- His sins will be forgiven upon the first drop of his blood, i.e. he will see his place in Jannat.
- He will receive protection from the punishment of the grave.
- He will be in security from the great fear, i.e. Day of Judgment.
- A crown of honor will be placed on his head.
- One I’llhy from this crown is better than the world and all it L'( lI11ains..’).IIc will marry 72 wives from the hoors.
- Lie will intercede on the behalf of 70 of his relatives.
- Ill’ will be made to wear clothes of lmaan (faith). (Tirmidhi, Ahmad, Tabrani)
Abu Hurairah narrates that someone mentioned the martyrs by RasUlullfth and he said, “Before the ground can dry from the blood of the martyr, his two wives rush to him as if they are a breast-feeding camel who has found her lost child in an empty and barren land. Each woman will have a pair of clothes in her hand which will be better than the world and all it contains. ” (Ibn Abi Shaybah, Ibn Majah)
Mujahid narrates that Yazid bin Shajarah – one of those people whos~ actions agree with their speech delivered a khutbah (sermon) and said, “When the people are arranged in rows for Salah and when they are arranged in ranks for combat, the doors of Jannat opened and the doors of hellfire are locked. The Hoors beautify themselves and watch the battle. When a person heads towards the enemy, they make dua’ (invocation) to Allah to help him. When a person runs away from the enemy, they conceal themselves from him and make dua’ to Allah to forgive him and to destroy the enemy. The Hoors say to the fighters, ‘May our parents be sacrificed for YOII, don’t disgrace us.’ The first drop which is spilled 01 the fighter’s blood wipes out all his previous sins. His two wives from the Hoors come down to him and wipe the dill from his face. They say to him, ‘May we be scarified for you.’ He says to them, “May I also be Sacrificed for you. (Tabrani)
Anas narrates that a black man came to Prophet (Pbuh) and said, “0 Messenger of Allah; I am a black man with bad body odor and an ugly face. I c1on’t have any wealth. If I fight against these people until l am killed, where will I be? Prophet (Pbuh) said, “In Janna1.” So he fought until he was killed. The Prophet came to him and said, ” Indeed Allah has brightened your face, made a good smell emerge from your body, and has increased your wealth.” The Prophet said to him or to someone else, “Definitely I saw his wife from the Hoors take off his wool cloak and come between him and his cloak. (Hakim)
Battle.” He then asked, “Are they acquiring wealth?” Someone told him, “Yes. They are acquiring booty and afterwards it is distributed among them. “He immediately went to his young camel, tied a rope to its leg, and joined Prophet (Pbuh) and his Companions. He tried to bring his camel close to Prophet (Pbuh) but the Companions prevented him. Prophet (Pbuh) thereafter said, “Allow the person from Najd to come closer to me, because – by the oath of Allah – he is from the kings of Jannah.” The Bedouin then fought the enemy in the battle and was killed. The Prophet was informed about him and came to him. He sat by his head smiling happily, and then he turned away. We said, “0 Messenger of Allah. We saw you smiling happily, and then you turned away.” He said, “I was happy because of the great honor of his soul to Allah Ta’la, and I turned away because his wife from the Hoors is by him now.
