Muslim Scholar Tells Truth That Muslims Have No Claim to Jerusalem

The truth can hurt!

And when it's a Muslim scholar clearly telling his fellow Muslims that they have no historic or legal claim to Jerusalem....that can be especially painful.

Mobarak Haidar, a renowned Pakistani historian and author of multiple books, declared to the “Muslims of the world” that they “have no religious basis to rule Jerusalem.”

Following President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Haidar wrote in his Facebook page regarding “Jerusalem and Muslim Claims,” debunking various myths surrounding the city, which has been the capital of the Jewish people for the last 3,000 years, long before Islam was conceived.

Regarding the Muslim claim that the Al-Aqsa Mosque, situated on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City, is supposedly mentioned in the Quran, the Pakistani historian explained: “The Holy Quran spoke of Al-Aqsa Mosque when it was not a ‘mosque’ in the Islamic sense. It was a holy place because of the prophets of Israel, from Moses to Jesus. It was the holy spot of worship for Jews and Christians.”

“Obviously, there were no Muslims in the city of Jerusalem till the era of Emir-ul-Momineen Umar ibn Khattab … . The Prophet [Muhammad] and his followers prayed with their faces toward this Jewish-Christian holy temple because Kaaba (the present center of Islamic Hajj) was full of idols,” Haidar pointed out, according to a translation of his Facebook post by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Jerusalem appears in the Hebrew Bible 669 times, but is not once directly mentioned by name in the Quran.

“After the ‘Conquest of Mecca,’ Muslims were told to turn their faces toward Kaaba and away from Jerusalem. They have never faced their loyalty toward Jerusalem after that, for the last 1,400 years. No Muslim ever went to pray in Jerusalem till it was conquered by the second caliph [Umar ibn Khattab in the 7th century] although there was no restriction on Muslims,” he wrote.

“Christians were masters of Jerusalem before Muslims conquered it. It is still a holy place for Christians. But Christians have no dispute over ownership of the city. It is their religious right to visit the holy city; and the Jews do not stop them,” he underscored.

“Muslims, too, should have the same religious rights, and in fact they have those rights; Jews do not stop them,” Haidar wrote.

Therefore, “Muslims of the world have no religious basis to rule Jerusalem. Most of the Muslims have never even wished to visit Jerusalem,” he said.

Please keep praying for Donald Trump and our other leaders in Washington!  The rest of the world hates to hear truth.  They would rather stay in darkness and believe the lies fabricated by the Evil One

Jesus clearly said that he came to bring the truth so that the truth will set us free.  Set free from what?  The lies of the evil one!  And currently he has convinced the world of the lie that Jerusalem belongs, in part, to the Arab Muslims.
