View Full Version : Suicide

February 2, 2004, 12:49 PM
After reading about the Jerusalem bombings and seeing the horrific pictures,
I was looking for an Islamic website to explain if technically suicide (and suicide bombing in particular) was permissible.

So actually Islam does not allow sucides, even as an act of war.


A shaheed-

The Prophet said, "The person who participates in (Holy battles) in Allah's cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and His Apostles, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr). Had I not found it difficult for my followers, then I would not remain behind any sariya going for Jihad and I would have loved to be martyred in Allah's cause and then made alive, and then martyred and then made alive, and then again martyred in His cause."

Unfortunately, the people involved in such acts are so warped in their view of the world, they truly believe that they are doing the right thing. All they are doing is dying for their political and religious leaders. That's what happens to you when you are unfortunate enough to be born in such environment/culture.
