  • CHAPTER No: 48

    Who makes fun of anything where mention is made of

    Allah or the Qur'an or the Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) Commits disbelief

    Allah the Most Exalted said:

     

    “If you ask them (about this), they declare: 'We were only talking idly and joking.' Say: 'Was it at Allah (May Allah be pleased with him) and His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and His Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) that you were mocking? ' "

    (9:65)

     

    Ibn Umar, Muhammad bin Ka'b, Zaid bin Aslam and Qatadah ((May Allah be pleased with him)) narrated the following Hadith:

     

    In the course of the campaign of battle Tabuk, a man carne up one day and declared: "We have seen no people with greater appetite, more lying, more cowardly in battle than those people," he meant Allah's Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) and his Companions. Awf bin Malik rose and said, "In fact, you are the liar and a hypocrite (Mundfiq) and I will inform Allah's Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) about your words." So he went to Allah's Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) but by then he (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) was already informed through a revelation. Meanwhile, the hypocrite also approached Allah's Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) when he (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) started journey and was already on his camel. He pleaded: "O Messenger of Allah! we were only joking and trying to pass the time while traveling." Ibn Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) said, "As if I see him that he was clinging to the saddle belt of the Messenger of Allah's camel as it ran and his legs were being battered by the rough ground and even then he continued pleading (i.e. we were only joking)." Allah's Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said, "Was it at Allah (May Allah be pleased with him) and His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and His Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) that you were mocking? Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after you had believed". (9:65,66) Neither he (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) looked towards him nor spoke anything further.

     

    Important issues of the Chapter

     

    1) It is such a terrible thing that whoever makes fun in these matters is a disbeliever (Kafir).

    2) The explanation given of the verse 9:65, applied to those who commit such an act, whoever they may be.

    3) There is a difference between backbiting and admonition, and loyalty to Allah and His Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him)

    4) The difference between forgiveness which Allah loves and severity in dealing with the enemies of Allah.

          5) Some excuses are unacceptable.
