Dr. Abduljabbar Saeed, the Head of the Quran and Sunnah Department in Qatar University's Shari'a Faculty, said in a May 16, 2020 interview on Al-Jazeera Network (Qatar) that Allah will help the Muslims liberate every single centimeter of Palestine. He cited a hadith in which the Prophet Muhammad said that Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews, who will hide behind rocks and trees, which will in turn call out to the Muslims to kill the Jews hiding behind them. Dr. Saeed referred to a version of the hadith, in which a type of tree called a gharqad will not call out to the Muslims. He said that he rejects this version and that he believes that every rock and every tree will call out to the Muslims. In addition, Dr. Saeed said that victory will only be achieved through sacrifice of all that is precious and through the "blood of the martyrs and over the skulls of the enemies."

Abduljabbar Saeed: "The trust we put in Allah is always and forever great. We trust that Allah will restore us to our religion sooner rather than later and that we will liberate Palestine from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea, from its norther border with southern Lebanon to Um Al-Rashrash [Eilat] in southern Palestine. Palestine includes all its soil, every grain of its sand, its waters, its mountains, its rivers, and its deserts. We do not acknowledge any other form of Palestine and we will not accept the occupation's existence on a single centimeter of it under any circumstances.

"The Prophet Muhammad said: 'Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.' This is a promise made by Allah and His Messenger. [The Prophet said:] 'The Muslims will kill [the Jews], until the rocks and the trees say: 'Oh Servant of Allah, there is a Jews behind me, come and kill him.' As for the addition of 'except for the gharqad, which is one of the trees of the Jews' - I am one of the [scholars] who believe this part is not reliable. I believe that Imam Muslim quoted it in order to show that it is unreliable and therefore I believe that all the rocks and all the trees will be fighting the Jews along with the Muslims and will call upon the Muslims to kill the Jews. These are Allah's promises and laws that govern us.

"Victory will not come on a golden platter. Victory is achieved through the blood of martyrs and over the skulls of the enemies. Victory is achieved by sacrificing money, life, and all that is precious."
