Large section of non muslims beleive in this myth due to propoganda they get .there is no truth in this . SUICIDES ARE HARAM IN ISLAM .STRICTLY PROHIBITED . YOU CAN SEE MUSLIMS HARDLY SUICIDE AND COMPARE WITH JAPAN WHERE 30000 SUICIDE ANNUALLY OR NATO SOLDIERS WHO SUICIDE AT FEAR OF BATTLE
God is creator and he knows what ot give to beleivers in paradise
the bliss and happiness is pure in heaven unlike filthy things we see on earth
there is no sex or reproduction in paradise
there is no satan in paradise to provoke filthy feeling
we can not imagine delights of paradise by earthly standard
Also, the believers who make it into Paradise, male and female, are promised beautiful companions, known as Houris in Arabic. The Quran describes them in some detail as such:

. A BIRD IN THE HAND IS WORTH TWO IN THE BUSH
(I did nt say so, it was from JOHN BUNYAN in THE PILGRIM'S PROGRESS in the year 1678).
So are the men of this world: They must have all their good things now; they cannot stay till the next year, that is, until the next world, for their portion of good. That this proverb, is of more authority with them than are all the divine testimonies of the good of the world to come.

Well if 72 houris are waitingfor us with bated breath. Let them wait a little more, and allow us to complete our life on the earth. They will not age, but will remain forever young

No. Giving up one's life while following one's duty to protect others is one thing and dying for the sake of any promised rewards in after-life is something else
