At this point I would like to bring to the notice of the reader
that the Prophet was granted many miracles by Allah (the Lord of the heavens and
the earth) and some of them are as follows: -
The Holy Qur’an is the living miracle bestowed by Allah upon the Prophet
(PBUH) and this Allah’s Book was revealed to him through the holy spirit
(Gabriel) and today 1400 years have passed and nobody has been able to
change a single letter or produce its imitation as it is said in the
Qur’an (See Sura Hijr, 15:9), and the statement of the Prophet
“Before me, every Prophet was given a miracle and they practiced it
during their life-time: i.e., Jesus used to cure the sick and make the dead
alive, etc., Moses was given the stick etc., and I have been given the
permanent miracle of the Qur’an till the Hour is established, so I hope
that my follower will be more in number than all the other apostles’ as my
miracle will last till the Day of Resurrection, and it is a Glorious Book;
when any one reads it, even if he is a pagan, etc., he is convinced that it
was not written by any human being or any created thing (angels, etc.,) but
it ifrom the Creator of the heavens anthe earth”
The splitting of the moon: Narrated Anas that the
Meccans requested Allah’s Apostle to show them a miracle, so he showed
them the splitting of the moon.
The crying of the stem of the date-palm tree in the Prophet’s Mosque:
Narrated Ilbn “Umar thghat
the Prophet used to deliver his Khutba (religious
talk) while leaning against a trunk of a date-palm tree. When he had the
pulpit made and used it instead, the trunk started crying and the Prophet
went to it, rubbing his hand over it (to stop its crying)
The flowing of the water from among the fingers of the Allah’s Apostle.
The Prophet‘s meals used to glorify Allah while he ate, and this
glorification was heard by the companions of the Prophet.
Stones used to greet the Prophet (PBUH) whenever he passed through the
lanes of Mecca.
The throwing out of a dead body of a Christian by the earth: narrated Anas:
There was a Christian who embraced Islam and read Surat-al-Baqara and Al-Imran
and he used to write the revelation for the Prophet (PBUH)
Later on he reverted to Christianity and he used to say” Muhammad (PBUH)
knows but what I have written for him“ Then Allah caused him to die and
the people buried him but in the morning they found that the earth had
thrown out his body. They said, “This is the deed of Muhammad (PBUH) and
his Companions. They have open the grave of our companion and took his body
out because he ran away from them, “so they again dug the grave deeper for
him, but in the morning they again found that earth had thrown the body out.
They said, “ This is a deed of Muhammad (PBUH) and his Companions”.
So they dug a third grave for him as deep as they could, but in the
morning they found that the earth had thrown the body out. Then they
believed what had befallen him was not done by mankind, and they had to
leave the body on the ground.
The screening (shading) by the trees for the Prophet (PBUH)
to answer the call of nature.
The rising of water in the well at Hudaibiya after it had dried.
The increasing in the amount of dates in the garden of Jabir bin
“Abdullah after the Prophet (PBUH)
went round the heap of dates and invoked Allah for his Blessings.
Speaking of a wolf: It has been written that a wolf also spoke to one of
the companions of the Prophet (PBUH) near Medina, as
narrated in Fatah-ul-Bari. Narrated Unais bun “ Amr:
Ahban bin Aus said, “ I was amongst my sheep.
Suddenly a wolf caught a sheep and I shouted t it. The wolf sat on its tall
and addressed me saying, “Who will look after it
(i.e., the sheep) when you will be busy and not able to look after it? Do
you forbid me the provision, which Allah has provided me? “Ahban added,“
I clapped my hands and said, “By Allah, I have seen anything more curious
and wonderful than this! ‘On that the wolf said, There is something more
curious and more wonderful than this; that is Allah “s Apostle (PBUH) in
those palm trees inviting people to Allah (i.e., Islam ‘
“Unais further said “Then Ahban went to
Allah ‘s Apostle (PBUH)
and informed him what happened and embraced Islam.
