Can all people be Muslims?

Hello there, I wonder if it's possible for all people to be Muslims, or does the contradict the fact that the majority of people are infidels according to the holy Quran?
As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,
Great question. In principle and in theory, everyone should be and could be a Muslim:
However, Allah Almighty also promised that He will fill Hell with the infidels:
[007:018] He said: Get out of this (state), despised, driven away; whoever of them will follow you, I will certainly fill hell with you all.
[011:119] Except those on whom your Lord has mercy; and for this did He create them; and the word of your Lord is fulfilled: Certainly I will fill hell with the jinn and the men, all together.
[032:013] And if We had pleased We would certainly have given to every soul its guidance, but the word (which had gone forth) from Me was just: I will certainly fill hell with the jinn and men together.
[038:085] That I will most certainly fill hell with you and with those among them who follow you, all.
This brings the question are we pre-destined to either Hell or Heaven? Or do we surely have full control over our Wills? This reminds me of the Bible's story of king David, and how GOD Almighty promised him that He will turn his wives into prostitutes as a punishment for him (David):
I mean did these women have control over being turned by GOD Almighty into prostitutes? Did they have any power to reverse it?
While Islam declares that our destiny is not pre-determined, but Allah Almighty also, at the same time, Has full control over everything, so does Islam also declare. This is one of the topics that are pretty much impossible to get to the bottom of:
Allah Almighty is the GOD and Controller of everything, akhi. I personally limit my thoughts to this. I do not go beyond this. I do not dwell into questions like how can GOD Almighty not have a beginning, for example. Or do we have control over our destinies? I leave it to Allah Almighty.
I have zero knowledge of where and how I existed before my mother got pregnant with me. So the earthly and finite logic of the atheists doesn't work with GOD Almighty. Indeed, as Allah Almighty told us:
"They ask thee concerning the Spirit (of inspiration). Say: "The Spirit (cometh) by command of my Lord: of knowledge it is only a little that is communicated to you, (O men!)" (The Noble Quran, 17:85)"
I hope this helps, Insha'Allah.
But the Quran says that و ما اكثر الناس و لو حرصت بمؤمنين so this means that all people can't be Muslims, or what?
مؤمنين means Believers, not Muslims. A Believer is higher than a Muslim:
[049:014] The Arabs said, "We are Mu'mens (believers)." Say, "You have not believed; what you should say is, `We are Muslims (submitters),' until belief is established in your hearts." If you obey GOD and His messenger, He will not put any of your works to waste. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.
Like I said brother, in theory and principle, everyone is expected and can be a Muslim. But again, this is a topic that is well beyond our earthly logic as I explained above.
I hope this helps, Insha'Allah.
Ask me any question section.
Allah, Islam, Quran, Muhammad questions and answers.
What is the place of Jews, Christians and non-Muslims in Islam.
How does a Muslim get to Heaven, saved, reach a state of perfect harmony with God?
I liked your concept of God in Islam and that man can directly have fellowship with God. But how does God stand the sin in man ? How does God see the sin between man and man?
What is the Wisdom of Islam?
The Mercy of Allah Almighty on Mankind, and our age of 40 wisdom in Islam.
Is our destiny pre-determined by GOD? Does GOD choose who is evil and who is good? How come GOD didn't make all of us good if He is the "Most Merciful" and "Most Just"?
The authors of the New Testament had conflicts (hostility) with each others.
The Jews' and Christians' scribes changed and
Proven with images, text and

bible and books! See

Who was the sacrificed son? Isaac or Ishmael? Even the altered Bible thoroughly supports that it was Ishmael  in many passages. And in Islam there is no "El" (God) in names as in Ishmael or Gabriel in Hebrew? Is the GOD of Islam different? Allah Almighty allowed for His Holy Name to be shortened (as "El" in Ishmael, and Lillah for Li-Allah in the Quran, as in Alhamdulillah) in both Islam and Judaism .
Made to be prostitutes by GOD: In 2 Samuel 12:7-12, King David's wives were turned into ***** prostitutes by GOD Almighty  as a punishment for David's sins with Bathsheba. This means that GOD Almighty can create custom Laws for punishment even if they fully contradict GOD Almighty's Moral Code on morality and chastity. Also, seduction and RAPING of virgins isn't a physically punishable crime in the Bible. See Deuteronomy 22:25-29, Exodus 22:16-17.
