As Muslims, most of us are well aware that the whole deal of a Muslim getting 72 virgins after an act of suicide is a vile propaganda and a myth. Today I stumbled upon this interesting article that goes about debunking this myth.
It is paramount that this lie is shattered, as I have heard it being stated as a fact in more discussions than I care to remember.
The bottom line is that suicide is strictly condemned against and punishable in Islam and those people who partake in it (as a form of terrorism) are usually in a very vulnerable emotional state. These people are then exploited and manipulated by others who use this act to pursue their agenda.
