Does the Qur’an Prophesise the establishment and future destruction of Israel?

BY NABEEL ALKHALIDY. THIS HAS BEEN REPRODUCED FROM THE SIBAWAY INSTITUTE. This tafseer shows how the Qur’an prophesies the establishment of  the Zionist state of Israel and its future destruction at the hands of the believers. Israel will never be challenged or removed by the current regimes in the Muslim world who are its biggest protectors. Rather only with their removal and replacement with a Khilafah will the Muslims of Palestine finally find the justice they have been waiting decades for.

Tafseer: “Surely I am very near”

BY ABU YUSUF وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِى عَنِّى فَإِنِّى قَرِيبٌ ۖ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ ٱلدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ ۖ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا۟ لِى وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا۟ بِى لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ And when My servants ask you concerning Me, then surely I am very near; I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he calls on Me, so they should answer My call and believe in Me that they may walk in the right way. [2:186]
