M. abdullah shah:
Muslims may not know this, but Islam teaches that Allah will put the sins of some Muslims on Jews and Christians:
Sahih Muslim 6665
Abu Musa' reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: When it will be the Day of Resurrection Allah would deliver to every Muslim a Jew or a Christian and say: That is your rescue from Hell-Fire.1

This is not how the narration is understood by scholars, even conservative ones.

The narration, and others similar to it, refer to the understanding that there are ultimately going to be a fixed number of people who will reach Heaven and Hell. When a quantity of 10 humans manages to reach Heaven, a quantity of 10 humans will go to Hell - this in order to fulfill that final fixed number.

Heaven bound humans will be rewarded because of their belief and good deeds and not due to the disbelievers taking the burden of their sins. Believers who have committed sins will still have to pay their recompense in Hell, before they will be able to enter Heaven.

Similarly, individuals going to Hell is because of their disbelief and not to save Muslims.

For details, see Does the fact that a disbeliever will be a Muslim’s ransom from the Fire mean that none of the Muslims will ever enter the Fire?

Furthermore, a general principle regarding Hadith is that it cannot directly and explicitly contradict the Qur'an. If some narration appears to do so, then either the Hadith has been misunderstood or it is unreliable and therefore rejected.

On the "Jesus choosing to sacrifice himself" front, I wanted to ask, whether this sacrifice forgives all sins of Christians or just the "original sin" of apple eating. If it is all sins, then how could just one death be enough for all the atrocities that are committed by humans over thousands of years? And if it is just the "original sin", then why is this burden on the descendants of Adam and Eve who had absolutely nothing to do with that sin?

Other explanations of the Hadith:

* The meaning of the hadeeth which says that the sins of the Muslims will be placed on the kuffaar of the People of the Book
* Refutation: Muslim Dawagandist Paul Williams asks a Question

As'salamu Alaikum Everyone,

Jews and Christians are the most obsessed to convert Muslims out of Islam.  Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, here gave a Judgment Day Prophecy.  Misguiding the believers and the non-believers being forbidden is thoroughly discussed here:  (entries #130, 230, 237)

Take care,
Osama Abdallah
