On Friday, September 23, 2022, Dr. Nassar Al-Qaram, the head of the Nablus Shari'a Court of Appeals, delivered a sermon in the West Bank city of Ramallah. Dr. Al-Qaram said that in the battle against the Israeli "occupation", the believers are guaranteed a positive outcome, because they will either be victorious or they will die as martyrs. He said that the battle against the "occupation" will continue until Judgement Day, and he claimed that Israel even takes "into account" unborn Palestinian babies because it knows that they will one day fight against it. Later in the sermon, Dr. Al-Qaram described the Prophet Muhammad's battles against the Jews in the Arabian Peninsula, and he said that the Jews are "the people of war and corruption". Dr. Al-Qaram's sermon was aired on Palestine TV. For more about Dr. Nasser Al-Qaram, see MEMRI TV Clips Nos. 9369 and 9545.
Dr. Al-Qaram: "In the battle against the occupation and against the enemies of Allah, a believer will attain one of two good things – victory or martyrdom. In both cases, we are victorious, triumphant.
"The battle against the occupation will continue until Judgement Day. It is an open battle, on all fronts, in all places, and on all levels. We are all under the occupation old and young. Even fetuses in the womb are taken into account by the occupation. On day one, they are registered in the occupation's computer, and are assigned an ID with a number. They are taken into account because their day in battle will come, and they will fight this occupation. Fetuses in their mothers' wombs are murabiteen who challenge this occupation.
"Martyrs do not seek this world. Some of you want this word and some of you want the World to Come. Martyrs see this world as cheap. Everything is cheap to them. All they want is to meet Allah and His Messenger.
"In the Surat Al-Isra, the Quran talks about the Israelites' corruption and about the promise that we will vanquish them. [It says:] 'Then, when the promise of the Hereafter comes to pass, you will be disgraced, and they will enter the mosque [in Jerusalem] as they had entered it the first time, and they will completely destroy all that falls in their hands.' This is a promise made by Allah.
"Several promises of confrontation with the Jews were fulfilled in the Quran, and this is the promise that is yet to be [fulfilled]. The first promise came following the battle of Badr. When the Muslims defeated the tribe of Quraysh in the battle of Badr, the Jews of the Banu Qaynuqa tribe did not like the Muslims' victory. So they sent a message to [Muhammad], saying: 'Muhammad, you may have fought the boys of the Quraysh tribe, who have no experience in war and who do not know how to fight, but if you fight us, you shall see that we are real men.' Why? Because they are the people of war and corruption.
"[The Quran says:] 'Whenever they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it, and they spread corruption across the land.' What was Allah's response? The angel Jibril descended and said to Muhammad: 'Tell the infidels [that they] shall be overcome and herded to Hell – what a miserable resting place.'
"So the Prophet Muhammad laid siege to the Banu Qaynuqa tribe and banished them.
"Then came the Battle of the Trench, when [the Jews] violated the pact and betrayed the Prophet Muhammad. When the battle was over, Jibril and [other] angels came to the Prophet Muhammad. They said: 'Oh Messenger of Allah, the angels have not yet laid down their weapons.' [Muhammad] asked them: 'What do you want?' They answered: 'To fight the Jews of the Banu Qurayza tribe.' So the Prophet issued a statement to his companions: 'None of you shall pray the afternoon prayer unless it is in [the stronghold] of the Banu Qurayza tribe.' End of story.
"So he fought [the Jews of Banu Qurayza], besieged them, and expelled them, too. Then came the [battle against the Jews] of Khaybar. After the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah, the Prophet conquered Khaybar, because [the Jews there] violated their pact with him. The Muslims were compensated. Instead of Mecca, they conquered Khaybar."
