Notice that regarding the martyrs, the Qur’an says “And they (the martyrs) are happy regarding those [Mo’mineen] who have been left behind [and] haven’t yet joined them; there is no fear upon them and they will not grieve.” [Qur’an 3:170]. This is an announcement. An announcement about what? That they should be free and they are free of two maladies. Meaning, it announces the negation of these two maladies: one is [negative] fear [such as the fear of people] and the other is [negative] grief [such as despair].
