Question

Greetings. How will the people of Hell be able to speak in 7.50 ? I mean : How can I person speak when he is burning in fire ? Reply me as soon as possible. Its urgent!

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

You should know that the matters of the Hereafter are not to be judged according to the standards of this worldly life. What is inconceivable and impossible in the worldly life may be absolutely conceivable and possible on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, highlighted this in the Hadeeth related by Anas  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him: “A man asked the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, ‘Oh Messenger of Allaah, how would the disbeliever be made to assemble on the Day of Resurrection (crawling) on his face?’ He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Is He Who made him walk on his feet in this world not able to make him (crawl) on his face on the Day of Resurrection?’” [Al-Bukhari and Mulsim] Just as the people of Hellfire shall not die therein, unlike the worldly life, they will also speak and scream in the Hellfire as stated in the Quran. Allaah, The Exalted, says (what means):

·    {And they will call, “O Maalik, let your Lord put an end to us!” He will say, “Indeed, you will remain.”} [Quran 43:77]

·    {And they will cry out therein, “Our Lord, remove us; we will do righteousness - other than what we were doing!” But did We not grant you life enough for whoever would remember therein to remember, and the warner had come to you? So taste [the punishment], for there is not for the wrongdoers any helper.} [Quran 35:37]

The people of Hellfire will speak and scream, and this is not difficult for Allaah; He is All-powerful and Omnipotent. Nothing is difficult for Him, for there is no limit to His ability and power. For more benefit, refer to Fatwa 3818 and 36931.

Allaah Knows best.
