Gulf TV guest shows how to respond to mockery of Islam



A guest from the Gulf on the Lebanese pan-Arab TV channel MBC discussed how Muslims should react to mockery of Islam or the Prophet Muhammad, using a verse from the Quran itself. Watch the clip below.

The verse he quotes is from Surat An-Nisaa, 140, which in full is:


وَقَدْ نَزَّلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الْكِتَابِ أَنْ إِذَا سَمِعْتُمْ آيَاتِ اللَّهِ يُكْفَرُ بِهَا وَيُسْتَهْزَأُ بِهَا فَلَا تَقْعُدُوا مَعَهُمْ حَتَّىٰ يَخُوضُوا فِي حَدِيثٍ غَيْرِهِ ۚ إِنَّكُمْ إِذًا مِّثْلُهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ جَامِعُ الْمُنَافِقِينَ وَالْكَافِرِينَ فِي جَهَنَّمَ جَمِيعًا 
"And it has already come down to you in the Book that when you hear the verses of Allah [recited], they are denied [by them] and ridiculed; so do not sit with them until they enter into another conversation. Indeed, you would then be like them. Indeed Allah will gather the hypocrites and disbelievers in Hell all together -"
Whilst the last sentence is not so easy to process, the first part is good advice to head following the Charlie Hebdo incident, and an argument using the Quran that hasn't been used much.
