Hadith Explanation

Sinners Among Believers

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The people of Jahannum will remain there, never dying and never living. But there are people who will enter Jahannum because of their sins, and will be killed therein they turn like coals. Permission will be granted for intercession to be made, and they will be brought out of it in groups and spread over by the side of the rivers of Jannah, and it will be said: ‘O people of Jannah, pour water on them. Then they will grow like seeds in the silt left by a flood.’” [Muslim: Kitaab al-Eemaan]

The value of Tawheed is that it will enable a person to escape from Jahannum. A Muslim may be punished because of their sins but no matter how severe the punishment, at last they will be brought out. They will have burned so much that they will look like coals. But after the Prophet’s (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam’s) intercession for them, they will be brought out of the Fire and scattered on the banks of the rivers of Jannah. The people of Jannah will be asked to pour water on them and they will do so. These people, burnt to coals, will be brought to life again and with the pouring of water will spring into beautiful creatures once more.

This hadith tells us that the sinners among the believers (Muwahhideen) will eventually be brought out from Jahannum and will enter Jannah through intercession. May Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) save us from having to spend even the shortest amount of time in the Fire. Ameen.
