Islam – The Religion of Depression and Misery

Did you know that the Quran teaches that Allah has deliberately created many human beings and genies for the express purpose of condemning them to hell?

Whomsoever God guides, he is rightly guided; and whom He leads astray — they are the losers. We have created for Gehenna many jinn and men: they have hearts, but understand not with them; they have eyes, but perceive not with them; they have ears, but they hear not with them. They are like cattle; nay, rather they are further astray. Those — they are the heedless. S. 7:178-179 Arberry

Had thy Lord willed, He would have made mankind one nation; but they continue in their differences excepting those on whom thy Lord has mercy. To that end He created them, and perfectly is fulfilled the word of thy Lord: ‘I shall assuredly fill Gehenna with jinn and men all together.’ S. 11:118-119 Arberry

If We had so willed, We could have given every soul its guidance; but now My Word is realized — “Assuredly I shall fill Gehenna with jinn and men all together.” S. 32:13 Arberry

Did you also know that the Islamic faith is perhaps the only religion which promises that every single person must enter into hell, while failing to give the individual believer the absolute assurance that s/he will be taken out from there?

The human being says, “Shall I be brought to life again after I will die?” Does he not remember that We created him when he did not exist? By your Lord, We will bring them back to life with satan and gather them around hell in large groups. Then We will separate from every group those who were strongly rebellious against the Beneficent God. We know best who deserves greater suffering in hell fire. It is the inevitable decree of your Lord that every one of you will be taken to hell. We will save the pious ones from the hell fire and leave the unjust people therein in crowded groups. S. 19:66-72 Muhammad Sarwar
