Impermissible to murder cartoonist that drew the Prophet ﷺ

Impermissible to murder the cartoonist that drew the Prophet ﷺ

Questioner:

Is it allowed to murder the disbelieving cartoonist that is famous for having publicized cartoons of the prophet- صلى الله عليه وسلم (sallā Allāhu’ alayi wa sallam)?”

Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan – may Allaah preserve him:

“This is not a correct way. They will only become more worse and more hateful against the Muslims. It will only increase them in evil and hatred against the Muslims. What troubles them is that their doubt is refuted and embarrassment is revealed. To show ones support with the hand and the weapon belongs to the Muslim ruler’s disposal over jihâd for the sake of Allâh (‘azaa wa djall).
