Shia: In Short: The shia should show sadness and grief on this day to celebrate the martyr of Hussein. According to ...

To answer this question we should first know what the definition of being alive and animate is. As you can e.g. read here, scientifically, the properties of life are counted as being capable of response to stimuli, reproduction, growth and development, and maintenance of homeostasis as a stable whole, although no unique definition is also accepted by all the ...

From Tafsir al-Qurtubi: قوله تعالى ويتخذ منكم شهداء أي يكرمكم بالشهادة ; أي ليقتل قوم فيكونوا شهداء على الناس بأعمالهم . وقيل : لهذا قيل شهيد : وقيل : سمي شهيدا لأنه مشهود له بالجنة وقيل : سمي شهيدا لأن أرواحهم احتضرت دار السلام ، لأنهم أحياء عند ربهم ، وأرواح غيرهم لا تصل إلى الجنة ; فالشهيد بمعنى الشاهد أي الحاضر للجنة From Sharah Sahih Muslim - Nawawi:...

An important angle to consider is that in Islam, nationalism or tribalism is if not outright haram extremely disliked. "The believing men and believing women are allies of one another. They enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Those - Allah will have mercy upon them. Indeed, ...

In Quran the word شهید means Witness. But in custom, we call any person who is killed in the way of Allah, Martyr. And as you know Imam Hussain (A.S.) and Hamzah(the prophet uncle) are the master of all the martyrs. This meaning has been clarified in Qur'an many times. But there is nothing about 72 virgins in heaven in none of them. Please mention that the ...

Before we consult ahadith, we will have to see what Quran says on this Topic. After all, a book that tells you how to clean yourself (method of wudu) can not neglect to tell you when you are allowed to take a human life. Quran is full of disrespectful words that were being used for the prophet at the time. For example we see in Surat Furqan: 25:4 25:5 25:7 ...

There can be diverse reasons for that, such as: Narrating of historical events was not like now (to be written…), and actually the narrating of the events was often verbally, consequently perhaps wrongly … On the other hand, the Muslims were busy in fighting at that time, and as a result were not so worry to register the dates of events exactly. The ...

A martyr is a Muslim who gets killed in combat against the disbelievers. Such a person will be called and treated as a martyr in at least this life, such as in the funeral rites. In order to be a martyr in the sight of Allah, and hence be granted paradise, his intentions must be pure. His goal must have been the dominance of Islam and defeating of Kufr, not ...

It’s all about their intention. Whoever sacrifice their Life for the sake of Allah swt will consider as a martyr.

And the reward of martyr is giving ALLAH azwajal.That’s why i said it’s about their ...

In the name of Allah. Salaam, 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 ...

Imam Reza(a.s.) quoted from his fathers (ancestors) that Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) said: Shahid(martyre) is the initial person who enters the Janna (paradise) (Majmoo'eh Varam Vol.2, Pg.121 ) Of course I assume we ought to pay attention that seemingly there are two kinds of Heaven(paradise). A heaven which is related to Barzakh, and the other heaven ...

Only to add that the prophet was the first who cried for Imam Hussain in many occasions. Since He knew what will happen to Imam Hussain, he cried when he was born and in the second occasion when the prophet wanted to stay alone in the room but Imam Hussain came to him and in this moment the angel jibril brought the soil of Karbala to the prophet and explain ...
