The people of Palestine are pure Arabs and original semites. It is Muslims who are the inheritors of Musa (Allah’s Mercy be upon him) and the inheritors of real Thourath that has not been changed. Muslims believe in all of the Prophets including Ibrahim, Musa, Isa and Muhammed (Peace and blessings be upon all of them).If the followers of Musa (Allah’s Mercy upon him)have been promised a right to Palestine in Thourath then the Muslims are the most worthy nation of this. When the Muslims conquered Palestine and drove out the Romans, Palestine and Jerusalem returned to Islam, religion of all Prophets (Peace be upon all of them). Therefore a call to the historical right to Palestine cannot be raised against Islamic Umma that believes in all the Prophets (Peace be upon all of them) and we make no distinction between them-3:84. So Palestine do not belong to Jews and Christians as the original Bible addresses the Muslims. “It is the religion of your fatherIbrahim (Allah’s Mercy upon him). It is He who have named you Muslims both before and in this(Quran).22:78.
Hope you will clarify.
I think we agree with almost all that you have written above, in particular the parts about the usage of the word Islam and Muslim in the Qur’an.
Perhaps the only part of your comments that needs a bit elaboration is the following:
If the followers of Musa (Allah’s Mercy upon him)have been promised a right to Palestine in Thourath then the Muslims are the most worthy nation of this.
Although overall, the above is correct, there is a delicate but important point that needs to be considered:
The promise to the followers of Musa (Bani Israel) was NOT an unconditional promise (as explained in the original answer). The promise was conditional to them remaining loyal to their God and observant to their religion.
It is therefore more accurate and enlightening to extend and elaborate the above sentence as follows:
If the followers of Musa (Allah’s Mercy upon him) have been promised a right to Palestine in Thourath, with the condition of them remaining loyal to God’s religion; then (given that they nullified this condition) the Muslims became the most worthy nation of this, but with the same condition.
