Muslims Are Not to Judge Who Specifically Is or Isn’t Going to Hell

It is not the job of a Muslim to judge specifically who is or isn’t going to the Hell Fire. We don’t know how Allah will judge people on individual levels. Allah Says, meaning of which is, in many places in the Qur’an:

Not for you, [O Muhammad, but for Allah ], is the decision whether He should [cut them down] or forgive them or punish them, for indeed, they are wrongdoers. And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. He forgives whom He wills and punishes whom He wills. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. [Qur’an 3:128-129]

And [there are] others deferred until the command of Allah – whether He will punish them or whether He will forgive them. And Allah is Knowing and Wise. [Qur’an 9:106]

You are human beings from among those He has created. He forgives whom He wills, and He punishes whom He wills. [Qur’an 5:18]

Here is also a nice short talk on this topic by Sh. Omar Suleiman:
