Brother, forgive me but isn't there a verse in the Qur'an that instructs Muslims to keep battle horses ready so that the enemy feels intimidated? So wouldn't Muslim nations having strong armies be a deterrent to enemies attempting to attack and subdue us?

With all due to respect, this has become the go-to justification of us modern Muslims for our lack of emaan. The Quranic verses regarding preparation for battle talk about doing whatever you can to prepare against kuffar. It is not about spending billions to the point that the common man in the country starves to death, but you are able to acquire and then maintain nuclear weapons. This distinction is very important about how Allah commands us to prepare, because that in itself indicates what we are placing our emaan upon.

This is why I was talking about the shattering of "idols". The Muslims, as a whole need to be rid of this false sense of security that we feel because we have supposedly prepared with missiles and bombs, and then only can we start from scratch where our trust is placed solely on Allah. And since it is the Sunnah of Allah to use worldly asbaab to help us, He Himself will guide us towards those asbaab whatever they may be.

As long as we keep fooling ourselves that this kind of preparation for battle is what Allah wants, we'll keep on trusting the missiles, and tanks, and fighter jets.

But most of all we lack the one essential quality needed in Jihad. Not the absence of fear of death but rather a craving for death in the path of Allah. In essence, our preparation of battle is not intended to prepare us for a meeting with our Creator rather a preparation to stay in this dunya as long we can stretch it.

Even the ahadith regarding Mahdi and Islam's eventual dominance, aren't talking about some high tech battle with the kuffar. Rather the conquest of Constantinople would be through the Mahdi reciting the kalima.

The bomber may be thinking, Let us convert this country into a graveyard and let us rule over the graveyard.

May be, people will be alive, but their hearts will be dead, filled with hatred towards Islam. So a graveyard in religious perspective, then on whom the hudood will be implemented, on the dead hearts? Can implementation be sustained?

Brother, the first lady Israeli prime minister Golda Meir actually took lessons from the seerah to overcome the surrounding Arabs militarily. In an interview she said she read that when the prophet of Islam (pbuh) passed away, his household did not have the means to even light a lamp at night, but his house contained his battle paraphernalia. She said it was from the seerah to tolerate hunger but not compromise on the means of waging (defensive and offensive) war. She said this gave the Israelis the resolve to sacrifice everything to grow and maintain their military capability.

In our alam e asbaab, shouldn't we cherish whatever flawed systems the ummah has in place (such as government, industry and military) and work towards rectifying and improving them?

Come on, you are going to compare the lesson that a kafir took with how Muslims should perceive this dunya? Gathering asbaab works for the kuffar, since this is supposed to be their paradise. The Muslims cannot have their cake and eat it too. We cannot keep saying we trust Allah and then place all our trust in the same asbaab as the kuffar. We are going to get humiliated for this hypocrisy which is exactly what is happening to us in these times.

Also, another point to note that instead of understanding the Prophet's (saw) apathy for the world, the kafir chose to look at what little he possession he did leave behind. Is that the message we Muslims want to take from this as well?

Our preparation for battle should be about whatever we can gather. That would be the true placement of trust in solely Allah. Right now our preparation represents the mindset that the weaponry and the numbers of our armies will help us win wars.

Our flawed system should be rectified in a way that we don't start worshipping those same systems.

Success didn't come by numbers and weapons. Success came from Obedience!

We lack this obedience because we have put the reliance of success through other means.

Automatically you have passed the verdict/judgement onto one side in the least. For all we know, neither or both succeeded or failed.

We should not get into this as only Allah knows what was in the hearts!

Also, there are reports circulating that the attack may have been through a drone. So the bomber may still be alive, hence not shaheed. Only the people who came to offer their salah were shaheed.

The visitors never intended to die. Hundreds in hospitals never intended to get the present sufferings. Their intentions was to visit Masjid and bow before the lord, almighty.... Allah SWT.

I am heartened by the brothers' replies here that say we must not delve too deep in these matters, and not pass judgment too hastily. Beslan, Lal Masjid, Peshawar are similarly also all complex issues. Something as abhorrent as the cold blooded murder of innocent children and mosque going worshippers cannot be looked at in simple black and white.

Along similar reasoning, I'm sure other controversial topics discussed on this forum (and elsewhere) might likely also contain similar nuance and we should probably refrain from passing judgment too quickly, and leave the matter to Allah Taala.

May Allah Taala guide us all and help us navigate these important matters, and act in a manner that pleases Him. Ameen.

Yes, as you say, we should refrain from passing judgment too quickly, and leave the matter to Allah Taala.

The OP is asking which of the 2 were martyr. Meaning one is and the other isn't. As if we would know.

The point is, in this case. No one knows the fate of anyone of them.

Who knows if out of all of them, it was decreed for them all to die for something we don't know about, due to the qadr of Allah. Be it a shaheed or not.

One could've been killed by the will of Allah because in the future, they were going to create more harm to their families than good, so Allah had written this for him.

Have we not learnt anything from the story of Musa عليه السلام

Have we not learnt anything from the story of the companion who killed a man after he took the shahada in the battle field and how upset the Prophet (saw) became with the companion who was asked repeatedly if he saw what was in his heart?

During the battles of jamal and siffeen, the fallen on both sides were declared shaheed, because on both sides were pious individuals who fought for the sake of Allah Taala.

He is asking so he can satisfy or justify it to his community of non Muslims.
We are saying, these are matters of the unseen so leave it to Him alone

I thought the OP question was rhetorical, for the purpose of opening a discussion on a matter that is obviously very complex and probably confuses a lot of Muslims, especially the younger generations.

The general visitors are martyrs, no doubt at all.

But the bomber, he is a murderer of Muslims for no reasons..... why is he a martyr?
