Since some Muslim communities are unaware of the verses of the Qur’an and are exceedingly ignorant on the subject of Islam, they strive to remove the Jews from the Holy Land or to wipe the state of Israel off the map. They are unaware that in doing this they are rebelling against the Qur’an.
According to the Qur’an, the Jews have the right to live in the Holy Land. Verses on the subject read:
Remember when Moses said to his people, “My people! Remember God’s blessing to you when He appointed prophets among you and appointed kings for you, and gave you what He had not given to anyone else in all the worlds! My people! Enter the Holy Land which God has ordained for you. Do not turn back in your tracks and so become transformed into losers.” (Surat al-Ma’ida, 20-21)
We said to the tribe of Israel after that, “Inhabit the land and, when the promise of the hereafter comes, We will produce you as a motley crowd.” (Surat al-Isra’, 104)
As clearly shown in the verses of the Qur’an, both the Torah and the Qur’an state that Jews must exist in the Holy Land. Indeed it is a good thing for there to be Jews in the Holy Land, and that is a source of joy for true Muslims. It is an exceedingly fine thing to see a promise made by God 3,000 years ago coming true and witnessing what was foretold by the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) and the Prophet Moses (pbuh). God revealed that, “The Jews will be in those lands” thousands of years ago, and we can see that miracle manifested now. This is a wonderful state of affairs to be observed with fervor and joy.
It is of great importance to state that God imposes one essential condition on sincere believers, both in the Qur’an and the Torah – “Peace.” There will be Jews in the Holy Land; there will also be Muslims and Christians there, and they will altogether ensure that love and peace prevail across the region. They will live in brotherhood. There is plenty of room for all. Nobody will be forced from his home or driven away. That will not happen. God always wants peace for all of us.
In order for there to be peace, hunger for land and enmities need to come to an end, and the fanatical mindset has to be eliminated. The true faiths, religious moral values, the believers and the Qur’an are all essential to that end. Conflicts based on a desire for land or ideology always grow and assume the most terrible dimensions. What can do away with all this is proper education in the true understanding of faith using the Qur’an as its point of reference. This education can eliminate all these errors and absorb all enmities. Once people’s mindset has changed, there will be no grounds for hostility or war and the only way to achieve that change in mindset is through education.
