“Do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden [to be killed] except by [legal] right.” (Al-Ana’am, 6: 151). “And do not kill yourselves. Surely, Allah is Most merciful to you.” [Surah Nisaa 4:29]. “Whoever throws himself down from a mountain and kills himself, he will be in the Fire of Hell throwing himself down for ever and ever..”
In Islam, suicide and suicide mass killing are two very different things.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, by detonating his suicide vest when he realized he was trapped in a dead end tunnel, did not commit a mass killing that would send him to paradise and 72 virgins. Quite the opposite: it leads to hell. He did not kill himself fighting the infidels. He killed himself running away from them. Which is not only a suicide, and Islam prohibits suicide, but a cowardly act in the fight against the enemy of Allah, which too is a sin, in Islam.
Suicide and suicide mass killing actually have nothing in common. Beside the fact that in both cases, a terrorist dies, suicide mass killing has a legal and permitted goal, and it’s to kill people who are seen as guilty by Islam, namely kuffars, infidels, Jews, Christians, unbelievers and secular.
All the pundits and islamo-lefties journalists mention that Islam forbid to kill innocent people. That is true. What they left untold is that Islam doesn’t forbid to kill guilty people.
Newsweek was the first to report that
U.S. forces entered the compound in Idlib’s Barisha village and that Baghdadi then killed himself by detonating a suicide vest”.
President Trump confirmed that “Baghdadi ran into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying”, and when he realized that he was trapped, he detonated his suicide vest (he killed three of his children that he took with him as human shields, but this is a non-story, Hamas does that daily in Gaza and as horrible it is, nobody cares anyway – show me the condemnations in the media to prove me wrong).
“Who cares if he ends up in hell,” you may ask, “this is where he belongs.”
You cannot be more wrong.
Not that he doesn’t deserve hell! God forbid, he deserves all the thousand shades of its delights. But you are like me, you think as a westerner, and that is only a small part of the story. And by the way, that’s why the mainstream media won’t insist on the fact that he committed suicide.
What matters here is that Muslims are very hurt by the way the leader they admire died.
It is not so much that he died like a coward, which is already very hard for them to swallow, but it’s excruciatingly painful for them to know that he died in a way that Islam condemns and Allah forbids: by committing suicide.
For that reason, because the media wants to keep it under the rug to avoid hurting and humiliating the Muslims, we must say it, repeat it and not forget it.
Reporting the facts is a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
