Who'll be in Hell ??

Anas (Rz) reports that once  Jibreel(عليه السلا) came to Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)
in such a state that he was overcome with fear and his
face had become pale. Prophet (صلىالله عليه وسلم)
had never seen him in this condition before.
When Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) enquired
about the reason for this condition, Jibreel
(عليه السلام) replied that he had seen such a scene from
Hell. On such a day when no person (who had
seen the same) would rest until he was assured
protection therefrom.
Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) then asked
him to describe what he saw. He said, "When Allah
created Hell, he stoked the fire for a thousand
years until it was red. Thereafter He stoked it for
another thousand years until it became white. He then
kindled it for another thousand years until it became
as black and dark as it is presently.
The flames and coals of Hell never remain silent.
By Allah if even the extent of a needle's eye of
Hell was released to this world, the entire universe
would burn to cinders."
"If the clothing of a person from Hell was to be
suspended between the earth and the sky, the stench
and heat emitting there from would kill the entire
universe. If a single chain from the 'Salaasil' mentioned
in the Qur'aan is placed upon a mountain, it would melt
and sink below the surface. I f a person in the east was
afflicted with the punishment of Hell, the people
in the west would be scorched with the heat."
"The heat of Hell is extremely intense and it is
exceptionally deep. The jewellery of the person in
Hell will be iron, his drink will be boiling puss
and his clothing will be fire .Hell has seven doors.
Every man and woman entering each door has been
Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) asked him
whether the doors were like those of earthly homes.
He replied, "No. They are vaster on the top and
beneath. Their width is a distance of seventy years and
each door is seventy times hotter than the next. The
enemies of Allah will be dragged to the doors and will
be received with yokes and chains. When a chain is
put in their mouths it will emerge from their posteriors.
Their hands will also be handcuffed."
"With each human in Hell there will be a shaytaan.
The angels will then drag them on their faces into
Hell, beating them with iron hammers. Whenever
they will try to escape from Hell they will be
beaten back."
Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) enquired from
Jibreel (عليه السلام) as to who will be in all these
various doors. Jibreel (عليه السلام) replied, "The lowest
door (level) will be for the Munafiqeen, the people of
the Maa'idah and the people of Fir'oun. This level is
called 'Haawiya.' On the next level, called 'Jaheem,'
will be the Mushrikeen, while the Sabaians will occupy
the third level, which is called 'Saqar.' Iblees and his
comrades will be in the fourth level called 'Lazaa,' and
the fifth level, known as 'Hutama' is reserved for the
Jews. The Christians will then be on the sixth level
called 'Sa'eer."
Thereafter Jibreel (عليه السلام) remained silent,
whereupon Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)
asked, "Why have you remained silent? Who
will occupy the seventh level?" Feeling ashamed,
Jibreel (عليه السلام) said, "This level will be occupied by those
members of your ummah who commit major sins and
die without repenting." Unable to bear this Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) fell down unconscious.
Jibreel (عليه السلام) then took the head of Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) upon his lap. When
Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) recovered he
asked Jibreel (عليه السلام) whether any members of
his ummah will really enter Hell. Jibreel
(عليه السلام) replied, "Yes. Those who commit major sins and
die without repenting." Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)
then burst out in tears and Jibreel
(عليه السلام) also did the same.
After this Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) only
left the house for salaah and did not mix with anyone.
He would begin and terminate the salaah in tears. On
the third day Abu Bakr (R.A) came to the
house of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and
requested permission to enter. When he received no
reply he returned in tears.
The same happened to Umar (R.A). Thereafter
Salmaan Farsi (R.A) also requested permission
to enter and he was extremely perturbed when he did
not receive a reply. In his anxiety he stood awhile,
then sat, then returned to his home, only to go back
to the house of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).
He then went to the house of Fatima (R.A).
When he related the incident to her, she immediately
adorned her shawl and preceded to the house of her
father Cصلى الله عليه وسلم).
Arriving at the door she greeted with salam and said
that she was Fatima. At that time Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) was prostrating and
weeping for his ummah. He then raised his head and
exclaimed, "The coolness of my eyes Fatima! What is
the matter?" He then asked his wife to allow
Fatima (R.A) in. When she noticed how pale her father
had become and that exuberance from his face was
missing, she began to weep most  bitterly .
When she asked him the reason for this condition of
his, Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) replied,
" Jibreel (عليه السلام) has informed me about the
conditions in Hell and told me that the uppermost
level will be occupied by those people of my ummah
who commit major sins and die without repenting. This has caused me
the grief that you see."
She enquired from Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)
about the condition in which these people
will be entered into Hell. Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) replied, "The angels will drag them
into Hell, but their faces will not be darkened,
their eyes will not be blue, their mouths will not be
sealed, there will be no shaytaan with them and they
will not be shackled in chains and yokes."
She then asked how will they be dragged into Hell.
Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) replied by
saying that the men will be dragged by their beards
and the women by their hair. These people, male and
female, young and old, will scream and cry because of
the disgrace that they suffer. When they will be brought
to Hell, the doorkeeper (Maalik) will enquire,
"Who are these people? They are unique because their
faces are not darkened, their eyes are not blue, their
mouths are not sealed, there are no shayateen with
them, and they are not shackled in yokes and chains."
The angels will reply that they have no knowledge
about the identities of these people and that they were
merely commanded to present them to him. He will
then address them saying, 'Oh you wretched ones! You
tell me who you are." [According to another narration,
they will shout, "Oh Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم)!
Oh Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم)!"
as they will be dragged. However-, they
will forget this when they see the doorkeeper of
When he asks them, they will reply, 'We are those to
whom the Qur'aan was revealed and upon whom the
fasts on Ramadhaan were made compulsory.' He will
say, 'But the Qur'aan was revealed to Muhammad
(صلى الله عليه وسلم .' Upon hearing this they
will exclaim, 'We are from the ummah of Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم).' Maalik will tell them,
'Did the Qur'aan not warn you against disobeying
when they see the fire from the door, they will plead
with him to allow them to weep over themselves. They
will the weep till their tears dry up and are replaced by
tears of blood. As they weep, he will tell them, 'If only
this weeping had taken place in the world, then you
would not have been weeping here.' They will then be
cast into Hell by his command.

As they are thrown therein, they will all cry out in one
voice saying, "Laa ilaaha IIIAllah." Upon hearing this,
the fire will withdraw from them. When Maalik will
enquire about this, the fire will submit, 'How could I
seize them when their tongues hymn the kalimah of
Tauheed?" When this will recur several times Maalik
will say that they can only be burned when Allah
The fire will reach till the feet of some of them, till the
knees of others, till the waists of others and up to the
throats of some. When the fire will approach their faces,
Maalik will instruct the fire not to burn their faces and
their hearts because they prostrated in salaah and
observed fasts during Ramadhaan. These people will
suffer for their sins and remain in Hell till Allah
desires that they should emerge there from. They will
constantly call out, 'Ya Hannaan! Ya Mannaan! Ya
Arhamar Raahimeen!"
Eventually a day will come when Allah will instruct
Jibreel (عليه السلام) to find out about the ummah of
Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). He will hasten
to Hell and will find Maalik on a pulpit in the
centre of Hell. Maalik will rise to receive him and
will enquire about the reason for his visit.
Jibreel (عليه السلام) will reply that he had arrived to find out
about the ummah of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).
Maalik will reply that they are in a miserable condition
and in a very confined place. He will add that the fire
had burnt all of their bodies except their faces and
hearts. These two will still glow with the light of Imaan.
Jibreel (عليه السلام) will request to see them. When
they see jibreel (عليه السلام), they will realize that
he is not one of the angels of punishment. They will
not have seen such a beautiful countenance before.
They will be told that this is Jibreel (عليه السلام), who
brought revelation to Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم), upon hearing his name, they will call
out, 'Oh Jibreel! Convey our salaams to our leader
Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and tell him
that our sins have separated us from him and destroyed us.'
When Jibreel (عليه السلام) will return to Allah and
relate the incident to Him, Allah will ask him what
these people requested him to do. He will say that they
requested that their salaams be conveyed to Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) and that he be informed
of their condition. Allah will command him to fulfill
the request.
He will hasten to Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم),
who will be relaxing in a palace made of
earl. It shall have four thousand entrances, each one
Eaving two doors of gold. After greetin with salaam,
Hadhrat Jibreel (عليه السلام) will tell Rasulullaa a (sallAllahualaihi-
wasallam) that he had just returned from the
sinners of his ummah. He will tell Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) that these people had
convey their salaams to him and wished to inform
him of their miserable plight.
Hearing this, Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)
will immediately fall in prostration beneath Allah's
throne and praise Allah with such words that he never
knew before. Allah will say, "Oh Muhammad! Raise
your head. Ask and you will be granted. I f you wish to
intercede then do so. Your intercession will surely be
Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) will submit,
"Oh my Rabb! Your decision has been passed with
regard to the sinful ones of my ummah and they have
been punished for their sins. Please accept my
intercession on their behalf." Allah will declare, "The
command has been issued and your intercession is
accepted. You go personally and remove from Hell
Person who recited "Laa ilaaha IIIAllah."
Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) will then
approach the doorkeeper of Hell. Upon seeing
him, Maalik will rise in reverence. Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) will say, "Oh Maalik! How
are the sinners of my ummah?" Maalik will reply by
saying that their condition is miserable inaction. When
the door of Hell will be opened, the sinful Muslims
in Hell will cry out, "Oh Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم ()! The fire has burnt our skins and
It will be then that, the death shall be presented as a sheep
and slaughtered before the people of Jannah and the
people of Hell. They will then be told, "Now none
shall ever die. Each person will remain forever where
he is." 
[May Allah save us all from Hell . Ameen.]
