Shaykh Al-Fawzan said, “Some people say these individuals [sucide bombers] are martyrs.
Theperson who kills himself is a martyr?!
The person who burns himself up [in a bomb explosion] is a martyr?!
As for the person who kills himself, Allah has threatened him with the hell-fire.
Allah the Exalted said, “And do not kill yourselves. Surely, Allah 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 Allah.” (Soorah An-Nisa 4:29)
Is the person who kills his Muslim brother, his Muslim sister, and the Muslim children; a martyr?!
This person is an aggressor, an oppressive transgressor.
How can an oppressive, transgressing aggressor be a martyr?!
A man came to the Messenger of Allah and said, “O Messenger of Allah, what should I do if a man comes wanting to take my wealth?”
He replied, “Don’t give him your wealth.”
He said, “What if he kills me?”
He replied, “You will be a martyr.”
He said, “What if I kill him?”
He replied, “He will be in the fire.” (Muslim 140)
He will be in the hell-fire. The person who oppresses the [Muslims], kills them, and violates them; if this person is killed he will be in the fire.
How can he be a martyr while he is in the hell-fire?”
