Extreme Torture in Hell

O Kumail! Let those who are not in Paradise be ready for the extreme torture in Hell, everlasting disgrace, shackles, bridles, long chains, large pieces of fire, neighbourhood of every devil, purulent drinks, clothes made of iron, harsh guards, blazing fire, and closed and locked doors. The inmates of Hell will be screaming, but, will not be answered; they will call for help but there will be no mercy shown to them.
They will say, "O Malik, would that your Lord put an end to us."
Malik will respond, "Verily you are to stay. Verily We brought to you the truth, but most of you despised the truth" (43:77-78).

O Kumail! I swear to Allah that we are the truth to which Allah refers by saying, "And were the truth to follow their whims, certainly the heavens and the earth and all those that are in them would have been ruined" (23:71). 

O Kumail! After staying in Hell for a long period, the inmates of Hell will call Allah, the owner of the Holy names, and ask, "Is there any hope for us?"
And Allah will reply, "Remain condemned in it, and speak not to Me" (23:108).

O Kumail! Then they will lose hope of ever escaping and their sorrow will increase. At this point they will be sure of their destruction for what they earned with their deeds and they will be tortured. Read More

Virtues of Faatemah Zahra (s.a.) as per the Scholars of Ahle Sunnat

Ibne Maghaazali Shaafe’ee, in his book Manaaqib, pg 399, has documented a tradition from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.): By the Almighty, who made me a Prophet, that you O’ (Faatemah (a.s.)) are the leader of all women in both worlds i.e. in this world, and the hereafter.
Many more traditions of this nature have been mentioned by Sunni scholars like Allamah Shahaabuddin Aalusi in Tafseer al-Maani, book 3, pg 155, Shaafe’ee in Seerah al-Halabi book 2, pg 6, as also by Suyuti, Muqrezi, Mannaawi, Ibn Abil Hadeed Motazali, Ahmed Zaini Vehlaan, Shaafe’ee Mufti Misri.
Allamah Ibne Maghaazali in Manaaqib page 37 states from Nasr b. Ali who relates on the authority of Imam Moosa al-Kaazim (a.s.), and he on the authority of his immaculate forefathers (a.s.), and they on the authority of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.), who quotes from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) who will holding the hands of Hasan (a.s.) and Husain (a.s.) informed:
He, who befriends these two, their father and their mother, will enjoy my stature in Paradise.
Khateeb-e-Baghdaadi had stated that when Nasr b. Ali, stated this tradition, Mutawakkil ordered a punishment of two lashes. When Mutawakkil’s agents were beating him, Jafar b. Abdul Waahid inquired from Mutawakkil why they were beating him as he (Nasr) was a Sunni. Nasr was then let off. (Taarikh-e- Baghdaad, book 13, pg 288)
Highly respected theologian Haafiz Mohib al-Deen al-Tabari, in his book titled Zakhaaer al-Uqba pg 56, has a recorded a tradition wherein the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) addressed Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) (a.s.), greeting him by the title – O Father of two fresh and blossoming Flowers, shortly, both your two pillars will go.
When Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) passed away, Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) said – Of the two pillars, this was one. Shortly thereafter when Hazrat Faatemah (a.s.) passed away, he (a.s.) said this was the second pillar.

Foreign Journalists not Allowed in Qatif


Big protests erupted in Qatif in early 2011, inspired by the Arab Spring uprisings sweeping the region and feelings of solidarity with Shias in neighboring Bahrain. These drew Qatif into a region-wide contest for influence between Shia Muslim Iran and Sunni Arab states such as Saudi Arabia.
Most Saudis adhere to the rigid Wahhabi school of Sunni Islam that deems Shi'ism as heretical, and some members of the majority fear the Qatif Shias' first loyalty is to Iran rather than their own kingdom.
By contrast, the Shias proclaim their loyalty to Riyadh and say they want an end to what they regard as neglect amidst the oil wealth of Saudi Arabia's Eastern Province where they live.
Awamiyah became known across the country as Saudi media reported on what it simply called "rioting" in the village and the surrounding Qatif district.
After several months of relative calm, some residents fear more unrest resulting in a police crackdown. This follows the arrest of 16 Shias accused of spying for Iran and the first hearing in the trial of an Awamiyah cleric who may face execution.
"The government is dealing with this as a security threat, not as a political issue. Shia demands are not big. They are achievable and for not much cost," said Jafar al-Shayeb, a Shia community leader and former elected head of Qatif municipality. Read Full Story
