Whether a non-Muslim who dies for his country is called as Martyr?
A non-Muslim soldier who saves the people of country from terrorist attack and loose his life for the sake of country or people or good deed? Whether he will be considered as Martyr according to Islam?
If yes, then will he face the fire of Hell as he died as non-Muslim?
I asked same question to Mufti Munawwar Husain Sahab, Director of Tawheed Centre.
His reply was as below:
To be called as martyr it is mandatory to have Iman . So if a non-muslim dies saving the people of his country he will not be called a martyr according to Islam as he didn't fulfill the condition of Iman.
To get more clarification one can directly contact Mufti Munawwar Husain.
Like any library, Islam Stack Exchange offers great information, but does not offer personalized advice or legal verdicts, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your Mufti, Imam, or other trustworthy Counselor.
