Abdullah Al-Muhaysini, a Saudi Jihadi Islamic scholar based in Syria, said in a video that he uploaded to his YouTube channel on May 6, 2020 that fires that have raged in Israel, Australia, China, France, and America are punishments that were sent down upon tyrants, infidels, and sinners in these countries, since Allah punishes such people with fire in this life as well as in the afterlife. He said that the fire in Hell, where he said sinners are roasted, is 70 times hotter than the fire in this world.
On-screen text: "And none knows the soldiers of your Lord, except Him. And [the description of Hell] is nothing but a reminder for Mankind."
Abdullah Al-Muhaysini: "Fire is not only a soldier used by Allah to punish sinners on judgement day. No! Even in this world, Allah uses it to punish tyrants. Even in this world, Allah uses it to burn infidels and sinners. My brothers, everybody saw the fires that raged in the Zionist entity for months. The countries of the world came to [Israel's] aid, but failed to extinguish them. The fires you were shown were torments brought down by Allah upon sinners. See also the fires in the forests of Australia, China, France, and America. They are on fire without any human intervention. People are vanquished. They surrender in the face of its power. [The Quran says:] 'Allah threatens His servants with that: Oh My servants, fear Me!' [The Quran says:] 'And We do not send signs, except as a warning.' Oh Allah! We can't tolerate the heat of the fire that we light in this world even for a second. It is all the more so with the heat of fire in Hell, which is seventy times hotter. Allah torments sinners in the Hellfire. Their bodies are roasted for months and years. By Allah! Simply mentioning [Hellfire] makes one's hair stand on end."
