Some people think that nothing will happen when they don’t believe
God says in Surat al-Furqan: “When they are flung into a narrow place in it, shackled together in chains” (Al-Furkan, 13) it is about hell “they will cry out there for destruction”. He says “destroy me” to God “my life should not last like this in hell” he says “let me cease to exist”. God says “‘Do not cry out today for just one destruction, cry out for many destructions!’” (Al-Furqan, 14) So, he wants to be destroyed forever this time. He keeps telling it “Destroy me, destroy me, destroy me” like he says in this world. “I will cease to exist”. God makes him say it forever, his desire to cease to exist. But it will not happen. “They will shout out in it, ‘Our Lord! take us out! We will act rightly, differently from the way we used to act!’” In other words “take us to the world, let us correct our wrongdoings” they say. “Did We not let you live long enough for anyone who was going to pay heed to pay heed?” God says “did We not give you enough time?”, “And did not the warner come to you?”, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) or Prophet Jesus (pbuh) or prophets, “Taste it then! There is no helper for the wrongdoers.” (Surah Fatır, 37) So, God says “no one can take you out of there”. People drink whiskey and induce each other “dude, I will not interfere in your affairs, so don’t interfere mine”, they think they could approach God in such a saucy manner. “I will not interfere in Your affairs, so don’t interfere mine” they think they could say before God. God gave you everything; you make use of those blessings that God gave you. And you are pretty determined. Then don’t use them, don’t use any blessings. Don’t use any of God’s blessings. While having been created is a great blessing, a cause of joy, you make them a disadvantage for yourself. You are not grateful; you have no respect for God. God has a straight rationale, “I will take him and punish him forever” says God. “No, He wouldn’t do that” they say. You will see whether He does it or not. You witness it in this world, God destroys those who associate something with God, He ruins them.
