The Worst Evil De


The Worst Evil Deeds of Those Who Will Remain Forever in

Qur'an speaks at length of the evil deeds for which those who will abide
in the Hell forever deserve their never-ending fate. Here we will mention
the most serious of them.


(1) Kufr and Shirk
: Allah (swt) tells us that it will
be said to those who disbelieved, when they are in the Fire, that Allah's
hatred of them will be greater than their own hatred towards themselves
because of their disbelief. Then He explains that their eternal fate in
Hell is because of their kufr and shirk:

"The unbelievers will be addressed: "Greater was the
aversion of Allah to you than [is] your aversion to yourselves, seeing
that you were called to the Faith but you used to refuse. They will say,
"Our Rabb! Twice have You made us without life, and twice have You given
us life! Now have we recognised our sins: is there any way out [of this]?"
[The answer will be]: "This is because, when Allah was invoked as the
Only [object of worship] you did reject Faith, but when partners were
joined to Him, you believed! The Command is only with Allah, All-High,

Allah (swt) tells us that the keeper of Hell will ask the
kuffaar as they are approaching Hell:

"Did there not come to you your messengers with clear

The response will be that they deserved Hell because they
disbelieved in the Messengers and their Message:

"They will say, "Yes indeed; a Warner did come to us, but we
rejected him" and said: "Allah never sent down any [Message] you are in
nothing but a great error!"

Concerning those who disbelieved in the Qur'an, Allah (swt)

"for We have sent you a Message from Our own presence. If
any do turn away therefrom, verily they will bear a burden on the Day of
Judgement. They will abide in this [state] and grievous will that burden
be to them on that Day".

Concerning those who disbelieve the Qur'an and associate
partners with Allah (swt), Allah (swt) says:

"Those who reject the Book and the [Revelations] with which
We sent Our Messengers: but soon shall they know, when the yokes [shall
be] round their necks, and the chains, they shall be dragged along. In the
boiling fetid fluid, then in the Fire shall they be burned. Then shall it
be said to them, "Where are the deities to which you gave part-worship in
derogation to Allah? They will reply: "They have left us in the lurch.
Nay, we invoked not, of old, anything [that had real existence]." Thus
does Allah leave the unbelievers to stray. That was because you were want
to rejoice on the earth in things other than the Truth, and that you were
want to be ignorant. Enter the gates of Hell, to dwell therein and evil is
[this] abode of the arrogant".

Concerning those kuffaar and mushrikeen who regarded their gods
as equal to the Rabb of the Worlds, Allah (swt) says:

"Then they will be thrown headlong into the [Fire] - they and
those straying in Evil and the whole hosts of Iblees together. They will
say there in their mutual bickerings: "By Allah, we were truly in an
error manifest, when we held you [false gods] as equals with the Rabb of
the Worlds"


Concerning the fate on the Day of Judgement of those who
disbelieved, Allah said:

"If you do marvel [at their want of faith] strange is their
saying: "When we are [actually] dust, shall we indeed then be a creation
renewed?" They are those who disbelieve in their Rabb! They are those
around whose necks will be yokes [of servitude]. They will be Companions
of the Fire to dwell therein [for aye]!"


"..their abode will be Hell; every time it shows abatement,
We shall increase for them the fierceness of the Fire. That is their
recompense, because they rejected Our Signs and said, "When we are reduced
to bones and broken fragments, should we really be raised up [to be] a new
" (17:97-98)

(2) Failing
to fulfill the legislated duties
, as well as
denying the Day of Judgement. Allah (swt) tells us that the people of
Paradise will ask the people of Hell:

"What led you into Hellfire?"

They will reply: "..We were not of those who prayed, Nor
were we of those who fed the indigent, But we used to talk vanities with
vain talkers, And we used to deny the Day of Judgement, Until there came
to us [the Hour] that is certain."

(3) Obeying the
misguided leaders of kufr
and accepting
the principles by means of which they mislead people and turn them away
from the religion of Allah (swt) as taught by the Prophets:

"And We have destined for them intimate companions [of like
nature] who made alluring to them what was before them and what was behind
them. And the Sentence among the previous generations of jinns and men who
have passed away, is proved against them; for they are utterly lost. The
unbelievers say: "Listen not to this Qur'an but talk at random in the
midst of its [reading] that you may gain the upper hand!" But We shall
certainly give the unbelievers a taste of a severe penalty, and We shall
requite them the worst of their deeds. Such is the requital of the enemies
of Allah - the Fire, therein will be for them the eternal home, a [fit]
requital for that they used to reject Our Signs"


When the kuffaar are thrown into Hell they will be filled with
regret for having disobeyed Allah and His Messenger and having followed
their masters and leaders:

"Verily Allah has cursed the unbelievers and has prepared
for them a blazing Fire, to dwell therein; no protector will they find,
nor helper. The Day that their faces will be turned upside down in the
Fire, they will say, "Woe to us! Would that we had obeyed Allah and
obeyed the Messenger". And they would say, "Our Rabb! We obeyed our chiefs
and our great ones and they misled us as from the [Right] Path".


(4) Hypocrisy

Allah promised Hell to the hypocrites, a promise that He has
taken upon Himself to never break:

"Allah has promised the hypocrites, men and women, and the
rejecters of Faith, the fire of Hell, therein shall they dwell. Sufficient
is it for them. For them is the curse of Allah and an enduring
" (9:68)

has told us that the position of the hypocrites is the lowest level of
Hell, which si where the heat and agony are most intense:

"The hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire; no
helper will you find for them".


This is a quality shared by most of the people of Hell. Allah
(swt) says:

"But those who reject Our Signs and treat them with
arrogance - they are the Companions (dwellers) of the Fire, to dwell
therein [forever]
" (7:36)

Muslim devoted a chapter of his Saheeh to this issue, entitled
Baab an-Naar Yadhkhulha al-Jabbaaroon wal-Jannah yadkhuluha ad-du'afaa
(Hell will be entered by the arrogant and Paradise will be entered by the
weak). In this chapter he refers to the debate between Paradise and Hell,
what they said and what Allah (swt) sad to them. Muslim quotes the
hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah (ra) which goes back to the Prophet (saw), in
which it is stated that Hell said, "The arrogant and proud will
enter me.
" According to another report, Hell said, "I will
become rich (have too many) from the proud and arrogant".
(swt) said, "You are My Punishment with which I will punish
whomsoever I will".
(Sahih Muslim, 4/2186, no. 2846)

al-Bukhaari, Muslim and at-Tirmidhi report from Harithah ibn
Wahb that the Messenger of Allah (swt) said: "Shall I not
tell you about the people of Paradise? Every meek person who is
considered to be so humble that if he were to adjure something by
Allah (swt), He would fulfil it for him. Shall I not tell you about
the people of Hell? Every haughty, greedy and proud person.
(Jaami' al-Usool, 10/547, no. 8111)

According to a report given by Muslim, he (saw) said,
"Every proud mean and arrogant person".
This is confirmed by the

"Is there not in Hell an abode for the Haughty [i.e.
" (39:60)

"But today shall you be recompensed with a penalty of
humiliation for that

you were
arrogant on earth without just cause, and that you [ever]


"Then, for such as had transgressed all bounds, and
had preferred the life of this world, the Abode will be
