As I know, islam says the other religious followers will be sent to hell.

But my simple question is, there are many people around the world (from Amazon forest, etc..) who even doesn't know who Allah is and what islam is. So if they are also sent to hell then that's not fair. Could you please someone explain to me on this.

As I heard islam says Allah has done everything on or for a purpose. So what's the purpose of creating some people in a forest (where even they don't know what islam or who Allah is), and at the end they are sent to hell, just because they follow some other god defined by their tribes?

  • They were created to worship Allah by at first realizing that He created everything. – Medi1Saif Nov 24 '19 at 16:55
  • @Medi1Saif How do they worship without knowing Allah is there? – Explorer Nov 24 '19 at 16:56

  • @Loading... so it seems though Allah is the creater of the world he accepts that he is unable to share Islam with all people of the world. – Explorer Nov 25 '19 at 2:08

    What Allah does is not a limitation on what He can do. It is not binding on Allah to share Islam with everyone, and He has a way to test and judge the Ahl al-Fatrah. – UmH Nov 25 '19 at 10:38

First of all how did you know that these parts of the world have no Muslims ? or at leas some that knows about Islam ? (you are just assuming without any facts) especially that today communication methods are easily and in everyone's hand.

Second, ALLAH will only ask people who received Islam in a way or another and didn't believe, the ones who didn't reach Islam by any mean or Islam reached them but not correct and deformed by any mean wither will be tested in judgment day or it is said that they will not be punished according to many scholars such as (Al-Ghazali). This was taken according to these two verses:

Whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] his soul. And whoever errs only errs against it. And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And never would We punish until We sent a messenger. (Surt Israa - 15)

مَّنِ اهْتَدَىٰ فَإِنَّمَا يَهْتَدِي لِنَفْسِهِ ۖ وَمَن ضَلَّ فَإِنَّمَا يَضِلُّ عَلَيْهَا ۚ وَلَا تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٌ وِزْرَ أُخْرَىٰ ۗ وَمَا كُنَّا مُعَذِّبِينَ حَتَّىٰ نَبْعَثَ رَسُولًا (15 الاسراء )

It almost bursts with rage. Every time a company is thrown into it, its keepers ask them, "Did there not come to you a warner?" [8] They will say," Yes, a warner had come to us, but we denied and said, ' Allah has not sent down anything. You are not but in great error.' " [9] (surt Al-Mulk 8-9)

كُلَّمَا أُلْقِيَ فِيهَا فَوْجٌ سَأَلَهُمْ خَزَنَتُهَا أَلَمْ يَأْتِكُمْ نَذِيرٌ . قالُوا بَلَى قَدْ جَاءَنَا نَذِيرٌ فَكَذَّبْنَا (سورة الملك : 8،9).

Third don't forget that, ALLAH said:

وَلَوْ شَاء رَبُّكَ لآمَنَ مَن فِي الأَرْضِ كُلُّهُمْ جَمِيعاً أَفَأَنتَ تُكْرِهُ النَّاسَ حَتَّى يَكُونُوا مُؤْمِنِينَ (سورة يونس - 99)

And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed - all of them entirely. Then, [O Muhammad], would you compel the people in order that they become believers?

So, the purpose is ALLAH's will and these are his creatures, and that is enough.

  • The communication is good today, not 100 years ago, people die 100 years ago too. And its very clear that those tribes in Amazon haven’t met any messanger, and I personally know some of similar kind of tribes in other asian countries, they don’t even heard the word islam or Allah. – Explorer Nov 25 '19 at 2:03
  • my answer includes people who lived in 100 years ago and people who lived now, and people who had no messenger, and people who had, and people who received Islam by some way, and people who didn't receive Islam or received it deformed. – user35194 Nov 25 '19 at 8:48
  • Ok, So I'm not a muslim. I haven't heard the message from the messenger yet. So I hope I will be excluded from the list. – Explorer Nov 25 '19 at 8:50
  • so you are trying to find a way to not be questioned about no being Muslim ? you Ignore that I said (received Islam in a way or another) .. and apparently you received it and know about it because you are chatting with me about it .. so you will be questioned about it – user35194 Nov 25 '19 at 8:54

Islam is sent for the whole humanity,

And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds. (Al-Anbya 21:107, https://quran.com/21/107)

... Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind. (Sahih Bukhari, https://sunnah.com/bukhari/7)

What about other people that you think never heard about Islam? They were sent messengers too

Whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] his soul. And whoever errs only errs against it. And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And never would We punish until We sent a messenger. (Al-Isra 17:15, https://quran.com/17/15)

And We did not send any messenger except [speaking] in the language of his people to state clearly for them, and Allah sends astray [thereby] whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise. (Ibrahim 14:4, https://quran.com/14/4)

Are those messengers Muslims? Yes they are Muslims (one who submits themselves to Allah)

If those forest people dont follow their messenger(s) then they are astrayed

Will they go to hell? only Allah knows because the rulings through their messenger with the rulings through Muhammad maybe different

  • how do these quotes answer my question. Please elaborate – Explorer Nov 24 '19 at 18:12
  • @Explorer I've edited the answer – Rafid Nov 24 '19 at 18:17
  • so people living in Amazon won't be punished for praying some other god as the messanger is not yet sent to them, is that what you meant? – Explorer Nov 24 '19 at 18:20

    @Explorer Thats already clear, if those people don't follow their messenger(s) then they are astrayed (the messenger here is not Muhammad, since you assume they never heard anything about Muhammad). Will they go to hell? only Allah knows because the rulings through their messenger with the rulings through Muhammad maybe different. – Rafid Nov 24 '19 at 18:32

    @Explorer As per Islam, all nations & tribes (including those in the Amazon) have had messengers sent to them in the past. How many of them believed and how many of them rejected is a matter of Unseen for us today. – Ahmed Dec 25 '19 at 9:51
