جہنم کی سزا اتنی سخت کیوں

ہمارا عقیدہ ہے کہ اگر ایمان کی حالت میں موت آ جائے تو صحیح ہے، ورنہ ہمیشہ ہمیشہ کے لیے جہنم ہے۔ جبکہ انسان کا معاملہ یہ ہے کہ وہ اتناروایت پسندہے کہ اگر عیسائی کے ہاں پیدا ہوتا ہے تو ساری عمر عیسائی ہی رہتا ہے، اور اگر ہندو کے ہاں پیدا ہوتا ہے تو ساری عمر ہندو ہی رہتا ہے اور کسی دوسرے کے ایمان و عقیدے کی طرف نہیں دیکھتا۔ جب انسان اتنا روایت پسند ہے تو پھر اتنی سخت سزا کیوں رکھی گئی ہے کہ وہ ہمیشہ ہمیشہ کے لیے جہنم میں جائے گا؟

Life In Hell And Paradise

I am reading the English translation of the Quran by Abdullah Yusuf Ali. My copy also contains his notes on the passages. He writes under Q 10:45 that we will recognize each other on Judgment Day so we know that justice is served and that Allah served righteousness to those according to their deeds on earth.

When Judgment is passed and we (InshaAllah) are granted eternity in Jannah, will our memories of those doomed for the fire remain with us? Seems a hard thing to consume knowing that some on earth that were not evil but just not believers and we were friends with are in eternal agony. Could you explain in your best opinion of this?

Purpose Of Human Life

I am a student of physics at the University of Vienna. As you know that in the West there is a misunderstanding about the Islamic teachings and practices, which puts a common Muslim in conflict with his religion. Therefore my question to you is: why we are meant to go to Paradise or Hell after the death. Is the existence of Paradise and Hell only a projection and excuse of the human mind to make this world seem less important? For instance we are promised to get 70 Virgins and alcohol in Paradise and in this world we have to stay away from prohibited sexual relations and alcohol. Is it not a kind of double standard? Why does someone for example an atheist, a man who does not believe in God or at least in a personal god must go to Hell? Does my life only means only to go to Hell or Paradise after death? What do you think of Karl Marx who said “Religion is only an opium of the people". I would be very pleased and thankful to you for your guidance.

Will Some People Be Released From Hell

I have heard a lot of people saying that if someone dies as a Muslim and he used to believe in Allah from the core of his heart and also believe in Hazrat Muhammad (sws) but has done a lot of bad deeds (more than his good deeds) then he will be given the punishment for his bad deeds for some time and then he will be sent to heaven for ever after. However, I used to strongly disagree and say that if someone goes to Hell, then he stays there forever and if he goes to heaven then he stays there forever. And what you are saying is exactly what the Christians used to say. But I would like to know the opinion of Mr. Ghamdi on this and if I'm wrong please explain this to me and if I'm right please tell me how to explain this to others. Thank You.

Fate Of The Prophet’s Parents

A scholar has claimed that the holy Prophet’s parents are in Hell, because they were not Muslims. I need a clarification on the matter. He claimed that the Prophet Mohammad (sws) had once told a Muslim who had non-Muslim parents that his parents were in Hell. He got upset and the prophet clarified that his parents were with the Prophet’s parents, in Hell.

Now, I think that all those who were not introduced to the Holy Prophet should not be in Hell, because they existed before the revelation of Qur’an or the advent of the Prophet (sws). I am sure that the Prophet’s parents followed Abraham’s religion which was also the predecessor of Islam in Arabia. Please, elaborate and comment with reference to the Qur’an and Sunnah.

خدا کی نافرمانی پر جہنم جیسی سزا کیوں؟

ہم علما اور دوسرے لوگوں سے سنتے ہیں کہ اگر ہم نے اللہ تعالیٰ کے احکام کی پیروی نہیں کی تو وہ ہمیں سزا دے گا اور جہنم میں ڈال دے گا ۔ بچہ جب غلطی کرتا ہے تو ماں عام طور پر اسے کچھ نہیں کہتی یا پھر ہلکی پھلکی سزا دیتی ہے ، پھر خدا جو اپنے بندوں سے ستر ماؤں سے زیادہ محبت کرتا ہے وہ کیسے انہیں ان کی نافرمانی کی سزا کے طور پر جہنم کی آگ میں جھونک دے گا؟

کیا جہنم کافروں کا ابدی ٹھکانہ نہیں ہے؟

جاوید احمد صاحب غامدی کی کتاب میزان کے باب ’ایمانیات‘ میں آخرت پر ایمان‘ والے حصے میں یہ لکھا ہوا ہے کہ جہنمی آخر کار یا تو جہنم میں جل کر خاک یا راکھ ہو جائیں گے یا پھر سب کو سزا دینے کے بعد جہنم کی بساط لپیٹ دی جائے گی۔ اس کا کیا مطلب ہے؟ اس سلسلے میں ایک آیت کا حوالہ بھی دیا گیا ہے جس میں یہ بھی ہے کہ کافر جہنم میں رہیں گے جب تک زمین و آسمان قائم ہیں ۔ تو اس کا پھر کیا مطلب ہوا؟ اسی کتاب میں جنتی زندگی کو بار بار ابدی بتایا گیا ہے تو کیا دوزخیوں کی زندگی ابدی نہیں ہو گی؟

Jinn and Men created for Hell?

Dear Reader,

Assalaamu alaikum. My question is regarding taqdeer. It is a subject that nurtures countless different interpretations among religious scholars, but the one I find most satisfying is that of Ghamidi sahab. He holds the opinion that man is only bound in some issues, such as where will he be born, his physical and mental abilities, his age at the time of death etc, and for the rest of the issues he is not predestined and decides his own future through his decisions in matters of morality. However, this doctrine seems to be in contradiction with Quran, Surah al A'raf [7:179]. Allah says he has "certainly created for Hell many of the jinn and mankind". Does this verse not tell us that these humans and jinn are predestined to go to hell. It seems their sole purpose was to suffer in Hell. Secondly this seems to be in contradiction to some of Allah's attributes such as the Merciful and the Beneficent. Why would a Loving and all Merciful God create some beings so that they can only suffer in Hell. I am eagerly awaiting your valuable reply.
