Death and Martyrdom

[2:28] How do you deny Allah and you were dead and He gave you life? Again He will cause you to die and again bring you to life, then you shall be brought back to Him.

[2:46] Who know that they shall meet their Lord and that they shall re- turn to Him.

[2:154] And do not speak of those who are slain in Allah's way as dead; nay, (they are) alive, but you do not perceive.

[3:145] And a soul will not die but with the permission of Allah the term is fixed; and whoever desires the reward of this world, I shall give him of it, and whoever desires the reward of the hereafter I shall give him of it, and I will reward the grateful.

[3:157] And if you are slain in the way of Allah or you die, certainly forgiveness from Allah and mercy is better than what they amass.

[3:158] And if indeed you die or you are slain, certainly to Allah shall you be gathered together.

[3:169] And reckon not those who are killed in Allah's way as dead; nay, they are alive (and) are provided sustenance from their Lord;

[3:170] Rejoicing in what Allah has given them out of His grace and they rejoice for the sake of those who, (being left) behind them, have not yet joined them, that they shall have no fear, nor shall they grieve.

[3:171] They rejoice on account of favor from Allah and (His) grace, and that Allah will not waste the reward of the believers.

[6:36] Only those accept who listen; and (as to) the dead, Allah will raise them, then to Him they shall be returned.

[6:60] And He (Allah) it is Who takes your souls at night (in sleep), and He knows what you acquire in the day, then He raises you up therein that an appointed term may be fulfilled; then to Him is your return, then He will inform you of what you were doing.

[6:61] And He (Allah) is the Supreme, above His servants, and He sends keepers over you; until when death comes to one of you, Our messengers cause him to die, and they are not remiss.

[6:62] Then are they sent back to Allah, their Master, the True one; now surely His is the judgment and He is swiftest in taking account.

[7:37] Who is then more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah or rejects His communications? (As for) those, their portion of the Book shall reach them, until when Our messengers come to them causing them to die, they shall say: Where is that which you used to call upon besides Allah? They would say: They are gone away from us; and they shall bear witness against themselves that they were unbelievers

[8:50] And had you seen when the angels will cause to die those who disbelieve, smiting their faces and their backs, and (saying): Taste the punishment of burning.

[11:4] To Allah is your return, and He has power over all things.

[20:55] From it (earth) We created you and into it We shall send you back and from it will We raise you a second time.

[20:74] Whoever comes to his Lord (being) guilty, for him is surely hell; he shall not die therein, nor shall he live.

[20:75] And whoever comes to Him a believer (and) he has done good deeds indeed, these it is who shall have the high ranks,

[20:76] The gardens of perpetuity, beneath which rivers flow, to abide therein; and this is the reward of him who has purified himself.

[21:34] And We did not ordain abiding for any mortal before you. What! Then if you die, will they abide?

[21:35] Every soul must taste of death and We try you by evil and good by way of probation; and to Us you shall be brought back.

[22:58] And (as for) those who fly in Allah's way and are then slain or die, Allah will most certainly grant them a goodly sustenance, and most surely Allah is the best Giver of sustenance.

[22:59] He will certainly cause them to enter a place of entrance which they shall be well pleased with, and most surely Allah is Knowing, Forbearing.

[23:15] Then after that you will most surely die.

[23:16] Then surely on the day of resurrection you shall be raised.

[23:99] Until when death overtakes one of them (disbeliever), he says: Send me back, my Lord, send me back;

[23:100] Haply I may do good in that which I have left. By no means! It is a (mere) word that he speaks; and before them is a barrier until the day they are raised.

[29:5] Whoever hopes to meet Allah, the term appointed by Allah will then most surely come; and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

[29:57] Every soul must taste of death, then to Us you shall be brought back.

[32:10] And they say: What! When we have become lost in the earth, shall we then certainly be in a new creation? Nay! They are disbelievers in the meeting of their Lord.

[32:11] Say: The angel of death who is given charge of you shall cause you to die, then to your Lord you shall be brought back.

[36:68] And whomsoever We cause to live long, We reduce (him) to an abject state in constitution; do they not then understand?

[39:30] Surely you shall die and they (too) shall surely die.

[39:31] Then surely on the day of resurrection you will contend one with another before. your Lord.

[39:42] Allah takes the souls at the time of their death, and those that die not during their sleep; then He withholds those on whom He has passed the decree of death and sends the others back till an appointed term; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect.

[41:54] Now surely they are in doubt as to the meeting of their Lord; now surely He encompasses all things.

[43:14] And surely to our Lord we must return.

[45:26] Say: Allah gives you life, then He makes you die, then will He gather you to the day of resurrection wherein is no doubt, but most people do not know.

[47:5] He will guide them (who were slain in the way of Allah) and improve their condition.

[47:6] And cause them to enter the garden which He has made known to them.

[50:19] And the stupor of death will come in truth; that is what you were trying to escape.

[56:60] We have ordained death among you and We (Allah) are not to be overcome,

[56:61] In order that We may bring in your place the likes of you and make you grow into what you know not.

[56:83] Why is it not then that when it (soul) comes up to the throat,

[56:84] And you at that time look on,

[56:85] And We are nearer to it than you, but you do not see,

[56:86] Then why is it not, if you are not held under authority,

[56:87] That you send it (not) back, if you are truthful?

[56:88] Then if he is one of those drawn nigh (to Allah),

[56:89] Then happiness and bounty and a garden of bliss.

[56:90] And if he is one of those on the right hand,

[56:91] Then peace to you from those on the right hand.

[56:92] And if he is one of the rejecters, the erring ones,

[56:93] He shall have an entertainment of boiling water,

[56:94] And burning in hell.

[56:95] Most surely this is a certain truth.

[62:8] Say: (As for) the death from which you flee, that will surely overtake you, then you shall be sent back to the Knower of the unseen and the seen, and He will inform you of that which you did.

[63:11] And Allah does not respite a soul when its appointed term has come, and Allah is Aware of what you do.

[79:1] I swear by the angels who violently pull out the souls of the wicked,

[79:2] And by those who gently draw out the souls of the blessed,
