Virtue of passing away through a heart attack

Q: A person died of a heart attack, is it good or bad?

A: It is mentioned in the Mubaarak Ahaadith that the person who pass away through any internal illness (e.g. cancer, heart attack, diabetes) passes away as a shaheed. Hence, passing away through a heart attack is not a sign of an evil death.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
