Lecture: Freedom of religion and belief in Islam (video)

Mr. Abdul Fattah Morro gave his second lecture "Religious Freedom and Freedom of Belief in Islam" on Tuesday, December 29, 2020, from one o'clock afternoon to two and a half, as well as a high following rate of more than 23,000 followers.

In his lecture, Morro answered a pivotal question: how much respect Islam has for religious freedom, and how much he supports texts and actual practice, noting that an important issue that arises in this respect is Islamic governance in apostasy and in the right way.

The professor explained that the Quran texts are full of the assertion that every soul has done clemency, and that the work of the preacher, the first of the preachers as Allah's Messenger, does not seek to force people to disagree with what they believe. "You should not guide them, but Allah guides whom He wills, and what you spend is good for yourselves, and what you spend is only in pursuit of Allah's face, and what is good will be given to you," ( Al-baqarah 272 ) 

The Holy Quran speaks of apostates and hypocrites, describing some of them as "apostates" and "others". While the worldly punishment of apostates, this is what the nation's scholars have argued is that judgment is delayed until the Day of Judgment. Therefore, the Quran does not contain any worldly punishment. There is no apostate in the Prophet's biography and even those who were killed in opening Makkah.

On the freedom of conscience, which was guaranteed by the Tunisian constitution of 2014 and sparked excitement in Tunisia, Sheikh Abdel Fattah Morro said that the confusion is that freedom of conscience is broader than freedom of belief and includes freedom of conduct, freedom to adopt values, and more beyond belief.

On the other hand, these beliefs do not become freedom if they violate public order, because they are thus part of the community system. Therefore, respecting freedoms does not require allowing hurting the feelings of others or attacking their virtues, like the paintings of the Prophet Mohamed that were raised in France, which the European Court considered wrong because it attacked the sanctities of Muslims, as well as the Tunisian constitution which, according to its provisions on freedom of conscience, considers that time a citizen to choose what he wants.
