What is the Sharee‘ah ruling on identifying the year 2044 as the year that will mark the end of the state of Israel, through the number of letters and chapters of the Quran and the number of verses?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His Slave and Messenger.


According to Sharee‘ah rules, it is impermissible to wade into the Quran without observing the fundamentals that were set by scholars for interpreting it and illustrating its miraculous nature.

Muslims must not preoccupy themselves with the date that will mark the end of Israel because Israel will definitely cease to exist one day. This is according to the Hadeeth that was narrated on the authority of Abu Hurayrah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him where the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, mentioned that the Hour will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them. [Muslim] Hence, it is a definite issue. The more important question is what have we prepared for that day? Have we fulfilled our duty towards our oppressed brothers in Palestine? Have we supported them and defended them against Jewish aggression?  In fact, this is the responsibility of all Muslims; each according to his own ability.

In a Hadeeth on the authority of Abu Hurayrah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said that anyone who dies without having gone or thought of going out for Jihaad (physically fighting in the battlefield) will die while being guilty of a branch of hypocrisy. [Muslim]

We ask Allaah The Almighty to guide Muslims back to their religion and to free Al-Aqsa Mosque from the evil schemes of the Jews.

Allaah Knows best.
