Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Member of National Assembly (MNA) Asma Qadeer, while speaking in the National Assembly, said that following the teachings and practices of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), we should also sign deals with Jews.
Addressing the House, she discussed the Kaaba of Muslims and Jews stating that when Allah (SWT) asked the Muslims to pray to face towards Makkah from Baitul Muqaddas, he ended the conflict between Muslims and Jews.
“According to my limited knowledge, Allah in that order decided that Masjid Aqsa will be Qibla of Jews and Makkah of Muslims,” Asma Qadeer said, adding that on this point the differences between these two religions should be ended.
She further said that even Prophet (PBUH) and Hazrat Ali (RA) also stated that you should make your enemies your friends and the best precedent over the issue was set by Prophet (PBUH) himself when he worked alongside Jews in Medina.
Talking about Prophet Ibrahim (RA), Hadeed said that during every Namaz we send Durood on Hazrat Ibrahim (RA) and his children which includes Bani Israel because the clan was derived from the son of Hazrat Ishaq (RA), who was the son of Hazrat Ibrahim’s (RA).
“I just want to say that scholars should find a verse in the Quran to unite Muslims and other religions including Jews so that humankind can become peaceful and Muslims no longer have to face atrocities in Yemen, Syria and other parts of the world,” she said.
“Just like Prophet (PBUH) signed several treaties with Jews, our parliamentarians and lawmakers should also work on these lines so that Muslim being prosecuted across the world can have peace and stability,” she asserted.
