According To Islam, Here Are The First 3 People To Enter Hell

Jahanum, Hawiya, Hutama, and Saqar are the names Allah has used in the Holy Quran for hell. Hell will be a place for disbelievers in God, hypocrites, idolaters, the arrogant, those who treat religion as a pastime, have broken the treaty, made fun of God’s messengers or reality of Day of Judgment, murderers, ones misappropriating inheritance especially of orphans, those who are accused of slandering chaste women will dwell in hell. As Allah says in Quran that,

Indeed, those who disbelieve and commit wrong [or injustice] – never will Allah forgive them, nor will He guide them to a path. Except for the path of Hell; they will abide therein forever. And that, for Allah, is [always] easy. – (Surah Nisa, verse 168, 169)

But Who Will Enter The Hell First?

According to a hadith, the first three people whom Allah will call to send them to the hell will be a scholar, a martyr, and a wealthy man. The hadith is as follows,

The Martyr:

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) say:

The first of people against whom judgment will be pronounced on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who died a martyr. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favors and he will recognize them. [ The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I fought for you until I died a martyr. He will say: You have lied – you did but fight that it might be said [of you]: He is courageous. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.

The Scholar:

[Another] will be a man who has studied [religious] knowledge and has taught it and who used to recite the Quran. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favors and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I studied [religious] knowledge and I taught it and I recited the Quran for Your sake. He will say: You have lied – you did but study [religious] knowledge that it might be said [of you]: He is learned. And you recited the Quran that it might be said [of you]: He is a reciter. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.

The Richman:

[Another] will be a man whom Allah had made rich and to whom He had given all kinds of wealth. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favors and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I left no path [untrodden] in which You like money to be spent without spending in it for Your sake. He will say: You have lied – you did but do so that it might be said [of you]: He is open-handed. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.  –(Sahih Muslim; Book #020, Hadith #4688)

May Allah save us from the punishment of hell fire, Ameen!
