Hellfire (Jahannam) In the Light of This World (Dunya) That We Can Relate

(Of course, there is no scientific proof of this but it’s based on knowledge that
is beyond reason with reasonable explanation! Only for the believers.
Explanation is meant for getting closer to reality and absoluteness of the
explanation is not intended; however, absoluteness of the facts is absolute to
a believer!)
1.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hell is so deep that if a stone were to be thrown into it, it would
travel for 70 years to reaching at the bottom.
What it means could be this: One can shuttle between this earth and
our sun approximately 75 million times! That deep is the Jahannam!!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Assumptions:
(a) Earth’s environment is used to understand the meaning of “70 years.”
(b) Year is assumed to be a lunar year of Islamic calendar = average 354.37
days per year.
(c) Local Gravitational Constant g = 32.2 ft/sec^2.
From Physics, we know that he equation of motion governing the distance
travelled (in this case the depth of Jahannam) as a function of time t is:
h = {(1/2)*g*t^2}/ (5280) where
h=distance (height, depth, etc.), miles
g = 32.2, ft/sec^2
t = time, seconds
Therefore, h = {(1/2)*g*t^2}/5280
= [(1/2)*(32.2)*{(70)*(354.37)*(24)*(60)*(60)}^2]/5280
= 1.4x1016 miles
Now let us get some perspective on how big this depth is:
The average distance between the earth and sun is 93X106 miles. This means
that the depth of the Jahannam is equal to approximately 75 million times
[(1.4x1016/93X106)/2 (back-and-forth)] one can go and come back from the
earth to the sun (if so possible!)!!!

2.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The breadth of each of the four walls around Hell is equivalent to a
distance covered by a walking journey of 40 years.
What it means could be this: One can approximately shuttle (backand-forth) between New York and Washington, D.C. more 1,040
tomes! That wide is the Jahannam!!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Assumptions:
(a) One can walk approximately 30 miles per day.
(b) Year is assumed to be a lunar year of Islamic calendar = average 354.37
days per year.
Distance travelled in 40 years = 30*354.37*40 = 425,244 miles

1

Now let us get some perspective on how big this breadth (width) is:
The distance between New York City and Washington, D.C. is approximately
204 miles. That means one can go back-and-forth more tan 1,040 times
[(425,244/204)/2 (back-and-forth)] from New York to Washington, D.C. That
is the width of each wall of the Jahannam!!!
3.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hell has 7 gates.
It’s self-explanatory. There could be some divine explanation for
having a specific number 7, which I am not aware of.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hell had been lit for one thousand years until its flames became red.
Again it was heated for another thousand years till its color became
white. Still again it was burnt for further thousand years and its white
color flames turned pitch black.
See the following website to understand the relation between Fire
temperature and color:
http://www.55a.net/firas/english/?page=show_det&id=111
It’s an amazing and dreadful explanation! May Allah (SWT) save us all
from the fire, that’s the Hellfire!! Ameen.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Even the fiercest fire of this world is 70 fold cooler than the fire of
Hell.
Let us assume that the hottest fire that we humans can think of is of
“the black body radiation (idealistic)”. The black body radiation law is
like this:
“The light density is in proportion with the wavelength and
temperature of the material. One can determine the color of the
spectrum light of the heated material depending only upon its
temperature. This means that there is a direct proportion between
the temperature and the light color.
When we heat any material, the first color –resulting from heating –
to appear is red, which is the coldest of all, contrary to our belief!!!
The white color is the central color or the Balance Color. Scientists
nowadays measure color according the temperature connected with
it; the temperature of red color is about 1,800 K, the yellowish white
–similar to the mid day color when the sun is shinning is 6,000 K .
The blue color temperature amounts to 10,000 K. So we come to the

2

conclusion that the red color is colder than the blue color and this
scientific fact which scientists have recently discovered by
measurements, numbers and experiments. So we find those who are
concerned with colors make the white color a central color and call it
the " white balance "
The black color is the last to appear. You must have heard about the
black holes. It is a star that exploded and plunged down and
compressed by the act of the high gravity and diminished leaving a
hole that can not be seen –this is a body of unconceivable high
temperature.” *
* See http://www.55a.net/firas/english/?page=show_det&id=111.
Let’s limit our imagination only to color blue for our convenience of
understanding at 10,000 K and call it the hottest fire on the earth!
This is 70 times cooler than the fire in the Hellfire!! This means that
the Hellfire is at the temperature of 700,000 K!!! May Allah (SWT),
bless us all with His Mercy, otherwise we are doomed beyond
imagination!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------6.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The lightest punishment in Hell would be the wearing of “Fiery shoes"
which would cause one's brain to boil.
It’s self-explanatory. Again, beyond our grasp! What happens to rest
of the body if the brain is boiling! Na’oodhu-bi-Allah (We seek refuge
in Allah, the Most Exalted)…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hell is infested with venomous donkeys and if they were to bite a
person then he or she will suffer pain for 40 years.
It’s self-explanatory. Again, beyond our grasp! Subhaanallah (Glory
be to Allah, the Most Exalted)…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------8. For food, the dweller of Hell would be given Zaqqum which is a prickly
tree, so bitter, that even if a single molecule of it were to spill onto this
earth it would make all the foodstuff of the world bitter and unpalatable.
…And the dwellers of the Hellfire would be eating it all the times
without any recourse…Can we imagine this?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------9.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------For drinking, the denizen of Hell would be provided with hot, boiling
pus mixed with blood, matter, urine and tears etc. of the dwellers of
Hell. If a bucket of this foul liquid were to be splashed over this earth,
the entire world would be upset and disrupted by its most foul stink.

Wastaghfirullah… Wastaghfirullah… Wastaghfirullah…
Wastaghfirullah……….
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------10.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Boiling water would be poured over Jahannami's head and this will
cause their internal organs to melt and leak out through their feet.
It’s self-explanatory. Again, beyond our grasp! What happens to rest
of the body! Na’oodhu-bi-Allah (We seek refuge in Allah, the Most
Exalted)…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

11.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The inmates of Hell would be lashed with heavy clubs of iron. If one
such club was to be placed upon this earth, the combined strength of
all the human beings, as well as all the Jinns, would fail to lift it; and
if a mountain is struck with one of these clubs it would cause the
whole mountain to disintegrate.
This punishment seems to be unbearable…just to think about…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

12.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The dwellers of Hell would be burnt daily for 70 thousand times.
Every time, after the skin and flesh is burnt; they would be restored
to life so that they can continuously taste this punishment.
What it means is this: (24 hours/day)*(60 minutes/hour)*(60
seconds/minute)/70,000 = 1.234; meaning a Jahannami would be
going through the above punishment almost every second!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

13.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------A drunkard will be given blood, pus, sweat, filth, etc. to drink in hell.
Pure horror…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

14.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------All the haughty people will be gathered in the Hereafter and driven
towards Hell but their bodies would be reduced to the size of ants and
they will be given to consume the excretions of the dwellers of Hell.
Beyond words…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

15.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Some sinners would be made to climb “SAUD” which is a mountain of
fire in Hell, and then dropped from its peak and this process would
continue forever and ever.
May Allah (SWT) save us all from such punishment…

4

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

16.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The dwellers of Hell would be bound in chains which would be greater
in length than the distance between the sky and the earth.
O Allah! Please save us from such chain…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

17.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The clothes of sinners in Hell would be highly inflammable.
How one could can bear such punishment…and yet, it’s going to
happen…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

18.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Beside physical torture, the dwellers of Hell would also be subjected
to mental harassment through the taunting by the guardian of Hell
who will remind them of their misdeed on earth and remarks "Now
tastes the fire" etc.
This is called oil over fire, but it’s coming from our Creator (SWT); so
no questions asked!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

19.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The sinners and disbelievers would be humiliated to such an extent
that besides their revolting ugliness and pitch black faces, their upper
lips would be touching their foreheads and the lower lip dangling
around the navel.
Can we imagine this?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

20.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The dwellers of Hell would weep so much and shed so much of tears
and blood that furrows would be formed on their cheeks.
Oh Allah!...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

21.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The tongues of Hell-inmates would be so long and protruding from
there mouths that others would trample and step on them.
…Please save us all from this, my Lord, Rabbul Aalameen…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

22.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Shayateen will also rebuke the denizens of Hell.

5

How come? Walllhu Aalam…
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------23.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The dwellers of Hell would display their rage and fury on those who
led them astray.
And we know that it’s too late…if we knew!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

24.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The inhabitants of Hell would appeal to the guardians of Jahannam to
intercede on their behalf in the court of Allah but their pleas would
reject. They would make direct supplication to Allah but their prayers
would not be granted.
…and that to no avail…alas!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

25.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------They will then abide forever in Hell, continuously lamenting and
braying like asses (jungle animals).
Oh Allah! Save us all from this…Make us worthy of your Jannah, and
bless us all with Jannutul Firduas, Ameen.
