Jahannam (Part 8)


The Worst Evil Deeds of Those Who Will Remain Forever in Hell(4 and 5 of 5)

(4) Hypocrisy

Allah promised Hell to the hypocrites, a promise that He has taken upon Himself to never break:

“Allah has promised the hypocrites, men and women, and the rejecters of Faith, the fire of Hell, therein shall they dwell. Sufficient is it for them. For them is the curse of Allah and an enduring punishment .” (9:68)

He has told us that the position of the hypocrites is the lowest level of Hell, which is where the heat and agony are most intense:

“The hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire; no helper will you find for them”. (4:145)

(5) Those who reject Allah Ta’ala’s signs and treat them with Arrogance:

This is a quality shared by most of the people of Hell. Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) says:

“But those who reject Our Signs and treat them with arrogance – they are the Companions (dwellers) of the Fire, to dwell therein [forever ]” (7:36)

Muslim devoted a chapter of his Saheeh to this issue, entitled Baab an-Naar Yadhkhulha al-Jabbaaroon wal-Jannah yadkhuluha ad-du’afaa (Hell will be entered by the arrogant and Paradise will be entered by the weak). In this chapter he refers to the debate between Paradise and Hell, what they said and what Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) said to them. Muslim quotes the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah (Radiallaahu Anhu) which goes back to the Prophet (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam ), in which it is stated that Hell said,
” The arrogant and proud will enter me .”

According to another report, Hell said,
“I will become rich (have too many) from the proud and arrogant” . Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) said, ” You are My Punishment with which I will punish whomsoever I will “. (Sahih Muslim, 4/2186, no. 2846)

al-Bukhaari, Muslim and at-Tirmidhi report from Harithah ibn Wahb that the Messenger of Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) said: ” Shall I not tell you about the people of Paradise? Every meek person who is considered to be so humble that if he were to adjure something by Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala), He would fulfil it for him. Shall I not tell you about the people of Hell? Every haughty, greedy and proud person.” (Jaami’ al-Usool, 10/547, no. 8111)

According to a report given by Muslim, he (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said, “Every proud mean and arrogant person “. This is confirmed by the Qur’an

“Is there not in Hell an abode for the Haughty [i.e. arrogant ]?” (39:60)

“But today shall you be recompensed with a penalty of humiliation for that you were arrogant on earth without just cause, and that you [ever] transgressed “(48:20)

“Then, for such as had transgressed all bounds, and had preferred the life of this world, the Abode will be Hellfire” (79:37-39)
