"Would you put somebody that you hate the most in hell to burn for ETERNITY?" -- Humans have emotions that may sway them away from justice.. and even cause them to do injustices (as history has shown many times) but God is above that. Alhamdulillah. [I doubt you'd want your child to be put into jail for life if he/she commits a crime (out of sympathy) but ...

When people die, they stay between this life and afterlife. It's called Barzakh. Al-Barzakh is generally viewed as the barrier between the physical and spiritual worlds, in which the soul awaits after death and before resurrection on Qiyamah (Judgement Day). At the state of Barzakh, people get questioned, showed what they did in their life and ...

I'll address the question of eternal hell. The most dominant position does seem to be that eternal torture in hell is a just punishment. I don't remember reading of someone who calls hell a mercy to its inhabitants. Of course, eternal torture clashes with the notion of mercy. More than that though, it also clashes with the notion of justice - if you are ...

Paradise cannot be inside current universe of us living in it. Because size of only one garden of one believer in paradise is larger than earth and all the skies (considering our universe is only the first sky). And hasten to forgiveness from your Lord and a garden as wide as the heavens and earth, prepared for the righteous http://tanzil.net/#3:133 ...

I believe this refers to intercession (i.e., asking Allah to remove someone from hell); another version of the hadith highlights this: That the Messenger of Allah said: "There are six things with Allah for the martyr. He is forgiven with the first flow of blood (he suffers), he is shown his place in Paradise, he is protected from punishment in the grave, ...

Jahannam (Hellfire) is not eternal for all those who enter it. Some stay in there forever and ever, and some are admitted into Jannah after they have fulfilled their punishment period. Satan is of the group that stays there forever and ever. It follows that Jahannam is eternal. Eternity in Hellfire There are numerous verses about a group of people staying ...

A person who dies on disbelief will enter hell-fire, and will not be forgiven. إن الله لا يغفر أن يشرك به Indeed, Allah does not forgive shirk with Him — Quran 4:48 إن الذين كفروا وصدوا عن سبيل الله ثم ماتوا وهم كفار فلن يغفر الله لهم Indeed, those who disbelieved and averted [people] from the path of Allah and then died while they ...

What happens to people who have never heard of Islam? Those who have never heard of Islam will not be punished for their sins if they died in the state of disbelief. Allah says (what means): 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. ...

To answer this question we should go through who shouldn't go to Jannah (Paradise) and define some terms. The ones that are deemed to not enter Jannah are the Kuffar (Kafir). This list could be made longer, but the kafir is the one that is deemed without hesitation. Now who is a kafir? According to this answer: A kaffir is somone who disbelives even ...

Allah didn't predestine John or any other person to hell or heaven. He knows in His vast knowledge that Jhon who has a free will, will commit actions that will send him to hell. He doesn't dictate it. He is not forcing Jhon to do bad deeds. His knowledge is so vast that He knows well in advance what Jhon is going to do. Here's an example. Not a good one ...

This is the hadith you are referring to: There is no one whom Allah will admit to Paradise but Allah will marry him to seventy-two wives, two from houris and seventy from his inheritance from the people of Hell, all of whom will have desirable front passages and he will have a male member that never becomes flaccid (i.e., soft and limp). ما من أحد ...

Accepting Islam is the single most important criterion that defines how any other deeds beyond that will be perceived. Allah informs us in the Qur'an that there is only one religion, which is Islam, and that anyone who does not follow Islam (even if it is not to follow anything at all) will be among the losers on the Day of Judgment: وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ ...

Note that Noah's wife is only mentioned in this unique verse in the Quran, while we can read a lot about Noah's effort for da'wah in the surah Nuh, we can also read about his son -who was a disbeliever- and didn't go on board of the arch (long parts of surat Hud are mentioning the story of Noah). So what do mufasirin say about this verse? This is taken ...

The Hadith you mentioned talks about the 70000 who will enter paradise without being brought into account. And they are the best people from this ummah. However, the total number of people going to paradise from this ummah is known only to Allah (SWT). The reason why those 70000 will not be the only one is because: There is good news for all of us ...

No The following Hadith from Sahih Bukhari is the basis. ...but by Allah, I do not know what Allah will do with me though I am Allah's Apostle.... (Source Bukhari Volume 2, Book 23, Number 334 ) What can be said about the people I mentioned ? Well, the people who haven't heard of Islam will be tested on the Final day (Full post here). But those who heard ...

No. Allah won't punish all non-Muslims for their beliefs. Allah almighty, may he be exalted, says in the Quran (interpretation of the meaning): 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 ...

This is -in my opinion- a great hadith, which shows the importance of the intention and the narrow path between hypocrisy and sincerity (devotion) in the acts! This hadith is to be found in sahih Muslim in the Chapter "One who fights to show off and gain a reputation deserves Hell" ... which already gives a hint about the meaning! The quintessence: is you'...

"Good deeds" without conscious of God is not regarded as "good deeds" in Islam, that's where the confusion lies. Source: In Islam you are not judged based on actions, rather based on intention. Al-Baqara: Verse 225: لَا يُؤَاخِذُكُمُ اللَّهُ بِاللَّغْوِ فِي أَيْمَانِكُمْ وَلَٰكِنْ يُؤَاخِذُكُمْ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ قُلُوبُكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ حَلِيمٌ ...

No, in Islam one does not automatically go to Paradise for being a believer, Allah judges people based on their balance of good and bad deeds measured on the proverbial scale (ref this verse and this one), though belief is a pre-condition to admittance to Paradise(ref). In the Quran, Allah promises paradise to those who believe (آمَنُو) and do righteous ...

Kuffar (disbelievers) remain in Hell forever. This is expressed in the Quran in multiple places in multiple ways e.g: إن تستغفر لهم سبعين مرة فلن يغفر الله لهم ذلك بأنهم كفروا بالله ورسوله If you should ask forgiveness for them seventy times - never will Allah forgive them. That is because they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger. — Quran 9:...

There's lots of untruths attributed to Ibn Taymiyyah (rh). We can see from some of his writings that he did acknowledge that Hell is eternal. One such source is the following: "The Salaf of the Ummah and its leading scholars, and all of Ahl al-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah are agreed that there are from the created things those which will not cease to exist, and ...

1) That is his excuse, that Allah made him deaf thus he was not able to hear his message. There are many reasons Allah could have made him deaf among which are to test those around him (would they help him?). You will surely be tested in your possessions and your souls, and you will surely hear from those who were given the Book before you and from the ...

We have evidence of the Prophet (SAW) seeing the people of Paradise and Hell-fire: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "I looked at Paradise and saw that the majority of its residents were the poor; and I looked at the (Hell) Fire and saw that the majority of its residents were women." (Sahih Bukhari) We also know the gates to paradise (and by extension also Hell) ...

Why people suffer is directly addressed in the Qur'an: it's part of being tested prior to the afterlife. And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient, Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return." Those ...

Bismillah, You mentioned a very good point at the beginning of your question. Jinns can obey or disobey the commands of Allah (SWT). For the disbelievers (Kuffar) among the Jinn, they will be in Hell والعياذ بالله Allah (SWT) says in Surat Al-A'raaf (#179) And in Surat Hud (#119) So, there is no doubt that the disbelievers (Kuffar), whether among Humans ...

Whether you are going to Heaven or hell depends on what you have done with your life, all the good deeds you have done. If willingly give your soul to the evil, which is more like a suicide, you will end up in hell.

Oh, what it is claimed would definitely be wrong as: we have heard of people kidnapping children and sacrificing them to the evil for their selfish purpose...and also we heard of the illuminati ...they also are sacrificing people to the evil.. My question is that If someone kidnaps me by force... and they sacrifice me (killed me) Would I go to ...

Lets see what the Qur'an says: "Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve." Qur'an (2:62) " Surely those who believe and those who are Jews and the Sabians ...
