Defending the honour of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

Reference: From a lecture entitled {Surely We will be sufficient for you against the mockers} – soorah al-Hijr, aayah 95

Question: How do we make [our] defence of the [honour of] the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) align with the parameters of the Sharee’ah? And are demonstrations [in protecting his honour] a means legislated by the Sharee’ah?

Response: Refuting the enemies of the Messenger (sal-Allaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) is [done] in light of what has been prescribed in the Book of Allaah and in the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu ’alayhi wa sallam).

And [as such], we do not create parameters or terminologies from ourselves, and nor do we invent things (means) which were not present before, such as demonstrations, shouting and yelling, and what is similar to that.
