Article: In Defence Of The Great Prophet

By Sheikh Muhammad Mahmud Turi

In the name of Allah who states “Surely, We will suffice you against the scoffers” Q15:Peace and blessings of Allah be upon His chosen servant, our master Muhammad and his pure progeny. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, and for the first time, this weekly column had experienced a considerable pause in its history. While regretting the circumstantial pause, we pray not to experience it again. No doubt, so many topical issues have passed within the period just as others prevail at both local and international levels that I cannot easily reflect to share my view with our esteemed readers. However, I hope to touch few ones especially those that touched our lives generally. Basically, I will like to briefly remind us on the lessons of Mauludin Nabiy (s), and most importantly, carry our esteemed readers through the topic above. Obviously, a lot was said and written on the personality of the prophet peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and his purified progeny. We could easily recall what happened recently in France when the enemies of peace and humanity made fun of this great prophet through caricatures they attributed to his exalted personality in the name of freedom of speech or expression!
