The Foundations And Concepts of Islam
"The sinner would desire to ransom himself from the punishment of that Day by his children; and his wife and his brother and his kindred who sheltered him, and all that are in the earth, so that it might save him."
For, that abode is that of recompense and not of wishful thinking. Man must therefore, get a reward for his deed; if it is good he gets good reward and if it is evil, he gets rewarded with punishment. And the worst punishment that a disbeliever may meet on the Day of Resurrection is that of Fire in which Allaah has provided different kinds of retribution for its dwellers so that they can taste the torment of their deeds. Allaah says,
"This is the Hell which the sinners (disbelievers) denied. They will go between it and the fierce boiling water."
He also informs us of the garments of the dwellers of Hell,
"As for those who disbelieved, garments of fire will be cut out for them, boiling water will be poured down over their heads. With it will melt (or vanish away) what is within their bellies as well as their skins; and for them are hooked rods of iron."
O man! You were before a non-existent. Allaah says,
"Does not man remember that We created him before while he was nothing?"
