The Hell

[2:80] And they say: Fire shall not touch us but for a few days. Say: Have you received a promise from Allah, then Allah will not fail to perform His promise, or do you speak against Allah what you do not know?

[2:81] Yea, whoever earns evil and his sins beset him on every side, these are the inmates of the fire; in it they shall abide.

[4:56] (As for) those who disbelieve in Our communications, We shall make them enter fire; so oft as their skins are thoroughly burned, We will change them for other skins, that they may taste the chastisement; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise.

[7:50] And the inmates of the fire shall call out to the dwellers of the garden, saying: Pour on us some water or of that which Allah has given you. They shall say: Surely Allah has prohibited them both to the unbelievers.

[7:179] And certainly We have created for hell many of the jinn and the men; they have hearts with which they do not understand, and they have eyes with which they do not see, and they have ears with which they do not hear; they are as cattle, nay, they are in worse errors; these are the heedless ones.

[14:15] And they (disbelievers) asked for judgment and every insolent opposer was disappointed:

[14:16] Hell is before him and he shall be given to drink of festering water:

[14:17] He will drink it little by little and will not be able to swallow it agreeably, and death will come to him from every quarter, but he shall not die; and there shall be vehement chastisement before him.

[15:44] It has seven gates; for every gate there shall be a separate party of them (who follow satan).

[18:29] And say: The truth is from your Lord, so let him who please believe, and let him who please disbelieve; surely We have prepared for the iniquitous a fire, the curtains of which shall encompass them about; and if they cry for water, they shall be given water like molten brass which will scald their faces; evil the drink and ill the resting-place.

[25:34] (As for) those who shall be gathered upon their faces to hell, they are in a worse plight and straying farther away from the path.

[35:36] And (as for) those who disbelieve, for them is the fire of hell; it shall not be finished with them entirely so that they should die, nor shall the chastisement thereof be lightened to them: even thus do We re-tribute every ungrateful one.

[35:37] And they shall cry therein for succor: O our Lord ! Take us out, we will do good deeds other than those which we used to do. Did We not preserve you alive long enough, so that he who would be mindful in it should mind? And there came to you the warner; therefore taste; because for the unjust, there is no helper.

[37:62] Is this (heaven) better as an entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum?

[37:63] Surely We have made it (Zaqqum) to be a trial to the unjust.

[37:64] Surely it is a tree that grows in the bottom of the hell;

[37:65] Its produce is as it were the heads of the serpents.

[37:66] Then most surely they (disbelievers) shall eat of it and fill (their) bellies with it.

[37:67] Then most surely they shall have after it to drink of a mixture prepared in boiling water.

[37:68] Then most surely their return shall be to hell.

[38:55] This (shall be so); and most surely there is an evil resort for the inordinate ones;

[38:56] Hell; they shall enter it, so evil is the resting place.

[38:57] This (shall be so); so let them taste it, boiling and intensely cold (drink).

[38:58] And other (punishment) of the same kind, of various sorts.

[38:59] This is an army plunging in without consideration along with you; no welcome for them, surely they shall enter fire.

[38:60] They shall say: Nay! You, no welcome to you: you did proffer it to us, so evil is the resting place.

[38:61] They shall say: Our Lord! Whoever prepared it first for us, add Thou to him a double chastisement in the fire.

[38:62] And they (disbelievers) shall say: What is the matter with us that we do not see men whom we used to count among the vicious?

[38:63] Was it that we (only) took them in scorn, or have our eyes (now) turned aside from them?

[38:64] That most surely is the truth: the contending one with another of the inmates of the fire.

[40:69] Have you not seen those who dispute with respect to the communications of Allah: how are they turned away?

[40:70] Those who reject the Book and that with which We have sent Our Messenger; but they shall soon come to know,

[40:71] When the fetters and the chains shall be on their necks; they shall be dragged

[40:72] Into boiling water, then in the fire shall they be burned;

[40:73] Then shall it be said to them: Where is that which you used to set up

[40:74] Besides Allah? They shall say: They are gone away from us, nay, we used not to call upon anything before. Thus does Allah confound the unbelievers.

[40:75] That is because you exulted in the land unjustly and because you behaved insolently.

[40:76] Enter the gates of hell to abide therein, evil then is the abode of the proud.

[43:74] Surely the guilty shall abide in the chastisement of hell.

[43:75] It shall not be abated from them and they shall therein be despairing.

[43:76] And We are not unjust to them, but they themselves were unjust.

[43:77] And they shall call out: O Malik (angel in charge of hell)! Let your Lord make an end of us. He shall say: Surely you shall tarry.

[44:43] Surely the tree of the Zaqqum,

[44:44] Is the food of the sinful

[44:45] Like dregs of oil; it shall boil in (their) bellies,

[44:46] Like the boiling of hot water.

[44:47] Seize him (wrongdoer and disbeliever), then drag him down into the middle of the hell;

[44:48] Then pour above his head of the torment of the boiling water:

[44:49] Taste; you forsooth are the mighty, the honorable:

[44:50] Surely this is what you disputed about.

[55:43] This is the hell which the guilty called a lie.

[55:44] Round about shall they go between it and hot, boiling water.

[55:45] Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?

[56:41] And those of the left hand, how wretched are those of the left hand!

[56:42] In hot wind and boiling water,

[56:43] And the shade of black smoke,

[56:44] Neither cool nor honorable.

[56:45] Surely they were before that made to live in ease and plenty.

[56:46] And they persisted in the great violation.

[56:47] And they used to say: What! When we die and have become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised?

[56:48] Or our fathers of yore?

[56:49] Say: The first and the last,

[56:50] Shall most surely be gathered together for the appointed hour of a known day.

[56:51] Then shall you, O you who err and call it a lie!

[56:52] Most surely eat of a tree of Zaqqum,

[56:53] And fill (your) bellies with it;

[56:54] Then drink over it of boiling water;

[56:55] And drink as drinks the thirsty camel.

[56:56] This is their entertainment on the day of requital

[67:6] And for those who disbelieve in their Lord is the punishment of hell, and evil is the resort.

[67:7] When they shall be cast therein, they shall hear a loud moaning of it as it heaves,

[67:8] Almost bursting for fury. Whenever a group is cast into it, its keeper shall ask them: Did there not come to you a warner?

[67:9] They shall say: Yea! Indeed there came to us a warner, but we rejected (him) and said: Allah has not revealed anything, you are only in a great error.

[67:10] And they shall say: Had we but listened or pondered, we should not have been among the inmates of the burning fire.

[67:11] So they shall acknowledge their sins, but far will be (forgiveness) from the inmates of the burning fire.

[69:25] And as for him who is given his book in his left hand he shall say: O would that my book had never been given me:

[69:26] And I had not known what my account was:

[69:27] O would that it had made an end (of me):

[69:28] My wealth has availed me nothing:

[69:29] My authority is gone away from me.

[69:30] Lay hold on him, then put a chain on him,

[69:31] Then cast him into the burning fire,

[69:32] Then thrust him into a chain the length of which is seventy cubits.

[69:33] Surely he did not believe in Allah, the Great,

[69:34] Nor did he urge the feeding of the poor.

[69:35] Therefore he has not here today a true friend,

[69:36] Nor any food except refuse,

[69:37] Which none but the wrongdoers eat.

[70:15] By no means! Surely it is a flaming fire

[70:16] Dragging by the head,

[70:17] It shall claim him who turned and fled (from truth),

[70:18] And amasses (wealth) then shuts it up.

[74:27] And what will make you realize what hell is?

[74:28] It leaves naught nor does it spare aught.

[74:29] It scorches the mortal.

[74:30] Over it are nineteen (angels in charge)

[74:31] And We have not made the wardens of the fire others than angels, and We have not made their number but as a trial for those who disbelieve, that those who have been given the book may be certain and those who believe may increase in faith, and those who have been given the book and the believers may not doubt, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the unbelievers may say: What does Allah mean by this parable? Thus does Allah make err whom He pleases, and He guides whom He pleases, and none knows the hosts of your Lord but He Himself; and this is naught but a reminder to the mortals.

[74:32] Nay; I swear by the moon,

[74:33] And the night when it departs,

[74:34] And the daybreak when it shines;

[74:35] Surely it (hell) is one of the gravest (misfortunes),

[74:36] A warning to mortals,

[74:37] To him among you who wishes to go forward or remain behind.

[74:38] Every soul is held in pledge for what it earns,

[74:39] Except the people of the right hand,

[74:40] In gardens, they shall ask each other

[74:41] About the guilty:

[74:42] What has brought you into hell?

[74:43] They shall say: We were not of those who prayed;

[74:44] And we used not to feed the poor;

[74:45] And we used to enter into vain discourse with those who entered into vain discourses.

[74:46] And we used to call the day of judgment a lie;

[74:47] Till death overtook us.

[74:48] So the intercession of intercessors shall not avail them.

[74:49] What is then the matter with them, that they turn away from the admonition

[74:50] As if they were asses taking fright

[74:51] That had fled from a lion?

[74:52] Nay; every one of them desires that he may be given pages spread out;

[74:53] Nay! but they do not fear the hereafter.

[74:54] Nay! it is surely an admonition.

[74:55] So whoever pleases may mind it.

[74:56] And they will not mind unless Allah please. He is worthy to be feared and worthy to forgive.

[76:4] Surely We have prepared for the unbelievers chains and shackles and a burning fire.

[78:21] Surely hell lies in wait,

[78:22] A place of resort for the inordinate,

[78:23] Living therein for ages.

[78:24] They shall not taste therein cool nor drink

[78:25] But boiling and intensely cold water,

[78:26] Requital corresponding.

[78:27] Surely they feared not the account,

[78:28] And called Our communications a lie, giving the lie (to the truth).

[78:29] And We have recorded everything in a book,

[78:30] So taste! For We will not add to you aught but chastisement.

[88:1] Has not there come to you the news of the overwhelming calamity?

[88:2] (Some) faces on that day shall be downcast,

[88:3] Laboring, toiling,

[88:4] Entering into burning fire,

[88:5] Made to drink from a boiling spring.

[88:6] They shall have no food but of thorns,

[88:7] Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger.

[101:8] And as for him whose measure of good deeds is light,

[101:9] His abode shall be the abyss.

[101:10] And what will make you know what it is?

[101:11] A burning fire.
