Explanation on the Hadith regarding the number of people to enter Jahannam

Question

Could you please explain this Hadith?

As far as I understood, 999 out of 1000 people will end up in Jahannam, If you consider over 1 billion Muslims in the world today, would most of them enter Jahannam?

 

Answer

The Hadith further explains that from every 1000 destined for Jahannam only one will be from this Ummah. The rest will be from Gog and Magog.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3348-6530 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 222)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
