virgins for death

I heard one reason for becoming a martyr is there is a promise of virgins afterwards. Does anyone know where this idea came from? Are they male of female versions?

  • I heard it was 72 virgins. Regardless of whether this is even true or not, those suicide "martyrs" are insane.

  • If anything is harder to believe in that god, it's got to be that that many virgins exist.

  • Wow...the views of Islam on this site by anons is utterly disturbing.

    It is 72 virgins and it comes from something in the Quran. Nothing psychotic...it's rather normal...much like the things in the Bible.

    I'm giving that anon the benefit of the doubt, because I read that to mean that there ARE psychotic (extremist) views within Islam, and that this idea it is twisted by some extremists is one of them, not that Islam and all Muslims are psychotic as a whole. She did say it was a psychotic interpretation.

    LMAO at Beeky. :O) as
