Muhammad and Qur'an Agree: "The Promised Land" Really Does Belong to the Jewish People

Reader comment on item: Trump's Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's Capital – What Does It Mean?

Submitted by Mike Ramirez, Dec 11, 2017 at 23:23

Apparently the Muslim world is not aware of their own Islamic writings that actually lend credence to the land of Israel being "Ordained" specifically for the Jewish people. Even Muhammad agreed with the Jewish teachings that pre-dated Islam by several hundred years and when Yahweh (not Allah) issued His Eternal Promise regarding The Land of Israel (The Promised Land).

Here is the reason: According to the decree of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad, and writings in the Qur'an, it is agreed that the Jewish people have a right to the land as ordained in God's "Land Grant" given several hundred years prior to Muhammad and Islamic theology. For Example: Israel has had great success in making the desert land flourish and be productive throughout the years. Since the Jewish people turned the once barren desert land into flourishing agricultural fields and gardens, the Jews should be entitled to Israel, according to Muhammad's decree, as follows:

"The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: If anyone brings barren land into cultivation, it belongs to him." ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 19, Number 3068: Narrated Urwah )

And; "I testify that the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) decided that the land is the land of Allah, and the servants are the servants of Allah. If anyone brings barren land into cultivation, he has more right to it. This tradition has been transmitted to us from the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) by those who transmitted the traditions about prayer from him." ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 19, Number 3070, Narrated Urwah )

And, this from Qur'an: 007.137: "And We made the people who were considered weak to inherit the eastern parts of the land and the western parts thereof which We have blessed. And the fair Word of your Lord was fulfilled for the Children of Israel, because of their endurance. And We destroyed completely all the great works and buildings which Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his people erected...

Also, from Qur'an 007.161: " And (remember) when it was said to them: "Dwell in this town (Jerusalem) and eat therefrom wherever you wish, and say, '(O Allâh) forgive our sins'; and enter the gate prostrate (bowing with humility). We shall forgive you your wrong-doings. We shall increase (the reward) for the good doers."

By the cited verses, it sure looks like Allah and Muhammad have ordained that the land belongs to ANYONE who succeeds in cultivating barren land of the desert. This would entitle Israel to retain the land that the Jewish people have developed into fruition. My point is that even Muslims have been instructed in their own writings that the land of Israel has been set aside for the Jewish people.
