Suicide Bombings are forbidden
By Sheikh Saalih Ibn Fawzan Al-Fawzan
Translated by Abdulilah Lahmami
Sheikh Saalih Ibn Fawzan Al-Fawzan explains, “Allaah says in the Qur’an “And do not kill yourselves (nor kill one another). Surely Allaah is Most Merciful to you. And whosoever does that out of aggression and injustice, We shall cast him into the Fire, and that is easy for Allaah.“[Soorah an-Nisaa: 29/30]…
So it is not allowed for a person to kill himself, rather one should protect himself with the utmost protection…As for purposely killing himself by suicide operations then this is not allowed. In the time of the Messenger P, in one of the battles, there was a brave man who was (supposedly) fighting for the sake of Allaah with the Messenger P. He was killed and the people praised him saying: “none of us fought courageously like him.” So the Prophet P said: “he is in the hellfire.” Someone had followed him and saw that after he was injured at the end, he placed the handle of his sword on the ground and raised its head upright then he put himself over it until it entered his chest and came out from his back and he died. This companion (who saw him) said the Messenger P spoke the truth. [Bukhaaree no. 3062, Muslim no.111]. So they knew that the Messenger P never spoke of his own accord. Why did he (the man) enter the hellfire with this action? Because he purposely killed himself and was not patient so it is not allowed for a person to kill himself.”
