THE WORD, SUICIDE BOMBING, IS NOT MENTIONED IN YOUR LISTING & SO, IT IS NOT SUPPORTED

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: Nozzi: Proof that Allah and his Apostle encouraged suicide bombing

Submitted by MOHAMAD NOZZI (Singapore), May 27, 2009 at 20:51

Quran 14:3 has been mentioned in your comment to support suicide bombing and let's read the verse carefully:

Quran 14:3, "Those who love the life of this world more than the Hereafter, who hinder (men) from the path of Allah and such therein something crooked, they are astray by a long distance." There is no such word, suicide bomb is mentioned in this verse to support your comment. However, let's examine the verse carefully. The word, Those, in Quran 14:3 does not mention specificfally that it is for muslims and so, it should include muslims and non-muslims as well. The phrase, Those who love the life of this world more than the Hereafter, in Quran 14;3 discourages all muslims as well as non-muslims to love or to appreciate or to enjoy the lives while we are on this earth. The phrase, hinder (men) from the path of Allah, in Quran 14:3 could be interpreted as to cause stumblingblock of non-muslims not to become muslims or to direct the wrong path or wrong intention or wrong interpretation of the Quran so as to mislead non-muslims not to become muslims. From the above analyses, Quran 14:3 does not seem to support suicide bombing instead, Allah urges all muslims not to hinder non-muslims to become stumblingblock due to our bad conducts to them. Thus, we, muslims, have to set good example or to have good conduct with non-muslims so that they would become muslims.

Quran 6;32, "What is the life of this world but play and amusement? But best is the home in the hereafter, for those who are righteous. Will ye not then understand?" Again, there is no such a phrase, suicide bombing, mentioned in Quran 6:32. Let's examine Quran 6:32 carefully again. The word, play, in Quran 6:32 can be interpreted as to play and/or to have fun in this life and this certainly includes sexual relationship as well since it is a kind of play and amusement. The phrase, What is the life of this world but play and amusement, in Quran 6:32 discourages muslims to have fun in this life since we must appreciate our lives to spend more than on Allah instead of for play and amusement. The phrase, But best is the home in the hereafter, in Quran 6:32 demands muslims to look forward in the future and that must be on the Last Judgment Day in which we, muslims, are saved Hereafter. The phrase, for those who are righteous, in Quran 6:32 urges all muslims that we, muslims, have to be righteous in order to be saved on the Last Judgment Day. Could a person be entitled to be called righteous if he sent airplanes to crash the building in United States of America without caring many muslims would have perished during the attack? Could a person call to be righteous that he carried a suicide bomb to go near to the armies of United Alliance without asking the soldiers of the enemies whether they are muslims and yet launched the attack to cause the deaths of muslims? Could a person call to be righteous if he, muslim, destroys the life of another muslim? Could a person call to be righteous if he encourages all muslims to carry suicide bombs to destroy the lives of non-muslims and as a result the whole muslims have been wiped off from the world? This is due to if all muslims would carry suicide bombs to destroy non-muslims, all muslims would have died by suicide bombing and nothing is left for any survival of muslims since all have died in suicide bombing.
