The Hadith of the Gharqad Tree and the Jews

Bismillah

tree1.jpg

This is a picture of the famous Gharqad tree (or Boxthorn tree in English) that will not speak out to the Muslim in the battles towards the end of time with the Jews.

Our Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) said in a famous hadith:

“Judgment Day will come only when the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, until the Jew hides behind the tree and the stone, and the tree and the stone say: ‘Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah (SWT), there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him’ – except for the Gharqad tree.”

I found an interesting transcription of a conversation about this hadith that I thought I would share with you:

Khaled Al-Qudha: The decisive battle between the Jews and us will take place on the Jordan River, Allah (SWT) willing. This is inevitable. This is a hadith of the Prophet, who does not talk idly.

Host: Did the hadith relate to the battle’s outcome as well?

Khaled Al-Qudha: Of course. “Until the Jew hides…” – because, as is well known, the Jews only fight from behind walls, when they are hiding. They don’t fight face to face. That’s why the tree and the stone will talk and say things.

Host: The hadith says: “The Muslims will kill them…” So this will be a victory of the Muslims.

Khaled Al-Qudha: Yes, and an overwhelming defeat for all the Jews, Allah (SWT) willing. And this is not at all difficult for Allah (SWT).

This battle will take place. It is inevitable. Even if we go to Oslo, and so on, the battle must take place. The Jews know this, and that’s why they plant a lot of Gharqad trees. They know the hadith.

‘Ali Al-Faqir: They surround their settlements with Gharqad trees.

That explains all those Gharqad trees, but what of the stones and trees talking? Is this to be interpreted literally?

‘Ali Al-Faqir: One may ask: “How can a tree possibly talk? The hadith means that we should fight them with sticks and stones.” This is not true. We either accept these things as fact or as a metaphor. If you cannot accept it as a fact then it’s a metaphor. As long as it is impossible to accept the facts…

But brothers, the Prophet has told us that the time will come when man will talk without using his voice – the cell-phone, the cordless phone. This cordless phone – where did it come from? From the earth. Plastic comes from petroleum. The wires, the iron, and the copper – where do they come from? From the earth. Furthermore, some communication devices are now made of wood. It is not impossible that “the tree and the stone will speak” refers to the advanced scientific instruments that warn you about people. Today you have, for example, early warning stations in Sinai. Early warning stations exist in the Golan. They give the Israelites information about the other side’s movements.

Host: Sir, this is if we interpret (the hadith) metaphorically. But isn’t it possible that the tree and stone will actually talk? That the tree itself will talk, and the stone itself will talk?

‘Ali Al-Faqir: Sir, it has been proven scientifically that the trees and the stones have languages of their own. But we don’t have the ability to invent the instruments that will convey the tree’s voice and the stone’s voice to us.

Science has progressed so much that there are instruments that are placed in gardens. The plant produces certain waves, which are received by the instrument, and the plant says: “I am thirsty, water me, I am sick, heal me.”

……

It would be a very interesting study to see how many of these trees have been planted in Occupied Palestine by the Yahood.

    But a God is a perception and can represent what you think is God. It appears that either Muslims or Jews are in fact speaking of two understandings of what God is. So the God of Islam or the God of Jewish faith, which are seen as one in the same, are really two perceptions of God. Of course, there is only one God of Abraham. But someone is falsely representing who he is based off false teaching.

  • Jeff Morton

    Show me where it says to kill Christians in the Quran. Christ is one of your prophets. Some of us are non trinitarian and other than this non sensical violence we don’t have that many differences from the actual teachings of the Quran. Yeh you believe the Crucifixion was a hoax, we don’t, so we too should be killed. My five yr old son needs to be killed too, right. You are insane, and you have been brainwashed by a false idol.

  • Jeff Morton

    I do agree that no man has the right to confine people to a certain district, but isn’t the ignorance of both parties, who have allowed men’s fallacies to become a doctrine of God, also fueling this. God is a peaceful, forgiving god, His wrath is perpetuated by our ignorance to His will. We are all his children, or in Islam His creation..don’t really see the difference. Innocent blood is that if the innocent, not one that was born of Islam or Jewish. Our innocence is determined by our obedience to God. Muhhamed said wipe away the Jews, God said thou shall not kill. God is perfect, Man is flawed. There needs to be tolerance and willingness to remove God from the equation and use the gift God gave us, which is the knowledge of good and evil, we all know that killing is bad. He gave you that knowledge. This false idolatry is a trick mastered by the devil and God is watching to test us as to His will and our obedience to the True Word.

  • Jeff Morton

    No Jesus was sent to all, the poor, the lepper, the blind, the tax collector…can you show me where Mohammed reached out to these people. Islam does recognize Jesus as a prophet, so you cannot deny Him.

  • Jeff Morton

    It appears that many Muslims are not against killing innocent people. Or people who claim to be Muslims.

  • Jeff Morton

    Christians know plenty…they also know that we should love each other and not kill each other, as all of our Allah (SWT)’s have said, because we all follow Moses as a prophet. The first commandment of God. We choose to remain away from this non sensical violence because the Truly Perfect man, set the example for how we live to please The Lord. And yes their are more commandments then ten as the Quran said, Jesus came to make what was once forbidden, lawful. He also came to declare new commandments mainly “Love your Brother”, the Quran recognized Jesus as a Prophet so what did God just change His mind in 400 years. Don’t love your brother, kill your enemy. It’s so unfortunate that the injeel has been lost, because if it is true it would teach you that barbarism and violence is not by the Will of Allah (SWT).

  • Jeff Morton

    Many Christians see Christ not as god but the savior of men. He was willed to perfection in the eyes of The Lord, so in worshipping Him we are directly worshipping Allah (SWT) or the Almighty. Jesus even spoke of sitting to the right of His Father’s throne. He said fear my Father, He didn’t say fear me. Many worship God through Him, Because God cannot be understood, and is beyond all reason we can fathom. But Jesus was the perfect man and He showed us what divinity is and He is also recognized as the last prophet and to be aware of false idols to come. Like people claiming to split the moon in half, or talking to trees. We worship His walk through life as divine, as Jesus sent the one true messenger, and as far as the Son of God. We all see that we are children of God, but through our sin we have been disowned and need to die to be saved. When we learn to be perfect as He we will be Sons of God as well. But the almighty still remains the One true Living God of creation and Jesus is His divine messenger. Quran said God created man, so being sons or daughters or simply creations, could be cultural differences. The point is Jesus does not take away any Glory from the Almighty, but just the opposite because when we worship we have a way to understand the Will of God.

  • Jeff Morton

    Well said, love your enemies, and you will quickly be introduced to the One True Living God. His presence will be felt immediately when you surrender your hate and fill your heart with love and forgiveness. When your God is not a God of destruction you can place His perfect messenger at His side and equal in nature, because perfection does not require a struggle for power. But ultimately if the Father was destructive yes He has Authority over all things, but this is not His nature. We are a Monotheistic religion and all the Glory goes to the Father, the Almighty creator of all things, Jesus is an extension of His perfection. So again our worship of Christ is our way to worship the Almighty as He willed Christ to be as Himself and to have the same glory as Himself, immaculate perfection.

  • Jeff Morton

    Prophet messenger… Labels…yes Jesus prophecied in the canons, frequently in fact and not one ever was wrong. To peter, When the rooster crow, you will deny me a third time.” He spoke of His impending death and resurrection. He was given the divine spirit of His father to save us from ourselves. Remember, He said “only through me, shall you reach the Kingdom of God” he is not saying He is the almighty, He is saying, follow my ways and live according to my teaching and on the day of Judgment you will be preserved for all eternity.

  • Jeff Morton

    No the reply saying I don’t believe you are not a Jew either. That is what he is referring too. I hope you find the Messiah, He is.

  • Jeff Morton

    Pure bigotry…we all have them within our faiths I hope that is something we all can agree upon

  • Jeff Morton

    How am I Jewish, I believe in the Messiah. Jews didn’t have faith, many by the stubborn traditions they had manipulated through Moses and Abrahams laws. When we converted to Christians, Jews and Christians became fundamentally different in belief systems. Don’t think I have a problem with Jews, but I am a Christian not a Jew. But we all do have roots in Judaism. Meaning Christian, Jewish, and Muslim.

  • Jeff Morton

    Is anybody thinking about this argument in the larger context. Are any of us supposed to be so concerned for material things, in this case land. How many people have died in vain for a piece of land? Were brothers and sisters of Gods creation, share the land. So sad that people bicker over this and overlook the goodness and guidance that exists within these books.

  • Jeff Morton

    That is for Allah (SWT) to determine. Do not play God. What needs paid to Allah (SWT), let Allah (SWT) decide. That is why we have a day of decision. If we all continue to retaliate and justify it in the name of God, be assured that our judgement will be severe. Afghanistan was an afterthought of America until we were attack by cowards who shed innocent blood of innocent people. Many of which were Muslim too, and children. Within Afghanistan the people were being oppressed, killed by these so called Muslims. I am not supporting the war, but don’t play victim here. We were attacked first. That was a truly evil act and didn’t even attack a military, but purely civilian crowds.

  • Jeff Morton

    Yeah we tried to help them protect their lands, and now look how we get paid back. Islamists who follow the Quran, must stop allowing these infidels to define their religion as one of evil acts.

  • Jeff Morton

    Probably because the culture surrounding Islam is one of aggression, hatred and destruction. The doctrines of the Quran do not support this and your fellow brethren are indoctrinating with false ideologies that’s ends are political power, and terrorism. Pakistan has them. It is not a Muslim thing it is simply a technology thing combined with international security.

    The Gospel of Judas is a Gnostic text. In the Gnostic texts I have read, Sakla is another name for Jehovah, the evil demiurge who created matter. This name was given to him by his mother, who then called him “Sakla” because he claimed to be the only God.

    I did not find the word “satan” in the Gospel of Judas, by the way.

    Get facts before accusing

  • DCP the Lesser

    Don’t know why you are copy/pasting this coined response to me. I’m not the one claiming all Muslims are terrorists. In fact, I oppose such a blatantly false idea. I’m the one calling for jihad against terrorists for making Islam look bad in the eyes of the West.

    But, as to those being involved in the second World War, Muslim nations indeed were allies to Hitler’s Nazi Germany. Look it up. Worse, Hitler’s Mein Kampf in Arabic is a best-seller in Islamic lands. That is most unfortunate but true.

    And, as to those involved in the slave trade, Muslims indeed were involved in the capturing and selling of African and other slaves after conquests and afterward. Look it up.

  • rafiq

    whatever you are trying to do is just writing out of contest and writing your own interpretation to deceive others . But you can never deceive Muslims . As usual you kafir ur plans Will fail . Allah (SWT) is best of plan. Better you first know what’s in your book .

  • DCP the Lesser

    Nope. Not out of context. I read the Qur’an regularly.

    You should, too. You need to read each Surah in chronological order, too. So many Muslims are exceeding the limits and many disbelieve much of what is recorded in the Qur’an. If not so, why are they not living witnesses to the truths of the Qur’an? No, instead they persecute those of other religions, including the peoples of the book, they treat not women with the respect due to them, and even in Saudi Arabia, they are still debating whether women can drive cars. Please… Go read Al Isra’ for yourself.

    May Allah (SWT) guide u to do more research and guide others. An xcelent explanation on the hadith

  • DCP the Lesser

    Yes, certainly more research needs to be done because not enough was done this time around. The gharqad is the boxthorn, which is spread throughout the entire world in several species. It isn’t an exclusively Jewish tree at all. Evidence suggests that the person who quoted this Hadith made it up, and that he was known for making up Hadith to entertain others.

    While this teaching is the most central to the Qur’an, it is important to live not only by that but by the other tenets of the Qur’an as well. The Middle East would be a better place if the governments of men there lived by all these tenets and not just by a few taken out of context.
