The martyr does not feel excruciating pain

Question

Is there any Hadith that states a martyr does not feel pain. It is just like an insect bite?

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded the following Hadith:

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The martyr does not feel the pain of being killed except as one of you feels a bite/pinch.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1668)

 

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahihun gharib).

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
