Haitham al-Haddad – Insulting the Gods of the kuffar

Posted on January 28, 2014

“In the UK, some brothers, we were working together in developing a halal student loan, yeah? A halal student loan for the students in universities. And the brothers who met some people in charge from the government side, they said that whenever they hear ‘sharia compliant’ they go mad. They said we don’t want. Why? Because if we allow you to have a sharia compliant student loan the media will go against us, pressure groups will go against us and we will create a big problem for no reason. So people started to hate the word sharia. Why? To be honest with you, partially because of some Muslims. And we have to be careful brothers and sisters, Allah (Jalla Wa Ala) says in the Quran: Wala tasubboo allatheena yadAAoona min dooni Allahi fayasubboo Allaha AAadwan bighayri AAilmin – don’t insult the Gods of the kuffar if they are going to insult Allah as a result of this. So if you know that when you are going to insult the Gods of the kuffar, yeah? Imagine a Hindu who worships a cow and then you start to insult that cow as a God, and you know that by doing this he will what? He will start swearing and insulting Allah (Jalla Wa Ala), don’t do it. Don’t do it. Protect the name of Allah (Jalla Wa Ala) not to be insulted. Although, sometimes insulting the Gods of the kuffar is wajeb [obligatory], yes? Sometimes. And sometimes is recommended. But if it is going to lead to the insult of Allah (Jalla Wa Ala) don’t do it.”
