EXAMPLES OF THE PROPHET’S PREDICTIONS WHICH EXIST IN BOOKS OF TRADITION – version 1

PROPHET PREDICTED WHERE THE PAGAN QURASY WILL BE KILLED IN BADR WAR

‘Umar reports in a narration recorded in Sahih al-Muslim:

‘Before the Battle of Badr started, God’s Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, walked around the battlefield and pointed to some locations, saying, Abu Jahl will be killed here, ‘Utba here, Shayba here, Walid here, and so on. By God, we found, after the battle, the dead bodies of all those men in the exact places that God’s Messenger had pointed out.’1

WHILE IN MAKKA UNDER GREAT TORTURES, THE PROPHET PREDICTED THE FUTURE VICTORIES OF ISLAM.

Bukhari and Abu Dawud quote Habbab ibn Arat, who said:

Once, during the days of trouble and torture in Makka, I went to God’s Messenger, who was sitting in the shade of the Ka‘ba. I was still a slave in the hands of the Makkans then. They inflicted on me severe tortures. Unable to endure those tortures any more, I requested God’s Messenger to pray to God for help and salvation. But he turned towards me and said: “By God, previous communities had to endure more pitiless tortures. Some of them were made to lie in ditches and cut in two with saws but this did not make them forsake their faith. They were skinned alive but they never became weak against the enemy. Surely God will perfect this religion, but you display undue haste. A day will come when a woman will travel alone by herself from San’a to Hadramawt fearing nothing but wild beasts. However, you show impatience.”

Habbab concluded:

By God, what God’s Messenger predicted that day, have all come true. I have personally witnessed it all.2

THE MESSENGER PREDICTED ‘AMMAR’S MARTYRDOM IN A CIVIL WAR

Bukhari, Muslim and Ahmad ibn Hanbal record:

During the construction of the Prophet’s Mosque in Madina, God’s Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, told ‘Ammar: “What a pity O ‘Ammar, a rebellious group will kill you3

Ammar was killed in the Battle of Siffin by the supporters of Mu‘awiya, who rebelled against Caliph ‘Ali.

 ʻAmmār was killed in the Battle of Siffin by the forces of Muʿāwiya b. Abī Sufyān in 657″……………., about killing ʻAmmār. ʻAbdallah references the hadith in which Muhammad tells ʻAmmār that the “usurping party” will kill him.

THE PROPHET FORETOLD THAT FATIMA WOULD JOIN HIM FIRST OF ALL AFTER HIS DEATH

Before his death, the Messenger called his daughter Fatima to his bedside and informed her that she would be the first among his family to join him after his death. Fatima joined her father, the pride of mankind, six months later.4

Additional information about FATIMA:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatimah

Following the Farewell Pilgrimage, Muhammad summoned Fatimah and informed her that he would die soon, and also told her that she would be the next of his household to die.[6][7] After Mohammad’s subsequent passing, Fatimah was grief-stricken and remained so until she herself died less than six months later, on 10th, Jumada al-awwal (as per Fatimid).

THE PROPHET, UPON HIM BE PEACE AND BLESSINGS, PREDICTED THE MONGOL INVASION:

Saying: The Hour will not come before you fight against a people with red faces, small, slant eyes and flat noses. They wear hairy leather boots.5

——————————————————————————————-

THE MESSENGER PREDICTED THE CALIPHATE OF ABU BAKR AND ‘UMAR

As related by Hakim, Tirmidhi, Ibn Hanbal and Ibn Maja, by repeatedly declaring, You should, after my death, follow the way of Abu Bakr and ‘Umar,8 the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, meant that Abu Bakr and ‘Umar would succeed him as caliphs. He also predicted that Abu Bakr’s reign would be short, whereas ‘Umar would remain longer to be able to make many conquests.6

——————————————————————————————-

THE PROPHET PREDICTED THE CONQUEST OF MANY IMPORTANT CITIES.

According to authentic narrations, the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, gave his community the glad tidings that they would conquer Damascus, Jerusalem, Iraq, Persia, Istanbul (Constantinople) and Cyprus, and that the religion of Islam would reach as far as the remotest corners of the world in the east and west.7

THE PROPHET PREDICTED THE CALIPHATE AND MARTYRDOM OF ‘UTHMAN

According to an authentic narration, the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, declared:

‘Uthman will be killed while reading the Quran. God will dress him in a shirt but they will desire to remove it from him.9

By this saying, he meant that ‘Uthman would become Caliph but his deposition would be sought, and finally he would be martyred while reading the Quran. This happened exactly as he predicted.

Additional information about the death of Uthman:

Assassination of Uthman.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Uthman

The rebels increased their pressure and reaching the door of the house of Uthman set it on fire. Some rebels led by Muhammad ibn Abu Bakr climbed the houses of the neighbors and then jumped into the house of Uthman. It was July 17, 656 C.E. and Uthman was fasting that day. The previous night he had seen Prophet Muhammad in a dream. The Prophet had said,”If you wish help can be sent to you and if you want you can break your fast with us this evening. We will welcome you.” Uthman opted for the second. That made Uthman know that it was his last day of life. He was assasinated while reciting the Quran, The ayat of Surah Baqarah “137. So if they believe in the like of that which you believe, then they are rightly guided, but if they turn away, then they are only in opposition. So Allah will suffice you against them. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower”. The blood-stained Quran he was reciting from is still preserved in a museum in Tashkent today

THE PROPHET FORETOLD THE FUTURE VICTORIES OF SA‘D

As narrated in a authentic Tradition, the noble Prophet of God, upon him be peace and blessings, said to Sa‘d ibn Abi Waqqas when the latter was gravely ill:

“It is hoped that you will be spared so that some people may benefit through you and some others be harmed through you“.10

By this, he suggested that Sa‘d would be a great commander and make many conquests, and while many peoples would benefit from him by converting to Islam, many others would be harmed through him as a result of the collapse of their states.

Sa‘d, just as predicted by the holy Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, took the command of the Muslim armies and destroyed the Persian Sassanid Empire, bringing many peoples within the guidance of Islam.

THE PROPHET PREDICTED FIRST MUSLIM NAVY AND WHERE  UMM HARAM WILL BE KILLED

Once, when the Prophet woke up in the house of Umm Haram, the aunt of Anas ibn Malik, who served the Messenger for ten years in Madina, he smilingly said:

“I dreamt that my community would be waging war in the SEA sitting on thrones like kings.” Umm Haram asked: ‘Pray that I too may be with them’. He said firmly: “You shall be.”11

All this came true forty years later when Umm Haram accompanied her husband ‘Ubada ibn Samit, on the conquest of Cyprus. She died there, and her tomb has since been a visited place.

Arab conquest and Arab-Byzantine condominium
In 650 AD Arabs made the first attack on the island under the leadership of Muawiyah I. They conquered the capital Salamis – Constantia after a brief siege, but drafted a treaty with the local rulers. In the course of this expedition a relative of the Prophet, Umm-Haram fell from her mule near the Salt Lake at Larnaca and WAS KILLED. She was buried in that spot and the Hala Sultan Tekke was built there. After apprehending a breach of the treaty, the Arabs re-invaded the island in 654 AD with five hundred ships. This time, however, a garrison of 12,000 men was left in Cyprus, bringing the island under Muslim influence.

THE PROPHET PREDICTED THE APPEARANCE OF MUKHTAR AND HAJJAJ

According to an authentic narration, the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, declared:

“From the tribe of Thaqif will appear a liar who claims Prophethood and a blood-thirsty tyrant.12″

By this, he gave tidings of the notorious Mukhtar, who claimed Prophethood, and the criminal Hajjaj, who killed tens of thousands of people.

THE PROPHET PREDICTED THE CONQUEST OF ISTANBUL

Again, according to an authentic narration, the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, declared:

“Surely, Constantinople (Istanbul) will be conquered (by my community); how blessed the commander who will conquer it, and how blessed his army.13″

He thus foretold the conquest of Istanbul by Muslims, and indicated the high spiritual rank of Sultan Mehmed, the Conqueror, and the virtuousness of his army. What he foretold took place centuries later.
