In my opinion this Islamic madman was nothing more than a scam artist.
Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi sold himself to the Islamic world as their savior. And they all bought in to it and will now try to distance themselves from his legacy of the failed caliphate. But it will not clear the follows of their hidden intentions being exposed for their reality. The pursuit of world domination!
Apparently this “religious scholar” as the Washington Post labeled him, Didn’t read his own guidebooks! Imagine that! What it does show is that he was just another homicidal maniac that hid under the veil of Islam. And those that supported his madness casts a large amount of doubt as to the sincerity of being true Muslims! He died committing cardinal sins of Islam. Let’s see who steps up to pontificate him.
Suicide – Islam, as with other Abrahamic religions, views suicide as one of the greatest sins and utterly detrimental to one’s spiritual journey. The Islamic view is that life and death are given by God. Life is sacred, and a gift from God; and it is only God, and not the human beings, who has the right to take it back. Thus willful taking of one’s own life is considered a major sin in Islam. Committing suicide to save oneself from suffering is discouraged. Islam teaches that in the face of hardship, one should not directly pray for death. Instead, one should say: “Oh Allah! Let me live as long as life is good for me, and let me die if death is good for me.” Euthanasia is considered one form of suicide and has the same ruling as that of suicide. Unjust killing of any human being is one of the most heinous and the cardinal sins in Islam. (Wikipedia)
“And do not kill yourselves. Surely, God is Most Merciful to you.” (Quran 4:29)
“And do not throw yourselves in destruction.” (Quran 2:195)
Say: “Come, I will rehearse what God hath (really) prohibited you from”: Join not anything as equal with Him; be good to your parents; kill not your children on a plea of want;- We provide sustenance for you and for them;- come not nigh to shameful deeds. Whether open or secret; take not life, which God hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom. (Qur’an 6:151)
“If a man kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein (For ever): And the wrath and the curse of God are upon him, and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him.” (4:93)
“He who commits suicide by throttling shall keep on throttling himself in the Hell Fire (forever) and he who commits suicide by stabbing himself shall keep on stabbing himself in the Hell-Fire.” (Bukhari, Janaiz 84)
