Muslims More Numerous Than Catholics…

Muslims Surpass Catholics the Vatican Reports

Thauban reported that the Messenger of Allah, sallahu alaihi wa salaam, said:

  • “It is near that the nations will call one another against you just as the eaters call one another to their dishes.”
  • Somebody asked: “Is this because we will be few in numbers that day?”
  • He said: “Nay, but that day you shall be numerous, but you will be like the foam of the sea, and Allah will take the fear of you away from your enemies and will place weakness into your hearts.”
  • Somebody asked: “What is this weakness?
  • He said: “The love of the world and the dislike of death.” (Abu Dawud)

  1. As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmat Allah,

    That’s the hadith I first thought of when I read the article too. Allahmma ij’alna min al-muflihoon. Ameen.

    I also thought of the statement attributed to ‘Umar ibnul-khattab radiyaAllahu ‘anhu, when he said, “Fear your sins more than you fear the enemy as your sins are more dangerous to you than your enemy…If our sins were equal to those of our enemy, then they would defeat us due to their superior numbers and resources.”

    Jazaaki Allah khayr for this posting.

    How are you doing by the way?
