Benazir Bhutto Assasinated

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan, Dec 27 (Reuters) Former prime minister Benazir Bhutto was killed in a gun and bomb attack after a rally in Rawalpindi. Dawn News

Assassination of Benazir Bhutto is definitely a great blow to any hope for any kind of peace and stability in Pakistan. Killing, murdering and suicide attacks are heinous crimes no matter who the victim, be it innocent civilians or political leaders.

Majority of the people, non-muslims as well as enlightened Muslims are under the impression that practicing Muslims will be happy with such a thing or that they promote or support such terrorist activities. Already accusations are being hurled that it was done by some Islamist Jihadist etc etc…

Who ever the assassin, I just want to present Quranic Ayats and saying of Prophet Muhammad (saw) so you can see for your self what Islam has to say about murdering.

“…if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder(Qisas), or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.”(Quran 5:32)

The Prophet said, “The biggest of Al-Kaba’ir (the great sins) are (1) to join others as partners in worship with Allah, (2) to murder a human being, (3) to be undutiful to one’s parents (4) and to make a false statement,” or said, “to give a false witness.”(Bukhari 83 : Hadith 10)

The Prophet said, “No human being is killed unjustly, but a part of responsibility for the crime is laid on the first son of Adam who invented the tradition of killing (murdering) on the earth. (It is said that he was Qabil).(Bukhari 83:6)

Allah’s Apostles said, “When a slave (of Allah) commits illegal sexual intercourse, he is not a believer at the time of committing it; and if he steals, he is not a believer at the time of stealing; and if he drinks an alcoholic drink, when he is not a believer at the time of drinking it; and he is not a believer when he commits a murder,” ‘Ikrima said: I asked Ibn Abbas, “How is faith taken away from him?” He said, Like this,” by clasping his hands and then separating them, and added, “But if he repents, faith returns to him like this, by clasping his hands again.(Bukhari 82:800)

The last hadith makes it very very clear that suicide bombing can never ever be accepted in Islam.

When the bomber is exploding the bomb, at that moment he is killing other human beings and according to the hadith the faith is taken away from him. If at this time he is killed himself.. how can he ever enter paradise or be considered a martyr or a jihadi when he died without faith!!??

May Allah forgive her, may Allah have mercy on all of us and on our country Pakistan.Ameen


Update: Benazir died from gunshots, not suicide bombing! Benazir Bhutoo was in her car returning back, when she suddenly came out of the sun roof of her car to wave to the crowd, there were three gun shots and she was hit, she fell down and then the bomb exploded. This description was given by John Moore, a photographer who was just 20 yards away from Benazir and taking her pics. See his photographs right before and after her assassination here

The assassin must have been an expert hit man to have shot her straight in the head and neck.

  1. Assalam-o-Alaiakum

    It is with great sorrow that Benezir Bhutto was assassinated.
    Human life is more important than anything in this world.

    Where are we going?
    Don’t you think , This Is Madness?

    May Allah Protect All of us.

    Allah Hafiz,

  2. Killings in Pakistan or Afghanistan are not new to the world. Do our Ulemas interested in teaching Islam to the tribal community in this region? I believe their efforts are not successful yet. We all say is Islam means Peace and how come the traditional intolerance of the tribalism make an upper hand in this region?

  3. I am stunned by this devastation to Pakistan and the world. I am a westerner and do not believe all Muslims are are of one mind in support of intolerance and murder. The nature of people is manifest in the religions they embrace. If they harbor hate, no religion, without Faith will protect them from its evil. The lust for power and greed killed Bhutto, not Islam. All caring westerners are saddened by this loss.

  4. indeed it’s terrible what happened to Benazir Bhutto… i shudder to think what she must be going through in the grave… her death was shocking as she was so very much alive in the country what with her grand entry, her grand promises granting hope, and the multitude of supporters surrounding her and all. i bet her imminent death was the last thing on her mind as she stood up in her car to wave to the crowd. may Allaah grant her mercy if she deserves it.
    by the way, i’ve read a hadeeth in wich the gist is that no nation over which a woman is appointed will ever prosper. i’m sure you must have read it too. do you think this would have applied to Benazir Bhutto too? it’s something that’s puzzled me, since the woman seemed to have great ideals and was the hope for many.

  5. Thank you for steering us to this report.

  6. First of all who told evry body it did by islamic mujahideen.
    Secondly is this islamic discussion why u are giving such important to islams enimies.
    Thirdly pray Nafil for shukar to Almighty Allah as suchj type satan gone to hell.
    I want give Mubarakbaad to evry muslim as Allah listen muslims Duas against those who did toheen of shair-Allah i.e Masjid .
    She when alived looted country evry body knows with her husband and party member.
    After death she is reponsible for all destruction int the country.
    Now nobody blaming ghundaas of this corrupt party but blaming ulemas evry time ,i dont know that, u all are educated people and discussing on these type of leaders.
    PL wake up, dont discuss as on media every body discuss by hiding truth just ignoring all the past.

  7. Asif Zardari had his wife assassinated at the cost of the already dazed Govt. He is the one who’ll be benefitting from her death the most. The Bhutto dynasty shall hopefully end here. We’ve been taught “As you sow so shall you reap.”….. She didn’t get as terrible a death as she had planned and executed for others. Its a chain of assassinations that will carry on till cruelty and personal interests are the top agendas of politicians.

    Anyways, long discussion, gotta sign off here.
