Names of Hell

Names of Hell
I am looking for the different name of the Hell-fire.  I have found these: Blazing Fire (35:6),  Flaming Fire (33:64),  Crushing Fire (104:4,5), and Burning Flame (83:16).  Are these correct and could you give me a few more?


be to Allaah.


“The Fire of Hell has many names, which reflect its characteristics.
It is called Jaheem, Jahannam, Lazaa, al-Sa’eer,
Saqar, al-Hatamah and al-Haawiyah, according to
its various characteristics. That which is named is one and the same.
The believer is obliged to believe in and affirm all the names that
have been proven in the Book of Allaah or the Sunnah of His Messenger

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).” 

Majmoo’ Fataawa wa Rasaa’il al-‘Uthaymeen
by al-Salmaan, 2/58. 

It is called al-Jaheem (fire) because of its blazing

It is called Jahannam (Hell) because of the depth
of its pit – according to al-Qaamoos. 

It is called Lazaa (blazing fire) because of its

It is called al-Sa’eer (blazing flame) because
it is kindled and ignited (this word is derived from the root sa’ara
meaning to kindle).  

It is called Saqar (Hell) because of the intensity
of its heat. 

It is called al-Hatamah (broken pieces, debris)
because it breaks and crushes everything that is thrown into it. 

It is called al-Haawiyah (chasm, abyss) because
the one who is thrown into it is thrown from top to bottom… and so on. 

Some of the scholars, mufassireen (Qur’aan commentators)
and others mentioned other names besides these. 

Some of them said that these names are the names for
the various levels and degrees of Hell, and some of them divided people
into various categories on the basis of these levels. But it is not
correct to divide people in Hell into categories on this basis, even
though the division of people into categories on the basis of their
actions is something that is proven from the texts – just as it is not
correct to name the various levels of Hell in the manner in which they
mentioned. The correct view is that each of these names which they mentioned
is a name for the whole of Hell, not for a part of it in exclusion of
another part.

Day) – al-Jannah wa’l-Naar (Paradise and Hell) by Dr. ‘Umar al-Ashqar,

And Allaah knows best.
