I don't like the title of this post, but I couldn't think of a better phrasing.

While studying the Quran today, I read 2 verses that struck me very hard.
Loading Qur'aan Verse

With those 2 verses in mind, how are Muslims ever convinced to don a suicide vest and believe they will become martyrs?

It (to me) seems that there are some very evil people that prey on the under educated Muslims, especially the youth.

How can we ever hope to stop this misguided behavior?

This is a serious question.

Does anyone have any idea on how to contact and educate such people within their respective countries?

As-salamu 'alaykum Sister,
I agree with everything you say.
The problem though is that they're obviously being misled. I'm just hoping there is some way to reach out to these people and offer them a correct viewpoint.
I truly have no idea if this can be done, nor how to do it.

The issue is not education, its conspirational mindset. Certain "Muslims" choose to believe certain things...You & I are both of a certain background and YET there are many on this forum who know about certain sectors of American better then both of us.

This isn't an education issue.

I guess I can only say that I'm always hoping to find ways to change the world in a positive direction.
Overly optimistic or ever hopeful? I don't know.
I sound like a Miss America beauty contestant.
What do you want? World peace.

Christian Fundamentalists think the same way. I went to get my driving licence renewed few years ago and the dude (State Employee) starts talking to me about Obama (the devil) is in the bible and goes into a big long winded explanation about 666.

I needed my  licence so I was like whatever...

There is a lot of similarities between Evangelicals and Muslims, in fact many Muslims quote (right wing nutjobs) and their YouTube channels, they actually pick up much of their stuff from evangelicals.

Infowars and Alex Jones is extremely popular among Muslims. On Jews, many Muslims quote David Duke and he was the staple "expert" on Muslim forums after 9/11.

Slightly intellectual Muslims quote Noam Chomsky

List goes on and on...

Travel to a Muslim country and you will hear all kinds of wild theories that there are human sacrifices in US military etc. The simplest explanation that a "professional military force" obeys a political directive and orders is not good enough :)

Spend time with Evangelicals or on their forums and it is equally wild!

Frustration

Muslim world is in disarray, leadership incompetent and societies corrupt to the bone. Muslim Institutes and Muslim Scholars have FAILED to provide leadership and guidance to the masses.

Instead of focussing on these issues and improving, a narrative is built up that America is "Shaytaan" and every American is plotting to harm Islam and Muslims. Don't get me wrong the CIA does plan to ensure that Islam does not rise up and Muslims do not unite but majority of the issues which Muslims face are entirely the fault of Muslims.

Most Americans are FED-UP of Middle-East and don't want wars in Afghanistan or Middle-East and just want to concentrate on their own issues. 

Examples:

When it floods in Pakistan, properties get destroyed and lives are lost BECAUSE poor people are allowed to live right dead smack in the middle of flood plains. Drive in Punjab and you will see people living in the middle of (dried) river beds and when the floods come they die, its a planning issue.

When Earthquake comes, buildings collapse structure are not built correctly and due to corruption substandard material is used.

So when Pakistan gets floods and Earthquakes who gets the blame for these massive casualties? What do "Intellectual Muslims" talk about?

H-A-R-P

Average Pakistani DOES NOT have the sense to throw their garbage properly but he/she will definitely know about the secret US weapon which causes weather changes and earthquakes and they know that US Army has it deployed in Afghanistan to cause these things in Pakistan 

www.globalresearch.ca/haarp-secret-weapon-used-for-weathe...

Christian Evangelicals say the EXACTLY the same about Hurricanes in America!

Also, when such natural events aren't really natural events but man-made, then? it's known for them to do this.


Regardless of what the authorities plan and don't plan.

And certain Muslims receive revelation from Allah Ta'ala that the disaster is not natural but US military weapon!

Regardless of how the calamity reaches you, its your turning to Allah Ta'ala & reaction to save lives which matters

  1. Allah Ta'ala has power to curtail, diminish or decrease whether it is natural or US weapon so TURN to Allah Ta'ala
  2. Humans are meant to provide emergency response and learn lessons

Rampant Corruption & gross Incompetence is not the fault of CIA.

CIA does not make Ulama in India fight each other (in courts) while the millions of Indian Muslims are suffering..I am sure that CIA tries but at the end of the end it is Ulama who take each other to court.

CIA or Mossad or RAW or whatever tries but it is people who do.
