(Miracle) Of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
is narrated from Hadhrat Abu Bakr radiyAllaahu unhu:
our hijrat, Suraqah bin Maalik followed us. I said: ‘Oh Rasulullah
sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam he is coming’. He replied: ‘Do not fear,
with us’”Then Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam made dua and his
(Suraqa’s ) horse sunk in the ground up to its stomach.
then called out: I see that you two have cursed me. Please make dua for
me. By Allaah, I will send back all those who are searching for you.”
Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam then made dua for him and
he was saved.
Places where kufar will fall
Anas radiyAllaahu unhu narrates regarding the day of Badr: Rasulullah
sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said: This is the place where so and
will fall, he then placed his blessed hands on the various places.
Hadhrat Anas radiyAllaahu unhu says: None of those mentioned ever
deviated from or went beyond their appointed spots shown by Rasulullah
sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam.ie. Each kaafir fell at exactly the place
shown by Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam
with the Rasul
Ibn Abbaas radiyAllaahu unlhuma narrates that Rasulullali sallAllaahu
alaybi wa sallam said on the day of Badr: This is Jibraeel holding onto
the head of his horse, equipped with the implements of war”
Hadhrat Sa’d bin Abi Waqqaas radiyAllaahu unhu narrated: On the day of
Uhud I saw on the right and on the left of Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi
wa sallam two men dressed in white fighting fiercely. I had never seen
them before and neither thereafter. They were Jibraeel and Meekaaeel
Of The Moon
Narrated by Anas bin Malik:
people of Mecca asked Allah's Apostle to show them a miracle. So he
showed them the moon split in two halves between which they saw on the
Bukhari,Volume 5 : Book 58 : Hadith 208)
(ra) narrates that a man who used to write for Rasulullah sallAllaahu
alayhi wasallam became a murtad (apostate, na’uthbillah) and joined the
mushrikeen. Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam prophesised:
The earth will not accept him.
narrates: We buried him a number of times, but the earth did not accept
him. i.e. the grave expelled his body each time.
Crying of the Date Palm
sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam used to lean against a date palm while
delivering the Jum’uah Khutbah. When the mimbar was made and Rasulullah
sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam stood on it for the first
time, the date palm cried like a baby and continued to do so until
Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam descended and embraced it. It
then calmed down.
Debt of Jaabir’s Father
(ra) narrates: My father passed away while he was in debt. I offered
the creditors dates in lieu of his debts, but they refused, Rasulullah
alayhi wa sallam then said: Place each heap of dates in a separate
sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam circumambulatated the largest heap three
times and then sat on it. He said: Call the creditors. He then
continued to mete out to each creditor until He fulfilled all that
was due. I would have been satisfied and pleased even if the debt was
merely fulfilled, and I could return to my brothers even without a
date, but Allaah Ta’ala preserved the dates, so much so that the heap
on which Rasuluilah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam was seated had not
decreased by a single date.
Bunch of Dates Responds to Rasululiah sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam
Abbaas (ra) said that once Rasulullah sallalahu alayhi wa sallam called
a bunch of dates and it descended until it settled upon Rasulullah
sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. He then said: “Return”, and it returned to
its place. On witnessing this, a Bedouin accepted Islam.
Provision-bag of Abu Huraira (ra)
Huraira (ra) narrates:
came to Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam with some dates and
asked him to make dua to Allaah Ta’ala for barakah (blessings) in these
dates. He clasped the dates and made dua. He then said: Take the
dates and place it in your provision-bag. Whenever you intend to take
out anything from it, put your hand in, and do not spread out the
ate from it during the era of Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam,
and that of Abu Bakr (ra), Umar (ra) and Uthmaan (ra). When Uthmaan
(ra)diyAllaahu unhu was martyred, the contents of the bag were depleted.
I inform you how much I ate from the bag? More than 200 wasq equivalent
to 1800 kg.
Addressing the People of the Well
the battle of Badr. the bodies of the kuffaar were dumped in a deserted
well. Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam addressed them: 0 so and
so! 0 so and so! Did you all find that which Allaah Ta ‘ala
promised you to be true, for verily I found that which Allaah promised
me to be true.
radiyAllaahu unhu asked: 0 Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhu wa sallam, how
are you speaking to mere bodies without souls?”
sallAllaahu alayhi wa saliam replied: You do not hear better than them.
i.e. They also hear like you, except that they cannot reply.
to some Ulama, this was a miracle, while according to others, this is a
general principle that the dead can hear. And Allaah knows best.
bin Maalik (ra) narrates that Usaid bin Hudair (ra) and Abbaad bin
Bishr (ra) were once with Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. When
they departed it was pitch dark. All of a sudden a light appeared in
front of them. When they separated, each one had a light with him until
they returned home.
after Esha Salaah, Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam gave Abu
Qataadah (ra) a date branch and said: Take this, for it will soon light
up for you a distance of ten in front and a distance of ten behind you.
hadith does not mention which unit of length is being referred to.
Cow Informs of Rasulullah sallaliahu alayhi wa sallam
Urs narrates: I was busy herding one of our cows when I heard from its
belly: "0 family of Zar! An eloquent statement! A counsellor saying La

a source of Blessing
Bukhari rahmatullah ‘alayhi narrates from Ibn Mas’ood (ra): We used to
regard the miracles as a source of blessing and you all regard them to
be a source of fear ....“. He then said: “I saw water gushing forth
from between the blessed fingers of Rasuluilah Sallalahu alayhi wa
sallam, and we heard the Tasbeeh of the food while Rasulullah Sallalahu
alayhi wa sallam was eating it.”
springing out from underneath his fingers
by Anas bin Malik:
saw Allah's Apostle when the 'Asr prayer was due and the people
searched for water to perform ablution but they could not find it.
Later on (a pot full of) water for ablution was brought to Allah's Apostle . He put his
hand in that pot and ordered the people to perform ablution from it. I
saw the water springing out from underneath his fingers till all of
them performed the ablution (it was one of the miracles of
the Prophet).(Volume 1, Book 4, Number 170)
or more people perform ablution from a small painted stove pot (Mikhdab)
was the time for prayer, and those whose houses were near got up and
went to their people (to perform ablution), and there remained some
people (sitting). Then a painted stove pot (Mikhdab) containing water was
brought to Allah's Apostles The pot was small, not broad enough for one
to spread one's hand in; yet all the people performed ablution. (The
sub narrator said, "We asked Anas, 'How many
persons were you?' Anas replied 'We were eighty or more"). (It was one
of the miracles of Allah's Apostle).
Volume 1, Book 4,
small bag of water provides drinking water for them and their animals
we were traveling with the Prophet and we carried on traveling till the
last part of the night and then we (halted at a place) and slept
(deeply). There is nothing sweeter than sleep for a traveler in the last
part of the night. So it was only the heat of the sun that made us to
wake up and the first to wake up was so and so, then so and so and then
so and so (the narrator 'Auf said that Abu Raja' had
told him their names but he had forgotten them) and the fourth person
to wake up was 'Umar bin Al-Khattab. And whenever the Prophet used to
sleep, nobody would wake him up till he himself
used to get up as we did not know what was happening (being revealed)
to him in his sleep. So, 'Umar got up and saw the condition of the
people, and he was a strict man, so he said, "Allahu
Akbar" and raised his voice with Takbir, and kept on saying loudly till
the Prophet got up because of it. When he got up, the people informed
him about what had happened to them. He said, "There
is no harm (or it will not be harmful). Depart!" So they departed from
that place, and after covering some distance the Prophet stopped and
asked for some water to perform the ablution.
So he performed the ablution and the call for the prayer was pronounced
and he led the people in prayer. After he finished from the prayer, he
saw a man sitting aloof who had not prayed with
the people. He asked, "O so and so! What has prevented you from praying
with us?" He replied, "I am Junub and there is no water. " The Prophet
said, "Perform Tayammum with (clean) earth
and that is sufficient for you."
the Prophet proceeded on and the people complained to him of thirst.
Thereupon he got down and called a person (the narrator 'Auf added that
Abu Raja' had named him but he had forgotten) and 'Ali,
and ordered them to go and bring water. So they went in search of water
and met a woman who was sitting on her camel between two bags of water.
They asked, "Where can we find water?" She
replied, "I was there (at the place of water) this hour yesterday and
my people are behind me." They requested her to accompany them. She
asked, "Where?" They said, "To Allah's Apostle ."
She said, "Do you mean the man who is called the Sabi, (with a new
religion)?" They replied, "Yes, the same person. So come along." They
brought her to the Prophet and narrated the whole
story. He said, "Help her to dismount." The Prophet asked for a pot,
then he opened the mouths of the bags and poured some water into the
pot. Then he closed the big openings of the bags
and opened the small ones and the people were called upon to drink and
water their animals. So they all watered their animals and they (too)
all quenched their thirst and also gave water to
others and last of all the Prophet gave a pot full of water to the
person who was Junub and told him to pour it over his body. The woman
was standing and watching all that which they were doing
with her water. By Allah, when her water bags were returned the looked
like as if they were more full (of water) than they had been before
(Miracle of Allah's Apostle) Then the Prophet ordered
us to collect something for her; so dates, flour and Sawiq were
collected which amounted to a good meal that was put in a piece of
cloth. She was helped to ride on he camel and that cloth
full of food-stuff was also placed in front of her and then the Prophet
said to her, "We have not taken your water but Allah has given water to
us." She returned home late. Her relatives asked her:
"O so and so what has delayed you?" She said, "A strange thing! Two men
met me and took me to the man who is called the Sabi' and he did such
and such a thing. By Allah, he is either
the greatest magician between this and this (gesturing with her index
and middle fingers raising them towards the sky indicating the heaven
and the earth) or he is Allah's true Apostle."
the Muslims used to attack the pagans around her abode but never
touched her village. One day she said to her people, "I think that
these people leave you purposely. Have you got any inclination to
Islam?" They obeyed her and all of them embraced Islam.
'Abdullah said: The word Saba'a means "The one who has deserted his old
religion and embraced a new religion." Abul 'Ailya said, "The Sabis are
a sect of people of the Scripture who recite the Book of
Volume 1, Book 7, Number 340)
of the Prophet's invocation for rain
man came to the Prophet on a Friday while he (the Prophet) was
delivering a sermon at Medina, and said, "There is lack of rain, so
please invoke your Lord to bless us with the rain." The Prophet looked at the
sky when no cloud could be detected. Then he invoked Allah for rain.
Clouds started gathering together and it rained till the Medina valleys
started flowing with water. It continued raining
till the next Friday. Then that man (or some other man) stood up while
the Prophet was delivering the Friday sermon, and said, "We are
drowned; Please invoke your Lord to withhold it (rain)
from us" The Prophet smiled and said twice or thrice, "O Allah! Please
let it rain round about us and not upon us." The clouds started
dispersing over Medina to the right and to the left, and it
rained round about Medina and not upon Medina. Allah showed them (the
people) the miracle of His Prophet and His response to his invocation.

jinn and an (unseen) creature prophsies the prophethood of the prophet
by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
never heard 'Umar saying about something that he thought it would be
so-and-so, but he was quite right. Once, while 'Umar was sitting, a
handsome man passed by him, 'Umar said, "If I am not wrong, this
person is still on his religion of the pre-lslamic period of ignorance
or he was their foreteller. Call the man to me." When the man was
called to him, he told him of his thought. The man said, "I have
never seen such a day on which a Muslim is faced with such an
accusation." 'Umar said, "I am determined that you should tell me the
truth." He said, "I was a foreteller in the pre-lslamic period of
ignorance." Then 'Umar said, "Tell me the most astonishing thing your
female Jinn has told you of." He said, "One-day while I was in the
market, she came to me scared and said, 'Haven't you
seen the Jinns and their despair and they were overthrown after their
defeat (and prevented from listening to the news of the heaven) so that
they (stopped going to the sky and) kept following
camel-riders (i.e. 'Arabs)?" 'Umar said, "He is right." and added, "One
day while I was near their idols, there came a man with a calf and
slaughtered it as a sacrifice (for the idols).
(unseen) creature shouted at him, and I have never heard harsher than
his voice. He was crying, 'O you bold evil-doer! A matter of success!
An eloquent man is saying: None has the right to be worshipped except
you (O Allah).' On that the people fled, but I said, 'I shall not go
away till I know what is behind this.' Then the cry came again: 'O you
bold evil-doer! A matter of success! An eloquent man is
saying: None has the right to be worshipped except Allah.' I then went
away and a few days later it was said, "A prophet has appeared." (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 206)
wasq of barley
reported that a person came to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him)
and asked for food. And he gave him half a wasq of barley, and the
person and his wife and their guests kept on making use of it (as
a food) until he weighed it (in order to find out the actual quantity,
and it was no more). He came to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him)
(and informed him about it). He said: Had you not
weighed it, you would be eating out of it and it would have remained
intact for you. (Sahih
Muslim, Book 30, Number 5661)
of water between his fingers
b. Malik reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) and his
Companions were at a place known as az-Zaura' (az-Zaurd' is a place in
the bazar of Medina near the mosque) that he called for a
vessel containing water. He put his hand in that. And there began to
spout (water) between his fingers and all the Companions performed
ablution. Qatada, one of the narrators in the chain of
narrators, said: Abu Hamza (the kunya of Hadrat Anas b. Malik), how
many people were they? He said: They were about three hundred.
