The Fire will sear their faces, making them grimace horribly in it, their lips drawn back from their teeth. Were My Signs not recited to you and did you not deny them?’ They will say, ‘Our Lord, our miserable destiny overpowered us. We were misguided people. Our Lord, remove us from it! Then if we revert again, we will definitely be wrongdoers.’ He will say, ‘Slink away into it and do not speak to Me.’ (23:102-108)

The Day they are shoved roughly into the Fire of Hell: (deniers will be told,) ‘This is the Fire which you denied! So is this magic? Or is it that you do not see? Roast in it! And bear it patiently or do not bear it patiently. It makes no difference either way. You are simply being repaid for what you did.’ (52:13-16)

They will go back and forth between fire and scalding water. (55:44)

(Say:) ‘This will be their hospitality on the Day of Judgment!’ (56:56)

That Day the men and women of the hypocrites will say to those who believe, ‘Wait for us so that we can borrow some of your light.’ They will be told, ‘Go back and look for light!’ And a wall will be erected between them with a gate in it, on the inside of which there will be mercy but before whose exterior lies the punishment.

Each time a group is flung into it its custodians will question them: ‘Did no warner come to you?’ They will say, ‘Yes indeed, a warner did come to us but we denied him and said, “Allah has sent nothing down. You are just greatly misguided.”’ They will say, ‘If only we had really listened and used our intellect, we would not have been Companions of the Blaze.’ Then they will acknowledge their wrong actions. Away with the Companions of the Blaze! (67:8-11)

(Say: ‘It has been revealed to me that a band of the jinn listened and said,) “Some of us are Muslims and some are deviators. Those who have become Muslim are those who sought right guidance; the deviators will be firewood for Hellfire.”’ (72:14-15)

Say: ‘No one can protect me from Allah and I will never find any refuge apart from Him–only in transmitting from Allah and His Messages. As for him who disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he will have the Fire of Hell, remaining in it timelessly, for ever and ever.’ (72:22-23)

Some faces on that Day will be downcast, labouring, toiling endlessly, roasting in a red-hot Fire, drinking from a boiling spring. They have no food but a bitter thorny bus which neither nourishes nor satisfies. (88:2-7)

Ruin to the hands of Abu Lahab and ruin to him! His wealth has not helped him nor anything he has earned. He will burn in a Flaming Fire. And so will his wife, the firewood-carrier, with a rope of twisted fibre round her neck. (111:1-5)
