Another Fatwa question for the Imam

Q: Salaam aleikum. When a Muslim soldier on a mission to kill the hated Jewish virus gets killed by his own bomb going off prematurely, does he still get his 70 virgins in Heaven?

A: Of course. Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.

GAZA - A Hamas terrorist who was killed overnight in the southern Gaza town of Rafah died from bomb shrapnel and not from gunfire, Palestinian sources said, contradicting earlier reports that said soldiers had shot the man.

According to the sources, the killed Palestinian is 22-year-old Ahmed Marchum. Eyewitnesses said Marchum stood at the edge of the Rafah refugee camp when a blast was heard, apparently an explosive device that went off, followed by shooting from the direction of IDF forces.

A Hamas source said Marchum was on a “Jihad mission” at the time of the incident."

It's the thought that counts.
