AL-HUTAMAH الحطمة
A division of Hell, mentioned in the Qur’an, Surah civ: –
“Woe to every backbitter.
Who amasseth wealth and storeth it against the future!
He thinketh surely that his wealth shall be with him for ever.
Nay! For verily he shall be flung into al-hutamah,
And who shall teach thee what al-hutamah is?
It is God’s kindled fire,
Which shall mount above the hearts of the damned;
It shall verily rise over them like a vault,
On outstretched columns.”
The Imam al-Baghawi says it is the division of Hell specially reserved for the Jews.
