1-    THE UNHAPPY LIVES OF THE INHABITANTS OF HELL IN THIS WORLD

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV  (3 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
The features of paradise and hell are equally revealed in the world. Therefore, people who do not think of the hereafter or Allah’s approval assume all those features of hell. This world turns into a complete hell for them. But if a believer constantly lives with a fear and love of Allah and always reflects on death, then those characteristics of hell are removed from his sight and he sees only the heavenly aspects of the world. His heart and soul literally inhabit paradise and he lives in great comfort. That is why Muslims, believers, have an abundance, plenty and beauty. 

ADNAN OKTAR' LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (28 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
There is a kind of fire in hell, whereby people burn on the inside. We are told there are no flames on the outside, but people will burn internally. People who fall into disbelief in this world, who do not love and fear Allah, live in a state of poor moral, joylessness, unhappily and wary and suspicious of all things, in an unbearably troubled state. This is one way that the fire of hell burns from the inside.

It burns these people internally. The same thing will apply in the hereafter. In hell, too, people will burn on the inside and be terribly troubled and uncomfortable, suffering unbearable pain, although this fire will be internal. There is also an external fire, as you know, normal flames.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CHANNEL 35, (1 February 2009) 

ADNAN OKTAR:
I sometimes chat to young people, boys and girls, and ask them things. I ask them, for instance, whether they have anyone they really trust. “To tell the truth,” they say, “not a single one.” ”I have nobody I trust,” they say. “I have a genuine girlfriend, but I do not trust her at all.” But this is very important. One needs to have friends one can trust as one trusts oneself. Then one can be happy. Otherwise, you spend all your time with people who lie and whom you do not trust. It is like living in a chamber of hell. So we see the faces of people who live in the chamber of hell; they cannot be happy. That is why it is essential to live tightly by the moral values of the Qur’an. It is essential to live with a love and fear of Allah. In that event, true happiness can spread across the world, and people have a real need of that.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON EKIN TV (26 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
...In the hereafter, they say that sorrow and regret have got the better of them. When asked why they have come to hell, why they are in that predicament, they say that sorrow and regret got the better of them.  That is in the human soul, a satanic feature. They constantly look for sorrow, but never for joy and happiness. They seek burdens, fatigue and sorrow. They seek a reason to be sorrowful in everything. But a Muslim must seek goodness, beauty and mercy in all things. And since Muslims look for goodness and beauty in all things, their world becomes a paradise. But since people who do not believe in Allah are always sorrowful and tormented, their world is a hell.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (25 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
For irreligious people, death is the beginning of a disaster. Even before death they burn in this world with the pain of lovelessness and being without passion, of always doubting other people, and with the pain of loneliness, insecurity and selfishness. They are the subjects of many tribulations, though they imagine this to be just part of the normal course of life.


2-    THE SITUATION OF PEOPLE CREATED FOR HELL

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CHANNEL 35 (IZMIR)  (14 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
…Because a huge mass of people are created for hell. We cannot compel someone who is created for hell, and who makes us feel that, to adopt the virtues of paradise. Our Prophet (saas) also tells us that. Almighty Allah says “Perhaps you will destroy yourself with grief because they will not become believers.”. Our Prophet (saas) made enormous efforts for them to find the right way, whereas they had actually come from hell. They want it, they want hell. They want to go where they are going. You can tell a sick person that Allah is testing him and will bestow paradise on him if the results of that test are good, and if the person is a Muslim he will be delighted and rejoice. But these are meaningless words for an unbeliever, someone who denies Allah. But there is nothing surprising in that. There will be many people like that. That is how the world has been created. Things will go on like that until Doomsday. People will be tested.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CHANNEL 35 (IZMIR) (7 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
These are people who have been brought from hell; people who have come from hell. Our Prophet (saas), so nice, lovable and holy, met many such people. He tells them in all sincerity. And Allah says, “Perhaps you will destroy yourself with grief “ Our Prophet (saas) strives with all his might so that they will believe. But they look at him emptily, with uncomprehending eyes. The fact is that they have come from hell and will never believe. That is why Allah warns him. Look, his soul is so fine and full of love he is distraught because they will not believe and will go to hell. And he makes himself very tense. He really upsets himself, to the extent that it will damage his health. Allah tells the Prophet (saas) he will nearly destroy himself. Therefore, such people have been specially created. There is a whole community that has been specially created for hell. That is where they belong and come from. They are already active there. And they have been created in such a way as to understand nothing. ”They have eyes that don’t see”, says Allah. ”They have ears they do not hear with”, He says. ”Such people are like cattle. No, they are even further astray”, in terms of their failing to understand what they are told.  He also says their hearts and eyes are blind. You imagine them to be alive, He says, but they are dead. But people imagine that Muslims do not know this, that they think they live like zombies. But these people are dead, as I have already said. There can be dead people, but people cannot understand. Many people are dead. There are many dead people. Many people are djinn, for example, but people do not know them. Also there is satan. He moves among people. And people cannot know the dead. People talk to the dead, but it is like talking to a brick wall. 

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KON TV (KONYA) (14 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
In verse 81 of Surat at-Tawba, Allah says “Those who were left behind were glad to stay behind the Messenger of Allah. They did not want to strive with their wealth and themselves in the Way of Allah. They said, ‘Do not go out to fight in the heat.’ Say: ‘The Fire of Hell is much hotter, if they only understood’.” In other words, there will be people who say, it’s summer let’s mind our own business, what concern is it of yours to preach the word and spread the religion? But Almighty Allah says “the fire of hell is even hotter. If only they understood”, He says.


3-THE MOMENT OF DEATH AND THE ENTERING TO THE HELL OF THE PEOPLE OF HELL

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CHANNEL 35 (IZMIR) (1 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
People can die both spiritually and physically as they talk. There are some types who engage in immorality and shameful behavior and who imagine that nothing will happen, but Allah immediately seizes them from behind. Izra’il (as) drags them to hell. We continue talking to them, and one imagines they are still alive, though they have in fact been placed in the middle of hell. The Qur’an says there are people who go to hell with no questions asked. They are sent directly to hell. For instance, a man may have died a week ago, and they say the light has gone from his eyes and his speech is impaired and his words are not really conscious. People do not realize that he is dead and has stopped breathing, since a person can die spiritually before his physical death.  

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (25 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
... Everything in disbelief, every stage of it, is terrifying. There is the suffering stage, and the stage of the departure of the soul. There is the stage of the soul’s being carried away. It is beaten and it is dragged off. Then it is humiliated at its destination. They drag it along the ground. They have to crawl, there is no working upright.
For instance, some people’s eyes do not see, and their ears do not hear. They are in a very distressing situation, one in which they should regret what they have done. People imagine they must really regret their actions, but their obstinacy and excess just grow still further in hell.  

Allah says they ”glance around them furtively”. In one verse, He says, they conceal their regret. In other words, they become even more fanatical and contrary. And most do not request a direct blessing from Allah. ‘Tell your Lord,’ he says. They address the keepers and demons of hell in those terms, and they also address believers in paradise in such terms.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON EKIN TV (26 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Allah so adorns the universe that human beings will like it. For example, when we go to the hereafter, Allah could put us into paradise straightaway, as soon as we die. But He does not. He first collects everyone together by the edges of hell, where an excitement arises, one that will please them.  There is a light in front of them. If He so wished, He could illuminate everywhere, and there would be no need for that. There is a light to their right, intended as an adornment, something attractive. He then tells Muslims to move on, that they are going to paradise. And Muslims feel an enormous excitement. They enter paradise chanting the takbir. Meanwhile, the dwellers in hell suffer enormously and are terrified and devastated, and that is a tribulation upon them. And that is the form the tribulation should take. Allah gives the tribulation that form. If He so wished, Allah could put them into a chamber in hell and constantly inflict sufferings upon them if torment were the only aim. But Allah wishes to create an image there, a majesty. Those who see hell are terrified, for example. Allah creates Doomsday for them to see His might. A great terror and amazement result, in terms of His demonstrating His own might. Allah adorns all things. He adorns human beings, giving them muscles, eyes and noses. This is part of that adornment.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON EKIN TV (26 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
When the dwellers in hell arrive there, they say, ‘Yes, we deserve it.’ Even if they do not say it themselves, their tongues and skins, their bodily organs, will say it. 


4- DISPUTATIONS AMONG THE PEOPLE OF HELL

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KRAL KARADENIZ TV (22 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
What the people of hell do from morning to night is fight. They will blame one another for ending up in hell and establish street gangs; on the dark streets of hell. They will constantly beat one another wherever they find them. Everyone will beat everyone else. As you know, there is no death in hell, but there is much suffering. There is much torment. They want to get away from it. But there is no escape, of course. The only occupation of the people of hell is hurting one another.


5- HELL CONSISTS OF VARIOUS LAYERS
 
ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV (12 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
...there are various degrees in hell. Some parts are filthy, dark streets, where there is just fighting, suffering, discomfort and filthy food. But some places are for the hypocrites, where there is intense suffering.


6- THE CUSTODIANS OF HELL

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (25 February 2009)


ADNAN OKTAR: There are special custodians who drag souls to hell. The Qur’an says there are 19 of them. They are beings who will turn a deaf ear even if beseeched. They have been specially created, the demons that drag souls to hell.

REPORTER: Yes.

ADNAN OKTAR:
They are under Allah’s command. They are very strong and powerful and drag people away. They do it by force. Allah has given them a special strength. They are the manifestations of Allah but, and this is very important, although they live in hell they do not feel its discomfort. Hell is like paradise to them. Allah bestows something on them that means they are unaffected by them. Indeed, it has the opposite effect. But hell is torment for the unbeliever. Meaning it is a matter of perception.  

REPORTER: Yes.

ADNAN OKTAR: They are subjugated to Allah as His servants there. They will serve Allah for all eternity as the demons that drag souls down to hell.


7- MATERIALISTS AND DARWINSTS WILL ENCOUNTER THE ENVIRONMENT THEY MAINTAIN EXISTS IN THIS WORLD WHEN THEY GO TO HELL

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (28 January 2009)


ADNAN OKTAR: It will be the exact same environment that Darwinists, materialists and Pharaoh dreamed of.

They speak of the primordial atmosphere, the first state of the earth and the primitive conditions facing human beings. The first human beings, the Stone Age and that kind of thing...

TEMPO TV: Darwinist talk.

ADNAN OKTAR: Yes. How they supposedly attacked one another with axes in their hands. How they spilled blood and lacked the power of speech. They will be at exactly that same primitive level in the hereafter. And they will be covered in hair and beard, just as they described, in a wretched condition, covered in dust and their eyes a dark purple. Most of them will be blind and deaf, with their heads facing backward and their bodies deformed; they will be created to be really horrible to look at. The waters of hell are boiling sulfur. Because according to their accounts, the water emerging from the earth cannot have been fresh water. Since there is magma in the earth, and water, and sulfur and metals, the water must be a filthy, sulfurous kind of thing. Allah will produce sulfurous, boiling waters for those who disputed the fact He created sweet, fresh water, and they will have to drink of it, whether they want to or not. They will drink it because they are thirsty. They will have to meet one another. They talk about the class struggle, how people are in a constant state of conflict and fighting, with the classes warring among themselves, in other words, of an environment of unending conflict.  There is also a conflict between the strong and the weak, they say, as described by Darwin. There will be the same thing in hell. They will constantly form groups there, and fight with one another, and wound and try to kill each other. But there is no death in hell. They will do what need to be done to kill, but the other party will stay alive, rather than dying. Verses describe how under the impact of the flames of hell, people’s skins and faces will peel off. But they will be replaced with new flesh. And the flames of hell will burn that flesh off once more. There is no burning once and then dying, as in this world. The burning there is an endless one. 

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON EKIN TV (19 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Hell is the kind of place that materialists speak of and imagine. It is an exact match for what they say. They claim that the primordial environment they speak of existed from the first creation of the earth. It is a horrible place where magma boils, with hot fire and smoke and where boiling, sulfurous waters bubble. The inhabitants of hell are very ugly. They talk about types that have mutated, and they are just like that. Their head face backward while their arms are in the front. Most of them are blind and deaf and they crawl on the ground, in the same way that human beings used to walk on four legs. This is a very great miracle. Their faces and appearances are very primitive and repulsive, making them utterly terrifying.


8- HUMILIATION IN HELL

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV (19 February  2009)


ADNAN OKTAR: ...there is a terrible humiliation, their honor is terribly shattered. One of the main features of hell is the pay that pride and arrogance in people are crushed. When they lie during questioning, their eyes will speak. When they say they did not see something, their eyes will say that they did. When they deny having said something, their mouths will speak and confirm that they did say it. Therefore, their lives in which they are so humiliated will be very wretched ones. But one of their worst torments will be that they can always see paradise and compare their condition to it. They will see the lives that Muslims lead from afar off. They will be humiliated and suffer much tribulation. They will suffer regret for all eternity.


9- THE CLIMATE OF TORMENT IN HELL

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON EKİN TV (9 March 2009)


ADNAN OKTAR: “Whereas for those who are unbelievers there will be the Fire of Hell. They will not be killed off so that they die” In other words, Allah is saying they cannot die. “its punishment will not be lightened for them.” They are in a constant state of torment. “That is how We repay every thankless man.” “They will scream out, O Lord, let us out, let us do something purer than what we have done.” In other words, they will beg to be sent back to the world. They will ask to be able to exhibit pure behavior. Allah says, “Did We not let you live long enough for anyone who was going to pay heed to pay heed?” In other words, Allah asks whether they had not been given sufficient time.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (13 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR: The deniers are generally black in appearance; their eyes are purple, meaning they have no colored parts and no whites. Allah says they are blind and deaf. Some of their heads face backward, while others’ faces are on the top of their heads. The verse says that their habitat will be one of hot magma, one that will repel them. There will be ugly plants and unpleasant smells.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON VATAN TV (2 April 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
... the unbelievers in hell and everything is divided into negative and positive. All the negatives are in hell; all negative things, darkness, evil, filth and errors are in hell. Whereas all positive things are in paradise.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (25 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR: Hell is a place of the exact opposite, meaning that everything is in a defective, polluted, rotten and disgusting state. In other words, it is just as the materialists describe it all. There is magma, and people are malformed or incompletely formed, with their noses or mouths being displaced, for example. They are dirty, their mouths are dirty, their bodies are dirty. There is no washing in hell, which stinks and is utterly filthy. Vile smells, vile filth, vile words, vile darkness, vile food and a generally vile everything are characteristics of hell.  

ADNAN OKTAR'IS LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV (12 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
But people can speak in hell. Allah says they even conceal their repentance. That means that even in their pain they persist in their immorality.  Allah says their faces and flesh will melt in the flames, that only their skulls will be left, but that He will then restore their flesh, but that they will still live in immorality. Allah has created them like that, and that is how they live. That is their destiny, insha’Allah.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV (29 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Of course, hell is intelligent and under Allah’s command. Everything there, as a whole, is in an active state. It directly attacks disbelief, insha’Allah.


10- THE SPIRITUAL TORMENT IN HELL

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV  (3 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR :
Yes, of course it is a place of longing. They are devoid of all blessings. They have lost all the blessings that Allah bestows. They have lost happiness and joy, and all they have is regret in all its forms. For one thing, they can see the trees of paradise, the inhabitants of paradise. And the heads of the inhabitants of hell face backward, and they are strange-looking entities like those fantastical beings they used to imagine had been subjected to mutation. They see the beauties of the inhabitants of paradise, but they see it all on a small screen. They cannot be there with them, and that means terrible suffering for them. They suffer terrible longing, but they can never leave. They can never leave hell unless Allah so chooses. 

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (4 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR: But unbelievers will be subjected to scourges on all sides. It will begin with death. The way they are dragged off will be full of pain, suffering and distress. The grave will also distress them. The people who die are wretched when they die and wretched when resurrected again, and those around them will give them no ease. The unbelievers will attack one another there. They will claim that one is responsible for another’s being there, and vice versa. There will be constant fighting and outrage there. And they will constantly torment one another. Everything in hell is unpleasant for people. I have previously described how there is fruit in hell, shaped like the head of satan, as it says in the Qur’an. The fruit will look directly at people, stare at them with hatred. These are things intended to distress, alarm and torment people.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV  (24 February 2009)


ADNAN OKTAR: And they will be able to see paradise. On a screen like a television. The inhabitants of paradise and hell will be able to see each other. This will make the inhabitants of paradise happy, because they will be able to compare their states. They will say that Allah could have kept them there, instead. Thanks be to Allah, I have been saved, they will say. And the inhabitants of hell will wish they had not done what they did. They will suffer such intense regret.
Reporter: Regret.

ADNAN OKTAR: But Allah says, They conceal their regret. He says, ”glance around them furtively”. Their pride and obstinacy will persist even there. Their immorality, pride and feelings of superiority even there, are amazing and will persist there, as well. Even though everything is clear. There the boundaries of the mind has been exceeded. and they will still persist in their excess and shamelessness. They will say, tell your Lord... They will not ask Allah to give them a blessing, but rather will say, tell your Lord... They will not contact Allah directly. They will be reluctant to address Him directly. Because of their pride and obstinacy. 


11- THE FOOD AND ANIMALS IN HELL

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV  (3 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Hell is literally like someone having a nightmare. Whatever one sees or touches is terrifying. Even a stone there, for instance, is terrifying and disturbing. Plants there are terrifying. There are plants there with satan’s head. The fruit resembles satan and has eyes and looks at them with hatred and aggression. How can they even reach out to pick it? It smells disgusting and is utterly horrible. Trying to eat anything is another nightmare. They see hatred everywhere, even when they sit down to eat. The places they live upset them. Wherever they go is a complete nightmare for them. The animals there will not resemble animals, but will appear before them as terrifying entities.  


12- BELIEVERS WILL BE EVEN MORE DELIGHTED WHEN THEY LOOK AT HELL FROM PARADISE


ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KANAL 35 (IZMIR) (7 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
...questioning is a kind of celebration for believers. Something delightful. Something in which we see our love and depth in the face of Allah. But questioning for the unbeliever is very terrible. Believers can learn from that. This wisdom is so they can better appreciate the value of paradise and belief. Look, let me underline this. The delight people take from being in paradise will be increased many, many times over when they look at hell. In that respect, hell is a great blessing for believers. In other words, one’s delight in something is enhanced a thousand times by looking at hell. That delight will be reduced if one does not see hell. Believers’ devotion to Allah will be increased many times over when they see the unbeliever being held to account. And their sincere convictions of the values of faith and regarding how they have done the right things and how useful the things they have done are, will be enhanced and strengthened so many times over. Because the boundaries of the mind is not exceeded in the hereafter. Because the unbeliever will still continue to have a unbeliever mindset, because they will find some kind of supposed logic to account for hell, saying it is a hoax perpetrated by capitalists, or an invention, or that they are oppressing people by using equipment and devices to control the electrical system in the brain, or other such irrational and unbelievable explanations. In those terms, believers will continue to believe there. The more they see hell, the more believers will be motivated. They will love paradise even more. Paradise is most delightful. We will enjoy it very much. Insha’Allah you and I will be brothers there.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON MAVI KARADENIZ TV 3 FEBRUARY 2009


ADNAN OKTAR: : The dwellers in paradise will be most delighted of all when they see the inhabitants of hell. It is most important to give thanks. One will compare them with oneself. “Allah forbid, but what if Allah had cast me there and I were there now?” one will say. People will rub the soil of paradise into their hands and faces in gratitude. One will always be able to see hell from paradise. The inhabitants of hell will always be able to see paradise and thus lament, and this is one of the worst torments He inflicts on them. It is one of the most severe torments of hell. Comparison makes a person’s suffering much worse, and also intensifies their pleasure. The comparison is a part of Allah’s ilm al-ladun, that is the knowledge of Divine Providence. Through ilm al-ladun, Allah enables people to be happy and thus enjoy profound pleasure.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (4 March 2009)


ADNAN OKTAR:
Believers are profoundly affected by hell. They will look and give thanks to Allah. Because they will see the empty places in hell. Places that would have been theirs, but that are empty because they are not there. They will see it and be delighted. Allah also creates hell in order for believers to rejoice. Hell is actually a great blessing for paradise, as well. It is a great blessing for the dwellers in paradise that enhances the taste of paradise. And paradise is an anguish that intensifies the suffering of the inhabitants of hell many, many times over. People will love paradise, but paradise will inflict torment on those who inhabit the hell. The more they look, the worse they will suffer and feel longing. The believer, on the other hand, will know the joy and excitement of salvation, insha’Allah.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KAÇKAR TV (12 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR :
.. that is why Allah threatens Muslims with hell, so they will be well behaved and virtuous. In paradise we will understand just how beneficial hell is for us, insha’Allah. Hell is a blessing that increases and encourages love of Allah. It is a blessing for believers, because it will enable them to appreciate the value of paradise. It will allow them to enjoy the delights of paradise very much more. Because they have seen Allah’s justice, their love of Him will grow many times over. That is the greatest impact. The more they see hell on a screen like a television screen, the more their love for the trees, beauties, streets and houses of paradise will grow. Allah says in one verse, “They know no weariness.” This is one of the things that enable them to feel no weariness, their ability to see hell, insha’Allah.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KAÇKAR TV (12 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
They should have trusted in Allah there. But they were weak and have committed an error. We now see how important the existence of hell is. For example, had Almighty Allah inflicted pain on the Prophet Adam (as), if he had known what suffering was and had seen hell while he was in paradise, then perhaps he would not have done what he did. But he came to earth, saw he was wearing nothing and had natural needs, at which he wept. But seeing the nature of what took place he was devastated and learned what suffering was.  For example, when he was in paradise he did not know that fire burns people, that was unknown in paradise. Suffering was unknown in paradise. Nobody knew what suffering or fear was. It was here that he learned what sorrow, fear, tribulation and trouble were. The prophet Adam (as) is now in paradise, though he can see hell and has seen it as suffering. If satan were now to offer to feed him from the tree of eternity, to feed him the fruits of eternity, he would never consider it for a moment, and would never, on the basis of his past experience, repeat the same mistake. This is the wisdom that Almighty Allah refers to; hell is necessary; hell will elevate your love for, trust in and obedience to Allah, and your trust in His word, to the very highest levels and make them very powerful. He says that the more you see of hell the more you will appreciate paradise, and that it is in this that the wisdom of hell consists. Allah has not created hell solely in order to burn and torture people. In reference to hell and other pains, Almighty Allah says in one verse “Why should Allah punish you if you are thankful and believe?” Almighty Allah says he has no wish to torment people. That is not His aim. He says that His aim is people’s peace, comfort, joy and happiness. But hell is needed for that, and fear of Allah. What do they say? Fear him who has no fear of Allah, they say. Of course we will not fear such a person, and that is an entirely different matter. But that is what people say. It means a lack of fear of Allah is dangerous and risky. No harm will come from someone who fears Allah. Such people are rational, far-sighted and full of love, and that is the wisdom of hell. The secret can be rather better understood looked at in terms of ilm al-ladun of Allah. Allah is above all rulers. Allah is infinite mind, and He possesses omniscience in ilm al-ladun of Allah. But someone who knows and understands just a little of the ilm al-ladun of Allah will know what He means in that verse, insha’Allah. 

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KANAL 35 (IZMIR) (14 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
People do not look on hell with love. If they looked at it with a love of Allah, they would also love hell. Hell is actually the source of love. Because it is a threat to the cruel and a great weapon that eliminates immorality. Hell is the true source of happiness. Allah did not show hell to them in the time of the Prophet Adam (as), and you see what happened. You see the affectation and two-facedness of satan, and you know how he deceived the Prophet Adam (as). He also deceived Hawwa, and they behaved in a manner diametrically opposed to Allah’s command. But hell exists at this moment, and it gives people, all Muslims, a great upbringing.


13- WILL PEOPLE BE ABLE TO LEAVE HELL ONCE THEY HAVE ENTERED IT?


ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON EKİN TV (2 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
It is said that Allah will forgive some believers who undergo punishment, but that refers to a very specific community. A very small community. Very few people. It is not something very broad in scope. It is part of Sunni belief. They will be raised to paradise after expiating their sins for a short or specific period of time in hell. But under normal circumstances, nobody will be able to cross the gates of paradise or hell once they have closed.


14- THE HYPOCRITES WILL BE IN THE LOWEST PLACE IN HELL

ADNAN OKTAR’IS LIVE INTERVIEW ON ÇAY TV (25 February 2009)


ADNAN OKTAR:
Will there be ademon at the bottom of the lowest place in hell, or a human being? Could you tell us about this?

ADNAN OKTAR:
There will be hypocrites, but satan will be alongside them all. He will be alongside all the irreligious. For example, the hypocrites will be side by side with satan. The unbeliever will also be side by side with him in every layer of hell, everywhere. 

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON BASKENT TV (24 April 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Hypocrisy in any case comes from hell. It is sent to earth from the lowest pit of hell, where the hypocrites are. And at the same time it goes there from this world. But people fail to comprehend that, as time is relative.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV’ (25 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
The hypocrites will be sent to the lowest layer of hell. The hypocrites from the time of the Prophet Musa, of our Prophet’s (saas) time, and from the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) will all be collected together and sent down to the very lowest layer of hell. This is a very dark place, of course, one of intense suffering, a filthy place, somewhere in which the torment of the stench of fire and magma and pollution are most intense. But the thing that will make them unhappiest of all is comparison. Comparing their environment with paradise. Their suffering will increase the more they look at paradise, insha’Allah. 

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (22 April 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR: Even the ones there will tell him that he’s so despicable. He will know his rank and also that he’s a hypocrite. He will be sure of his contemptibleness and his inferior character and he will burn with its torment.


15- TRUE BELIEVERS WILL SAY “I AM SATISFIED IF ALLAH SENDS ME TO PARADISE OR TO HELL”

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV (29 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
We are happy with everything Allah gives. We are happy with all outcomes. A believer submits to Allah and is content with all things. A believer says he is content whether Allah sends him to paradise or hell. But he says he wishes for paradise. But, Allah forbid, even if the believer goes to hell he will still burn with love of Allah there. But he will not go there. I am saying that to clarify the issue. Nobody who burns with a love of Allah goes to hell. 

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON EKIN TV (2 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR :
Allah’s approval. Just Allah’s approval. If Allah sends me to hell I will still be mad with love there. I love Allah with a passion, and I will love Him with a passion no matter what He does.
