The Hell is a dire abode

Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) – 13

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

   لِلَّذِينَ ٱسْتَجَابُوا۟ لِرَبِّهِمُ ٱلْحُسْنَىٰ وَٱلَّذِينَ لَمْ يَسْتَجِيبُوا۟ لَهُۥ لَوْ أَنَّ لَهُم مَّافِى ٱلْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا وَمِثْلَهُۥ مَعَهُۥ لَٱفْتَدَوْا۟ بِهِۦٓ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ لَهُمْ سُوٓءُ ٱلْحِسَابِ وَمَأْوَىٰهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ وَبِئْسَ ٱلْمِهَادُ 18

18.  For those who answered Allah’s call is bliss. And for those who answered not His call, if they had all that is in the earth, and therewith the like thereof, they would proffer it as ransom. Such will have a woeful reckoning, and their habitation will be Hell, a dire abode. 18.  Lilla-ziinas-tajaabuu  li-Rabbi-himul-Husnaa.  Walla-ziina  lam  yasta-jiibuu  laHuu  law  ‘anna  lahumm-maa  fil-‘arzi  Jamii-‘anw-wa  mis-lahuu  ma-‘ahuu  lafta-daw-  bih.  ‘Ulaaa-‘ika  lahum  suuu-‘ul-hisaab.  Wa  ma’-waahum  Jahannam.  Wa  bi’-sal-mihaad.

(Part One–Half) (Section -2) 




It is commanded that those people, who accept the truth which the Messengers (peace be upon them) disclosed before them; and they reflect in the verses of Holy Qur’aan, and they perform according to the commandments of their Lord, these are the people who understood the Truth. Now it will be useful for them in the world as well as in the Hereafter (in both conditions).


But those people who did not obey the commandment of their Lord, they would be empty-handed after death. There, they will know the reality of worldly goods and property that it all was like dirt, filth and useless swelling foam only, which had been assembled around actual matters. On that Day (the Day of Resurrection), if they had all such things, in addition, along with it, they had therewith the like thereof, they would be ready to proffer it all at once, for saving themselves from the Doom, but at that time, it would not be in their possession. Then they would have to face a woeful reckoning of their wicked deeds, in which they will not be able to get any favor. At last they will be thrown into the Hell, which is a dire abode and in which; there is nothing but suffering, pain and distress.
