Miracles of Prophet Muhammad Part 2 FOOD MULTIPLICATION

The Miracle in Wedding Dinner.

A SMALL AMOUNT OF FOOD FED 300 PEOPLE.

Anas b. Malik narrates:

During the feast on the occasion of the Prophet’s (PBUH) marriage to Zaynab bint Jahsh, my mother, Umm Sulaym said to me:

“O Anas! The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is going to marry today. I think they do not have any food. Bring that oil here!” I brought it. My mum prepared a dish called hays by mixing pure Madinah dates only enough for the apostle of Allah and his wife with oil in an earthenware pot.

“O Anas! Take this dish to the Apostle of Allah and say to Him: ‘My mum has sent this to you. She is sending her kindest regards to you. Say to the apostle of Allah that this is a small and insufficient gift from us for you”.

I took it to the apostle of Allah and said:

“My mum is sending her kindest regards to you. This is a small and insufficient gift from us for you” Read more of this post

Miracles of Prophet Muhammad Part 1 THE WATER SPRINGING OUT FROM AMONGST HIS FINGERS

These are the references to show people who do not know Prophet Muhammad pbuh performed miracles. Source: Hadith of Bukhari and Muslim.


THE WATER SPRINGING OUT FROM AMONGST HIS FINGERS

(1) Narrated 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).  (Book #4, Hadith #170)


(2) Narrated Thabit: Anas said, “The Prophet asked for water and a tumbler with a broad base and no so deep, containing a small quantity of water, was brought to him whereby he put his fingers in it.” Anas further said, ‘NOTICED THE WATER SPRINGING OUT FROM AMONGST HIS FINGERS.” Anas added, ‘ estimated that the people who performed ablution with it numbered between seventy to eighty.”  (Book #4, Hadith #199)
(10) Narrated Salim bin Abi Aj-Jad: Jabir bin ‘Abdullah said, “The people became very thirsty on the day of Al-Hudaibiya (Treaty). A small pot containing some water was in front of the Prophet and when he had finished the ablution, the people rushed towards him. He asked, ‘What is wrong with you?’ They replied, ‘We have no water either for performing ablution or for drinking except what is present in front of you.’ So he placed his hand in that pot and the WATER STARTED FLOWING AMONG HIS FINGERS LIKE SPRINGS. We all drank and performed ablution (from it).” I asked Jabir, “How many were you?” he replied, “Even if we had been one-hundred-thousand, it would have been sufficient for us, but we were fifteen-hundred.”  (Book #56, Hadith #776)
(11) Narrated ‘Abdullah: We used to consider miracles as Allah’s Blessings, but you people consider them to be a warning. Once we were with Allah’s Apostle on a journey, and we ran short of water. He said, “Bring the water remaining with you.” The people brought a utensil containing a little water. He placed his hand in it and said, “Come to the blessed water, and the Blessing is from Allah.”I SAW THE WATER FLOWING FROM AMONG THE FINGERS OF ALLAH’S APOSTLE, and no doubt, we heard the meal glorifying Allah when it was being eaten (by him).  (Book #56, Hadith #779)


The Flowing of Water from his Hand like a Fountain – 3

This is a miracle which was occurred in Buwat Expedition. This is narrated in authentic hadith sources like Bukhari and Muslim. Hazrat Jabir narrates.

“The Apostle of Allah ordered His companions, Tell them to make wudu. However the companions informed Him that there was no any water. The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) said to them Find me a little water”. We brought him a little water. Then he put his hand over that little water and recited something. I had no idea about what he recited. Then, he said: Bring me the big water reservoir of the caravan.”  They brought it to me and I put it in front of the Apostle of Allah. HE PUT HIS HAND INTO THAT AND OPENED HIS FINGERS. I was pouring that little water onto his blessed hand. I SAW THAT TOO MUCH WATER FLEW FROM HIS FINGERS AND THE WATER RESERVOIR WAS FULL. I called those who needed water. All of them came, made wudu and drank from it. And I said to him “There is no one left.”THE APOSTLE OF ALLAH RAISED HIS HAND; THAT WATER RESERVOIR REMAINED FULL.”

Source: Muslim, Zuhd, 74, no. 3013; Ibn Hibban, Sahih, 8:159.


The Flowing of Water from his Hand like a Fountain – 2

Another miracle is narrated by Hazrat Jabir bin Abdullah:

The people were left without water on the Day of Hudaybiya. A group of people came to the Apostle of Allah PBUH) while he was making wudu from the pitcher. The Apostle of Allah asked them:

“What happened to you?”

They answered: “We are ruined O Apostle of Allah! We are ruined O Apostle of Allah!”

The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:

“You will not be ruined when I am among you!”

“O Apostle of Allah! We have no water left for making wudu or drinking other than the pitcher you have!”

Upon this, the Apostle of Allah (PBUH) put his hand over the pitcher and said;

“Here you are, In the name of God”. WATER WAS FLOWING FROM HIS FINGERS LIKE BUBBLING FROM A WELL-SPRING!

Muslims both drank water from it and made wudu.

Jabir b. Abdullah was asked:

“At that time, how many people were present there?

Jabir:

“We were a thousand and five hundred!

Moses Spoke Alone to God on Top of Sinai

The Christians bringing up the case of the witnesses when Prophet Muhammad pbuh got the first revelation from Allah through Angel Gabriel.

The first response I recommend, ask them if there was any witness when Moses facing god on top of the mountain. Here are many verses from their Bible and the commentaries.


Exodus 24

New International Version

The Covenant Confirmed

1Then the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel. You are to worship at a distance, 2- BUT MOSES ALONE IS TO APPROACH THE LORD; THE OTHERS MUST NOT COME NEAR. And the people may not come up with him.”

12-The Lord said to Moses, “Come up to me on the mountain and stay here, and I will give you the tablets of stone with the law and commandments I have written for their instruction.”

13-Then Moses set out with Joshua his aide, and MOSES WENT UP ON THE MOUNTAIN OF GOD (he went up alone). 14-He said to the elders, “WAIT HERE for us until we come back to you. Aaron and Hur are with you, and anyone involved in a dispute can go to them.” Read more of this post

    Tafseer Surah an-Nisa Ayah 142

    This is a reference for people who claim Allah is a Deceiver.


    The Hypocrites Try to Deceive Allah and Sway Between Believers and Disbelievers

    The hypocrites fluctuate between emaan and kufr. They pretend to have emaan but in their hearts they have kufr. Why? In order to gain benefits from the Muslims as well as the disbelievers. But what are they actually doing? Deceiving Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. In the beginning of Surat Al-Baqarah it was mentioned,

    يُخَـدِعُونَ اللَّهَ وَالَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا

    “They (think to) deceive Allah and those who believe.” Yukhadioona means to show on the apparent that is contrary to what is inside. In ayah 142, Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala states,

    إِنَّ الْمُنَـفِقِينَ يُخَـدِعُونَ اللَّهَ وَهُوَ خَادِعُهُمْ

    “Verily, the hypocrites seek to deceive Allah, but it is He Who deceives them.”

    There is no doubt that Allah can never be deceived, for He has perfect knowledge of the secrets and what the hearts conceal. However, the hypocrites, due to their ignorance, scarce knowledge and weak minds, think that since they were successful in deceiving people, using Islamic Law as a cover of safety for themselves, they will acquire the same status with Allah on the Day of Resurrection and deceive Him too. Allah states that on that Day, the hypocrites will swear to Him that they were on the path of righteousness and correctness thinking that such statement will benefit them with Allah. Allah’s statement, Read more of this post

    The Issue of Apostasy in Islam

    JONATHAN BROWN

    Dr. Jonathan A. C. Brown is the Director of Research at Yaqeen Institute, and an Associate Professor and Chair of Islamic Civilization at Georgetown University. He is the editor in chief of the Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and the Law, and the author of several books including Misquoting Muhammad: The Challenges and Choices of Interpreting the Prophet’s Legacy.


    The Shariah consists of some laws that remain the same regardless of changing circumstances and others that change with them. Most of the Shariah is up to individual Muslims to follow in their own lives. Some are for judges to implement in courts. Finally, the third set of laws is for the ruler or political authority to implement based on the best interests of society. The Shariah ruling on Muslims who decide to leave Islam belongs to this third group. Implemented in the past to protect the integrity of the Muslim community, today this important goal can best be reached by Muslim governments using their right to set punishments for apostasy aside.

    One of the most common accusations leveled against Islam involves the freedom of religion. The problem, according to critics: Islam doesn’t have any. Read more of this post

    Moses Order Killing Infants in Bible

    Background – In Numbers Chapter 25, it is said that the Midianites seduced Israeli men into partaking in rituals to their god on Mount Peor.

    Numbers 31
    And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
    2 Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.
    3 And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm some of yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites, and avenge the LORD of Midian.
    4 Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war.
    5 So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.
    6 And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his hand.
    7 And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males. Read more of this post

    Sucking the tongues of children?

     • March 10, 2016


    Question:

    Some anti-Muslim websites cite a narration that the Prophet sucked the tongue of a child. What is the real story?

    Answer:

    In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful

    If we read a narration that we do not understand at first, we need to examine the context before coming to a conclusion. You should also be aware that these sites are notorious for mistranslating prophetic traditions and citing them out of context.

    In this case, it was the practice of Arabs who lived in the dry desert climate to moisten the lips and mouth of a child who was suffering from thirst. If a child had parched lips or dry mouth and water was scarce, they could be relieved by sharing saliva. This was something practical and necessary in the tough climate in which they lived.

    The following narration makes this context clear: Read more of this post

    Why did Prophet Muhammad raid caravans in Medina?

     • March 10, 2016


    In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful

    One of the claims frequently made by anti-Muslim websites is that after Prophet Muhammad emigrated to Medina, he became a warlord and launched offensive wars against the tribes around him for worldly gains. The truth is that the Meccan aristocracy had been violently intolerant of the new religion from the very beginning. The Muslims were forced to take up arms in defense of their right to practice Islam.

    After the Prophet fled to Medina following 13 years of persecution, the Quraish issued an ultimatum to the leadership of Medina that they must kill the Prophet or face war. They wrote to Medina saying: Read more of this post

    Did Prophet Muhammad plan genocide against Jews? The story of Banu Quraiza

     • April 8, 2013


    Question:

    Your prophet committed genocide (extermination of an entire race) against the Jews of Medina and the tribe Banu Qurayza.

    Answer:

    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

    The Prophet was in conflict with some specific Jewish tribes in Medina due to their aiding the Meccan aristocracy in a war of extermination against the Muslim community. After the battle, the Prophet chose Sa’d ibn Mu’adh to pass judgment upon the fighting men, which Sa’d did according to the law of the Torah.

    Ibn Umar reported: Read more of this post
