Al-Islam and Suicide
Suicide is strictly forbidden in Al-Islam. From the Islamic perspective ALLAH is the author of life and it is only He who could take life or tell human beings what conditions a life should be taken under. As human beings we don't own our lives, ALLAH does. As such we don't have the authority to take it. Suicide is disrespecting ALLAH and being ungrateful for the life He has given us. Today we are led to believe that while Islam strongly condemns suicide, somehow Muslims have become the best promoters of it. As a result of conflicts in Muslim countries, suddenly we have suicidal Muslims rising up all over the world in absolute disobedience to the teachings in their religion. Oddly enough in Iraq, Israel, India and other countries, non-Muslim perpetrators were caught faking suicide bombings to be blamed on Muslims. So what does the Qur’an and Hadiths say about suicide and what has been the example of Muslims throughout history regarding using suicide as a technique in war? Are Muslims really responsible for all the suicide bombings that the media is blaming them for? This section will address these questions and many more.
....in Baghdad when an Iraqi driver had his license and car confiscated at a checkpoint, after which he was instructed "to report to an American military camp near Baghdad airport for interrogation and in order to retrieve his license." After being questioned for a short while, he was told to drive his car to an Iraqi police station, where his license had been forwarded, and that he should go quickly. "The driver did leave in a hurry, but was soon alarmed with a feeling that his car was driving as if carrying a heavy load, and he also became suspicious of a low flying helicopter that kept hovering overhead, as if trailing him. He stopped the car and inspected it carefully. He found nearly 100 kilograms of explosives hidden in the back seat and along the two back doors. The only feasible explanation for this incident is that the car was indeed booby trapped by the Americans and intended for the al-Khadimiya Shiite district of Baghdad. The helicopter was monitoring his movement and witnessing the anticipated ‘hideous attack by foreign elements."
Shining Light on the "Black World"
In January of 2002, the Washington Post ran a story detailing a CIA plan put forward to President Bush shortly after 9/11 by CIA Director George Tenet titled, "Worldwide Attack Matrix," which was "outlining a clandestine anti-terror campaign in 80 countries around the world. What he was ready to propose represented a striking and risky departure for U.S. policy and would give the CIA the broadest and most lethal authority in its history." The plan entailed CIA and Special Forces "covert operations across the globe," and at "the heart of the proposal was a recommendation that the president give the CIA what Tenet labeled "exceptional authorities" to attack and destroy al Qaeda in Afghanistan and the rest of the world." Tenet cited the need for such authority "to allow the agency to operate without restraint -- and he wanted encouragement from the president to take risks." Among the many authorities recommended was the use of "deadly force."
“They plot and plan, and God too plans; but the best of planners is God"
"The patriotic Jew, Paul of Tarsus, in a word, was probably the first man to see the possibilities of conducting war by propaganda.”
~From Marcus Eli Ravage “Commissary to the Gentiles”
The following article establishes the strong prohibition in Qur’an and Hadiths for suicide.
For Muslims, the following point is emphasized very strongly in that article and runs contrary to what we are told about Muslims and suicide in Western media:
It is He Who giveth life
and who taketh it,
and to Him shall ye
all be brought back. [10:56]
God is the author of life and it is only He who could take life or tell human beings under what conditions a life should be taken such as in punishment for murder and spreading destruction and havoc in the land. As human beings we don't own our lives, God does! As such we don't have the authority to take it. Suicide is disrespecting God and being ungrateful for the life He has given us.
Denying that suicide is permitted in Islam is enough for most Muslims. Reports about Muslims committing suicide will be strongly condemned by Muslim leaders and the declaration that the person committing suicide was going against Islam -–not following the religion -- will be made. That is as far as many Muslims would go to address the issue regarding suicide and Islam. But this still does not answer the question that is burning in so many people's minds regarding why are there so many suicide killings done mainly by Muslims all over the world? Aren't all the suicidal Muslims familiar with the simple texts in their Qur'an and Hadiths about the strong prohibition on suicide and the devastating punishments for those committing it? According to what we read and hear in the media, a suicide bombing takes place just about every day in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the Muslim world and the senseless killing takes the lives of countless innocents. Why do Muslims today disobey their religion on such a grand scale -- especially when fighting Americans and Israelis -- to go against the clear prohibition in their religion about suicide to cause senseless deaths not only to the enemy but to their own people?
While the Israeli government has turned the Gaza strip and West Bank regions of Palestine into virtual prison camps, there is one section of the Palestinian community that appears to enjoy unhindered freedom of movement and a blind eye form the Israeli camps guards: "suicide bombers".
Today, one of these rare breed allegedly managed to get all the way down to the southern tip of Israel, to the Red Sea resort town of Eilat.
At 9.45 this morning (Eilat time), we are told that a "Palestinian suicide bomber" detonated his explosives in a small bakery, killing three people and himself. As with every other "suicide bombing" attributed to Palestinians over the past 6 years, we are forced to rely only on the claims of Israeli state security forces that each bombing was indeed a "suicide" attack. Such claims are almost always made within minutes of the event, subsequently propagating virus-like around the world's news agencies so that, by the time the world public gets wind of the news, it is already a closed case. There is however much to be gained from looking at the details of these alleged suicide bombings, because when we do, problems with the story invariably arise, not to mention uncomfortable questions.
or "Hi, my name is Abdula. I'll be your suicide bomber this evening"
People, let's use our noggins. The suicide bombers are not what they seem to be.
For many months now, I have been reading stories in the Washington Post and the Washington Times about alleged "suicide bombers". Within a short time after the attack, not only is the suicide bomber identified by name, but we have nice colored photos, almost portrait quality shots, of the dead culprits.
For example, on April 27, 2002, the Washington Post ran an article in the Style section, "Female Suicide Bombers: the New Factor in Mideast's Deadly Equation." Shown at the top of the article are four color photos of the faces of four Palestinian (?) women, face to the camera, posed for the photographer.
How thoughtful of the suicide bombers to have those photos taken. How thoughtful of the suicide bombers to leave the photos behind to be conveniently found by the Zionist-owned press. And what a public service the Zionist-owned press is doing the whole world by publishing these photos.
