Answer:

 

Come out of Hell

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.

 

As far as the state of the hypocrites, the disbelievers, and the polytheists (mushriks) goes, Allah Subhanah has made it abundantly clear that these people will never ever get out of the Hell Fire.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verses 36-37:

36 As to those who reject faith, if they had everything on earth and twice repeated to give as ransom for the penalty of the Day of Judgment, it would never be accepted of them. Theirs would be a grievous penalty.

37 Their wish will be to get out of the fire, but never will they get out therefrom: their penalty will be one that endures.

 

Nowhere in the Quran is it mentioned that one who is condemned to Hell Fire, will be taken out after some time; and absolutely nowhere in the Quran is it mentioned that the believers will go into Hell Fire!

 

The Glorious Quran has severely condemned this exact belief of the People of the Book, who believed that even if they did go to Hell for some of their mis-deeds, Allah would take them out of Hell!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verses 23-25:

23 Hast thou not turned thy vision to those who have been given a portion of the Book? They are invited to the Book of Allah to settle their dispute, but a party of them turn back and decline (the arbitration).

24 This because they say: "The fire shall not touch us but for a few numbered days"; for their forgeries deceive them as to their own religion.

25 But how (will they fare), when We gather them together against a Day about which there is no doubt, and each soul will be paid out just what it has earned without (favor or injustice)?


 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verses 78-82:

78 And there are among them illiterates who know not the Book but (see therein their own) desires and they do nothing but conjecture.

79 Then woe to those who write the book with their own hands and then say: "This is from Allah" to traffic with it for a miserable price! Woe to them for what their hands do write and for the gain they make thereby.

80 And they say: "The fire shall not touch us but for a few numbered days"; Say: "Have ye taken a promise from Allah for He never breaks His promise? Or is it that ye say of Allah what ye do not know?"

81 Nay those who seek gain in evil and are girt round by their sins they are Companions of the Fire therein shall they abide (for ever).

82 But those who have faith and work righteousness they are Companions of the Garden therein shall they abide (for ever).

 

Unfortunately, this belief, that a believer will spend some time in Hell and will then be released has also crept into the muslim Ummah! The Quran is extremely clear in its verdict that one who goes to Hell will stay in it forever; and the one who goes to Paradise will stay therein for ever!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 101 Surah Al-Qaaria verses 6-11:

6 Then he whose balance (of good deeds) will be (found) heavy

7 Will be in a life of good pleasure and satisfaction.

8 But he whose balance (of good deeds) will be (found) light

9 Will have his home in a (bottomless) pit.

10 And what will explain to thee what this is?

11 (It is) a Fire Blazing fiercely!

 

Beloved brother in Islam, the truth is there are indeed a few hadiths recorded which state that some believers who had faith, but because of their evil deeds were condemned to the Hell Fire and after fulfilling their time in Hell Fire they will be taken out by Allah Subhanah! Although these narrations are recorded in the sahih category of hadiths, almost all of such hadiths are related by one narrator and most of the good scholars and jurists are of the opinion that regardless of the source of the hadith, if any hadith goes against the clear guidance of the Holy Quran, that hadith cannot be accepted as sahih.

 

First and foremost nowhere in the Quran is it mentioned that believers will go to Hell Fire, and secondly, one of the conditions of accepting any hadith as authentic or sahih, is that it can never go against any clear guidance and teachings of the Holy Quran. And the Holy Quran is extremely clear in its context that one who is condemned to the Hell Fire, will not be allowed to come out of it!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 32 Surah As-Sajdah verse 20:

As to those who are rebellious and wicked, their abode will be the Fire: every time they wish to get away therefrom, they will be forced thereinto, and it will be said to them: "taste ye the Penalty of the Fire, which ye were wont to reject as false.

 

Beloved brother, rest assured that our Lord Allah Subhanah, The Most Merciful, Most Gracious will never condemn a true believer who died on faith to the Hell Fire! If some believer has committed a major sin like zina, murder, eating riba, transgression of Allahs Laws, etc. , and died in a state whereby he could not repent and seek Taubah; then his state is in the Sole Hands of Allah Subhanah Alone! He may, if He wills, forgive him; or punish him in the grave, or punish him on the Day of Judgment itself; and then have Mercy on him and forgive him and save him from the eternal Hell Fire.

 

Allah says in the Quran: Chapter 4 Surah An-Nisa Verse 48
Shirk (associating other deities with Allah) is the only sin that Allah does not forgive, and He forgives, whomsoever He pleases, sins other than this. For whosoever associates any other partner with Allah, does indeed forge a big lie and commits the most heinous sin

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.445 Narrated by Abu Dhar

The Prophet (saws) said, "Jibrael said to me, 'Whoever amongst your followers die without having worshipped others besides Allah, will enter Paradise (or will not enter the (Hell) Fire)." The Prophet (saws) asked. "Even if he has committed illegal sexual intercourse or theft?" Jibrael (a.s.) replied, "Even then!"

 

Hadith Qudsi 34

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said that Allah Subhanah, Glorified and Exalted is He, says: O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great at it!

 

But to believe that one who is so wretched that he has been condemned by the Lord to the Hell Fire will somehow come out of Hell Fire is a belief of the People of Book and the pagans, and Allah Subhanah has Himself condemned this very belief in His Glorious Quran! It does not behove a believer, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, to hold a belief which the Merciful has Himself condemned in the Glorious Quran.

 

Dear and beloved brother in Islam, if there is one thing which has beguiled some believers to openly disobey the Commands and Dictates of Islam and transgress the clear boundaries of Allah and His Messenger (saws).it is this concept that somehow or the other, simply because they claimed to be followers of Prophet Mohamed (saws), they will come out of Hell Fire and enter Paradise.even if it means that they will go to Hell Fire only for a number of years to pay for their sins!....but ultimately they will enter Paradise!!!

 

This is the exact same concept which was held by the People of the Book and Allah Subhanah Himself has time and again strongly condemned this very concept and belief of theirs in His Glorious Quran; and it just does not behove and befit a believer who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day to hold a belief which has been condemned by their Lord Most High!

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

 

Burhan
