Is freedom of speech good or bad?

2:120 And the Jews and the Christians will never be pleased with you until you follow their religion. Say, "Indeed, the Guidance of Allah is the Guidance." And if you follow their desires after what has come to you of the knowledge, you will have neither any protector from Allah nor any helper.

4:46 Among the Jews are those who distort words from their places and they say, "We hear and disobey" and "Hear but be not heard” and "Raina", twisting their tongues and defaming the religion. And if they had said, "We hear and obey" and "Hear and look at us”, it would surely have been better for them and more suitable. [And] but Allah cursed them for their disbelief, so they believe not, except for a few.

(Freedom of speech is a man-made term, invented in Europe, which is controversial, and not infallible, but depends on the person who speaks, so what they call “freedom of speech” could be just slander or defamation, so it has to be called “defamation”, not “freedom of speech”, because this wrong name could be taken as a cover, because it sounds good to the masses. Defamation should be penalized)(There are matters about Islam in which Muslims and non-Muslims disagree, but it is our religion, not theirs. E.g., they could say that the veil oppress women, while the veil is modesty, and whether she is a Christian nun or a Muslim woman, it is their right to wear it, lest you oppress them)(It is not only about Muslims / Islam, even the non-Muslims have to restrict and sometimes forbid “freedom of speech”, because they are victims of what they invent)(Allah knows best)

24:4 And those who accuse chaste women, then they do not bring four witnesses, then flog them with eighty lashes and never accept their testimony. And those, they are the defiantly disobedient,

5:116 And when Allah said, "O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say to the people, "Take me and my mother as two gods besides Allah?" He said, "Glory be to You, it was not for me to say what I had no right. If I had said it, then surely You would have known it. You know what is in myself, and I do not know what is in Yourself. Indeed, You, You are All-Knower of the unseen.

3:66 Here you are - those who argued about that of which you have knowledge. Then why do you argue about that of which you have no knowledge? And Allah knows, while you do not know.

2:170 And when it is said to them, "Follow what Allah has revealed," they said, "Nay, we follow what we found our forefathers (following)". Even though their forefathers did not understand anything, nor were they guided?

16:116 And do not say about what your tongues assert, a lie, "This is lawful and this is forbidden," so that you invent a lie about Allah. Indeed, those who invent a lie about Allah, they will not succeed.

24:15 When you received it with your tongues and you said with your mouths what not for you of it any knowledge, and you thought it (was) insignificant, while it (was) great near Allah.

52:11 Then woe, that Day, to the deniers, 52:12 Who are playing in their (vain) discourse.

6:68 And when you see those who engage (in vain talks) about Our Verses, then turn away from them until they engage in a talk other than it. And if Satan causes you to forget, then do not sit after the reminder with the people - the wrongdoers.

18:22 They say three, the fourth of them being their dog; and they say five, the sixth of them being their dog - guessing about the unseen; and they say seven, and the eight of them was their dog. Say, "My Lord, knows best their number. None knows them except a few. So do not argue about them except with an obvious argument, and do not inquire about them among them from anyone."

61:8 They intend to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His Light although the disbelievers dislike it.

9:32 They want to extinguish Allah's light with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His Light, even if the disbelievers dislike (it).

26:91 And the Hellfire (will be) made manifest to the deviators.

5:58 And when you make a call for prayer, they take it in ridicule and fun. That is because they are a people who do not use reason.

2:11 And when it is said to them, "Do not spread corruption on the earth," they say, "We are only reformers." 2:12 Indeed, they are the ones who spread corruption, but they do not realize (it).

6:112 And thus We made for every Prophet an enemy - devils from mankind and jinn, inspiring one another with decorative speech in deception. But if your Lord had willed, they would not have done it, so leave them and what they invent.

49:12 O you who believe, avoid much assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy and do not backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, you would hate it. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.

10:36 And most of them follow nothing except assumption. Indeed, assumption does not avail anything against the truth. Indeed, Allah is All-Knower of what they do.

68:2 You are not, by the Grace of your Lord, a madman. 68:3 And indeed, for you surely is an endless reward. 68:4 And indeed, you surely are of a great moral character. 68:5 So you will see, and they will see, 68:6 Which of you is the afflicted one. 68:7 Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of (he) who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of the guided ones.

3:99 Say, "O People of the Book, why do you hinder those who believe from the way of Allah, seeking to make it (seem) crooked, while you are witnesses? And Allah is not unaware of what you do.

3:61 Then whoever argues with you concerning it after what came to you of the knowledge - then say, "Come, let us call our sons and your sons, and our women and your women, and ourselves and yourselves, then let us humbly pray, and invoke the curse of Allah on the liars.
