Why are Jews so hostile to Muslims? The following is stated in the Torah: “As for the towns of these peoples that the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, you must not let anything that breathes remain alive.” How can it be possible?

The Details of the Question

It is allegedly stated that Allah says so. Muslims do not harm even trees, let alone them. How can they accept this phenomenon, which has nothing to do with human values and honor?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Jews are a nation that deliberately conceals the truth, denies the truth even though they see miracles, knows that Muhammad (pbuh) is a prophet but does not accept him out of jealousy, and hence is an enemy of him, and has incurred the wrath and condemnation of Allah, and whose distinctive characteristic is to plot mischief.

A very important aspect of the JEWISH issue that concerns us is the chapter of al-Isra and its verses in the Holy Quran.

As it is known, there are many verses in the Quran about Jews; and in general, the structure, character and actions of Jews are described to us. Race and religion are virtually integrated in the Jewish people. There is almost no Jew who is not a Judaist and no Judaist who is not a Jew. God Almighty clearly states that He has cursed this nation.

“They were covered with humiliation and misery; they drew on themselves the wrath of Allah. This because they went on rejecting the Signs of Allah and slaying His Messengers without just cause. This because they rebelled and went on transgressing.” (al-Baqara, 2/61)

The following is stated in verse 64 of the chapter of al-Maida:  

“The Jews say: “(Allah)’s hand is tied up.” Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy) they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched: He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy.”

If the question, “What is the decree of God Almighty on the cursed Jews?” is asked and the Quranic verses are scanned from this perspective, the chapter of al-Isra appears before us. The main features of this chapter are as follows:

• The chapter of al-Isra mentions the relations between Muslims and Jews.

• The Messenger of Allah traveled from Makkah to Jerusalem on that night in order to show that Masjid al-Aqsa is a mosque and to ascend from its vicinity to the lofty levels of the heavens, where Sidratul-Muntaha is located.

• In the chapter of al-Isra, which was revealed during the Makkan period, Allah foretells two mischiefs that will lead to the destruction of Sons of Israel.

That is the important point!..

Did those two mischiefs mentioned in the verse take place before the verse was revealed, or will they take place afterwards!


“And We gave (Clear) Warning to the Children of Israel in the Book, that twice would they do mischief on the earth and be elated with mighty arrogance (and twice would they be punished).” (al-Isra, 17/4)

The word ‘idha’ mentioned in verse 5 is an adverbial preposition in Arabic and indicates that the event will take place in the future. Similarly, the word ‘la’ in the phrases ‘la tufsidunna’ and ‘la ta’lunna’ in verse 4 is used to indicate the future in Arabic grammar. So, the presence of these words tells us that the mischief of the Jews has not yet come, but will take place at some time in the future after the revelation of the verses.

“When the first of the warnings came to pass, We sent against you Our servants given to terrible warfare: They entered the very inmost parts of your homes; and it was a warning (completely) fulfilled.” (al-Isra, 17/5)

It is clearly understood from both verses (al-Isra, 17/4-5) that the Jews will cause mischief and chaos after the Makkan period of Islam, but when the time comes, this fire will be extinguished by the Muslims, whom God Almighty calls ‘My servants’, and the Jews will be defeated and all their lands will be under the control of Islam... As a matter of fact, that is exactly what happened, and the Jews were defeated by the first Muslims despite all their tricks and intrigues; and the Jewish power in areas such as Madinah, Khaybar and Tayma was destroyed and they were expelled from these areas. In other words, the promise in verse 5 of the chapter of al-Isra came true and the Jews lost the chance to actively reside in those regions until their second mischief.


- What is the second mischief of Jews mentioned in the verse and when will it take place?

Verse 6 of the chapter of al-Isra is very significant:

“Then did We grant you the Return as against them: We gave you increase in resources and sons, and made you the more numerous in man-power.”

In the verse above, God Almighty also foretells that one day the Jews will again dominate the same regions in the form of a ‘state’. The word ‘karrah’ mentioned in the verse is used in Arabic in the sense of ‘state’ and ‘sovereignty’. As a matter of fact, Muslims, who did not deal with any significant Jewish issue after the early periods of Islam (after the 1st Mischief) until 1948, faced the second Jewish mischief when the Jews established the State of Israel in 1948; and the Jews took over this region by establishing sovereignty.

The clause in verse 6 of the chapter of al-Isra “...We gave you increase in resources and sons...” informs us, as a miracle of the Quran, that the established State of Israel will stand with the help of Christian America and the West!...

Verse 6 of the chapter of al-Isra ends as follows: “...and made you the more numerous in man-power”. In 1948, the immigration of the Jews, especially American Jews, to Israel in huge flotillas and for months on end is a miraculous manifestation of this verse.

Then, the second mischief of the Jews is the mischief and oppression of the current State of Israel.

Those who want to know about the end of the oppression that is still going on even in the remotest village of Palestine and that makes everyone ashamed of their humanity should carefully read verse 7 of the chapter of al-Isra, which is the continuation of verses 4 and 5 of the chapter of al-Isra and which points to the situation of the Jews after the Prophet (pbuh).

“So, when the second of the warnings came to pass, (We permitted your enemies) to disfigure your faces, and to enter your Temple as they had entered it before, and to visit with destruction all that fell into their power.”

In al-Isra 7, which comes after al-Isra 6, in which God Almighty informs us that the Jews will one day be victorious and establish a state again, we are also given the good news that this state oppression will end one day and that Muslims will punish the Jews by entering Al-Aqsa Mosque again, as they did the first time, and that the facial features of the Jews will become very bad. It should be noted that in the statement that Muslims will enter Al-Aqsa Mosque again, it is also mentioned that the mosque will be under Jewish occupation. As a matter of fact, Al-Aqsa Mosque fell into the hands of the Jews in 1967.  

• At the end of the chapter of al-Isra, there is another verse about the second mischief of the Jews:

“And We said thereafter to the Children of Israel, ‘Dwell securely in the land (of promise)”: but when the second of the warnings came to pass, We gathered you together in a mingled crowd.’ (al-Isra, 17/104)

The Arabic meaning of the word ‘lafifan’ mentioned in the verse is ‘various communities’, which means that the Jewish immigrants who founded Israel in 1948 came to PALESTINE from all over the world in various communities and established the State of Israel on the night of May 14, 1948. (Jerusalem Post August 10, 1967) Those who know the science of jafr (symbolic significance of the letters of the Arabic alphabet) know very well that the word ‘lafifan’ in this verse indicates the date of the establishment of the State of Israel down to the year, month and day...
