Myth vs Fact

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. Malik’s Muwatta Book 21, Number 21.14.33:

Yahya related to me from Malik that Yahya ibn Said said, “The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was sitting by a grave which was being dug at Madina. A man looked into the grave and said, ‘An awful bed for the mumin. ‘The Messenger of Allah, may Allah blesshim and grant him peace, said, ‘Evil? What you have said is absolutely wrong.’

The man said, ‘I didn’t mean that, Messenger of Allah. I meant being killed in the way of Allah.’ The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, ‘Being killed in the way of Allah has no like! There is no place on the earth which I would prefer my grave to be than here (meaning Madina). He repeated it three times.’ “
