As Salamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah 1. I wanted to know if there are any signs defined in the Quran and Sunnah for a Good Death ? some people said that if you die when doing any good deed then thats a good sign. 2. I heard that if a person dies due to stomach problem then that person dies as shaheed. If a person dies due to cancer in the liver or any cancer in general is that also considered shaheed?

One should always pray for steadfastness on the pure faith of Islam and death believing in the oneness of Allah and believing in His Messenger Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihe Wa Sallam) and the Last Day.

1- There are no particular signs described as signs of good death in Shariah.

2- The one who dies due to a stomach problem is considered a martyr in terms of Hereafter. There are certain other people included in the category of martyers as well. The true martyr is that who dies in the path of Allah while defending His religion. Others who are included in this category are martyrs in terms if Hereafter.

And Allah knows best.
