CHAPTER: THROWING OF NON-BELIEVERS IN HELL-FIRE FOR BELIEVERS AS DIVINE GRACE AND MERCY
Abu Musa' reported that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: When it will be the Day of Resurrection Allaah would deliver to every Muslim a Jew or a Christian and say: That is your rescue from Hell-Fire.
Abu Burda reported on the authority of his father that Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: No Muslim would die but Allaah would admit in his stead a Jew or a Christian in Hell-Fire. 'Umar b. Abd al-'Aziz took an oath: By One besides Whom there is none worthy of worship (in truth) but He, thrice that his father had narrated that to him from Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam).
This hadith has been transmitted on the authority of 'Aun b. Utba.
Abu Burda reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: There would come people amongst the Muslims on the Day of Resurrection with as heavy sins as a mountain, and Allaah would forgive them and He would place in their stead the Jews and the Christians. (As far as I think), Abu Raub said: I do not know as to who is in doubt. Abu Burda said: I narrated it to 'Umar b. 'Abd al-'Aziz, whereupon he said: Was it your father who narrated it to you from Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam)? I said: Yes.
Safwan b. Muhriz reported that a person said to Ibn 'Umar: How did you hear Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying something about intimate conversation? He said: I heard him say: A believer will be brought to his Lord, the Exalted and Glorious, on the Day of Resurrection and He would place upon him His veil (of Light) and make him confess his faults and say: Do you recognise (your faults)? He would say: My Lord, I do recognise (them). He (the Lord) would say: I concealed them for you in the world. And today I forgive them. And he would then be given the Book containing (the account of his) good deeds. And so far as the non-believers and hypocrites are concerned, there would be general announcement about them before all creation telling them that these (people, i. e. non-believers and hypocrites) told a lie about Allaah.
