Details of the Question

According to our religion, unbelief continues but oppression does not continue. However, Palestine has been groaning for almost a century under the oppressor. What is the reason for it?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Firstly, the principle “unbelief continues but oppression does not continue” shows that Israel continues its unbelief in terms of their principles of faith because they violated the prohibition of Saturday along with oppression.

Secondly, a period of time that seems very long to us is very short for Allah. The state does not hurry to catch a criminal because it is sure that it will catch and punish the criminal. Allah's patience is definitely more than the state’s patience; He does not have any concern that He cannot – God forbid – catch the criminal. Even if a person lives under oppression throughout his life, it is a very short time for Allah. For, a big penalty awaits the oppressors in the hereafter.

Thirdly:

“Let not the Unbelievers think that our respite to them is good for themselves: We grant them respite that they may grow in their iniquity: But they will have a shameful punishment.” (Aal-i Imran, 3/178)

As it is expressed in the verse above, Allah gives some time to oppressors but He never neglects/forgets them. On the contrary, He gives the oppressors some more time so that they will commit crimes to deserve more penalty because their oppression will infuriate Allah. Long live Hell for oppressors!

The fourth point is this: For Allah’s wrath to come for the oppressors and His help for the oppressed ones as soon as possible, it is necessary for the oppressed ones to show a stance that will deserve help. The abasement and faint-heartedness of both the Palestinians and the other Islamic countries, which are their brothers, virtually invite the continuation of the oppression.  Those who died inshallah went into the presence of Allah as martyrs. However, the disagreement and division of the Muslims that are alive and their supporting the oppressors make them accomplices and delay the salvation of Palestine.
