The Martyr

The Martyr-الشهيد

1. One who dies on his bed while he is cognizant of the rights of his Lord, His Prophet and the right of his household, has died a martyr and his reward rests with Allah, the Glorified. He is also eligible for the recompense of the good acts he intended to do, as his intention takes the place of drawing his sword [in battle]. Indeed, for everything there is a [limited] term that it cannot go beyond.

1ـ مَنْ ماتَ عَلى فِراشِهِ وهُوَ على مَعْرِفَةِ حَقِّ رَبِّهِ ورَسُولِهِ وحَقِّ أهْلِ بَيْتِهِ ماتَ شَهيداً، ووَقَعَ أجْرُهُ عَلَى اللّهِ سُبْحانَهُ واسْتَوْجَبَ ثَوابَ ما نَوى مِنْ صالِحِ عَمَلِهِ، وقامَتْ نِيَّتُهُ مَقامَ إصْلاتِهِ سَيْفَهُ (بِسَيْفِهِ)، فَإنَّ لِكُلِّ شَْيء أجَلاً لايَعْدُوهُ.

2. We ask Allah, the Glorified, for [our inclusion in] the ranks of the martyrs, the fellowship of the felicitous and the company of the Prophets and the virtuous ones.

2ـ نَسْأَلُ اللّهَ سُبْحانَهُ مَنازِلَ الشُّهَداءِ، ومُعايَشَةَ السُّعَداءِ، ومُرافَقَةَ الأنْبِياءِ والأبْرارِ.
