Some of the deeds that will cause a person to be in hell temporarily(Continued).

🔟 Insincerity in Seeking Knowledge

Jaabir said, The Messenger of Allah (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said, “ Do not seek knowledge in order to compete with the knowledgeable, or to win arguments with the ignorant, or to show off in gatherings. Whoever does any of that will be in Hell. “ It was reported by Ibn Maajah (Radiallaahu Anhu), by Ibn Hibbaan in his Saheeh and al-Bayhaqi.

Ibn ‘Umar (Radiallaahu Anhu) said that the Messenger of Allah (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said, ” Whoever seeks knowledge for a reason other than for the sake of Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala), then let him take his place in Hell. ” It was reported by at-Tirmidhi and Ibn Maajah

11 Those Who Drink From Vessels of Gold and Silver

al-Bukhaari and Muslim report from Umm Salamah that the Messenger of Allah (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said ” The one who drinks from a vessel/utensil of gold and silver is pouring the fire of Hell into his stomach” . According to a report narrated by Muslim, the wording is ” The one who eats and drinks from vessels of gold and silver.. ” (Mishkaat al-Masaabeeh, 2/462)

Hudhayfah (Radiallaahu Anhu) said, I heard the Messenger of Allah (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) say, “ Do not wear silk or brocade, do not drink from vessels of gold and silver, and do not eat from such platters, for these belong to them [the kuffaar] in this world, and to you in the Hereafter ” (al-Bukhaari and Muslim).

 12 Those Who Commit Suicide

al-Bukhaari and Muslim report from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said,” Whoever kills himself with iron (a sharp instrument) then his iron will be in his hand, and he will be stabbing himself in the stomach with it forever in the Fire of Hell. Whoever kills himself with poison, then he will be drinking that poison forever in the Fire of Hell. Whoever throws himself from a mountain and kills himself, he will be throwing himself down forever in the Fire of Hell” . (at-Tawkheef min an-Naar, p. 148)

al-Bukhaari reports from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said, “ The one who strangles himself will be strangling himself in Hell, and the one who stabs himself will be stabbing himself in Hell”. (Saheeh al-Jaami’ 5/114)

13 Judging Unjustly

Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) revealed the Shari’ah to establish justice among mankind, and He commanded His slaves to be Just:

” Verily Allah commands the justice [and] the doing of good..” (16:90)

He has made it obligatory for rulers and judges to be just and never to be unfair:

Allah commands you to render back your trusts to those to whom they are due; and when you judge between man and man, that you judge with justice“. (4:58)

Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) threatens Hell to those who do not judge with justice. Buraydah ibn al-Husayb narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said,

There are three types of judges: one will be in Paradise and the other two in Hell. The one who will be in Paradise is the one who knows the truth and judges according to it. As for the one who knows the truth but is unjust in his judgement, he will be in Hell, as will the one who judges between people without understanding or knowledge”. (Abu Dawood – Jaami’ al-Usool)
