The True Nature of Hellfire in the Qur’an

Elizabeth Clare Prophet does not immediately come to mind when we think of Islam, and she, for her part, has little to say about Islam. Her body of work, the “Teachings of the Ascended Masters”, is derived not only from the Masters themselves, but from her profoundly Christian sensibility. Indeed, she is Christian to a fault, and the messages of the Buddha, Master Kung (Confucius) and other eastern teachers and saints sound too much like those of Mother Mary (the Virgin Mary) to be entirely convincing. It is different with what may be the central idea of Mrs. Prophet’s oeuvre, the idea that there are “flames” of various kinds, through which the Holy Spirit performs its work in us.

There are flames of purification, wisdom, and healing; and above all, the violet flame of mercy, which is invoked through the decree, “I AM a being of violet fire, I AM the purity God desires”. I never found Mrs. Prophet’s poetry to be memorable. My readers can understand by now that I look upon some of her writings with a jaundiced eye---but I am sufficiently impressed by the world view that they represent. I am also thankful, because my study of the flames of the Ascended Masters has led me to a novel understanding of the Qur’an.

Intuitive insight as well as reason strongly suggest that “hellfire” is just such a flame as we have been discussing. For my part, I firmly believe it to be so. In this view the fire itself is not painful, but the experience of it can be uncomfortable because it releases impurities and toxins in the astral body. Hellfire would be a flame that is applied with precision to the “soul” of a person who has died. In this realm there is no real sense of time, and the process of purification can seem to occur in an “eternal” moment, which mystics and clairvoyants among the living have wrongly interpreted as unending time. It must be emphasized that the flame of hell is given temporarily to even the most evil men and women. If it were actually eternal it would be purposeless, for what purpose can there be for an truly eternal hell, except to satisfy hatred or spite. But although God seems to hate, even His hatred is limited. All sins are finite, and all sinners are finite beings. The discomfort felt in the midst of hellfire is limited in intensity and duration. The only purpose for the flame is the restoration of the soul, which eventually recovers its ability to unite itself with God.

This may be something of a side show, but it adresses the issue of how one as a transgressor in need of purification, gets from point a, to point c.
Islam allows war in self-defence (Qur'an 22:39), to defend Islam (rather than to spread it), to protect those who have been removed from their homes by force because they are Muslims (Qur'an 22:40), and to protect the innocent who are being oppressed (Qur'an 4:75).
Those who readily fight in the cause of God are those who forsake this world in favor of the Hereafter. Whoever fights in the cause of God, then gets killed, or attains victory, we will surely grant him a great recompense
Qur'an 4:74
Some of the more contradictory verses include Surah al-Tawba:
29, a Sword Verse:
Fight against those who believe not in God and the Last Day [of Judgment],
nor forbid that which has been forbidden by God and his Messenger, and
those who acknowledge not the religion of truth among the people of the
scripture [Jews and Christians] until they pay the jizyah [a tax levied on
Jews and Christians], and feel themselves subdued.
11
Verses 29 to 40 in al-Tawba appear to contradict earlier Meccan
verses on tolerance. Peters explains that scholars see these verses as
abrogating, or rendering void the earlier verses where Muhammad
was ordered to preach, but avoid confl ict with the unbelievers. Then,
he was to discuss and try to convince them to believe (as in Verse
16:125).24


If anyone killed a person - unless it was for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed the whole people
Qur'an 5:32
Muslims must only wage war according to the principles of Allah's justice.
Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the way of the Shaitan.
Qur'an 4:76
Fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but do not transgress limits. God does not love transgressors.
Qur'an 2:190
So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates.
Qur'an 47:4
Fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but do not transgress limits. God does not love transgressors.
Qur'an 2:190
ON THE 911 ATTACKERS
"Their Al Qaeda handlers had instructed them to meditate on al-Tawba and Anfal, two lengthy suras from the Koran, the holy scripture of Islam. The passages make for harrowing reading. God promises to "cast terror into the hearts of those who are bent on denying the truth; strike, then, their necks!" (Koran 8.12). God instructs his Muslim followers to kill unbelievers, to capture them, to ambush them (Koran 9.5). Everything contributes to advancing the holy goal: "Strike terror into God's enemies, and your enemies" (Koran 8.60). "
Perhaps in their final moments, the hijackers took refuge in these words, in which God lauds acts of terror and massacre.
However, he (Mohammed) eventually claimed to have a vision in which God told him and his followers that they were not making enough headway by merely trying to convince people with words. If people were not going to get convinced with words, then he should convince them with the sword.

This seems incredibly off-topic. Is Islam a Pagan religion?

Yes, and I am a time travellor from the tenth dimension...
