A scholar has claimed that the holy Prophet’s
parents are in Hell, because they were not Muslims. I need a clarification on
the matter. He claimed that the Prophet Mohammad (sws) had once told a Muslim
who had non-Muslim parents that his parents were in Hell. He got upset and the
prophet clarified that his parents were with the Prophet’s parents, in Hell.
Now, I think
that all those who were not introduced to the Holy Prophet should not be in
Hell, because they existed before the revelation of Qur’ān or the advent of the
Prophet (sws). I am sure that the Prophet’s parents followed Abraham’s religion
which was also the predecessor of Islam in Arabia. Please, elaborate and comment
with reference to the Qur’ān and Sunnah.
