The Description of Paradise and Hell

The description of Paradise and Hell cannot be that short for its essentiality. Both the Paradise and the Hell belong to the realm of the unseen of which the only way to know anything about them has to be based on the accounts given regarding them in the Qur’an and the Sunnah.

In fact, both the Qur’an and the Sunnah have provided a great deal of details about the Paradise and the Hell. To mention all such details will require writing a whole book, which is a lengthy task to do. However, we recommend that the book of Al-Jannah wa al-Nar by sheikh `Umar Sulayman al-Ashqar be read by the Muslims who are interested in this issue. The book is very useful in this regard and will satisfy the need of anyone who reads it insha’ Allah.
