عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: «نَارُكُمْ جُزْءٌ مِنْ سَبْعِينَ جُزْءًا مِنْ نَارِ جَهَنَّمَ»، قِيلَ: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ، إِنْ كَانَتْ لَكَافِيَةً. قَالَ: «فُضِّلَتْ عَلَيْهِنَّ بِتِسْعَةٍ وَسِتِّينَ جُزْءًا كُلُّهُنَّ مِثْلُ حَرِّهَا».

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Your fire is one-seventieth part of Hellfire." It was said: "O Messenger of Allah, it would have been enough." Thereupon, he said: "It is sixty-nine parts in excess of (the heat of) fire in this world, each of them being equivalent to its heat."
Sahih/Authentic. - [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Explanation

The fire in this world is only one-seventieth of the Fire of Hell. If all the firewood and fuel of this world, in all its types, were collected and set ablaze, one part of Hellfire, which consists of seventy parts, would be severer than this fire. It was said: O Messenger of Allah, the fire of this world would have been sufficient to torment the sinners and dwellers of Hell. He said: The Fire of Hell has 69 parts in excess of the fire of this world, and each part is equivalent to its heat. The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) repeated that Hellfire is far severer than the fire of this world to point out how the punishment inflicted by the Creator is superior to what is produced by His servants.
