Praying Against the Cartoonist? Shaykh Habib ‘Ali’s Answer

From: I Love Prophet Muhammad Blog

Question:  Are we allowed to pray against the cartoonist who drew the pictures attacking the dignity of the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and give him peace)?

Answer:   From the rights upon the Muslim is that he pray against he who harms the Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace).  This is unto those who harm him and not unto the entire group of peoples of the West as there are people in the West whom are Muslims, and also people in the West who do not agree with this harming of the Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace).  Yet let me give you something better.  Something which is better in the eyes of the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and give him peace) – because as he said while the blood was dripping from him in the Battle of Uhud:

O God guide my people for indeed they do not know.

And we say on this very day “O God guide them for indeed they do not know.”

Habib `Ali Jifri on Feb. 17th 2006 “al-Mizan” on IQRA Television.
