What was the reaction of the Prophet (PBUH) and Lady Fatima Zahra (AS) when the verses of torment were sent down?


SHAFAQNA – When the verses of torment were sent down by Allah (SWT) to the Prophet of Islam (PBUH), he cried very hard and his companions also cried. Ayahs 43-44 of Surah Al-Hijr, known as the torment verses, say: “And verily, hell is the promised abode for them all, and there are seven gates to hell, each of those gates allocated for a special type of sinners.” When Lady Fatima Zahra (AS) saw her father crying, she asked him: O’ father, what made you cry? The Prophet (PBUH) recited the above verses for Lady Fatima Zahra (AS) and she fell on the floor and said: Oh, alas! Oh, alas! for the one who enters the hell fire [1].
