Do all Muslims go to Hell?

Answer 1

No, of course not (and I say that as a former chaplain). But then, it depends on which religious group you are asking. In some fundamentalist Protestant denominations, they believe only their members will be saved, and everyone else (Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, and the "wrong" kinds of Christians) will go to hell. But only a small percentage of people still believe that. The rest of us believe that any person, no matter what his or her religion, will be judged on whether they lived an honorable and compassionate life and whether they tried to make the world a better place. If they did this, they will be rewarded in this life, and if there is a next life, they will be rewarded there too.

Answer 2

This depends on the perspective of the Answerer.

  • Atheists would say that Muslims do not go to Hell since there is no Hell.
  • Jews would say that Muslims have a stake in the World to Come (the Jewish "Good Place") provided they follow the Seven Noahide Laws (which almost all Muslims follow).
  • Christians would say that all Muslims go to Hell because they deny Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
  • Muslims would say that Muslims who are true believers (as opposed to Hypocrites or Munafiqin) will go to Heaven. Those who do not truly believe will go to Hell.
