THE RELIGIOUS AND HISTORICAL STATUS OF PALESTINE BETWEEN MUSLIMS AND JEWS: A RESEARCH AND COMPARATIVE STUDY
مسلمانوں اور یہودیوں کے مابین ارض فلسطین کی مذہبی اور تاریخی حیثیت:ایک تحقیقی و تقابلی جائزہ
The land of Palestine carries importance in terms of Abrahamic Prophets. In past, this land has been called “Canaanite Land” or “Holy/Sacred Land” for the three major Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In Judaism, it is believed as per Hebrew Bible that the God promised and bestowed this sacred land to Abraham (P.B.U.H) and his descendants. Around 333 B.C, this land was named “Palestine” under the occupation of Greeks. In 1200 B.C, when 12 tribes of Israel conquered Palestine, since then it has been called “the Land of Israel”. Thousands of Abrahamic prophets belong to this sacred land, their graves and remains make this land sacred for the believers of Abrahamic religion. The aim of my research is to study and give the academic perspective and research analysis over current regional conflict between Jews and Muslims on the Land of Palestine. In this research, I have attempted to carried out a detailed study on the historic significance of the Land of Palestine in Abrahamic books.
