Jerusalem is the capital of the future Caliphate

Yunus Ibn Maysarah relates that the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said,

هَذَا الأَمْرُ كَائِنٌ بَعْدِي بِالْمَدِينَةِ ، ثُمَّ بِالشَّامِ ، ثُمَّ بِالْجَزِيرَةِ ، ثُمَّ بِالْعِرَاقِ ، ثُمَّ بِالْمَدِينَةِ ، ثُمَّ بِبَيْتِ الْمَقْدِسِ ، فَإِذَا كَانَ بِبَيْتِ الْمَقْدِسِ فَثَمَّ عُقْرُ دَارِهَا ، وَلَنْ يُخْرِجَهَا قَوْمٌ فَتَعُودَ إِلَيْهِمْ أَبَدًا

“This matter (the Caliphate) will be after me in Madinah, then in Al-Sham, then in the peninsula, then in Iraq, then in Madinah, then in Bait ul-Maqdis (Jerusalem). If it is in Bait ul-Maqdis, its home country is there, and if any people expel it, it will not return there forever.” [Ibn Asakir, 368]

This blessed city belongs to Allah and He has given it to the last ummah – the Muslim Ummah to rule with justice.

قالَ موسىٰ لِقَومِهِ استَعينوا بِاللَّهِ وَاصبِروا ۖ إِنَّ الأَرضَ لِلَّهِ يورِثُها مَن يَشاءُ مِن عِبادِهِ ۖ وَالعاقِبَةُ لِلمُتَّقينَ

Moses said to his people, ‘Seek help in Allah and be steadfast. The earth belongs to Allah. He bequeaths it to any of His slaves He wills. The successful outcome is for those who have taqwa.’

(Al-A’raaf, 7:128)
