Status of Shaheed (Al Quran)

And do not say regarding those who have been martyred in Allah’s cause, that they are dead. Nay, they are alive but you perceive it not. (Surah Al-Baqarah: 154)

The martyr (Shahid) receives this great rank because he had sacrified his life and wealth in the path of Allah. The honour which he will witness in the life of Barzakh will cause all the pleasure of the world to seem totally worthless. Sayyidina Masruq رحمہ اللہ says that they queried from Sayyidina Abdullah bin Mas’ud رضی اللہ عنہ concerning the verse, “Never consider those salin in Allah’s way to be dead. Indeed they are alive, being sustained by their Lord. They are jubilant with what their Lord gives them from His bounty” (Surah Al Imran: 169-170)
