The father of the Prophet is in the Fire

Questioner: And [the question] is, we have people who say that ‘Abdullaah, rather, the father of Muhammad (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) – he is [destined] for the Fire; And [there are] people who say no, rather he is [destined] for Paradise because he is the father of the Prophet. [Please] benefit us [with a response and] may Allaah reward you with good. And am I sinful for [asking] this question, and if I am sinful [in doing so], then is there any atonement [I am required to make]? [Please] benefit us [with a response and] may Allaah reward you with good, and [may] you remain [in good].

Shaykh: Certainly the father of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) died upon disbelief, and he is in the Fire, as is confirmed in the Saheeh [of Imaam Muslim][1], that a man came to the Prophet (‘alayhis-salaatu was-salaam) and said: O Messenger of Allaah, where is my [deceased] father? He replied:

«Your father is in the Fire».

So when he turned to leave, the Prophet (‘alayhis-salaatu was-salaam) called him [back] and said to him:

«Indeed, my father and your father are [both] in the Fire».

Questioner: Yes.

Shaykh: And this is the text of the hadeeth from the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and based upon this, then the father of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is in the Fire, just like the other disbelievers. Yes.

Questioner: Yes.

Footnote:
[1] Saheeh Muslim – Volume 1, Page 191, No.203:
Anas (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhu) reported that a man said: “O Messenger of Allaah, where is my [deceased] father?” He said:

«[He is] in the Fire».

So when he turned to leave, he called him back, and said:

«Indeed, my father and your father are [both] in the Fire».

أبو النبي في النار

السائل: و هو أنّ لدينا ناس يقولون إنّ عبد الله أي أبا محمد – صلى الله عليه و سلم – هو للنار؛ و ناس يقولون لا، بل هو للجنة لأنه أبو نبي. أفيدونا جزاكم الله خيراً؛ و هل عليّ إثم في هذا السؤال، وإذا كان عليّ إثم فهل له كفارة؟ أفيدونا جزاكم الله خيراً ودمتم.

الشيخ: إن أب النبي – صلى الله عليه و سلم – مات على الكفر، وهو في النار كما ثبت في الصحيح أن رجلاً جاء إلى النبي – عليه الصلاة و السلام – فقال: يا رسول الله أين أبي؟ قال: أبوك في النار. فلما انصرف دعاه النبي – عليه الصلاة و السلام – فقال له: إنّ… فقال له: أبي وأبوك في النار.

السائل: نعم.

الشيخ: و هذا نص في الحديث عن النبي – صلى الله عليه و سلم – و على هذا فيكون أب النبي – صلى الله عليه و سلم – كغيره من الكفار يكون في النار؛ نعم.

السائل: نعم.

صحيح مسلم 1/191 رقم 203:

عَنْ أَنَسٍ، أَنَّ رَجُلًا قَالَ: يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، أَيْنَ أَبِي؟ قَالَ: «فِي النَّارِ»، فَلَمَّا قَفَّى دَعَاهُ، فَقَالَ: «إِنَّ أَبِي وَأَبَاكَ فِي النَّارِ»
