  • Will Only Muslims Go To Jannah? Non-Muslims Necessarily Doomed In The Hereafter?

    Posted by Umer on June 25, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    It is generally held that all non-Muslims will necessarily go to Hell. Verses like the following usually form the basis of this view:

    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَـابِ وَالْمُشْرِكِينَ فِى نَارِ جَهَنَّمَ خَـالِدِينَ فِيهَآ أَوْلَـئِكَ هُمْ شَرُّ الْبَرِيَّةِ (98 :6)

    These disbelievers among the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] and the Idolaters shall burn for ever in the fire of Hell. They are the vilest of all creatures. (98:6)[7]

    It must be appreciated that these verses speak of the Jews and Christians and the Idolaters of the Prophet Muhammad’s (sws) times, who had deliberately denied the message of Muhammad (sws). As far as the non-Muslims of later times are concerned, they will meet this fate only if they are not sincere seekers of the truth and also deny the messengerhood of Muhammad (sws) in spite of being convinced about its veracity.

    Why is this not the opinion of other scholars ? Also is there any other scholar in the history of that opinion other than Ghamidi sahb?

    @MS25 after what is clearly stated in Quran 2:62 and 5:69, does it really matter what other past or present scholars say about this matter?

    I am not sure about scholars but Sahabas attitude does matter, I guess

    Personally to me if the Quran has stated something clearly and categorically – not even once but twice – and I have believed in the Quran as an uncorrupted word of God, then the buck stops there – I really need not look anywhere else.

    Quran was revealed among those people , so I guess they would have better understood than this generation, so their behavior matters

      Which behavior of Sahaba in particular are you referring to?
