in response to reader comment: Islam's scriptures

This is actually what the Holy Quran says in 3:106-107

003.106
YUSUFALI: On the Day when some faces will be (lit up with) white, and some faces will be (in the gloom of) black: To those whose faces will be black, (will be said): "Did ye reject Faith after accepting it? Taste then the penalty for rejecting Faith."
PICKTHAL: On the Day when (some) faces will be whitened and (some) faces will be blackened; and as for those whose faces have been blackened, it will be said unto them: Disbelieved ye after your (profession of) belief? Then taste the punishment for that ye disbelieved.
SHAKIR: On the day when (some) faces shall turn white and (some) faces shall turn black; then as to those whose faces turn black: Did you disbelieve after your believing? Taste therefore the chastisement because you disbelieved.

003.107
YUSUFALI: But those whose faces will be (lit with) white,- they will be in (the light of) Allah's mercy: therein to dwell (for ever).
PICKTHAL: And as for those whose faces have been whitened, in the mercy of Allah they dwell for ever.
SHAKIR: And as to those whose faces turn white, they shall be in Allah's mercy; in it they shall-abide.

Now judge yourself! I think Mr. Roy is totally wrong in his interpretation. I am just afraid that he did it intentionally.
