Death with wudu is martyrdom

Question

I wanted to know what the grade of this Hadith is Sahih, Hasan or Da’if and whether it’s allowed to practice upon:

One should try to be in the state of wudu all the time. He who passes away in the state of wudu dies as a Shahid (martyr) (Majmauz zawaid, vol.1 pg. 271 and Fathul Malikil ‘Aliy, pg.35)

 

Answer

This is part of a lengthy Hadith which is reported with several weak chains, that adequately support each other.

This Hadith is acceptable and can be quoted.

References:

Musnad Abi Ya’la, Hadith: 4277 and 4612, Al-Mu’jamus Saghir, vol.2 pg.32-33, Tarikh Ibn ‘Asakir, vol.9 pg.340-345 -Darul Fikr, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol.1 pg.271-272, Al-Kafish Shaff, pg.120-121, Ithaful Kiyarah, Hadith: 796/ vol.1 pg.416-418 Mukhtasar Ithaf, Hadith: 8075 and 8076, and Fathul Malikil ‘Aliy, pg.35.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
