Myth vs Fact #13

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 3:143-147 You did indeed wish for death (Ash­Shahâdah – martyrdom) before you met it. Now you have seen it openly with your own eyes.And no person can ever die except by Allâh’s Leave and at an appointed term. And whoever desires a reward in (this) world, We shall give him of it; and whoever desires a reward in the Hereafter, We shall give him thereof. And We shall reward the grateful. And they said nothing but: “Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and our transgressions (in keeping our duties to You), establish our feet firmly, and give us victory over the disbelieving folk.”

The Wisdom Behind the Losses Muslims Suffered During Uhud

The Rumor that the Prophet was Killed at Uhud

Bottom Line: The full enormity of this ayeh will not sink in until you read and ponder both the tafsir linked above and this hadith.
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 54:

Narrated Abu 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.
