What is the punishment of Satan?
Will he enter Hellfire just like a Muslim person who has never performed any of the obligations imposed by Allah, or is Hellfire divided into ranks like Jannah (Paradise)?
The punishment of Satan and his followers is Hellfire, as Allah declares this in the Qur'an saying,
(Allâh) said: "The Truth is - and the Truth I say -
That I will fill Hell with you [Iblîs (Satan)] and those of them (mankind) that follow you, together."
(Surah Sad, 38: 84-85) Hellfire is divided into ranks, just like Jannah. The scholars declared this in Allah's saying,
Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depth (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them.
(Surah Al-Nisa', 4: 145) Allah also says,
Is then one who follows (seeks) the good Pleasure of Allâh (by not taking illegally a part of the booty) like the one who draws on himself the Wrath of Allâh (by taking a part of the booty illegally - Ghulul)? - his abode is Hell, and worst, indeed is that destination!
They are in varying grades with Allâh, and Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.
(Surah Al-'Imran, 3: 162-163)May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
