Shaykh Al-Fawzaan said, “…They may even kill themselves. They blow themselves up and say that it is martyrdom.
How can a self-killer be a martyr when the messenger said that he is in the Fire?
Allah said, “Do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful. And whoever does that in aggression and injustice – then We will drive him into a Fire. And that, for Allah , is [always] easy.” (4:29-30)
The Prophet said in the authentic hadith: “The one who kills himself with poison will have it in his hand and drink it slowly and swallow it in hell.
The one who kills himself with an iron will have the iron in the hand and stab himself with it in hell.
The one who kills himself by throwing himself down a mountain will be thrown down into hell.” (Muslim 175)
A self-killer has done a major sin. How can he be a martyr?
How can one say that he is going to paradise when the Prophet said that he is going to the Fire?
Allah allowed martyrdom to be reached if one dies for His sake. THEY (MARTYRS) ARE KILLED.
They were killed (as Allah has said), “And never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead.” (3:169)
(Also he said), “And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah, “They are dead.” Rather, they are alive” (2:154)
The one who dies in jihad under the banner of the Muslims is a martyr and is killed by the enemy.
As for the person who takes his own life, he has done a great sin and risks ending up in the Fire.
When the Prophet was asked about the person who fights valiantly, courageously and so on and who from among them fights for Allah’s sake, He said, “The one who fights so that the word of Allah shall be the highest fights for Allah sake.”
The matter should be referred to the word of Allah and His messenger and not to deviant destroyers (modern day Khawarij callers who) brainwash people and give them these idiotic opinions…”
