A Jew hiding behind me… or IN me? Introduction

عن أبى هريرة أن رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- قال « لا تقوم الساعة حتى يقاتل المسلمون اليهود فيقتلهم المسلمون ، حتى يختبئ اليهودى من وراء الحجر والشجر ، فيقول الحجر أو الشجر : يا مسلم يا عبد الله هذا يهودى خلفى فتعال فاقتله ، إلا الغرقد فإنه من شجر اليهود » .

Abū Hurayrah رضى الله عنه narrated that Rasūlullāh صلى الله عليه و سلم  said:

The Hour shall not arise until the Muslims fight the Jews. The Muslims will slay them to extent that the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stone or the tree will call out, “O Muslim! O slave of Allāh! This is a Jew hiding behind me. Come and kill him!” The exception will be the Gharqad [Boxthorn/ Goji], for it is a tree of the Jews. [Muslim]

A Ḥadīth which the politically correct are uncomfortable with….fortunately, this loose cannon is not politically correct.

So what do we understand from this Ḥadīth?

  • Before Qiyāmah there will be [or already is today] a major conflict between the Muslims and the Jews.
  • Implicit to the above as that whilst individual Jews may be guided, the masses will remain in opposition to truth until the bitter end. There is however hope for the guidance of others.
  • The Muslims will ultimately triumph.
  • The remnants of the Jewish foe will flee for their lives.
  • Creation which do not normally make any sound let alone speech, will call out for the destruction of these enemies of Allāh.

It is this last point which I wish to delve into in a series of postings inshāallāh.

There are some who have love interpreting the clear words of Qurān and Ḥadīth and declare them to be symbols in their complicated theories These theories deny the literal words of Allāh and His Rasūl صلى الله عليه و سلم  as if Allāh and His Rasūl صلى الله عليه و سلم  are incapable of saying directly  what they mean!  May Allāh save us from such thoughts.  Such esoteric interpretations, or rather the mind-set which necessitates such interpretations, are more appropriate, I believe, to the Masons. Our father, Idrīs ‘alayhis salām, was a scientist, but Allāh chose for his Final Ummah a nabī who could neither read nor write. Surely there is a reason behind that? Similarly Sulaymān ‘alayhis salām was a king-nabī, but our Nabī صلى الله عليه و سلم chose not to be. In other words, the Sunnah of our Nabī صلى الله عليه و سلم  can be fulfilled by every Muslim without needing to possess wealth, kingship or intricate scientific knowledge. Islām must be equally practical and comprehensible to a descendant of Rasūlullāh صلى الله عليه و سلم , a sophisticated European convert and an Amazon tribesman.

But I digress. I do not deny the clear literal words of Rasūlullāh صلى الله عليه و سلم. I firmly believe that stones and trees will speak with a human voice to expose the Jews. At the same time, I ponder if perhaps there is an additional aspect to the literal words.

The major distinction between stones and trees is that one is organic and the other is inorganic. The major commonality is that neither speaks. Consider that the Arabic also seems to have nice poetic metre – ḥajar and shajar. Does this not perhaps indicate that the entire creation will reach such an extreme level of uncontrollable frustration at the mischief which has been wrought on the earth, that even the organic creation of trees (instead of organic animals which at least make sounds) and the inorganic creation of stones, will scream with pent up frustration boiling over from centuries, “Enough! Enough! Enough! We’ve had enough of this mischief! Our earth is polluted, our air and our skies! We have been deformed and misused beyond any further point of forbearance. We have witnessed every possible mischief and rebellion against Allāh. We, the unspeaking, speak and demand that you clean us of these mischief makers! In the name of Allāh! O slave of Allāh, save us.”

Really, are the Jews that bad? If you believe in Allāh’s words and His Rasūl’s صلى الله عليه و سلم , then you already know the answer.

In our upcoming discussion, I shall seek to explain various aspects of mischief which have defiled the earth and must ultimately lead to the events described in the above Ḥadīth.  Whilst the list of mischief is long and painful, my primary concern is how Jews have managed to mentally colonise Muslims and modify their behaviour. Hence I ask each Muslim to ask, “Is there a Jew hiding in me?”

The balance Islām demands is not easy. It is not palatable to both the irreligious and the zealot. The zealot must be reminded that most of us are not in the domain of war and must treat every Jew we encounter with Islāmic character. Let him remind himself that ‘Abdurraḥmān bin ‘Awf  رضى الله عنه berated his wife for just once not sending a portion of her cooking to their Jewish neighbour. Let those who close their eyes to what mischief is wrought on earth remind themselves:

You will undoubtedly find the severest people in enmity against those who believe to be the Jews and those who ascribe partners [unto Allāh]. (al-Māidah: 82)

    Dear fellow tribeman from kindah
    Think for yourself. Our tribe was a proud Jewish tribe before Islam along with Himyerite in Yeman. Their leader came to prophet to declare Islam and took blessing from prophet that they can be jews and those who want to remain Jews can do so at will for the respect of all Arabs to the royalty of Kindite leaders. al ashath bin qais converted only after he was assured on the justfullness of prophet. However after death of prophet the Kindites declared their Judaism as before. Every thing that happened to the royal kindite clan in Nujair is well narrated by Muslim historian is well known. Most of the tribe dwindled to escape to avoid the same fate similar to rest of Jews
    in Arabia. There are many fals Hadiths that acuse jews which were Muawiya and his propaganda. The prophet Mohammed is by far a just. Unfortunately we Muslims suffer from propaganda and dictatorship of Hajaj and his alikes who distorted even Hadiths.

    1. Dear son of Kindah bin Saba

      I hardly write articles these days, let alone have time to debate. However, out of courtesy to our common kinship – here is my concise reply to all three comments you have made:

      I am well aware of the honourable status of our ancestors. Yet all their centuries of achievments mean nothing to me compared to just a second of one kindi particiapting in the Battle of Badr. May Allah be pleased with him. There is no greater honour than Islam.

      It is Allah’s favour that our ancestors followed the Tawrah whilst others worshipped idols. We can claim to have a possible unbroken lineage of thousands of years of worshipping Allah. Yet all that is abrogated with the revelation of the Quraan. The Nabi of the Tawrah would be obliged to follow the Quraan were he living today.

      Your attachment to idols, Jews and those who hate the Sahaabah pains me doubly when you invoke our common ancestry. Yet it is but further proof to my contention that the Rawaafid are brothers of the Jews, not us.

      May Allah guide us all.

        Dear fellow tribesman
        I agree with you about Islam but I am sure that jews are good people of a book and respectful knowledge in science and humanity. They are entitled to have their rights like us. ASK FOR OTHERS WHAT YOU LIKE FOR YOURSELF. CENTURIES OF VIOLENCE AND HATE WILL NOT SPREAD ISLAM. PROHPET MOHAMMED CAME WITH A MESSAGE OF PEACE AND RESPECT TO ALL PEOPLE. Women and Men.. INDONESIA AND MALASIA GOT ISLAM THROUGH TRADE WITH YEMENI OMANI AND GULF TRADERS IN PEACE. SOME OF THESE TRADERS WERE FROM TRIBES LIKE US WITH JEWISH HERATAGE BEFORE ISLAM. I ONLY ASK YOU TO SEE THAT PEACE AND GOODNESS IS TO ALL HUMANS WITH OUT HATE TO ANY RELEGION. JEWS ARE LIKE MOST OF US AND THEY SPEND THEIR TIME TO BUILD GOODNESS AND LEAD FOR GOODNESS AND EDUCATE THEIR PEOPLE HOW TO MAKE A GOOD LIFE ON EARTH. ALLAH WILL SAVE THEIR CHILDEREN AND GIVE THEM BETTER BECAUSE THEY CARE FOR THEIR GOODNESS WHILE SOME MUSLIMS WASTE THEIR TIME WITH FALSE HADEETH THAT INSULT OTHER HUMANS. YOU KNOW THAT THESE ARE ONLY HAJAJ AND YAZEED BIN MOAWYA PROPAGANDA TO SCARE OUR YEMENI TRIBES. THE QURAN DOES NOT INCLUDE SUCH WORDS ABOUT JEWS. A MAN OF JUSTFULLNESS AND HUMANITY DO NOT WARRY ABOUT RAFIDAH SINCE QURAN IS THE JUDGE. JEWS ARE PEOPLE OF A HEAVENLY BOOK AND ALLAH GAVE THEM ALL BOOKS..TORAH BIBLE AND QURAN. IT IS UP TO THEM TO CHOOSE AS THEY WISH IN FREEDOM. THIS IS HOW ALLAH JUDGE PEOPLE. By free will of choice not foce. IT IS MUCH BETTER TO BE HONEST AND STRAIGHTFORWARD WITH ALL PEOPLE BY RESPECTING ALL CHILDREN OF GOD ON EARTH. We are all so small to waste this very short life in lies and say these are hadiths. ALLAH HAS ALWAYS GIVEN US SENSES AND LOGIC TO BE JUST AND HUMANE with FREE minds to find truth.

  3. The Jews are the only nation to have been unceremoniously expelled from the nations they resided in. The lust for money, cheating and the hatred of the Goys has been their undoing

    1. These are symptoms, not the disease. The disease is that they place themselves above Allah. eg I listened to a Rabbi’s talk about the Calf idol worship. He made strange excuses defending his people; that it was actually Egyptians and even if Jew, they were small in number. His people’s honour is defended. But then he has no qualms about speaking disrespectfully about Allah, “..comes blazing like John Wayne..”
