Muhammad صل الله عليه و سلم Made Fun of in Danish Newspaper Drawings

Source: Associated Press - ABDULLAH AL-SHIHRI

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia Jan 26, 2006 ? Saudi Arabia recalled its ambassador to Denmark Thursday to protest a published series of caricatures of the prophet Muhammad, which provoked a wave of anger in Islamic countries when they were published last year in a leading Danish newspaper.

Ambassador Mohammad Ibrahim Al-Hejailan has been posted in Denmark since March 2003. Embassy officials did not answer phone calls Thursday afternoon.

The 12 drawings published Sept. 30, 2005 by the Danish paper Jyllands-Posten included one showing Muhammad wearing a turban shaped as a bomb with a burning fuse. Another portrayed him with a bushy gray beard and holding a sword, his eyes covered by a black rectangle. A third pictured a middle-aged prophet standing in the desert with a walking stick in front of a donkey and a sunset.

Islamic tradition bars any depiction of the prophet, even respectful ones, out of concern that such images could lead to idolatry.

The anger over the drawings was evident throughout the Saudi capital on Thursday. Outside malls in downtown Riyadh, huge signs read: "Dear brothers, you should hold out purchasing any Danish food stuff because the Danes desecrated our prophet."

A flurry of text messages were sent via mobile phones, urging a boycott of Danish goods, such as cheese and cosmetics.

"We call on the merchant brothers to stop importing all Danish products for the sake of our beloved prophet," read one message.

A convoy of young men drove down one street with white cloth banners streaming from their windows.

"We demand all the brothers stop buying Danish products!" one read. "Remove all Danish products from your markets," another urged.

The Norwegian evangelical Christian newspaper Magazinet reprinted the pictures on Jan. 10, saying it was defending free expression from such threats.

As a result, Norway instructed its embassies in the Middle East to distance themselves from the controversial drawings.

In a letter from the Norwegian Foreign Ministry, published in the daily newspaper Aftenposten Thursday, the embassies are instructed to say the publication of the drawings has caused "distrust and unnecessary conflicts" between Muslims and the Scandinavian country.

The letter also quotes Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere as saying that "I am sorry that the publications of the Prophet Muhammad in the Magazinet has caused unrest in the Muslim community."

"I have great understanding that it offends Muslims all over the world," Stoere said, according to Aftenposten.

Some bloggers on Saudi Web sites were asking Saudis Thursday to boycott anything carrying the label, "Made in Denmark."

In a live television interview on the DR1 channel, Danish Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller said he had asked the Danish ambassador to Saudi Arabia to get an official explanation for Riyadh's decision to recall its ambassador. He said the government could not interfere with the newspaper, which has refused to apologize for publishing the drawings as a matter of free speech.

"We have freedom of speech in Denmark and we have tolerance for other religions," Moeller said.

"Like we respect the Arab countries, the Arab countries must respect us," he said in another live television interview.

Danish-based Arla Foods, Europe's largest dairy group, said Thursday it had noted sales dropping in Saudi Arabia. The company did not give any figures.

Saudi Arabia is one of Arla's largest markets outside Europe. The dairy group produces cheese, milk and butter at a subsidiary in Riyadh.

Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen has rejected calls that he intervene in the matter, saying the government has no sway over media.

AssalamuAlaikum Wa Rahmatullah. I found the following extracts on the Reuters website for those who are interested:

Saudi cleric wants Danish paper punished for cartoons
25 Jan 2006 12:36:59 GMT
Source: Reuters

RIYADH, Jan 25 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's top cleric has called on Denmark to punish a newspaper that ran cartoons portraying Prophet Mohammad, weighing into a row that has been raging across the Middle East for months.

Denmark's largest newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, ran 12 cartoons last September, including one in which Mohammad seems to be carrying a bomb in his turban. Islam considers images of prophets disrespectful and caricatures blasphemous.

"I call on officials in the Danish government to call to account the paper that published these cartoons and force it to apologise for its ugly crime," Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz al-Sheikh said in a statement published on Wednesday.

"It should impose a penalty as a deterrent on those who took part in provoking this subject. That's the least Muslims demand," it said.

Saudi Arabia is the birthplace of Islam and the state-appointed Sheikh is considered by many Sunni Muslims as one of the faith's leading authorities.

The Danish government appeared to have diffused the row with a New Year address by Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen which defended free speech but urged Danes to exercise the right without inciting hatred against Muslims.

The Danish ambassador in Riyadh issued a statement last week saying Denmark respects Islam and stating that the paper publishing the pictures is independent of the government.

Arab foreign ministers in December condemned the Danish government for not acting against the newspaper....

Alhamdulillaah, the 'ulemaa were aware of this issue perhaps even before some of us in the West!

Alhamdulillaah - the One who raises in each time those who will defend His Deen and stave off the evil efforts of those criminals who work to bring about nothing except their own harm.

The khtubah from the Haram in Madeenah given by Shaikh 'Alee Al-Hudhayfee (hafizahullaah) concerning the refutation of that evil act is found here http://www.mktaba.org/weekly/gmadina.rm
posted by the noble brother and one of the admins of Live Salafi Duroos Akh Abu Hamza As Salafee (hafizahullaah)- [url=http://www.sahab.net/sahab/showthread.php?threadid=331030]http://www.sahab.net/sahab/showthread.php?threadid=331030[/url]

Also, there was in tonight's dars with Shaikh Zaid Al-Madkhalee (hafizahullaah), a brief talk by the the Shaikh - jazaahullaahu wa 'aafaahu - found just before the Q&A session at (approximately 16min 55 secs) [url=http://www.njza.net/tapes/1426/12/28.rm]http://www.njza.net/tapes/1426/12/28.rm[/url]

Also, Al-Akh Abu 'Umar Usaamah Al-'Utaibee (hafizahullaah) has also written a brief risaalah concerning it found at [url=http://otiby.net/makalat/articles.php?id=123]http://otiby.net/makalat/articles.php?id=123[/url] & also [url=http://otiby.net/makalat/articles.php?id=122]http://otiby.net/makalat/articles.php?id=122[/url]
Shaikh Abu 'Umar began teaching 200 Q&A on 'Aqeedah by Al-Haafiz Al-Hakamee (rahimahullaah) and Seeratun-Nabiy (sallallaahu 'alaihe wa sallaam) from Ibn Katheer's (rahimahullaah) Al-Fusool in Live Salafi Duroos a couple weeks before Hajj 1426H.

A[url=http://www.sahab.net/sahab/showthread.php?s=&threadid=331119] collection of responses[/url] from several of the people of 'ilm in defense of the Noble Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu 'alaihe wa sallam) has been posted on sahab.net by one of the brothers, gathering the responses from
  • Shaikh 'Abdul 'Azeez Aalus-Shaikh (General Muftee of Saudi 'Arabia)
  • Shaikh Rabee' Al-Madkhalee
  • Shaikh Zaid Al-Madkhalee
  • Shaikh 'Alee Al-Hudhayfee, Imaam and Khateeb at Al-Haram An-Nabawiy
  • several other shyuukh (hafizahumullaah)

Shaikh Ahmad An-Najmee (hafizahullaah) [url=http://www.sahab.net/sahab/showthread.php?threadid=331123]mentioned that the boycotting of the Denmark products is the right (haqq) of the country (dawlah) and not that of individual persons (Afraad).[/url]

Shaikh Zaid Al-Madkhalee (hafizahullaah) [url=http://www.njza.net/tapes/1426/12/30.rm]spoke about the boycotting of the Denmark products & a general advice to the Christians to accept Islaam - dars of 30-12-1426H at around 37mins 45secs into the dars.[/url]

English translation of [url=http://madeenah.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=162&Itemid=40]Shaikh Al-Hudhayfee's (hafizahullaah) Khutbah[/url] - May Allaah reward the brothers for their efforts to seek His Pleasure.

Perhaps there are even more response from the people of 'ilm that are available.

May Allaah accept the efforts of the people of 'ilm an reward us all for our love and following of this noble manhaj of As-Salafiyah, and guide the misguided ones or destroy their heinous plots. Indeed He is Al-Qadeer Al-'Aziz Al-Qawiy.

Could a brother/sister kindly translate the speech of the Mufti for use in a newspaper article. Latest by Wednesday, but sooner the better.
