Humanity Created For Paradise?

Rate this question

Question

(bismillah)

(salam)

-I recently viewed Hassanain Rajabali's lecture regarding the "Justice of Allah"

3 questions:

-Is there any earlier discussion regarding this topic?

-Are there any ahadith's supporting this perspective or is it solely grounded upon the Qur'an?

-If we will all ultimately attain paradise, including unbelievers, why is hell considered as eternal after all?

If so please also explain this verse;

ÎóÇáöÏöíäó ÝöíåóÇ áóÇ íõÎóÝóøÝõ Úóäúåõãõ ÇáúÚóÐóÇÈõ æóáóÇ åõãú íõäÙóÑõæäó162-2

If the approach to Allah's mercy is as such, many paradoxical questions will be answer without great difficulty.

For those of you who have not seen the lecture;

Salam,

I also heard stories saying that all mankind will eventualy enter Paradise, shall it be after many many years of burning in hell they will all be forgiven at one point and enter paradise..

As the story sounded very sweet and represented Allah's SWT mercy on his creations, I doubt that it is true.

Just wanted to say that I also heard about that :)

Question: Are the people of Hell going to stay there forever?

Answer: "They will dwell in there for all the time that the heavens and the earth endure, except as thy Lord wills; for thy Lord is the Doer of what He wills."

(11:107) - Holy Qur'an

    • Just because they both have a noha called Badshah Hussain, the nohas are not similar to each other and the reciters cannot be compared. Both have their own style and people like them. 
    • Feel kindness toward your neighbors and friends, and make dua for them. When you see them, smile and be friendly. InShaAllah they will change their attitude toward you. 4th Imam AS - Supplication for his Neighbours and Friends (Supplication - 26) http://www.duas.org/sajjadiya/s26.htm
    • I don't disagree with anything you're saying, i'm just saying every place has its good and bad, and people often refer to the west as evil all the time, it is not in many ways, like the ways I pointed out. Things like socialist policies in education, health and social security/pensions are very islamic principles. A lot of the West's policies come from judeo-christian values, which aren't very different from Islam. Yes, it is true they have dropped a lot of religious laws now, like allowing abortions and lgbt marriages, but some laws have still stuck around that have roots in abrahamic tradition. No society can claim to be perfect. Iran is an islamic country, but I'm sure a lot of stuff happens underground too, and I'm sure there is still corruption within the government. Ultimately, bro, there is no perfect society, what's important is that you can practice islam freely and to the best of your ability and I think it is possible in many of the western countries, not possible in many of the sunni majority nations. 
    • well, for me personally right now...  I don't know how to prove hadith.  I sincerely honestly dont. Just because a hadith doesn't contradict the Quran doesnt mean its not fabricated.  People intending to twist and corrupt need merit or truths to spin a lie.  One can use something true in the quran like say Umar,   who says I believe in this verse " [verse]" and a good follower of it, but you don't know if he did, for example. It's difficult, and dang near impossible to "follow" and prove those hadiths are true (well, really impossible). I'm just thinking here and presenting my ideas. I would think A hadith that doesn't comtradict the Quran is off to a good start in terms of authenticity.  Reading hadith to understand historical context even if its not authentic actually may be beneficial.  It may explain and connect dots, for understanding why things happened the way they did. Though I've proven (in my personal perspective my long essay of a post) that Muhammad SAW did not err in delivering the message, but may have very well have subjectively  "err'd" in other matters (like when Allah indicates directly that the prophet may be disobeyed by women if they determine his command was not good) (60:12) And then you have 9:50 above, do you think its a good idea to follow any hadiths?  Maybe read them to gain historical understanding but follow them? Eh, its up to you or anyone to make that determination for themselves. I can't judge.   
    • A westernized version of islam? What does that actually mean?  The only interpretation/things I can think of are negative.  Does it mean a version of islam where western culture and values are integrated into it? I do not see the need for that. In the middle east, where you see muslims lacking in any area it is not because they do not apply "good" western values, its because they are applying the bad things of their own culture, meanwhile not caring about what Islam says. Dishonesty, cheating, poor work morale, back talking, not caring for the poor, being unfair, corruption in politics, these are things you might find in the middle east, but they are not because islam is lacking anything, it is because people are not adhering to it, why? Because that would take effort and sincerity. I do not think islam per say is lacking anything and that it needs to change a single inch in any direction. Times change, that is true, but humans does not.
