Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu ‘ala rasulullaah
Question to Shaikh Fawzaan :
May Allaah show you kindness. Some caller (to Islaam) says:
The border line of apostasy is a political affair and it has no place (in society) today. He says that it is permissible to raise objections against the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam); rather (it is permissible to raise objections against) Allaah (The Mighty and Majestic).
What is the ruling on his statement, is it considered apostasy?
Without doubt that which is behind this (statement) is apostasy. The one who makes fun of Allaah, His Messenger and the Islamic laws – what is there after this except apostasy; this is the severest type of apostasy.
