    السلام علیکم

    سوال یہ ہے کہ جو اللہ ستر ماوں سے زیادہ پیار کرتا ہے وہ پھر 60 سال کی زندگی کے گناہ پر اگلی پوری زندگی ہمیں جلائے گا عذاب دے گا۔۔۔ماں تو ایسا نہی کرسکتی

    First of all, understand that there is no Hadith about Allah loving more than 70 mothers. The closest incident was that a child was lost and when the mother found him, she was happy. So the Prophet (PBUH) said that would she throw the child in the fire for the distress the child caused her and the Sahabah said no. And so he said that Allah is kinder than that mother because when a lost Muslim repents and return to Allah, He does not throw him in the Hellfire. So that’s what Prophet (PBUH) meant about comparing Allah to a mother. It’s about Allah being motherly to a repenting servant, not Him giving punishment.

    Secondly, understand that Allah is not just motherly, He is also Just, He is also a giver of stern punishment. Understand Allah in all His attributes. So suppose if a mother is also a judge, then she will have to punish her own child if he is a criminal because that is what justice demands. Same is the case with Allah.

    Thirdly, Allah in His concept of Justice has warned people that the punishment for a particular crime can be eternal Hell. That crime is kufr. After Allah reveals the truth and people intentionally reject the truth, and continue to reject truth even after much advice, warning and time to repent then Allah says that such a person is deserving of eternal Hell. Similarly if a person spends 60 years of doing good, Allah gives him an eternal reward. Because these things are not given based on the time period of the action, they are given based on the magnitude of the action. So Allah is saying that kufr, sarkashi, intentional rebellion, even after much warning, is a crime worthy of eternal punishment.

    Fourthly, Understand that everything in the Qur’an regarding Allah’s punishment of Hereafter is a warning. What He will actually do, it yet to be seen. But to convey the severity of the crime, He tells you the possible punishment for it. So if He didn’t warn of an eternal punishment then it would undermine the severity of the crime i.e kufr. But what He will actually do, we will see on Day of Judgment.
