Infidels will say, would that We Were the Muslims!! By Mohammad Rafique Etesame It may be that those who disbelieve, wish ardently that they were Muslims. Let them eat and enjoy life, and let them (false) hope beguile them, they will come to know. (Al-Hajar:3) These verses reveal that a time will come when the infidels and the other none-Muslims will wish seriously that they were Muslims. The question is: when will this time come? So according to the commentators the first occasion was that when the chieftains of the infidels of Mecca were defeated by the poor Muslims of Madina in the battle of Badar. Then they wished if they were Muslims, they had not been dishonored and defeated. And when every none-Muslim goes to die and sees the angels of death and torment, then he wishes seriously that if he were Muslim, he would die easily and would not be punished. The last occasion will be that when it was Day of Judgement and the Muslims will be entered in Paradise and the infidels and the sinful Muslims will be entered in Hellfire; then the infidels will criticize the Muslims saying that “what type of benefit did you take from your Islam that you also are being burnt with us?” Than Allah Almighty will ordain that every faithful believer remaining in the Hell-fire should be bring out from it, than these Muslims will be entered in Paradise and the doors of Hell will be closed forever. This is the great benefit of being a Muslim that they will get rid of the Hell-fire.
