UCMINISTRIES: I have to admit the following article has shocked me.  It’s absolutly heart wrenching     Bright young women full of joy at her wedding, slowly progresses to someone who kisses her daughter good-bye and then kills herself at a clerics home.  What makes someone so angry and so hateful that death murder and killing is so much comfortable than living?  When people say that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance such instances prove otherwise.  Some would say that this is not reflected in the Koran but the work of some extremist.  I would say this is exactly what Islam is about. 

But when the forbidden months are past, then fightand slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.  Qur’an:9:5

Fight the unbelievers around you, and let them find harshness in you Qur’an:9:123

I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle Qur’an:8:12

Aminat Kurbanova, 29, of Dagestan, seen smiling on wedding day in 2003

Brought up as an Orthodox Christian and met husband at drama college

But she converted to Islam in 2007 and blew herself up three months ago

Brother-in-law introduced her to Islam but later died; as did her husband

She was Brought up as an Orthodox Christian by her mother, Aminat Kurbanova looked a picture of happiness at her wedding nine years ago – marrying the man with whom she had fallen in love at drama school.

Once a stage actress, the 29-year-old mother had transformed into a Muslim suicide bomber. The blast shocked Russia but her mother Vera Saprighina insists she was ‘a kind person, not a monster’Kurbanova was brought up in Makhachkala, Dagestan, and gained top marks at the city’s arts and drama college – where she met her future husband Marat Kurbanov, reported the Sunday Times.

The couple married in 2003 and she gave birth to a daughter, Malika, two years later. In 2006 the couple were introduced to Islam by Marat’s brother Rustam – and Kurbanov converted a year later

She said she had finally found the right religion for her,’ her mother Vera Saprighina told the Sunday Times. ‘Before long, both left the theatre because dancing and acting are considered un-Islamic.’

But Rustam was killed in a police house raid on suspected militants in 2008. It shocked the couple. Marat left home, never to come back, and is thought to have joined militants to avenge the death

However 12 months later, Marat also died when police opened fire on a car that did not stop at a checkpoint – and Kurbanova ‘often said she wished she had died with him’, Ms Saprighina stated.

Then Marat’s other brother Ali, a sportsman living in Moscow, vanished on holiday in Dagestan after being allegedly killed by police. Therefore by this stage, both of Marat’s brothers were dead – along with him.

Kurbanova started to earn money as an Islamic dress seamstress and became more religious. She began to be watched by security services, who allegedly searched her flat and questioned her after the death of her husband.

She later married the best man at her wedding, Timur Kurbamagomedov, but this was short-lived – and she left a note for her mother in March saying she was worried about being tortured.

Kurbanova walked into the home of Sheikh Said Atsayev, 74, after kissing her daughter goodbye and blew herself up with a steel-bolt bomb, killing seven others – including the cleric himself and a 12-year-old boy who was there with his father.

Her relatives tried to keep the news from Malika, but she overheard at school that ‘your mum’s a suicide bomber’ and saw her mother’s severed head on TV, reported the Sunday Times.

At least 12 religious leaders have been killed over the last two years in Dagestan – allegedly by militants angry that they are too friendly with the authorities. Atsayev could have been targeted because he spoke against violent Islam.

Kurbanova’s family said Malika often asks questions about her late parents and wants to know ‘when she will join them up there in the sky’.



This should disturb us enough to question how a bright young women.  Whose happiness is expressed at her wedding becomes this suicidal maniac who is bent on killing and being killed.  What makes this so insane is that she decides to kill fellow Moslems simply because they were considered too moderate.  So they were not even so called infidels but other Moslems. 

I have a good friend on facebook who has Moslems friends.  I like the person and he claims to be a Christian.  Yet I have seen a radicalization going on in his life.  When you debate with Moslems they will often reply to an issue in what is almost like a prewritten script.  Same answer to the same questions.  This dear friend is beginning to use the same Moslems arguments.  When he is pinned down he reverts to being a Christian again.  Do I think he is being radicalized, absolutely?

2 Cor 6: 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness

I have no doubt that this dear woman if asked at her wedding day are you prepared to strap a suicide vest and kill people especially a 12 year old.  She would have been shocked, and outraged.  Words such as “NEVER EVER,” might have been vocalized.  Yet in a short time this outraged women did indeed strap a bomb to kill others.

Scripture is clear be not unequally yoked with unbelievers.  Her relationship to her husband and their relationship to his brothers who were Moslems brought about that change.  There is an old saying if you choose to fly with the crows there is every chance you will be shot with them. This poor women choose to become something that even her own mother no longer recognized.  Kurbanova leaves behind a young traumatized child who will forever have to live with the knowledge that her mother was a mass murderer.

The road to radicalization appears to be a painful one that should shock people.  It should make us sit up and ask some serious questions about a religion that kills its own.

You might argue that she had a choice, and yes she made it.  But was it a free decision?

It is not fitting for a Muslim man or woman to have any choice in their affairs when a matter has been decided for them by Allah and His Messenger. They have no option. If any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a wrong Path Qur’an 33:36

From the moment she made the decision to become a Moslem her path was already being laid out before her, path of vengeance anger hatred and eventual destruction.  

This dear woman died long before they strapped a bomb to her.  In the end this was a senseless waste of a young life that should have been around to see her child grow up.  That should have found happiness with her daughter sitting on her lap and reading her silly stories.  She should have been around to see her daughter through schools, watch her grow into a woman and possibly see her walk down the isle to her wedding.  But that will never happen. She threw that part of her life away. 

Most tragic of all she threw her own daughters life with it.  When asked in the years to come by friends concerning her mother, what can she say?  I last saw my mother on TV with her head on some dirty pavement separated from her body.  How do you life with that image?
