Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin Al-Ubaykaan said, “It is not allowed for the Muslim to be delighted [with terrorist attacks]. Rejoicing can only be in something that is legislated, and rejoicing in a sin is forbidden.
Also, the statement of the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi was sallam, in which he said, “Whoever amongst you sees an evil then let him change it with his hand. If he is not able, then let him change it with his tongue. If he is not able, then let him hate it with his heart and this is the lowest level of eemaan.” [Collected by Muslim]
In one narration: “There is not a mustard seed of eemaan after that.”
So the one who doesn’t hate the evil in his heart doesn’t have a mustard seed of eemaan in his heart as mentioned in this hadeeth; this is the reward that has been legislated for him.
So what is the state of the one who is happy [with these evil and atrocious acts]?!”
