Israel

Qur’aanic Verse 5.21:

5.21

Transliteration:

21. Ya qawmi odkhuloo al-arda almuqaddasata allatee kataba Allahu lakum wala tartaddoo AAala adbarikum fatanqaliboo khasireena

Translation:

21. [Moses said,] “O my people! Enter the holy land which Allah has assigned to you12, 13 and turn not on your backs; for, then, you will turn back doomed.”

 

Study Notes:

12. It is on the basis of this divine statement, which obviously the Torah also contains, that the State of Israel has now been created. The Jews claim that they have a divine right to the land, which was almost entirely inhabited by the Arabs at the beginning of the twentieth century. There were hardly any Jews living there then. They had been scattered all over the world as small minorities. The Allied Forces, which had defeated the Germans in World War II, had promised to the Jews, who had suffered greatly in Hitler’s Germany, to give them a land of their own. And so was the State of Israel created in 1948. And the scattered Jews flocked to the new State from all over the world. The land with the original boundaries of Israel was not enough, and the State managed to occupy surrounding Arab territory in conflicts and wars that ensued. The Arabs were thus turned into refugees in their own land.

13. But, whatever the circumstances under which Israel stands now created, the coming into existence of the new State is a confirmation of the divine statement that the land was assigned to the Jews. Therefore they are there now. They were there before also, forty years after they were first told to enter the land, as the Verses, following this Verse, indicate. Under David and Solomon, the land prospered and expanded. But, thereafter, the Jews relapsed into the same rebellious mood as depicted in Verses below. They were punished, their State was completely destroyed, and they were scattered to live as small minorities in different parts of the world. [Refer Verses 17.4 & 17.5] They are brought together now as foretold in Verse 17.104. And if they become arrogant again, they are again destined for destruction. [Verse 17.7]
