He is asking: why are most of the people on earth disbelievers, and why does Allah want them to enter Hell?I am wondering: why are most of the people on earth non-Muslims? As far as I know, Allah’s love for His creation is seventy times greater than the love of a mother for her child, so why are the majority non-Muslims? Is it true that no one will ever enter Paradise except Muslims, and Ahl as-Sunnah in particular? If this is true, then that means that no one who will enter Paradise except a percentage that is very small in comparison to the total number of people on earth. So why does Allah want the majority of His creation to enter Hell?
Ruling on mocking Islam and those who are committed to itIf someone says to another person, “Recite Quran over this device and it should work” or “Because you recited Quran over it, it will not work,” as a joke, does that come under the heading of mocking the verses? Or is it mocking the person who recited? What is the guideline regarding the issue of mockery?
Ruling on the wife of one who reviles religionI heard that if a man reviles religion, his wife becomes divorced from him, and he has to repent, seek forgiveness and do a new marriage contract. How true is this?.
Can ahaad hadiths be accepted with regard to ‘aqeedah?I heard someone say that ‘aqeedah cannot be proven by means of ahaad hadiths, because they are based on probability and not based on certainty. What is your response to that?.
Some criticisms of the belief of Ibn Rushd (Averroes)What is the belief of Imam Ibn Rushd, and what was the true nature of his difference of opinion with Imam Abu Haamid al-Ghazaali?

Guidelines on forms of the cross that are prohibitedI want to ask about the cross and what its forms are. Are the plus and multiplication signs regarded as being forms of the cross? Because I am confused about this matter, as are many other brothers, and I cannot find any answer to this question.
Ruling on objecting to some of the shar’i rulings that have been prescribed by AllaahA man says that some of the shar’i rulings need to be re-examined and they need to be changed, because they are not appropriate to the current age, such as the male's share of inheritance being equal to the share of two females. What is the shar’i ruling on those who say such things?.
Why Do Muslims Kiss the Black Stone?Is the wisdom behind kissing the Black Stone to seek blessing (barakah) thereby?
Ruling on sitting with one who does not pray and who denies that hijab is obligatory and mocks it, and mocks ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her)What is the ruling on being in company with a person who does not pray or fast, he also denies that hejab is obligatory and makes fun of it. I heard him once making fun of A’esha may Allah be pleased with her. What is the ruling especially if he was not one of my womb-related relatives?.
Atheism is a greater sin than shirkWhich is a greater sin: Atheism or polytheism?.
The fate of those who commit major sins, if they die persisting in those sinsAllah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “The [unmarried] woman or [unmarried] man found guilty of sexual intercourse - lash each one of them with a hundred lashes” [an-Noor 24:2] “And those who accuse chaste women and then do not produce four witnesses - lash them with eighty lashes” [an-Noor 24:4] “[As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah . And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise” [al-Maa’idah 5:38]. If they commit major sins such as these, and there is no one to apply the rulings to them, and they die without having repented, how will Allah judge them on the Day of Resurrection?
“The Secret” and “The Law of Attraction”I heard about a book that is very popular, which is called The Secret. I read it and I found that it is mainly discussing a concept called the “law of attraction”, which states that like is attracted to like, and that whatever happens to a person, good or bad, is the result of his thoughts. What is your opinion of this book, The Secret, and what does Islam say about the law of attraction?
The view of Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen regarding the “excuse of ignorance”What is the view of Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) concerning the “excuse of ignorance” in the case of major shirk? I have heard and read two views of his. He answered a questioner in an-Noor ‘ala ad-Darb when he asked him about Muslims worshipping graves, saying: It is ignorance on the part of the questioner to call them Muslims. And he had another view in which he said that they are still to be regarded as Muslims, because of their ignorance and because there is no one to teach them. Did the Shaykh have two views, one earlier and one later, after he realised the correct view on this issue? Which of the two views is the correct one, that is supported by shar‘i evidence?

Praying behind someone who writes amuletsIs it permissible to pray behind an imam who writes amulets, which some people believe give protection against witchcraft and the evil eye? If it is not permissible, what should we do? Please note that we live in a village where there is only one mosque, in which the prayers led by this imam.

Showing disrespect to Allaah, may He be glorified, by of jokingMy question deals with a friend of mine who was ignorantly joking. When my friend was teased by another friend he ignorantly picked up his phone out of joking and said I have to tell Allah. Then he said on the phone "Hello, Allah" as to tell Allah. I know this is incorrect but is this shirk?.
