Blasphemy

Q:

A friend of mine said blasphemous statements against the prophet God  forbid he wants if Allah will forgive him if he repents sincerely kindly clarify

A:

In the Nam of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-giving.

All praise is due to Allah. Peace and blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad.

A Muslim has to be watchful over his tongue. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “A man may utter a word that pleases Allah considering it of no much significance, for which Allah elevates his ranks (in the Paradise)). Still a man may speak a word that displeases Allah considering it of no much significance, for which he will sink down into Hell.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Uttering words of disbelief has no excuse except being under unavoidable coercion. In the Quran we read what means “(Doomed is) one who (openly) disbelieves in Allah, after (professing) his faith- except for one who has been compelled (to renounce his belief), while his heart remains at peace with faith. But whoever willingly opens his heart to unbelief- upon (such as these) there shall be great wrath from Allah. Thus for them, there is a great torment.” (An-Nahl 16:106)

Still out of His grace, Allah, the All-Merciful, has opened the gate of repentance wide for all those who repent sincerely and earnestly to Him no matter how grave their sins are. In the Quran we read, “Say, (O Prophet): O My servants! Those (of you) who have committed (sins in great) excess against their own souls, never despond of the mercy of Allah! For, indeed, Allah forgives sins, one and all. Indeed, it is He (alone) who is the All-Forgiving, the Mercy-Giving.” (39:53)

The Quran also promises acceptance of sincere repentance even from apostates, “How shall Allah guide a people who have disbelieved after (they have professed) their faith and borne witness that the Messenger is true, and (after) the clear proofs (of Allah) have come to them? For Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people (who are godless in heart). As for (the likes of) these, their recompense is that upon them is the curse of Allah, and (of) the angels and (of) humanity all together……. except for those (of them) who repent after this (breach of faith), and set things aright. For, indeed, Allah is all-forgiving, mercy-giving.” (Aal Imran 3:86-89)

 Therefore, this brother needs to turn in sincere repentance of Allah and to ask Him to forgive his sin. Sincere repentance wipes out sins renders one as sinless as he was when first born.

Almighty Allah knows best.
