In the name of Allaah, The Mighty, The Majestic. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, companios and those who follow them in goodness until the day of Resurrection. As for what follows; O' mankind! Fear Allaah, the Most High, and fear the Hell-Fire that has been prepared for the disbelievers! Obey Allaah and the Messenger, may peace and blessings be upon him, so that perhaps you will be shown mercy! Protect yourselves from it by implementing the Commandments of Allaah and refraining from His Prohibitions because there is no salvation for you except by doing so. Fear the Fire! Indeed it is an abode of evil, misery and severe torment. An abode of those who do not believe in Allaah and the Last Day. Its inhabitants are the worst creation of Allaah from the devils and their followers. Allaah, the Most High says: "The Truth is, and the Truth I say, That I will fill Hell with you [Iblis (Satan)] and those of them (mankind) that follow you, together."[38:8485] It is the abode of Fir'aun, Haamaan, Qaaroon, Ubay ibn Khalaf and other than them from the tyrannicals and criminals. If you ask about its location, then it is in the lowest of the low and the farthest from the Lord of the Worlds. Their food will be zaqqoom which is a horrible tree that doesn't nourish nor aid against hunger. The Messenger, may peace and blessings be upon him, said: Fear Allaah the way he deserves to be feared. For if a speck of the zaqqoom tree were to be dropped in the oceans of the world it would destroy the living condition of the people of earth. This will be their food when they become hungry. Then once they eat from it they will become extremely thirsty. Allaah says: Verily, We have prepared for the (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.), a Fire whose walls will be surrounding them. And if they ask for help (relief, water, etc.) they will be granted water like boiling oil, that will scald their faces. Terrible the drink, and an evil resting place![18:29] It is like boiling oil that will melt the skin of their faces. Once they drink it out of dire necessity their intestines will be severed. This will be their drink as Allaah says: He will sip it unwillingly, and he will find a great difficulty to swallow it down his throat, and death will come to him from every side, yet he will not die and in front of him, will be a great torment.[14:17]

As for their clothing, then it will be made from fire as Allaah says: Their garments will be of flames, and fire will cover their faces.[14:50] This clothing will not protect them from the heat of Hell rather it will intensify it. Allaah says: Then as for those who disbelieved, garments of fire will be cut out for them and boiling water will be poured down over their heads. With it will melt away what is within their bellies, as well as (their) skins. And for them are hooked rods of iron (to punish them). Every time they seek to get away therefrom, from anguish, they will be driven back therein, and (it will be) said to them: "Taste the torment of burning!"[22:19-22] O' Slaves of Allaah; Fear the Hell-Fire, its heat is unbearable, it is sixty-nine times worst than the fire of this world. Allaah says: The criminals will roast therein and there We shall burn them in the Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste the punishment.[4:56] The flames will throw them to the utmost part of Hell and everytime they wish to exit therefrom they will be cast back down into it and it will be said to them: Taste the torment of the Fire which you used to belie.[34:42] Their torment will be eternal as Allaah says: The torment will not be lightened for them, and they will be plunged into destruction with deep regrets, sorrows and in despair therein.[43:75] They shall never rest in it and they will ask to be destroyed even if it be for a minute however they won't be responded to. They will say to the gaurdians of Hell: Call upon your Lord to lighten for us the torment for a day![40:49]

The angels will respond: Did there not come to you, your Messengers with (clear) evidences and signs? They will say: "Yes." They will reply: "Then call (as you like)! And the invocation of the disbelievers is nothing but in error![40:50] Because they failed to answer the call of the Messengers when they invited them to Allaah, the Most High, so the recompense will be similar. They will say: "Our Lord! Our wretchedness overcame us, and we were (an) erring people."Our Lord! Bring us out of this; if ever we return (to evil), then indeed we shall be wrong-doers[23:106-107] Allaah will say to them: "Remain you in it with ignominy! And speak you not to Me!" [23:108] At that point they will despair foreveron from all good and realize that they will remain therein for eternity and thus they will increase in sorrow and regret. Allaah says: And those who followed will say: "If only we had one more chance to return (to the worldly life), we would disown them as they have disowned us." Thus Allah will show them their deeds as regrets for them. And they will never get out of the Fire. [2:167] And Allaah says: Wherein they will abide forever, and they will find neither a Wali (a protector) nor a helper. On the Day when their faces will be turned over in the Fire, they will say: "Oh, would that we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger!"[33:65-66] O' slaves of Allaah! Fear the Fire for its bottom is deep and its siezure is severe. Abu Hurayrah, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: We were with the Messenger, may peace and blessings be upon, one day and we heard a wajbah (thump) so the Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him, said: Do you know what that thump was? We said: Allaah and His Messenger know best. He said: It was a rock that was thrown in Hell seventy years ago and it just reached its bottom. [Muslim]

When Hell sees its inhabitants from a far they will hear its raging and roaring. And when they are cast into it they will hear the terrible drawing in of its breath as it blazes forth. It is indeed a terrifying abode. What do you think its going to do with those who enter into it? O' slaves of Allaah! Fear the Fire and beware of being from its inhabitants. Allaah has clarified to you the characteristics of its people and the people of paradise in summary and in detail. ...in order that mankind should have no plea against Allaah after the Messengers.[4:165] Allaah, the Most High, says: Then, for him who transgressed all bounds, in disbelief, oppression and evil deeds of disobedience to Allaah. And preferred the life of this world (by following his evil desires and lusts), verily, his abode will be Hellfire.[79:37-41] O' Allaah we ask you for salavation from the Fire and success in the ever-lasting abode.
