Punishment for the one who insults Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have heard that if a Muslim woman or man insults the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) she or he should be executed or hanged to death even if she or he repents sincerely. Is this true?


A: This is applicable in an Islamic country.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
