Jakarta

There was a terrorist attack at a bus station in Jakarta, Indonesia. Reports are two terrorists exploded a bomb killing 3 Police officers and injuring at least 10 others.

“TWO suspected suicide bombers killed three Indonesian police officers and injured 10 people on Wednesday night in twin blasts near a bus station in the eastern part of the capital, police said.” – AC

“Indonesia’s anti-terrorism unit raided the home of a suspected suicide bomber on Thursday as authorities linked attacks that killed three police officers at a Jakarta bus station a day earlier to the Islamic State militant group.” – REUT

In no way is this attack Islamic. Much like with the terrorist attack in Manchester this is an act of terrorism. Suicide and the unjust killing of others is explicitly and unconditionally prohibited by the Qur’an.

Qur’an 4:29 O you who believe! Eat not up your property among yourselves unjustly except it be a trade amongst you, by mutual consent. And do not kill yourselves (nor kill one another). Surely, Allah is Most Merciful to you.

Arabic: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَأْكُلُواْ أَمْوَالَكُمْ بَيْنَكُمْ بِالْبَاطِلِ إِلاَّ أَن تَكُونَ تِجَارَةً عَن تَرَاضٍ مِّنكُمْ وَلاَ تَقْتُلُواْ أَنفُسَكُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ كَانَ بِكُمْ رَحِيمًا

Please keep the families of these police officers and those injured in your prayers, thoughts, and hearts. May Allah have mercy on the victims and their families and give them all peace in their hearts. Ameen
