How will the Jahannumis enter into Jahannum

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am confused as to how the Jahannumis will enter into Jahannum. Will the manner of entering Jahannum differ between the different classes of people? However, I do not understand this, as I know everyone will be made to cross the Pulsiraat and the Jahannumis will be pulled down at this point into Jahannum. I have heard that the Jahannumis will enter Jahannum through the following methods: – Entering through one of seven Gates after travelling there in a big crowd. – Flung upside down. – Hurled inside. – Dragged on ones’ face by angels. (Perhaps there are more.) Will all this happen after being pulled down from the Pulsiraat? Please help me understand this.


A: The kuffaar will not cross over the pulsiraat, instead they will be dispatched to jahannum before the Muslims can cross over the pulsiraat.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
