Question

My question is related to death and is
as follow: If a Muslim person dies a
horrible death is that in anyway a
punishment? For example; someone
dies in a car accident or a bombing and
his/her body becomes completely
mutated; is this kind of death a
punishment to that person?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.
Death by fire or by the other ways you
mentioned in the question is not
evidence that it is a punishment of
Allah. Death of every living being is
predetermined, as Allah Says (what
means): {Every soul will taste death}
[Quran 3:185].

The way of everyone's death has already
been written. Sometimes a believer dies
in a car accident and a non-believer
dies while resting on his couch; the fate
of a believer is Paradise while the fate
of the other one is Hellfire.

The Prophet said: "The death of a
believer through a fire or under falling
debris is martyrdom." Once he
enquired, "Who do you consider to be a
martyr?" They said: "O Allah's Prophet,
he who is killed fighting for the cause
of Allah." The Prophet said:
"Martyrs are seven". Then he
mentioned "among the seven categories
the one who dies in fire and the one
who dies under falling debris (in a
disaster)." [Al Bukhari and Muslim]

No doubt, the one who dies in a fire
becomes disfigured and the ribs are
broken of the one who dies under
falling debris and his limbs scatter even
though they are considered among the
martyrs. Sometimes, a person who is in
Jihaad dies due to an explosion and the
like; in spite of that, he is a martyr.
In short, what is being asked in the
question is not evidence of the
punishment of Allah, rather it might be
a supernatural event and martyrdom.
We beg Allah, The Exalted, to bestow
upon us a good end of our lives.
Allah Knows best.
