The Depth of Hell

Abu Hurayrah (radi Allahu anha) reported: We were in the company of the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) when we heard a bang. Thereupon the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said. “Do you know what this (sound) is?” We said, “Allah and His Messenger know better.” He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “That is a stone which was thrown into Hell seventy years before and it has just reached its bottom.”

[Sahih Muslim]

Commentary:

The stone was thrown and took seventy years to reach the bottom of Hell, one can imagine the torments and horrors of Hell from its depth.

May Allah Save us from the Punishment of Hell. Ameen!
