South Park Depicts Prophet Muhammad(saw) in Cartoon!

Fans of the popular series South Park are waiting for tonight’s episode after it was revealed the episode will include a portrayal of the character of the Muslim prophet, Muhammad.

The controversy started in 2005 when a Danish newspaper ran a series of comics where an image of Muhammad was shown. It raised protests in the middle east where Muslims burned Danish embassies in Syria, Lebanon, and Iran.

This is not the first time the creator of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, produced episodes including Muhammad in the character. In July 4, 2001 an episode entitled Super Best Friends successfully aired with the prophet depicted.

People are waiting if tonight’s episode will be really aired or canceled.

The episode aired April 15, 2010 and depicted Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit and speaking funny. Anderson Cooper aired his story tonight on CNN. On the ac360 website the blog about this is entitled, Evening Buzz: Radical Islamic Website Warns 'South Park' Creators. The Revolution Muslim website posted this on their website.

“We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”

  1. They only do these things to get this kind of uproar and publicity. We are kinda giving them what they want here.

    They also make fun relentlessly of Prophet Jesus. I'm sure there are Christian groups with the same issues. I'm not going to watch it as it just feeds what they want, I can only assume having seen the show before its rather degrading.

    People will keep doing these things under the idea of "free Speech" doesnt make it right, just legal :(

  2. Quran surah 108.

    1. Verily, We have granted you (O Muhammad ()) Al-Kauthar (a river in Paradise);

    2. Therefore turn in prayer to your Lord and sacrifice (to Him only).

    3. For he who makes you angry (O Muhammad ()), - he will be cut off (from every good thing in this world and in the Hereafter).

  3. I agree with blue abayas. Shows like these relentlessly make fun of anything and everything anyone could possibly find sacred. Unfortunately, it could start violent protests furthering the stereotypes...Muslims should be smarter than this.

  4. The men of RevolutionMuslim.com also pretty much suggested that the creators of South Park needed to be murdered, with the posting of a picture of Theo Van Gogh with their post. However, messing with a tv show that's real popular with certain segments of geekdom led to a predictable result: first the site was hacked, now it's down completely.

    One of my friends watched the show and he said you don't know who really is in the bear suit. It could be a total fakeout.

  5. This is pretty ridiculous. Who cares if someone is making fun of your faith? Leave it to your deity, be it God/Allah/Jesus/Vishnu/etc to punish them. We are wrong to assume we know the mind of God and his intentions.

  6. I am curious if it is up to Allah to kill those who offend Him and his messengers or are there a select group of people responsible for this killing by the sword....unless i misunderstood the video and the article i read on Ayaan Hirisi

  7. Not that im defending the creators of south park, but they make fun of EVERYBODY. Jews, Christians, Muslims, Gingers, Scientologists so it doesnt surprise me at all that they're mentioning rasulallah (saw) in their show. However, I did watch the second half of this episode and they did completely block out Muhammad's name (when they mentioned him they bleeped it out) so that does bring me some kind of satisfaction I guess.

  8. muslimah2muslimah,
    i would like to know your opinion of it?

    i believe in freedom of speech. south park ( and shows like that make fun of everybody). i mean they had Jesus, Buddha, Vishnu. But you dont see Hindus, Jews, Mormons, Christians or Buddhists making anti-South Park campaigns over the depiction of people sacred to their religion. So of course, I am support of south park & freedom of speech . last nights episode went to far. they also bleeped out the word "muhammad" and 35 seconds of a conversation between Stan and other characters

  9. i am the same anonymous,

    but enough is enough.
    if you dont like the fact that Muhammad wasn't depicted...then go to Saudi Arabia because here in the U.S. we have stuff like that. We have freedom of press. I want them to air the episode uncensored, dont want to see Muhammad depicted by nonmuslims...then dont watch it.
    If this gets any bigger, the end result will only be bad.

  11. To live in a country like America means protecting the rights of those who wish to express themselves freely...even people who hold pro-bin laden rallies in New york city. Its funny how muslim radicals run around yelling all this hate, and when a show like south park rips on them its so wrong in their eyes! Grow up ppl, this is America, you cant freak out everytime someone offends you...if you dont want free speech and still want to hate on america then move to Iran!

  12. Yes this is America which values free speech. And we Muslims also have the right to be offended by it and state that. Freedom of expression runs both ways, so you can't tell people who are offended to go live in Saudi Arabia. I was born in this country, as the past ten generations of my family were. I will comment if something offends me regardless of the topic.

  13. And the fact that South Park rips on and degrades all faiths doesn't make it acceptable. Intentionally disrespecting in such a manner is really immature and pointless. Recognizing this doesn't make one a radical.

  15. We as Muslims have the right to get offended. South Park has the right to show their cartoon on television. While I am offended, I do think that South Park's first amendment rights were violated.

    I agree with a pose above... if there is something on television that you don't like, then you ought to not watch it. Whether it be offensive to your religion or race; your weight or your height.

    All I'm saying is that the cartoon should not have been censored. We should also be allowed to be as angry as we want. I love this country but it saddens me that terrorism has successfully stomped on one of the integral rights of the people.

  16. bismillah,

    we have the right to dislike it.
    but we will respond with wisdom insyaAllah.

    3:159-160

    It is part of the Mercy of Allah that thou dost deal gently with them. Wert thou severe or harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from about thee: so pass over (their faults), and ask for (Allah's) forgiveness for them; and consult them in affairs (of moment). Then, when thou hast taken a decision, put thy trust in Allah. For Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him).

    If Allah helps you none can overcome you: if He forsakes you, who is there, after that, that can help you? In Allah, then, let Believers put their trust.

    Remember how Rasulullah PBUH responded when he was thrown with stones in Taif?

    ~SQ

  17. I used to love your blogs and videos. I'm in a small city without many Muslims, although I converted years ago. Muslimah2muslimah.com used to be the only site I felt comfortable directing friends to view TI sent friends to your site because I felt my friends could relate to you as African American Muslim women. I believed they could benefit for your example. Now that you're rocking the veil any friends I send to your site will if hey become Muslim they'll be required to wear veils also.
