Al Forqan is a Canadian Arabic newspaper based in Windsor, Ontario. Its Editor and Managing Director is Mohamad Hisham Khalifeh.
The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs reported that in Issue 64, May-June 2018, p. 7, Al Forqan published an article entitled “Prophecies that have not yet been fulfilled after the time of the Prophet [Mohammad].” Here is an excerpt from the original Arabic article:
“Fighting the Jews. “It is narrated from the hadith of Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: ‘The Hour will not begin until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims will kill them.’”
Imam Karim AbuZaid, the Imam of Dar Al-Tawheed in Aurora, Colorado included the same hadith in a lecture at The Islamic Society of Augusta, Georgia. Here is an excerpt of AbuZaid’s lecture entitled “Jerusalem: Allah’s gift to His Slaves”(published on YouTube: December 9, 2017):
Unfortunately, this [Muslim control over Jerusalem] lasted for a little bit, then it’s taken away from us through a promise that was given to the Jewish people by [Britain’s] prime minister called [Arthur] Balfour… [Arthur] Balfour is a human being who gave a promise [a public statement issued by the British government during World War I announcing support for the establishment of a ‘national home for the Jewish people’]. [Donald] Trump is a human being who made a promise [recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel]. We have a promise from Allah. We have a promise from Allah that this land [Palestine] will come back to the [Muslim] believers to the Muslims, to salves (ibad) of Allah, to the slaves of Allah. It is certain. I swear by Allah, [wallahi] it is certain and they believe in it. I swear by Allah, [wallahi], they know it is going to happen. I swear by Allah, [wallahi], I have no doubt it is going to happen. And if you doubt this then you have to go back and check your belief in the oneness of Allah [tawheed], your belief system, your faith [aqidah]. You have to check that. Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He [subhanahu wa taala], you know like Joshua called upon the sun. He said to the sun: Stay still. You know that we believe that the rock, the rock will call upon the believer, but look how it will call him: Ya Abdallah, Oh slave of Allah, come! Behind me is an enemy of Allah. The rock will help you to do this.
Note: Karim AbuZaid quoted a segment of the following hadith: “Abu Huraira reported Allahs Messenger as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: “Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”
