Would you allow me to argue
That God did not authorize anyone on earth after the Prophet
To speak in His name nor did He vest any powers in anybody
To release ‘deeds of forgiveness’ to people?
Feeling heart broken for courts decision for #JunaidHafeez. After such a long night there was no dawn to be seen. It took 6 years of prison and judicial work to come to this decision. What a physical and emotional torture for him and his family! #freejunaidhafeez https://t.co/zK7OKCUlUk
You men fucking disgust me. If having your own viewpoints and perspective is thought about anti-islam, you need a fucking truth check. There is no law in Islam for blasphemy. You can’t simply fucking kill everyone who isn’t a muslim or has his pov. Idiots. #freejunaidhafeez
