In short: یهود as it is used in the Qur'an refers specifically to the Jews during the time of the Prophet, whereas بنی اسرائیل refers to all descendants of Israel. All یهود are بنی اسرائیل, but not all بنی اسرائیل are یهود. In long: After the reign of Solomon, the ancient Kingdom of Israel broke into two separate kingdoms; the southern kingdom comprised ...

They were preferred or made superior because they embraced religion and followed the Divine Prophets while other people lived in misled and ignorance. But once they started to misbehave by disobeying their Prophets and compromising their religion they instead invited God's wrath and condemnation. This is apparent in several Qur’anic verses condemning Jews ...

Bani Israel= race, Jews= religion That's the direct fact, but this doesn't answer why does Allah use both namings differently.

The verses claimed by Adwan are these: And We caused the people who had been oppressed to inherit the eastern regions of the land and the western ones, which We had blessed.

These two verses, and the ten or so before, and many subsequent verses, are detailing many of the stories of Bani Israeel at the time of Musa (alayhi salaam). This discourse details the escape of Bani Israeel from Fir'awn; the miraculous parting of the sea; their subsequent shirk with the golden calf, and repentance; their taking (and later breaking) of the ...

tl;dr version: This is a complex issue which requires an understanding of the exact terms under which God gave the Jews the land of Israel in the first place. In short, they probably don't have any divine claim on it until the Messiah explicitly gives it back to them. According to the Biblical record, the land of Israel was originally promised to the ...

The Jews say, "Ezra is the son of Allah "; and the Christians say, "The Messiah is the son of Allah ." That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved [before them]. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded? (Surat At-Tawbah 9/30) They have taken their scholars and monks as lords besides Allah , and [also] ...

I think you are referring to the Verse 47 in Surat al-Baqara (2:47) O Children of Israel! Just recall to mind My favor that bestowed upon you, and remember that I exalted you above all the peoples of the world First i think the Verses 40 -120 of the same Sura seem to explain this very clearly how Allah gave them favors and forgave their disbelieve ...

First of all, Judaism is the religion of Sons of Israel(Jacob), but some of them are not Jewish, it's like Arabs and Islam, Arabs are Muslim but they not all of them.

Well we don't run an IQ test based on Qur'an and Hadith even on a Muslim to determine if he/she is a Muslim or not. Just kidding, I mean to say, a community doesn't constantly keep track of ones (a so called Muulim's) activities whether he/she is Praying 5 times or not, fasting or not etc. But all we do as a community to accept one in the Muslim community is ...

Because the Majority of Bani Isra'eel were not believers, and because they had a mentality that they believe in only what their senses can perceive, they asked to see Allah, so Allah took them and then brought them back to life: ثُمَّ بَعَثْنَاكُم مِّن بَعْدِ مَوْتِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ This incident happened right after they got out of Egypt, and ...

This answer to the question What does the superiority of bani-israel (Children of Israel) over all beings mean? answers some aspects of the question above. But still I would like to answer the following in detail. O Children of Israel! Remember My (Allah's) favour wherewith I favoured you and how I preferred you to (all) creatures. (Qur'an 2:122) So, the ...

Many Muslim scholars have told me that the European Ashkenazi jews living in Israel today are not descendants of the Bani Israil but that the European Jews are descendants of Khazar converts whom converted to Talmudic Judaism around the 800 ad. This looks like a huge approximation of history. The jewish world population was already scattered around the ...

'All' of the Christians are not Bani Israel, just like all of the Muslims are not Bani Ishmael or even Arab, because several gentiles converted to Christianity at the hands of the disciples of Jesus and then the adoption of the religion by the Roman Empire, and later the preaching of Christian missionaries. Bani Israel is a lineage and not a religion. ...

To know that we have to see family tree of prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) (A.S.) Because we believe Ancient Israelites were originally are family of prophet Ibrahim (Abraham).

According to Hebrew law, the punishment for idol worship was death by stoning. When the Hebrews worshipped the calf, the entire people were guilty. So, according to the law, they were to sincerely repent and then execute the punishment for the crime which was to stone themselves to death. Repentance would restore their souls to Allah's favor thus saving them ...
