CHAPTER: THE MERIT OF MARTYRDOM  

No. 4634

It has been narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:" Nobody who dies and has something good for him with Allaah will (ever like to) return to this world even though he were offered the whole world and all that is in its (as an inducement), except the martyr who desires to return and be killed in the world for the (great) merit of martyrdom that he has seen.

No. 4635

It has been narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik (through a different chain of transmitters) that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Nobody who enters Paradise will (ever like to) return to this world even if he were offered everything on the surface of the earth (as an inducement) except the martyr who will desire to return to this world and be killed ten times for the sake of the great honour that has been bestowed upon him.

No. 4636

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira who said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was asked: What deed could be an equivalent of Jihad in the way of Allaah, the Almighty and Exalted? He answered: You do not have the strength to do that deed. The narrator said: They repeated the question twice or thrice. Every time he answered: You do not have the strength to do it. When the question was asked for the third time, he said: One who goes out for Jibad is like a person who keeps fasts, stands in prayer (constantly), (obeying) Allaah's (behests contained in) the verses (of the Qur'an), and does not exhibit any lassitude in fasting and prayer until the Mujihid returns from Jihad in the way of Allaah, the Exalted.

No. 4637

This tradition has been handed down through a different chain of transmitters.

No. 4638

It has been narrated on the authority of Nu'man b. Bashir who said: As I was (sitting) near the pulpit of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), a man said: I do not care if, after embracing Islam, I do not do any good deed (except) distributing drinking water among the pilgrims. Another said: I do not care if, after embracing Islam, I do not do any good deed beyond maintenance service to the Sacred Mosque. Another said: Jihad in the way of Allaah is better than what you have said. 'Umar reprimanded them and said: Don't raise your voices near the pulpit of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) on Friday. When prayer was over, I entered (the apartment of the Prophet) and asked his verdict about the matter in which they had differed. (It was upon this that) Allaah, the Almighty and Exalted, revealed the Qur'anic verse:" Do you make the giving of drinking water to the pilgrims and the maintenance of the Sacred Mosque equal to (the service of those) who believe in Allaah and the Last Day and strive hard in the cause of Allaah. They are not equal in the sight of God. And Allaah guides not the wrongdoing people" (ix. 20). This tradition has been narrated on the authority of Nu'man b. Bashir through another chain of transmitters.
