Islam teaches that after we die, we will be raised up again for judgment by Allah. On the Day of Judgment, all people will either be rewarded with eternity in Heaven, or punished with eternity in Hell. Learn more about how Muslims view sin and the afterlife, heaven and hell.
Among Muslims, the Day of Judgment is also known as Youm Al-Qiyama
(The Day of Reckoning). It is a day when all beings are raised to life again to face judgment and learn their fate.
The ultimate goal of all Muslims is to be rewarded with a place in Heaven (Jannah)
. The Quran describes Heaven
as a beautiful garden, close to Allah, filled with dignity and satisfaction.
It would be unfair of Allah to treat believers and disbelievers the same; or to reward those who do good deeds the same as wrong-doers. The fire of Hell
awaits those who reject Allah or cause mischief on the earth. Hell is described in the Quran
as a miserable existence of constant suffering and shame.
