One of the intriguing aspects of the Arabic language is that the word for “right” is also the word for “responsibility”. They are two sides of one coin. Freedom of speech is a ‘right’ but it also has a great responsibility that goes with it. My own teacher, Shaykh Abdullah bin Bayyah, argues that we have to spread peace, as the Prophet Muhammadﷺ was a peacemaker trying to stop the violence widespread in the Arabian Peninsula at the time. He argues that within the context of peace we can redress many wrongs more effectively and with greater hope, than in the context of war – the outcome of which is never known.
