The meaning of the hadeeth which says that the sins of the Muslims will be placed on the kuffaar of the People of the Book

The meaning of the hadeeth which says that the sins of the Muslims will be placed on the kuffaar of the People of the Book
We would like you to please explain for us the hadeeth qudsi that follows (some say that how can this be since there is injustive involved-wa 'iyaadhu billaah): 

In a book entitled 110 Hadith Qudsi, translated by Syed Masood-ul-Hasan, Revision and Commentaries by Ibrahim M. Kunna, published by Darussalam, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 1996/1417H, appears a Qudsi Hadith No. 8 on page 19/20.

No. 8:    Narrated Abu Musa (r.a.): Allah's Messenger (s.a.s.) said: 

On the Day of Resurrection, my Ummah (nation) will be gathered into three groups, one sort will enter Paradise without rendering an account (of their deeds). Another sort will be reckoned on easy account and admitted into Paradise. Yet another sort will come bearing on their backs heaps of sins like great mountains. Allah will ask the angels though He knows best about them: Who are these people? They will reply: They are humble slaves of yours. He will say: Unload the sins from them and put the same over the Jews and Christians; then let the humble slaves get into Paradise by virtue of My Mercy. (This Hadith is sound and mentioned in Mustadrak of Hakim). 

Please help us ya shaykh to clarify the meaning of this hadeeth. We are doing as Allaah commanded us (meaning):ask those of knowledge if you do not know


Praise be to Allaah. 

This hadeeth is to be found
in Saheeh Muslim (2767),
narrated from Abu Moosa (may Allaah be pleased with him) from the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him), who said: “On the Day of Resurrection, some of the Muslims
will come with sins like mountains, but Allaah will forgive them and
will put them (the sins) onto the Jews and Christians.” So this hadeeth
is saheeh. 

With regard to its meaning, al-Nawawi
said in his commentary: “The meaning of this hadeeth is the same as
the hadeeth narrated by Abu Hurayrah: “For each person there is a place
in Paradise and a place in Hell.” When the believer enters Paradise,
his place in Hell is taken over by the kaafir because he deserves that
because of his kufr. The meaning of the phrase “your ransom from the
Fire” is that you could have entered Hell, but this is your ransom because
Allaah has decreed a certain number to fill it; when the kuffaar enter
Hell because of their kufr and sins, this is like a ransom for the Muslims.
With regard to the report, “On the Day of Resurrection, some of the
Muslims will come with sins” – Allaah will forgive the Muslims these
sins and will absolve them of them, and He will put the like of those
sins onto the Jews and Christians because of their kufr and sins. So
they will enter Hell because of their own actions, not because of the
sins of the Muslims. This report has to be interpreted in this manner,
because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

no bearer of burdens shall bear another’s burden” [Faatir 35:18]  

It may be that the meaning
is: sins which the kuffaar innovated and initiated, because whoever
starts a bad thing will bear a burden of sin like that of each person
who does that thing.

Following note from Muslim Quran online Blog 

The first lesson to be learned by all Muslims is the importance of the Reading Quran Online. All Muslim should learn holy Quran online  is the Book of Allah All mighty. Every word which the quran reciter recites or he read quran is the word of Allah it is mentioned in Quran in Arabic that it is the guidance which has come from Allah. That is why we as Muslim say it is the Holy Book. We should  learn quran and focus on quran teaching thought by the quran tutor to the students and the tutor should arrange the kids quran lessons in such an easy manner so they can understand it easily and make there quran recitation online as beautiful as he could and teach them that the words of Koran were sent by Allah to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) through the angel Jibraeel. And further more elaborate wile reading quran with teaching them the quran tafseer and the tajweed quran with its rules let then do quran memorization in the proper manner We as Muslim should respect the teachings of Quran and in every other manner when we are reading it or when we listen to Quran  wake up Muslims and spread the word of Islam to
