While many Christians in the West are absolutely certain that people like Osama Bin Laden go immediately to hell when they die–typically forever–Islamic religious leaders aren’t so sure. Not only do they question our ability to know such things for certain, Muslims also believe that no one stays in hell forever no matter how heinous their sins. A quote from a recent article on this topic:
Mustafaa Carroll, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations branch in Houston, also suggested God’s mercy could reach far enough to pardon the sins of Islamic militants—even those who have neither repented nor sought to make restitution for their actions.
“God has a level of mercy that we can’t understand. He can forgive people for anything,” Carroll said. “We as humans are quick to want to condemn people to hell. But God is above human understanding and far more merciful than we are as people.”
Islam teaches that hell — or divine punishment — does not last for eternity. Those who are condemned will eventually be reconciled to God, Carroll said. The length of their punishments might correlate directly to the severity of their sin.
“In my opinion, suicide bombers will spend a lot of time in hell before they get out. But we should never claim to know for certain that anyone is in heaven or hell no matter what they do because only God can judge that,” Carroll said.
Makes me think that people like Rob Bell may gain a better hearing with Muslims than he does with some of his fellow Christians.
