Kakanda, went further drawing attention and not giving supposed support to the murder of the student, he said:

Br. Hamid Al-Hassan Hamid posted:

With regards to insulting the Prophet of Islam, there are two categories:

  1. A Muslim insulting the Prophet
  2. A non-Muslim insulting the Prophet.

As for the first category, there is a unanimous consensus that the Muslim who insults the Prophet will be charged with treason, This is the stance of the Maliki, Shafi’ee, and Hambali schools, and executed.

Treason in the Islamic context includes one removing himself from the fold of Islam.

A prominent jurist from the Hambali school of thought presented a Fatwa that such a Muslim will be put under scrutiny and investigation to be sure that the insult from him towards the Prophet was based on his intention and not a mistake or emotional outburst if that can be established, then the law will take its way upon him, else it will not.

The name of this jurist is Abu Ya’la Al-Hambali. On this, there are differences of opinion from the Hanafi school of thought that such a person will not be executed but punished by flogging.
With regards to the second category, which is the non-Muslim insulting the Prophet.

There exists a difference of opinion based on 3 issues:

1. Type of punishment
2. Request the non-Muslim to plead forgiveness, or in other words, apologize
3. Termination of the contract of protection such non-Muslim enjoy under the Islamic state.

With regards to issue number 1, which is the type of punishment, some jurists say that the punishment will be the same as that of a Muslim, which is execution.

This is the opinion of Malik, Ahmad Bin Hambal, and Shafiee. Another issue here is if this transgression is the transgression of Allah’s boundary or that of the Prophet’s boundary because non-Muslims are not punished for the transgression of Allah’s boundaries under Islamic law.

The second opinion is that the non-Muslim will not be executed like the Muslim, but will be punished in other ways, by fines and what the court sees appropriate. This is the opinion of Abu Haneefa.

The argument of Abu Haneefa is that the non-Muslim already does things that are far more grievous than insulting the prophet like ascribing partners to Allah, faith in the trinity, ascribing sons to Allah, and so forth, and still, they are under the protection of the state.

This argument was so strong that even prominent jurists from the Hambali as well as the Shafi’ee school reviewed their original stance and remove execution from the case of the non-Muslim that insults the prophet.

This is why issues like this are very important to discuss. This makes you appreciate Islamic Law’s honesty, as well as an understanding of human nature and differences.

Finally, I think state governments in the north should do more in making sure that northern jurists be taken seriously, just as they should be charged with taking their jobs seriously. I feel like the emirates should be given more importance and certain powers beyond what they currently have, and engage more.

Muslim fathers and mothers should take their jobs as default educators of the religion seriously, especially in the fields of Hadeeth, Fiqh, and Usool. Lack of understanding of the basics of these sciences is part of the reasons why we have lots of problems today.

Allah knows best, He concluded!
