Abu Musab al-Zarqawi had tatoos?

So I was reading the Yahoo news article, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi killed in air raid, and lo and behold I read this:

Al-Zarqawi’s body was found and moved to a secure location, where it was positively identified at 3:30 a.m. Thursday, Caldwell said, adding that the confirmation was made with scars, tatoos and fingerprints known to be al-Zarqawi’s.

The big (he looks kinda small) and bad (yeah he’s bad!) Al-Qaeda general had tatoos? You’ve got to be kidding me? Tatoos are haram (prohibited) in Islam. Maybe Zarqawi didn’t know. Maybe he didn’t grow up in a religious environment and later in his life he came closer to Allah. Who knows. Gotta give him “the 70”. Allah knows best. I would have love to see what the tatoo looked like though.

Hopefully, the killings will stop now and the US will be out. Then the Iraqi people can develop their country, rebuild it and relax in Baghdad. InshaAllah.

      I doubt fighting will end. The mentality that this war is being prolonged soleley by the insurgents is faulty. And as famous as Zarqawi had become, I don’t think this will effect the majority of the people fighting. Al-Qaeda was only famous in the world due to the US repetitive muttering of the name in any situation which involved “bad people.” Al Qaeda for sure barely existed in Afghanistan, and the fighting there has only picked up there, not slowed down. Zarqawi was famous only because the media gave him the spotlight, I doubt the majority of fighters are even on Zarqawi’s team. Perhaps less explosions where civilians in the area might occur, and that would be good, too many civilians have died. Let’s not forget yet, Haditha’s details are still being uncovered. Just mentioning that event gives me shudders.

      May Allah protect the innocent civilians from the retaliatory attacks for the death of Zarqawi.

      There’s already been one attack. blah.

      I’m trying to find images of his tattoos, or at least a written description. But nothing so far. Yes it has been known for some time that he had tattoos. Also intelligence says he was never really ‘religious’, or a faithful Muslim. For him it’s was about the power and the killing.

      Zarqawi Dead, May He Rot In Hell…

      Two 500 pound bombs met Abu Musab al Zarqawi yesterday evening in Iraq. The meeting was arranged by Iarqi citizens, a Jordanian inside al-Qaeda, one of Zarqawi’s own leutenants, the Iraqi military, the Iraqi police, coalition forces, and the United…

      I don’t particularly like zarqawi [make that I dont like him at all] but as a matter of curiosity, who is “intelligence”, because if they’re not muslim, they can hardly tell what a “faithful” muslim is.

      Wow – a terrorist who claims to be Muslim has tattoos. What a surprise!??!?

      Lol amir, why does it bother you when a person who claims to be Muslim is behind acts of terrorism and violence – has a tattoo?

      and you said “Gotta give him the 72″…

      I hope you werent referring to the 72 houri as mentioned in the Quran! (I have a feeling you meant to say 70 (as in the numbers of excuses you should give a Muslim brother).

    7. Debbie June 8th, 2006 at 1:39 pm

      Intelligence is from many sources, including: His family members, specifically his sister. Others who knew and grew up with him, Jordanians, and ‘experts’.

      “Ahmad Fadil [Abu Musab al Zarqawi’s real name] had anger. It still broke out of him uncontrollably, getting him into fights and leading him to drink and steal. Again and again his father had to pick him up at the police station. He is known in the neighbourhood as the ‘green man’, for the tattoos on his shoulders and arms. An anchor covers his left hand, and three blue dots decorate his thumbs, the sign of his gang.” (Urs Gehriger, Die Weltwoche) here http://www.weltwoche.ch/artikel/?AssetID=12195&CategoryID=73

      Salaam,

      I believe Zarqawi had tatoos long before he became religious.

      To hahmed: Ittaqullah (have fear of Allah) for your misuse of the tongue. Have you met Zarqawi and seen his sincerity for Allah? Absolutely not. So don’t throw your tongue around like that, in any manner you please. I hope and pray Allah accepts him as a Shaheed and forgives him for his shortcomings (whatever they may be). Zarqawi has achieved victory because he stepped up when a Muslim land was attacked. For those who could do the same but decided not to and further decided to live in the enemies land have achieved defeat.

      Change your meanings of victory and defeat to that of Qur’an and Sunnah’s definition. Be truthful to yourself and stop beating around the bush.

      yeah they said that in his early days he used to Drink until “He found Allah” subhanallah, they use the term as they use the term “found Jesus”.

      Subhana’Allah. Some people are judging this noble man because he had tattoos. So what? What if he bacame a better Muslim later on?

      I can say the same thing about some people who have a G Line..oops I mean a G-String…oops I mean the Brazilian beard. I mean I think whoever has it is being fooled. Its not part of the Sunnah nor does it complete the requirements of the beard. So does that give me the right to say you are terrible Muslim who never followed Islam the way it should have been?

      Come on thats a retarded thing to say. Also, some of you should watch what you say when it comes to Islam. There is no joking permissible in matters of the deen.

      May Allah grant the Prince of al-Qaeda, Sheikh Abu Musab az-Zarqawi the status of a Shaheed and allow him to enter the highest level in Jannah. AMEEN

      vulgarity isn’t part of Islam either.

      but i agree, he may have had a tattoo before he became “religious” [or, his twisted view of what religion was].

    13. mujahideenryder June 8th, 2006 at 10:22 pm

      If tatoos were halal, I’d get a tatoo of “Mujahideen Ryder” in big gangsta letters on my back. hahaha

      ok sorry, i was just thinking

      astagfirAllah!

      inshaAllah in Jannah, haha

      May Allah (swt) grant us all jannah! Ameen!

    14. shabana June 9th, 2006 at 12:29 pm

      YOU ALL PEOPLE!!HE WAS A CONVERT SO HE HAD TATOO B4 HE BECAME MUSLIM-

    15. cevriye June 9th, 2006 at 1:26 pm

      InshAllah, Mujahideen. I am sure it is the wish of everybody. May Allah protect us from new assassinations by his supporters and not give them the opportunity even to think of it.

    16. Mr GQ June 9th, 2006 at 3:52 pm

      So Omar ibn al-Khattab (R) used to drink before he became a Muslim. Is he bad too now? Think people. Think.

      if your commenting on my comment, all i was saying was that yes, he used to drink before he became “Religious” (wallahu alem) honestly, i dont believe anything in the media or that this government puts out. i hate to be one of those people who thinks everything is a conspiracy, but alqaeda in general i dont buy it.. wallahu ta’ala alem. who cares anyway lets live our lives, be better Muslims, and fear Allah.

      yea, back in the day he used to rob people and stuff

      If America wanted to, they could have bombed his resisdence long time ago…so why now? Right after Zarqawi was killed, there were approximately 12-14 bombings over civillian sites (random villages, etc.) by US Troops. So perhaps bombing Zarqawi’s residence was just a ploy to deflect some all attention from the civillian casualties? Perhaps it was done so that headlines grabbed Zarqawi’s death whilst hundreds of other ‘unimportant’ civillians died in the bombings by the coalition forces? It’s not important to you or me if Zarqawi was indeed a good muslim or a bad muslim…that has no relevance to us, because, well, he’s dead, and will only be accountable to Allah for his deeds now. Meanwhile, the implications that these events have over Iraqi civillians, is something that is more important and needs urgent attention.

    25. OECD June 10th, 2006 at 9:32 pm

      coolness! :)

      The other bombings/arrests/etc. that took place simultaneously and immediately after Zarqawi’s safe house was hit, were done as a result of intelligence obtained leading up to that bombing. Also as many as 40 other places were investigated for terrorists as a result of information gained from Zarqawi’s house. No matter what the conspiracy theories are, the US doesn’t just go in and drop bombs on innocent people for the fun of it.

      Other information on Zarqawi’s history:

      “He grew up in poverty, dropped out of school and took to heavy drinking, tattoos and fighting. Allegedly jailed for sexual assault, he embraced militant Islam and travelled in Afghanistan in 1989. With the Soviets already defeated, he was left to edit a magazine for demobilised mujaheddin” …

      “Reportedly jailed for possessing arms in 1993, Zarqawi became a taciturn loner; fellow prisoners recalled him intimidating inmates with a mere glare. When not studying the Qur’an, he would lift weights to beef up his slight frame. Released in an amnesty in 1999, he was soon to be sentenced in absentia for plotting to bomb tourists celebrating the new millennium at the Radisson SAS hotel in Amman.He joined Bayat al-Imam (Loyalty to the Imam), a radical Jordanian clique led by another former convict, Issam Barqawi, also allegedly planned to kill Christians pilgrims.

    27. Debbie June 11th, 2006 at 3:53 pm

      I don’t know why what was in italics. Sorry.

      Anyway, the point I wanted to make was that the tattoos were indeed before he became “religious” as you say. But the religion, or form of Islam that he was introduced to in prison was the ‘radical’ version.

      More people are led astray by ‘bad’ imams/preachers in prisons than any where else. This type preaching should be stopped in prison. The prisoners are a captive audience, usually not so bright as with Zarqawi, and easily led astray.
