The Khawaarij are the Dogs of the Hellfire
Shaykh ‘Abdul-Qaadir Al-Junayd


The second question: What is the meaning of the statement of the Prophet ﷺ that the Khawaarij are the dogs of the Fire?


Dogs of the Fire; it has been said that they are the dogs of the Fire because they will be in Jahannam in the images of dogs. Or (it is also said) that they, within the Hellfire, will be transformed into dogs due to the severity of the punishment.


May Allaah reward you, O Shaykh.
