Mocking the religion and its followers

Q 7: What is the ruling on ridiculing Din (religion) of Islam and religious people?

A: Holding Din and religious people up to ridicule is Riddah (apostasy) that takes the one who does it out of the fold of Islam. Allah (Exalted be He) says, Say: "Was it at Allâh (عز وجل), and His Ayât (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations) and His Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) that you were mocking?" Make no excuse; you disbelieved after you had believed. (Part No. 1; Page No. 411) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
