Muslims fighting the Jews before Qiyaamah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have been disturbed by this particular hadith:

The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (the Boxthorn tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews. (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim).Sahih Muslim, 41:6985, see also Sahih Muslim, 41:6981, Sahih Muslim, 41:6982, Sahih Muslim, 41:6983, Sahih Muslim, 41:6984, Sahih al-Bukhari, 4:56:791,(Sahih al-Bukhari, 4:52:177)

The thing is, I know what israel is doing is wrong but not all  jews are bad tbh, what have scholars said on this hadith?

Bismillaah

A: This will happen around the time of Isa (alaihis salaam). The ones that are not bad will accept the truth and hence will be Muslims.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
