MARTYRDOM WITHOUT FIGHTING IN BATTLE

MARTYRDOM WITHOUT FIGHTING IN BATTLE

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Abu Huraira, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: The Messenger of Allah, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

الشُّهَدَاءُ خَمْسَةٌ الْمَطْعُونُ وَالْمَبْطُونُ وَالْغَرِقُ وَصَاحِبُ الْهَدْمِ وَالشَّهِيدُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ

The martyrs are of five kinds: one who dies of plague, one who dies of stomach disease, one who drowns, one who dies under debris, and one who dies in the path of Allah the Exalted.

Abu Huraira, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: The Messenger of Allah, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

مَا تَعُدُّونَ الشَّهِيدَ فِيكُمْ

Who do you think is a martyr among you?

They said, “The one who is killed in the way of Allah.” He, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

إِنَّ شُهَدَاءَ أُمَّتِي إِذًا لَقَلِيلٌ

Verily, if that is so, then the martyrs among my nation are few.

They said, “O Messenger of Allah, then who are the martyrs?” He, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

مَنْ قُتِلَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ وَمَنْ مَاتَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ وَمَنْ مَاتَ فِي الطَّاعُونِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ وَمَنْ مَاتَ فِي الْبَطْنِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ

He who is killed in the way of Allah is a martyr, and he who dies a natural death in the way of Allah is a martyr, and he who dies of plague is a martyr, and he who dies of stomach disease is a martyr, and he who dies from drowning is a martyr.

Abdullah ibn Amr, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

مَنْ قُتِلَ دُونَ مَالِهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ

Whoever is killed defending his wealth is a martyr.

Sa’eed ibn Zaid, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: The Messenger of Allah, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

مَنْ قُتِلَ دُونَ مَالِهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ وَمَنْ قُتِلَ دُونَ دِينِهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ وَمَنْ قُتِلَ دُونَ دَمِهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ وَمَنْ قُتِلَ دُونَ أَهْلِهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ

Whoever is killed protecting his wealth is a martyr, and whoever is killed protecting his religion is a martyr, and whoever is killed protecting his life is a martyr, and whoever is killed protecting his family is a martyr.

Abu Huraira, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: A man came to the Messenger of Allah, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, and he said, “O Messenger of Allah, what do you think if a man comes to seize my wealth?” The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

فَلَا تُعْطِهِ مَالَكَ

Do not give up your wealth.

The man said, “What if he fights me?” The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

قَاتِلْهُ

Then fight him.

The man said, “What if he kills me?” The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

فَأَنْتَ شَهِيدٌ

You will be a martyr.

The man said, “What do you think if I kill him?” The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

هُوَ فِي النَّارِ

He will be in the Hellfire.
