  • Face to Face : Masrur of Paradise & Maqrur of Fire

  • Levels


    In both Paradise and Hell-fire there are different levels and kinds. There is the Paradise of `Adan, the Paradise of al-Firdaws and many others that we are not acquainted with. The least of these exceeds all that this worldly life can offer.


    Also, there are different levels in the Hell-fire. Saqar is the most horrible place in Hell-fire, in which all the tyrants such as Pharaoh, Haman, Qarun and the like will be thrown.


    The dwellers of Paradise will definitely ask about the dwellers of Saqar.


    Almighty Allah says, {Every person is a pledge for what he has earned except those on the Right, (i.e. the pious true believers of Islamic Monotheism); in Gardens (Paradise) they will ask one another about Al-Mujrimun (polytheists, criminals, disbelievers, etc.), (And they will say to them): "What has caused you to enter Saqar?" They will say: 'we were not of those who used to Offer their Salat (prayers), nor we used to feed Al-Miskin (the poor). And we used to talk Falsehood (all that which Allah hated) with vain talkers. And we used to belie the Day of Recompense until there came to us (the death) that is certain. '(


    Al-Walid ibn al-Mughirah was among those who were in Saqar. The Quraysh summoned him to offer an opinion about the Ever-Glorious Quran. He said, "it is not divine. It is merely some words of a human being."


    Almighty Allah says, {Leave Me Alone (to deal) with whom I created Alone (without any means, i.e. Al-Walid ibn al-Mughirah). And then granted him resources in abundance. And children to be by his side! And made life smooth and comfortable for him! After all that he desires that I should give more! Nay! Verily, he has been stubborn and opposing Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc. ). I shall oblige him to (climb a slippery mountain in the Hell-fire called As Sa'ud, or to) face a severe torment! Verily, he thought and plotted; so let him be cursed! How he plotted! And once more let him be cursed, how he plotted! Then he thought. Then he frowned and he looked in a bad tempered way. Then he turned back and was proud. Then he said: "This is nothing but magic from that of old. This is nothing but the word of a human being! " I will cast him into Hellfire. And what will make you know exactly what Hell-fire is? It spares not (any sinner), nor does it leave (anything unburnt)! Burning the skins! Over it are nineteen (angels as guardians and keepers of Hell).
