On the morning of Saturday, August 2nd, I got in a taxi in Erbil, the regional capital of Kurdish Iraq, and asked the driver to take me to the Khazir refugee camp.
This was a scary-ish thing to do.
The “scary” part is a result of the fact that the Khazir camp is outside of the borders of the somewhat autonomous Kurdish region, one of the only secure parts of the country.
The “ish” part comes from the fact that the Khazir camp, though outside of Kurdish borders, is still in an area currently controlled by the Peshmerga—the Kurdish army.
Iraq has been a scary place for a while now, for a number of reasons, but it’s currently scary in italics because of the terrorist group we’ve all gotten to know about in the past three months—ISIS.
Hell is a consequence of our choices and not a “scary
tactic” by Allah. Hell is a gradual, eventual deterioration if you go against the way you were designed. Those who don’t believe in it still know exactly what it is. And those who don’t believe in Hell
still want justice for every crime on the planet, because inherently
we want wrongs to be righted.
So Hell is also a place for those who have perverted justice — and secretly, everyone do want this.
Only sensitive Westerners with a pseudo-political-correctness have
a problem with it, until it involves injustice against their family.
May Allah protect us from Hell and grant us Jannah…
