Summary: 

Radicalisation is a process. It can happen quickly or slowly, but in the context of Muslims there are some essential religious requirements. If a believing Muslim is to carry out a suicide bombing, they must believe that this is a good act in the eyes of God, and not an act that will automatically condemn them to spending all of eternity in Hell. The same applies to killing other people without ending your own life. If the Muslim concerned believed that killing a particular person or persons was going to automatically condemn them to spending all of eternity in Hell, they would not do it.
