Hell Fire

If you doubt what We (Allah) have revealed to Our servant (Allah’s prophet Mohamed), produce one chapter comparable to it.  Call upon your idols to assist you, if what you say be true.  But if you fail (as you are sure to fail) then guard yourselves against the Fire whose fuel is men and stones, prepared for the unbelievers.

Al-Baqarah    The Cow 2:23



Do not be deceived by the fortunes of the unbelievers in the land.  Their prosperity is brief.  Hell shall be their home, an evil resting place. 

Al-I-Imran    The Imrans 3:196-197


Hell Fire

Those who entertain no hope of meeting Us (Allah's angels), being pleased and contented with the life of this world, and those who pay no heed to Our (Allah's angels) revelations , shall have the Fire as their home in requital for their deeds.

Yunus     Jonah     10:7-8



Say:  “This is the truth from your Lord.  Let him who will believe in it, and him who will, deny it.”


For the wrongdoers We have prepared a fire which will encompass them like the walls of a pavilion.  When they cry out for help they shall be showered with water as hot as molten brass, which will scald their faces.  Evil shall be their drink, evil their resting place.

Al-Kahf     The Cave  18:29



But those that do evil, the fire shall be their home.  Whenever they desire to emerge from it they shall be driven back, and shall be told:  “Taste the torment of the fire which you have persistently denied.”


We will inflict on them the lighter torment of this world before the greater torment of the world to come, so that they may perchance return to the right path.  And who is more wicked than the man who gives no heed to the Revelation of His Lord when he is reminded of them?  We will surely take vengeance on the guilty.

As-Sajda      Adoration   32:20-22



As for the unbelievers, the fire of Hell awaits them.  Death shall not deliver them, nor shall its torment ever be eased for them.  Thus shall We reward the thankless.


There they will cry out:  “Lord, remove us hence!  We will live a good life and will not do as we have done.”  But He will answer:  “Did We not make your lives long enough for anyone who would be warned to take warning?  Besides, someone did come to warn you:  have a taste of it then.  None shall help the wrongdoers.”

Fatir   The Creator   35:36-37



Do you not see how those who dispute the Revelations of Allah are turned away from the right path?  Those who have denied the Book and the message We sent through Our apostles will learn hereafter:  when, with chains and shackles round their necks, they shall be dragged through scalding water and burnt in the fire of Hell.

Gafir  The Believer  40:69-72



But doleful shall be the return of the transgressors.  They shall burn in Hell, an evil resting place.  There let them taste their drink:  scalding water, festering blood, and other putrid things.


We shall say to their leaders:  “This band shall be thrown in headlong with you.  No welcome shall await them; they shall be promptly cast into the Fire.”


And the damned will say to their leaders:  “No welcome for you either!  It was you who prepared this for us, an evil plight.


Then they will say:  “Lord, inflict on those who brought this fate upon us a twofold punishment in the Fire.”  But why do we not see those whom we deemed wicked and whom we laughed to scorn?  Or have our eyes missed them?


All this shall come to pass.  The heirs of the Fire will wrangle among themselves.

Sad   38:55-64



Those that deny Our Revelations We will burn in fire.  No sooner will their skins be consumed than We shall give them other skins, so that they may truly taste the scourge.  Surely Allah is mighty and wise.

An-Nisaa     Women 4:56



He that disobeys the Apostle after Our guidance has been Revelations to him, and follows a path other than that of the faithful, shall be given what he has chosen.  We will burn him in the fire of Hell:  an evil end.

An-Nisaa     Women 4:115


Death to the enemies of Allah

Those that make war against Allah and His apostle and spread disorder in the land shall be slain or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or be banished from the land.  They shall be held up to shame in this world and sternly punished in the hereafter:  except those that repent before you reduce them.  For you must know that Allah is forgiving and merciful.

The Table 5:31  page 83



You and your idols shall be the fuel of Hell;  therein shall you all go down. Were they true gods, your idols would not go there.  But there shall they abide for ever.  They shall groan with anguish and be bereft of hearing.

Al-Anbiyaa     The Prophets   21:98-100



Here are two antagonists who contend about their Lord.  Garments of fire have been prepared for the unbelievers.  Scalding water shall be poured upon their heads, melting their skins and that which is in their bellies.  They shall be lashed with rods of iron.


Whenever, in their anguish, they try to escape from Hell, back they shall be dragged, and will be told:  “Taste the torment of the Conflagration!”

Al-Hajj       Pilgrimage  22:19-22


Hell for Unbelievers

On that day We will let them come in tumultuous throngs.  The Trumpet shall be sounded and We will gather them all together.


On that day We shall lay Hell bare before the unbelievers, who have turned a blind eye to My admonition and a deaf ear to My warning.


Do the unbelievers think that they can make My servants patrons besides Me?  We have prepared Hell for the unbelievers to dwell in.


Say:  “Shall we tell you who will lose most through their labors?  Those whose endeavors in this world are misguided and who yet think that what they do is right;  who disbelieve the Revelations of their Lord and deny that they will ever meet Him.”  Vain are the works of these.  On the Day of Resurrection We shall give them no consequence.


Hell is their reward:  because they had no faith, and because they mocked My apostles and My Revelations .

Al-Kahf     The Cave 18:99-106


Hell fire for Unbelievers

Allah has laid His curse upon the unbelievers and prepared for them a blazing fire.  Abiding there forever, they shall find none to protect or help them.


On the day when their heads roll about in the Fire, they shall say:  “Would that we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the Apostle!”  And they shall say:  “Lord, we obeyed our masters and our great ones, but they led us away from the right path.  Lord, mete out to them a double scourge; lay on them a mighty curse.”

Al-Ahzab     The Confederate Tribes  33:64-68


Hell for unbelievers

As for those that disbelieve in Allah and His apostle, We have prepared a blazing Fire for the unbelievers.  Allah has sovereignty over the heavens and the earth.  He pardons whom He will and punishes whom He pleases.  Allah is forgiving and merciful.

Al-Fat-h   Victory     48:13-14



But the evil-doers shall endure for ever the torment of Hell, which will not be assuaged for them; they shall be speechless with despair.  We did not wrong them, but they themselves did wrong.


“Malik,”  they will call out, “let your Lord make an end of us!  But he will answer:  “Here you shall remain!”

Az-Zukhruf  Ornaments of Gold   43:74-77


Hell & Zaqqum tree

The fruit of the Zaqqum tree shall be the sinner’s food.  It will boil in their belly like molten brass and like scalding water.  A voice will cry:  “Seize him and drag him into the depths of Hell.  Then pour out scalding water over his head, saying:  “Taste this, illustrious and honorable man!  This is the punishment which you have doubted.””

Ad-Dukhan  Smoke   44:43-50


Hell for man and jinn

Mankind and jinn, We shall surely find the time to judge you!  Which of Your Lord’s blessings would you deny?


Mankind and jinn, if you have power to penetrate the confines of heaven and earth, then penetrate them!  But this you shall not do except with Our own authority.  Which of Your Lord’s blessings would you deny?


Flames of fire shall be lashed at you, and molten brass.  There shall be none to help you.  Which of Your Lord’s blessings would you deny?


When the sky splits asunder, and reddens like a rose or stained leather,  Which of Your Lord’s blessings would you deny?


On that day neither man nor jinnee will be asked about his sins.  Which of Your Lord’s blessings would you deny?


The wrongdoers will be known by their looks; they shall be seized by their forelocks and their feet.  Which of Your Lord’s blessings would you deny?


That is Hell which the sinners deny.  They shall wander between fire and water fiercely seething.  Which of Your Lord’s blessings would you deny?

Ar-Rahman  The Merciful   55:31-45



Believers, guard yourselves and guard your kindred against a Fire fuelled with men and stones, in the charge of stern and mighty angels who never disobey Allah’s command and who promptly do His bidding.  They will say to the unbelievers:  “Make no excuses for yourselves this day.  You shall be rewarded according only to your deeds.

At-Tahrim    Prohibition    66:6-7


Hell’s inmates

We have prepared the scourge of the Fire for these, and the scourge of Hell for those who deny their Lord:  an evil fate!


When they are flung into its flames, they shall hear it roaring and seething, as though bursting with rage.  And every time a multitude is thrown therein, its keepers will say to them:  “Did no one come to warn you?”  “Yes,”  they will reply, “he did come, but we rejected him and said:  “Allah has Revealed nothing:  you are in grievous error.”’  And they will say:  “If only we listened and understood, we should not now be among the inmates of the Fire.”  Thus shall they confess their sin.  Far from Allah’s mercy are the inmates of the Fire.

Al-Mulk    Sovereignty    67:6-11



Woe betide the unbelievers!

Begone to that Hell which you deny!  Depart into the shadow that will rise high in three columns, giving neither shade nor shelter from the flames, and throwing up sparks as huge as towers, as bright as yellow camels!

Al-Mursalat    Those That Are Sent    77:28-33



Woe betide the unbelievers!

On that day they shall not speak, nor shall their pleas be heeded. 

Al-Mursalat    Those That Are Sent    77:34-36



Hell will lie in ambush, a home for the transgressors.  There they shall abide long ages;  there they shall taste neither refreshment nor any drink save scalding water and decaying filth;  a fitting recompense. 

An-Nabaa    The Tidings    78:21-26




Everlasting Fire

Hell should be avoided at all cost


Matthew 5:29-30    NKJV

29 If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.


Hell and the Lake of Fire

Matthew 10:28    NKJV

28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.


Matthew 25:41    NKJV 

Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 


Mark 9:43-48    NKJV

43 If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched-- 44 where

'Their worm does not die,

And the fire is not quenched.' 


45 "And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched-- 46 where

'Their worm does not die,

And the fire is not quenched.' 


47 "And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire-- 48 where

'Their worm does not die,

And the fire is not quenched.'



2 Peter 2:4-11    NKJV

4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8(for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)-- 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a Reviling accusation against them before the Lord.


Hell for King of Babylon

Isaiah 14:3-11    NKJV

3 It shall come to pass in the day the LORD gives you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear and the hard bondage in which you were made to serve, 4 that you will take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say:

"How the oppressor has ceased, The golden city ceased! 5 The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked, The scepter of the rulers; 6 He who struck the people in wrath with a continual stroke, He who ruled the nations in anger, Is persecuted and no one hinders. 7 The whole earth is at rest and quiet; They break forth into singing. 8 Indeed the cypress trees rejoice over you, And the cedars of Lebanon, Saying, 'Since you were cut down, No woodsman has come up against us.'

9 "Hell from beneath is excited about you, To meet you at your coming; It stirs up the dead for you, All the chief ones of the earth; It has raised up from their thrones All the kings of the nations. 10 They all shall speak and say to you: ‘Have you also become as weak as we? Have you become like us? 11 Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, And the sound of your stringed instruments; The maggot is spread under you, And worms cover you.'


Hell for Prideful ness

Habakkuk 2:4-13    NKJV

4 "Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.

5 "Indeed, because he transgresses by wine, He is a proud man, And he does not stay at home. Because he enlarges his desire as hell, And he is like death, and cannot be satisfied, He gathers to himself all nations And heaps up for himself all peoples.

6 "Will not all these take up a proverb against him, And a taunting riddle against him, and say, 'Woe to him who increases What is not his--how long? And to him who loads himself with many pledges'? 7 Will not your creditors rise up suddenly? Will they not awaken who oppress you? And you will become their booty. 8 Because you have plundered many nations, All the remnant of the people shall plunder you, Because of men's blood And the violence of the land and the city, And of all who dwell in it.

9 "Woe to him who covets evil gain for his house, That he may set his nest on high, That he may be delivered from the power of disaster! 10 You give shameful counsel to your house, Cutting off many peoples, And sin against your soul. 11 For the stone will cry out from the wall, And the beam from the timbers will answer it.

12 "Woe to him who builds a town with bloodshed, Who establishes a city by iniquity! 13 Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts That the peoples labor to feed the fire, And nations weary themselves in vain?


Matthew 18:6-9    NKJV

 7 Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes! 8 If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire. 9 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.


Luke 12:4-5    NKJV

4 "And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5 But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!


Lake of Fire

Revelation 19:19-21    NKJV

19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.


Revelation 20:7-10    NKJV

7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever


Revelation 20:11-15    NKJV

11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.


Revelation 14:6-12    NKJV

6 Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth--to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people-- 7 saying with a loud voice, "Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water." 8 And another angel followed, saying, "Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication." 9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name."


Isaiah 30:33    NKJV

33 For Tophet (Hell) was established of old,

Yes, for the king it is prepared.

He has made it deep and large;

Its pyre is fire with much wood;

The breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone,

Kindles it.


Isaiah 66:15-16    NKJV

15 For behold, the LORD will come with fire

And with His chariots, like a whirlwind,

To render His anger with fury,

And His rebuke with flames of fire.

16 For by fire and by His sword

The LORD will judge all flesh;

And the slain of the LORD shall be many.


Matthew 3:11-12    NKJV

11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."


Matthew 13:40-43    NKJV

40 Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. 41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, 42 and will cast them into the furnace of fire.

2 Thessalonians 1:4-12    NKJV

4 so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure, 5 which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer; 6 since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, 7 and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is Revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, 8 in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10 when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed. 11 Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power, 12 that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."


Hell for rejection of Allah and His apostle

Are they not aware that the man who defies Allah and His apostle shall abide forever in the fire of Hell?  That surely is the supreme humiliation. 

At-Touba    Repentance 9:63



Be they man or women, the hypocrites are all alike.  They enjoin what is evil, and forbid what is just, and tighten their fists.  They forgot Allah, so Allah forgot them.  Surely the hypocrites are evil doers.


Allah has promised the hypocrites, both men and women, and the unbelievers, the fire of Hell.  They shall abide in it forever;  a sufficient recompense.  The curse of Allah is upon them;  lasting torment awaits them.

At-Touba    Repentance 9:67-68


Rejecting Koran

Say:  “You people!  I have been sent to warn you plainly.  Those that accept the true faith (Islam) and do good works shall be forgiven and richly recompensed; but those that seek to confute Our revelations shall be the tenants of Hell.”

Al-Hajj       Pilgrimage 22:49-51


Hell for the ungodly

Psalm 9:17

17 The wicked shall be turned into hell,

And all the nations that forget God.



Proverbs 15:11

11 Hell and Destruction are before the LORD;

So how much more the hearts of the sons of men.



Proverbs 27:20    NKJV

20 Hell and Destruction are never full;

So the eyes of man are never satisfied.


Proverbs 10:29    NKJV

But destruction will come to the workers of iniquity.


Isaiah 13:6    NKJV

6 Wail, for the day of the LORD is at hand!

It will come as destruction from the Almighty.


Hell predestination

We have predestined for Hell numerous jinn and men.  They have hearts they cannot comprehend with; they have eyes they cannot see with; and they have ears they cannot hear with.  They are like beasts - indeed, they are more misguided.  Such are heedless.

Al-A’raf      The Heights     7:179


Predestined to Hell

Had it been Our will, We could have given every soul its guidance.  But My word shall be fulfilled:  I will surely fill Hell with jinn and humans all .”

As-Sajda      Adoration   32:13


Predestined choices

The day the Trumpet sounds shall be a hard and joyless day for the unbelievers.  Leave to Me the man whom I created helpless and endowed with vast riches and thriving children.  I have made his progress smooth and easy:  yet he hopes that I shall give him more.  By no means!  Because he has stubbornly denied Our Revelations, I will lay on him a mounting torment.


He pondered, and he schemed.  Confounded him, how he schemed!  Again, confounded him, how he schemed!


He looked around him, frowning and scowling; then he turned away in scornful pride and said:  “This is but sorcery counterfeited, the utterance of a mere mortal.”


I will surely cast him into the Fire.  Would that you knew what the Fire is like!  It is guarded by nineteen keepers.


We have appointed none but angels to guard the Fire, and made their number a subject for dispute among the unbelievers, so that those to whom the Scriptures were given may be convinced and the true believers strengthened in their faith; that those to whom the Scriptures were given, and the true believers, nay have no doubts;  and that those whose hearts are tainted and those who have no faith may say:  “What could Allah mean by this?”  Thus Allah confounds whom He will and guides whom He pleases.  None knows the warriors of your Lord but Himself.  This is no more than an admonition to mankind.

Al-Muddaththir   The Cloaked One    74:8-31



Romans 8:28-30   NKJV

29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.


Ephesians 1:3-14    NKJV

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved. 7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace 8 which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, 9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, 10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth--in Him. 11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. 13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.


[God has predestined that the Believers will go to Heaven and the unbelievers will go to Hell.  The choice is up to the individual as what he does with the evidence God has given in the Scriptures. ]


John 3:36    NKJV

36 He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."


John 8:24-25    NKJV

24 Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins."


Galatians 3:22-23    NKJV

22 But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.


2 Corinthians 4:3-4    NKJV

3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.


2 Thessalonians 2:9-12    NKJV

9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


Judgment day and Hell

On that day the heaven will shake and reel, and the mountains move and pass away.  On that day woe betide the unbelievers, who now divert themselves with vain disputes. 


On that day they shall be sternly thrown into the fire of Hell, and a voice will say to them:  “This is the Fire which you denied.  Is this sorcery, or do you not see?  Burn in its flames.  It is the same whether or not you show forbearance.  You shall be recompensed according only to your deeds.”

At-Tur   The Mountain   52:9-16


Left Hand to Hell

As for those on the left hand (wretched shall be those on the left hand!)  they shall dwell amidst scorching winds and seething water:  in the shade of pitch black smoke, neither cool nor refreshing.  For they have lived in comfort and persisted in the heinous sin, saying:  “When we are once dead and turned to dust and bones, Shall we be raised to life?  And our forefathers, too?”


Say:  “Those of old and those of the present age, shall be brought together on an appointed day.  As for you sinners who deny the truth, you shall eat fruit of the Zaqqum tree and fill your bellies with it.  You shall drink scalding water:  yet you shall drink it as the thirsty camel drinks.” 


Such shall be their fare on the Day of Reckoning.


We created you; will you not believe then in Our power?

Al-Waqia  That which is coming   56:41-56


Judgment Day

The damned shall be cast into the fire, where, groaning and wailing, they shall abide as long as the heavens and the earth endure, unless your Lord ordain otherwise:  your Lord shall accomplish what He will.     As for the blessed, they shall abide in Paradise as long as the heavens and the earth endure, unless your Lord ordain otherwise.  Theirs shall be an endless recompense.

Hud   11:106-108



But those to whom We have long since shown Our favor shall be far removed from Hell.  They shall not hear its roar, but shall delight for ever in what their souls desire.


The supreme Terror shall not grieve them, and the angels will receive them, saying:  “This is the day you have been promised.”


On that day We shall roll up the heaven like a scroll of parchment.  Just as We brought the First Creation into being, so will We restore it.  This is a promise We shall assuredly fulfill.

Al-Anbiyaa   The Prophets   21:101-104


Rewards Paradise or Hell

Those whose good deeds weigh heavy in the scales shall triumph, but those whose deeds are light shall forfeit their souls and abide in Hell for ever.  The fire will scorch their faces and they will writhe in anguish.

Al-Muminun      The Believers  23:102-104


Hell - Paradise

Indeed, they deny the Hour of Doom.  For those who deny that hour We have prepared a blazing fire.  From far away they shall hear it raging and roaring.  And when chained together, they are flung into some narrow space, they will fervently call for death.  But they will be told:  “Do not call today for one death; call for many deaths!”


Say:  “Which is better, this or the Paradise of Immortality which the righteous have been promised?  It is their recompense and their retreat.  Abiding there for ever, they shall find in it all that they desire.  That is a promise which your Lord must needs fulfill.

Al-Furqan  25:11-16


Paradise compared with Hell

Such is Paradise which the righteous have been promised:  Therein shall flow rivers of water undefiled, and rivers of milk for ever fresh;  rivers of wine delectable to those what drink it, and rivers of clarified honey.  There shall they eat of every fruit, and receive forgiveness from their Lord.  Are they to be compared to those who shall abide in Hell forever, and drink scalding water which will tear their bowels?

Muhammad  47:15


Judgment Day

Matthew 25:31-46   

31 "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.' 37 "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' 40 "And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.' 41 "Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.' 44 "Then they also will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?' 45 "Then He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' 46 "And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."



Matthew 5:17-20

17 "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.



Matthew 7:21-23

21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'



Matthew 8:10-12

10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, "Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel! 11 And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."



Matthew 10:5-15

5 These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: "Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as you go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.' 8 "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. 9 Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your money belts, 10 nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food. 11 Now whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there till you go out. 12 And when you go into a household, greet it. 13 If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. 15 Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!




Hell described in dialogue

(Dialogue between inmates of Hell and the righteous in Paradise.)


He will say:  "Enter the Fire and join the communities of jinn and men that have gone before you."


As it enters, every community will curse the one that went before it, and when all are gathered there, the last of them will say to the first:  "These, Lord, have led us astray.  Let their punishment be doubled in the Fire."


He will answer:  "All shall be doubly punished, although you may not know it."


Then the first will say to the last:  "You were no better than we.  Taste the penalty of your misdeeds."


For those that have denied and scorned Our Revelations the gates of heaven shall not be opened; nor shall they enter Paradise until the camel shall pass through the eye of a needle.  Thus shall We reward the guilty.


Hell shall be their couch, and sheets of fire shall cover them.  Thus shall We reward the evil doers.


As for those that have faith and do good works - We never charge a soul with more than it can bear - they are the heirs of Paradise, and there they shall abide for ever.


We shall take away all hatred from their hearts.  Rivers will roll at their feet and they shall say:  "Praise be to Allah who has guided us hither.  Had He not given us guidance we would have strayed from the right path.  Our Lord's apostles have surely preached the truth."  And a voice will cry out to them, saying:  "This is Paradise which you have earned with your labors."


Then the heirs of Paradise will cry out to the inmates of the Fire:  "What our Lord promised we have found to be true.  Have you, too, found the promise of your Lord to be true?"


"Yes,"  they will answer, and a herald will cry out among them:  "Cursed are the evil doers who have debarred others from the path of Allah and sought to make it crooked, and who had no faith in the life to come."


A barrier will divide them, and on the Heights there will be men who recognize each one by his look.  To those in Paradise they shall say:  "Peace be upon you!"  But they shall not yet enter, though they long to be there.


And when they turn their eyes towards the inmates of the Fire they will cry:  "Lord, do not cast us among these wicked people!"  Then, those on the Heights will say to men they recognize by their looks:  "Nothing have your riches or your scornful pride availed you.  Are these the men who you swore would never earn Allah's mercy?"


[Again turning to the blessed they will say:]  "Come in to Paradise.  You have nothing to fear or to regret."


The damned will cry out to the blessed:  "Give us some water, or some of that which Allah has given you."  But the blessed will reply:  "Allah has forbidden both to the unbelievers, who made their religion a diversion and an idle sport, and who were seduced by their earthly life."


On that day We will forget them as they forgot they would ever meet that day: for they denied Our Revelations.

Al-A’raf      The Heights    7:38-51


Hell described in Dialogue

19 "There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. 20 But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, 21 desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 Then he cried and said, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.' 25 But Abraham said, 'Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.' 27 Then he said, 'I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father's house, 28 for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.' 29 Abraham said to him, 'They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.' 30 And he said, 'No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.' 31 But he said to him, 'If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.' "

Luke 16:19-31 NKJV


8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.   Ephesians 2:8-9   NKJV


4:1 "Now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and the judgments which I teach you to observe, that you may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers is giving you. 2 You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take anything from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

Deuteronomy 4:1-3   NKJV


29 "When the LORD your God cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land, 30 take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, 'How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.' 31 "You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way; for every abomination to the LORD which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods. 32 Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.

Deuteronomy 12:29-32   NKJV


5 Every word of God is pure;

He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.

6 Do not add to His words,

Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.

Proverbs 30:5-6   NKJV


14 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, "Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, 15 to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.

Jude 14-15    NKJV


Creation of man

Angels prostrate except Satan

Satan becomes the tempter

Hell and Paradise


We created man from dry clay, from black molded loam, and before him Satan from smokeless fire.


Your Lord said to the angels:  “I am creating man from dry clay, from black molded loam.  When I have fashioned him and breathed of My spirit into him, kneel down and prostrate yourselves before him.”


The angels one and all, prostrated themselves, except Satan.  He refused to prostrate himself as the others did.


“Satan,” said Allah, “why do you not prostrate yourself?”


He replied:  “I will not bow to a mortal whom You created of dry clay, of black molded loam.”


“Get you hence,” said Allah, “you are accursed.  The curse shall be on you till Judgment Day.”


“Lord,” said Satan, reprieve me till the Day of Resurrection.”


He answered, “You are reprieved till the Appointed Day.”


“Lord,” said Satan, “since You have thus seduced me, I will tempt mankind on earth:  I will seduce them all, except those of them who are your faithful servants.”


He replied, “This is My straight path.  You shall have no power over My servants, only the sinners who follow you.  They are all destined for Hell.  It has seven gates, and through each gate they shall come in separate bands.  But the righteous shall dwell among gardens and fountains; in peace and safety they shall enter them.  We shall remove all hatred from their hearts, and they shall take their ease on couches face to face, a band of brothers.  Toil shall not weary them, nor shall they ever be driven out.”


Tell My servants that I alone am the Forgiving One, the Merciful; and that only My scourge is the woeful scourge.

Al-Hijr 15:26-50


Creation of man

Your Lord said to the angels:  “I am creating man from clay.  When I have fashioned him and breathed My spirit into him, kneel down and prostrate yourselves before him.”


The angels all prostrated themselves except Satan, who was too proud, for he was an unbeliever.


“Satan,”  said He, “why do you not bow to him whom My own hands have made?  Are you too proud, or do you deem yourself superior?”


Satan replied:  “I am nobler than he.  You created me from fire, but him from clay.”


“Be gone, you accursed!”  said He.  “My curse shall remain on you until the Day of Reckoning.”


He replied:  “Reprieve me, Lord, till the Day of Resurrection.”


He said:  “Reprieved you shall be till the Appointed Day.”


“I swear by Your glory,”  said Satan, “that I will seduce them all except your faithful servants.”


He replied:  “Learn the truth, then (and I speak nothing but the truth):  I will surely fill Hell with your offspring and with your followers all.”

Sad   38:71-85


Oath of Scripture

By the Mountain,

By the Scripture penned on unrolled parchment

By the Visited House, the Lofty Vault, and the swelling sea,

Your Lord’s punishment shall surely come to pass!

No power shall ward it off

At-Tur  The Mountain  52:1-8


Creation of man

Genesis 1:26-31    NKJV

26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."


29 And God said, "See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food"; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.


Genesis 2:7-9    NKJV

7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.


8 The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9 And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.


Genesis 2:15-25    NKJV

15 Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."


18 And the LORD God said, "It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him." 19 Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. 21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 23 And Adam said:


"This is now bone of my bones

And flesh of my flesh;

She shall be called Woman,

Because she was taken out of Man."


24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.


Genesis 3:1-24    NKJV

3:1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, "Has God indeed said, 'You shall not eat of every tree of the garden'?"


2 And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.' "


4 Then the serpent said to the woman, "You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."


6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.


7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. 8 And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.


9 Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?"


10 So he said, "I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself."


11 And He said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?"


12 Then the man said, "The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate."


13 And the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?"


The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."


14 So the LORD God said to the serpent:

"Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel."


16 To the woman He said:

"I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you."


17 Then to Adam He said, "Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat of it':

"Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life. 18 Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, And you shall eat the herb of the field. 19 In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return."


20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living. 21 Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.


22 Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever"-- 23 therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.


Hebrews 1:1-6    NIV

1:1 In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.


3 The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.


5 For to which of the angels did God ever say,


"You are my Son;

today I have become your Father"?


Or again,


"I will be his Father,

and he will be my Son"?


6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says,


"Let all God's angels worship him." 


1 Corinthians 10:13    NIV

13 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.


Fight for Allah

Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and deal sternly with them.  Hell shall be their home, evil their fate.

At-Tahrim    Prohibition    66:9


Fight for Allah

Believers, have fear of Allah and seek the right path to Him.  Fight valiantly for His cause, so that you may triumph.


As for the unbelievers, if they offered all that the earth contains and as much besides to redeem themselves from the torment of the Day of Resurrection, it shall not be accepted from them.  Woeful punishment awaits them.  They will strive to get out of the Fire, but get out of it they shall not.  Lasting punishment awaits them.

Al-Maidah      The Table 5:35-37


Jews and Christians

You will find that the most implacable of men in their enmity to the faithful are the Jews and the pagans, and that the nearest in affection to them are those who say: "We are Christians."


When they listen to that which was Revealed to the Apostle, you see their eyes fill with tears as they recognize the truth.  They say: "Lord, we believe.  Count us among the witnesses.  Why should we not believe in Allah and in the truth that has come down to us?  Why should we not hope our Lord will admit us among the righteous?"  And for their words Allah has rewarded them with gardens watered by running streams, where they shall dwell forever.  Such is the recompense of the righteous.  But those that disbelieve and deny Our Revelations shall become the inmates of Hell.

The Table 5:82  page 88


War against unbelievers

Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them.  Hell shall be their home: an evil fate.

At-Touba    Repentance 9:73


Fight for Allah

When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly.  Then grant them their freedom or take a ransom for them, until war shall lay down her burdens.


Thus shall you do.  Had Allah willed, He could Himself have punished them; [but He has ordained it thus] that He might test you, the one by the other.


As for those who are slain in the cause of Allah, He will not allow their works to perish.  He will vouchsafe them guidance and ennoble their state;  He will admit them to the Paradise He has made known to them.


Believers, if you help Allah, Allah will help you and make you strong.  But the unbelievers shall be consigned to perdition.  He will bring their deeds to nothing.  Because they have abhorred His Revelations, He will frustrate their works.


Have they never journeyed through the land and seen what was the end of those who have gone before them?  Allah destroyed them utterly.  A similar fate awaits the unbelievers, because Allah is the protector of the faithful:  because the unbelievers have no protector.


Allah will admit those who embrace the true Faith (Islam) and do good works to gardens watered by running streams.  The unbelievers take their fill of pleasure and eat as cattle eat:  but the Fire shall be their home.


How many cities were mightier than your own city, which has cast you out!  We destroyed them all, and there was none to help them.


Can he who follows the guidance of his Lord be compared to him who is led by his desires and whose foul deeds seem fair to him?

Muhammad  47:4-14


Fire of God’s Judgment

Deuteronomy 32:22    NKJV

22 For a fire is kindled by my anger,

And shall burn to the lowest hell;

It shall consume the earth with her increase,

And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.


2 Peter 3:7    NKJV

7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.


2 Peter 3:10-12    NKJV

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?


Jude 5-7    NKJV

5 But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; 7 as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.


Kingdom of Heaven or Hell

Matthew 13:24-30    NKJV

24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?' 28 "He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him, 'Do you want us then to go and gather them up?' 29 "But he said, 'No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, "First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn." ' "


Matthew 13:44-50    NKJV

44 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.


45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, 46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.


47 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind, 48 which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. 49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, 50 and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth."


Matthew 18:1-5    NKJV

18:1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" 2 Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, 3 and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.


Matthew 20:1-16    NKJV

20:1 "For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. 2 Now when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3 And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4 and said to them, 'You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.' So they went. 5 Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did likewise. 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, 'Why have you been standing here idle all day?' 7 "They said to him, 'Because no one hired us.' He said to them, 'You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right you will receive.' 8 "So when evening had come, the owner of the vineyard said to his steward, 'Call the laborers and give them their wages, beginning with the last to the first.' 9 "And when those came who were hired about the eleventh hour, they each received a denarius. 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise received each a denarius. 11 And when they had received it, they complained against the landowner, 12 saying, 'These last men have worked only one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.' 13 "But he answered one of them and said, 'Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? 14 Take what is yours and go your way. I wish to give to this last man the same as to you. 15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things? Or is your eye evil because I am good?' 16 "So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen."


Matthew 25:1-13    NKJV

25:1 "Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight a cry was heard: 'Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!' 7 "Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' 9 "But the wise answered, saying, 'No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.' 10 "And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. 11 Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open to us!' 12 "But he answered and said, 'Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.' 13 "Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.


Matthew 25:14-30    NKJV

14 "For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. 15 And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. 16 Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. 17 And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. 18 But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord's money. 19 After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, 'Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.' 21 "His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.' 22 "He also who had received two talents came and said, 'Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.' 23 "His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.' 24 "Then he who had received the one talent came and said, 'Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.' 26 "But his lord answered and said to him, 'You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. 27 So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. 28 Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. 30 And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'


Matthew 24:45-51    NKJV

45 "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. 47 Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, 'My master is delaying his coming,' 49 "and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Religious Form

Matthew 15:3-6    NKJV

3 He answered and said to them, "Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? 4 For God commanded, saying, 'Honor your father and your mother'; and, 'He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.'  5 But you say, 'Whoever says to his father or mother, "Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God"-- 6 then he need not honor his father or mother.' Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition.


Mark 7:6-13    NKJV

6 He answered and said to them, "Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:

'This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me.  7 And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.' 

8 "For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men--the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do." 9 And He said to them, "All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. 10 For Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother'; and, 'He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.'  11 But you say, 'If a man says to his father or mother, "Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban"--' (that is, a gift to God), 12 then you no longer let him do anything for his father or his mother, 13 making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do."


Colossians 2:8    NKJV

8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.


2 Timothy 3:1-5    NKJV

3:1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!


Falling from Islam

Those who are forced to recant while their hearts remain loyal to the Faith shall be absolved; but those who deny Allah after professing Islam and open their bosoms to unbelief shall incur the wrath of Allah; grievous punishment awaits them.  For such men love the life of this world more than the life to come.  Allah does not guide the unbelievers. 


Such are those whose hearts and ears and eyes are sealed by Allah; such are the heedless.  In the life to come they will surely be the losers.

Satan's fall

We created you and gave you form.. Then we said to the angels:  "Prostrate yourselves before Adam."  They all prostrated themselves except Satan, who refused to prostrate himself.


"Why did you not prostrate yourself when I commanded you?" He asked.


"I am nobler than he," he replied.  "You created me from fire, but You created him from clay."


He said: "Get you down hence!  This is no place for your contemptuous pride.  Away with you!  Hence forth you shall be humble."


He replied:  "Reprieve me till the Day of Resurrection."

"You are reprieved," said He.


"Because You have led me into sin,"  he declared, "I will waylay Your servants as they walk on Your straight path, then spring upon them from the front, from the rear, from their right and from their left.  Then You will find the greater part of them ungrateful. 


"Be gone!" He said, "A despicable outcast you shall henceforth be.  As for those that follow you, I shall fill Hell with you all.

Satan’s Fall

Isaiah 14:12-21    NKJV

12 "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! 13 For you have said in your heart:

^  ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;

^  I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north;

^  14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,

^  I will be like the Most High.'

15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.

16 "Those who see you will gaze at you, And consider you, saying: ‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms, 17 Who made the world as a wilderness And destroyed its cities, Who did not open the house of his prisoners?'

18 "All the kings of the nations, All of them, sleep in glory, Everyone in his own house; 19 But you are cast out of your grave Like an abominable branch, Like the garment of those who are slain, Thrust through with a sword, Who go down to the stones of the pit, Like a corpse trodden underfoot. 20 You will not be joined with them in burial, Because you have destroyed your land And slain your people. The brood of evildoers shall never be named. 21 Prepare slaughter for his children Because of the iniquity of their fathers, Lest they rise up and possess the land, And fill the face of the world with cities."


Moses, Israel, the Scriptures, and the Koran

We gave Moses the Book and made it a guide for the Israelites, saying:  “Take no other guardian than Myself.  You are the descendants of those whom We carried in the ark with Noah.  He was a truly thankful servant.


In the Book we solemnly declared to the Israelites:  “Twice you shall do evil in the land.  You shall become great transgressors.”


And when the prophecy of your first transgression came to be fulfilled, We sent against you a formidable army which ravaged your land and carried out the punishment you had been promised.


Then We granted you victory over them and multiplied your riches and your descendants, so that once again you became more numerous than they.  We said:  “If you do good, it shall be to your advantage; but if you do evil, you shall sin against your own souls.”


When the prophecy of your next transgression came to be fulfilled, We sent another army to afflict you and to enter the Temple as the former entered it before, utterly destroying all that they laid their hands on.


We said:  “Your Lord may yet be merciful to you.  If you again transgress, you shall again be scourged.  We have made Hell a prison house for the unbelievers.”


This Koran will give guidance to that which is most upright.  It promises the faithful who do good works a rich recompense, and those who deny the life to come a woeful scourge.  Yet man prays for evil as fervently as he prays for good.  Truly, man is ever impatient.

Moses and the Book of the Law

Exodus 24:3-7    NKJV

3 So Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD and all the judgments. And all the people answered with one voice and said, "All the words which the LORD has said we will do." 4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD. And he rose early in the morning, and built an altar at the foot of the mountain, and twelve pillars according to the twelve tribes of Israel. 5 Then he sent young men of the children of Israel, who offered burnt offerings and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen to the LORD. 6 And Moses took half the blood and put it in basins, and half the blood he sprinkled on the altar. 7 Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the hearing of the people. And they said, "All that the LORD has said we will do, and be obedient."


Deuteronomy 31:24-29    NKJV

24 So it was, when Moses had completed writing the words of this law in a book, when they were finished, 25 that Moses commanded the Levites, who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD, saying: 26 "Take this Book of the Law, and put it beside the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there as a witness against you; 27 for I know your rebellion and your stiff neck. If today, while I am yet alive with you, you have been rebellious against the LORD, then how much more after my death? 28 Gather to me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their hearing and call heaven and earth to witness against them. 29 For I know that after my death you will become utterly corrupt, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days, because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands."
