THE HARAAM PROTEST MARCH
Question: On Friday 5 October, a protest march will be organized in Durban to protest against the film insulting Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Is it permissible to join in this protest?
These protest marches are in emulation of the kuffaar. They are stupid functions which have no relationship with Islam. Furthermore, of recent, the type of ‘protest’ being organized appears to be designed to appease the Americans and to lick their boots. Therefore, the organizers of the exhibition of jaahiliyyah on 5 October, say in their notice: “Lets show the world we can protest peacefully”. The whole stupid stunt is some cheap publicity and to curry favour with the Americans by demonstrating that “we Muslims are civilized”. These stupid organizers are keen to show uncivilized barbarians that we are civilized.
Muslims are not supposed to be obsequious like poodles when they are required to stand up for Islam and the honour of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). In a situation such as the present day living in a non-Muslim country, the only options for Muslims are Sabr and Dua. Stupid kuffaar-type marches in which hooliganism dominates, are foreign to Islam.
Furthermore, the contemplated protest march will be a ZINA event. Men and women will mingle. Women will be in reckless violation of Hijaab. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) described women who perfume themselves and pass by gatherings as being like adulteresses. These women who participate in public marches acting like baboons are immoral and come within the scope of Zaaniyah.
The ‘peaceful’ marches, protests and the ghandi style flinging of flowers are, in the words of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), emulation of the kuffaar to the extent of “crawling behind them into the lizard’s hole”.
IT IS HARAAM FOR MUSLIMS TO JOIN IN THE CONTEMPLATED STUPID PROTEST MARCH. ANY ACTION WHICH IS IN VIOLATION OF THE SHARIAH IS MAL’OON (ACCURSED) AND HARAAM
