No Martyrdom Bombing In Islam

One of the influential
Muslim "scholars" in Britain has issued a fatwa
banning terror attacks and bombings, insisting that
there is no justification for terror acts in the name
At a press conference attended by the London
officials, police, lawmakers and leaders of
organizations, Muhammad Tahir al-Qadri said that the
acts cause one to be out of his faith (Islam- ed.)
"They can't claim that their suicide bombings are
martyrdom operations and that they become the heroes
of the Muslim Ummah. No, they become heroes of
hellfire, and they are leading towards the hellfire,"
In his 600-page decree, the founder of the
internationally popular Minhaj-ul-Quran
movement said there was no place for martyrdom through
acts of terror and that such acts had nothing to do
The scholar ruled out any excuses or pretexts for
justifying acts of terror in supposed efforts to
"convert an evil into good."
"Terrorism is terrorism," Qadri insisted.
"Violence is violence and it has no place in Islamic
teaching and no justification can be provided for it,
or any kind of excuses or ifs or buts."
He reiterated that Islam is a religion of peace that
promotes beauty, "betterment," goodness and "negates
all form of mischief and strife."
A fatwa like this is not the first made by
“scholars” who in their lives have never personally
come down to the Jihad arena, they are fighting the
“extremists”, a slogan which is genuinely made up by
the West and meant for the Muslims who are sincerely
sacrificing their properties and lives to bring back
the honour and beauty of Islam.
Dr. Thahir Qadri, 59 years, is a renown ulama
for his knowledge of tasawwuf. He had written
around 350 books about Islam. His group, the
Minhaj-ul-Quran, was formed in Lahore, Pakistan
in 1980 as a non-political, non-sectarian, and non-
governmental organization (NGO). The Minhajul
Quran was formed for the purpose of reviving Al-Qur'an
and Sunnah in the modern and moderate life.
They think they are the guardians of the sunnah.
What sunnah? The sunnah of
Rasulullah SAW and the Sahabahs? Or the
sunnah of America and its allies?
They and their likes acknowledge the rulers who are
fighting Islam, are loyal to the Crusaders, as well as
acknowledge Israel and consider them as imams
who are righteous and wajib to be obeyed.
Thus, they consider the kafir forces or
Crusaders who have invaded the Muslim lands and
oppressed their inhabitants as forces that can give
security assurance, enter the lands under a
shar’ie pretext and for a shar’ie cause.
On the other hand, they consider the Mujahideen as
“out of Islam” or murtad and wajib
to be fought and killed. At the same time, they summon
us to befriend the Jews and Christians and make accord
Allah SWT says: "And why should ye not fightin the cause of Allah and of those who,
being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)?- Men,
women, and children, whose cry is: ‘Our
Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are
oppressors; and raise for us from thee one who will
protect; and raise for us from thee one who will
The word is “FIGHT”... Palestine and its weak and
oppressed people are not going to be liberated by
“practicing tasawwuf” or “making accords”
with the aggressors!
