Future heaven hell shown to Prophet (saws)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.

My dear and beloved Brother, never has it ever happened in the annuls of the history of mankind that when a true believer started to invite others to the Straight Path of Allah he was not ridiculed or abused by those who do not wish to listen to good caution! This ridicule and abuse at the hands of the arrogant is nothing but the reward in the life of this world of those who truly work in the Noble Cause of Allah, and a trial of patience and perseverance for the believers from their All-Knowing, All-Wise! Even the Noble Prophets of Allah were not spared from this welcome from those who arrogantly disbelieved in their Message; but with patience and perseverance they stayed steadfast on the Straight Path seeking their reward from none, except their Lord Most Gracious.
The hard time that you are getting from the people you wish to invite to the Path of Allah is a sign that you are calling them to the Truth! Thus follow the example of the Prophets and the righteous, and bear whatever they say and do with humility, politeness, patience and perseverance, and remain steadfast on the Noble Path you have chosen for yourself.for then your true reward will be secure with your Lord Most Gracious.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.76 Narrated by Khabbab bin Al Art
We complained to Allah's Messenger (saws)
(about our state and persecution at the hands of the pagans of Makkah while he
(saws) was leaning against his sheet cloak in the shade of the Ka'ba. We said, "O Messenger of Allah (saws)!
Will you ask Allah to help us? Will you
invoke Allah for us?" His (saws)
face turned red with anger and he (saws) said, "Among those who were
before you a (believer) used to be seized and a pit used to be dug for him and
then he used to be placed in it. Then a saw used to be brought and put on his
head, which would then be split into two halves. His flesh might be combed with iron combs and
removed from his bones, yet, all that did not cause him to abandon his
religion. By Allah! This religion

Beloved Brother in Islam, we must understand that the limitations of the dimensions of time and space is for us, and not for Allah Subhanah, the Lord of the Past, Present and the Future! The All-Powerful, All Mighty Lord is able to do all things; and many a times Allah Subhanah showed a glimpse or a portrayal of what will transpire in the future in Hell Fire and in Paradise to His Prophet (saws), who related what he saw to his people as a warning to the evil doers, and as a source of good news to the workers of righteousness. If Allah Wills, He is Able and Capable to re-create the past in the future or create of what will happen in the future in the present; for He indeed is Able to do anything He Wills and Desires.
Even in the Glorious Quran, on several occasions Allah Subhanah portrays
the future happenings, sayings and conversations of the people of Hell Fire and
the people of
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verses 43-47:
43 And We shall remove from their (the believers) hearts any
lurking sense of injury; beneath them
will be rivers flowing; and they shall
say: "Praise be to Allah Who hath guided us to this (felicity): never could we have found guidance had it not
been for the guidance of Allah: indeed it was the Truth that the Prophets of
our Lord brought unto us." And they
Shall hear the cry: "Behold! the
44 The companions of
45 "Those who would hinder (men) from the path of Allah and would seek in it something crooked: they were those who denied the Hereafter."
46 Between them shall be a veil and on the heights will be men who
would know everyone by his marks: they will call out to the companions of the
47 When their eyes shall be turned towards the companions of the Fire they will say: "Our Lord! Send us not to the company of the wrong- doers."
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verses 165-167:
There are people who set up equals and rivals with Allah and adore them with the adoration due to Allah! Whereas the believers adore Allah most ardently. Would that these transgressors could realize now what they will realize when they see the chastisement before them: that power and authority wholly belong to Allah, and that Allah is severe in punishment! When He will inflict punishment, those very leaders and guides whom they followed in the world will disown them. But punishment they shall get and all their bonds shall be cut off. Then those who followed them will say, Would that we were given another chance to return to the world. Then we will disown them just as they have disowned us today! Thus Allah will bring before them the deeds they did in the world in such a manner as to make them wring their hands in regret, but they shall be unable to come out of the Fire.
The simplest explanation to your query is that Allah Subhanah is Able and Capable of doing whatever He Wills! If He Wills, He may declare the state and conversations that will take place in the future of the people of Paradise Hell Fire as if in the present; or He may portray events in the future of Paradise and Hell Fire to His Prophets as if in the present! Allah Subhanah does whatever He Wills!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
