Does Jerusalem Mean Anything To Muslims Really?

See . . . they practically HAVE to BEG muslims to go on "pilgrimage" to Jerusalem "to show" it is a muslim city.

Now you know why no one believes these sniveling frauds and demons who claim Jerusalem as the "third holiest" city in islam.

Egypt minister urges Muslims to visit Jerusalem

2 days ago

CAIRO (AFP) — The world's billion-plus Muslims should go on pilgrimage to Jerusalem to show that it is a Muslim city and the future capital of a Palestinian state, an Egyptian minister was quoted on Thursday as saying.

Minister of Religious Endowments Mohammed Hamdi Zaqzuq made the appeal despite the Arab world's refusal of normalisation with Israel, which wants to make Jerusalem its "eternal and undivided capital."

"Just as Muslims go on pilgrimage, to Mecca, they should also go to Jerusalem and to the Al-Aqsa mosque by the hundreds of thousand every year," the Al-Masry Al-Yom daily quoted Zaqzuq as saying.

This way "we can show the whole world that Jerusalem is something that concerns all Muslims," Zaqzuq said.

So he is saying that jerusalem means NOTHING to muslims UNTIL jews decided to make it their undivided capital? No wonder for the 19yrs it was Jordanian territory even the Jordanians chose Amman rather than Jerusalem as its capital.

Now back to the issues at hand, ur logic here is this:

The Jews and the xtains (and even the hindus) have derailed so the Muslims must take over the Jewish holy city as a reward from Allah. I wont be surprised if the muslims one day come to lay claim of the vatican, i wont.

Now on the foundation of wat makes Islam 100% pure, lets take a glimpse at the past by doing a character check on the man who brought Islam into limelight and who muslims all over the world use as a role model, 'prophet' Mohammed.

Histroy has it dat he married a girl of six yrs (wen he was like 55+) and had carnal knowledge of her wen she was 9 (he broke the law of natural justice by sleepin with a minor). Can u sleep with a girl of 9yrs? NB: logically there can never be a consensual\mutually agreeable sex bw a man of 58 and a 9yr old girl.

History also has it that he married the wife of his adopted son (he broke God's command, thou shall not covet thy neighbours wife...and also commited ince.st).

Histroy has it that he led many wars agains pple who opposde his religios ideology killing, looting and taking spoils.

History has it that he commanded every muslims to fear xtain and Jews and never have anything to do with dem. He also recommendded the killing of xtains and Jews.

So this is wat makes Islam 100% pure? Even an Ifa priest will not commit the crime ur prophet commited during his life-time.

I have no business if Igbos are doing salat, going for hajj or not. I only used dem as an analogy as who owns Lagos or nor.

Even if those days, some non-Jewish settlers married and gave birth in Jerusalem, dat does not make the non-Jewish the owners of Jerusalem. We r talking about who owes wat and the attempt by the muslims to lay claim of wat never belongs to dem, even at the point of usin the Koran to defend this falsehood.

So RoyPcain in a plane language, r u saying that Jerusalem belongs to the muslims or can be shared bw the muslims and the Jews while the muslims\arabs maintain clean ownership of Mecca and medina?

^ i had to take sips of water, rinse my mouth and smile before i respond to you. i actually wanted to laugh at you. but since you can see me, if i were going to be rude to you, i would want you to see the whole of my rudeness.

now, since you drag igbo and lagos together, you must understand that a yoruba man wrote an article the other day lambasting femi fani kayode. the yoruba guy stated that lagos igbos have the same rights as femi has on lagos. the reason is that each was born and raised in there. as a matter of fact, an igbo who has never resided in any place else and has cumulatively lived in lagos longer than femi who was sometimes raised in ibadan when his father was deputy to akintola definitely has more rights than femi has. okay, i am yoruba and i dont know enough about nigeria, do i have rights over lagos than an igbo man who is 30 years old ad all of his 30 years are in lagos and continues to live there, a place foreign to me as any part of nigeria?

lagos is even ethnic place and was not formulated on religion. i remember reading and watching the video of a white man who adopt igbo culture. he lives in nigeria. married igbo woman, i think. participate in all things igbo, including the clothing, etc and the language am hoping. is he less igbo culturally than those igbo blood born overseas and never have been to igbo land? to say igbo kwenu from obodo oyinbo is not what makes you an igbo. you have to be authentic and blood alone is not it, but it includes the food, clothing, marriage, etc, etc. yet igbo, yoruba, etc are cultural and not spiritual.

now about spiritual. a white woman was made priest of the osun thing. is she not more osun than me a muslim yoruba man who denies the idolatry she embraces and heck, i dont even live in osun and dont wanna near their idolatry thing or will watch it any interest, except sadness in my heart for their disbelief?

Jerusalem is exactly in this grade; a city of religious spirituality. we are talking about true religion here. and not every religion is truly from God, but only one religion is. it is the religion of Adam [as] and under it, he and his believing mate, Hawa were taught words of seeking repentance [surah Araf].

who is the first jew as an ethnic person and or as in religion? definitely, no Ibrahim [as] even as he left his people behind in idolatry and settled somewhere else, putting his fate in Allah? before Isiaq [as] ever walked the streets of Jerusalem, Ismail [as] walked it until his father relocated him in the valley of Makka, going back often to see him which is how Yaqub [as] and his children where one of the 12 sons is Judah, the words that jew, judaism, jewish are derived.

You do not know that the whole world belongs to sincere worshiper of God, Who has given it as inheritance to them. a person who was a believer and fell into disbelief, is he always a believer? this is what you fail to understand. a holy land belongs to those who can truly worship on it. jews were holy, until they fell on the wayside. christians were holy until Paul made them deviate.

Islam is the religion where you find truth, 100% pure. so if Jerusalem is land of the prophets [as], should disbelief be the custodian? by the way, Islam is more than hajj. I thought you know that? there are igbos making daily salat and performing the hajj.

Please tell ur Islamic trouble makers to stop whinning and day-dreaming of making east jerusalem the capital of the future state of palestine, it wont simply work. Unless the arabs wanna be nuked. The American and Israel will surely do dis if the over-step their boundary here. The era of Islamic Jihadist has gone.

^ Jesus is not a christian and your ethnicity is not your religion. the true religion cant be built on ethnicity. yes. we in islam know that Jesus [as] will return and part of his destiny in this return is to die.

now only talking of the time much after the flood of Noah [as], how is city of prophets [as] the property of ethnic group, regardless of faith? should not such a city belong to true believers of their singular faith, Islam? notice that Makka and its environ and Madina, etc do not belong to the arabs, but muslims.

blindness is not always and usually necessarily by not seeing with the eyes on the face. spiritual blindness is the true blindness; blindness to guidance of God.

which would make no sense at all . . . since there was no "farthest mosque" when Sura 17 was allegedly revealed.

You mean its easier to simply make up translations as you go along?

This again makes absolutely NO SENSE AT ALL. The temple of these earlier prophets was the exact same temple the jews offered sacrifices in and also the synagogues that the jews pray in today . . . BUT that same quran refers to the jews as apes, pigs, khafirs, idol worshippers . . . why does the quran embrace the jewish temple of worship even though it sees that same jewish worship as FALSE?

Another style mohammad used to steal the cultures of others to bolster his own fraud?

But the clearly understood that to be his revelation of his heavenly journey to jerusalem. Infact in the hadiths these men asked him about the number of doors in this Jerusalem mosque and Mohammad replied WITH A SPECIFIC NUMBER OF DOORS.

If he wasnt literarilly refering to a mosque the WHAT was he refering to? The temple of the jews had already been destroyed in AD 70 so WHAT WAS ON THAT SITE? History says nothing . . .

Again pls help us understand why mohammad counted DOORS on a SITE!!!

If the site is indeed holy, it is holy SPECIFICALLY to the jews . . . how and when did it become holy to muslims? David NEVER picked a site to build a temple . . . infact the ONLY REASON you know that is because you read it from the bible you claimed is corrupt!

The earlier prophets prayed at SEVERAL sites . . . bethel, Hebron . . . so exactly what was the islamic significance of that site?

I disagree based on FACTS. I'm not into emotional drivel.

For the last time i will explain this to you. First you dont understand arabic and depend on translations. The literal meaning of aqsa in farthest but in the science of tafseer we have three methods of giving the exegis(tafseer) of the quran - By Language, By the hadeeth and by the quran itself.

The arabic word used in the quran was , "ila masjidil aqsa". The english translation could retain the arabic word or translate it literally which makes it lose its full meaning. You should also understand that every single translated quran calls itself " translation of the meanings of the qaran" and not "translation of the quran" This is because arabic is so deep and rich that for example a language like english cannot do justice to all the verses in terms of conveying the full meaning.

Making reference to the earliest translation is irelevant here becasue The first english quran was i think by either yusuf Ali in 1920's or Mahmud Pickthall. The understanding on the verse by every single scholar 1300 years before translation was that it referred to jerusalem and these was based on the prophets (PBUH) hadeeth.

Masjid in arabic morphology (Sarf) which i have studied to a good extent is derived from makkana  Sujud (Place of prostration). Masjid in islam doesnt not literally refer to mousques as in the same surah 17 u are quoting from Allah referred to the temple of the earlier prophets as masjids and these was way before muhammed.

So when the prophet reffered to the aqsa he wasnt literally refering to a mousque like the one of the muslims today. It will be interesting to note that the prophet (PBUH) was in makkah when this verse was revealed and there was no proper mosque in makkah as the qureish were still hostile to the 70 - 100 muslims. Also the 5 daily salah was not practised then so his companions definately did not understand that verse to mean a mosque where the 5 daily salah was offered like we have today as none of this was practised then.

The masjid meant a place where the earlier prophets worshipped which even predates solomon as David was supposed to build a temple on that site. The site is what is holy and not just the building as the building as been destryoed several times.

You either agrree or you disagree and i will not be dragged into another cycle of arguement as u know me well i dont argue to win at all cost but rather to simply articulate my points.

this is frankly silly . . . i asked a simple question . . . how come the earliest translations of the quran NEVER contained the term "al aqsa" but is interpreted "farthest mosque of prostration"?

I then asked again . . . how could Surah 17:1 have been refering to an alleged mosque that was not completed until 77 yrs AFTER Mohammad was dead and yrs before muslims would even conquer Jerusalem?

These two are NOT questions of logic . . . they are a problem of HISTORICAL FACTS!

If i had asked WHY you cant see Allah . . . you would have had a valid excuse.

Yeah, a church built in AD 530 . . . was that the masjid Surah 17 was talking about?

Aha . . . the usual escapist excuse when they hit the brickwall of confusion and dishonesty. Does masjid also include a church or the Jewish temple?

Fools.

when they cant prove Surah 17 they come up with all sorts of meaningless gibberish. Some are arguing masjid is a site, others say it is a mosque, the above islamobot calls it a temple (i wonder when muslims started worshipping in the jewish temple), a church or a "house of worship" . . . even though mohammad vividly describes going into a temple that didnt exist!

He seems to know arabic more than us and knows the tafseer of the verse more than us. We have explained the issue of masjid to him before and even if we repeat it it here he will still be saying the same thing and it is best to leave him to his ramblings.

Masjid in islam could mean a temple, house of worship and anywhere the names of God are celeberated and worshipers bow down to him.

There was no al aqsa when that verse was "revealed". That is a known fact . . . what is also known fact is that NOWHERE did the original translations say anything but "farthest place of prostration". Sneakily inserting al aqsa in there was done to fool block heads like you who cant think for yourselves.

I gave you FACTS and FIGURES to buttress my point . . . you can try debunking them instead of repeating the same drivel over and over again. Surah 17:1 should stand consistent with the facts no?

When Mohammad was alive, the site contained a church built in AD 530. Surely that wasnt the "farthest place of prostration" Allah was refering to no?

silly, there was no al aqsa until 50yrs after mohammad died. That is not an issue for debate, it is a clear fact that your hollow brain cannot comprehend. Mohammad died in AD 632, Jerusalem didnt fall to the muslims until AD 637.

Umar, who built the first mosque at the temple mount, would not become Caliph until AD 634 (2 yrs AFTER mohammad died).

The al aqsa mosque would not be completed until AD 709.

Yeah "since the time" of your prophet indeed.

When folks cry that Nazareth and Hebron belong to arab muslims you cant but wonder what went wrong mentally?

If you wish to lock the thread (as is usual to you folks who hate the truth) go ahead. We havent "debated" the politics of this issue because to start with it has nothing to do with politics but all to do with the quest of the islamic religion to crush the jews. Politics is simply the shroud to hide that unpalatable fact. Each time we tried to debate you, you ran away or got the thread locked.

We are only "moving in circles" because none of you wish to admit to facts and the truth. you simply regurgitate the false islamic propaganda each time.

And i have also told you that Jerusalem only became an islamic "holy site" quite recently. If it was a "holy site" why did mohammad ask that muslims stop praying towards jerusalem?

this Allah is a confused idol. First christians are "nearest in belief" but yet are khafirs fit only to be killed and forced to be dhimis?

We've all heard reports in the West Bank (Palestine is a jewish name before Arafat cunningly stole it in 1988) . . . and Gaza. the christians in Bethlehem have shrunk from majority to less than 10% since the jews handed the place over to those murderous arabs.

You mean the "christian holy sites" that Jordan destroyed before 1967?

You mean the christians living "peacefully" in bethlehem? You actually mean these "christians"?

- [url=http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3190798,00.html]'Muslims persecuting Bethlehem's Christians'[/url]

- Bethlehem Christians flee tensions

Do they really think Israel is the "enemy"? Millions of arab muslims in Israel proper dont seem to agree with you.

- "The Hell of Israel Is Better than the Paradise of Arafat"

‘Abd ar-Razzaq ‘Abid of Jerusalem's Silwan neighborhood pointed dubiously to "what's happening in Ramallah, Hebron, and the Gaza Strip" and asked if the residents there were well off. A doctor applying for Israeli papers explained:

The whole world seems to be talking about the future of the Arabs of Jerusalem, but no one has bothered asking us. The international community and the Israeli Left seem to take it for granted that we want to live under Mr. Arafat's control. We don't. Most of us despise Mr. Arafat [/b]and the cronies around him, and [b]we want to stay in Israel. At least here I can speak my mind freely without being dumped in prison, as well as having a chance to earn an honest day's wage.[6]

In the colorful words of one Jerusalem resident, "T[b]he hell of Israel is better than the paradise of Arafat[/b]. We know Israeli rule stinks, but sometimes we feel like Palestinian rule would be worse."

Note that Jerusalem there is added in brackets - an indication that IT WAS NOT THE INTENDED NAME WHEN THAT VERSE WAS FIRST REVEALED BUT HAS BEEN FRAUDULENTLY INCLUDED BY YOUR TRANSLATORS.

Note also that the ORIGINAL entry was "to the farthest place of prostration" since there was NOTHING like masjid al aqsa when Quran 17 was allegedly revealed. That again is a recent insertion by your deceitful translators.

Every muslim HAS BEEN LIED TO that masjid al aqsa is the sacred mosque in jerusalem . . . that is the temple site of the jews . . . a fact acknowledged by even muslims and atheists. There is a reason that it is still refered to as the temple mount today instead of masjid al aqsa.

What a fool. From Makkah to the mosque in Libya or Egypt is even longer . . .

Jerusalem is for the jews.

the path of lies, forgery and dishonesty? No thank you.

And? what does this prove? Have you also failed to see the millions of Jews who daily pray at the western wall of their ancient temple? Let them have their land to restore their temple you violent frauds and thieves. there is enough land in Saudi Arabia to rebuild your false mosque.

You will know by now i am not really the type that likes to keep going round a circle in arguement and i dont argue to win an arguement. Are you the one to tell muslims about what is holy to them? The prophet (PBUH) said in an hadith sahih that there are three main holy sites in this dDeen and the first is haram as shareef in Makkah and if a muslims does salah in this masjid he gets 100000 rewards , the second is masjid nabawi in madeenah and if a muslim does salah in this he gets 10,000 rewards and the last is, praying at the al aqsa site you get a reward of 1,000.

If Jerusalam wasn’t important how come Umar conquered it, why did Salahudeen Al Ayoubi fight to capture back Jerusalem?

You said al aqsa is not mentioned in the quran when you know the first verse in Surah 17 mentions al aqsa. It will be important to bring to your attention that as far as I know madeena is not mentioned anywhere in the quran whereas al aqsa is mentioned by name.

But i thoguht in my earlier post i categorically stated it is not a religous obligation to visit Jerusalem or Madeenah , what is compulsory is Hajj to to the haram in Makkah, so i do not get your point.

Excellent verbal gymnastics that in my opinion depicts your posts here on NL. You and i know i do not throw insults but same cannot be said of you unfortunately David.

We know this as patently false. Al Aqsa was in the hands of Jordan from 1949 to 1967, it WAS NEVER regarded as a "holy site" in Islam. Infact Jordan prefered to base its own capital in Amman instead of east Jerusalem . . . which was nothing but a backwater, its roads paved with gravestones from Jewish cemetaries. It was not until Israel captured al aqsa that it suddenly became a "holy site".

Its funny that such a "holy site" IS NOT ONCE MENTIONED IN THE QURAN. No muslims went there (except mohammad's false claim) . . . there were ONLY christian pilgrimages to Jerusalem.

Muslims have been going on pilgrimage to TWO sites in Saudi Arabia . . . NEVER have they gone on pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

They havent . . . except when the muslims first conquered Jerusalem around 690 AD. During the Ottoman empire . . . Jerusalem was widely regarded as a waste land. There are newspaper articles and eyewitness accounts as early as the 1800s to back up this fact.

The muslim "concern" over Jerusalem has ALWAYS strangely coincided with when the Jews were in control.

This makes your earlier claims even more absurd. You dont need to "increase awareness" of the holy sites in Mecca and Medina . . . why do muslims need to be begged to be aware that Jerusalem is equally as important to them?

Besides historical sites, christians have no stake in Jerusalem. The Jews have a stake there because it has been their undivided capital for 3000 yrs and the site of the al aqsa is the site of the temple of the Jews. A fact widely acknowledged even by murderous muslims.

Actually it brings out a very important but unpleasant fact to you . . . that Jerusalem is not important to muslims unless Jews are controlling it.

We dont need insults to point out the truth. But you need insults to sustain a lie.

There are three main holy sites in islam and everyone knows it is al aqsa, Haram in Makkah and Masjid nabawi in Medinah.

Going on piligrimage to Makkah is a religous duty and one of the 5 pillars of islam wheareas going to Masjid nabawi and alaqsa isnt a compulsory religous obligation.

Muslims over the years have visited jerusalem but nothing compare to the scale of Makkah for obvious reasons so any intelligent person will find it easy to sum up the reasons. Encouraging muslims to visit jerusalem is to increase the awareness of the importance of the holy site to muslims , just as christians and jews hold it important likewise. This thread sounds childish to me to be honest and dont think there is nothing to debate here or argue about rather we will just try to explain it as it is.

Lets see if the respondents will hold their flame and rein in their insults.
