Alleged blasphemy: Zahra Buhari post by Saudi Islamic scholar advising Muslims not take matters into their own hands when people insult the Prophet

President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, Zahra Buhari-Indimi, has tweeted a video of Saudi Islamic scholar Sheikh Assim Al-Hakeem instructing Muslims on how to respond to those who insult the Prophet.

Sheikh Al-Hakeem is believed to be one of Saudi Arabia’s most famous proponents of Islam in English.

On Sunday, May 14, two days after the horrible murder of a female student in Sokoto, Deborah Samuel, for supposed blasphemy, the mother of two published a few seconds of the footage on her Instagram stories.

In the video, Sheikh Al-Hakeem said people should not take matters into their own hands when someone insults the prophet. 

“This depends if you are in a Muslim country. This is a major offence that requires the intervention of the Muslim ruler. You simply report these individuals to the court or to the Muslim ruler,” he said. 

“It’s the duty of the Muslim ruler to execute after going through the legistrative processes and going in front of panel of judges.

“You must not take matters into your own hands because this will turn the community into a jungle.” he added.
