The phrase, turn them out from where they have turned you out, in Quran 2:191, Moshin Khan translation has been misinterpreted by Jihadists as turning all countries out in order to restore Islamic state since they have turned the Muslims out from the Muslim state.in many years ago. Discuss.

Their interpretation is entirely wrong and it goes against the teaching in the book of Hadith 44:675. The following is the extracted Hadith verse for your mediation:

Book #44, Hadith #675-Sahih Bukhari:

Narated Jabir bin 'Abudllah! The Prophet established the right of Shu'fa (i.e. Pre-emption) in Joint properties; but when the land is divided and the ways are demarcated, then there is no pre-emption.

The phrase, the land is divided and the ways are demarcated, as mentioned here implies the division of lands and the lands have gone. As the phrase, the land is divided and the ways are demarcated then there is no pre-emption, is mentioned above, it implies that once the Muslim state has been divided and has gone, Muslims would not have any right of pre-emption over the lands. As Muslims would not have any right of pre-emption over Muslim state that has been gone for many years ago, how could jihadists, i.e. ISIS, use Quran 2:191 to support their evil act to conquer all the nations in order to restore Islamic state?

The same is mentioned in Book #44, Hadith #676-Sahih Bukhari below:

Narated Jabir bin 'Abdullah: The Prophet said, 'The right of pre-emption is valid in every joint property, but when the land is divided and the way is demarcated, then there is no right of pre-emption.
