And when Abraham prayed: My Lord! Make this a region of security and bestow upon its people fruits, such of them as believe in Allah and the Last Day. He answered: And as for him who disbelieveth, I shall leave him in contentment for a while, then I shall compel him to the doom of Fire---a hapless journey’s end!

The Prophet Abraham (peace be upon Him) was told that the cruel and evildoers will be disappointed from the rank of Leadership. He (peace be upon Him) remembered this order and at the time of prayer for bestowing grains and fruit, prayed only for the Believers. The God Almighty commanded, “Religious Leadership is specified only for the Believers and the Obedient. However the disbelievers and Infidels will also be not forfeited from worldly lives.
