There's a confusion that the verses below......
And no friend will ask [anything of] a friend, they will be shown each other. The criminal will wish that he could be ransomed from the punishment of that Day by his children......No! Indeed, it is the Flame [of Hell], a remover of exteriors. It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (70:10-17)
They will say, "O woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense." [They will be told], "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." [The angels will be ordered], "Gather those who committed wrong, their kinds, and what they used to worship other than Allah, and guide them to the path of Hellfire. And stop them; indeed, they are to be questioned." [They will be asked], "What is [wrong] with you? Why do you not help each other?" But they, that Day, are in surrender. And they will approach one another blaming each other. They will say, "Indeed, you used to come at us from the right." The oppressors will say, "Rather, you [yourselves] were not believers, And we had over you no authority, but you were a transgressing people. So the word of our Lord has come into effect upon us; indeed, we will taste [punishment]. And we led you to deviation; indeed, we were deviators." (37:20-33)
Other verses like 23:99-103, 31:33 and 80:33-42 are consistent with the first set of verses. The second set relates a conversation the disbelievers will have before entering Hellfire, asking questions from each other. I need help with this confusion.
There's another :
And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And if a heavily laden soul CALLS [another] to [carry some of] its load, nothing of it will be carried, even if he should be a close relative. You can only warn those who fear their Lord unseen and have established prayer. And whoever purifies himself only purifies himself for [the benefit of] his soul. And to Allah is the [final] destination. (35:18)
In this verse, the disbelievers will try to ask their near kinsmen for help. But those other verses are explicit that they won't be able to.
