Yasir Qadhi’s statement that the Rabbis and Jews, “These are our brethren! These are our brethren! They are the REAL followers of Moses! They are the ones who make the Children of Israel proud!”

Yasir Qadhi misses the mark again―he contradicts the Qur’an and opposes the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) in his ‘end justifies the means’ political philosophy. He screams out in exultation of the Rabbis and Jews, “These are our brethren! These are our brethren! They are the REAL followers of Moses! They are the ones who make the Children of Israel proud!”
This is not the belief of the Muslims―this is not what the Qur’an teaches, nor is it from the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ). The REAL followers of Moses (peace be upon him) believe in Jesus son of Mary as the servant and Messenger of God, and they believe in Muhammad (ﷺ) as the servant and final Messenger of God―that is the religion of Islam.
Allah (ﷻ) said in the Qur’an: “And whoever desires other than Islam as religion―never will it be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter, he will be among the losers.” (3:85) And He (the Most High) said: “Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam) among the People of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and the Pagans will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creation.” (98:6)
So, how are the Jews who disbelieved in Jesus and Muhammad (and disbelieved in the Books revealed to these Prophets) be “the REAL followers of Moses”?! If they were [as Qadhi claims] the REAL followers of Moses (peace be upon him), they would follow the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) because that is what Moses (peace be upon him) would do, just as the Prophet (ﷺ) said: “I have certainly come to you with that which is pure and clear proof… By the One in whose Hand is my soul, even if Moses (peace be upon him) was alive, he would have no choice but to follow me.” (Imām Ahmad in al-Musnad, 3/387 no. 14859, graded authentic by al-Albānī)
Furthermore, “The Talmudic stories make fun of Jesus’ birth from a virgin, fervently contest his claim to be the Messiah… and maintain that he was rightfully executed as a blasphemer and idolater.” (Jesus in the Talmud, Peter Schäfer)
Our ‘brethren’ believe in all of God’s Prophets including Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them all). The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “By the One in whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, there is not a person from this nation, whether he is a Jew or a Christian, who hears of me, and then dies without believing in the message I was sent with except that he will be among the people of Hellfire.” (Muslim, no. 153)
