This is what the Quran actually says about blasphemy

Blasphemy laws began in Christian countries, and started appearing in Muslim majority countries after British imperialism. But if we go back to the Quran, we can see that what’s happening in Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and Pakistan isn’t faithfully Islamic at all

In the same week that Stephen Fry was investigated under Irish blasphemy laws, a governor in Indonesia was convicted after rebuking claims by clerics about Quranic law about how Muslims should vote Getty

  1. Reblogged this on Progressive Islam. and commented:
    Blasphemy law is against the true Islam ( Al Quran), but it came from the book of Hadith. The book of Hadith is not the word of God, the word of men or idols. The book of Hadith is the root of conflict, poverty and war.

    So Islamic teaching has been contaminated by false Hadith. The blasphemy law have been causing thousand innocent people became victims and put in Jail. Islam is not a religion of peace anymore, it is very sad indeed.

    Islamic teaching should be reformed or changed in order Islam can become a religion of peace / mercy again. Otherwise the killing innocent people will continue to our next generation.Very sad indeed. We need to do something for our next generation.

  2. Islamic teachings don’t need to be reformed, we need to go back to true Islamic teachings.
    There is no punishment in Islam for blasphemy. No such punishment is prescribed in the Holy Qur’an, or in any of the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad(saw). Islam promotes the need for respect of all religions for the sake of peace in society, but it does not set out any punishment for blasphemy despite the offence it may cause people of faith.

    We have evidence in the traditions of the Holy Prophet(saw) where Abdullah bin Ubayyee (Chief of the hypocrites) continuously abused the Prophet(saw), and opposed him severely in Madinah.
    When he passed away, the Prophet(saw) stood to offer his funeral prayers but was asked by one of his companions, “O Allah’s Apostle! Do you offer the prayer for this man although he said so-and-so on such-and-such-a day?” and “that he is a hypocrite!”.
    The Prophet(saw) ignored his statements and continued to offer the funeral prayers of the dead man. (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 192)
