Muslims believe that when a person dies two angels, Nakeer and Munkar will visit him in his grave. They will question him about his faith. If he is a believer his tomb will be widened 70 cubits square (14.17 sq meters) and it will be illumined. Then he will be told to sleep like a bridegroom until the Day of Resurrection, when Allah will raise him up to reward him. If he is found a “hypocrite” (a disbeliever) they will order the tomb to squeeze him until his ribs are crushed.
Note that the actions of the person are not called into account. All that matters is whether he believes in Muhammad or not. That is all Muhammad wanted. He wanted people to believe in him. That was his only goal.
The Quran says that at the Day of Judgment, the Heaven will be split asunder (Q.84:1) and it will heave with (awful) heaving (Q.52:9), the Sun is overthrown (Q.81:1), the Earth is shaken with her (final) earthquake (Q. 99:1), the moon is eclipsed (Q.75:8) and Angel Israfil will sound the trumpet and all living creatures, mankind, angels and jinn then living, will die. Another blast and all will be raised to life. Allah’s throne will appear in the clouds, carried by 8 angels. Believers will receive a book of their deeds in their right hand, and unbelievers in their left hand. The books will be opened and men’s works weighed on scales (mizan). In fear, men will look for someone to plead with Allah. They will go to Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus, but find no help. At last they will turn to Muhammad.
Muslims also believe that there is a bridge across Hell, named Sirat, which is sharper than the edge of sword and thinner than a hair. Faithful Muslims will cross over it in the “twinkling of an eye” and enter Paradise. Other Muslims may fall into Hell, but will later be released. Unbelievers will fall into Hell and remain there forever.”
No one knows the exact time for the Day of Judgment, but it is going to be a Friday 10th of Muharram. At that time Allah will resurrect all the dead. He will collect their dispersed dusts and call them to visit him. People will see Allah as clear as seeing the sun in a not cloudy day. Then he will judge them based on their beliefs. Those who did not associate any other God with Allah, irrespective of what crimes they have committed, will go to Paradise.
There are also verses in the Quran that speak of good deeds.
[Al-Imran 3:30] On the Day when every soul will find itself confronted with all that it hath done of good and all that it hath done of evil (every soul) will long that there might be a mighty space of distance between it and that (evil).
However, evil for Muhammad did not mean what we think of it. By evil he meant disbelief. This is clear from the following verse.
[Ibrahim 14:44] And warn mankind of a day when the doom will come upon them, and those who did wrong will say: Our Lord! Reprieve us for a little while. We will obey Thy call and will follow the messengers. (It will be answered): Did ye not swear before that there would be no end for you?
For Allah nothing is more abhorrent than disbelief and once you believe all your sins will be forgiven, and your place in paradise is guaranteed. In a Hadith noted by Bukhari, the importance of belief over good deeds is emphasized.
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 445:
Narrated Abu Dhar: The Prophet said, “Gabriel said to me, ‘Whoever amongst your followers die without having worshipped others besides Allah, will enter Paradise (or will not enter the (Hell) Fire).” The Prophet was asked. “Even if he has committed illegal sexual intercourse or theft?” He replied, “Even then.”
For disbelievers there is no salvation.
[al-Ma’idah 5:36] As for those who disbelieve, lo! if all that is in the earth were theirs, and as much again therewith, to ransom them from the doom on the Day of Resurrection, it would not be accepted from them. Theirs will be a painful doom.
[al-Kahf 18:106] That is their reward: hell, because they disbelieved, and made a jest of Our revelations and Our messengers.
[Ta Ha 20:100] Whoso turneth away from it, he verily will bear a burden on the Day of Resurrection,
We humans put a lot of emphasis on helping each other and on charitable works. Will those good deeds have any effect? No! Allah does not give a hoot whether you spent your entire life serving other humans and doing good deeds. If you did not believe in Muhammad you will go to hell no matter how much good you have done and if you believed in him all your sins and crimes can be forgiven.
[al-`Ankabut 29:25] The love between you is only in the life of the world. Then on the Day of Resurrection ye will deny each other and curse each other, and your abode will be the Fire, and ye will have no helpers.
“The love between you is only in the life of the world,” says Allah. Methinks these words cannot be from the creator of mankind. They must belong to a man who was unable to love and never experienced it. They describe the mind of a narcissist.
For a narcissist love has a very utilitarian scope. He loves others in the same way that he loves an object, like his car. As long as others satisfy his narcissistic needs, praise him, adulate him, attend to his physical and emotional needs, he loves them. If they fail in that he discards them, with the same emotional detachment that one would discard a broken car not worth fixing. The narcissist loves his spouse, children and friends as long as they provide him with his narcissistic supply and bolster his self image as a successful husband, father, citizen, etc. He loves others as long as they satisfy his needs and he can exploit them. He will discard them when he no longer needs them.
The Quran says the face of those who did not accept Allah will be blackened so they can be easily identified.
[az-Zumar 39:60] And on the Day of Resurrection thou (Muhammad) seest those who lied concerning Allah with their faces blackened. Is not the home of the scorners in hell?
Does that mean that the black people will go to hell mixed up the unbelievers whose faces will turn black?
Now this is quite an insult to blacks, but strangely they are the ones who are flocking to Islam. Little they know that Muhammad was quite scornful of blacks.
This stereotyping is reaffirms in another place.
[Al-Imran 3:106] On the Day when (some) faces will be whitened and (some) faces will be blackened; and as for those whose faces have been blackened, it will be said unto them: Disbelieved ye after your (profession of) belief? Then taste the punishment for that ye disbelieved.
The absurdity of these tales is self-evident. However, Muslims are unable to reason. What is the use of a wide and illumined grave to a deceased? Has anyone seen a widened and illumined grave? Is the grave of Muhammad himself widened?
Islamic Paradise is a physical place. That is why Allah has to collect all the dust of the dead people to punish or reward them. That makes even less sense when we know that we constantly renew the elements that compose our body.
Muhammad had no idea of the spiritual reality of man that is believed to be independent from the material world. Allah’s rewards are whores, wine, honey, gardens, mansions, cloths with golden embroidery and other material objects. If paradise is a spiritual realm what is the use of all these? His punishment is also physical – fire. Heaven, in Islam, is the place where believers will be reclining under the shade of trees, eating and drinking, and screwing the whores.
[Surah 55:54-46]“They will recline on carpets whose inner linings will be of rich brocade: the fruit of the gardens will be near. In them will be (Maidens), Chaste, restraining their glances, whom no man or Jinn before them has touched (virgins).”
Emotionally healthy people cannot be happy when they know their loved ones are suffering. There is something that binds us people together. It is called love. Unless you are a narcissist, you can’t possibly have fun, engage in debauchery and bang whores all day, when you know that your nearest and dearest are suffering. Can anyone possibly enjoy all the goodies of paradise when his loved ones are burning in hell?
Allah and his prophet did not think of that. That is because Allah is the figment of Muhammad’s imagination and Muhammad was a narcissist. Narcissists feel no love for anyone. The prophet assumed everyone is like him – emotionally sterile, bereft of feelings and empathy.
Can anyone enjoy paradise when they know that their loved ones who did not believe are being tortured in hell? Obviously Muslims can. If they are capable of murdering their nearest and dearest when they latter leaves faith, they are capable of rejoicing also if they are tortured in hell. Once a person becomes a Muslim, he becomes possessed by the spirit of Muhammad and loses every trace of humanity.
Good deeds have no merits. Belief in Allah and his messenger is the only requisite to inherit this materialistic paradise.
This place is only for Muslims. One cannot enter the paradise by believing in God. It’s is the belief in Muhammad that will guarantee such passage. In one place we are lead to believe that People of The Book, i.e. Jews and Christians will be saved,
[al-Hajj 22:17] Lo! those who believe (this revelation), and those who are Jews, and the Sabaeans and the Christians and the Magians and the idolaters – Lo! Allah will decide between them on the Day of Resurrection. Lo! Allah is Witness over all things.
Then again, this is contradicted by another verse.
[al-Ma’idah 5:14] And with those who say: “Lo! we are Christians,” We made a covenant, but they forgot a part of that whereof they were admonished. Therefore We have stirred up enmity and hatred among them till the Day of Resurrection, when Allah will inform them of their handiwork.
The same is said of the Jews (Q.10:93). According to Islamic thinking, Mother Theresa will be burning in the Hell while Khomeni and Saddam Hussein will go to heaven because they believed in Allah and his messenger.
