The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

“... Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it; but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth.” As it can be seen in the verse above, the wars that the Jews want to kindle can be material as well as spiritual - in the form of causing mischief.

Instead of the word “qital”, the word “harb”, which covers all kinds of wars, including cold war, is used in the verse. On the other hand, given the context of the statement, it can also be said that it refers to conflicts that bring religious disputes to the forefront.

On the one hand, they plotted mischief against the Prophet (pbuh) himself when they tried to kill him by throwing stones at his head and when they tried to kill him by poisoning him in Khaybar; on the other hand, they tried to kill the Muslims by demoralizing them when they left the army during the Battle of Uhud and tried to exterminate all Muslims when they provoked the polytheists of Quraysh to start the Battle of Khandaq. Throughout history, they repeatedly started murderous wars and mischiefs against the Islamic Ummah, whose leader is the Prophet (pbuh), and in the end they were extinguished and became ashes.

As it is understood from the verse, if the bigoted attitudes and efforts to arouse the feelings of warfare displayed by the subversive faction of the Jews throughout the centuries did not yield the expected results, it should be regarded as a divine blessing.

The Jews repeatedly staged this war against the Prophet (pbuh) but Allah extinguished it by making them and their followers miserable.

Their wars are also extinguished today and they start them again. For example, in Palestine, they repeatedly made ceasefires and then restarted the war. It seems that in the end they will be extinguished completely. The periods that we consider long are very short periods in the sight of Allah.
