Salaam everyone, I dont kno what has been going on with me lately.
Let me start.

I was born a Muslim and raised as a Muslim. My father is a great Muslims mash'Allah and goes to the masjid everyday. Alhamdulillah ii was raised in a religious household (although sometimes culture comes into place). I have always been raised to believe that Islam is the right religion and whatnot.

However, ive been thinking lately.. if Islam is the right religion, where do all the good non-Muslims go? Are they gonna go to hell? All those good people?
If there was a good Christian and a bad Muslim, who goes to hell?
No one has been able to answer that question. No one can.

If the bad Muslim (eventually) goes to heaven and the good Christian goes to hell, how is that fair? Its not!

I'm not saying Islam is wrong, but do you have to be Muslim to go to heaven?
Do actions not count?

No one can answer those questions,,, no1.
If ii go to another religion and my questions are answered, my family and the Muslims would get mad at me for finding something that im comfortable with. And ii would never be able to explain to my parents. This is where ii come to think that ii am only following mindlessly.

I dont know if religion would answer my questions.

What am ii supposed to do? Continue searching religions until I find one that disappoint my parents? I feel that ii dont need a religion. I know there is a God and im grateful to be living here on earth. Do ii have to find a religion and follow everything it says?

I'm just ultimately confused!

Wa alaykum salam,
However, ive been thinking lately.. if Islam is the right religion, where do all the good non-Muslims go? Are they gonna go to hell? All those good people?

If there was a good Christian and a bad Muslim, who goes to hell?
If a non muslim hasn't come across Islam, it is said that he will either not be held to account or possibly tested in some other way on the doj.

Secondly, it is not up to us to define what constitutes 'good' and what constitutes 'bad'. If we believe in Islam, then our concept of good and bad ought to equal what Allah tells us. If Allah says not believing in him/going against his commands is bad then that's all there is to it.

Thirdly, all concept of good and bad behaviour is relative in the absence of laws dictated from Allah. What I mean is, some people will have one idea of what is good while another group of people will have a totally opposite idea of what is to be considered good.

For example, the nazis may have thought they were acting 'good'. Obviously they were not but they thought they were. There is always likely to be some level of confusion when it comes to man made ideas of good/bad. These ideas change from time to time and place to place. Whereas good and bad is set in concrete when it comes to laws from Allah.

No one has been able to answer that question. No one can.
Nonsense. Please don't be so airy fairy. This question can and is answered. Do some research before dismissing something based on your uninformed whim. You (obviously and unfortunately) have little knowledge of Islam so are in no position to make proclamations like that. It would help you in the long run if you dropped this arrogance, thinking that you know it all.

Keep in mind also that it takes a sincere heart to see and accept the writing on the wall.

If ii go to another religion and my questions are answered, my family and the Muslims would get mad at me for finding something that im comfortable with. And ii would never be able to explain to my parents. This is where ii come to think that ii am only following mindlessly.

I dont know if religion would answer my questions.
Seek Allah with a true heart. Make dua (ask Allah) for guidance. Humble yourself and sincerely ask with conviction that you be guided. Believe that you will be answered.

At the same time, seek knowledge on Islam. Don't just dismiss it based on your current half baked understanding. It's obvious you know very little. So do yourself a favour if you are sincere and learn Islam first and foremost.

:sl:
how is it fair that a Muslim works their a$$ off in this life in hope of a better aakhira only for someone else to come along and get the same reward despite them not earning it and/or meeting the criterion for it? have you ever heard someone getting a pay rise without working for it! allah hasn't been unfair to us and has directed us and informed us towards whats good and bad. after that it is up to us to reject or accept...allah is the ones who defines things, not us.

truth of the matter is, allah knows and we don't. how do you know they are good people? how do you know they dont do their deeds to show off (even some so called relgios people -non Muslim- sometimes give in charity to get a good word by the people)? who do you know that they dont really harbor hate for allah in their hearts?

what is your definition of good? how can you possibly judge people according to your own definitions and yet go around and claim that it is unfair when you haven't bothered looking into the definitions that are meant to be taken into consideration? wouldnt it be a better means to approach this situation with a "since im confused about certain things Allah Himself has said, then perhaps it would be better to try to understand this from His perspective and in the manner He has explained himself?" type of thinking.

wouldn't that be a better means of trying to comprehend such issues this without using preformed, polluted opinions (it seems that are certain things influencing you to think like this). this is confusing to you because you are judging people using your own methodology. change your mindset, and your outlook just may be very different. similarly, you cant understand concepts of biology using concepts of psychology. can you really blame someone for lacking in understanding of either field subject when they arent even applying the correct methods in trying to reach an understanding.

if you want to understand allah, you have to understand allah how He has made it known. there cannot be any preformed opinions. it is impossible and useless for these issues to be resolved using our own methodology and perspectives...if it isn't what Allah has intended, then what do you think the results are going to yield?

allah truly knows whats in the hearts -and only He knows despite what outer appearances may tell us. that is for allah to decide and if allah has decided that the rejection of tawheed=a bad person, then one who rejects tawheed is a bad person.

secondly, those non-Muslims who do good in this dunya, will be rewarded for it. please check this out.

all the best :]

Aslaamu Alaaykum brother
I understand your Q and i will try to answer it.

Well i dont think your aware, but Other religions also have this belief, there are Believers and Non-Believers in all religion, like in Christianity they believe that all Muslims will go to hell, you can ask them the same Q.

Anyways, In Islaam there are Believers and Non-Believers also. And believe me there is an answer for everything in Islaam, i dont think you are aware of that!
Allaah is the Creator, and in the Quraan he tells us he created man and Jinn but to worship him! :
"We did not create the jinn and men except to worship us" [Sûrah adh-Dhariyyat, verse 56)

This was the same Teaching of Jesus (as), i dont know where in the bible today it was mentioned, but surely it was mentioned in the original book.

In Islaam all sins are forgiven except Shirk( Associating partners with Allaah ), now when we look at the other religions, e.g. Christianity They associate partners with Allaah, i.e.they give god a son Na adhubillah(God forbid), In Hinduism they worship creation and man,e.g.statues etc. thats also wrong, Jews they believe in Allaah but hate the prophets of Allaah, they killed many according to the Quraan. So who ever is the enemy of the messenger of Allaah is an enemy of Allaah.

All the Prophets worshipped One God, e.g. From Adam (as) all the way to Muhammad Sallahu alaayhi wa salam the final messeneger!
Now many religions believe in some of these prophets but they deny the original teachings or have been led astray by the shaytaan (Misguided), like the Jews and Christians etc.
So therefore Islaam is the truth, as the Quraan confirms each Prophet was Muslim (Submitted to the will of their Creator), who else would confirm, would not the Lord who knows everything and sees everything and the truth not confirm what is the truth? He made it clear in the Quraan as Islaam is the final religion and that you die, and you die as a Muslim (A believer in his Book, his messengers, he is the ONE, his angels, the day of Resurrection(Qiyamah).
So therefore, Allaah guides who seeks the truth andguides who he wills. The Non-Believer has disbelieved in Allaah since theres is millions of proof in this Dunya of his existence he still denied there was a creator these people are normally classed as Athiests who deny the existence of their Lord, The other people are who associated Partners , who worshipped his creation rather than the Creator are known as Pagans, I.e.Christians, Hindus, Budhists.

I hope i made some of it Clear InshaAllaah and theres loads more i can say regarding this topic!

Wa`Alaaaykum Salaam. . .

I really do not see this as being of any concern. We do know that Allaah(swt) is all merciful and just. We do know he will not punish anyone for that they are not guilty of. How, he handles non-Believers should be of no concern. Our concern is how we ourselves act and accept responsibility. We do not know who will and who will not enter Jannah, but we can control ourselves and seek to follow the path that will bring us to Jannah. For all I know some of the most notorious non-believers in history may have found favor with Allaah(swt) one second before they died and will receive great rewards. That need not concern me. We have been given the path to Jannah, we have no excuse for straying from that path. We can not claim we did not know the commands of Allaah(swt). All we need know is that since we have the knowledge of the right path, we ourselves had best stay on it.

So you believe in God, but you're not sure if Islam is the right one?

Ok let's see the other alternative religions out there:

1. christianity ----> If you like the idea of worshipping three Gods in one, then this religion might be right for you. Remember, for the followers of this religion, anyone who does not accept Jesus as (a man born 2,000 years ago) as their saviour will be sent to hell forever. There are many variants in this religions such as catholicism where your sins are totally forgiven in one go if you confess to one of their priests (but I don't advise this if you are under age). The verses in their scriptures often contradicting each other and there are countless pornographic materials in them. etc..etc...

2. Hinduism ----> fine if you believe in millions gods goddesses.

3. Buddhism ----> might be for you if you don't believe in god, but since you believe...oh well...

4. fill in the next ones......

the choice is yours.
Use your mind, and sincerely ask guidance from God that you so believe in.

:sl: ukhti,

It's not for us to question Allah's wisdom. Nor should matters that don't concern us directly cause us to be neglectful in what Allah has commanded for us. On the Day of Reckoning, even our fathers, mothers, brothers sisters, son, daughters and friends won't help us, let alone those you are doubting Islam on. Allah is Fair and Just and Merciful and Kind. He will never do injustice to any soul, whatever the faith.

Allah has said in the following verse that some non muslims will have no fear on the Day of Judgment - meaning they won't go to Hell, and we have no reason whatsoever to doubt His wisdom.


Those who believe (in the Qur'an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians and the Christians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness,- on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. Quran - 5:69 al-Ma'idah

Different Translations:

Pickthal - Lo! those who believe, and those who are Jews, and Sabaeans, and Christians - Whosoever believeth in Allah and the Last Day and doeth right - there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve.


Arberry - Surely they that believe, and those of Jewry, and the Sabaeans, and those Christians, whosoever believes in God and the Last Day, and works righteousness -- no fear shall be on them, neither shall they sorrow.


Shaki - Surely those who believe and those who are Jews and the Sabians and the Christians whoever believes in Allah and the last day and does good-- they shall have no fear nor shall they grieve.


Sarwar - The believers, Jews, Sabaeans, and the Christians who believe in God and the Day of Judgment and who do what is right will have nothing to fear nor will they be grieved.


Khalif - Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the converts, and the Christians; any of them who (1) believe in GOD and (2) believe in the Last Day, and (3) lead a righteous life, have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.


Hilali/Khan Surely, those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah, in His Messenger Muhammad SAW and all that was revealed to him from Allah), those who are the Jews and the Sabians and the Christians, - whosoever believed in Allah and the Last Day, and worked righteousness, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.


H/K/Sahee - Indeed, those who have believed [in Prophet Muúammad] and those [before Him] who were Jews or Sabeans or Christians those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.


Malik - Rest assured that the believers (Muslims), the Jews, the Sabians and the Christians - whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day and does righteous deeds - will have nothing to fear or to regret.[69



Hence we have every right to believe that not all non muslims will go to Hell. Allah is more merciful to His creation than you or me or anyone else. He is more concerned about saving mankind from Hell than our own mother is about saving us. Ukhti please don't doubt Allah's wisdom. Read al Quran with the /translations and learn the meanings of the translation. Acquire knowledge of the sunnah and pray to Allah to increase you in knowledge and understanding of the deen. Ameen.


Finally, I'll leave you with a scholars reply on the matter..

The Fate of Non-Muslims in the Afterlife

The reason that contemporary writers affected by the writings of Gunon and Schuon, such as Chittick and Gai Eaton (or such as Martin Lings, Titus Burckhardt etc.), seem to want the universal validity of all religions at any price, even to the extent of attributing it to masters like Muhyiddin ibn al-`Arabi ("in principle") or Emir `Abd al-Qadir ("he protected the Christians against massacre by taking them into his own home because he understood" [as if other scholars considered massacring them halal]) would seem to be the emotive impalatability of followers of other religions going to hell. Where is the mercy? Would Allah put someone in the hellfire merely for worshipping in another religion besides Islam? This question is answered by traditional Islam according to two possibilities:

(1) There are some peoples who have not been reached by the message of the Prophet of Islam (Allah bless him and give him peace) that we must worship the One God alone, associating nothing else with Him. Such people are innocent, and will not be punished no matter what they do. Allah says in surat al-Isra',

"We do not punish until We send a Messenger" (Koran 17:15).

These include, for example, Christians and others who lived in the period after the spread of the myth of Jesus godhood, until the time of the prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace), who renewed the call to pure monotheism.

The great Muslim scholar, Imam Ghazali, includes in this category those who have only been reached with a distorted picture of the Messenger of Islam (Allah bless him and give him peace), presumably including many people in the West today who know nothing about Allah's religion but newspaper stories about Ayatollahs and mad Muslim bombers. Is it within such people's capacity to believe? In Ghazali's view, such people are excused until after they have had an opportunity to learn the undistorted truth about Islam (Ghazali: "Faysal al - tafriqa," Majmu'a rasa'il al-Imam al-Ghazali, 3.96). This of course does not alter our own obligation as Muslims to reach them with the da'wa.

(2) A second group of people consists of those who turn away from God's divine message of Islam, rejecting the command to make their worship God's alone; whether because of blindly imitating the religion of their ancestors, or for some other reason. These are people to whom God has sent a prophetic messenger and reached with His message, and to whom He has given hearing and an intellect with which to grasp it but after all this, persist in associating others with Allah, either by actually worshipping another, or by rejecting the laws brought by His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace), which associates their own customs with His prerogative to be worshipped as He directs. Such people have violated God's rights, and have accepted to go to hell, which is precisely what His messengers have warned them of, so they have no excuse:

"Truly, Allah does not forgive that any be associated with Him; but He forgives what is less than that to whomever He wills" (Koran 4:48).

In either case, Allah's mercy exists, though for non-Muslims unreached by the message, it is a question of divine amnesty for their ignorance, not a confirmation of their religions validity. It is worth knowing the difference between these two things, for one's eternal fate depends on it.
(end)

You are very confused indeed.

In your intro thread, you said,

Is the best way for you to demonstrate your love for Allah by doubting Allah's words and wisdom , leaving His rules and laws and turning away from the way of life He prescribed through Rasoolullah :saws:? If you claimed to love your mother but didn't do what she asked you, what kind of love would that be?

Look what Allah told Rasoolullah :saws: to say " ..If you love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

and

" Say: "Obey Allah and the Messenger". But if they turn away, Allah loves not the disbelievers (in His guidance)."

Surah Aal Imraan (3:31-32)

and

"And whoever seeks religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers" (3:85).

So your creator whom you love is telling you exactly which path you need to follow and what you need to do to attain success... Islam as your religion, and obey Allah and obey the messenger :saws:.

Hence we have every right to believe that not all non muslims will go to Hell. Allah is more merciful to His creation than you or me or anyone else.

Read al Quran with the /translations and learn the meanings of the translation. Acquire knowledge of the sunnah and pray to Allah to increase you in knowledge and understanding of the deen. Ameen.
I must clarify here in case there is any confusion, that these ayaat don't mean that you can become from a Muslim into a Jew or Christian and still expect to go to heaven.

*"Ali bin Abi Talhah narrated from Ibn `Abbas, about:

(Verily, those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day) that Allah revealed the following Ayah afterwards,

﴿وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الإِسْلَـمِ دِينًا فَلَن يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِى الاٌّخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَـسِرِينَ ﴾

(And whoever seeks religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers) (3:85).

This statement by Ibn `Abbas indicates that Allah does not accept any deed or work from anyone, unless it conforms to the Law of Muhammad :saws:that is, after Allah sent Muhammad:saws: . Before that, every person who followed the guidance of his own Prophet was on the correct path, following the correct guidance and was saved.

When Allah sent Muhammad :saws: as the Last and Final Prophet and Messenger to all of the Children of Adam, mankind was required to believe in him, obey him and refrain from what he prohibited them; those who do this are true believers. The Ummah of Muhammad :saws: was called `Mu'minin' (believers), because of the depth of their faith and certainty, and because they believe in all of the previous Prophets and matters of the Unseen."*

Area between the two asterisks from Tafseer ibn Katheer.

i.e those ayaat refer to the righteous folk of old, those that followed the teachings of Musa alayhissalaam in his time and those that followed the teachings of Isa alayhissalam in his time. Those will go to heaven. After the advent of Prophet Muhammad :saws:, who was sent as the Messenger to the whole of mankind, He is the Prophet to be followed by everyone. There is no other correct way.

Other faiths out there will promise you that someone died for your sins, and peace, love and joy etc, but have you seen what Allah says about the monstrous lie of the trinity? Stay on the straight path. Do not let shaytaan tempt you to deviate off it. Do not give in to him. It is his desire to get you off the straight path, anyhow, any time.

Sister, please read more on Islam. Allah is not wrong and Islam is not at fault. It seems perhaps you need to develop a deeper understanding of the faith.

Worry about yourself first, get yourself on the right path first. once you've done that, then you can demonstrate your concern for Christians and put it into practice by inviting them to Islam and telling them about it.

Please ask further questions, but in your questions ask what you'd like to know and don't taint Islam with, "xyz is unfair in Islam, why is this?", when it's not Islam that's at fault, but your limited understanding. It may be the case that you "inherited" Islam from your parents without having a proper understanding. That being the case, now is the time to start learning. Don't turn away from Allah just because you don't understand something. We humans are not meant to know the wisdom behind everything. If we did there would be no test and no point to life on this earth. Everything would be meaningless.

Start afresh, make a new connection with Allah, ask Him for guidance, start reading the Qur'an (which is Allah's word to you and all mankind), and Islamic books, and ask questions here. We don't know the answers to everything and are happy to accept that some things Allah in His Divine Wisdom knows best, but we are all here for you in your quest for guidance, if you truly and sincerely have a desire for that.

I'm just ultimately confused!
Asalaamu Alaikum Wr Wb, it is knowledge that will rid you of confusion for without knowledge you will remain confused. Firstly you should realise that Islam answers questions that no other religion or faith on the face of this earth is able to answer but again you have to have knowledge to know this. There is no question which Islam is not able to answer. That is only your perception from your lack of knowledge and understanding of Islam.

What you have to realise is that we are just humans and we as humans cannot possibly say who will and who will not go to heaven or hell. That is totally upto the judge of all judges Almighty Allah. What we can say is that those who rejected Allah after Allah gave them clear signs then those disbelievers will go to hell after clearly rejecting Allah. Actions of a person do not matter if they have not accepted or acknowledged their lord. Non Muslims who do good will be rewarded for it in this world. But those non Muslims who were not given any signs or clear picture of Islam then they may have tests after death for which Allah knows best.

We must not get ourselves involved in trivial matters like this because it is not our concern and we have no say in such matters just like we have no say in a court of law where a person is being convicted for a crime. That is a concern for the judge and sameway the fate of non Muslims is in the hands of Allah who is the best of all judges and can judge a persons life properly. We cannot use emotional fallacy to say who is and who is not worthy of hell. We must also realise that not all Muslims die as Muslims. That is why we must make effort on ourselves and our imaan (faith) otherwise we will also die without imaan.

We must make the best use of every second of our own lives and be the best examples for non Muslims so that they see the true beauty of Islam as well as giving dawah to them in the most beautiful of manners using wisdom and tact. I urge you to involve yourself in learning about Islam properly otherwise you will remain confused and this confusiuon will take you out of the fold of Islam.

If only you knew the true beauty of Islam then you would have no doubt that it is the truth but your lack of knowledge is causing you to drift from Islam and you must act upon this before it is too late. If you have any questions at all then please do not hesitate to ask us.

:sl:

'bad muslims' who never fulfilled Allahs rights or Rasulullahs [salAllahu alaihi wasallam] or creations rights, yet do believer in the oneness of Allah and believe that Rasulullah [salAllahu alaihi wasallam]is the last and final messenger, these people will be punished for the bed deeds and eventually will be taken out of the hell fire to enter paradise as they will now be in a pure state, anything impure cannot enter Jannah as Jannah is a pure place. Its good to ask questions to clarify any doubts, we all get confused at times whether its a question regarding Islam or for example Maths, but to have doubt it must be lit out before it ignites into a flame of rebellious nous, Allah granted us free will before we set foot on this Earth we took it and now its up to us on how we utilize it...
