SAQAR. سقر
“A. scorching heat.” According to the commentator, al-Baghawi it is the special division of hell set apart for the Magi. It is mentioned thus in the Qur’an Surah liv. 48: .” Taste ye the touch of saqar.”
Surah lxxiv. 26: “I will broil him in saqar! And what shall make thee know what saqar is?” it leaveth nought and spareth nought, blackening the skin of man.
