I warn my Muslim brothers and sisters. Don’t curse the holy name of Israel, or the people of Israel. While some citizens of the state of Israel, and some Jews in general are bad people. They are people like any other and some of them are saints, while others were prophets.
Allah Subharna Wa Ta’ala states in the Holy Qur’an, Surah Al Imran, verses 74-76:
“He chooses for His mercy whom He pleases, Allah is the Owner of mighty grace.
Among the People of the Book there are some who, if you trust them with a heap of gold, will readily return it back; and there are others who, if you trust them with a single dinar (silver coin), will not return it back unless you constantly keep on demanding; because they say, ‘We are not going to be called to account for our behavior with the illiterates (non Jews or Christians).’
Thus they deliberately ascribe a lie to Allah – knowing well that He never permitted such wrongdoing.
In fact, those who keep their promise and guard themselves against evil are His beloved, for Allah loves only those who guard themselves against such evils.”
Allah Suharna wa Ta’Ala clearly is saying, some of the Jews and Christians are very good people, who are very honest straightforward and trustworthy. So even though there are some who do wrong, how can we condemn all Jews and Christians, or the people of Israel?
Muslims complain when some people say all Muslims are terrorists, or Islam encourages terrorism! Most Muslims are not of course, and Islam teaches us to make peace in the world not terror. How can some Muslims not then realise the same is just as true for Jews and Christians?
Israel is a Holy name, given by Allah Suharna Wa Ta’Ala to Prophet Yaqub (Jacob) (AS) and his descendants. To condemn Yaqub (AS) and his descendants is making war with Allah!
