Nuggets from “Judgment Day: Islam, Israel, and the Nations” by Dave Hunt

Islam has one thing in common with every other religion that separates them all from true Christianity: attempting to appease God with works and sacrifices. And for a Muslim, that even includes giving up one’s own life to gain Paradise. Whatever happens, it is up to the individual Muslim to live a good enough life and to make amends for any misdeeds in order to be acceptable to Allah. But Allah changes his mind and decides to send some to hell regardless of what they may think or do…

For most Muslims, martyrdom is the best hope for reaching Paradise – but Paradise is not sure even then. Abu Bakr, Muhammad’s first successor, received from Muhammad his personal promise of Paradise without martyrdom. Yet [he himself said] that he feared that he might be “the first one to enter [hell fire].” He was afraid that even if he had one foot inside Paradise, Allah might shove him out. Can a suicide bomber, then, really be certain of his destiny, when Abu Bakr was not? And on whose authority, if Abu Bakr had doubts in spite of Muhammad’s promise?

The disastrous fact is that the first thing the jihad “martyr” discovers after his suicide is that he is not in heaven but in hell (as his own conscience must have warned him) and that instead of being rewarded, he is being punished for the death and destruction he caused in this final act of his life. What a tragedy that so many are being deceived in this way.
