“Indeed, that which has occurred from suicide bombings and destruction in the city of ar-Riyaad and whatever was discovered as a result of that from weapons and explosives in Makkah and al-Madeenah in the earlier part of this year, 1424H, then it is all the end result of being misled by Satan and his beautification of excessiveness and extremism for those who were responsible for that. So these events that have occurred are from the most disgraceful of crimes and corruption in the earth. And what is more disgraceful is that Satan beautifies these events as Jihaad for the one who carries them out. So with which intellect and Religion can suicide, killing of Muslims and those under protection by treaties, terrorizing those under security, turning women into widows and children into orphans and the destruction of buildings along with whatever is inside them be considered Jihaad!?”
From the treatise, Bi Ayyi ’Aql wa Deen Yakoonat-Tafjeer wat-Tadmeer Jihaadan of al-’Allaamah ’Abdul-Muhsin al-’Abbaad, and translated by Maaz Qureshi.
This post contains material opposing and condemning extremism and terrorism which should hopefully make it clear to the non-Muslim and the Muslim that acts of suicide bombing and terrorism, in which the lives of innocent men, women and children (Muslim or non-Muslim) are indiscriminately taken, are not justified within orthodox Islam, whatever the excuse, “social justice”, oppression, tyranny or revenge.

4. Dawah Leaflets
Excerpt from leaflet above:
Terrorists kill Muslims and Non-Muslims indiscriminately
‘Indeed, that which has occurred from suicide bombings and destruction in the city of Riyadh and whatever was discovered as a result of that from weapons and explosives in Makkah and Madeenah in the earlier part of this year, 2003, then it is all the end result of being misled by Satan and his beautification of excessiveness and extremism for those who were responsible for that. So these events that have occurred are from the most disgraceful of crimes and corruption in the earth. And what is more disgraceful is that Satan beautifies these events as Jihaad for the one who carries them out. So with which intellect and Religion can suicide, killing of Muslims, and those under protection by treaties from amongst the non-Muslims, terrorising those living in safety, turning women into widows, and children into orphans, and the destruction of buildings along with whatever is inside them be considered Jihaad!?’ (Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin Al-Abbaad, Saudi Arabia)
So likewise the terrorist attacks of London, Madrid and other than them cannot be considered as Jihaad, and the Religion of Islaam is free from these evil acts and its perpetrators, even if the ones responsible claim to be Muslim and claim to be in support of Islaam and its people. Indeed the Religion of Islaam calls to the sole worship of the Creator and Sustainer, the Lord of the Heavens and earth, Allaah, the One who sent all of the Messengers from Noah through to Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad, as a mercy from Himself. So these Prophets were not sent to cause corruption and wreak havoc, but to call mankind to the worship of their Lord alone, without associating any partners with Him.
