The Miracles


Recently I read a book on our Nabi s.a.w. and today allow me to share about the miracles of Nabi s.a.w. Put aside business world and be with me just for few minutes to procrastinate about this heavenly topic.

It is clear that whoever has witnessed the condition of Rasulullah s.a.w.; whoever listens with attention to the Ahadith of Nabi s.a.w. character, habits, qualities, policies with people of different status and standings, his being accustomed to people of different temperements and how people became so captivated in following him; whoever is aware of those realities and truths which were uttered by his blessed tongue as an answer to the most difficult of questions, and whoever glances at his wonderful and amazing policies in human affairs and to the beautiful indications found in the explanation of apparent explanations, the basic knowledge of which the intelligent of the world have remained helpless – then without shadow of doubt, he will exclaim that these perfections cannot be attained by efforts and hardwork, nor by the management of any human power.

In fact, it is not possible for these things nor can it be conceived that they are found without any heavenly power and divine aid. This is apparent that divine aid and resultant perfections can never be attained by any liar or fraud. Nabi s.a.w. character and way of life are a clear proof of his truthfulness. A pure Bedouin (Badwi) on seeing Nabi s.a.w said, “This is not the face of a liar”. This village-dweller, on just seeing some qualities and virtues of Nabi s.a.w., gives testimony to his truthfulness. What will be the condition of that person who had witnessed Nabi’s s.a.w. character and who had experienced the different phases of Nabi’s s.a.w. purelife? At this juncture, many scholars have briefly written some qualities of Nabi s.a.w. so that one can know his model of perfect character and so that one can judge Nabi’s s.a.w. truthfulness, high status and magnificent glory of Allah swt that Allah swt has granted Nabi s.a.w. these perfections to the highest degree, whereas Nabi s.a.w. was Ummi (unlettered), he never learnt from anyone, nor did he study any books and neither did he travel anywhere in search of knowledge. He was raised and grew up in a group of an illiterate village-dwelling community. Together, with this, he was an orphan. The shadow of a compassionate father who normally makes effort in nurturing and teaching good manners had been lifted from before (his birth), Added to this, Nabi s.a.w. was reared in a poverty-stricken household in severe conditions. Then from where did Nabi s.a.w attain all these beautiful qualities, knowledge and recognition, knowledge of the angels and past Ambiya’ and the specialities of the Ambiya’? If there had not been clear revelation, then how could one with human abilities be successful in attaining these astounding perfections by his own efforts? If Nabi s.a.w. excellences were only these, and not even one miracle became apparent, then too, the truthfulness and honesty of Nabi s.a.w. is sufficient proof for Nabi s.a.w. being truthful. This is the special mercy and favour of Allah swt that he did not suffice only on these excellences, but made apparent on Nabi’s s.a.w. blessed hands such open mu’jizat (miracles), that just by seeing them there would not remain any doubt in the most foolish and ignorant person regarding the Nubuwwat and Risalat of Nabi s.a.w.

From amongst these mu’jizat (miracles), here I would like to share only those most famous and well-known and which are mentioned in the reliable and Sahih (authentic) books of Hadith. These are:

  1. When Quraish demanded a sign of Nabi s.a.w. Nubuwwat from him, then Allah swt split the moon in two for him.
  2. In Hadrat Jabir’s r.a.d. house, from a little food a whole group was satiated.
  3. In the house of Hadrat Talha r.a.d. during battle of Khandaq (the trench), a small amount of food was sufficient for a big jama’at (group pf people) through the blessings of Nabi s.a.w.
  4. Once a baby goat and flour less than 2 bowls sufficed for 80 men. In Dalailun-Nubuwwat of Baihaqi, according to narration of Hadrat Jabir r.a.d. 800 people being satiated has been mentioned and in Dalail-Abi Nu’aim 1000 have been mentioned.
  5. Once a few dates which Binte-Bashir held in her hands, sufficient to satiate an entire army, and some remained thereafter.
  6. Water flowed from between the fingers of Nabi s.a.w. from which a thirsty army drank to their fill and from which they all made wudu’ (ablution).

May Allah gives us strength to seek more knowledge regarding Sunnah of Rasulullah s.a.w. and live the way of Islam as the way of Life which has been shown by Nabi s.a.w. and sahabahs.
