[2] Some Beliefs of Christian Zionists and Yahood Zionists

In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

The truth is that there is no specific society that Allah chose for their own advantage over other societies, as the Zionists amongst Jews and Christians claim. All societies and people are created from dust – all share this origin. Allah [The Exalted] said:

وَلَقَدۡ خَلَقۡنَا ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنَ مِن سُلَـٰلَةٍ۬ مِّن طِينٍ۬
ثُمَّ جَعَلۡنَـٰهُ نُطۡفَةً۬ فِى قَرَارٍ۬ مَّكِينٍ۬
ثُمَّ خَلَقۡنَا ٱلنُّطۡفَةَ عَلَقَةً۬ فَخَلَقۡنَا ٱلۡعَلَقَةَ مُضۡغَةً۬ فَخَلَقۡنَا ٱلۡمُضۡغَةَ عِظَـٰمً۬ا فَكَسَوۡنَا ٱلۡعِظَـٰمَ لَحۡمً۬ا ثُمَّ أَنشَأۡنَـٰهُ خَلۡقًا ءَاخَرَ‌ۚ فَتَبَارَكَ ٱللَّهُ أَحۡسَنُ ٱلۡخَـٰلِقِينَ

And certainly, We created man—(Ādam)—out of an extract of clay. Thereafter, we made (his creation and reproduction) through (the means of) a sperm-drop placed in a safe-lodging (the womb). Then we made the nuṭfah into a clinging-clot, and We made the clot into a lump and We made from the lump, bones, and We covered the bones in flesh. Then We developed him into another creation, so Blessed is Allāh, the best of creators. [Surah Al-Muminoon. Ayaat 12-14] [Translator- Shaikh Abu Iyaad (may Allah preserve him)].

As for excelling one another in virtue, it is only due to piety. Allah said:

يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَٰكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَٰكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَآئِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوٓا۟ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ أَتْقَىٰكُمْ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ

O mankind, We have created you from a male (Ādam) and female (Eve) (making you all of equal lineage) and We made you into nations and tribes that you may know one another (and fulfil each other’s rights). Verily, the most honourable of you with Allāh is the most pious of you (and not the noblest in lineage or most affluent) (so do not be boastful and belittle others). Indeed, Allāh is all-Knowing, all-Aware. [Surah Al-Hujuraat. Ayah 13] [Translator- Shaikh Abu Iyaad (may Allah preserve him)].

Allah mentioned in His book, the Noble Qur’an, that He chose the children of Israel to carry His message and preferred them over all others to carry that message during their time, not because of their race, ethnicity, or lineage, but rather, it was an obligation for the Children of Israel and a test for them as to whether they would be grateful or ungrateful. Allah said:

وَلَقَدِ ٱخْتَرْنَٰهُمْ عَلَىٰ عِلْمٍ عَلَى ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ
وَءَاتَيْنَٰهُم مِّنَ ٱلْءَايَٰتِ مَا فِيهِ بَلَٰٓؤٌا۟ مُّبِينٌ

And We chose them (the Children of Israel) above the ‘Alamin (mankind, and jinns) [during the time of Musa (Moses)] with knowledge, and granted them signs in which there was a plain trial. [Surah Al-Dukhan. Ayaat 32-33]

They failed this trial and test thereafter because they distorted the religion ordained by Allah, disobeyed, and transgressed. Allah said:

لُعِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ مِنۢ بَنِىٓ إِسْرَٰٓءِيلَ عَلَىٰ لِسَانِ دَاوُۥدَ وَعِيسَى ٱبْنِ مَرْيَمَ ذَٰلِكَ بِمَا عَصَوا۟ وَّكَانُوا۟ يَعْتَدُونَ
كَانُوا۟ لَا يَتَنَاهَوْنَ عَن مُّنكَرٍ فَعَلُوهُ لَبِئْسَ مَا كَانُوا۟ يَفْعَلُونَ

Those among the Children of Israel who disbelieved were cursed by the tongue of Dawud (David) and ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). That was because they disobeyed (Allah and the Messengers) and were ever transgressing beyond bounds. They used not to forbid one another from the Munkar (wrong, evil-doing, sins, polytheism, disbelief, etc.) which they committed. Vile indeed was what they used to do. [Surah Al-Maa’idah. Ayaat 78-79]

Their books themselves confirm that the Lord cursed them, and this is mentioned in many texts in their books.

Rebuttal has been conveyed against the Yahood and Nasaaraa (against their claim) that they are the Children of Allah and His beloved ones. Allah said:

وَقَالَتِ ٱلْيَهُودُ وَٱلنَّصَٰرَىٰ نَحْنُ أَبْنَٰٓؤُا۟ ٱللَّهِ وَأَحِبَّٰٓؤُهُۥ قُلْ فَلِمَ يُعَذِّبُكُم بِذُنُوبِكُم بَلْ أَنتُم بَشَرٌ مِّمَّنْ خَلَقَ يَغْفِرُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ وَيُعَذِّبُ مَن يَشَآءُ وَلِلَّهِ مُلْكُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا وَإِلَيْهِ ٱلْمَصِيرُ

And (both) the Jews and the Christians say: “We are the children of Allah and His loved ones.” Say: “Why then does He punish you for your sins?” Nay, you are but human beings, of those He has created, He forgives whom He wills and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, and to Him is the return (of all). [Surah Al-Maa’idah. Ayah 18] [1]

Imaam As-Sadi [may Allah have mercy upon him] stated in the Tafsir of this Ayah: Among the statements of the Yahood and Nasaaraa is that they both make false claims to praise themselves, saying: “We are the children of Allah and His loved ones”. The word Children in their language means a loved one and not a child in reality because this is not from the (belief) of the Yahood, rather, it is the (belief) of the Christians regarding the Messiah [peace be upon him]. So, Allah rebutted them saying, [ فَلِمَ يُعَذِّبُكُم بِذُنُوبِكُم – Why then does He punish you for your sins?] If you were His beloved ones, He would not have punished you because Allah does not love anyone except the one who does deeds that are pleasing to Him. “Nay, you are but human beings among those He has created” and you are treated based on (Allah’s) rulings of (perfect) justice and grace. “He forgives whom He wills and He punishes whom He wills” if the person follows the means to receiving forgiveness or punishment. “And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, and to Him is the return (of all)”. Meaning, what is it that gave you this special virtue when it is the fact that you are among the things He owns (His servants) and among those who will be returned to Allah in the home of the Afterlife, and He will recompense you for your deeds.
