In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Return of the Jewish in the Quraan
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

Return of the Jewish in the promised land of Israel before the Doomsday (end time) is in the Quraan, (Ref: 005:020-026, 017:100-104), and NO Muslim is a Muslim if he/she rejects any single verse of the Quraan. You cannot establish DEEN without entering into Quraanic Islaam Completely (100%). You have seen many Muslim countries are falling behind and are being wiped out mainly due to going far away from the Quraan.

Fundamentalist Muslims program to use Islaam as an instrument for political warfare against Jewish finds a major obstacle in the Quraan itself. Both the Bible and the Quraan state quite clearly that the right of the Israelites to the Land of Israel does not depend on conquest and colonization. This right flows from the will of almighty Allah Himself.

Both the Jewish and Islaamic Scriptures teach that Allah, through His chosen servant Moses, decided to free the offspring of Jacob from slavery in Egypt and to constitute them as heirs of the Promised Land. Whoever claims that Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel is something new and rooted in human politics denies divine revelation and divine prophecy as explicitly expressed in our Holy Books (the Bible and the Quraan).

The Quraan relates the words by which Moses ordered the Israelites to conquer the Land:

"And [remember] when Moses said to his people: 'O my people, call in remembrance the favour of Allah unto you, when he produced prophets among you, made you kings, and gave to you what He had not given to any other among the peoples. O my people, enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously, for then will you be overthrown, to your own ruin", (Al_Quraan_005:020-021).

Moreover - and those who try to use Islaam as a weapon against Israel always conveniently ignore this point - the Holy Quraan explicitly refers to the return of the Jewish to the Land of Israel before the Last Judgment - where it says: "And thereafter We [Allah] said to the Children of Israel: 'Dwell securely in the Promised Land. And when the last warning will come to pass, we will gather you together in a mingled crowd", (Al_Quraan_017:104).

Therefore, from an Islaamic point of view, there is NO fundamental reason which prohibits Muslims from recognizing Israel as a friendly State:

"And even if you bring to those who have been given the Book every sign they would not follow your Qiblah, nor can you be a follower of their Qiblah, neither are they the followers of each other's Qiblah, and if you follow their desires after the knowledge that has come to you, then you shall most surely be among the unjust", (Al_Quraan_002:145).

All Quraanic commentators explain that "our Qiblah" [direction of prayer for Muslims] is clearly the Ka'bah of Mecca, while "their Qiblah" [direction of prayer for Jewish] refers to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Muslim  States  must  recognise  the  JEWISH  STATE OF ISRAEL  unconditionally.  Muslims around the world must come out of their dream and come to real world of Allah by accepting this fact from the Quraan and recognize the Jewish State of Israel unconditionally, since Delay in accepting the truth is like denial of the commandments of the Quraan. Remember: Jewish are cousin brothers of Muslims and followers of Prophet Ibrahim too. It is a critical and heart breaking issue but Muslims must re-think in the light of the Quraan and see why they are failing again and again. Muslims cannot fight against the will of Allah, otherwise they will be totally destroyed as you can see they are being destroyed again and again since not taking guidance from the Quraan. You have seen Muslims states are falling down one after another and are being wiped out like Native People in the west. Let us study Palestine dispute and why Muslim were totally failed to protect them and this will help us change our directions according to the Quraan.

Quraanic Solution to Palestine Dispute:

When a person gets sick he/she needs right treatments and on right time. Sometime just taking rest may help while other time he/she need home remedy and many times people need strong medications. BUT sometime they need to make tough decision to go for Surgery, Radiation Treatment, Chemotherapy Treatment, Stem Cells Treatment or Bone Marrow Transplant Treatment etc., as the only option to save their lives. Remember: saving a live is like saving the Whole World without any discrimination, (Ref. Al_Quraan_005.032).

In case of Palestine Dispute, we have tried our way for several decades and totally failed to succeed for independent Palestine. We need to take lessons from the Quraan, and look at the similar examples, what people of the old time did for their survivals including Prophets and Messengers. It is very tough heart breaking decision and tears are in my eyes but perhaps there is no other solution other than truly reflect on the Quraan. Only believing on the Quraan without practice is like NOT believing on the Quraan at all (NO Verbal Islaam, since Islaam is Practical Deen).

When Abraha came to destroy Kabaa, Allah destroyed them through small birds (Abaabil), and Allah knows how to protect his house when no one has enough power to protect it from its destruction/demolition. When Prophet Muhammad’s (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) life got in danger in Makkah al-Mukarramah, he had to migrate to al-Madinah al-Munawwarah by taking one way ticket and he never ever thought to go back. Here lessons we get is no land is more precious and more important than Kabaa (the first worshipping house of Allah) and even when life gets in danger one has to migrate as soon as possible. In simple terms “No Fighting for Lands”.

NO Help except to Migrate from Non-Muslim Countries, or Charity or Education. Islaam will not go for Trial, Islaam is for the Establishment of Peace not for Fighting for Lands in Non-Muslim Countries, we will not put 99.99% of Muslims for trial by helping 0.01%, who don’t want to obey Allah by peacefully migrating from Non-Muslim Countries to Muslim Countries, only if they don’t allow them to worship or put them in hardships. Now everywhere in the world Islaam is on Trial just because of the 0.01% Muslims, who are not obeying Allah by peacefully migrating.

Surely those who believed and migrated (fled their homes) and struggled hard in Allah's way with their property and their souls, and those who gave shelter and helped-- these are guardians of each other; and (as for) those who believed and did not migrate, not yours is their guardianship until they migrate; and if they seek aid from you in the matter of religion, aid is incumbent on you except against a people between whom and you there is a treaty, and Allah sees what you do. And (as for) those who disbelieve, some of them are the guardians of others; if you will not do it, there will be in the land persecution and great mischief, (Al_Quraan_008.072-073).

We need to give immigrations to all those Palestine Muslims, if they are not allowed to worship and having hardship:

Surely (as for) those whom the angels cause to die while they are unjust to their souls, they shall say: In what state were you? They shall say: We were weak in the earth. They shall say: Was not Allah's earth spacious, so that you should have migrated therein? So these it is whose abode is hell, and it is an evil resort, (Al_Quraan_004.097).

And how many a living creature that does not carry its sustenance: Allah sustains it and yourselves; and He is the Hearing, the Knowing, (Al_Quraan_029.060)?

If Disbelievers stops you from offering Prayers then migrate, Allah’s earth is spacious. Do not worry about sustenance. Now let us see how Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) implemented this. As you know Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) migrated from Makkah al-Mukarramah ( مكة المكرمة) to al-Madinah al-Munawwarah by taking one way ticket and NEVER ever thought to return. This is the Great secret of migration, so Allah has given such a great reward by turning Makkah al-Mukarramah ( مكة المكرمة) into the center place for all Muslims. In brief, there is NO fighting for the LAND.

If you DIFFER in anything (Faith, Salaat, Siyaam, Zakaat, etc.) amongst yourself, then REFER to Allah and his Messenger, if you really believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for determinations, (Al_Quraan_004.059). Those who dispute & divide into sects are not Muslim, (Ref: Al_Quraan_006:159, 008.046).

Non-Practicing Muslims are like ASS / Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).
None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah but those who disbelieve ..., (Ref: Al_Quraan_040.004).
Islaam cannot succeed on the way of Kufr (going against fundamental teaching of the Quraan).

Conclusion: I conclude that, as no one denies Muslims complete sovereignty over Mecca, from an Islamic point of view - despite opposing, groundless claims - there is no reason for Muslims to deny the State of Israel - which is a JEWISH state - complete sovereignty over Jerusalem.
