for the believers (the non-kafir)
Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) said: The Last Hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews. Sahih Muslim
Let us be real about this point before anything else. This is to alert us to the point that all the dialologues and trialogues will be fruitless, in the end we will be fighting these kuffar and if what is happening to the Palestinian people is not enough to alert us to who they are and the Christians who protect them, we need to rethink what we have been studying dear Muslims.
Narrated Aisha and Ibn Abbas
On his death-bed Allah's Apostle put a sheet over his face and when he felt hot, he would remove it from his face. When in that state (of putting and removing the sheet) he said, "May Allah's Curse be on the Jews and the Christians for they build places of worship at the graves of their prophets." (By that) he intended to warn (the Muslim) from what they (i.e. Jews and Christians) had done. Sahih Bukhaari He only cursed the disbelievers. The kuffar and insitsted that the Believers (MUSLIMS) not imitate them in their practices. So many ahaadith show that he commands us to be opposite of the Christians and Jews.
We should note here as well that the primary reason Allaah shows any real regard for the Jews and Christians has nothing to do with what they call themselves and has everything to do with what HE calls them. He gives them some regard because their predecessors really did have a book from Allaah and you should look carefully in the Qur'aan to see how important Allaah's Books are to Him. So they are treated better than other kuffar, but they are mushrikeen no less.
I asked my father, "Was the Verse: 'Say: (O Muhammad) Shall We tell you the greatest losers in respect of their deeds?'(18.103) revealed regarding Al-Haruriyya?" He said, "No, but regarding the Jews and the Christians, for the Jews disbelieved Muhammad and the Christians disbelieved in Paradise and say that there are neither meals nor drinks therein. Al- Hururiyya are those people who break their pledge to Allah after they have confirmed that they will fulfill it, and Sad used to call them 'Al-Fasiqin (evildoers who forsake Allah's obedience)." Sahih Bukhaari This is the crucial back breaking hadith. This teaches you the the Jews and Christians, by definition are disbelievers (kuffar) If one of them hears from teh da'wah and accepts the deen he/she becomes a believer if they don't they REMAIN a kafir. If they do not get the da'wah they already by definition disbelieve in Allaah's Messenger (SAWS) and we really should look carefully to see what really is going to be there excuse with Allaah for why they worshiped His Messenger Isa? They can tell Him Abdul Malik did not tell me about you. He might have a case against Abdul Malik, but from the following hadith, it won't get him off.
Now, dear Muslims, I am going to highlight a few words in this hadith in the hopes that it will help us. Inshaa' Allaah
Narrated Abu Said Al Khudri
We said, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall we see our Lord on the Day of Resurrection?" He said, "Do you have any difficulty in seeing the sun and the moon when the sky is clear?" We said, "No." He said, "So you will have no difficulty in seeing your Lord on that Day as you have no difficulty in seeing the sun and the moon (in a clear sky)." The Prophet then said, "Somebody will then announce, 'Let every nation follow what they used to worship.' So the companions of the cross will go with their cross, and the idolators (will go) with their idols, and the companions of every god (false deities) (will go) with their god, till there remain those who used to worship Allah, both the obedient ones and the mischievous ones, and some of the people of the Scripture. Then Hell will be presented to them as if it were a mirage. Then it will be said to the Jews, 'What did you use to worship?' They will reply, 'We used to worship Ezra, the son of Allah.' It will be said to them, 'You are liars, for Allah has neither a wife nor a son. What do you want (now)?' They will reply, 'We want You to provide us with water.' Then it will be said to them 'Drink,' and they will fall down in Hell (instead). Then it will be said to the Christians, 'What did you use to worship?'
They will reply, 'We used to worship Messiah, the son of Allah.' It will be said, 'You are liars, for Allah has neither a wife nor a son. What: do you want (now)?' They will say, 'We want You to provide us with water.' It will be said to them, 'Drink,' and they will fall down in Hell (instead).
Narrated Abu Huraira
Allah's Apostle was asked about the offspring of the pagans. He said, "Allah knows what they would have done (were they to live)."
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "No child is born but has the Islamic Faith, but its parents turn it into a Jew or a Christian. It is as you help the animals give birth. Do you find among their offspring a mutilated one before you mutilate them yourself?" The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! What do you think about those (of them) who die young?" The Prophet said, "Allah knows what they would have done (were they to live)." Sahih Bukhaari.
Narrated Thabit bin Ad Dahhak
(who was one of the companions who gave the pledge of allegiance to the Prophet underneath the tree (Al-Hudaibiya)) Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever swears by a religion other than Islam (i.e. if somebody swears by saying that he is a non-Muslim e.g., a Jew or a Christian, etc.) in case he is telling a lie, he is really so if his oath is false, and a person is not bound to fulfill a vow about a thing which he does not possess. And if somebody commits suicide with anything in this world, he will be tortured with that very thing on the Day of Resurrection. And if somebody curses a believer, then his sin will be as if he murdered him. And whoever accuses a believer of Kufr (disbelief), then it is as if he killed him." Sahih Bukhaari
