There is no fire in hell. Everyone has to bring their own

gulagha

by: Prof. Gul Agha

Vataayo Fakiiru’s amaan [mother] once said to him on a cold night: “Vataayo! You are close to God. It is very cold. Can’t you ask God to spare a tiny bit of the fire in hell to keep us poor people warm here?”

“Amaan!” Vataayo answered, “There is no fire in hell. Everyone has to bring their own.”
