Whoever dies of appendicitis or cirrhosis of the liver is a shaheed (martyr)

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
It was narrated in the hadeeth that the mabtoon (one who dies of an abdominal disease) is a shaheed. What is the meaning of the word mabtoon? Does it include one who dies of cirrhosis of the liver?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

Concerning the word mabtoon, the scholars said: one who dies of an abdominal disease. The apparent meaning is that this would include one who dies of appendicitis because it is one of the abdominal diseases that can kill. It may also include those who die of cirrhosis of the liver, because this is also a abdominal disease that can kill.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
