Al-Araf according to the Mohammedan theology, is the wall of separation between heaven and hell. Those whose good and evil deeds exactly balance each other are placed astride this wall, they being deemed not worthy of heaven nor yet deserving of hell. Those who have gone to war without their parents' consent and have fallen in battle are placed in the same category. The Mohammedan Al-Araf bears some resemblance to the Roman purgatory; but there are decided differences.
