As sign of nearness of victory

    Mocking and cursing at the Messenger (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam) by a people is a prelude to their physical or moral defeat. Shaikhul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) said, ‘Allah will extract revenge for His Messenger from those who slander and attack him. Allah will make His religion prevalent and will expose the lies of the liars if the people cannot apply the penal law a slanderer deserves. Many trustworthy Muslim scholars have conveyed numerous accounts of their practical experiences in different cities in the Levant. They said, ‘The Muslims besieged the Romans for long periods, like a month and more, until they (i.e. the Muslims) almost gave up on victory; no sooner than the dwellers of those Roman cities would start cursing the Prophet (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam) that Allah facilitated victory and we conquered them. It was never delayed for more than a day or two after they started cursing & defaming the Prophet (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam).’

[A declaration condemning the attack by reporters from Denmark and Norway against the Prophet by Shaikh Muhammad Salih Al-Munajjid]

So, from the ways of Allah is that He sometimes punishes His enemies with a torment of His own, and He sometimes does so at the hands of His believing servants.
