The Ruling on Making Mockery of the Hijab.

Question:

What is the ruling on those who provoke the person who wears the Islamic headscarf, and describes them as imposters or a moving tent, and other forms of mockery?

Answer:

Anyone who mocks a Muslim woman or man due to his/her adherence to the Islamic laws, that person becomes a kaafri (an Infidel), whether the mockery has to do with the Islamic legal way of dress or it has to do with other Islamic issues. It was reported that Abdullah ibn 'Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) Narrated that:

[قال رجل في غزوة تبوك في مجلس: ما رأيت مثل قرائنا هؤلاء أرغب بطونًا، ولا أكذب ألسنًا، ولا أجبن عند اللقاء، فقال رجل: كذبت ولكنك منافق، لأخبرن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، فبلغ ذلك رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ونزل القرآن، فقال عبد الله بن عمر : وأنا رأيته متعلقًا بحقب ناقة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم تنكبه الحجارة وهو يقول: يا رسول الله، إنما كنا نخوض ونلعب، ورسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: {أَبِاللَّهِ وَآيَاتِهِ وَرَسُولِهِ كُنتُمْ تَسْتَهْزِئُونَ * لَا تَعْتَذِرُوا قَدْ كَفَرْتُم بَعْدَ إِيمَانِكُمْ ۚ إِن نَّعْفُ عَن طَائِفَةٍ مِّنكُمْ نُعَذِّبْ طَائِفَةً بِأَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا مُجْرِمِينَ} (التوبة: 65-66)].

[A man said at the battle of Tabuk in a gathering: I have never seen people in loving their stomach nor lie tellers nor cowardice in battle like these our readers, a man said: you lied, instead you are a hypocrite, I will surely tell the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), so it reached the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and verses of the Qur'an were revealed. Abdullah ibn 'Umar said: And I saw him holding the Prophet's camel while been stoned saying: "O Messenger of Allah, we were only conversing and playing. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: {Is it Allah and His verses and His Messenger that you were mocking? * Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after your belief. If We pardon one faction of you - We will punish another faction because they were criminals.} (At-Tawbah: 65-66).]

He made his mockery on the believers as equal to the mockery on Allah and His verses and His Messenger.

To Allah belong all success. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

Original text of the Fatwa in Arabic:

السؤال:

ما هو حكم من يستهزئ بمن ترتدي الحجاب الشرعي، ويصفها: بأنها عفريتة أو أنها خيمة متحركة، وغير ذلك من ألفاظ الاستهزاء؟

الإجابة:

من يستهزئ بالمسلمة أو المسلم من أجل تمسكه بالشريعة الإسلامية فهو كافر، سواء كان ذلك في احتجاب المسلمة احتجابًا شرعيًا أم في غيره؛ لما رواه عبد الله بن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال:  قال رجل في غزوة تبوك في مجلس: ما رأيت مثل قرائنا هؤلاء أرغب بطونًا، ولا أكذب ألسنًا، ولا أجبن عند اللقاء... إلخ.

وبالله التوفيق. وصلى الله على نبينا محمد، وآله وصحبه وسلم.
