Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen: The Suicide Bomber is Not A Martyr And Is In Hellfire


But as for what some people do regarding activities of suicide, tying explosives to themselves and then approaching Unbelievers and detonating them amongst them, then this is a case of suicide ­ and Allaah¹s refuge is sought. So whoever commits suicide then he will be consigned eternally to Hell-Fire, remaining there forever, as occurs in the hadeeth of the Prophet, sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam. (i.e., his, sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam, saying, " and whoever kills himself with an iron weapon, then the iron weapon will remain in his hand, and he will continuously stab himself in his belly with it in the Fire of Hell eternally, forever and ever." Reported by al-Bukhaaree, no. 5778 and Muslim, no. 109, in the Book of Eemaan.)

Because this person has killed himself and has not benefited Islaam. So if he kills himself along with ten, or a hundred, or two hundred other people, then Islaam will not benefit by that, since the people will not accept Islaam, contrary to the story of the boy. Rather it will probably just make the enemy more determined, and this action will provoke malice and bitterness in his heart to such an extent that he may seek to wreak havoc upon the Muslims.

This is what is found from the practice of the Jews with the people of Palestine ­ so when one of the Palestinian blows himself up and kills six or seven people, then in retaliation they take sixty or more. So this does not produce any benefit for the Muslims, and does not benefit those amongst whose ranks explosives are detonated.

So what we hold is that those people who perform these suicide (bombings) have wrongfully committed suicide, and that this necessitates entry into Hell-Fire, and Allaah¹s refuge is sought and that this person is not a martyr (shaheed). However if a person has done this based upon misinterpretation, thinking that it is permissible, then we hope that he will be saved from sin, but as for martyrdom being written for him, then no, since he has not taken the path of martyrdom. But whoever performs ijtihaad and errs will receive a single reward (if he is a person qualified to make ijtihaad)."

(End of the Shaikh's words)


Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.

peace be upon you

I respectfully disagree.  Only Allah know the intention of people.  I refuse to label these people with the same term used in main stream media , i.e., suicide bombers.  Only when you walk in one's shoe are you allowed to judge. 

The people of palestine are under occupation.  They have been occupied for 60 years.  You need to remember this.  They are killed by air raids that drop bombs on them. 

Just wondering, is this a fatwa that you pasted?  I recently heard other people like sh. swaidan say something similar.  i do disagree with that as well, because he just says it is wrong without really saying anything about IDF buldozing people's homes and orchards.  it is easy to cast judgement bro. 

I really hope this thread does not get locked.

Asalamualaikum wrt honorable sister,


  Yes, this is the Fatwa by one of the greatest Shaikhs of the 20th Century, Shaikh Ibn Uthaymeen, may Allah have mercy on him.


Thank you for expressing your feelings.Undoubtedly, many Muslims also share the same feelings of injustice as you do.  But we must always remember that Allah will punish the evildoers in the aakhirah.  The Hell Fire is enough for them.  This dunya is just a test, and we must abide by the Laws of Allah in order to prosper.


It is by following the Ulema and the Shariah that we will be successful.  Those parties who have done this type of bombing, and most of the them are communist or nationalist parties, are going against the Ulema, such as the eminents Shaykh Ibn Baz, Ibn Uthaymeen, Ibn Jabreen, Albaani, Fawzaan, and the other great Ulema of this age.  They are using logic instead of following the Quran.

The Quran says that suicide is forbidden.  We should defend our selves with what is right and obedient to Allah.  As the great Khalifah Umar said to his army:

"Fear Allah!  It is by the Taqwa of Allah that you will gain victory.  For if you leave the fear of Allah, than you and your enemy will be the same in the sight of Allah, and they will certainly gain victory over you by their great numbers."


Thus it is in fearing Allah, and following the Ulema and the Shariah that we will find victory, not by disobeying Allah and following our own whims and desires, no matter how logicial it may sound.


As one righteous Muslim said, when he was told "They kill our women and children, so whay shouldn't we?"

He replied: "They are not our teachers."



Finally, the Ulema have pointed out that there is no Maslaha, or benefit in these actions, as they are used by the enemies of Islam to demonize us and our religion.


And Success is with Allah.


And Allah knows best.


Shaykh Abdurahman.

Assalamualaikum warahmatullah,

We have to bear in mind that we did not label these methods as "suicide", rather the neo-orientalists termed that actions themselves. There is debate as to whether this form of fighting constitutes to suicide or not, and rather than delving it into it here, it is an issue for the ulema to deal with.

I would be reluctant to agree that such an action is "haram" so early purely based on the above problem.

There is also the viewpoint of some scholars that fighting, regardless of how it is, is in a way a form of "suicide" since you know you may die as a result, yet you do it for the sake of Allah and it is accepted as martyrdom.

Wallahu alim , may allah provide ease for our brothers and sisters in wartorn countries ameen.

Asalamualaikum wrt wb,


All praise be to Allah.


You are right brother, this is not an issue for common people to speculate on, since it has monumental ramifications on the Ummah.  That is why I quoted one of the most trustworthy scholars of this Ummah on this issue, Shaykh Ibn Uthaimeen, who said that the suicide bomber is in the Hell-fire and is not a martyr.  Unfortunately, many people decide to make their own 'ijtihaad in this day and age, and it has led to a lot of fitna in this Ummah.

The scholars say a suicide bomber might be committing at least five crimes according to Islamic law, namely killing civilians, mutilating their bodies, violating the trust of civilians, committing suicide and destroying civilian objects or properties.


Shaykh Ibn Fawzan said:


Regarding suicide bombings



Question: Are suicide operations (bombings) permissible? And are there (any) conditions for the acceptability of these actions?

Response: Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) says:

{And do not kill yourselves. Surely, Allaah is Most Merciful to you. And whoever commits that through aggression and injustice, We shall cast him into the Fire, and that is easy for Allaah}, [Soorah an-Nisaa, Aayaat 29-30]

So, it is not permissible for a person to kill himself, rather, he must protect himself in the full meaning of the word. And this does not prevent him from killing in the Path of Allaah and making jihaad in the Path of Allaah, and if he is open to being killed and martyred (therein) then that is good.

However, if he opens himself to being killed (in other than the Path of Allaah) then this is not permissible.

In the time of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam), one of the brave (fighters) was fighting alongside the Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and then he was killed. So the (other) companions said:

((None of us fought as courageously as so-and-so))

So, the Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said:

((He is in the Fire (of Hell)))

...and that was after he was injured and before he died. And this (matter) was difficult for the companions (to grasp). So one of the men followed the injured man and saw him place a sword on the ground – raising its blade and then impaled himself upon the blade, entering his chest and dying (as a result).

So this man (returned) and said:

((The Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) has spoken the truth))

... and they knew the Messenger never spoke from his whims and desires.

(So) why did he enter the Fire having done this action? Because he killed himself and was not patient (at what had befallen him); so it is not permissible for a man to kill himself.

Shaykh Ibn Fowzaan
al-Amaliyaat al-Istish.haadiyah – suwaruhaa wa ahkaamuhaa – Page 85




Shaykh Abdurahman Sudais said:

Makkah Imam Urges Muslims to Shun Terror

As millions of faithful marked 'Eed al-Adhaa yesterday, Muslims were warned against heeding militant calls to wage terrorist attacks in the name of Islam.

The warning came, amid a surge in militant attacks in Muslim countries and beyond, from Sheikh Abdulrahman Al-Sudais, imam of the Grand Mosque in Makkah, while addressing Haj pilgrims in a customary 'Eed sermon. The imam also advised Islamic scholars to preach moderation to confront this “rotten” phenomenon.

“Islam is the religion of moderation. There is no room for extremism in Islam,” he said.

He called on Muslims to “protect non-Muslims in the Kingdom and not to attack them in the country or anywhere. Islam is a religion of peace that abhors attack on innocents.” Militants were using misguided interpretations of Islam to justify violence, he added.

“Because Muslims have strayed from moderation, we are now suffering from this dangerous phenomenon of branding people infidels and inciting Muslims to rise against their leaders to cause instability,” Al-Sudais said.

“The reason for this is a delinquent and void interpretation of Islam based on ignorance...faith does not mean killing Muslims or non-Muslims who live among us, it does not mean shedding blood, terrorizing or sending body parts flying.”

Al-Sudais warned that extremism would ruin the Muslim nation, adding: “This phenomenon has expanded so much that scholars must confront it with concrete proof from Islam to protect our youth from its stench and rottenness.”

He added: “One of the main issues that needs to be tackled in principle is reform”. He criticized dissident Saad Al-Faqeeh who is calling to rebel against the government in order to create disunity among the people. He described him as a reckless adventurer who is obsessed with publicity.





And Allah knows better.

Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.

salam

I think the saudi shaikhs (imams salih ibn fawzan and abdelrahman sudais) were referring to recent attacks in saudi where some men bombed residential and other sites in saudi.


this cannot be taken as a blanket fatwa for palestinians as well.  with all due respect to you imam abderahman, shaikh ibn uthaimien died about 8 or 9 years ago and his fatwa is not dated.  he might have had different insight on the situation now.  palestinian shaikhs are aware of the situation in their land and don't hold the same view.  their perspective is different and more in touch with what's happening.  so it is clear that the ulema are not all agreed on this issue.

take care
wassalam
