The General Iftaa` Department Condemns the Insulting Cartoons about the Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)

 

Praise be to the Lord of all worlds. Prayers and peace be upon our Prophet, Mohammad, his family and his companions.

Allah the Almighty has sent His Prophets who are the best of His creatures, the most beloved to Him and the most honored in his sight as guidance and mercy to all of humanity. We, Muslims, make no distinction between any of Allah's Messengers (PBUT). The evidence on this is that Almighty Allah Says (What means): "The Apostle believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in God, His angels, His books, and His apostles. "We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His apostles." And they say: "We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys." [Al-Baqarah/285]. 

Those who have insulted the Prophet (PBUH) didn`t know him that well. This is because they weren`t acquainted with his blessed Sirah (Biography), which calls for tolerance, fraternity, knowing each other and harmony. Allah Says (What means): "O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of God is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)." [Al-Hujurat/13]. Had they reviewed his life and noble character, they would have realized that he is a good role model from all perspectives, and, thus would have respected this great Prophet (PBUH). How not! While Allah Said about him (What means): "And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character." [Al-Qalam/4]. 

The General Iftaa` Department confirms that the continuation of such insulting acts proves genuine intention to incite hatred and sedition in the whole world. Thus, violence, terrorism and insults should be abstained from and stood up against with determination since they only lead to intensifying hatred amongst nations. It is the duty of every Muslim to defend the Prophet (PBUH) through embracing his moral, which was the Quran, shedding light on his luminous image and fighting back suspicious matters directed against his life and figure.

Allah's Way [always] prevails, but most people do not know.

Is it permissible for a teacher to have one of the school meals originally allocated to students considering that there is plenty of them and they may spoil?

All perfect praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds. May His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.
The Ministry of Education has the final say in this regard because it isn`t allowed to take from public funds save with the permission of the body in charge of spending from it. In fact, we have sent a letter to the Ministry concerning this issue and we are waiting for an answer. However, to prevent spoilage of the meals, they can be sold and the price kept in favor of the students or distributed amongst the students themselves. And Allah The Almighty Knows Best.
