Comments by Zia H Shah MD, Chief Editor of the Muslim Times:
Please read the first few verses of Sura Bani Israel (No:17) in the holy Quran to review the mention of Babylonian conquest:
We declared to the Children of Israel in the Scripture, ‘Twice you will spread corruption in the land and become highly arrogant.’
When the first of these warnings was fulfilled, We sent against you servants of Ours with great force, and they ravaged your homes. That warning was fulfilled, but then We allowed you to prevail against your enemy. We increased your wealth and offspring and made you more numerous––whether you do good or evil it is to your own souls––and when the second warning was fulfilled [We sent them] to shame your faces and enter the place of worship as they did the first time, and utterly destroy whatever fell into their power.
Your Lord may yet have mercy on you, but if you do the same again, so shall We: We have made Hell a prison for those who defy [Our warning]. (Al Quran 17:4-8)
Babylonian conquest is the first of the two corruptions and the second one is the conquest by Romans in 70 AD. These verses also carry a warning for the nation of Israel to be compassionate and just.
