The Des­tiny Of Israel : Review Of Jerusalem in the Qur’an”

The Destiny Of Israel: Review Of "Jerusalem in the Qur'an" 1

We must real­ize that some­thing hor­ri­ble is in store for the world in which starv­ing half a mil­lion chil­dren to death is a valid price but call­ing Israel an ille­git­i­mate and racist state has become the most seri­ous crime. Many would agree with the state­ment that it is high­ly unlike­ly that the Israeli oppres­sion and unac­count­abil­i­ty can con­tin­ue for anoth­er 50 years before it faces the hor­ri­ble con­se­quences. But many would be sur­prised to know that it is mat­ter of a few more years before Israel over­takes the US as a Rul­ing State, just as the US replaced Eng­land as a Rul­ing State at the end of World War I.

Those of us who find this obser­va­tion strange may not real­ize that we are pass­ing through very strange times. Indi­ca­tions of the com­ing times are right before our eyes, for exam­ple in find­ing one set of peo­ple not allowed to sim­ply cov­er their head for it under­mines sec­u­lar val­ues. Where­as anoth­er peo­ple are free to occu­py land, sub­ju­gate native peo­ple, indis­crim­i­nate kill and expel those who do not share the same race, and engage in eth­nic cleans­ing on the grounds of their dis­tort­ed scriptures.

Anoth­er indi­ca­tion is help­less­ness of the whole world before the Israeli aggres­sion, defi­ance, WMD and state ter­ror­ism. The ques­tion aris­es : Why has Israel been grant­ed this spe­cial sta­tus and spe­cial sup­port despite the world look­ing at its unde­ni­able crimes with wide open eyes ? Why oth­er coun­tries are pun­ished with decades of geno­ci­dal sanc­tions, wars and occu­pa­tions for far minor crimes than the Israeli government ?

One can find answer to these and many sim­i­lar ques­tions in Jerusalem in the Quran“Imran N. Hosein, Jerusalem in the Qur’an, The Oth­er Press, Kuala Lumpur, 2002 by Imran N. Hosein. It is an amaz­ing book, explain­ing not only the des­tiny of Jerusalem but also of Jews and Mus­lims and the rest of the world in an extreme­ly broad per­spec­tive. We fail to find answers to such ques­tions because we are lost in the dis­tort­ed real­i­ties that revolve around ongo­ing events alone.

Jerusalem in the Qur’an” shows us the future in a broad­er his­tor­i­cal, reli­gious per­spec­tive. The author proves his bold con­clu­sions, such as that Israel is close to replac­ing the US as a Rul­ing State, in a math­e­mat­i­cal way. This book also brings for­ward many hid­den aspects of the Qur?an that answers ques­tions lurk­ing in the minds of many Amer­i­cans who tru­ly love their coun­try and many Mus­lims who are look­ing but at just part of the Divine knowledge.

Extract­ing argu­ment from the Qur’an and say­ings of Prophet Muham­mad (P), the author proves that it is just a mat­ter of time before the US taste the fruits of the Amer­i­can-Israeli obses­sion with the Holy Land. It is exact­ly same way in which Eng­land at its peak was strange­ly obsessed with the Holy Land. The British peo­ple were them­selves inca­pable of explain­ing this strange obses­sion”, argues the author.

Jerusalem in the Qur’an” explains the roots and con­se­quences of this strange Euro-Amer­i­can obses­sion with the Holy Land. Using ref­er­ences from the Qur?an about behav­ior of the Jews, des­tiny of Jerusalem, and relat­ed proph­e­sies, the author clear­ly shows how Israel — armed with enough WMD and sup­port­ed by Euro-Jew­ish financiers and bankers — has it with­in its pow­er to assume finan­cial con­trol of the world through the sim­ple maneu­ver of caus­ing the col­lapse of the US dol­lar. When the US dol­lar goes down it would bring down the entire world of paper mon­ey with it. This may be planned to syn­chro­nize with a spec­tac­u­lar Euro-Israeli dis­play of mil­i­tary pow­er in an attack on the Pales­tini­ans as well as neigh­bor­ing Arab States.”

The author goes on : Israel will then suc­cess­ful­ly defy the rest of the world in hold­ing on to the fruits of its war and, in so doing, estab­lish itself as the rul­ing pow­er in the world. When that occurs it would most cer­tain­ly appear to the Israeli-Jews (i.e., Bani Isra’il) that they would be expe­ri­enc­ing the return of the gold­en age, i.e., the age when Solomon’s Israel ruled the world.”

Author’s Open Chal­lenge to All

The sto­ry of the rise and fall of Jews and Mus­lims and the com­ing events is told in such an inter­est­ing and log­i­cal man­ner that one can­not help but sit and fin­ish the whole book in a sin­gle go. Inter­est­ing­ly, the book throws an open chal­lenge to both Mus­lims and non-Mus­lims. The chal­lenge to Mus­lims is to declare either that the Qur?an does not explain the return of the Jews to the Holy Land and the restora­tion of the State of Israel, or that there is a dif­fer­ent expla­na­tion oth­er than the one giv­en in this book.”

To non-Mus­lims the chal­lenge is that if they declare that they pos­sess the Truth,” they should use that Truth to explain this sub­ject.” That appears to be the great­est impor­tance of this book. It val­i­dates the Islam­ic claim to the Truth ! Let us take an exam­ple from the book.

Accord­ing to the author, the strangest, most mys­te­ri­ous and most inex­plic­a­ble event ever to have occurred in the reli­gious his­to­ry of mankind is the return of the Jews to the Holy Land to reclaim it as their own some 2000 years after they had been expelled by Allah.

At the very heart of the Qur’an­ic view in this regard is the dec­la­ra­tion that when the final count-down in the Last Age arrives Jews would be gath­ered from the Dias­po­ra in which they were bro­ken up and dis­persed, and to which they had been con­signed, and would be brought back to the Holy Land as a min­gled crowd“Qur’an, 17:104. That Divine promise has already been fulfilled.

But before Bani Isra’ils final divine pun­ish­ment takes place, there is great dra­ma which is yet to unfold in the Holy Land and, indeed, in the world — such as the estab­lish­ment of the greater Israel, which the author calls the Rul­ing State. The trans­fer of pow­er from the US, in author’s view, has already begun with the Sep­tem­ber 11 inci­dent and US inva­sions of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Fur­ther­more, Mus­lims have pre­cise infor­ma­tion of the moment in time when Jesus (alay­hi salaam), the Mes­si­ah, will return” and when the Zion­ist-Jews will final­ly reach the supreme moment in their over-all strat­e­gy to get the Arabs to sub­mit to Jew­ish rule in the Holy Land”, it will be when the water in the Sea in Galilee has almost dried up, or has dried up?That sub­mis­sion would imply their wor­ship of the False Mes­si­ah rather than the wor­ship of Allah Most High. They would be required to sub­mit to Israel in order to get water from the desalin­iza­tion plants that Israel would build. The Arabs would be too poor to be able to afford to buy water.”

The book gives sub­stan­tial ref­er­ences from the Qur’an and say­ings of the Prophet Muham­mad to prove this point along with the sci­en­tif­ic reports which show that water in the Sea in Galilee is real­ly dry­ing up faster than expect­ed. Fur­ther­more, the author has made a com­mend­able effort to present in the sim­ple pos­si­ble lan­guage the link between anti-Christ and Riba and between Gog and Magog in the light of Prophet Muhammad?s (P) sayings.

It makes the book a great effort in the sense that it gath­ered scat­tered and often dis­re­gard­ed infor­ma­tion for focus­ing on a spe­cif­ic sub­ject with full force. It is high­ly unlike­ly that any­one who reads this book would have any doubt about the author?s clar­i­fi­ca­tion of some very com­plex issues such as that of anti-Christ and what is in store for the world.

Zion­ists’ Reality 

There is much talk about hid­den pow­er of the Zion­ists but no one has so far explained the his­tor­i­cal and reli­gious aspect of their actions and respec­tive impli­ca­tion as Imran N. Hosein has done through an impar­tial analy­sis of all rel­e­vant reli­gious and his­tor­i­cal sources.

Even most of the Mus­lims have start­ed mak­ing con­ces­sions to the Israeli claims that it has Bib­li­cal claims to the Holy Land. The author argues that the so-called defend­ers of Israel are the Zion­ists who have essen­tial­ly aban­doned the eth­i­cal heart of the reli­gion of Abra­ham (sal­lalahu alai­hi wa sal­lam).” The author effec­tive­ly proves that the Zion­ists amend­ed Torah and declared many per­mis­si­ble as pro­hib­it­ed and vice ver­sa. And final­ly they have imposed an impos­tor Israel” instead of real Israel”.

The author asks whether the Zion­ists right to inher­it the Holy Land is uncon­di­tion­al. Would it still be valid if they estab­lish a sec­u­lar state and their prog­e­ny were to aban­don the reli­gion of Abra­ham and the laws of Allah”? We should note that the God of Abra­ham (alai­hi al-salaam) pro­hib­it­ed the bor­row­ing and lend­ing of mon­ey on inter­est (Riba).Thou shalt not lend on inter­est to thy broth­er (Jew); whether it be lend­ing mon­ey on inter­est, or lend­ing com­modi­ties on inter­est (because com­modi­ties were some­times used as mon­ey) or lend­ing on inter­est any­thing which is lent on inter­est (i.e., any­thing which func­tions as mon­ey). Unto a stranger (i.e., one who is not a Jew) you may lend on inter­est.…” (Deuteron­o­my, 23:19 – 20)

Their crimes also includ­ed : This is why the wis­dom of God said : I will send them Prophets and Mes­sen­gers. Some they will kill and some they will per­se­cute. It was that the blood of all the Prophets shed from the foun­da­tion of the world might be charged upon this gen­er­a­tion (of Jews), from the blood of Abel down to the blood of Zakari­ah, who was slain between the altar and the House of God — yes, I tell you, it will all be charged upon this gen­er­a­tion…” (Luke, 11:49 – 51) The Jews changed the Torah to legal­ize the lend­ing of mon­ey on inter­est to those who were not Jews. Not only is Riba ille­gal in the Holy Land today, but so are also many oth­er things that were pro­hib­it­ed by Allah, Most High.”

Before and after the for­ma­tion of the State of Israel, Zion­ists have been engaged in injus­tice, oppres­sion, tyran­ny and repres­sion, while Abra­ham was clear­ly told that Allah’s covenant of promise will not reach those of Abraham?s off­spring who com­mit acts of Dhu­lum (i.e., injus­tice, oppres­sion, tyran­ny, repres­sion, sup­pres­sion)Qur’an, 2:124.

This is exact­ly how the Zion­ist-sec­u­lar State of Israel is estab­lished and it con­tin­ues to dis­play the same behav­iour. And accord­ing to the Qur’an : And We declared in the Zabur (i.e., the Psalms) which fol­lowed (Our dec­la­ra­tion in) the Zikr (i.e., the Torah) that it is (only) those ser­vants of Mine who are right­eous in their con­duct who would inher­it the (Holy) Land.” (Al-Qur?an, 21:105). The author thus proves that the Qur’an not only reaf­firmed ?right­eous­ness ? as the con­di­tion for such inher­i­tance (Surah al-Anbiya, 21:105), but went on to direct atten­tion to the his­tor­i­cal evi­dence that vio­la­tion of that con­di­tion always result­ed in Divine expul­sion from the (Holy) Land.

The book gives numer­ous exam­ples from the Israeli press to show that it is a god­less and oppres­sive sys­tem which has noth­ing to do with the re-estab­lish­ment of ancient Israel and the law of Abra­ham. One of the exam­ples from the horse’s mouth is an edi­to­r­i­al in the Jerusalem Post which has this to say : For too many Israelis, Jew­ish­ness has become an archa­ic, prim­i­tive, and irrel­e­vant sys­tem that com­petes for pow­er and fund­ing, and even a source of embar­rass­ment for an intel­lec­tu­al­ly-ori­ent­ed mod­ern soci­ety.“Jerusalem Post, Sep­tem­ber 122000

Zion­ist Strategy

The author dis­tin­guish­es between the key roles of the Israelite or Sephardic Jews (descen­dents of Prophet Isaac), and the Jews of Euro­pean ori­gin. It is the Zion­ists from Europe who dis­tort­ed scrip­tures from the Torah and Bible to jus­ti­fy their crimes and to moti­vate the Jews to estab­lish a State of Israel that extends from the Nile to the Euphrates with Jerusalem as its capital.

Accord­ing to the author, the Zion­ists exploit­ed every sin­gle lie that was put into the Bible by embell­ish­ing those lies with a moun­tain of more lies.” They worked with the cor­rupt rul­ing Arab elites to make their client states rec­og­nize Israel and then aban­don them at an appro­pri­ate time. This Jew­ish-Arab (élite) strat­e­gy has today reached an advanced stage of implementation.…Indeed the strat­e­gy of aban­don­ing that Arab élite has already begun.”

Here the author also proves that well accord­ing to the prayers of Prophet Muham­mad (P) the strat­e­gy did not work out in Syr­ia and Yemen.Nar­rat­ed by Ibn Umar : The Prophet (sal­lalahu ?alay­hi wa sal­lam) said : O Allah ! Bestow Your Bless­ings on our Sham (Syr­ia) and our Yemen. Peo­ple said : Our Najd (Najd is that part of Sau­di Ara­bia from which the Sau­di rulers have orig­i­nat­ed). The Prophet again said : O Allah ! Bestow Your Bless­ings on our Sham and Yemen. They said again : Our Najd as well. On that the Prophet said : There will appear earth­quakes and afflic­tions, and from there (i.e., Najd) will come out the side of the head of Satan.” (Sahih Bukhari)

The book is actu­al­ly part­ly writ­ten in response to the Zion­ists lies pro­mot­ed by spokesper­sons such as Daniel Pipes who, in his July 21, 2000 arti­cle in LA Times, attempt­ed to dis­miss any Islam­ic claim to Jerusalem by declar­ing of Jerusalem, among oth­er things, that : It is not once men­tioned in the Qur’an or in the litur­gy”. The way Imran N. Hosein col­lect­ed dif­fer­ent pieces of his­to­ry and linked them like beads through the mes­sage of the Qur?an with respect to Jerusalem is enough to leave Pipes speechless.

The rea­son Zion­ists ignore even those por­tions of the Qur’an which men­tion that Holy Land was giv­en to JewsQur’an 5:24 – 6 ; Again, it amazes me that Jew­ish and Zion­ist schol­ar­ship should so stu­dious­ly have avoid­ed quot­ing these plain state­ments in which the Qur’an declared that the Holy Land was giv­en to the Jews (5:24 – 6 ; 17:103 – 104 and 7:137) is because the Qur’an also offers an expla­na­tion for that strange behav­ior. The expla­na­tion resides in their reluc­tance to reveal the cor­rup­tion of the divine con­di­tions in the Torah which Allah Most High had ordained for inher­i­tance of the Holy Land. The fraud in the rewrit­ten Torah is exposed in the Qur’an”

So the Zion­ist dream of lib­er­at­ing the Holy Land from Gen­tiles and restor­ing the State of Israel in that Holy Land is well on the way to real­iza­tion. The author pre­dicts that the Tem­ple would be recon­struct­ed for Jew­ish wor­ship. Even as we are writ­ing this review, the news arrived that a Zion­ist in the US has denot­ed $10 mil­lion and Israeli gov­ern­ment is on the way to dig anoth­er tun­nel under Masjid al-Aqsa a step in the direc­tion of ful­fill­ing the long await­ed dream to demol­ish­ing the Masjid and recon­struct­ing the Tem­ple (Masjid) of Solomon (alay­hi al-salam).

Since the Zion­ists will achieve all these appar­ent suc­cess­es in the most inhu­man man­ner, the author digs out ref­er­ences from the Qur’an that after expelling the rebel­lious Jews out of the Holy Land for the sec­ond time, Allah declared His inten­tion to keep on pun­ish­ing them if they kept on des­e­crat­ing the Holy Land with vio­la­tions of the con­di­tion of faith and right­eous con­duct. ‘…but if ye revert (to your vio­la­tion of the con­di­tion imposed for inher­i­tance of the Holy Land) We shall revert (to Our pun­ish­ments. i.e., you will be expelled again and again)…’ Qur’an, Bani Isra’il, 17:8

Keep­ing the apartheid and eth­nic cleans­ing based racist poli­cies of the Israeli state in mind, the author con­cludes that the des­tiny of Jerusalem is plain­ly writ­ten in the above warn­ing and firm dec­la­ra­tion in the Qur’an This remains so regard­less of any…agreements nego­ti­at­ed in Camp David…resolution of the US Senate…[or] res­o­lu­tions of the UN…”

Appear­ance vs. Reality

Anoth­er beau­ty of the book is the author?s skill­ful sep­a­ra­tion of appear­ances from the real­i­ty in the light of the Qur’an. It great­ly assists read­ers in under­stand­ing the issues in which many Jews dis­agree. This work is a proof how the com­plex rid­dles of present day pol­i­tics and inter­na­tion­al rela­tion can nev­er be under­stood with­out refer­ring to the Qur?an which clear­ly states : Ver­i­ly the Qur’an explains to the Israelites most of the mat­ters in which they dis­agree. And it cer­tain­ly is a Guide and a Mer­cy to those who believe“Qur’an, 27:76 – 7. And Mid­dle East is at the cen­tre of a nev­er-end­ing problem.

Appar­ent­ly most Jews have embraced Israel as the ful­fill­ment of their great­est dream of return­ing to the Holy Land. It will soon become a Rul­ing State as no one can chal­lenge it in any way. In the author’s view, “[t]he fact that they have been so utter­ly and com­plete­ly deceived by the Impos­tor State of Israel is indica­tive of their con­tin­u­ing spir­i­tu­al blindness.”

The real­i­ty” from the Islam­ic point of view is that the Anti-Christ has deceived the Jews into believ­ing that divine grace has brought them this close to the com­plete ful­fill­ment of their great­est dream. The real­i­ty” is that their spir­i­tu­al blind­ness has led them into a divine trap from which there is now no escape.” The much dread­ed and oft-repeat­ed ?destruc­tion of Israel ? is its destiny.

Con­fir­ma­tion of The Reality

Anoth­er beau­ty of this book is the seem­ing rep­e­ti­tion at some places. In fact, this rep­re­sent­ed the extreme inter-con­nect­ed­ness and inescapable real­i­ty of his­to­ry, scrip­tures and cur­rent affairs. The author ham­mers the nails of his argu­ment from dif­fer­ent direc­tions until he con­clu­sive­ly proves his point of view.

In sup­port of the above men­tioned real­i­ty, the author brings for­ward a verse from the Holy Qur’an : Allah has promised to those among you who believe (in Islam) and are right­eous in con­duct that He will sure­ly cause them to inher­it the land (i.e., the Holy Land), as He grant­ed it to those before them (i.e., the Jews); that He will estab­lish their reli­gion (i.e., Islam) in author­i­ty (in the Holy Land), the (reli­gion) which He has cho­sen for them (see Qur?an, al-Maid­ah, 5:3); and that He will change (their state) after the fear in which they (lived) to one of secu­ri­ty and peace : ?They will wor­ship Me (alone) and not asso­ciate aught with Me.? If any do reject faith after this they are rebel­lious and wicked.” (Qur?an, al-Nasr, 24:55)

For explain­ing the state of fear” in the above men­tioned verse, the author refers to the fear in which the believ­ers live” and declares that it must sure­ly include the present awe­some Israeli oppres­sion in the Holy Land.”


In a world in which one can­not afford to call Israel a racist state, where one can­not sur­vive with­out rec­og­niz­ing its legit­i­ma­cy”, where any­one call­ing for Israel’s destruc­tion is brand­ed as a ter­ror­ist who deserves to be thrown into the con­cen­tra­tion camp at Guan­tanamo Bay, pre­sent­ing an unde­ni­able the­sis of its destruc­tion needs a lot of courage.

To con­vinc­ing­ly present his the­sis, the author proves authen­tic­i­ty of quotes from reli­gious scrip­tures with ref­er­ences to his­to­ry and cur­rent affairs. At the same time, he effec­tive­ly explains his­tor­i­cal and cur­rent events in the light of reli­gious scrip­tures. He also quotes many vers­es from the Holy Qur’an and say­ings of Prophet Muham­mad (sal­la Allahu alay­hi wa sal­lam) which many of the co-opt­ing Mus­lims try to avoid. Such shy­ing away on the part of Mus­lims leaves many of the West­ern­ers — par­tic­u­lar­ly the Amer­i­cans who love their coun­try and don’t want to see it bleed­ing at the cost of prop­ping Israel — igno­rant of the Truth and unaware of the hard facts.

The rea­son Imran N. Hosein could say it all in his book Jerusalem in the Qur?an is sim­ply that he is nei­ther head of a client state nor a hand-picked sheikh of Al-Azhar. He is not afraid of los­ing any title of fake Islam­ic schol­ar­ship. This makes his in-depth research into the divine scrip­tures, his­to­ry and cur­rent affairs a valu­able les­son for every human being on the face of earth. The Destiny Of Israel: Review Of "Jerusalem in the Qur'an" 2Endmark


  1. Actu­al­ly the book is very wise. Israel will rule behind its prox­ies USA and EU. the seat of satan will be set up by jews in Jerusalem and the anti-christ will bethe man­i­fes­ta­tion of this satan­ic rule that the jews with set up. Of course those who don’t under­stand judaism will argue against this point because most peo­ple think that judaism is devine. Noth­ing is fur­ther from the truth> Judaism or more pre­cise­ly raban­ism is pure satanism cloaked with reli­gion of Moses and David.

  2. Israel is sim­ply tak­ing revenge of Hitlers Holo­caust from Palestines.

  3. -Sim­ply absurd-

    This author is just part of a very long line of mil­lenial prophets who choose bits and pieces of reli­gious or oth­er prophet­ic texts and apply those high­ly selec­tive texts to the world they live in to make it appear as if those prophe­cies are com­ing to fruition. The more clever and suc­cess­ful ones gen­er­ate large fol­low­ings of believ­ers but they have all of them been deceived. Maybe one day one of these prophets of doom will be cor­rect, but if his­to­ry is any guide they mere­ly suf­fer from delu­sions of grandeur and their fol­low­ers have all been gullible fools want­i­ng more than any­thing to pos­sess a cer­tain­ty that is impos­si­ble for humans to obtain.

    Any­body with a rea­son­able edu­ca­tion and any grasp of his­to­ry and inter­na­tion­al rela­tions real­izes the absur­di­ty of the pro­posed sce­nario. Israel is quite inca­pable of dom­i­nat­ing the world. Its resources and pop­u­la­tion are far too finite. The US is eas­i­ly the most pow­er­ful coun­try in the world today and we see the lim­its of its pow­er everywhere.

    I was dis­ap­point­ed that you did not employ crit­i­cal think­ing to this book. IMO, the rea­son­ing and log­ic used in that book is very poor­ly con­struct­ed. The author employs a tech­nique called ?cher­ry-pick­ing ? where he only choose those por­tions of evi­dence that sup­port his pre-con­ceived notions and dis­card those that oppose it.
