Name of Hell-Fire: Samoom
Samoom is from samm, which means poison and such wind has a very poisonous effect.
Samoom is used for such wind that is scorching and extremely hot; it is as if the heat is coming inside of you. It is used for scorching heat and a hot sand storm. Samoom refers to fire that is extremely hot and fire that can nearly kill. Samoom carries three meanings:
1- Extreme heat
2- That which can kill the other
3- Smokeless fire
Samoom is a heat storm that is poisonous in its effect and it goes through the pores of a person, burning their skins.
Have you ever been in a sandstorm? In extreme scorching wind? How does it feel?
The Believers will specifically thank Allah for protecting them from the punishment of Samoom; as they feared it in the dunya:
قَالُوا إِنَّا كُنَّا قَبْلُ فِي أَهْلِنَا مُشْفِقِينَ
We ask Allah ta’ala to make us among those who will make this duaa in Jannah, Ameen.
