uraqah bin Maalik
During our hijrat, Suraqah bin Maalik followed us. I said: ‘Oh Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam he is coming’. He replied: ‘Do not fear, Allaah
is with us’”Then Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam made dua and his (Suraqa’s ) horse sunk in the ground up to its stomach.
He 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.
The Places where kufar will fall
so 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
Angels with the Rasul
Splitting Of The Moon
Narrated by Anas bin Malik:
The 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 Hiram' mountain.
(Sahih Bukhari,Volume 5 : Book 58 : Hadith 208)
Anas (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.
He narrates: We buried him a number of times, but the earth did not accept him. i.e. the grave expelled his body each time.
The Crying of the Date Palm
Rasulullah 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.
The Debt of Jaabir’s Father
Jaabir (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
sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam then said: Place each heap of dates in a separate corner.
Rasulullah 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 single 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.
A Bunch of Dates Responds to Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam
Ibn 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.
The Provision-bag of Abu Huraira (ra)
Abu Huraira (ra) narrates:I came to Rasulullah sallAllahu 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 contents.
He then narrates:
I 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.
Should I inform you how much I ate from the bag? More than 200 wasq equivalent to 1800 kg.
Addressing the People of the Well
After 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.
Umar radiyAllaahu unhu asked: 0 Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhu wa sallam, how are you speaking to mere bodies without souls?”
Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa saliam replied: You do not hear better than them. i.e. They also hear like you, except that they cannot reply.
According 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.
Anas 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.
Once after Esha Salaah, Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhim 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.
The hadith does not mention which unit of length is being referred to.
A Cow Informs of Rasulullah sallaliahu alayhi wa sallam
Ibn 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 ilaaha illAllaah.”
When we reached Makkah we found Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. i.e.. It was He who was prophesised.
The Blessed Bodies of the Ambiyaa alayhimusalaam remain unspoiled
Aus bin Aus narrates the hadith:
Verily Allaah Ta’ala has made the bodies of the Ambiyaa haraam upon the earth.”
A Wolf Informs about the Advent of Rasulullah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam
Abu Sa’eed Khudree (ra) narrates the incident of a wolf, which said to a shepherd:
"Muhammad sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam is at Yathrib [Madina Munawwara], informing the people of events which have passed.”
Hanzalah bin Huzaim narrates: I was part of my grandfather’s delegation, which was sent to Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. When I was introduced, He (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) drew me closer, rubbed my head and said: May Allaah bless you.
A man was brought to Hanzalah (ra). His face had a tumour. Hanzalah (ra) recited Bismillah on the place, which the blessed hands of Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam had touched and then anointed this sick man.
The tumour disappeared.
Immunity from Heat and Cold
On the day of Khaibar, Rasulullah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam said:
I will soon give the flag to a person who loves Allaah and his Rasool. Allaah will grant him victory, and he will not flee from the battlefield.
Ali(ra) says: Rasulullah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam then called for me so that he may grant me the flag. I came with a sore eye, not being able to see. He placed some of his blessed saliva in my eye and said: 0 Allaah!
Protect him from the heat and cold. Thereafter, neither heat nor cold affected me.”
Effacing the Effects of Old Age
Zaid Al-Ansaari narrates: Rasulullah sallAllaahu alaybi wa sallam said to me: Draw closer. He then passed his blessed hands over my head and said: 0 Allaah! Make him handsome and perpetuate his handsomeness.
It is said that he reached beyond the age of a hundred, with only a small patch of his beard becoming white. He always had a cheerful face and it was never once gloomy, right until his death.
Miracles a source of Blessing
Imaam 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 SallAllahu alayhi wa sallam, and we heard the Tasbeeh of the food while Rasulullah Sallalahu alayhi wa sallam was eating it.”
water springing out from underneath his fingers
Narrated by Anas bin Malik:
I 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)
Eighty or more people perform ablution from a small painted stove pot (Mikhdab)
Narrated by Anas:
It 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).
(Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 4, Number 194)
A small bag of water provides drinking water for them and their animals
Narrated 'Imran Once 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."
Then 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."
Afterwards 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.
Abu '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 Psalms."
(Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 7, Number 340)
Miracle of the Prophet's invocation for rain
A 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.
(Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 115)
A jinn and an (unseen) creature prophsies the prophethood of the prophet muhammad
Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: I 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).
An (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)
A wasq of barley
Jabir 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)
Spout of water between his fingers
Anas 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.
