Suicide bombers have believed that they would get paradise as a reward for them. But Islamic clerics have divided in two opinions: allowed (halal) suicide bombing and prohibited (haram).
Suicide bombing is halal because of imbalance power between Palestinians and Israel. As founder of Hamas, Sheikh Ahmad Yassin said: “If we had fighting jets and missiles we will change our way of self defend in legitimate means.”
Islamic clerics who prohibited suicide bombing argued that the actors have killed themselves before killing their enemies. Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah Bin Baz has affirmed that suicide bombing isn’t fair due to Al-Quran An-Nisa article 29: “Don’t kill your self.”
Prophet Muhammad has also said: “Anyone who kills his self by a mean therefore he will be tortured by that mean in the end of the day.” Ibnu Taimiyah said suicide bombing is haram and the actor will be eternal in hell.
