What does the Quran say about Hell?

O my soul! Now, I will leave you to some Quranic verses. See what else the Quran says about Hell. Listen to what it says… If you have some share of guidance, you will receive your share from these verses and repent:

Those who reject Our Signs We shall soon cast into the Fire: as often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for fresh skins, that they may taste the penalty: for Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise. (an-Nisa 56)

The companions of the fire will call the companions of the garden; "pour down to us water or anything that Allah doth provide for your sustenance." They will say: "Both these things hath Allah forbidden to those who rejected Him.― Such as took their religion to be mere amusement and play and were deceived by the life of the world." That day shall We forget them as they forgot the meeting of this day of theirs, and as they rejected Our signs. al-(Araf 50-51)

In gulps will he sip it, but never well he be near swallowing it down his throat: death will come to him from every quarter, yet will he not die: and in front of him will be a chastisement unrelenting. (Ibrahim 17)

When it sees them from a place far off, they will hear its fury and its raging sigh. And when they are cast, bound together, into a constricted place therein, they will plead for destruction there and then! "This day plead not for a single destruction: plead for destruction oft-repeated!" Say: "Is that best, or the eternal Garden, promised to the righteous?? (al-Furqan 12-15)

But those who reject (Allah)― for them will be the Fire of Hell: no term shall be determined for them so they should die, nor shall its Penalty be lightened for them: Thus do We reward every ungrateful one! Therein will they cry aloud (for assistance): "Our Lord! Bring us out: we shall work righteousness, not the (deeds) we used to do!"― Did we not give you long enough life so that he that would should receive admonition? And (moreover) the warner came to you. So taste ye (the fruit of your deeds): for the Wrongdoers there is no helper.” (Fatir 36-37)

The Day that the enemies of Allah will be gathered together to the Fire they will be marched in ranks. At length, when they reach the (Fire), their hearing, their sight, and their skins will bear witness against them, as to (all) their deeds. They will say to their skins: "Why bear ye witness against us?" They will say: "Allah hath given us speech― (He) Who giveth speech to everything: He created you for the first time, and unto Him were ye to return. "Ye did not seek to hide yourselves, lest your hearing your sight, and your skins should bear witness against you! But ye did think that Allah knew not many of the things that ye used to do! "But this thought of yours which ye did entertain concerning your Lord, hath brought you to destruction and (now) have ye become of those utterly lost!" If, then, they have patience, the Fire will be a Home for them! And if they beg to be received into favour, will they not (then) be received.. (Fussilet 19-24)

There are so many verses we can quote about Hell that we can write a separate book with them. We have just mentioned a few of them.

O my soul! You have listened to some Quranic verses. You have heard about Hell. Have you come to your senses? Or, do you still insist on rebelling your Lord? If you have not chosen the way to follow yet, listen to some of the hadiths of the Prophet (pbuh). See what that luminous person says and against what kind of a torture he warns.
