Dutch anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders said on Sunday he had ended a contest for cartoons caricaturing the Prophet Mohammad, only hours after announcing the contentious event.

In a tweet posted on Sunday morning, Wilders said international attention on the contest had enabled him to make a point about the importance of freedom of speech.

“Mission accomplished. End of contest,” he wrote above a picture of what he said was the winning drawing, depicting an angry-looking man with a beard.

Images of the Prophet Mohammad are traditionally forbidden in Islam as idolatrous. Caricatures are regarded by most Muslims as highly offensive.

Wilders canceled a similar contest in August last year after police arrested a man who had threatened to kill him over his plan.

  1. I really need the Ahmadiyyah Scholars to explan these Sahih Muslim Hadith:

    My Question: did Prophet Muhammad really kill infidel, blasphemy etc OR these hadis are false?

    Sahih Muslim 33—”I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah”
    .
    Sahih Muslim 4366—“ I will expel the Jews and Christian from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim”

    Sahih Muslim 6922:—Those who changed his Islamic religion, kill them.

    Sahih Tarmidzi: Those who martym will enter Paradise and will reward 71 Beautiful girls.

    Prophet Muhammad command Muslim to punish and kill : .

    I strongly urge Islamic Clerics that these Verses should be invalid NOW, that showing hatred to Chistianity and Jews.

    • How come you always ignore our explanations?

      I think I gave you this one before:

      What is the punishment for blasphemy in Islam?
      There is no punishment in Islam for blasphemy. No such punishment is prescribed in the Holy Quran, or in any of the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad(sa). 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(sa) where Abdullah bin Ubayyee (Chief of the hypocrites) continuously abused the Prophet(sa), and opposed him severely in Madinah.
      When he passed away, the Prophet(sa) 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(sa) ignored his statements and continued to offer the funeral prayers of the dead man. (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 192)
      The above example shows that the Prophet(sa) never ordered any punishment for anyone who insulted or abused him or God; on the contrary he went to pray for them that they be guided aright. Much has been written on this subject, for further details, please see the book ‘Murder in the Name of Allah’.
      If somebody uses foul language against any holy person or teaching, Islam advises to keep away from such people as The Holy Qur’an says,
      And when you see those who trifle with our signs then turn thou away from them until then engage in a discourse other than that and if Satan cause thee to forget then sit not, after recollection, with the unjust people. (Ch.6: V.69)

  2. Rafiq, So you ( Ahmadiyyah) are saying that above hadith are fabricated ( false) .by Imam Muslim. You do not believe in a great Imam Muslim in Islam? He was a lair or deceiver ? Most Islamic scholars believe in a great Imam Muslim.
    .
    I do not believe in Hadith. For me Hadith is the root of conflict, and poverty. Prophet asked his followers: Do not write about me accept Al Quran. Those who believe in men beside Allah alone is Syrick.
    .
    It seems to me that Ahmadiyyah agree with me finally 👍
    With love ❤️

    • We have not changed our views. We always stated that Allah has protected the Qur’an for all times. This protection did not extend to Hadith. As stated, if any hadith is in contradiction to the Quran we ignore it. Nothing new about this.

      • Rafiq—you are against Islamic scholars?

        The death punishment assigned for blasphemy is agreed by all Islamic scholars of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah and, is normally covered in Kitabul Hudud in Islamic juridical texts. Because of the evidence for blasphemy punishment being based on Ahadith, certain reported incidents during the lifetime of the Prophet (p.u.h.) and unanimous agreement of all Islamic scholars in all the ages (Ijma), many Islamic countries of the world including Saudi Arabia have legislated death punishment for blasphemy. It is only Qadianis, a community regarded infidels by Muslims across the world, who support no-punishment for blasphemy. It is very surprising that Mr. Wahiduddin Khan, ignoring many clear Ahadith and Ijma (consensus of Islamic jurists) of Islamic scholars – the second and the third most important sources of Islam- claims that no punishment should be meted out to the offender of blasphemy. He stayed blind to Ahadith and Ijma upon which thousands of Islamic injunctions are based.

        It is also noteworthy that not only Islam prescribes severe punishment for blasphemers but most of the major religions have prescribed death as punishment for blasphemy. It is stated in the Old Testament of the Bible, which is the authority for both the Jews and Christians:

        “And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: [Book of Leviticus 24:16]”

        Love for the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and defending his honour is an important part of belief for a Muslim and, thus, guarantees rewards from Allah. To defend the Prophet is, indeed, a service to humanity and nobility too.

      • Rafiq: God and Prophet order to punish and kill blasphemy, apostate and infidel.

        Fight those People of the Book who do not believe in Allah, nor in the Last Day, 8 and do not take as unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have declared as unlawful, and do not profess the Faith of Truth; (fight them) until they pay jizyah with their own hands while they are subdued. Q. 9:29.

        Sahih Muslim 6922:—Those who changed his Islamic religion, kill them.

        The extremist intolerant Muslim use these verses to execute Ahmadiyah.

        What do you think Rafiq?

    • According to God’s verse Q9:29– there is no freedom of speech or expression or faith.

      Al Quran in dilemma. There are so many interpretation of God’s verses and Hadith.

      With love ❤️

      • Alhamdolillah, the members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community do not have such a dilemma of which interpretation to accept and which to reject It is nice to follow The Guided One.
