Shaikh Abdul-Azīz ar-Rājihī (1) on Suicidal Acts of “Martyrdom”(2)

Question:

Many people talk about acts of “martyrdom” that are carried out in Palestine and other places. So what is the ruling of actions like these?

Answer:

Regarding such actions, I heard the honorable Shaykh Abdul-Azīz Ibn Bāz, may Allāh have mercy on him, pass a religious verdict that they are considered nothing but suicide and that it’s forbidden for a person to strap explosives to himself and then detonate them because this is suicide combined with murder.3
