Signs of a Good End

Written by Shaykh Muhammad Nasir-ud-Deen al-Albani

The Prophet, salaallaahu `alayhi wa sallam said, "A Muslim who is killed in a battle is a martyr, (dying in) plague is martyrdom, a woman who dies while delivering a baby is a martyr." 1

The Prophet, salaallaahu `alayhi wa sallam said, "The martyrs are seven, other than the one who is killed in the Way of Allaah, ta`aalaa:

One who dies of plague,
one who drowns,
one who dies of pleurisy,
one who dies of stomach ache,
one who dies due to burning
one who dies under a demolition (by accident)
a woman who dies with a baby in her womb." 2

The Prophet, salaallaahu `alayhi wa sallam said: "Getting killed in the Path of Allaah ta`aalaa is martyrdom,
[death in] confinement during childbirth is martyrdom,
[death by] getting burned [by accident] is martyrdom,
[death by] drowning [by accident] is martyrdom,
[death due to] tuberculosis is martyrdom,
[death due to] stomach ache is martyrdom." 3
