The benefit of a difficult death for some Mu-mins

Chapter No.: 

1. Sayyidina Ibn Mas'ud Radiyallahu ‘Anhu says, Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam said: "(At times) A Mu-min (believer) commits a sin. Hardship is experienced at the time of death to recompense for sins. (At times) A kaafir (nonbeliever) carries out a good deed, and to recompense for it, an easy death is granted." – Tabrani, Abu Nu‘aym, Sharhus Sudur.


Experiencing a difficult death is not a bad omen nor is an easy death a good omen. No doubt should remain regarding a difficult death as stated in the above hadith.
