those who are drowned are considered martyrs. It is authentically reported on the authority of
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
"There are five types of martyrs: The one who dies of plague, the one who dies of a stomach disease, the one who drowns, the one who is crushed by a falling wall, and the one who is killed for the sake of Allah."
