    Re: Dying as Shaheed during war - Question

    far as I know, he would be classed shaheed, depending on his actions and intentions. he would be classed shaheed even if he was making his way to a battlefield but died on the way

    Is a person who is killed in a war against the communists considered to be a shaheed (martyr)?

    Sometimes there are clashes and battles between the Thai army – which includes a number of Muslims – and Communist groups in different parts of XXXX. This results in deaths on both sides. What is the ruling on the Muslims who are fighting in the ranks of the XXX army and are killed fighting these Communist gangs? Can we consider them to be martyrs (shuhadaa’)?


    Praise be to Allaah.

    Their matter rests with Allaah, Who knows what their intentions were. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was asked about one who fights because he is brave, one who fights for the sake of tribalism or nationalism, and one who fights in order to show off – which one is fighting for the sake of Allaah? He said: “The one who fights so that the word of Allaah will be supreme is the one who is fighting for the sake of Allaah.” (Agreed upon. Al-Bukhaari, 1/40; Muslim, 2/1513).

    On this basis, the one who was fighting for the sake of Allaah and so that the word of Allaah will be supreme is considered to be a martyr.

    And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions, and grant them peace.

    Dying as Shaheed during war - Question

    Salaam Brothers/Sisters!

    I was hoping that some of you might Insha'Allah help me with this question i have.

    If a brother dies in war but is not involved in active battle at the time of death, is he still considered a Shaheed? To elaborate even more, if a brother is betrayed by another muslim and dies as a result of that betrayal during war-time but not in active battle, is he considered Shaheed?

    Thank you for you answer in advance and may Allah reward you with all that is good in this life and the hereafter!
