On this week’s Islamic Faith in Focus podcast with Imam Hassan he addresses death and hell.
It states in the Quran that “Indeed the hell fire is the dwelling place of them all. It has seven gates and within each gate there is an appropriate punishment for each inhabitant…” (Hijr: 44)
The first gate – Jahannam – is for the hypocrites, and the Quran states that “Every time the fire eats away their flesh We will replace it with new flesh so they can taste the punishment…” (Nisaa’:56)
The second gate – Ladha’ – and the Quran states that “There is no way out for them, except the Ladha (i.e. Fierce Blaze) will certainly scorch the inward organs and the outward flesh! It will invite everyone who turned away from following the truth, heedless of it and gathered wealth but refused to spend it in the cause of Allah…” (Ma’arij:15)
The third gate – Saqar – and in the Quran we can read that “Those in paradise will ask the criminals what has landed you all in Saqar? They will say: “We were not of those who used to pray and we didn’t feed the poor and we used to talk vainly with those who talked vain talk and we used to deny the Day of Recompense until death came to us and we saw the reality of all that we denied” (Mudathir:40-47).
