Q: What is the soundness of the statement which is attributed to Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (May Allah have mercy upon him) concerning the hellfire vanishing (i.e coming to an end)?
A: You are not in need of (busying yourself with) this issue, and you will not be asked about it on the day of judgement. It is not from the affairs of your religion, (rather) it is from those inquisitive issues. Leave it. It is attributed to Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (May Allah have mercy upon him) and Allah knows best, however it is not an issue from which there is a religious benefit.
