The Great number of inhabitants

 

"And most of the people are not believers even though you take great care in this respect."
[Yusuf, 12: 103]

Abu Hurairah (radiAllahu anhu) narrated: "The Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, 'The first man to be called on the Day of Resurrection will be Adam, who will be shown his descendants. And it will be said to them, "This is your father, Adam." Adam will say, [responding to the call], "Labbayk wa sa'dayk." Then Allah will say [to Adam], "Bring forth from your descendants the delegations of the Fire." He will say, "O Lord, how many should I bring?" Allah will answer, "From every hundred, ninety-nine.'"

The companions said, 'O Messenger of Allah, if ninety-nine out of every one hundred of us are brought forth , then what will remain of us?' The Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) stated, 'My nation among other nations is like a white hair on a black bull.'"
