Suicide bombings and missions.

Q. Since Allah says, ‘Do not cast yourselves, with your own hands, into destruction’ (Sura Al Baqarah (2:195)), are those who partake in suicide missions angering Allah? If it is a valid jihad, then should they not at least provide themselves some slight possibility of escaping alive?

A. Suicide bombings and missions are not permissible in Islam. As mentioned in the Holy Quran, Allah has commanded that one should not put himself into destruction.

And Allah knows best.
