“Moderate” Muslims generally point out that Islam condemns suicide. For that reason, they argue that suicide terrorists guilty of killing scores of innocent people are not ‘true’ Muslims.
ISLAM CONDEMNS SUICIDE
Notwithstanding the fact that Muhammed himself considered suicide when he received his first ‘visions’ from the archangel Gabriel and suffered this as a traumatic experience, he forbade the act of suicide.
The Quran proclaims in verse 4.29.
29. O ye who believe! Eat not up your property among yourselves in vanities: But let there be amongst you Traffic and trade by mutual good-will: Nor kill (or destroy) yourselves: for verily Allah hath been to you Most Merciful!
The Hadith/traditions passed on by Muhammed state that the manner in which someone has committed suicide will be replicated forever in hell. Someone who took poison will in hell suffer the continuous sensation of being poisoned anew.
However, who fights on the “path of Allah” and in the process undertakes a suicidal action is not deemed to have committed suicide but rather becomes a martyr and is thus guaranteed admission into paradise. This is reflected by the following verse in the Quran:
9.111. Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur'an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah. then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.
In Islamic circles there is uniform consent that a Muslim who combats occupation and in the process carries out a suicide mission is a martyr.
There are, in effect, immigrant organisations in Belgium that support Hamas while it is a known fact that Hamas deliberately stands behind the killing of innocent people by suicidal acts.
