Hope in Allah's Mercy
Allah, the Exalted, says:
"Say: O `Ibadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)!
Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: verily, Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful".
"And never do We requit in such a way except those who are ungrateful (disbelievers)".
'(Say:) `Truly, it has been revealed to us that the torment will be for him who denies (believes not in the
Oneness of Allah, and in His Messengers), and turns away (from the truth and obedience of Allah)". (20:48)
"And My Mercy embraces all things".

`Ubadah bin As-Samit (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"He who
bears witness that there is no true god except Allah, alone having no partner with Him, that Muhammad is His slave
and His Messenger, that `Isa (Jesus) is His slave and Messenger and he (Jesus) is His Word which He
communicated to Maryam (Mary) and His spirit which He sent to her, that Jannah is true and Hell is true; Allah will
make him enter Jannah accepting whatever deeds he accomplished".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Another narration in Muslim is: the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Whosoever testifies that there is no true god
except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, Allah (SWT) saves him from the Fire (of Hell)".
This Hadith confirms that all Prophets of Allah were men and thus refutes those who attribute
divinity to them and exclude them from the category of men or regard them a part of Allah, as Christians believes
Prophet `Isa
(Jesus to be Christ)
by regarding him Allah or His son, or the Jews do Prophet `Uzair by venerating him
as son of Allah. The misconception has also taken hold of a sect of the Muslims. They have invented the belief that
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is "Light from the Light of Allah". Thus further considering to be of him with Divine
qualities. They exclude him from the category of men. This Hadith tells us that the belief that Prophets were men
constitutes part of Faith and denial of it is the denial of a part of Faith and amounts to evasion from Tauhid -
Oneness of Allah.
Prophet `Isa (Jesus) has been referred in the Qur'an as "Kalimatullah" (the Word of Allah)
(4:171). What these
words really mean is that he was born in an unusual manner, without being fathered by anyone, only on the express
fiat of Allah.
This Hadith shows that a major sin does not cast a Muslim out of the fold of Islam, as is believed by certain deviant
sects who have gone astray. Such a person does remain a Muslim and his eligibility for admission into Jannah also
remains intact but his admission entirely depends on the pleasure of Allah. He may forgive a sinful Muslim and send
him to Jannah even in the initial stage or keep him in Hell for sometime and then send him to Jannah. Thus, when it
is said that Muslims are protected against Hell, it means that they will not abide in Hell for ever. It will be a
temporary phase varying with his sins. When that punishment comes to an end, or even before it, when Almighty,
Allah, wills, he will be removed from Hell to Jannah.
