Muslims believe that God will hold every human, Muslim and non-Muslim, accountable for his or her deeds at a preordained time unknown to man. The archangel Israfil, will sound a horn sending out a “blast of truth”. Traditions say Prophet Muhammad ﷺ will be the first to be brought back to life.

Bodily resurrection is much insisted upon in the Qur’an, which challenges the Pre-Islamic Arabian concept of death. Resurrection is followed by judgement of all souls. According to the Qur’an, sins that can consign someone to hell include lying, dishonesty, corruption, ignoring God or God’s revelations, denying the resurrection, refusing to feed the poor, indulgence in opulence and ostentation, the economic exploitation of others, and social oppression.

There is a chance for salvation since Allah is all merciful, depending on a persons good deeds.

Hell (Jahannum)

The punishments in hell includes adhab, “pain or torment inflicted by way of chastiment; punishment”, a very painful punishment (see [Qur’an 29:55], [Qur’an 43:48]); khizy, “shame, disgrace, ignominy” ([Qur’an 16:27], [Qur’an 11:39]). The descriptions in the Qur’an of hell are very descriptive (see [Qur’an 4:56], [Qur’an 47:15] etc). The punishments in the Qur’an are contrasted not with release but with mercy ([Qur’an 29:21], [Qur’an 2:284], [Qur’an 3:129], etc).

Heaven (Jannah)

Islam views paradise as a place of joy and bliss. Islamic descriptions of heaven are described as physical pleasures, sometimes interpreted literally, sometimes allegorically. Heaven is most often described as a cool garden with running streams of unlimited food and drink. Some interpretations also promise enormous palaces staffed with multitudes of servants, and perfect, perpetually-virginal spouses. Despite the graphical descriptions of the physical pleasures, there are clear references to a greater joy that exceeds the pleasures of flesh: The acceptance from God, or good pleasure of God (ridwan) (see [Qur’an 9:72]).[Islam also has a strong mystical tradition which places these heavenly delights in the context of the ecstatic awareness of God.
