Why do they do it?

“…The power of jihad as a motivating factor for a man like Bouhlel should not be underestimated.

In popular culture, the idea of the jihadi dying for the sake of the 72 virgins he will receive in the afterlife is a common one. While undoubtedly some are motivated by this vision, I think many jihadis are more driven by fear of their own sinfulness.

Amongst good deeds that Muslims can do, jihad is unique. Its special characteristics are described in the hadith of Sahih al-Bukhari.”

    “I think many jihadis are more driven by fear of their own sinfulness”.
    I completely agree, They commit all sins and indulge in haram pastimes which according to islamic law they will burn in Hell… But all they have to do is murder some infidels and presto, instant paradise.

  • Islam.

    Carry on.

    Its a printing error, its 72 raisins, not 72 virgins..
