One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakathu.


I really appreciate ur efforts 2 answer all our doubts regarding Islam.I have a question which i have been pondering over for sometime. It is in the Holy Quran that those who worship Gods other than Allah will not enter Jannath. But what does it say about atheists. What does the Holy Quran or the Ahadeeth say about them? Where will they go?


Regards
Your brother in Islam

Answer:

 

What about athiests

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Statement: It is in the Holy Quran that those who worship Gods other than Allah will not enter Jannath.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 72:

Whoever commits ‘shirk’ (invoking anything with Allah), Allah shall forbid for him Paradise,  and Hell shall be his abode.  And for such wrong doers there will be no one to help.

 

Your Question: But what does it say about atheists. What does the Holy Quran or the Ahadeeth say about them? Where will they go?
An ‘athiest’ is described as one who does not believe in the existence of a Supreme and Perfect All-Powerful All-Encompassing Creator; and in reality the concept of ‘atheism’ is but a branch or off-shoot of the spiritual disease of what the Quran calls ‘Kufr’ or disbelief. 

 

An atheist (just like the disbelievers) neither believes in the Lord Creator, nor in the Lord’s appointed Messengers, nor in Lord’s Revealed Books, nor in the Angels, nor in the Decrees of the Lord, nor in the concept of the Last Day….thus the belief and the subsequent penalties and consequences warned to the ‘Kuffars’ or disbelievers in the Glorious Quran fit the so called ‘atheists’ like a glove!  

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 29 Surah Ankabut verse 68:

68      And who does more wrong than he who invents a lie against Allah, or rejects the Truth when it reaches Him? Is there not a home in Hell for those who reject Faith?

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 39 Surah Zumur verse 32:

32      Who then doth more wrong than one who utters a lie concerning Allah and rejects the Truth when it comes to him? Is there not in Hell an abode for blasphemers?

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 21 Anbiyaa verses 39-40:

39      If only the disbelievers knew (the time) when they will not be able to ward off the Fire from their faces, nor yet from their backs, and (when) no help can reach them!

40      Nay it may come to them all of a sudden and confound them: no power will they have then to avert it nor will they (then) get respite!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 64 Surah Taghabun verses 7-10:

7        The disbelievers think that they will not be raised up (for Judgment). Say: "Yea! By my Lord, ye shall surely be raised up: then shall ye be told (the Truth) of all that ye did.  And that is easy for Allah."

8        Believe therefore in Allah and His Messenger, and in the Light which We have sent down.  And Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.

9        The Day that He assembles you (all) for a Day of Assembly, that will be a Day of mutual loss and gain (among you).  And those who believe in Allah and work righteousness He will remove from them their ills and He will admit them to Gardens beneath which rivers flow to dwell therein forever: that will be the Supreme Achievement.

10      But those who reject Faith and treat Our Signs as falsehoods, they will be companions of the Fire to dwell therein for aye: and evil is that goal.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws),   one can be assured of never ever being misled;   but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.  

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
