Reader comment on item: Converts to Terrorism

Submitted by Mu'een Ud Deen (United Kingdom), Dec 13, 2005 at 09:05

Asalaamu Alaykum (peace be upon you - to all the mu-mineen.)
I am a Muslim and most importantly a servant of Allah. I understand your perspective on this issue, however the moralitiy of your words are deeply depressing.

'These women, have stooped to the weakest, most depraved act a human can stoop to, suicide.'

This is a distinct contradiction, please try to understand that these woman transform into suicide-bombers because the international community are ignoring the situation or predicament they are in. Instead of countries like America and Britian, combating terrorism, they should approach the situation at a different angle, instead of resorting to more violence; the international community are just as worse as the terrorists; because of the US and terrorists innocent people are killed -and for what?

'How can anyone attain any of these attributes, if one wakes up in the morning, pondering a suicide mission for the sake of God and humanity?' in the Qur'an it says that those who die, in the name or cause of Allah are guareented Jannah (heaven), as they had full-believe in the existance of Allah. However many people, innovate this particular verse of the Qur'an to attract future - suicide bombers.

The Qur'an talks about such people; those who are hypocrites and innovate that which has not been written, for them is a punishment worser than the Kuffar (non-believers), for they to have denied existance of Allah, the Lord of the universe.

'And, when we pass on to the other dimension, through death, our passing should be to a place that has "no earthly desires" such as food, sex, pleasures of the flesh. It should be a place of knowledge, peace, light and love. What is the point of dying, if we are getting the same thing on the other side?' it says in the Qur'an that any earthly pleasures are forbidden in this world, as it is a test for the next. If one commits evil in this world, they to will dwell in evil in the hereafter (Akhirah).

Allah and Islam have no blame for terrorism because it is the actions of people, it just goes to show humanity's true nature - greed, power and wealth.
