Fulfilment of a modern pro-Zionist prophecy in the Quran I’ll start this with the correct definition first. Zionism = the idea of and the fact of the return of the remnant of Israelites (known by the name of the majority tribe of “Judeans/Jews”) back to their ancestral, promised and historical land. This is a complete proof of a prophecy and support of Zionism in the Quran. It might look long, but it's not, please read along. Thus far, it seems that I am the only one who discovered this proof down to the original wording in Arabic. If you Google such terms as "Quran is Zionist" or "Zionism in the Quran", you won't find this exact proof, other than in a forum I posted it in in 2011 and then updated in 2019 with an undisputable version (which you will see here). Other than that, you will only find half-proofs that can be easily refuted or based on faulty translations! As you will see below, the majority of the translations of the Quran into English and other languages from its original Old Arabic language in which it was originally written down, mis-translate a key prophetic pro-Zionist verse, literally prophesying the return of Israelite diasporas out of all the nations back to their historical, promised land, to hide Quran's clear support and prophecy of Zionism, contrary to Quranic prohibition of and warnings against (mis-translating) or twisting God's word out of context. These translators have done what God condemns many times in the Quran itself – twisting/mistranslating words/verses to say/mean something else from their true meaning/what they really say. There is also a hadith (story) where Muhammad is asked how are Jews not worshipping God, he says they are following their rabbis' interpretations of Tanakh (which isn’t really true, the Oral Law aka Talmud explains the Written Law aka Tanakh [which includes the Torah], but this hadith is sahih/real, as it is in line with the assertions found in the Quran regarding Judaism). Whether the mullahs'/sheikhs' interpretation of these Quranic verses in original Arabic, or whether the current Arabic-language Qurans, twisted the prophetic verse by directly changing the words in it to make the verse say something other than what it originally said; or whether the mis-translators into English and Russian, and probably all other language mis-translations of this verse, did so deliberately -- all these cases are condemned by the above hadith and the Quran itself many, many times. Below is a website with a full copy of Quran translated word-by-word from its original Old Arabic to English, and the webmasters have done a great favour to everyone by providing a concordance of each Quranic word – showing all the other places in the Quran where the same Arabic word is used (which can be accessed by clicking on the word), so that by seeing the same Arabic word within each context/verse in the Quran, the proper meaning can be arrived at! That’s what concordance means, it’s a list showing all the places where a certain word occurs in a text, so that each context in which that certain word is used can be known. HERE IS THE PROOF, word by word, in http://corpus.quran.com/wordbyword.jsp? : Go to the above link. Click on drop down menu, and find chapter 17 and verse 4. Then, in verse 5, notice the key Arabic word "wadu" (promise/warning). Continue to verse 6. Then, in verse 7, notice the TWO Arabic key words "wadu" (promise/warning) and "l-akhirati" (the last [second] of the promises/warnings). Read verse 8. Now, jump to verse 104, where God used the same Arabic words - "l-akhirati" and "wadu" - and also the Arabic word "lafifan" (click on it, and you will see the meanings of "entwined [of multiple parts]/thick foliage/wound around each other"), to say the Israelites (of which Jews, which historically also included some other tribes [Benjamin, Simon, Levi at the least], are the remaining, identifiable tribe today) will be brought back to the Promised Land (as they were in verse 6, true to history, from Babylonian Captivity), after the last ("l-akhirati") promise/warning ("wadu") comes to pass, with the LAST in-gathering being from out of multiple nations (verse 104 - "lafifan": entwined of/from multiple peoples/nations) in which they were living in their exile from the Promised Land. So, the last promise/warning lasted for almost 1900 years (Second Temple was destroyed in 70 AD by Romans). The Quranic prophecy refers to the "Children of Israel", but given the context of the Quranic verses, refers to the Southern Kingdom (Judah, and Benjamin, Levi, and Simon, which assimilated to Judah and started being identified as Judeans/Jews under Roman occupation and after the exile) and not to the Northern Kingdom (a.k.a. 10 Lost Tribes), who were exiled by Assyria and were lost to history before the destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem, assimilating to various populations of the Middle East and beyond, and losing their distinct identity as Israelites. It was a Temple and capital (Jerusalem) which these 10 Tribes never recognized, and fell into idol worship, for which God caused them to be exiled and lose their self-identity as Israelites, except a few of them left in place (Samaritans). This is proved in the Quran by its description of the "first warning" as being the destruction of the First Temple along with the first exile and captivity (Babylonian Captivity) of the remaining tribes, followed by the remaining tribes’ (Judah, Benjamin, Levites and Simonites) return to their land, and then "the second warning" as being the destruction of the Second Temple by Rome and the remaining tribes’ last and final exile – lasting almost 1900 years – followed by a prophecy in Surah 17:104 that, "when the second warning comes to pass (i.e. is over/behind them/has passed)", God will cause them to be brought back to their land out of all the countries where their exile took them (verbatim and literally - "INTERTWINED multitude/out of multitude of nations"). We can also corroborate the above proof with: 1. History/Reality, which shows the return of the remnant of Israelites (Jews/Judeans, but includes other assimilated tribes) as a "crowd/group - made/entwined - out of multiple parts/out of multiple nations" back to the Promised Land, and which shows Israel withstanding and successfully defending itself against a multitude of Arabic nations who declared war on it and tried to destroy it multiple times in its short history, beginning with its birth, which could only be by the will of God; 2. Logic. Looking at the other verses and then at 17:104, it could only make sense if it was prophesying the future return of the remnant of Israelites back to Israel; 3. Confirmation in the Tanakh/Bible. The Tanakh/Bible prophesies a future return of the remnant of Israelites back to the Holy Land. Read Deuteronomy 4:27, 28:64, 28:36; Leviticus 26:33; Jeremiah 16:13; Amos 9:9; and compare with Quran 2:97, 3:3, 4:47, 6:92, 37:37, and many other verses like it throughout it. Interestingly, the same site above which provides word-by-word translation, also provides the same MISTRANSLATIONS for those who find word-by-word translation tedious, including the front-page translation it provides at www.quran.com, and the 7 popular English translations at http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp (go to "English translation" on the left). You can also access another popular Islamic website at https://www.islamawakened.com/index.php/qur-an Click Islam Awakened on top menu and see literally dozens of MISTRANSLATIONS provided, the majority of which mis-translate the verse 17:104 in the Quran to say "Hereafter" or "Afterlife" or "World to come" (Judgement Day), while given the context and wording in previous verses, it should be translated as "last/final of the warnings". If anyone says "Israel was established by the hands of people, not God!", God also acts thru people/nations. Proof is that Judea was exiled 1900 years ago ALSO by the hands of people - the Romans - and if it wouldn't have been the will of God, it would not have happened, and God decrees failure or success in all matters, including when Israel successfully defended itself against many Arab nations. The concept that God also acts thru people/nations, is also backed up by the same Quranic verses I quoted above, and is also very frequently found in the Tanakh/Bible. (Side note: “Tanakh” is the Hebrew/Jewish term for the combination of all the books of the Torah, the books of the Prophets, and the books of Writings. “Bible” is the Christian term that includes the Tanakh [the original Christian Bibles had Greek translations of the Hebrew Tanakh] and additionally the Christian Holy Texts.) If anyone says "More than half of all Judeans in the world live outside Israel, so the prophecy is not fulfilled!", the fact is, it is in the process of being fulfilled, and half of it is already fulfilled, and if it wasn’t for the opposition and wars against Israel on all fronts from the Arab and Muslim countries/communities and their non-Muslim allies’ worldwide, it could have been fulfilled already! Such a reply also comes from ignorance of history – the expulsion of Jews from Judea, which the Romans then re-named to Palestine after the Philistines (a long-time enemy of the early Israelites) to spite/disrespect Judeans due to our multiple rebellions against Roman occupation of Judea, also happened in multiple waves! So this ingathering happening in multiple waves is a reflection of our exile having been in multiple waves! This is also supported by the prophecies in the Tanakh/Bible - Isaiah 43:6 and Psalm 107:3 (Psalms are called Zabur in the Quran). So the fact that more than half of all Judeans are still living outside of Israel does not refute the prophecies in the Tanakh and the Quran. All it means is that the first waves of our ingathering have already happened. Just as we were exiled in multiple waves, so will our ingathering back to our ancestral, Promised Land happen in multiple waves (and it already happened several times). From the beginnings of the re-birth of Israel up through today, Judeans from ALL countries where the exile took us have immigrated back to the Holy, Promised Land of our ancestors. As a matter of fact, the biggest reason why the majority of other Judeans are still living in the countries of our exile is because of the Arab, Muslim and their non-Muslim allies' resistance against Israel's very existence – whether militarily, politically, economically, judicially, verbally, or through any other means – and it all hinges upon the bedrock of the ignorant resistance: the so-called "Muslims'’ ignorance of the prophecy in the Quran, or wilful opposition to it, of the return of the remnant of the Israelites back to our ancestral, Promised Land from which we were exiled 1800-2000 years ago. + + + If anyone can successfully dispute this, please do so. I regret and have a lot of heartache and headache for not realizing for so long that I should have, and should, spread this. The main reason why I am spreading this, in addition to that it's the right thing to do, is because I deduced this proof 10 years ago when I was 22, and didn’t spread it, and I feel that, looking back, God sent me many signs, and I didn’t realize it, and finally punished me, and even then I didn’t realize it, and I feel keeps punishing me for keeping it to myself all this time. I feel very close to the Prophet Jonah’s story. This could have, can and will save many lives if the whole world knew about this, or even half of it, or at least half of all Muslims! When even 10% know about it, then most and then all knowing about it, is within easy reach!
