I shall explain afterward, first read another verse of Quran-e-Kareem.

Translation: “And do not ever assume that those who are slain in Allah's cause are dead; in fact they are alive with their Lord, receiving sustenance. Happy over what Allah has bestowed upon them from His grace, and rejoicing for those who will succeed them, and have not yet joined them; for on them is no fear nor any grief. (Al-Imran, 169,170).”
Come on readers, what the Quran has told us about martyred. Translation: “And who are murdered in the way of Allah Almighty, do not call them dead, actually they are alive, but you cannot realize about their life (Al-Baq’Rah)”.
In above both verse, the peoples who were martyred are declared alive. The question arises that both father & son died coincidently, neither had they departed in the way of Allah Almighty nor they murdered then how they attained the status of Martyr? Here keep one thing in mind that there are different levels of
In this verse, those who are murdered in the way of Allah Almighty are declared
Martyr. Muhammad (Sal’Allah-o- Alai’he Wasallum) on arriving back from a Ghazwa ordained (the sense of which is that) depart from minor jihad to major jihad, means fight against your Nafs-eAmm’Aara (one’s baser self), as all those who if die while doing best to purify their Nafs (inner self) are also declared Martyr. Even the girl who dies before getting married (i.e. in bachelorhood) is also given the reward of Martyrdom. Secondly, every person has its own relation with Allah Almighty. Till where my knowledge is, sudden death is also considered as martyrdom. The grave digger told that out of 3000 graves, 07 graves were such which dead bodies were found intact / unspoiled (the reality is best known to Allah Almighty). [Mahnama Balaagh; p49-53]

be given an exceptional life in Aalim-eBurzugh. Often similar incidents like when grave was re-opened, the dead body was found fresh. The narrator of this incident is not surprised upon why the soil preserved the body, but the thing astonishing is that when father’s body was being shifted, suddenly his hand displaced and nails found grown one & half inch long, while at the time of death, nails were cut and very short. Similarly, son’s face was having closely cropped beard which was also found grown many inches long.
