Martydom and Ayat 154 Of Surat Baqra..

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

In Ayat 154 of Surat Baqra of the Holy Qur'an (2:154), we read it where Allah Ta'ala says:--

             "And say not of those who are slain in the way of Allah: 'They are dead.'  Nay, they are

            living, though you perceive it not."

This Ayat is explained by/in Hadith (Abu Dawud, Kitab Jihad) wherein the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: "When your brothers from Uhud were touched (by death), Allah placed their spirits in a green bird that drinks from the rivers of Paradise, eats its fruits and rests near golden candles hanging in the shadows of the Throne.  When they saw that their food, drink and resting places were good, they said: 'Who will let our brothers know that we are alive in Paradise, and that we receive our subsistence, that they may not skimp in the struggle, and that they do not abdicate in the war?" 

Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, said, "I will let them know."  And above quoted Ayat 154 of Surat Baqra was then brought down: "And say not of those who are slain in the way of Allah...(2:154)

In anycase if your rationale for life is that you eat and move around, they also eat. Whatever you/we eat of grain, fruit or meat, is a product of dust, you consume dust, while they consume Noor (Divine Light).
