24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

Everyone will be brought to Hell, then the Righteous will be saved

Ibn Jarir reported from Abdullah that he said concerning Allah's statement,

وَإِن مِّنكُمْ إِلاَّ وَارِدُهَا

There is not one of you but will pass over it.

"The bridge over Hell is like the sharp edge of a sword. The first group to cross it will pass like a flash of lightning. The second group will pass like the wind. The third group will pass like the fastest horse. The fourth group will pass like the fastest cow. Then, the rest will pass while the angels will be saying, `O Allah save them, save them."'

This narration has supporting narrations similar to it from the Prophet in the Two Sahihs and other collections as well. These narrations have been related by Anas, Abu Sa`id, Abu Hurayrah, Jabir and other Companions, may Allah be pleased with them all.

Ahmad also recorded that Umm Mubashshar, the wife of Zayd bin Harithah, said,

"The Messenger of Allah was in the house of Hafsah when he said,

لَاا يَدْخُلُ النَّارَ أَحَدٌ شَهِدَ بَدْرًا وَالْحُدَيْبِيَّة

No one who was present at the battles of Badr and Hudaybiyyah (of the Muslims) will enter into the Hellfire.

Then, Hafsah said, "Doesn't Allah say,
وَإِن مِّنكُمْ إِلاَّ وَارِدُهَا
(There is not one of you but will pass over it (Hell);),

The Messenger of Allah replied by reciting,
ثُمَّ نُنَجِّي الَّذِينَ اتَّقَوا
(Then We shall save those who had Taqwa).

In the Two Sahihs there is a Hadith reported from Az-Zuhri, from Sa`id from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allah said,

لَاا يَمُوتُ لاِاَحَدٍ مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ ثَلَاثَةٌ مِنَ الْوَلَدِ تَمَسُّهُ النَّارُ إِلاَّ تَحِلَّةَ الْقَسَم

No one of the Muslims who has had three children, who all died, will be touched by the Hellfire, except for an oath that must be fulfilled.

Abdur-Rahman bin Zayd bin Aslam commented on Allah's statement,
وَإِن مِّنكُمْ إِلاَّ وَارِدُهَا
(There is not one of you but will pass over it (Hell);),

"The passing of the Muslims (over the Hellfire) means their passing over a bridge that is over it. But the passing of the idolators over the Hellfire refers to their admission to the Fire."

As-Suddi reported from Murrah, from Ibn Mas`ud, that he said concerning Allah's statement,

كَانَ عَلَى رَبِّكَ حَتْمًا مَّقْضِيًّا




this is with your Lord; a Hatman decree.

"An oath that must be fulfilled."

Mujahid said,

"Hatman means preordainment."

Ibn Jurayj said the same.
