hat a difference it would make to one’s life if one were allowed towitness with one’s own eyes the demons of Hell punishing theirvictims, the roaring of the flames, the mad yelling of the damned,their unbearable moaning and groaning, their writhing for breath and theirfrantic begging to be allowed to be returned to Earth. Without a doubt, onewould become a new person, one would rearrange one’s entire life. If it is the fact that we have not seen Hell that is preventing some peoplefrom fearing Allah as they should and being cautious in their daily lives, itshould suffice that He has indicated the existence of Hell repeatedly in theQur’an, describing it in all its details and warning people against it. When the time comes there will be no one who will not see Hell. Onlythose who fear Allah will be saved from it, the others will be left in it ontheir knees.
