The concept of forever burning in hell for limited sins, here is how I think about it.
the burning in hell forever is balanced by Allah by giving us Jannah which is bliss forever. Why don’t people have a problem with getting unlimited fun in Jannah for even more limited good deeds? Both balances each other. Also, the concept of reward and punishment is for a human being to motivate us to act. So imagine if the most punishment in hell is limited, people will never be fearful of it as much as they are of forever burning and we can see this idea working by seeing how troublesome this burning forever idea is. If this is really that bad then why not act good and save ourselves from it. Also, this tells us that, why is this such a huge punishment, surely it must be of the most important as to make us think act so we save ourselves from it. the bigger the phenomenon is the bigger the motivator is.

Someone mentioned Faisal Malik. I know him! I did not like him, nor that book….not good, and some of it does not represent the Islam I grew up with for the most part. Looks like I’m not the only one

Salam Alaikum Guys,

This podcast was very disturbing to listen to as a practicing Muslim and a student of Islamic theology. I was paying attention until it got to the part where you all started becoming very antagonistic towards people ( including Nabil Qureshi, who I personally did not know until now.) Not sure what gives you the authority to pass judgment and laugh over someone’s presumed kurf after knowing the fact that he recently passed away ? This is basic human decency as a Muslim ( if I may use your language) . And no I am not offended because I am Qadiani or Ahmadi or any other minority sect that is not in line with your understanding of the ” correct path”, neither am I a humanist. This podcast was recommended by a friend and I feel really sad after listening to this as a young muslim in academia. Some of the ” facts” that you discussed are actually not grounded in history or text. This is actually one of the reasons Muslims end up leaving Islam and fall into agnosticism and atheism. As a community we are not supportive of each other’s spiritual struggles. We sit on our round circles, or create a podcast in this case, and discuss our self righteousness and superiority of intellectual arguments. The sheer arrogance in that attitude is anything but Islamic.
