Encounters during the Mi'raj: The People with Fire in Their Bellies

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

During the night of the Mi’raj, the Prophet (s.a.w.), accompanied by Jibril (a.s.), travelled until the Prophet (s.a.w.) saw groups of people whose lips resembled the lips of camels.  Their mouths were being pried open and they would be stoned.  One version stated a rock from Jahannam was placed in their mouths and then it would come out again from their posteriors.  The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “I heard them clamouring to Allah.  O Jibril, who are these?”

He replied, “They are those of your ummah who eat up the property of orphans and commit injustice.  They are eating nothing but a fire for their bellies, and they shall be roasted in it.”
