The motivation behind terrorism including religious motivations for suicide bombings.(Self martyrdom)

slide3
Do suicide bombers have the right to take the lives of people for justified reasons, in relation to their culture and religion?
slide5

“For millions of Muslims living in the West, 9/11 prompted a crisis. With their faith suddenly under international scrutiny, the knee jerk reaction was to spring to the defensive. Orthodoxy suddenly became more appealing.”

As stated in the Qur’an, “If they resort to peace, so shall you, and put your trust in God.” 8:60-61.

slide11

QUR’AN 44:51-55

"Verily! The righteous will be in Paradise. Among Gardens and Springs; Dressed in fine silk and also in thick silk, facing each other, and We shall marry them to Houris (maidens) with wide, lovely eyes."
