MIRACLES PERFORMED BY RASOOLULLAH (S A W W)

                        MIRACLES PERFORMED BY RASOOLULLAH (S A W W)

Hazrat Allama Jalaludeen Suyuti (radi Allahu anhu) in his book Khasaais Kubra, has narrated one thousand mujizas (miracles) of the beloved Rasool (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). Allama Yusuf bin Ismaeel Nabhaani (radi Allahu anhu) has also narrated numerous mujizaat of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in his book Hujatullahi alal Aalameen. These books and others have recorded three thousand miracles and the great predecessors have said that more than three hundred thousand miracles are proven from the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). A few miracles are being narrated for the sake of attaining blessings.

THE SPLITTING OF THE MOON : It is narrated in Bukhari and Muslim, that one night the kufaar asked the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) to show them a sign that he was the Prophet of Allah. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) pointed his blessed finger at the moon and split it in half. He (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), the directed one half of the moon over Mount Saffa and the other half over Mount Marwa.

This miraculous event was seen by the kufaar and various Sahaba-e-Kiraam. This is a miracle that has not been performed by any other Prophet (peace be upon them all).Aala Hazrat (radi Allahu anhu) says,

Sooraj Ulte Paao palte chand ishaare se ho chaak, Andhe Najdi dekh le Qudrat Rasoolullah ki.

THE SUN RISES AGAIN : Hazrat Aasma bint Umais (radi Allahu anha) states that once the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) performed his Asar Salaah and was resting on the blessed lap of Hazrat Ali (radi Allahu anhu) at a place called Sahba. Hazrat Ali (radi Allahu anhu) had not performed his Asar Salaah as yet. After some time, the sun went down. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) asked Sayyiduna Ali if he had performed his Asr Salaah and he answered in the negative. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) then said, 

Allahuma Innahu Kaana fi Taaatika wa Taa'ati Rasoolika Fardud alaihish shamsa (O Allah! He was obeying You and your Prophet sallal laahu alaihi wasallam. Bring back the sun for him).

Sayyida Aasma (radi Allahu anha) says, 

I saw that the sun had already set, then I saw it began to rise again and its rays shone on the mountains and on the ground. [Shifa Shareef – Mawahib Laduniyah – Khasaais-e-Kubra].

BRINGING THE DEAD BACK TO LIFE : Imam Baihaqi (radi Allahu anhu) states in Dalaailun Nabuiwat that once the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) invited a man to Islam. He said that he would accept Islam, if the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) brought his deceased daughter back to life. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) asked to be taken to her grave. The man took the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) to her grave. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) stood at her grave and called her by name. The grave split open, and the girl rose from her grave saying,

I am present and ready to obey your Deen. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, Do you desire to come back into this world She saidYa Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)! I have found my Creator to be better for me than my parents, and I have found the hereafter to be better for me than the world.

 In the same way, the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) caused his parents to rise from their blessed graves and they accepted his Risaalat.[Mawaahib]

WATER GUSHED FROM HIS FINGERS

 Hazrat Saalim (radi Allahu anhu) narrates from Hazrat Jaabir (radi Allahu anhu), On the day of Sulah Hudaibiyah, those present began to feel thirsty. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) had one chaagal (leather bottle with a spout) with him. When he (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) made wudhu out of this bottle, then people rushed towards him. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) asked their reason for doing this and the companions said that except the water in the bottle, they had no water for wudhu or drinking. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) then placed his hand over the leather bottle and springs of water began to gush from his blessed fingers. All the companions made wudhu and drank from that water. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) asked Jaabir (radi Allahu anhu), How many of you were there on that day? Hazrat Jaabir replied, We were one thousand five hundred. Even if we were one hundred thousand, that water would have been sufficient. [Bukhari Shareef]

                                                                                 

                                                                          FOOD BECOMES EXCESSIVE :

 Hazrat Abdur Rahmaan bin Abu Bakr (radi Allahu anhu) states, We were one hundred and thirty persons with the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) asked if any of us had anything to eat, and one person from amongst us said that he only had on portion of flour. This one portion of flour was kneaded and then a person selling goats was passing by. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) purchased one goat from him and it was made zibah. Then on the command of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) the liver was fried and each one of us was given a piece. Then the meat was cooked an put into two bowls. We all ate till we were satisfied and yet the bowls still remained full. We then took the remainder food and kept it on our camels.

 It must be noted that in this incident, there are two miracles. One, the liver of a goat was given to one hundred and thirty people, and one portion of flour and the meat of one goat fed them all. In the same way, on the day of when the Muslims were digging a trench, some narrations say one thousand and another narration says three thousand companions ate from one portion of flour and the meat of one goat, through the Dua of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). Even on the day of the Battle of Tabook, one hundred thousand Sahaba ate from a small amount of food and there was still enough food remaining over. [Bukhari]

                                                           Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) states,

 Once I took a few dates to the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and asked him to make dua for barkat on them. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) took them in his blessed hands and made dua on them. He then said, Keep them in your food pouch and whenever you wish, take from them by using your hands only and do not dust your pouch. I personally ate from these dates. I fed it to others and always kept this pouch with me, until it was mislaid in the crowd when Hazrat Uthman-e-Ghani (radi Allahu anhu) was made Shaheed.

                             Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) would be often heard reciting this stanza :

Today, the people are faced with one sorrow, 
and I am faced with two sorrows 
One is on losing my pouch and 
the other is due to Hazrat Uthmans martyrdom

GIVING CURE TO THE ILL: Hazrat Fadiks (radi Allahu anhu) both eyes had become completely white and he could not see anything. Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) made dua for him and he began to see so well, that he could thread a needle at the age of 80.

Hazrat Imam Raazi (radi Allahu anhu) states that the wife of Hazrat Muaaz bin Udraa (radi Allahu anhu) had leprosy. She went to the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and he touched her with his Aasa Mubarak (Staff). The leprosy started to go away.[Khasaais-e-Kubra vol.3 pg 70].

                                                        Hazrat Habib bin Yasaaf (radi Allahu anhu) says, 

In one battle I was with the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and an enemy struck me on my shoulder. This caused my arm to be severed and it began to hang. I went to the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and he placed his blessed saliva on the arm and pressed it in place. My arm became attached and was fine. I then went back into battle and even killed the person who had severed my arm.[Bukhari Shareef]

HIS KNOWLEDGE OF THE UNSEEN : The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was aware of all that which happened and that which was to happen. This Knowledge of the Unseen was bestowed upon him from the Divine Court of Allah, as it is evident from numerous verses of the Holy Quran. Almighty Allah says, 

And Almighty revealed upon you the Book and Wisdom and He taught you all that which you had not known and the Grace of Allah is great upon you.[Surah Nisa]

                                                                          

                                                                                Almighty Allah says,

The Knower of the Unseen does not inform anyone from His Unseen (knowledge), except for his chosen Prophets. [Surah Jinn].

Aala Hazrat Ash Shah Imam Ahmed Raza Khan (radi Allahu anhu) says, Aur Koyi Ghaib Kya, Tum Se Niha ho Bhalaa – Jub Na Khudahi Chupa tum pe karoro Durood (What is there left now to be hidden from you, when Almighty Allah himself is not hidden from you.)

Almighty Allah blessed the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) with the knowledge of all that which has happened, and all that which will happen. Hazrat Huzaifa (radi Allahu anhu) reports, 

Once the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) stood up amongst us (to deliver a talk), and in this talk, he informed us of all that which was to happen until Qiyaamah. Those who remembered, remembered, and those who had forgotten, forgot. [Ad Daulatul Makkiyah pg.259]

It is in Tirmizi on the authority of Hazrat Muaaz ibn Jabal (radi Allahu anhu) that the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, I saw Almighty Allah. He placed his Dast-e-Qudrat between both my shoulders and I felt its coolness in my chest, then everything was made known to me and I recognised it. [Ad Daulatul Makkiyah pg.261]

It is narrated in Tirmizi on the authority of Hazrat Abdullah ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) in which the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, I know whatever is in the skies and the earths.Another narration mentions,I have become aware of all that which is in the east and the west. [Ad DaulatulMakkiyah pg.261]. For a detailed explanation of the Knowledge of Unseen, peruse the book Ad Daulatul Makkiyah bil Madatil Ghaibiyah by Aala Hazrat Ash Shah Imam Ahmed Raza Khan (radi Allahu anhu).

WASILA (MEDIATION) : To ask in the court of Almighty Allah, through a means is a desirable manner. This has always been done, and is the manner of the past Prophets (peace be upon them all) and our pious predecessors. The wasila of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was used before his physical birth, after his birth and even after his passing from this world. Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran, 

O you who believe! Fear Allah and seek a mediation towards Him, and make jihaad in His Way with the hope of gaining salvation.

TAWASSUL BEFORE HIS BIRTH : When Adam (alaihis salaam) came from the heavens onto earth. He asked Almighty Allah for pardon. In the end, he made the following Dua: O My Allah! I ask of You to pardon me through the wasila of Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). Almighty Allah asked Adam (radi Allahu anhu) how he had recognised Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and Adam (alaihis salaam) said, 

When you created me and then put life into me, then I lifted my head and I saw written on the Arsh Laa ilaaha ilal laahu Muhammadur Rasoolullah I thus knew that you had placed his name close to Yours, as he is Your most beloved creation. [Tibraani]

The Jews even asked for victory through the wasila of Nabi (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) before his birth. This is also recorded by Abu Naeem in Dalaail through Ataar and Dahaak, where Hazrat ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) said,

 Before the coming of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), the Jews used to make dua for victory over the kaafirs and they used to say the dua in these words: O Allah! We ask of You through the unlettered Prophet, that you may grant us victory over them. [Tafseer Durr Mansoor]

TAWASSUL AFTER HIS BIRTH : The Sahaba-e-Kiraam always asked dua from the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) for intercession on the day of Qiyaamat or Dua-e-Maghfirat etc. A few examples are being presented. Hazrat Anas (radi Allahu anhu) says, 

I said to the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), Please intercede for me on the day of Qiyaamah. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, I shall intercede for you I said, Ya Rasoolallah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)! Where should I search for you? He (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, First search for me on Pul Siraat I said, If I do not find you there? He (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, Then search for me near Mizaan I said, If I do not find you at Mizaan? He (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, Then look for me at the Fountain of Kauthar as I shall not leave these three places. [Mishkaat Shareef]

Whilst bringing Imaan in the Darbaar of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), Hazrat Aswad ibn Qaarib (radi Allahu anhu) says,

 And You must be my Intercessor on that day when none shall be able to be of any assistance to Aswad ibn Qaarib (radi Allahu anhu) [Istiaab li ibn Abdul Birr]

Hazrat Uthman bin Haneef (radi Allahu anhu) says that a blind person came to the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and asked the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) to make dua for him to regain his sight. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said to him, If you wish, then I shall make the dua. And if you wish, then you may remain patient and patience is better for you.He said, Please make the dua The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) asked him to make proper wudhu and then say the following dua : 

O Allah! I ask in Your Divine Court and I present the wasila of your Nabi, the Nabi of Mercy. O Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) I have presented your wasila in the Court of my Lord for my need, so that it may be accepted. O Allah! accept the intercession of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) on my behalf. [Tirmizi]

TAWASSUL AFTER HIS WISAAL : The companions of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) used his wasila even after his passed from this world. A few examples are being presented. Once, there was a severe drought in Madinah Shareef, and the people all went to Bibi Aisha (radi Allahu anha) for her advice. She asked them to go to the Rauza-e-Anwar of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and to open a way for light to pass through from the sky, so that there is nothing between the Rauza Mubaarak and the sky. The people did as she said, and it began to rain. Grass grew in abundance and the animals became healthy and strong. [Sunan Daarimi]

Hazrat Umar-e-Farouk (radi Allahu anhu) sent Hazrat Abdullah bin Qart (radi Allahu anhu) with a letter to Abu Ubaidah ibni Jarah who was in Yarmook. When Hazrat Abdullah (radi Allahu anhu) departed from the Musjid, he realised that he had made a mistake. He had not gone to the Rauza-e-Anwar of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) to say salaam before leaving. He thus went to the Rauz-e-Anwar and found Ummul Momineen Sayyida Aisha, Ameeril Momineen Sayyiduna Ali and Hazrat Abbas there. Hazrat Ali (radi Allahu anhu) had Imam Hassan in his hands and Hazrat Abbas had Imam Hussain ridwaanullahi ta aala alaihim ajmaeen in his hands. Hazrat Abdullah ibn Qart (radi Allahu anhu) requested Hazrat Ali and Hazrat Abbas (radi Allahu anhum) to make dua for him, that he may be successful. Both of them lifted their hands in front of the Rauza-e-Anwar and made the following dua : 

O Allah we ask dua through the wasila Nabi Mustafa, Nabi Mujtaba, through whose wasila the dua of Hazrat Adam (radi Allahu anhu) was accepted and he was pardoned, and that You may make the path easy upon Abdullah and that You may make what is far near for him and that you may assist the companions of Your Nabi with victory. Verily You are the One Who hears our Duas.After making this dua, Hazrat Ali (radi Allahu anhu) said to Hazrat Abdullah (radi Allahu anhu)Now go! Almighty Allah will not reject the Dua of Umar, Abbas, Ali, Hassan, Hussain and the wives of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), for they have presented the Wasila of that Nabi (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) who is the most exalted of all creation in the Court of Allah (when making dua for you). [Futoohush Shaam vol.1 pg.15]

The wasila of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was always used and will always be used by those who shall come until Qiyaamah. Imamul Aima Hazrat Sayyiduna Imam Abu Hanifa Nu'man bin Thaabit Taabi'ee (radi Allahu anhu) says, 

O Leader of Leaders! I have travelled and come to you. I am hoping for your pleasure and I am in refuge under your green dome. Your personality is so exalted, that if you had not been created, then no human would have been born, and nor would any creation be created, I am hopeful of your generosity and blessings. Except for you, there is no other saviour for Abu Hanifa. [Qasida Numania]
