Let’s All Blow Ourselves Up!!!!

This is an awesome piece written by my awesome friend, Ahmed Khaled (A.K.)

This is an idea which has wormed its way into the minds of many non-Muslims worldwide and even a few Muslims. Why? It’s all thanks to these people:

I mean, what do you think when you see this pic? A Qu’ran in one and hand and a knife in the other? I’ll tell you: Islam is a violent religion.

People like the one in the photo actually believe that it’s cool to blow up places, killing hundreds of people, because maybe, just maybe, there might be a couple of them who are ‘infidels’ and harbor ill feelings for Islam.

How fucked up is that?

Suicide Bombing is 7aram, forbidden, in Islam. There is no doubt in my mind about that. Why? Because the first person you kill is, sadly, yourself. This is, therefore, suicide. Suicide is also (surprise surprise!) 7aram in Islam.

Killing 3000+ people by destroying the World Trade Center? Not cool. Plus, it was an event that only gave America more strength. It also, more or less, destroyed Islam’s public image.

I was even shocked to find one of my friends thought that suicide bombing was just another way of performing Jihad.

It is not. Anyone with half a brain cell could see that.

This topic was brought on by the tragic killing of 13 people, and the injuring of two dozen more, by Major Nidal Hassan in Fort Hood.

An American-born-Muslim-with-Palestinian-background Army Major, who was more or less motivated to do so by Anwar Al-Aulaqi, a Yemeni Imam who used to preach in a mosque frequented by Hassan. Anwar Al-Aulaqi is notorious for his support of Al-Qaeda’s terrorist actions.

Were the 13 victims of the shooting, American Army personnel? Yes. Were they going to be deployed to Iraq/Afghanistan where they’d kill Muslims? Maybe. Did they have to be killed in cold blood by their colleague? Fuck no.

Please comment your thoughts about this issue, which I believe is more important to us as Muslims than petty feuds over trivialities.
