Summary: 

The Qur'an says that Allah curses the one who harms the Prophet in this world and He connected harm of Himself to harm of the Prophet. There is no dispute that anyone who curses Allah is killed and that his curse demands that he be categorised as an unbeliever. The judgement of the unbeliever is that he is killed.

Allah says, "Those who harm Allah and His Messenger, Allah has cursed them in this world and in the Next, and has prepared for them a humiliating punishment." (33:57). He said something similar about those who kill the believers. Part of the curse on them in this world is that they are killed. Allah says, "Cursed they will be. Wherever they are found, they are seized and all slain." (33: 61) He mentions the punishment of those who fight, "That is humiliation in this world for them." (5:45) "Killing(qatl) can have the meaning of "curse".[6] Allah says, "May the conjecturers be killed!" (51:11) and "May Allah fight them! How they are perverted!" (9:30) i.e. may Allah curse them.

This is because there is a difference between their harming Allah and His Messenger and harming the believers. Injuring the believers, short of murder, incurs beating and exemplary punishment. The judgement against those who harm Allah and His Prophet is more severe - the death penalty.

Summary: 

If you thought the public shaming and punishment of people for ridiculing religion was a thing of the past — a dark past when you’d be put in the stocks, or worse, for failing to bend your knee to certain gods and beliefs — then think again. Just look at the treatment of Olympian gymnast Louis Smith. Since a video of him taking the mick out of Islam was leaked in October, he’s been pilloried in the press, pressured to recant his heretical humour, dragged on to TV to repent before the Loose Women (the new guardians of public morality, apparently), and now he’s been suspended from his job for two months. All for having a laugh about a religion. There have been no rotten tomatoes or licking flames, but Smith’s treatment nonetheless echoes that time when ‘blasphemers’ were made to suffer for their thoughts and words.

Summary: 

Unfortunately, the plight of one minority being set upon – in particular, but not exclusively, by the Islamic State – has yet to become the subject of appropriate outrage around the world: Christians are being rounded up, raped, robbed and murdered by these and other jihadists across much of the Middle East. The Islamic State has even killed Christian children, just because of their faith. Typically, when IS jihadists conquer an area, they target Christian minorities by labeling their homes with the Arabic letter ن (pronounced “nun”), shorthand for the Arabic word Nasrani, which means Nazarene – a believer in Jesus of Nazareth and, therefore, a Christian. Once marked in this fashion, they are singled out for persecution, and given the simple choice – convert, submit or die.

In the lands controlled by the Islamic State, the Arabic letter ن is the modern day version of the Star of David that Jews were forced to wear in Nazi Germany and the lands it conquered.

Admin: People are suggesting use that symbol as a sign of resistance and support in the West.

Summary: 

How odd that a site that purports to give answers about Islam from learned imams would so misunderstand Islam as to think that apostates from Islam and those who say something impermissible about Islam should be put to death. Of course, there is no real misunderstanding here, but that is what Islamic apologists in the West would have us believe: that Islam is benign and completely compatible with Western principles of human rights, and only those who misunderstand it think otherwise.

In any case, this ruling is pertinent today, as it explains why Muslims react with such fury and violence to perceived “insults” to Muhammad: in accord with his example, they consider verbal attacks on Islam even worse than physical ones, and believe that those who perpetrate such perceived attacks must be put to death. “Some of the rulings on apostasy and apostates,” fromIslam QA (thanks to Paul):
