Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
What happens to those who have no access to Islam? How are they judged?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Barraak answered this question as follows:
“Those who never hear the call of Islam, or they hear about it in an incorrect form, will be tested on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever obeys will enter Paradise and whoever disobeys will enter Hell, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): ‘… And We never punish until We have sent a Messenger (to give warning)’ [al-Isra 17:15].” And Allaah knows best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
