Jahannam (Part 13)

The drink and dress of the people of Hell

These aayaat mention four kinds of drink that the people of Hell have to endure:

1️⃣ al-Hameem: an extremely hot water.

As Allah says: ” In its midst and in the midst of the boiling hot water will they wander round! ” (55:44)

This was explained as being ultra-hot water. And Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) says: ” They will be given to drink from a boiling hot spring. ” (88:5)

2️⃣ al-Ghassaaq: as discussed earlier

3️⃣ al-Sadeed (pus): what flows from the flesh and skin of the Kaafir. Muslim reports from Jaabir that the Prophet (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said, ” Anyone who drinks intoxicants will be made to drink the mud of khabaal”. They asked, “O Messenger of Allah, what is the mud of khabaal?” He said, “The sweat of the people of Hell”, or “the juice of the people of Hell”.

4️⃣ al-Muhl: according to the hadith of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri narrated by Ahmad and at-Tirmidhi the Prophet (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said:

“It is like boiling oil, and when it is brought near a person’s face, the skin of the face falls off into it”. Ibn ‘Abbaas said, “It is like very thick oil” .

As for the dress of the people of Hell, Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) has told us that garments of fire will be tailor-made for them, as it says in the Qur’an:

“.. But for those who deny [their Rabb] for them will be cut out a garment of Fire; over their heads will be poured out boiling water” (22:19)

When Ibraaheem at-Taymi recited this Aayah he used to say, “Glory be to Allah, Who has created garments out of fire” (at-Takhweef min an-Naar, p.126)

Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) says, ” And you will see the sinners that Day bound together in fetters. Their garments of liquid pitch and their faces covered with Fire”. (14:49-50)

This pitch or tar is melted copper. According to a hadith narrated by Muslim from Abu Maalik al-Ash’ari, the Prophet (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said, ” The woman who wails for the dead, if she does not repent before she dies, she will be resurrected on the Day of Resurrection, wearing a shirt of tar and a shield of scabs. “
