version of the Bible, then who adulterated it and make it more perfect and also make sure it can stand the test of time? you are just naive in your post, simple advice if you want to say anything about Islam or Qur’an, pls make your research like we research your bible and bring the challenge to us. thanks

Government has no business interpreting religious tenets. It is either you know your religion or not. You do not expect government to codify Sharia law for Muslims. Islam does.

      • blueeyedkitten

        everything you said was true, except that nonsense you said – islam is devils religion. just because you dont understand something, doesnt make it evil. islam is not established to romance your whimps and caprices. islam is not here to submit to your codes of conduct or that of anybody. if you care to know(honestly, i dont give a damn what you think here), the punishment of blasphemy is to be carried out by ONLY the constituted authorities. nobody has the right to take laws into their hands. you guys should know, islam will not change its doctrines because of some neo-critical society butterflies, who like to claim moral monopoly.(mere mortals for that matter).

        • debarim

          The greatest gift God gives to man is the gift of life and freedom of will is its essential and inalienable character. That is what makes man to be man and not some robots and it is what sets him above every other creature. It is also a fundamental condition in determining sin or otherwise. This is th gift that Islam wages war against. The gift of the human freedom and subsequently man himself. This explains the reign of terror in such muslim dominated countries like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan. Iran. etc. It also explains why the dignity of man has no universal value in such nations where a woman or a child is regarded more or less a property of the males who dominates such religious/political structure. Religion in such a space is not a means of getting to God but is the major instrument through which the brutish nature of man is displayed when he arrogates the place of God to himself. That is the danger you guys represents to the modern society. What you guys are advocating is a total domination of those who do not think like you. The world will forcefully resist this and that is what will bring and end to this crave for blood which at present define your extreme mode of worship.

          • blueeyedkitten

            shut your dirty mouth! you dont know an ounce about islam apart from the prejudices displayed by the media. unfortunately, people like you dont have the capacity of independent thinking, as you only follow the bandwagon. that is why its very difficult to explain simple logic to you guys no matter how one tries. after all, you’ve already made up your minds on anything that has to do with islam and muslims; and in this type of scenario, there is nothing anybody can do about that.
            if islam is that bad and gloom as you painted it(never mind the gross one-brush paintings all over your comments), why do we have people in their thousands embracing the religion all the time? its the most fastest growing religion in the world today. surely there is something precious about this religion, isnt it. by the way, this arent my claims. you can check it up if you like.
            however, there is nothing i can do about your hatred,bigotry and cynicisms about islam and muslims. if you had shown even the slightest sign of wanting to understand why this religion is all about “craving for blood” and its “extreme mode of worship”(though in your warped reasoning), i would have helped. but you’ve already made up your mind. so you can continue with your gross misrepresentation of facts/events. i dont care.

          • debarim

            The only help you can render is to help yourself to be reasonable. The brute and cruel character that you can associate with religion today is only traceable to your religion. This is not an issue to explore in goole or wikipedia. Empirical data shows that In the name of religion, Boko Haram kills and maims in the north of Nigeria. ISIS is the most terrible and outrageous religious group the world as known, dwarfing even the horrific records of Alqaeda. In Bangladesh, Iran, Syria, Pakistan, Somalia, Kenya, Mali, Sadi Arabia, these are few of the places in the world where in the name of your religion, human lives are considered cheaper than those of animals. Who are you to teach me and what do you want to teach when you so lack basic intelligence to make deductions from events around the world. We see them on TV and hear them on the radio and read them as they happen. You claim Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world when freedom of religion and conversion is considered a mortal sin punishable by death in places where you guys are in the majority. It is unfortunate to realise you guys can’t decipher that faith without freedom is the greatest deception that you can invent. When you constrain people to hold on to what you force down their throats and you call that ‘faith’. I beg you guys need to call yourselves to gather and ask if it actually makes any sense. What I’m forced to believe doesn’t require faith since i’m left without option if I can’t fight for myself which is often the case here.

          • blueeyedkitten

            like i have said you’ve made up your mind. you cannot reason properly because of too much emotion.
            you want to associate islam with violence? you gotta be kidding. the first and second world wars alone claimed about 10million lives. can you trace islam in that unprecedented and monumental destructions of life and property? what about the pedophilia happening at the vatican? the pol pots? pinochets? stalin? mao zedongs? you want to be educated about these people’s crime against humanity? yet you ignore all this atrocities and instead attribute muslims to almost every crime committed in this world? i’m typing so fast as i dont have your time now. its time for iftar.

          • debarim

            It would have been better to ignore your likes but looking at your hypocrisy and dearth of knowledge on international politics and events show why many of you guys are just too dangerous for your lack of understanding. You just exposed your ignorance on the fact that those who waged the world wars Hitler and Stalin for instance were atheists who subjected the Christian faith to persecution. It is also unbelievable you don’t know that nations like France are fundamentally secularist where even Christian are being persecuted to day. What you said about Vatican could be true and is considered an aberration. people are being punished for it and being forced to resign their position. Whereas it is a fundamental part of your own religion. Mohammed did it by defiling a 6 year old baby. He passed it on to you people. Examples abound just here in Nigeria where Yerima; a former governor of Zamfara even bought a girl from Egypt and your political leaders in NASS even justified it by passing a law to back him up. The case of the little girl from Bayelsa is still in the public space and the role your religious leaders played in this criminal activity is known to all reasonable Nigerians. I’m not surprised by your ranting because even your ignorant professor from Unilag defended this dastardly act. I’m even surprised you didn’t mention Sanusi Lamido who just got married to a girl younger than many of his children, not to talk of your emirs and your Arabian sheiks who pick these babies while their mothers cannot protest except they are ready to pay with their lives. You need to update yourself boy.

          • blueeyedkitten

            my discuss is not about islam and christianity. you’re indeed a confirmed straw man in this context. you keep advancing arguments i never brought forward. by the way, if you look at all my posts, i never said anything bad about christianity. infact, most muslims dont attack christianity here on this forum. some do, but just in response to some irresponsible comment on muslims and islam. we rearly start any conversation/comments with insulting other people’s religion. i also didnt say hitler and co were christians(eventhough there are ample evidence he got his inspiration from his childhood religion – christianity). i was only trying to tell you – there’re worst crimes committed, and still been committed in the world today than from your so called evil muslims, yet you turn a blind eye to them simply because of the hatred you have for muslims.
            however, if you want we can start digging the atrocities commited by the church, which will dwarf any atrocity committed by muslims in history. but i’m wise enough not to attribute most of the massacres committed in the name of the church to christianity. because i know christianity is entirely different from the behaviours of christians.
            as for your other allegations( yerima, lamido, ese and co), they’re all full of half-truth and ouright falsehood. i dont want to dwell on that, as you already started your arguments with bias. i dont what to waste my time on that.
            finally, you can die with your skewed opinion on muslims and islam. i dont care, to be honest.

  • Sir Louis

    There is no justification for ordinary citizens to carry out death sentence on a fellow citizen outside the law in the name of any religion, no matter what. The killing in Kano of an innocent woman for blasphemy in the words and understanding of a mob that is mainly illiterate is an abomination and insult to common sense. These people who value their imported religion more than the life of their fellow citizens and neighbours are making it difficult and undesirable for Nigerians to continue to live together in one country! The government should ensure that the perpetrators are tried for murder and publicly executed as a deterrent to others and reasonable compensation paid to the family of the unfortunate woman, to somewhat assuage their grief. If the above is not done, horrendous violence of this nature will gradually lead to the ruin of the nation.

        MB, Wonder is a wonderful liar. I am a christian and I have checked some of those verses he quoted. We all need to understand that religious intolerance doesn’t do anyone any good. Let us use our diversity to our advantage. But I also think that muslim religious leaders have a lot of work to do. There is stark ignorance in some quarters. Your leaders need to voice out their condemnation of violence relentlessly.

  • Good write-up. However, the writer failed to discuss the issue in the light of abrogation of verses in Islam as we all know that Islam has support for both extremes of mercy and retaliation respectively. We at once recognize which method to apply by taking into account, not just context (as the writer rightly pointed out) but also which is still in effect and which is abrogated.
    Extremist scholarship is aware of the peaceful and forgiving examples cited by the writer, they only recognize the fact that an application of the rules of abrogation nullifies most of these verses and Sunna cited by the writer.

  • Good write-up.

    So, in my opinion, people are not misunderstanding Islam, neither are extremists misrepresenting Islam. Muslims are nice people no doubt, but they have to accept that their religion has its own share of responsibility for what extremists do.

    There is no point labelling Islam as a religion of violence. You should not emotional they way the mobs did either you are a Muslim or a Christian. What the mobs did was wrong in the sense that they took law into their own hands because I doubt if it were in Enugu they won’t dare it. So why doing it because it was in your land mixed with other people of different believe. I had an experience of recent, I travelling to ILORIN. On getting at my bus stop I had when they are starting Friday prayer. I had to hurry up to meet the prayer. Close to the mosque I took most people there to be Muslims. I hurriedly buy the pure water that I will use to perform ablution and I shift to one side. But guess what , the woman being not a Muslim shouted at me to move to a near gutter that was smelling bad. I look at her, seeing hatred from her of what I was about doing despite being her costumer. It was after doing what she recommended that she explained that the water might drain to her neighbor’s shop and she doesn’t like. I had to endure her hatred to avoid quarrelling which I don’t even have time for, and I know that most people their are Muslims which I may have their support because of the way she handled the situation. Had it been I did not control my emotions we would have created a scene, I may end up missing the prayer I was rushing for. But we don’t actually know what happened in Kano , but Allah knows and we pray that justice should be done

    • DrOye

      That woman represents what humanity and sanity should be about. She didn’t only think of herself, she didn’t want you to use your self-serving act to mess up her neighbor’s space. So, you wanted to disturb someone easier because you had to pray to dead god. You guy’s are ridiculous!

    Praise
    be to Allaah.

    Defaming the Prophet
    (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is a kind of kufr. If that is done
    by a Muslim then it is apostasy on his part, and the authorities have to
    defend the cause of Allaah and His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be
    upon him) by executing the one who defamed him. If the one who defamed him
    repents openly and is sincere, that will benefit him before Allaah, although
    his repentance does not waive the punishment for defaming the Prophet (peace
    and blessings of Allaah be upon him), which is execution.

    If the person
    who defames him is a non-Muslim living under a treaty with the Muslim state,
    then this is a violation of the treaty and he must be executed, but that should
    be left to the authorities. If a Muslim hears a Christian or anyone
    else defaming the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) he has to
    denounce him in strong terms. It is permissible to insult that person because
    he is the one who started it. How can we not stand up the Prophet (peace and
    blessings of Allaah be upon him)? It is also obligatory to report him to the
    authorities who can carry out the punishment on him. If there is no one who can
    carry out the hadd punishment of Allaah and stand up for the Messenger (peace
    and blessings of Allaah be upon him) then the Muslim has to do whatever he can,
    so long as that will not lead to further mischief and harm against other
    people. But if a Muslim hears a kaafir defaming the Prophet (peace and
    blessings of Allaah be upon him) and he keeps quiet and does not respond for fear
    that this person may then defame him even more, this is mistaken thinking. With
    regard to the verse (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And insult not
    those whom they (disbelievers) worship besides Allaah, lest they insult Allaah
    wrongfully without knowledge”

    [al-An’aam
    6:108],

    this does not
    apply in cases where they defame Allaah and His Messenger (peace and blessings
    of Allaah be upon him) first. Rather what is meant is that it is forbidden to
    insult the gods of the mushrikeen first, lest they insult Allaah out of
    ignorance and enmity on their part. But if they insult Allaah and His Messenger
    (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) first, then we must respond and
    punish them so as deter them from their kufr and enmity. If we leave the
    kuffaar and atheists to say whatever they want without denouncing it or
    punishing them, great mischief will result, which is something that these
    kuffaar love. No attention should be paid to the one who says that insulting or
    responding to insults will make him more stubborn. The Muslim has to have a
    sense of protective jealousy and get angry for the sake of Allaah and His
    Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Whoever hears the
    Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) being insulted and does not
    feel any protective jealousy or get angry is not a true believer – we seek
    refuge with Allaah from humility, kufr and obeying the Shaytaan.

    And Allaah knows
    best.

        you’re just simply dumb. remove your chidish emotions and read again.
        you’d realised how sheepish you sound. if you cannot offer a superior
        argument other than hate, then get the h*ll out here

          It is better to have a child-like attitude than to be incarnated by the messenger of death.

          • blueeyedkitten

            rubbish!!

          • debarim

            bravo

    • debarim

      This kind of god does not deserve to be worshipped, rather he deserves to be disdained. While it is already insane to defend taking a human soul because he offended your god, your position that even repentance does not mitigate your urge to see another man’s blood being shed shows your god also needs conversion from being blood thirsty and turn to the GOD who gave all in order to redeem man. Your type without any apology makes the world a hell to live in. You need not follow a weak god that cannot defend himself but will require you to be hypnotised and think yourself of defending him. What a shame that your hypocrisy smacks you in the face when you promote the course of a god who delights in seeing blood and at the same time you are calling ‘peace’. The two don’t go together. By their fruit, we shall know them. The one who kills by the sword, will die by the sword’.

      • Musa Maiturare

        Is ours God take it or leave it be it Muslim or what so ever yhu choose to be he’s the creator of all including yhu, something yhu don’t know we all gonna account for our actions in the day of judgment.@debarim
        I rest my case.

        • debarim

          I don’t think we serve the same God really. I know the Almighty God created heaven and earth. But this God who I profess do not permit me to kill. If the one you profess command you to kill, then it means we have two different Gods as the case may be. Because the God I profess does not contradict Himself. He is Love and as such, I cannot identify Him with the one @blueeyedkitten claims to be his god. No insult intended, just saying the truth as it is.

          • omo56

            Yes, Christians and Muslims do not serve the same God. Muslims do not believe in the “Trinity”
            It obvious that the Prophet Muhamed did not learn nor hear about what Jesus Christ said and do when a woman who committed adultery was brought before Him, these leaders expected Christ to follow the law of Moses. Christ instead said, “Asked who is without sin to cast the first stone”
            Islam allows for people with sins to ignore theirs and kill other sinners

      • blueeyedkitten

        if this is all you took from my post, then i’d question your comprehension capacity. you keep ranting about fighting for God or acting as a defendant for God, because criminals are punished as per the divine laws. so in your world of reasoning, every crime a man committs, he shouldnt be punished for it, but instead left alone for God to judge, because we’re all sinners anyway. in that case, whats the point of having courts, lawyers and judges in this world? all should be dismantled and we leave everything until judgement day right? wow! this type of reasoning is unforgivable.

        • debarim

          You are most depraved by this response. Who is a criminal here? A defenceless woman whose life was cut short by a bunch of miscreants who had been brainwashed to think they are the defenders of a weakling you refer to as god; or the demons who do not value other peoples’ lives because they attach no importance to theirs since they have been mentally and physically impoverished by the feudal system you promote all in the name of religious law? Mention any ‘big man’ by conventional measure who had been a victim of this your eldorado called sharia? We are just waiting for the law of the land to take its course, then you will know which is supreme in a secular state like Nigeria between your archaic precepts and the civil law which respects first and foremost the law of freedom that you guys cannot guarantee any sane individual.

          • blueeyedkitten

            straw man, straw man, straw man. i cant believe this level of fallacy.
            when did i support the killing of anybody here? what tha f–k are you
            reading?

          • genwaeze1

            Your Allah must be a demon and your prophet a pervert. Must you fight for them? Must you take a life you did not create to defend a god or prophet? A man who was most merciless in killing raping and destroying whole population to propagate a false message

          • blueeyedkitten

            dont comment on what you have no knowledge about. just shut up now.

          • genwaeze1

            I probably know more about the evils of Islam than you do. Distorted hallucinations of a man under stupor. Twisting biblical stories to suit his political ambition

          • blueeyedkitten

            TWISTING WHAT? YOU HIGH?

    • Maverick

      M0hammed, punishment be upon him (PBUH) is the reason the world is on turmoil.

      Show me one thing m0hammed brought that was new; there you see things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by sword the faith he preached.

      • blueeyedkitten

        duh

    • Maverick

      That is why your aIIah is not almighty otherwise he will be the one to defend mortals rather than the other way round.

  • DrOye

    Any being you have to defend cannot be a SUPREME. You lots are blind and brainwashed!

  • omo56

    “It is forbidden to establish a legal punishment unless it is done by the leader or his deputy.” (See Al-Furu’ 6/53

    Allah said:

    “Show forgiveness, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the ignorant.” (Surah Al-A’raf

    It is very interesting that the leader of Sudan based his decision to kill African Christians in the then Sudan on these verses in the Koran
    The Prim minister of Sudan claimed to have been given to establish legal punishment for non belivers and another verse from the Koran to kill millions of African Christians
    “enjoin what is good” . He stated that the Koran gives power to kill by enjoining what is good and forbade what is bad. Not being a Muslim is bad, hence Muslim can kill a non beliver

    blueeyedkitten “How can we not stand up the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)?”

    It is a pity that you rubbished the excellent interpretation given by the learned Imams. Nevertheless, note the following:

    “… it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” Hebrews 9:27

    Everyone will be judged according to what he or she has done before dying. Those who have robbed caravans, raped children, murdered innocent people, razed towns and villages and nations will be judged accordingly. It is a waste of effort in religious rituals and hypocrisy to say “(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) No matter how many millions of times you pronounce peace upon them it will not change their situation.
