What Will Happen to The Uninformed People About Any Prophets?
Will the people of the period of fatrat (interregnum) be liable for religion?
We never punish until we have sent a messenger.”
(Surah al-Isra, 15)
Regarding this ayah, there is a generous consensus among the ulama (scholars) that people who lived in the period of fatrat (interregnum) will not be punished because of the details of religion.
Moreover, according to Imam Shafi and Imam Ash’ari, even if they do not believe in the tenets of Islam and deny it, they are also in salvation and they are not liable; because those who are liable for the commands and prohibitions of Allah (swt) are those who were sent prophets.
Besides, for those people to be liable of the religion, they should have been informed of the prophet and have comprehended the importance of the prophethood duty. If the revelations, tenets and teachings of the former prophets remain hidden because of the lapse of time or heedlessness, people of the period of fatrat (interregnum) are not liable for those facts.
