Q. Scholars say that there is a Hadith which mentions that only one in a 1,000 persons will enter Jannat. That means 999 in every thousand will be assigned to Hell. Is this correct?

A. The narration regarding 999 out of 1,000 going to Jahannum is authentic and correct. The vast majority of man­kind is mushrik and kaafir, and also the vast majority of Muslims are grossly disobedient and rebellious, hence the Qur’aan Majeed states that the majority is mushrik and kaafir. May Allah Ta’ala save us and make us from the Inmates of Jannat. In this world, from its inception, Haqq (Truth) has always been a small mi­nority, and this Sunnah of Allah Ta’ala will remain for all time. Major­ity has no significance in matters per­taining to the Haqq. The Qur’aan Ma­jeed says:

“And, if you follow the majority on earth, then most cer­tainly you will be among the mushrikeen.”

Hence 999 of every thousand will be the tinders and in­mates of Hell-Fire.
