The Will of Allah

Somebody care to explain what the Big Guy was thinking here?
-- KABUL, Afghanistan -- A mother who tried to stop her son from carrying out a suicide bomb attack triggered an explosion in the family's home in southern Afghanistan that killed the would-be bomber, his mother and three siblings, police said Monday.

The would-be bomber had been studying at a madrassa, or religious school, in Pakistan, and when he returned to his home in Uruzgan province over the weekend announced that he planned to carry out a suicide attack, Interior Ministry spokesman Zemeri Bashary said.
So what exactly is the martyrdom protocol here? Mom was actually trying to stop the killer... so does she end up missing the nirvana express?
Surviving family members told police that the suicide vest exploded during a struggle between the mother and her son, said Juma Gul Himat, Uruzgan's police chief. The man's brother and two sisters were also killed.
I'd love to know how they play this one out the local mosque.

Such a waste.
