Prophet Abraham (as) is considered to be the ‘father’ of all revealed religions, i.e. Judaism, Christianity and Islam. From Isaac came Judaism and Christianity and from Ishmael came Islam. It is the belief of the Jews that God gave them a large portion of land as a ‘gift’ and it is their ‘divine right’ to inherit this land. The Bible confirms this belief of theirs in the following verse:
‘and the Lord appeared unto Abraham and said: unto thy seed will I give this land’ (Gen 12:7)
In the Bible you will find that Sarah had a son, i.e. Isaac, and did not want her ‘step son’, i.e. Ishmael, to be the inheritor along with her son Isaac, of the land promised to the Jews, so she ordered Abraham to take Ishmael and his mother Hajar somewhere else; out of her place and sight. She said:
‘Cast out this bondswoman and her son; for the son of the bondswoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac’. (Gen 21:10)
The extent of the land that the Jews believe is theirs is wherever Abraham traversed. And even today they are working silently to acquire this land that is ‘promised to them’ that they are calling Greater Israel.
Even at the time of Prophet Muhammad (saw) the Jews were the ones that gave him the most trying time, in both Makkah and Madinah. And they retaliated under the reign of Hazrat Uthman (ra) because he couldn’t properly manger the Islamic empire.
Greater Israel was actually predicted by Prophet (saw) and the fitnah they will carry with them will reach the Holy city of Makkah;
Hadhrat Anas (ra) says that Rasulullah said: ‘Dajjal will come and finally reach the outskirts of Madinah’
Ibn Abbas (ra) narrated that the Prophet (saw) said; it is as if I can see him now: he is black and his legs are widely spaced. He will destroy the Ka'ba stone by stone.’ (Ahmad)
Why talk about this? One method that the Jews will adopt to stay in control is to make life difficult for others. All the divisions and diversions that exist in the world today are caused by the hands of the Jews.
Be careful of how you retaliate because one little thing you do can open up the avenue for your destruction. The enemies of Islam will look to find ways of how they can create disharmony. Someone just has to irritate you a bit and it can lead to the end of years of effort and hard work. It will become so overbearing that a ‘good person will take his sheep and flee to the mountains’ in search of peace and tranquillity.
Spirituality demands that you show patience. The Jews demonstrated no patience, humility nor submission. Remember while we are sleeping they are working so we need to remain steadfast and seek protection with our Lord and try not to get caught up in their web of destruction and manipulation.
Prophet Muhammad (saw) taught us to pray as follows;
Duah for the protection from four trials:
“Allahumma inee a‘oodhu bika min ‘adhaabi-l-Qabr,wa min ‘adhaabi-jahannam,wa min fitnatil-mahyaa wal-mamaat,wa min sharri fitnatil-maseeh as-dajjaal”
O Allah! I seek refuge with you from the punishment in the grave and from the punishment in the Hell fire, and from the trials of life and death, and the evil of the trial of Al-Masih Ad-dajjal”
