Islamic References: Hi all readers! In this article I will explain food and drink for people in Hell. Hell is a place of torment. Is it possible to imagine what they eat and drink? This is the explanation!
In Daqa’iqu al-Akhbar fi Dzikri al-Jannati wa an-Nar is explained;
The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, ” How pitiful are people in Hell! If they ask for rain water then the black clouds are lifted. They then said, “Rain comes from ar-Rahman (Allah). The rain then lowered a rain of stones made of fire that fell on their heads and then came out of their anus. Then they asked Allah for a thousand years that He would give them rain. Then a black cloud appeared. They then said, “This is a cloud that will rain. The clouds then lowered the snakes by the necks of the camels above them. Whoever has been stung by the snake, the pain will not disappear for a thousand years.”
The information above is the purpose of the word of Allah Taala;
ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَصَدُّواْ عَن سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ زِدۡنَٰهُمۡ عَذَابٗا فَوۡقَ ٱلۡعَذَابِ بِمَا كَانُواْ يُفۡسِدُونَ ٨٨
(As for) those who disbelieve and turn away from Allah’s way, We will add chastisement to their chastisement because they made mischief. (An-Nahl ; 88).
The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “How pitiful are people in Hell! They called for the angel Malik for seventy thousand years, but he did not answer them. They then said, “O our Lord! Indeed, the angel Malik did not answer us. “Allah Taala then said, “O angel Malik! Answer the inhabitants of Hell! “Angel Malik then said, “What are you saying, O people who are angry with God! O people in Hell!” They then said, “Angel Malik! Give us water drinks so we can feel relieved by that. Truly the fire has eaten our flesh and our bones, made our skin mature, crushed our bones and cut our hearts.” He (angel Malik) then gave them boiling water drinks. If they take it with their hands, their fingers will fall. If the water reaches their faces, their eyes and cheeks will scatter. If the water has entered their stomachs, the water will support their intestines and liver.”
Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ahu alayhi wa sallam said, “How pitiful are the people in Hell! If they ask for food, the Zaqqum tree will come. They then eat it. Their brains and molars boil. Fire will come out of their mouths. Their bodies will fall on their feet.”
Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ahu alayhi wa sallam said, “How pitiful are the people in Hell! They wear clothes made of pitch. If the clothes are placed on their bodies, their skin will peel off. Those who are miserable are in Hell in a blind condition. They are blind, cannot see, mute cannot speak, deaf cannot hear. Everyone who is hungry wants food except those in Hell. Every person who is naked wants clothes except those in Hell. Every person who dies wants to live except people in Hell. Indeed, they expect death.”
All Readers! That is a brief explanation of food and drink for people in Hell. Hopefully we are not one of them. Amen!
