An onislam reader asks the resident “scholar”Â for guidance re “Palestine” being the Jews’ “promised land.”Â The “scholar” obliges him thusly (the bolds areÂ in the original):
1.Â TheÂ Qur’anÂ addresses the children of Israel as the people who were descendant of Jacob, son of Isaac, and the grand son ofÂ Ibrahim. Israel is another name of Jacob. Jacob was a Muslim, theÂ Qur’anÂ says,Â (…and so did Jacob, ‘Oh my sons! Allah hath chosen the Faith for you; thenÂ dieÂ not except in the Faith of Islam.’ Were ye witnesses when death appeared before Jacob? Behold, he said to his sons: ‘What will ye worship after me?’ They said: ‘WeÂ shall worship Thy god and the god of thy fathers, of Abraham,Â Isma’ilÂ and Isaac, the one (True) God: To Him we bow (in Islam).’)Â Â (Al-BaqarahÂ 2:132-33)2.Â Allah has never chosen any people because of any racial or ethnical entity but he chose certain people because of Islam.3.Â Children of Israel, when they followed Islam, they were the best nation; they were Muslims but others wereÂ MushriksÂ orÂ Kafirs.4.Â The Holy Land is blessed because of being the place of Allah’s Messengers and His Message. Descendants of Jacob, amongÂ whomÂ are Moses, David, Solomon and `IsaÂ (Jesus) who are holy prophets, so they can fit the Holy Land.5.Â TheÂ Qur’anÂ addressed earlier the followers of Moses to liberate the Holy Land, they were afraid to get into the Holy Land and they made an excuse for not restoring that land because they believed that the Canaanites are too strong to defeat. They mocked Moses and rebelled hisÂ request,Â the story is detailed inÂ suratal-Ma’idah, 21-26.6.Â The Holy Land is always the land assigned for the servants of Allah who surrender everything to him.7.Â The occupation of the Holy Land is due to Muslims’ lapsing in weakness and deviating from Allah’s teachings. The occupation of the Jews to the Holy Land is something casual. The Holy Land is waiting for the time when there will be holy people who strictly abide by Allah’s teachings to deserve it.
“Something casual” my dainty, dimpledÂ tuches, imam.
