39. Illuminated Quran: The Crowds

This surah mentions the crowds of people that will come to the gates of hell.  It says that these people are unbelievers.  They will be asked if Prophets were sent to them and they will answer yes.

Discussion question:  why does Allah (s) warn us about the fate of the unbelievers?  What does it mean to be an unbeliever?  Can we pray for unbelievers to see the truth?  Were different Prophets sent to different people all over the earth?  If certain people are veiled from accepting Allah (s) and his Prophets then why would they be taken to hell?  What do you think will happen to believers who were hard on unbelievers and other believers and drove them away from religion?

Then other crowds will be taken to the gardens of paradise because they feared Allah (s).

Discussion question:  what is the reward of the believers?  Do we hope that everyone realizes and comes with us there?
