If someone dies having stomach cancer will they become a martyr in Jannah and have their sins forgiven? I know its for diarrhea, drowning, wall falling and ofc Jihad but what about Stomach Cancer?

    I am afraid if you declare everyone dying from any disease than that will be too much. Also this status of martyr is not FULL FLEDGE, i heard their are 70 levels of martyr, and this type of martyr who is not martyred in a fight for islam gets only 1 of those. Aug 15, 2016 at 6:08

In the name of Allah.


In the hadith of the prophet (peace be on him) he said:

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَاصِمٍ، عَنْ مَالِكٍ، عَنْ سُمَىٍّ، عَنْ أَبِي صَالِحٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ "‏ الْمَبْطُونُ شَهِيدٌ، وَالْمَطْعُونُ شَهِيدٌ ‏"‏‏.‏

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "He (a Muslim) who dies of an abdominal disease is a martyr, and he who dies of plague is a martyr."


Sahih al-Bukhari 5733

Allah knows best.
