A Shaheed is a follower of Muhammad who dies in the service of expanding the domain of 'Islam' against any and all those who do not believe in
"Allah and His messenger Muhammad".
In the Judeo-Christian traditions, a martyr(GreekMartus meaning witness) is one who suffers death for his/her faith without bringing down his own death upon himself, that is, without committing suicide nor murdering others.
In Muhammadan Islam, on the other hand, unlike the Judeo-Christian creed, many other types of deaths - even without torture or death in battle - are also termed martyrdom.
Muhammadan law makes provisions for persons acting under compulsion, when the person who compels has it in his power to execute orders, he be king or a thief.
(Hidayah, vol. iii. p. 452.) E.g. a person forced into a contract may dissolve it.
A Muhammadan may lawfully eat food which is prohibited if he be compelled to do so, being threatened with loss of life or limb. Nor is a Muhammadan Muslim guilty of sin who declares himself an unbeliever when the loss of a limb or of life is threatened.
It is important to note that Muhammad made it extremely easy for his followers not to subject themselves to martyrdom especially under threat to life or limb by allowing them to pretend and deceive the greater force, unlike martyrdom in the traditions of the Jewsand Christians who must suffer for their beliefs and not recant or apostasise under torture and or threat to life and limb. His method was and is the way of the cowards.
In Arabic it is called (Shaheed/Witness) and is defined as follows:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: He who is killed while protecting his property is a martyr, and he who is killed while defending his family, or his blood, or his religion is a martyr. Someone who dies in the way of Allah.
3:140"If you have received a blow and have been wounded, be sure a similar wound has hurt others. Such days We give to men and men by turns: that Allah may know those who believe, and that He may take to Himself from your ranks Martyrs."
3:156"If you are slain, or die, in Allah's Cause [as a martyr], pardon from Allah and mercy are far better than all they could amass."
3:169"Think not of those who are slain in Allah's Cause as dead. Nay, they live, finding their provision from their Lord. Jubilant in the bounty provided by Allah: and with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the Martyrs glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they cause to grieve. Allah will not waste the reward of the believers."
3:172"Of those who answered the call of Allah and the Messenger, even after being wounded (in the fight), those who do right and ward off have a great reward."
4:74"Let those who fight in the Cause of Allahsell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fights in the Cause of Allah, whether he is slain[martyred] or gets victory-soon shall We give him a great reward."
33: 23 Among the Believers are men who have been true to their Covenant with Allah [fought in Jihad] : of them some have completed their vow to (the extreme) [died as martyrs] and some (still) wait: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least:
9:111"Allah has purchased the believers, their lives and their goods. For them (in return) is the Garden (of Paradise). They fight in Allah's Cause, and slay others and are slain[matyred], they kill and are killed[matyred]. It is a promise binding on Him in the Taurat (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), and the Qur'an. And who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. It is the achievement supreme."
61:10"Believers, shall I lead you to a bargain or trade that will save you from a painful torment? That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), and that you strive and fight in Allah's Cause with your property and your lives: That will be best for you!"
61:12"He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens under which rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Eden: that is indeed the Supreme Achievement. And another (favor) which you love: help from Allah for a speedy victory over your enemies."
Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 2493Narrated byAbuMalik al-Ash'ari
AbuMalik heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: He who goes forth in Allah's path and dies or is killed is a martyr, or has his neck broken through being thrown by his horse or by his camel, or is stung by a poisonous creature, or dies on his bed by any kind of death Allah wishes is a martyr and will go to Paradise.
Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 2516Narrated byAbudDarda'
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The intercession of a martyr will be accepted for seventy members of his family.
Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 3105Narrated byJabir ibn Atik
The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) came to visit Abdullah ibn Thabit who was ill. He found that he was dominated (by the divine decree). The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) called him loudly, but he did not respond. He uttered the Qur'anic verse "We belong to Allah and to Him do we return" and he said: We have been dominated against you, AburRabi'. Then the women cried and wept, and Ibn Atik began to silence them. The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Leave them, when the divine decree is made, no woman should weep. They (the people) asked: What is necessary happening, Apostle of Allah? He replied: Death. His daughter said:
I hope you will be a martyr, for you have completed your preparations for jihad. The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Allah Most High gave him a reward according to his intentions. What do you consider martyrdom? They said:
Being killed in the cause of Allah.
The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
There are seven types of martyrdom in addition to being killed in Allah's cause: one who dies of plague is a martyr; one who is drowned is a martyr; one who dies of pleurisy is a martyr; one who dies of an internal complaint is a martyr; one who is burnt to death is a martyr; who one is killed by a building falling on him is a martyr; and a woman who dies while pregnant is a martyr.
Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 4754Narrated bySa'id ibn Zayd
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: He who is killed while protecting his property is a martyr, and he who is killed while defending his family, or his blood, or his religion is a martyr.
***As can be seen from the above, martyrdom in Muhammadan Islam is achieved not only in wars of aggression but also in defence of self, family, country, religion as well as disease and other natural calamities***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 1.35Narrated byAbu Huraira
The Prophet said, "The person who participates in (Holy battles) in Allah's cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and His Apostles, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr). Had I not found it difficult for my followers, then I would not remain behind any sariya going for Jihad and I would have loved to be martyred in Allah's cause and then made alive, and then martyred and then made alive, and then again martyred in His cause."
*** Muhammad is giving one more of his lame excuses as to why he was rarely in the pitch of battle but invariably outside the field of conflict being protected by others like the women and children.
Muhammad was certainly not in the mould of Alexander the Great or a Julius Caesar but a typical Mafia Boss who sends others to their death on his behalf, while promising them the rewards of PLUNDER if they survive their war of aggression OR eternal sex and unlimited pleasures in the AFTERLIFE if they died in battle.
Luxuries and pleasures that the followers of Muhammad could not actually attain in life by peaceful means ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 4.46Narrated byAbu Huraira
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The example of a mujahid in Allah's cause--and Allah knows better who really strives in His cause--is like a person who fasts and prays continuously. Allah guarantees that He will admit the mujahid in His cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty."
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 4.53Narrated byAnas bin Malik
The Prophet said, "Nobody who dies and finds good from Allah (in the Hereafter) would wish to come back to this world even if he were given the whole world and whatever is in it, except the martyr who, on seeing the superiority of martyrdom, would like to come back to the world and get killed again (in Allah's cause)."
Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, "A single endeavor (of fighting) in Allah's cause in the afternoon or in the forenoon is better than all the world and whatever is in it. A place in Paradise as small as the bow or lash of one of you is better than all the world and whatever is in it. And if a houri from Paradise appeared to the people of the earth, she would fill the space between Heaven and the Earth with light and pleasant scent and her head cover is better than the world and whatever is in it."
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 4.54Narrated byAbu Huraira
The Prophet said,
"By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for some men amongst the believers who dislike to be left behind me and whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind any Sariya' (army-unit) setting out in Allah's cause.
By Him in Whose Hands my life is!
I would love to be martyred in Al1ah's cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.
*** Muhammad shows his cowardice in this Hadith.
He was always willing and able to sadly but maliciously send his illiterate, gullible and believing followers to fight on his behalf with promises of booty rewards if they survived or eternal sensual and sexual pleasures in Paradise if they died.
Either way, they would be handsomely rewarded for plundering, murdering, despoiling, enslaving and raping their innocent and unsuspecting victims ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 4.63Narrated byAl Bara
A man whose face was covered with an iron mask (i.e. clad in armor) came to the Prophet and said,
"O Allah's Apostle! Shall I fight or embrace Islam first? "
The Prophet said, "Embrace Islam first and then fight."
So he embraced Islam, and was martyred.
Allah's Apostle said, "A little work, but a great reward. "(He did very little (after embracing Islam), but he will be rewarded in abundance)"
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 4.72Narrated byAnas bin Malik
The Prophet said, "Nobody who enters Paradise likes to go back to the world even if he got everything on the earth, except a mujahidwho wishes to return to the world so that he may be martyred ten times because of the dignity he receives (from Allah)."
Narrated Al-Mughira bin Shu'ba: Our Prophet told us about the message of our Lord that "Whoever amongst us is killed will go to Paradise."
'Umar asked the Prophet, "Is it not true that our men who are killed will go to Paradise and theirs (i.e. those of the Pagans) will go to the (Hell) fire?"
The Prophet said, "Yes."
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 4.82Narrated byAbu Huraira
Allah's Apostle said, "Five are regarded as martyrs:
They are those who die because of plague, abdominal disease, drowning or a falling building etc., and the martyrs in Allah's cause."
***As can be seen from the above, martyrdom is achieved not only in wars of aggression but also in cases of dying by other means ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 5.35Narrated byAnas bin Malik
The Prophet ascended the mountain of Uhud and he was accompanied by Abu Bakr, 'Umar and 'Uthman. The mountain shook beneath them. The Prophet hit it with his foot and said, "O Uhud! Be firm, for on you there is none but a Prophet, a Siddiq and a martyr (i.e. and two martyrs)."
*** Major variation from Muslim 5942***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 4.386Narrated byJubair bin Haiya
'Umar sent the Muslims to the great countries to fight the pagans.When Al-Hurmuzan embraced Islam, 'Umar said to him. "I would like to consult you regarding these countries which I intend to invade." Al-Hurmuzan said, "Yes, the example of these countries and their inhabitants who are the enemies of the Muslims, is like a bird with a head, two wings and two legs; if one of its wings got broken, it would get up over its two legs, with one wing and the head; and if the other wing got broken, it would get up with two legs and a head, but if its head got destroyed, then the two legs, two wings and the head would become useless. The head stands for Khosrau, and one wing stands for Caesar and the other wing stands for Faris. So, order the Muslims to go towards Khosrau." So, 'Umar sent us (to Khosrau) appointing An-Numan bin Muqrin as our commander. When we reached the land of the enemy, the representative of Khosrau came out with forty-thousand warriors, and an interpreter got up saying, "Let one of you talk to me!" Al-Mughira replied, "Ask whatever you wish." The other asked, "Who are you?" Al-Mughira replied, "We are some people from the Arabs; we led a hard, miserable, disastrous life: we used to suck the hides and the date stones from hunger; we used to wear clothes made up of fur of camels and hair of goats, and to worship trees and stones. While we were in this state, the Lord of the Heavens and the Earths, Elevated is His Remembrance and Majestic is His Highness, sent to us from among ourselves a Prophet whose father and mother are known to us.
Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:
"Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master."
(Al-Mughira then blamed An-Numan for delaying the attack and) An-Nu' man said to Al-Mughira, "If you had participated in a similar battle, in the company of Allah's Apostle he would not have blamed you for waiting, nor would he have disgraced you. But I accompanied Allah's Apostle in many battles and it was his custom that if he did not fight early by daytime, he would wait till the wind had started blowing and the time for the prayer was due (i.e. after midday)."
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 5.377Narrated byJabir bin Abdullah
On the day of the battle of Uhud, a man came to the Prophet and said, "Can you tell me where I will be if I should get martyred?" The Prophet replied, "In Paradise." The man threw away some dates he was carrying in his hand, and fought till he was killed.
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 7.629Narrated byAbu Huraira
The Prophet said, "He (a Muslim) who dies of an abdominal disease is a martyr, and he who dies of plague is a martyr."
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 5.379Narrated byZaid bin Thabit
When we wrote the Holy Qur'an, I missed one of the Verses of Surat-al-Ahzab which I used to hear Allah's Apostle reciting. Then we searched for it and found it with Khuzaima bin Thabit Al-Ansari. The Verse was:
-Among the Believers are men Who have been true to Their Covenant with Allah, Of them, some have fulfilled Their obligations to Allah (i.e. they have been matryred in Allah's Cause), And some of them are (still) waiting." (33.23) So we wrote this in its place in the Qur'an.
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 8.417 Narrated by Abu Hurraira
"Allah's Messenger said, 'Allah has some angels who look for those who think about Allah while they're out [fighting in Jihad] and they encircle them with their wings.
Allah [who hears all] asks these angels, 'What do my slaves say?' The angels reply, 'Allahu Akbar!'
Allah [who sees all] asks, 'Can they see Me?' The angels answer, 'No. They can't see you.'
Allah [who knows all] says, 'How would it have been if they had seen Me?' 'If they had seen You [one spirit said to another] they would have worshiped you more.'
Allah [who created a brothel] asks, 'What do they desire?' 'They ask for your Paradise.' 'Have they seen it?' 'No. But if they had they would covet it all the more.' 'What do they fear?' 'Hell Fire.' 'Have they seen it?' 'No. If they had seen it they would flee it with extreme fear.' Allah said, 'I will not reduce every Companion to misery.'"
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said, "He who dies of an illness dies as a martyr, or he will be guarded from the trial in the grave, and will have his provision brought him morning and evening from Paradise."
Ibn Majah and Bayhaqi, in Shu'ab al-Iman, transmitted it.
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 3834Narrated byAl-Miqdam ibn Ma'dikarib
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said, "The martyr receives six good things from Allah: he is forgiven at the first shedding of his blood; he is shown his abode in Paradise; he is preserved from the punishment in the grave; he is kept safe from the greatest terror; he has placed on his head the crown of honour, a ruby of which is better than the world and what it contains; he is married to seventy-two wives of the maidens with large dark eyes; and is made intercessor for seventy of his relatives."
Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah transmitted it.
*** With such incredible rewards, it is not a great wonder that many very stupid and gullible followers of Muhammad can be so easily influenced and brainwashed as to believe that by commiting suicide by blowing themselves up, that they would attain such pleasures and splendours, that they could NEVER achieve in real life.
Unfortunately for those SUICIDE BOMBERS,those who are INDOCTRINATING them do not bother to tell them that according to BOTH the Quran and Hadiths, Martyrdom is achieved ONLY in BATTLE and that those who commit Suicide end up in HELL.
The maidens with large eyes that are alluded to, are the same ones mentioned in numerous verses of the Quran, but those who commit SUICIDE willNEVER taste their lips***
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4634
"The Messenger of Allah said, 'Nobody who dies and has something good for him with Allah will (like to) return even though he were offered the whole world and all that is in it (as an inducement), except the martyr who desires to return and be killed for the merit of martyrdom.'"
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4635
"The Prophet said: 'Nobody who enters Paradise wants return even if he were offered everything on the surface of the earth except the martyr who will desire to return and be killed ten times for the sake of the great honor that has been bestowed upon him.'"
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4645Narrated byAbuSa'id al-Khudri
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said (to him): AbuSa'id, whoever cheerfully accepts Allah as his Lord, Islam as his religion and Muhammad as his Apostle is necessarily entitled to enter Paradise. He (AbuSa'id) wondered at it and said: Messenger of Allah, repeat it for me. He (the Messenger of Allah) did that and said:
There is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade one hundred (higher), and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal to the height of the heaven from the earth.
He (AbuSa'id) said: What is that act? He replied:
Jihad in the way of Allah! Jihad in the way of Allah!
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4649Narrated byAmr ibn al-'As
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: All the sins of a Shahid (martyr) are forgiven except debt.
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4651Narrated byAbdullah
It has been narrated on the authority of Masruq who said: We asked Abdullah about the Qur'anic verse: "Think not of those who are slain in Allah's way as dead. Nay, they are alive, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord...." (iii.169). He said: We asked the meaning of the verse (from the Holy Prophet) who said: The souls of the martyrs live in the bodies of green birds who have their nests in chandeliers hung from the throne of the Almighty. They eat the fruits of Paradise wherever they like and then nestle in these chandeliers. Once their Lord cast a glance at them and said: Do ye want anything? They said: What more can we desire? We eat the fruit of Paradise wherever we like. Their Lord asked them the same question thrice. When they saw that they would continue to be asked and not left (without answering the question), they said: O Lord, we wish that Thou mayest return our souls to our bodies so that we may be slain in Thy cause once again. When He (Allah) saw that they had no need, they were left (to their joy in heaven).
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4678Narrated by Jabir
"Proof Of The Martyr's Attaining Paradise: Jabir said that a man said, 'Messenger of Allah, where shall I be if I am killed?' He replied: 'In Paradise.' The man threw away the dates he had in his hand and fought until he was killed."
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4681Narrated byAbdullah ibn Qays
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Surely, the gates of Paradise are under the shadows of the swords. A man in a shabby condition got up and said: AbuMusa, did you hear the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) say this? He said: Yes. (The narrator said): He returned to his friends and said: I greet you (a farewell greeting). Then he broke the sheath of his sword, threw it away, advanced with his (naked) sword towards the enemy and fought (them) with it until he was slain.
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4690Narrated byAbdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: A troop of soldiers who fight in the way of Allah and get their share of the booty receive in advance two-thirds of their reward in the Hereafter and only one-third will remain (to their credit). If they do not receive any booty, they will get their full reward.
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4691
"Muhammad said: 'A troop of soldiers, large or small, who fight get their share of the booty and return safe and sound, receive in advance two-thirds of their reward; and a troop of soldiers who return empty-handed and are afflicted or wounded will receive their full reward.'"
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4706Narrated byAbuHurayrah
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Whom do you consider to be a martyr among you? They (the Companions) said: Messenger of Allah, one who is slain in the way of Allah is a martyr. He said: Then (if this is the definition of a martyr) the martyrs of my Ummah will be small in number. They asked: Messenger of Allah, who are they? He said: One who is slain in the way of Allah is a martyr; one who dies in the way of Allah is a martyr; one who dies of plague is a martyr; one who dies of cholera is a martyr.
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 5942Narrated byAbuHurayrah
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) was upon the mountain of Hira' and there were along with him AbuBakr, Umar, Uthman, Ali, Talhah, Zubayr, that the mountain stirred; thereupon Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: Be calm, there is none upon you but a Prophet, a Siddiq (the testifier of truth) and a Martyr.

Al-Muwatta Hadith Hadith 21.28 The Martyrs in the Way of Allah
Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu'z-Zinad from al-Araj from Abu Hurayra that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Allah laughs at two men. One of them kills the other, but each of them will enter the Garden: one fights in the way of Allah and is killed, then Allah turns to the killer, so he fights (in the way of Allah) and also becomes a martyr."
Hadith Qudsi Hadith Qudsi 27
We asked Abdullah (i.e. Ibn Masud) about this verse: And do not regard those who have been killed in the cause of Allah (Shaheed) as dead, rather are they alive with their Lord, being provided for (Quran 3:169). He said: We asked about that and the Prophet (pbuh) said: Their souls are in the insides of green birds having lanterns suspended from the Throne, roaming freely in Paradise where they please, then taking shelter in those lanterns. So their Lord cast a glance at them and said: Do you wish for anything? They said: What shall we wish for when we roam freely in Paradise where we please? And thus did He do to them three times. When they say that they would not be spared from being asked [again], they said: O Lord, we would like for You to put back our souls into our bodies so that we might fight for Your sake once again. And when He saw that they were not in need of anything they were let be.
*** Although Muhammad's 'trip' to the Seven Heavens is recorded in great detail in the Hadiths, not one of them mentions any of the extra 'trimmings' and 'icing on the cake' and 'gems' that Muhammad created for his gullible listeners.

Ibn Rushd about the meaning of Jihad-
"The word Jihad when it is uttered means to fight the unbelievers with the sword, until they accept islam, or pay the Jizzya by hand in a state of humiliation." He is of course quoting from the Quran 9:29.
***It is unfortunate as well as loathsome - and a distinctly Muhammadan construct - that the concept of martyrdom has been misinterpreted and deliberately twisted to include persons who murder or kill others viewed as enemies of the faith by deliberately committing suicide and blowing themselves and their victims up***
Ishaq:208"Uhud commanded the Apostles archers. He was killed in the battle of Yemen as a martyr. Abu was present at all of the Apostle's battles and died in Byzantine territory as a martyr. Mu'adh was present at every raid. He was killed at Badr as a martyr. Mu'awwidh, his brother, shared the same glory. Umara was at every battle and died a martyr in Yemen. As'ad died before Badr when the Prophet's mosque was being built. The Apostle put Amr in command of the rearguard. He died at Uhud as a martyr. Abdallah led many raids and was slain as a martyr at Muta. He was one of Muhammad's commanders. Khallad fought at Badr, Uhud, and Khandaq. He was martyred fighting the [Jewish] Qurayza. The Apostle said that he would have the reward of two martyrs."
Ishaq:306"When the Allah's Apostle said, '70,000 of my followers shall enter Paradise like the full moon,' Ukkasha asked if he could be one of them. Then a lesser Ansari asked to be included, but the Prophet replied, 'Ukkasha beat you to it and my prayer is now cold.'"
Ishaq:388"Abu Qasim [Muhammad] said, 'I testify concerning these that all wounded for Allah's sake will be raised with his wounds bleeding, the color of blood, the smell of musk. Look for the one who has remembered the most surahs and put him in front of his Companions in one mass grave.'"
Ishaq:397"There is no escape from death, so death for Allah's sake in battle is better than all one can amass in life while holding back from fighting in fear of death. Let not the world deceive you and be not deceived by it. Let fighting and the reward which Allah holds out to you be the most important thing."
Ishaq:400"'If our fellow Muslims knew what Allah has done for us they would not dislike fighting or shrink from war!' And Allah said, 'I will tell them of you,' so He sent down to His Apostle these verses."
Ishaq:400"One whom I do not suspect told me that he was asked about these verses and he said, 'We asked Muhammad about them and we were told that when our brethren were slain at Uhud Allah put their spirits in the crops of green birds which come down to the rivers of the Garden and eat of its fruits. They say, "We should like our spirits to return to our bodies and then return to the earth and fight for You until we are killed again.'"
Ishaq:400"The Apostle swore that there was no believer who had parted from the world and wanted to return to it for a single hour even if he could possess it with all it has except the martyr who would like to return and fight for Allah and be killed a second time."
Ishaq:468"Then Allah said, 'Some of you have fulfilled your vow to Me by dying; you have finished your work and returned to Me like those who sought martyrdom in prior battles. And some are still waiting to capitalize on Allah's promise of martyrdom. You do not hesitate in your religion and never doubt.'"
Ishaq:469"On the day the Qurayza Jews were slain, one Muslim was martyred. A stone was thrown on him and it inflicted a shattering wound. The Apostle said, 'He will have the reward of two martyrs.'"
Ishaq:518"Masud was one of those who found martyrdom at Khaybar. Muhammad said, 'He has with him now his two dark-eyed virgins. When a martyr is slain, his two virgins pet him, wiping the dust from his face. They say, "May Allah throw dust on the face of the man who did this to you, and slay him who slew you!"'"
Ishaq:533"Abdallah Rawahah encouraged the men, saying, 'By Allah, what you loathe is the very thing you came out to seek-martyrdom. We are not fighting the enemy with number, strength, or multitude, but we are fighting them with this religion with which Allah has honored us. So come on! Both prospects are fine: victory or martyrdom.'"
Tabari VII:55"Allah's Messenger went out to his men and incited them to fight. He promised, 'Every man may keep all the booty he takes.' Then Muhammad said, 'By Allah, if any man fights today and is killed fighting aggressively, going forward and not retreating, Allah will cause him to enter Paradise.' Umayr said, 'Fine, fine. This is excellent! Nothing stands between me and my entering Paradise except to be killed by these people!' He seized his sword, and fought until he was slain."
Tabari VIII:46"Akhram said, 'If you believe in Allah and know that Paradise is real and that the Fire is real, don't stand between me and martyrdom!' But Abd-Rahman dismounted and thrust his spear into Akhram. So I shot Abd-Rahman with an arrow, and said, 'Take that!'"
*** Muhammad's Allah, the alleged most Compassionate & Merciful,PREDESTINES humanity to end up either in Hell or in Paradise without ever having the FREE WILL to choose.
Since those who end up in Hell had no choice in the first place, then they are INNOCENT of any and all of their acts; yet Muhammad's Allah, the most Compassionate & Merciful, sends them to be eternally tormented in his Hell ***
