in response to reader comment: Nozzi: Proof that Allah and his Apostle encouraged suicide bombing

Sahih Bukhari, volume 4, Book 52, Number 53, "Narrated Asas bin Malik: The Prophet said, 'Nobody who dies and finds good from Allah ( in the hereafter) would wish to come back to this world even if he were given the whole world and whatever is in it, except the martyr who, on seeing the superiority of martyrdom, would like to come back to the world and get killed again (in Allah's cause)". The phrase, Nobody who dies and finds good from Allah, in Bukhari, volume 4, book 52, number 53 implies that these people that were martyred were undoubtedly to be non-muslims since there were those people that would not find good in Allah since they do not appreciate Allah. The phrase, Nobody...finds good from Allah, in Bukhari, volume 4, book 52, number 53 gives an absolute certainty that this verse should not be applicable to muslims since muslims are those that find good in Allah and they are those that believe in Allah and his Last Judgment Day. As Bukhari, volume 4, book 52, number 53 is not meant for muslims, it is erroneous to use it to support suicide bombing.

The phrase, would like to come back to the world and get killed again (in Allah's cause), in Bukhari, volume 4, book 52, number 53, certainly refers to the dead have become alive again. The phrase, would like to come back to this life, should not be interpreted as there would be such thing as this life and next life to support re-incarnation since muslims do not support this teaching since we, believe that after this life comes the Last Judgment Day. As such, the phrase, would like to come back to this world and get killed again (in Allah's cause), should be interpreted as non-muslims would come back to lives once to meet the Last Judgment Day by Allah.

From the above analysis, it is not appropriate to use this verse to support suicide bombing since this verse is meant for non-muslims.
