Where do suicide bombers go?

Posted: February 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

I emailed this question to Dr. Omar Zaid, my new friend, “Where do suicide bombers go after they blow themselves up?”

His answer: “According to traditional eschatology, they are
abused in their graves until judgment day, at which time they are
publicly humiliated for the fools they are and then sent straight to
hell for a kind of purgatory lik term (40,000 earth years), after
which they are released to one of the lower realms of heavenly reward
for at least believing in a non-anthropomorphic Creator without any
human relatives or partners.”

I told him that his response should be made available EVERYWHERE in the material and non-material universe.
Dr. Zaid is an MD and a Research Fellow at the prestigious International Institute of Islamic Thought and Civilization. ISTAC is a research and postgraduate institution of the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) offering master and doctoral degrees in Islamic and other civilizations; philosophy, ethics and contemporary issues; Islamic spiritual culture and contemporary society; Muslim world issues; and their respective sub-areas. The institute provides a unique opportunity to study with Muslim scholars from all over the world.

He provided the following citations:

On Suicide: from Huda, About.com Guide

There are a few quite specific sanctions expressed in the Quraan
against self-killing. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) also assigns suicide
to the lower levels of Hell.
Allah says explicitly in the Quraan,
“And do not kill yourselves. Surely, Allah is Most Merciful to you”.
(Surah An-Nisa Verse 29)
In another verse of the Quraan, Allah says:
“And do not throw yourselves in destruction”. (Surah Al-Baqarah Verse 195)

* Suicide is forbidden. “O ye who believe!… [do not] kill
yourselves, for truly Allah has been to you Most Merciful. If any do
that in rancour and injustice, soon shall We cast him into the
Fire…” (Qur’an 4:29-30).

* The taking of life is allowed only by way of justice (i.e. the
death penalty for murder), but even then, forgiveness is better. “Nor
take life – which Allah has made sacred – except for just cause…”
(17:33).

* In pre-Islamic Arabia, retaliation and mass murder was
commonplace. If someone was killed, the victim’s tribe would
retaliate against the murderer’s entire tribe. This practice was
directly forbidden in the Qur’an (2:178-179). Following this
statement of law, the Qur’an says, “After this, whoever exceeds the
limits shall be in grave chastisement” (2:178). No matter what wrong
we perceive as being done against us, we may not lash out against an
entire population of people.

* The Qur’an admonishes those who oppress others and transgress
beyond the bounds of what is right and just. “The blame is only
against those who oppress men with wrongdoing and insolently
transgress beyond bounds through the land, defying right and justice.
For such there will be a chastisement grievous (in the Hereafter)”
(42:42).

* Harming innocent bystanders, even in times of war, was forbidden
by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). This includes women,
children, noncombatant bystanders, and even trees and crops. Nothing
is to be harmed unless the person or thing is actively engaged in an
assault against Muslims.

Here’s just a few about the murder of innocents, etc.

“Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress
limits; for God loveth not transgressors. (The Noble Quran, 2:190)”

“But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline
towards peace, and trust in God: for He is One that heareth and
knoweth (all things). (The Noble Quran, 8:61)”

Dr. Zaid’s latest work The Hand of Iblis—a study of evil. (Iblis is the devil in Islam)has drawn raves.
Dr. Zaid is both fair and brutally honest.
Dr. Mohamed Abdel Kader Hatem, Former Prime Minister of Egypt (Mar. 2010)
Brilliant! I haven’t read such a powerful combination of ideas and studies in years. o,
Correspondent and Critic (Mar. 2010, re: The Hand of Iblis)
Dr. Zaid’s Hand of Iblis is filled with extraordinary facts and exceptional analysis.
Prof. Ibrahim Abu-Rabi in 2009; internationally known scholar and former editor of
The Muslim World who presently holds the Edmonton Council of Muslim Communities’ Chair in Islamic Studies, University of Alberta, Canada.
The Hand of Iblis is finely sifted and mercilessly to the point. The author unveils the present organizational structure and methodologies of secret societies worldwide. Substantiated with documents, inside information, iconographic and archeological proofs along with excellent analysis; Dr. Zaid weaves an extremely detailed tapestry and accurate account of the occult interference in the history of mankind―inclusive of respected historical figures… Dedicated to God‘s Wisdom and Tawhid, I laud the author‘s presentation of a genuinely evenhanded academic thoroughness; one that does not exclude the Divine Revelation. I can say no more than this: ‘Bravo Dr. Zaid’.
Dr. Franz Josef (Ysusf) von Hofler, Ph.D., Islamic and Other Civilizations, ISTAC
I now understand why for thirty years my best ideas and efforts have been blocked by my superiors. It is time to retire and build an ark.
The late Haji Mohd. Taufek Sahran, Dir. of Hikmah, Kuching, E. Malaysia, (2005)
Dr. Omar is the most un-politically correct writer I know. His relentless pursuit of truth is unsparing. That is why we need him and more like him.
Prof. Dr. Hassan EL-Nagar; African, English, Arabic & Comparative Literature (ISTAC)
