Mall of America Stabbing Suspect is Mahad Abdirahaman


Suspect Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman is in custody after two victims stabbed at the Mall of America yesterday. He was allegedly caught redhanded in the middle of a robbery in the dressing room at Macy's.

There are still a lot of questions: Who is Abdirahaman? What motivated the theft? Is he a practicing Muslim? Where is he from? 

It's reported that the suspect and victims didn't know each other -- but were the victims Muslim? After all, if Abdirahaman is a faithful Muslim surely he knows that Islam allows for theft against non-Muslims: Allah promiseth you much booty that ye will capture, and hath given you this in advance, and hath withheld men's hands from you, that it may be a token for the believers, and that He may guide you on a right path (Quran 48:18-20)

In other words, Quran 48:18-20 allows for a Robbery of Peace.
