Bin Laden's Final Message: "I'm Sorry"

The world's most infamous terrorist left a most interesting and reflective message to his wives and children.

He had written a will after he escaped US forces in Afghanistan. The 4-page document is dated December 14, 2001.

Although it was believed he had inherited 18 million pounds from his father, nothing is said of money or possessions.

The TELEGRAPH reports, "The four page document, published in a Kuwaiti newspaper, is largely devoted to justifying the terrorist's efforts to destroy America and Israel."

He told his 24 children, "You my children, I apologize for giving you so little of my time because I responded to the need for Jihad."

The directive to his children was to not join al-Qaeda, citing a precedent from Islamic texts. They believe Mohammad's successor, Omar bin al-Khattab had left written instruction to his son, Abdulla, not to wage holy war.

And what about his 4 wives?

He wrote, "Don't consider marrying again. And devote yourselves to your children and guide them to the right path."

This stands in contrast to the desire of Judeo-Christians who try to live according to God's Word and want their children to follow in His ways as well---in the right path.

More than a thousand years before Islam texts were written, it was written, "There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death." Proverbs 14:12 NIV

Also written in ancient Scripture, "Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long." Psalms 25:4-5 NIV

May his children discover the right path to God's grace and truth.

  1. Although he expressed regret over the loss of time with his kids. I heard nothing about the kids forced to grow up without a parent or vice versa due to his murderous activities. His organization and its offshoots are responsible for the death of tens of thousands of people. I heard not an inkling of sorrow for that. My heart grieves for those people and as much as I hate to say it, Good riddance to Bin Laden. The world is a better place w/o him.
