SAY NO TO TERRORISM
March 19th, 2009 by Dr. Shabbir
Dear friends, Peace & Blessings!
Occasionally, some N2Is call me and assert: “You are a Muslim scholar but you criticize Islam and Muslims. You denounce suicide bombing. Isn’t it the gateway to Paradise? Is not a suicide bomber a sure martyr?”
Answer: If you read my books and study this website carefully, you will agree that we only criticize the Islam distorted by your “Imams”, the man-made barbaric “Shari’ah” and the harmful actions of the so-called Muslims.
Please give me a reference from the Qur’an showing that suicide bombing is the gateway to Paradise. Bring your evidence if you are truthful. (2:111, 27:64)
If you can bring one verse supporting random explosions or suicide bombing, or even a Hadith, please let me know. Now reflect on these verses: 2:190-191, 5:2, 5:8, 5:32, 13:17, 41:34.
You will agree that random explosions and suicide bombing is only a sure GATEWAY to Hell.
You know that Prophet Muhammad (S) and his companions had to fight many battles, all in self-defense. Not a SINGLE NON-COMBATANT, a woman, a child was harmed at all.
A western philosopher has said, “Aggression by the strong is war, aggression by the weak is terrorism.”
Sounds convincing but I humbly disagree. Weakness in itself is a crime. The weak must organize, educate, fulfill human rights, unite, develop science and technology and thus become strong. Strength is a great deterrent. If still attacked, then defend against the unjust aggression. There can be no excuse for harming the innocent.
