It is Allah's Mercy that
He had informed us of what would await us in Hellfire of painful and never-ending torment, for this is certainly one of the
main driving forces that lead man to observe and fulfill Allah's commandments.
This is a vast subject, and as much
as Muslims acquire knowledge in it, as much as their fear from Allah and their sincerity with Him will increase, Allah willing.
We will touch on this subject lightly, asking Allah that this will be of benefit for all His slaves.
of Allah, (p.b.u.h.), said, what translated means, “The distance between the two shoulders of the disbeliever in Hellfire
is the distance that a fast rider takes in three days.” (Al- Bukhari & Muslim). “The Kafir’s tooth (in
Hellfire) is as big as Mount Uhud, and the thickness of his skin is the distance taken in three (days by a traveler).”
(Muslim). “Crying will be permitted for the people of the Fire, and they will cry until the tears finish. Then, they
will cry blood until it (the blood) leaves tunnels in their faces, that if ships are let go in them (the tunnels in their
faces), they (the ships) will sail!” (Ibn Majah). “The big, fat man will come on the Day of Resurrection and he
will not weigh more than a mosquito’s wing in Allah's Sight.” (Al-Bukhari & Muslim), and, “The Fire

what he had done. He will look to his left, and he will only find what he had done. He will look forward, and he will only
find the Fire in front of his face. Therefore, seek safety from the Fire, even with half a date (that you give in charity).”
(Al- Bukhari & Muslim), and, “If a drop of Zaqqoom (a tree that grows in Hellfire) is dropped on this Dunya (this
world), it will spoil the lives of the people of the Dunya. So how about those whose food is from it?” (Ahmad, An-Nasai
& Ibn Majah).
The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h.), also said, what translated means, “When Allah created Paradise,
He said to Jibreel, ‘Go and look at it.’ He went and had a look at it and came back, saying, ‘O Lord! By
