Danish Cartoons

Qur’aanic Verse 16.126:



126. Wa-in AAaqabtum faAAaqiboo bimithli ma AAooqibtum bihi wala-in sabartum lahuwa khayrun lilssabireena


126. And if you retaliate, then retaliate with the like of that with which you were afflicted. But if you are patient, it will certainly be better for those who are patient.29


Study Note:

29. Some time back, there was that case about Danish cartoons. Some Danish newspaper had published derogatory cartoons about our Prophet (peace upon him). In pursuance of the divine directive in this Verse, the only thing the Muslims could do in retaliation was to publish an equally derogatory cartoon about Prophet Jesus (peace upon him) in one of the newspapers controlled by them. But could the Muslims do it? No, never! Because, for the Muslims Prophet Jesus is as honourable as Prophet Muhammad. The best response for the Muslims then would have been to be patient, in accordance with the divine directive in this Verse, and try and publish an article in the same Danish paper eulogizing Prophet Jesus. But the Muslims did not then follow divine directive. They called for death to the persons concerned in the publication of the said Danish cartoons and for boycott of all Danish goods. How would Allah help the Muslims if they won’t follow His advice?


The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil III, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil I & Mabzil II of the series are already published.

  1. Salaam
    We are too busy following Mullahs and collecting hadith to remember one single book… The Qur’an you say? Sounds worth reading!

    • What is wrong in following mullah ? do you follow your dentist for the matters or religion or is it your grocer ?? no probably it is your nafs, that you follow.. right ?

      and who is “collecting” hadith ?
      all the ahadith have already been collected centuries earlier,. and no one is collecting them now..

      why are you spiteful sir? what is the matter?

  2. well taken. Jazak ALLAH.

    • No we should not degrade any prophet of Islam. But best retaliation is to give them the true picture of Islam . They are doing this because of their ignorance.
      We are not ignorant of Prophet Jesus PBUH???
