Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is drifting and overspeeding of a car haraam. Because recently my friends met with and accident and two of them died. My other question is that I heard that you will be risen on the day of judgement the way you die. How far is this true?



1. One should ensure that one does not drive in a way that one endangers one’s life and the lives of others.

2. If one was not negligent and met in an accident, then one will not be sinful and instead one will receive the rank of shahaadat.

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