You Are Going To ‘Paradise’ Direct If Kidnappers, Bandits Kill You— Islamic Cleric Tells Muslims

An Islamic cleric and deputy chief Imam of the National Mosque, Abuja, Professor Ibrahim Maqari has said that Islam does not permit Muslims to pay money as ransom to enemies they are at war with.

According to Dateline, Professor Maqari made the comment at this year’s Ramadan tafsir at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

He said it is in the context of that rule that kidnappers should not be paid ransom so as to starve them of the funds they could use to boost their arsenal and sustain their evil campaign.

"Since Allah (SWT) has forbidden the payment of money to an enemy who is at war with you, in order not to empower them to continue to fight you, then contributing money as ransom for the release of kidnapped persons, is haram (prohibited),” he said.

Quoting a Hadith (prophetic tradition), Mr Maqari narrated the story of a man who approached Prophet Muhammad, asking him what to do if someone tried to rob him of his money and the Prophet told him to resist the person.

The man then asked the Prophet “what if the person fights me, and the Prophet told him to fight back.”

“What if I kill him,” he asked, and the Prophet said, “He goes to hellfire.” He asked again, “What if he kills me?” and the prophet said, “you enter paradise.”

The Hadith, the deputy chief Imam emphasised, upholds the impermissibility of giving ransom to kidnappers.


He also explained that Islam’s code for discouraging criminality provides that material demands imposed as conditions by criminals are to be ignored, no matter what havoc the criminals threaten to unleash, if the demands are not met.

Refusing to meet the demands of kidnappers would inevitably turn them into losers who wasted their money to feed the captive, wasted their bullets in killing them and wasted their time, he asserted.

“But he (the criminal) has been made aware that the money is never going to be paid and the one who is killed (the victim) is going to paradise,” he said.

Maqari said applying the Islamic provisions can effectively address the challenges of kidnapping currently affecting the society.

“But as long as people will continue to give ransom to secure the release of their loved ones, the recipients of the money will continue to use it to acquire more arms that they will use to perpetrate their atrocity and promote it as a business,” he advised.

Another implication of submitting to kidnappers’ demands, he pointed out, is that the vice will be grow and be hard for security agents to handle.

“So the best way of stopping it, is for the criminal to know that if he kidnaps someone, he can choose to chop his body into pieces,” but he will not get what he wants.

He, therefore, advised Muslims that getting killed by kidnappers is a sure way of going to paradise.

If this episode and scenario is all the victim needs entering paradise, what about the crimes this victim had committed before his killing ?

And some human beings will believe this yeye statement ? Why will anyone even desire to live another life after this one ?

Anyone who kills or desires to be killed or does anything for the sake of living and enjoying a next life in paradise or heaven is a compound fool. Religionists are too dull abeg.

Dear people, instead of occupying your brain with what to do to live an "eternal life " or how you'd live and enjoy another life after this one, please concern yourself with making humanity great, living a peaceful and a happy life. Try to make life better for you and your loved ones. Radiate love any where you go to. Be polite and kind. Be humble and simple.

Organized Religions are scams for stupidly and massively greedy people and cowards. They lure you with the fake promise of an " eternal life" after death in a place where there are many mansions and in some religions they promise one thing that most men hardly resist : sex. They promise you sex with not just one woman but seven women and virgins for that matter. That's why many people do a lot of crazy things just to qualify for this promised eternal life. And when they perceive you're not moved by their silly offers they switch to using fear to make you live your life according to the dictates of their religion. They'll tell you about hellfire and how you'll burn forever in it if you don't join them. It's crazy how people believe this stories. Wake up people.
