‘O Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you in the same manner as he got your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their clothing, to expose their shame.’ (Quran 7:27)

 

Both freedom of expression and human dignity are values enshrined in the country’s constitution. From a Muslim’s point of view, we find the indecent painting of President Zuma as insulting and totally unacceptable on a number of grounds:


Freedom of expression has limits. It is not a licence to demean, ridicule and insult another. The Prophet  said: ‘Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak a good word or remain silent…’ (Bukhari)
 
Honour of humanity is sacred. Protection of honour is one of the objectives of Islam. Regardless of the personality of the one satirised, every human being deserves respect. The Quran commands: ‘O You who believe, do not let one set of people make fun of another set…’ (49:11)
 
Regardless of the justifications which have been put across for the kind of portrayal of President Zuma, who has been considered as ‘fair game’ for ridicule by sections of the media, the Quran instructs ‘…and, if you judge between mankind, that you judge justly.’ (4:58)
 
Islam shuns indecency. Every Friday we hear the Imam conclude his sermon by reciting the verse of the Quran: ‘…Allah enjoins justice, kindness and the doing of good, to kith and kin; and He forbids all that is shameful, indecent, evil, rebel l ious and oppressive.’ (16:90) The vulgarity of the painting has been apparent and even on that score alone, it is utterly obscene and objectionable.
 
Circulating. As for republishing and circulation of such indecent material, we have to remember that a Muslim is prohibited from speaking about everything that one hears: ‘It is sufficient for one to be called a liar the one who speaks about everything that he hears.’ (Muslim)
 
Islam has nothing to do with a freedom to insult. It lays emphasis on its exact opposite: the freedom from insult. It values human dignity, decency, and harmony in the society.
