Isa, the 'Islamic Jesus' hits Iranian movie screens

* Now watch for the Christians to burn down embassies, kill unbelievers and run amok because Jesus has been blasphemed!

* Muslims believe Jesus will return, abolish the jiziyah, smash the crosses and kill the pigs. After that, the Islamic utopia is complete. The pigs, that’s us. Just in case you’re wondering.


Murder & Mayhem till the very last day:

Canon Patrick Sookhdeo, a convert from Islam to Christianity in 1969, said: “How would the Muslim community respond if I made a programme challenging Muhammad as the last prophet?’ He asserts that the Qur’an’s denial of Jesus’s divinity is ‘unacceptable’, not least because at his Second Coming it says he will destroy all the crosses.

Christians ought to revolt and demand a documentary on the alternative view to the hagiographical Islamic account of the life of Mohammed. One that might examine (impartially and objectively, of course) the historical assertions that he was a mass murderer, a torturer, rapist, child molester, thief, and a liar; that he was not a prophet, and that he plagiarised vast sections of the Qur’an from contemporary literature, and developed ‘Islam’ out of the primitive worship of a pagan moon god.

If one may broadcast a blasphemous documentary on the Qur’anic view of Jesus, then a fortiori ought one to be allowed to broadcast one on the biblical view of Mohammed, which would have to assert that he was not merely not the last prophet; he was not a prophet at all. Indeed, he manifests all the attributes of what the Bible terms a false prophet and an antichrist.

From Arab News/thanks to Mullah

TEHRAN, Jan 13, 2008 (AFP) – A director who shares the ideas of Iran’s hardline president has produced what he says is the first film giving an Islamic view of Jesus Christ, in a bid to show the ‘common ground’ between Muslims and Christians.


Nader Talebzadeh sees his movie, ‘Jesus, the Spirit of God,’ as an Islamic answer to Western productions like Mel Gibson’s 2004 blockbuster ‘The Passion of the Christ,’ which he praised as admirable but quite simply ‘wrong’.

‘Gibson’s film is a very good film. I mean that it is a well-crafted movie but the story is wrong — it was not like that,’ he said, referring to two key differences: Islam sees Jesus as a prophet, not the son of God, and does not believe he was crucified.

Talebzadeh said he even went to Gibson’s mansion in Malibu, California, to show him his film. ‘But it was Sunday and the security at the gate received the film and the brochure and promised to deliver it,’ though the Iranian never heard back.

Even in Iran, ‘Jesus, The Spirit of God’ had a low-key reception, playing to moderate audiences in five Tehran cinemas during the holy month of Ramadan, in October.

The film, funded by state broadcasting, faded off the billboards but is far from dead, about to be recycled in a major 20 episode spin-off to be broadcast over state-run national television this year.

Talebzadeh insists it aims to bridge differences between Christianity and Islam, despite the stark divergence from Christian doctrine about Christ’s final hours on earth.

‘It is fascinating for Christians to know that Islam gives such devotion to and has so much knowledge about Jesus,’ Talebzadeh told AFP.

* Drawbridge alert:

By making this film I wanted to make a bridge between Christianity and Islam, to open the door for dialogue since there is much common ground between Islam and Christianity,’ he said.


The director is also keen to emphasise the links between Jesus and one of the most important figures in Shiite Islam, the Imam Mahdi, said to have disappeared 12 centuries ago but whose ‘return’ to earth has been a key tenet of the Ahmadinejad presidency.

Talebzadeh made his name making documentaries about Iran’s 1980-1988 war against Iraq, an important genre in the country’s post-revolutionary cinema.

But such weighty themes, and his latest film on Jesus, compete with domestic gangster thrillers and sugary boy-meets-girl love stories, the movies that continue to draw the biggest audiences in the Islamic Republic.

The bulk of ‘Jesus, the Spirit of God’, which won an award at the 2007 Religion Today Film Festival in Italy, faithfully follows the traditional tale of Jesus as recounted in the New Testament Gospels, a narrative reproduced in the Koran and accepted by Muslims.

But in Talebzadeh’s movie, God saves Jesus, depicted as a fair-complexioned man with long hair and a beard, from crucifixion and takes him straight to heaven.

‘It is frankly said in the Koran that the person who was crucified was not Jesus’ but Judas, one of the 12 Apostles and the one the Bible holds betrayed Jesus to the Romans, he said. In his film, it is Judas who is crucified.

10 thoughts on “Isa, the 'Islamic Jesus' hits Iranian movie screens”

  1. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong! Jesus, the Son of God, was meant to die by man’s hand. Only then could he return to save us. Just because Mo and his Merry Band of Murdering Maruaders don’t believe this, doesn’t make Mel Gibson’s movie wrong. That is only their opinion. Also, the New Testament Gospels….I’m sure their “reproduction” in the Koran is adjusted to suit their needs also.

    If you really think about this, it says alot about the muslim way of thinking about death in general.

  2. “Everything that comes from Satan is a lie. According to the Bible. So one is lying and the other is not. I for one will believe the results or as the Bible also puts it the fruit.
    Matt 7:15-20
    15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 “You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 “So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 “A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19 “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 “So then, you will know them by their fruits.”

    Well going by the Bible we can learn of the true nature of God.

    Hebrews 6:18 “That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:”

    And in the bible we learn the nature of Satan also.

    John 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

    As for “Allah” we can learn the true nature from the Koran, which I gather from online sources.

    Sura 3:54 Arabic: Wa Makaru wa makara Allah wa Allah Amkaru al Makireen.

    In English it says, Sura 3:54 “and [they] deceived and Allah deceived and Allah is the best of deceivers”

    Likewise the phrase of Allah “being the best deceiver”. kheir ol makarein, is also used of Allah in Suras 8:30 and 10:21. Sura 10:21 says Allah is the fastest in planning/deceit

    Other references to the plotting/deceit/scheming of Allah are Sura 7:99; 27:50; 13:42; 14:46; 43:79; 86:15f.; 7:100; 4:14.

    In case people have questions, I gathered an etymology from online sources for the Arabic word: Makara

    “The Arabic word makara means to deceive, scheme, or plan. The Arabic Bible in Genesis 3:1 uses the same word for Satan. However, the Vand Dyck and Jerusalem Bibles use the root word hayala.
    This word “schemer” (maakir) is a very strong word which Wehr and Abdel-Nour define as “sly, cunning, wily”. The Arabic-Arabic unjid defines it with khuda`a which means exactly the same thing (by Bill Campbell in his book The Qur’an and the Bible in the Light of History and Science p.217-218).”

    Someone’s interpretation of Sura 3:54

    “The person who is a makir (same form as the word kafir) speaking of the attribute of a person is one who would outwit someone else to cause them harm. It speaks of one who would reveal the opposite of what he plans to do. The reality is that he is scheming evil for that person. So yes there is the sense of planning and scheming but mostly it means to trick, outwit and deceive for the purpose of overpowering and conquering the other. A makir is one who devises a secret scheme against someone else. Synonyms would be cheating, defrauding, double-crossing, deceiving, tricking, in all cases makara has the sense of defeating the one you have tricked.”

    So what is the context of Sura 3:54
    The context of this story is very important. Sura 3 is regarded to be the great dialogue of Muhammad with the Christians. Al-Tabari says here that the deceit of Allah applies to the time where the Jews wanted to kill Isa the son of Mary. In order not to be killed Allah put the appearance of Jesus’ face on someone else, who was crucified instead of Jesus.

    So, it’s the Atonement of our sins on Calvary that Allah is called khayr ulmakirin the most deceitful, claiming it never happened. This brings about one question, “Who would want to conceal this? Who would want to be a Makir and declare it never happened?” Here the true nature of Allah is revealed!

    I guess President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would know a lot about the methods of Makara and it’s Prince. We can watch President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad practice it all we want to.

    (I take no credit for this composition, since a lot of it is lifted from web sites with far more expertise in Biblical, Koranic, and Linguistic then I have. )

  3. I think it’s pretty shameful how these Koranists smear even Jesus. They depict him as a murderer and an idiot when they say he’ll return and kill all the Christians. But then again, murder and stupidity are all they know, so everything is viewed with the same warped mondset.

  4. And as I have stated before – they do nothing to reciprocate tolerance. Instead they continue to bash us while demanding we tolerate them and not talk about islam, or mohammed, or anything – but they have no problem with not doing the same in return.

  5. Time to get the UN to act under their resolution against defaming religions. Finally a true religion is being defamed.

  6. Excellent responses, especially from Senor Doeboy – thanks.

    IFL, don’t look for the UN to act against defaming Christianity and Jesus Christ; expect them to
    be complicit. I wondered if Talebzadeh has been pushing this blasphemy at forums like the “Alliance of Civilizations”, and had a look. Sure enough, even worse than that … it is intended
    to revive the “Gospel of Barnabas” and was well received at the “Conference on Dialogue among Civilizations” held in the Vatican ….

    Muslims must know that if they wish to wage war against the saints and martyrs of Jesus,
    there are consequences, far greater than “carbecues” and expressions of rage and civil
    mahyhem that they know so well. If they reject Jesus Christ as saviour and lord, they risk
    embracing a false messiah, as they have done with “prophet” Mo. The false messiah will
    destroy them, in accordance with Revelation 17.

    “Arts & Culture” Iranian style:

    ’Jesus’ Narrates Gospel of Barnabas

    [Talebzadeh said] “When the Day of Judgment comes, the Christians will realize that Islam is the only way to salvation of mankind and it will be presented to them by Christ the Redeemer“

    “We wanted to tell the Christians that many of the beliefs they cherish today are not that of Jesus’ but distorted verses,“ he said.

    “The film was well received at the Conference on Dialogue among Civilizations held in the Vatican, since it has romantic overtones and portrays a nice view of the apostles,“ he said.

    The blind lead the blind, Talebzadeh, and you are leading your Muslim followers and others
    to their doom.

  7. Mullah L-

    Youre certainly right on the UN doing nothing about defaming religion. Only the cult of death merits such protection as far as it’s concerned.

  8. ISLAMSFORLOSERS I read you comments and I saw that you are effected by media too much. I think you never read Quran either ( I read nearly completly of Gospel and half of the Pentateuch ). Before judge others, learn more than them what they believe and why they belive. After that you could judge them.

    Let me give you some example; you wrote that “they say he’ll return and kill all the Christians”. I am a muslim and I hear it first from you. In our believe, Christ will come to earth. He will not know himself as Christ until the time come. When he learned that he convoke all muslims and he will be leader of us at the end of time. There will be last war between humans (not as your think like war between muslim and Christans). It will be between believers and non believers. Deccal(Antichrist) is the leader of nonbelievers. Antichrist will come before Christ. So he will cause wars between Christians, Muslims and Jews to eachother. Our Prophet said that when you hear that Antichrist will come near you, gor as far as you can. Dont even think that I have strong faith to Allah(God) . You will lose your believe when He(Antichrist) speaks to you . He will make your heart full of suspicions.

    As you see, its totally different than what you wrote. I think this movie will show lots of people what muslim thinks about Prophet Christ and why they love him.

  9. From Bukhari’s translation of the hadeeths:

    Volume 3, Book 34, Number 425:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah’s Apostle said, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, son of Mary (Jesus) will shortly descend amongst you people (Muslims) as a just ruler and will break the Cross and kill the pig and abolish the Jizya (a tax taken from the non-Muslims, who are in the protection, of the Muslim government). Then there will be abundance of money and no-body will accept charitable gifts.

    The only logical interpretation of the above hadeeth says Jesus will kill the Christians upon his return and afterward the world will basically be a happy place. This certainly doesn’t make Jesus look good-most Christians find the idea of Jesus killing his followers ridiculous as well as offensive since he is considered the Prince of Peace and was never known to kill anyone for any reason in Biblical accounts.

  10. The Mujizas (Miracles) of Muhammad (Pbuh)

    The words below have been quoted from the book Mirat-i Kainat. The sources for the majority of mujizas (miracles) are given in that book, but we have not written them here. And those we have written were done as briefly as possible. There were many evidences to prove that Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a true prophet. Allah declared: “I would not have created anything, if you had not been created.” The existence of creatures proves not only the existence and the Oneness of Allah, but it also proves the reality of Muhammad (peace be upon him) being a true and superior prophet. The karamas (miracles) which occurred at the hands of saintly people (awliya) among his ummat (followers) are completely ascribable to him, too. This is because karamas are seen in those who are dependent on him and who follow his true path. Even all the miracles of the past prophets are deemed to be his miracles because all the Prophets wanted to be among his followers. In addition, all of them were created from his divine light. The Qasida-I Burda by Imam-i Busayri [who passed away in Egypt in 695 A.H. (1295 C.E.)] explains this reality wonderfully. The miracles of Muhammad (peace be upon him) have been divided into three groups, according to time. The first group contains the miracles seen from the time of the creation of his holy spirit until the time when his prophethood was announced, which is called “bi’set.” The second group includes those which occurred between the times of the bi’set and his death. The third group consists of the ones which occurred after his death and will continue to occur until the Day of Judgement. The first group is called “Irkhas”, the beginnings. Each group is divided into two parts: the ones seen and the ones understood by wisdom. His miracles are too numerous to count or to put a limit upon. The miracles in the second group were reported to be nearly three thousand. Eighty-six of the most well known are listed below:
    1- The greatest mujiza (miracle) of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the Qur’an al-karim. All the poets and men of letters up to now have admired its versification and meaning. They have not been able to duplicate its expression. The eloquence and brevity of the Qur’an al-karim are unlike the words of human beings. That is, if you added or omitted a vocable, the harmony in the words and their meanings would be lost. No one could find a word to substitute. Its versification is not like the poems of Arab poets. It reports numerous secret events that happened in the past or will happen in the future. Those who have heard and read it are unable to forget the pleasure they experienced. Those reading it do not become bored with it even though they are tired. Countless experiments have already proven that hearing or reading the Qur’an al-karim is good for getting rid of boredom. It has been witnessed that some people who heard the sound of the Qur’an al-karim died there on the spot from feeling fear and horror in their hearts. So many former enemies of Islam became Muslims as a result of listening to the Qur’an al-karim. Even though some enemies of Islam and those disbelievers with Muslim names such as “Muattala,” “Malahida,” and “Qaramita” tried to change, spoil and duplicate it, they could not accomplish their evil desires. The Torah and the Bible were changed by men, and they have continued to undergo repeated changes. All the sciences and valuable things which could not have been determined by way of experimentation, good morals, the virtues which give superiority to mankind, the good deeds which cause us to gain happiness in both worlds, knowledge about the beginning and the end of existence, and all the things which are harmful or useful for mankind have been reported either clearly or secretly in the Qur’an al-karim. Only experts on the Qur’an al-karim can understand its secrets. All the sciences and secrets existing in the Torah, Psalms of David and the Bible have been reported in the Qur’an al-karim. He revealed most of them to his beloved Prophet (peace be upon him). Hadrat Ali and Hadrat Hussein (may Allah be pleased with them) were reported to have known most of these sciences. Reading the Qur’an al-karim produces great happiness. Allah granted these blessings to his beloved Prophet’s followers. The angels are deprived of this benefaction. For this reason, they gather and listen to the Qur’an al-karim at the places where it is being read. All the commentaries (tafsir books) convey only a small amount of knowledge concerning the sciences in the Qur’an al-karim. On the Day of Judgement, Muhammad (peace be upon him) will read the Qur’an al-karim on a minbar (pulpit) and all those who hear it will understand all of its content.
    2- One of the greatest and most renowned miracles of Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the splitting of the moon into two. This miracle never fell to the lot of any other Prophet. When Muhammad (peace be upon him) was fifty-two years old, the leaders of the disbelievers from the Quraish came up to him and said, “If you are a prophet, split the moon into two parts. “Muhammad (peace be upon him) dearly wanted everybody, especially his relatives and his friends, to covert to Islam. He prayed raising up his hands. Allah accepted his prayers and split the moon into two parts. Each half of the moon was seen above different mountains. The disbelievers said, “Muhammad performed magic for us.” They did not become Muslims.
    A dog, looking at the moon barks.
    No fault of the moon here.
    The dogs always bark.
    Lacking of taste in the mouth indicates an illness.
    The most delicious drink tastes bitter to the sick.
    3- As the Muslims were in the midst of a battle fighting against the disbelievers, their water ran out. Muhammad (peace be upon him) dipped his hand into some water, and water began to flow from between his fingers. The water flowed into a receptacle that overflowed until he took his holy hand out of the water. Sometimes eighty, sometimes three hundred, sometimes fifteen hundred, and in the war of Tabuk, seventy thousand people and their animals drank this water and used it.
    4- One day, Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) went to his uncle Abbas’ home. After he had made his uncle and his children sit together he covered them up and prayed like this: “O My Allah! This is my uncle, my father’s brother. And these are my ahl-i bait (family). As I have covered my uncle and his family, please defend them from the hellish Fire!” After this prayer, the voice of ‘Amin’ was heard from the walls three times.
    5- One day some people wanted him to perform a miracle. He called to a tree some distance away from him. That tree came near to him dragging its roots and greeted him saying, “Ash’hadu an la ilaha illa’llah wa ash’hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasuluhu.” (I bear witness that there is no god except Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger and Prophet of Allah). Then the tree went back to its place.
    6- During the battle of Khaybar he was given some lamb chops to eat, but they had been poisoned. A voice was heard from the meat saying, “O Prophet of Allah! Do not eat me. I have been poisoned.”
    7- One day, our Prophet, told a man with an idol in his hand: “Will you convert to Islam if this idol talks to me?” The idolater said, “I have been worshipping this idol for fifty years, up to now it has never spoken to me. How can it talk to you?” Muhammad (peace be upon him) asked: “Who am I?” A voice was heard from the idol saying, “You are the Prophet of Allah.” The idolater became a Muslim immediately.
    8- There was a wooden column erected in the mosque in Medina. Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to lean upon that column during the khutba (sermons). It was called “Hannane.” After some time, a mimbar (pulpit) was built. So, he stopped leaning upon Hannane, but it began to cry. Everybody in the mosque heard the column crying. Muhammad (peace be upon him) came near the column and embraced it. Then it stopped crying. He said: “If I had not embraced it, it would have cried until the Day of Judgement.” This type of miracles were seen and reported many times.
    9- It was witnessed many times how the gravel or the food in his hand, sounding like bees, would recite the names of Allah.
    10- A disbeliever came and asked, “How can I know that you are the Prophet of Allah?” The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) answered, “Would you believe in me if that bunch of dates hanging on the tree comes near me when I order it?” He said that he would. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) called the bunch of dates, and they hobbled over to him. Then he said: “Go back to your place.” The dates went back to their original place again. The disbeliever who saw this miracle became a Muslim immediately.
    11- In Mecca, a few sheep from a herd were taken away by some wolves. The shepherds rushed upon them and rescued the sheep. At that moment, one of the wolves said, “Do you not fear Allah while taking our food.” The shepherd said, “O my God! What a surprise this is! How can a wolf speak?” The wolf responded saying: “What is really surprising is that Allah’s Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is performing miracles in Medina.” The shepherd came and reported it to the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and immediately became a Muslim.
    12- While walking out in the countryside, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) heard the same voice three times, saying, “O! The Prophet of Allah!” He looked and saw a deer fastened to a man sleeping near it. He asked the deer what it wanted. The deer said, “This man caught me, but I have two babies over there on the opposite hill. If you free me, I will feed them and come back again.” The Holy Prophet asked, “Will you keep your words, will you come back?” The deer promised saying, “I promise for the sake of Allah. If I do not come back the torment of Allah will be on me.” The Holy Prophet freed the deer. It came back after a while. The Holy Prophet again fastened it. At that moment, the man woke up and saw the Prophet and said, “O, Prophet of Allah, what can I do for you?” He told him: “Set this deer free!” The man unfastened the rope and set the deer free. The deer kicked up its heels from the ground cheerfully and said, “Ash’hadu an la ilaha illa’llah wa annake rasullullah,” (I bear witness that there is no god except Allah and you are the Messenger of Allah) and went away.
    13- One day the Prophet asked a peasant to convert to Islam. The peasant said if the Prophet revived his neighbors dead daughter he would convert to Islam. They went to her grave. He called the girl by her name. A voice was heard from the grave and she appeared. The Holy Prophet asked: “Do you want to come back to the world?” The girl answered, “O! Prophet of Allah! I do not want to come back to the world. I am happier here than I was in my father’s house. The next world for a Muslim is better than this world.” The peasant eye-witnessed these happenings and converted to Islam immediately.
    14- Jabir bin Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) cooked a sheep. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and his Companions ate it. He said: “Do not break its bones!” The Prophet gathered the bones and put his holy hands upon them and prayed. Allah revived the sheep.
    15- A dumb boy, who was quite grown up, was brought to The Holy Prophet. He asked the boy: “Who am I?” The boy answered, “You are the Prophet of Allah.” Afterwards he was able to talk until his death.
    16- After stepping on the egg of a snake, both eyes of a man became blind. He was brought to The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). He rubbed his holy spittle along his eyes; the blind man regained his sight, and even though he was eighty years old, he was able to thread a needle.
    17- Muhammad bin Hatib says, “I was young. Some boiled water was poured on me. My body was burned. My father took me to the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him). He rubbed his spittle along the burned places of my body and then prayed. Immediately, those parts were healed.
    18- A woman brought her bald son to the Prophet of Allah. He rubbed his holy hands on his head. The boy healed; his hair started to grow.
    19- The books Sunnan (traditions of the Holy Prophet) by Tirmizi and Nasai state: “A blind man came up to the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) and said: “O! Prophet of Allah! Pray to Allah so that I can see.” He said: “Perform a perfect ablution. Then recite this: ‘O! My Allah! I’m begging you. I want something from you by means of your dear Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). O! My dearest Prophet Muhammad! I’m begging my Allah by means of you. I want Him to accept my prayer for your sake. O my Allah! Make this exalted Prophet an intercessor for me! Please, accept my prayer for his sake!” The man did what he was told to do. His eyes started seeing right away. Muslims have always recited this prayer to attain their aims.
    20- The Prophet was traveling in a desert with Abu Talib. Abu Talib said that he was very thirsty. The Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) dismounted from his animal and asked Abu Talib: “Are you thirsty?” When he answered, “Yes!” he knocked his holy heel upon the ground. Water sprang out of the ground. He declared: “O! My uncle, drink this water!”
    21- During the war of Hudaybiya, they camped near a dry well. The soldiers complained of being thirsty. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) asked for a bucket of water. He performed his ablution with that bucket and spat into it. Then he ordered the soldiers to pour the water into the dry well. He asked for an arrow and then shot it into the well. Afterwards, everybody witnessed the dry well becoming filled with water.
    22- During another war, soldiers complained of being thirsty. The Prophet of Allah sent two soldiers to look for water. They saw a woman on a camel with two leather water-bottles and brought her to the Prophet. Muhammad (peace be upon him) wanted some water from the woman. He ordered them to pour her water into a receptacle. Afterwards all the soldiers came and filled their water receptacles and skin bags with water. The woman was given some dates and her skin bag of water was filled with the water. He declared: “Your water has not been decreased. Allah gave us the water.”
    23- While he was preaching a khutba (sermon) on the pulpit in Medina, somebody said, “O! Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him)! Due to the lack of water, our. children, animals and farms are perishing. Help us!” He raised up his hands and prayed. Although there were no clouds in the sky, clouds gathered and it began to rain immediately before he had time to rub his hands on his face. It continued to rain for some days. While he was preaching a sermon on the pulpit again, the same man said, “O! Prophet of Allah! We will perish because of the heavy rain.” The Prophet of Allah smiled and said: “O! My Allah! Grant mercy to your other creatures too!” The weather cleared up and the sun appeared.
    24- Jabir bin Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “I ran into heavy debt. I reported it to the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him). He came to my garden and walked around a pile of dates three times. He said to me: “Tell your creditors to come here!” Each one of them was given his due and nothing decreased from the original pile of dates.
    25- A woman sent some honey to him as a present. He accepted the honey and sent back the empty pot. But when she took her pot she saw that it was full of honey. The woman came back to the Prophet and asked, “O! Prophet of Allah. Why didn’t you accept my present? I wonder, what is my sin?” He answered: “We have accepted your present. The honey you see in your pot is the blessing given by Allah for your present.” The woman ate the honey with her children for months. It never decreased. One day, they inadvertently put the honey into another pot. In the new pot the honey was eventually used up. They reported this to the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him). He declared: “If it had been left in the pot I sent, they could have eaten it until the end of the world; it would not have decreased at all.”
    26- Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) says, “I brought a few dates to the Prophet of Allah. I asked him to bless them by prayer so that they would become prolific. He prayed and said, “Take them with you. Put them into a pot. When you want to eat some, put your hand into it and take some out. Do not take them out by pouring your pot out.” I carried that bag of dates with me day and night and ate them until the time of Hadrat Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him). I also let my companions eat them and gave handfuls of them as alms. I lost them on the day Hadrat Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him) was martyred.” (which was after 25 years).
    27- The Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) could speak the languages of all the animals, just like the Prophet Solomon. It was seen many times that some animals would come up to him and complain about their owners and others. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) used to report this to his Companions. During the battle of Hunain he ordered a white mule named “Duldul,” upon which he was riding: “Kneel down!” When Duldul knelt down, he took a handful of sand and scattered it on the disbelievers.
    28- It was witnessed many times that the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) had the power of divination. This type of miracle consists of three aspects. The first aspect concerned the events before his time. His answers to the disbelievers’ questions about those past events caused many enemies of Islam to become Muslim. The second aspect was related to the events of his own time. The third aspect dealt with describing the things that will happen in the world until the Day of Judgement and the life in the hereafter. Some of his miracles from the second and third aspects are written below: During the very first days of the invitation to Islam, some of the companions of the Prophet immigrated to Ethiopia after suffering from the hands of the disbelievers. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) as well as all of his Companions who did not leave Mecca were banned from all kinds of social activities, such as having relations with, buying from, selling to, and conversing with anyone except Muslims for three years. The polytheists of the Quraish wrote a testament declaring their decision and agreement and hung it on the wall of al-Kabat-al-Muazzama. Allah, the Almighty, caused a little worm [wood borer] named Arza to eat that written voucher. The little worm ate it completely except the small part where Bismik-Allahumma: (In Thine name. O! my Allah) was written. This event was explained to our Prophet (peace be upon him) by Angel Gabriel. Then our Prophet (peace be upon him) told it to his uncle Abu Talib. The next day Abu Talib went to see the prominent ones from among the disbelievers. He told them the Lord of Muhammad had sent a message to him. Abu Talib added, “If his report is true, will you please let the Muslims go wherever they want, and to see and talk to everybody as they did before? If what he said is not true, I will not keep him under my protection any more.” This suggestion was accepted by the leaders of the Quraish. A very large group of people gathered and went to the Ka’aba (in Mecca). Their written voucher was taken down and opened. It was eye-witnessed that it had been eaten completely except for the part on which the word Bismik-Allahumma: (In Thine name. O! my Allah) was written. Ambassadors of the Persian King Husrav came to Medina. One day, he called them and said: “Tonight, his son killed your Kesra.” A few days later, it was reported that Kesra was killed by his son. [Persian shahs were called Kesra.]
    29- One day to his wife Hafsa (may Allah be pleased with her) he declared: “Abu Bakr and your father will govern my ummat (followers).” With these words, he announced the good news that Hadrat Abu Bakr and Hafsa’s father, Hadrat Omar, would be khalifas in the future.
    30- Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) was charged with the duty of keeping the dates given as zakat (charity tax). He saw someone stealing the dates and captured him. He told him that he would take him to the Prophet. The thief implored for mercy saying that he was very poor and had a lot of children. Hadrat Abu Huraira set him free. The following day the Prophet of Allah called Abu Huraira and said: “What did the man whom you left last night do?” When Abu Huraira answered, he declared: “He deceived you. He will come again.” He came again the following night and he was captured again. He said imploringly: “Leave me for the sake of Allah,” and Hadrat Abu Huraira let him go free again. When he came again for the third night, this time his plea was of no use. The thief said: “If you spare me, I’ll teach you a few thing that will be useful for you.” His proposal was accepted by Abu Huraira. The thief said: “If you recite Ayat-Al Kursi (Verse 2:255 of the Holy Qur’an) just before you go to bed at night, Allah will protect you and Satan cannot come near you.” Then the thief went away. When the Prophet of Allah was told what happened the following day, he declared: “Now, he told the truth; however, he is a liar. Do you know who you talked to for three nights?” He answered that he did not know. Our Prophet declared: “That person was Satan.”
    31- Some soldiers were sent to a place called Muta to fight against the troops of the Roman Emperor. While the Prophet was on the mimbar (pulpit) in Medina, he reported that four commanders from among his followers had been martyred one after the other in Muta.
    32- While he was seeing Muaz Ibn Cabal (may Allah be pleased with him) off to Yaman to govern there, he accompanied him as far as the outskirts of Mecca and gave him a lot of advice and declared: “We shall not see each other until the Day of Judgement.” While Muaz was in Yaman the Prophet of Allah passed away in Medina.
    33- While in the throes of death pains, he said to his daughter Fatima: “You will be the first of my relatives to come to me.” No one among his relatives died before Hadrat Fatima (may Allah be pleased with her), who died six months after his death.
    34- To a person called Kays bin Shammas (may Allah be pleased with him), he said: “You will lead an easy life and die as a martyr.” He was martyred in the fight against Musseylemetool Kezzab in Yemame when Hadrat Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) was the khalifa. He also foretold that Hadrat Omar, Hadrat Uthman and Hadrat Ali (may Allah be pleased with them) would be martyred.
    35- He announced the good news that the countries of the Persian Emperor Kesra and Roman Emperor Kaiser would be captured by the Muslims and their treasures would be spent in the way of Allah.
    36- He predicted that many of his ummat (followers) will go to war by sea and that Ummi Hiram, a female Muslim (may Allah be pleased with her), will be present in that war. When Hadrat Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him) was the Khalifa, the Muslims went to the island of Cyprus by ship and fought the unbelievers. The above-mentioned lady was together with them.
    37- One day the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) was sitting on a high place. He looked at the people around him and said: “Can you also see what I have seen: I swear that I see the fitnas (disorder, rebellion) which will occur between your houses and in the streets.” On the day when Hadrat Uthman was martyred and again during the time of Yazid, many great disturbances occurred in Medina. A great many people were killed in the streets.
    38- One day he foretold that one of his wives would rebel against the Khalifa. When Hadrat Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) laughed at his words, he declared: “O Humayra! Do not forget my words! Perhaps you will be that woman.” Then he looked at Hadrat Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) and said: “If the verdict of this case depends on you, treat her mildly.” Thirty years later, Hadrat Aisha fought Hadrat Ali and was captured by Hadrat Ali. Hadrat Ali sent her from Basra to Medina respectfully.
    39- Once, he said to Hadrat Muawiyah (may Allah be pleased with him) [who passed away in Damascus in 60 A.H. (680 A.D.)]), “If you rule my followers in the future, give rewards to those who do useful things. Forgive those who will do harmful things. “Hadrat Muawiyah (may Allah be pleased with him) governed Damascus for twenty years during the khalifate of Hadrat Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him), and later he was the khalifa for twenty more years as well.
    40- One day, he declared: “Muawiyah can never be defeated.” During the war of Siffin, Hadrat Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “If I had heard this tradition, I would not have fought with Muawiyah” (may Allah be pleased with him).
    41- To Ammar bin Yaser (may Allah be pleased with him) he said: “Those who are rebellious and wicked will kill you.” He was martyred while he was fighting against Hadrat Muawiyah (may Allah be pleased with him) on Hadrat Ali’s side.
    42- For Hasan, who was the son of his daughter Fatima, he declared: “This son of mine is very blessed. Allah will make him the means by which peace is established between two great armies of Muslims.” When Hasan was ready to fight against Muawiyah (may Allah be pleased with him) with a great army, he ceased to do so and gave the khalifate, which was his right, to Hadrat Muawiyah (may Allah be pleased with him) in order to prevent disorder and the killing of many Muslims.
    43- Abdullah Bin Zubair (may Allah be pleased with him) drank the blood of Hadrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) while he was being cupped. When Hadrat Muhammad saw this he declared: “Do you know what human beings are going to do to you? You will also do a lot of things for mankind. The Hell Fire will not burn you.” When Abdullah Bin Zubair called himself the khalifa in Mecca, Abdulmalik bin Marwan sent Hajjat to Mecca with a great army. He captured Abdullah and killed him.
    44- After looking at the mother of Abdullah Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) he said: “You will have a son. Bring him to me when he is born.” When they brought the baby, he recited the adhan and the iqama into his ears and rubbed his holy spittle along the child’s mouth and gave him the name “Abdullah” and then handed the baby to its mother, and then said: “Take away the father of the khalifas.” When the father of the child, Hadrat Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him), heard this he came up to the Prophet of Allah and asked the meaning of those words. He answered: “Yes, I said so. That child is the father of the khalifas. A person from among his descendants will perform salat with Seffah, Mahdi and Hadrat Jesus.” A large number of khalifas governed the Abbasid State. All of them were the descendants of Abdullah Ibn Abbas.
    45- Once he declared: “Lots of people called Shiah (Shiite) will appear among my ummat. These people will be outside of the Islamic Religion.”
    46- He prayed a great deal for his companions. The good results of his prayers were seen by them. Hadrat Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) says, “The Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) wanted to send me to Yaman as a judge. I told him ‘O! Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him), I do not know how to judge! He put his holy hand on my chest and prayed “O! My Allah! Make his heart know the true things. Make him always tell the truth.” I used to understand who was correct among those who came to me with complaints, and I used to judge in a just way.
    47- Those ten persons who received the good news of going to paradise by Hadrat Muhammad are called “Ashara-i Mubashshara.” Among them, for Sad bin Wakkas (may Allah be pleased with him), he prayed: “O! My Allah! Cause his arrows to hit their targets and accept his prayers!” After that every prayer of Sad bin Wakkas was accepted and each arrow he shot hit the enemy.
    48- Putting his holy hands on the forehead of the son of his uncle, Abdullah bin Abbas, he prayed: “O! My Allah! Make him a great savant in religion, make him the owner of knowledge. Grant him the knowledge of the Qur’an al-karim.” After that, he became the greatest savant of that time in all sciences, especially in Qur’anic commentary, Islamic traditions and Islamic law. The Companions of the Prophet and their students used to learn everything from him. He was called Tarjuman-ul Qur’an, Bahrul-ilm and Raisul Muffessirin. Islamic countries were filled with his students.
    49- For Anas bin Malik (may Allah be pleased with him), one of his servants, he prayed: “O! My Allah! Give him lots of children and property. Give him a long life. Forgive his sins.” In time, he became rich. His trees and vineyards gave fruit every year. He had more than one hundred children. He died at the age of one hundred and ten. While he was dying he said: O my Allah! You have accepted and granted three of the prayers that were made for me by Your beloved Prophet! I wonder if you have accepted the fourth one, too. He heard a voice: “I have accepted the fourth one, too. Take it easy.”

    55- “Every Prophet’s prayer is accepted. Every Prophet prayed for his followers in the world. I pray that Allah gives me permission to intercede for my followers on the Day of Judgement. I hope my prayer will be accepted. I shall intercede for all of them except those who are disbelievers,” said our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
    56- Having gone to some villages near Mecca, he attempted to convert them to Islam. They did not accept. He prayed that a famine would befall them just like the one witnessed in Egypt during the time of the Prophet Joseph (peace be upon him). In that year such a great famine occurred that those people had to eat carcasses.
    57- Utayba, the son of his uncle, Abu Lahab, did not believe Hadrat Muhammad and annoyed him very much although he was the son-in-law of the Prophet of Allah. He divorced his holy daughter Ummu Gulsum Khatoon and said bad things. Being deeply worried about this, he prayed, saying “O! My Allah! Send one of the dogs to him!” While they were on their way to Damascus for trading, one evening when he was sleeping among his friends, a lion came and sniffed them one by one. When it approached Utayba, it grabbed him and tore him into pieces.
    58- A person was eating with his left hand. He said: “Eat with your right hand.” The person lied and said: “My right hand does not move.” He declared: “May your right hand no longer move.” Until his death, he could not move his right hand up to his mouth.
    59- He sent a letter to the Persian King Husrev Parviz to convert him to Islam. Vile Husrev tore the letter into pieces and killed the envoy that brought the letter. When the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) heard this, he was deeply sorry and prayed: “O! My Allah! Tear up his property as he tore up my letter.” Husrev was stabbed with a dagger by his son, Sherawaih. While Hadrat Omar was the khalifa, the Muslims conquered the entire country of Persia, and Husrev’s descendants and property disappeared.
    60- While the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) was making amr-i maruf (calling people to Islam) and Nahy-i Munkar (prohibiting disbelief) and giving good advice in the city, the vile Hakem bin ‘As, who was the father of Mervan, coming after him, used to open and close his eyes, pucker his face, and thus ridicule the Prophet. When the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) saw his bad behavior, after turning back, he declared: “Remain in the way you show yourself!” Hakem’s face and eyes remained moving until he died.
    61- Allah saved His beloved Prophet from many calamities. Abu Jahl was the greatest enemy of the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him). Once when he held up a large stone in order to hit the Prophet’s holy head, Jahl saw two snakes on the shoulders of the Prophet of Allah. Suddenly the stone dropped down from his hands and he ran away.
    62- When the Prophet was performing his prayer beside the Ka’ba (in Mecca), the vile Abu Jahl said, “It is time!” he wanted to kill the Prophet with a knife, but suddenly he ran away. When his friends asked him why he was afraid, he answered: “I saw a canal that was full of fire between Hadrat Muhammad and me. A lot of people were waiting for me. If I had walked one more step, they would have thrown me into the fire. I became very frightened. When the Muslims heard this and asked the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) he declared: “The angels of Allah would have caught and torn him into pieces.”
    63- While the prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) was lying under a tree alone during the Kattan war in the third year of the Hegira, a disbelieving wrestler called Dasur came up to him with a sword in his hand and said, “Who will rescue you from me?” When the Prophet of Allah answered: “Allah will rescue me,” the angel called Gabriel appeared as a human being and hit the chest of the disbeliever. Having fallen to the ground, the disbeliever’s sword dropped from his hand. Taking the sword into his hand, the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “Who will rescue you from me?” The disbeliever begged by saying, “Except you, there is no blessed person who will rescue me?” The Holy Prophet released and forgave him. After that, the disbeliever converted to Islam and caused many other people to convert to Islam.
    64- In the fourth year of the Hegira, while the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) was talking to his Companions under the wall of a Jewish fortress in “Bani Nadr,” from above a Jew wanted to drop a big mill stone on his head. When he touched the stone, both of his hands were crippled.
    65- In the ninth year of the Hegira countless people who came from distant places were converting to Islam. Two disbelievers called Amir and Erbed joined them and tried to kill the Prophet of Allah. While Amir was saying that they wanted to embrace Islam, Erbed wanted to unsheathe his sword from behind, but he could not do it. When Amir signalled to ask him why he was waiting, the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) declared: “Allah saved me from your harm.” When they left, Amir asked Erbed why he had not kept his word. He answered: “What could I do? Whenever I wanted to unsheathe my sword, I saw you between him and me. A few days later, the sky, although it was clear, filled with clouds immediately. Then lightning struck and both Erbed and his camel died.
    66- Once, after the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) had performed his ablution and had put on one of his leather shoes, he then extended his hand to take the other one, but a bird captured the shoe and shook it off in the air. A snake fell down out of it. After that, the bird put the shoe on the ground. Henceforth, shaking shoes before putting them on has become a tradition.
    67- The Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) had appointed some guards who were to look after him in the deserts and in the wars. When the sixty-seventh verse in Chapter Maida was revealed with the meaning: “Allah saves you from the harm of human beings,” he gave up doing this. After that, he used to walk about alone among his enemies and sleep alone. He never felt afraid.
    68- Anas bin Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) had a handkerchief given to him by the Prophet (peace be upon him). The Prophet of Allah wiped his holy face with it. Anas also used to wipe his face with it, and when it was dirty he used to leave it in a fire. The fire never burned the handkerchief, but it burned the dirt and the handkerchief would become clean.

    70- A disease called urtiker (urticaria) appeared on the body of Utbe in Farkat (may Allah be pleased with him). The Prophet (peace be upon him) had him take off his clothes and spat on his holy hands; he then rubbed his hands on the patient’s body. The sick person recovered. His body emitted a wonderful scent. That state continued for a long time.
    71- Salman-i Farisi, (may Allah be pleased with him), having left Iran, set off on a journey over many different countries in order to find the true religion. While on the way to Arabia with a caravan, which belonged to a tribe named Bani Kalb, in a place named Wadi-ul-qura, he was betrayed and sold as a slave to a Jew. And, in turn, this man sold him as a slave to another Jew, his relative, from Medina. He felt great pleasure to hear that the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) had entered Medina. He was a Christian scholar. He had come to Arabia to see and believe in the final Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) because he had been advised by his last guide who was also a great scholar. That scholar taught him the distinguishing features of The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him), so he knew that The Holy Prophet would never accept alms, but that he would accept presents. He also knew that there existed a prophetical seal between his two shoulders, and that he would perform many mujizas (miracles). Salman-i Farisi brought some dates to The Holy Prophet to give as alms. The Holy Prophet never ate any of them. He also brought as many as twenty-five dates on a plate as a present. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) ate from the plate; all his Companions (Sahabat-al-kiram) ate, too. The number of the stones of the dates eaten was as many as one thousand. So, he eye-witnessed a miracle of The Holy Prophet. On the next day, while they were in a burial ceremony, he thought about seeing the prophetical seal of Muhammad (peace be upon him). The Holy Prophet intuitively understood what he thought. He pulled his holy shirt up and showed the (Muhr-i Nubuwwat). At that moment, Salman-i Farisi (may Allah be pleased with him) became a Muslim. After some years, it was decided that he was going to be freed on the condition that he pay sixteen hundred dirhams (2.8 lbs) of gold and three hundred palm trees. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) heard about this. He planted 299 palm trees with his holy hands. Those trees began to give fruit on the same day they were planted. One of the trees had been planted by Hadrat Umar (may Allah be pleased with him). This tree did not give any fruit. Pulling it out The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) (peace be upon him) planted it again with his holy hands. This one also gave fruit immediately. He gave Salman (may Allah be pleased with him) a gold piece as big as an egg that was obtained in a war. Salman told the Prophet it was too little and that it did not weigh sixteen hundred dirhams. After taking the gold into his holy hands, he gave it back to Salman. He said: “Take this to your owner!” He paid his debt to his owner with half of it and half of it was left to Salman.
    72- One day while the Prophet (peace be upon him) was performing prayer, Satan came up and tried to break his prayer. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) caught him with his holy hands. He released him after Satan had promised not to come and disturb his prayer again.
    73- Abdullah bin Ubey bin Selul, who was the leader of the munafiqs (hypocrite) in Medina called The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) just before dying and begged him, “Please, make the shirt you are wearing a shroud for me.” Since he used to give whatever was asked of him he gave his shirt to Abdullah. The Prophet even performed his funeral prayers, Admiring this generosity of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) one thousand hypocrites in Medina converted to Islam.
    74- Valid Ibn Mugira, As In Vail, Haris Ibn Kays, Esvad Ibn Yagus and Ibn Muttalib, disbelievers from among the Quraish, worried the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) more than the others. Gabriel (peace be upon him) brought the ninety-fifth ayat (verse) with the meaning: “We punish those who mock you,” and signalled to Velid’s foot, to the heel of the second one, to the nose of the third one, to the head of the fourth one, and to the eyes of the fifth one. An arrow entered deeply into Valid’s foot. But he was too proud to take it out; to him it seemed a humiliating thing. The iron in the arrow entered his blood vessel there and caused sciatica. A thorn entered As’s heel. It became very swollen. Haris’s nose continuously bled. Esvad struck his head on a tree while he was joyfully resting under it and the other, Esvad, became blind. Finally, all of them died.
    75- The head of the Dos Tribe, Tufayl, had converted to Islam in Mecca before the Hegira. He wanted a sign from The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) (peace be upon him) in order to convert his tribe to Islam. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) prayed: “O! My Allah! Grant him a sign.” When Tufayl went back to his tribe, a light shone between his two eyebrows. Tufayl said, “O! My Allah! Take this sign from my face and put it on another part of my body.” He thought to himself, if some people see this on my face, they will think I have been punished for leaving their religion. His prayer was accepted and that light was taken away. It shone like a candle at the end of his whip that was in his hand. In the course of time, the people in his tribe converted to Islam.
    76- There was a very beautiful woman among the Bani Naccar tribe in Medina. A jinn, after falling in love with her, used to come to her home. One day, after the Prophet (peace be upon him) had moved to Medina, the woman noticed that the jinn was sitting on the wall in front of her house. Therefore, she asked the jinn why he gave up coming into her house. He answered: Fornication and all other harams have been forbidden by the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him).
    77- In the war called Biri Mauna, after breaking their word, the disbelievers martyred seventy of the Prophet’s Companions. One of them was Amir Ibn Fuhayra, who was a freed slave of Hadrat Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) and one of the first converts to Islam. After the disbelievers had bayoneted him, he was taken to heaven by angels right before the eyes of the disbelievers. When The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) was informed about this, he declared: “The angels of paradise have buried him, and they have taken his spirit up to paradise.”
    78- The disbelievers having captured a Sahaba (companion of the Holy Prophet) called Habib, took him to Mecca and hung him there. They left him hanging with the thought that the disbelievers will see him and be pleased. He was left there hanging for forty days. His body neither became rotten nor putrefied. Fresh blood continuously came out of his body. After hearing about this, the Prophet (peace be upon him) sent two men, Zubair bin Awwam and Miqdad bin Aswadi (peace be upon them), there secretly, and they took him down from the gallows. While they were bringing him to Medina, seventy horsemen were seen behind them. The two men left Habib on the ground in order to save themselves. At that moment, the ground was split and Habib disappeared. Witnessing this event, the disbelievers turned back and went away.
    79- Sad bin Muaz (may Allah be pleased with him) was wounded in the battle of Uhud. After a while, he died. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) reported that seventy thousand angels were present during his funeral prayers. While his grave was being dug, a wonderful scent was emanating from his grave.
    80- In the seventh year of the Hegira, The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) sent letters to Nejashi, the emperor of Ethiopia; to the Roman emperor, Heraclius; to the Persian King, Husrev; to the Byzantine governor in Egypt, Mukavvas; to the Byzantine governor of Damascus, Haris; and to Semame, the Sultan of Oman. Thus he invited all of them to become Muslim. The envoys that took those letters did not know the languages of the places they would go to. However, the following morning, they started speaking those languages.
    81- Zayd Bin Haris (may Allah be pleased with him), one of the greatest Sahabas (companion of the Holy Prophet), was going to a distant land. The mule rider, whom he had hired, wanted to kill him. Getting permission, Zayd bin Haris performed two rakats of salat. Then he said: “Ya Arhamerrahimin,” (O! Most Gracious and Most Merciful) three times. As he said each one, a voice saying, “Do not kill him!” was heard. The mule rider went out thinking that there was somebody outside, and then came back in. After the third recitation, a cavalryman with a sword in his hand appeared and killed the mule rider. Then turning to Zaid, he said, “When you began to say, “Ya! Arhamarrahimin,” I was in the seventh heaven. When you said it for the second time, I reached the first heaven. At the moment you recited it for the third time, I was here and rescued you.” Zaid understood that he was an angel.
    82- A Sahaba (companion of the prophet) named Safina, who was freed by The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him)’s wife, Ummu Salama (may Allah be pleased with her), and served the Prophet loyally, was captured by disbelievers during the war against the Romans. He escaped from them and on his way back he met an astonishing lion. He told the lion he was the servant of Muhammad (peace be upon him) and what had happened to him. The lion rubbed himself on Safina and said, “Walk with me!” They walked together until Muslim soldiers were seen. Then, the lion left him.
    83- A man called Cahcahi Gaffari rebelled against the Khalifah, Hadrat Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him). He broke over his knees the baton that The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) (peace be upon him) used to carry. After a year, he developed the disease anthrax on his knees and died.
    84- Hadrat Muawiya (may Allah be pleased with him), who had come to Medina for pilgrimage, wanted to take the Minbar-i Sharif (the pulpit of Hadrat Muhammad) to Damascus, in order to be blessed. When they began to move the minbar (pulpit), the sun was eclipsed. In the darkness the stars were seen. Hadrat Muawiya gave up the idea.
    85- In the battle of Uhud, one of the eyeballs of Abu Katade (may Allah be pleased with him) was plucked out and fell on his cheek. He was brought to The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). After putting the eyeball back into its place with his holy hand, he prayed, saying: “O! My Allah! Make his eye beautiful.” This eye was more beautiful than the other one. He used to see more clearly with that eye. Once one of the grandsons of Abu Katade came to the Khalifah, Omar bin Abdulaziz. Omar asked: “Who are you?” By way of a poem, he answered that he was the grandson of that man whose eye had been replaced by The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). When the Khalifah heard this poem he praised Allah and gave him presents.
    86- Iyas bin Seleme says, “In the Haybar War, The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) sent me to call Ali (may Allah be pleased with him). Ali had a pain in his eyes. By holding his hand, I led him with difficulty. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) spat on his blessed fingers and rubbed them on the eyes of Ali. Putting the flag in Ali’s hand, he sent him to Khaybar to fight. The gate, which up until that time could not be opened, was dismantled by Ali, and all the Sahabas (companions) entered the castle.
    Many, many mujizas (miracles) of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) are written in the books Shawahid-un-nubuwwa by Molla Abdurrahman Jami (rahima-hullahu ta’ala) and Huccetullahi alal- alamin by Yusuf-i Nabhani. The book Shawahid-un- nubuwwa is written in the Persian Language. It was also translated into Turkish.
    Some Miracles of the Prophet Muhammad
    At this point I would like to bring to the notice of the reader that the Prophet was granted many miracles by Allah (the Lord of the heavens and the earth) and some of them are as follows: –
    • The Holy Qur’an is the living miracle bestowed by Allah upon the Prophet (PBUH) and this Allah’s Book was revealed to him through the holy spirit (Gabriel) and today 1400 years have passed and nobody has been able to change a single letter or produce its imitation as it is said in the Qur’an (See Sura Hijr, 15:9), and the statement of the Prophet “Before me, every Prophet was given a miracle and they practiced it during their life-time: i.e., Jesus used to cure the sick and make the dead alive, etc., Moses was given the stick etc., and I have been given the permanent miracle of the Qur’an till the Hour is established, so I hope that my follower will be more in number than all the other apostles’ as my miracle will last till the Day of Resurrection, and it is a Glorious Book; when any one reads it, even if he is a pagan, etc., he is convinced that it was not written by any human being or any created thing (angels, etc.,) but it ifrom the Creator of the heavens anthe earth”
    • The splitting of the moon: Narrated Anas that the Meccans requested Allah’s Apostle to show them a miracle, so he showed them the splitting of the moon.
    • The crying of the stem of the date-palm tree in the Prophet’s Mosque:
    • Narrated Ilbn “Umar thghat the Prophet used to deliver his Khutba (religious talk) while leaning against a trunk of a date-palm tree. When he had the pulpit made and used it instead, the trunk started crying and the Prophet went to it, rubbing his hand over it (to stop its crying)
    • The flowing of the water from among the fingers of the Allah’s Apostle.
    • The Prophet‘s meals used to glorify Allah while he ate, and this glorification was heard by the companions of the Prophet.
    • Stones used to greet the Prophet (PBUH) whenever he passed through the lanes of Mecca.
    • The throwing out of a dead body of a Christian by the earth: narrated Anas: There was a Christian who embraced Islam and read Surat-al-Baqara and Al-Imran and he used to write the revelation for the Prophet (PBUH) Later on he reverted to Christianity and he used to say” Muhammad (PBUH) knows but what I have written for him“ Then Allah caused him to die and the people buried him but in the morning they found that the earth had thrown out his body. They said, “This is the deed of Muhammad (PBUH) and his Companions. They have open the grave of our companion and took his body out because he ran away from them, “so they again dug the grave deeper for him, but in the morning they again found that earth had thrown the body out. They said, “ This is a deed of Muhammad (PBUH) and his Companions”. So they dug a third grave for him as deep as they could, but in the morning they found that the earth had thrown the body out. Then they believed what had befallen him was not done by mankind, and they had to leave the body on the ground.
    • The screening (shading) by the trees for the Prophet (PBUH) to answer the call of nature.
    • The rising of water in the well at Hudaibiya after it had dried.
    • The increasing in the amount of dates in the garden of Jabir bin “Abdullah after the Prophet (PBUH) went round the heap of dates and invoked Allah for his Blessings.
    • Speaking of a wolf: It has been written that a wolf also spoke to one of the companions of the Prophet (PBUH) near Medina, as narrated in Fatah-ul-Bari. Narrated Unais bun “ Amr: Ahban bin Aus said, “ I was amongst my sheep. Suddenly a wolf caught a sheep and I shouted t it. The wolf sat on its tall and addressed me saying, “Who will look after it (i.e., the sheep) when you will be busy and not able to look after it? Do you forbid me the provision, which Allah has provided me? “Ahban added,“ I clapped my hands and said, “By Allah, I have seen anything more curious and wonderful than this! ‘On that the wolf said, There is something more curious and more wonderful than this; that is Allah “s Apostle (PBUH) in those palm trees inviting people to Allah (i.e., Islam ‘ “Unais further said “Then Ahban went to Allah ‘s Apostle (PBUH) and informed him what happened and embraced Islam.
    The Mi’raj: The Ascent of the Prophet (PBUH) to the heavens.
    (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him)
    by Z. Fatimah
    During a war, the soldiers complained of being thirsty. The Holy Prophet Mohummed (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) sent two soldiers to look for some water. They saw a woman on a camel and brought her to the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him).
    After getting the old woman’s permission, Mohummed (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) ordered the soldiers to pour the water into a receptacle. A little time later all the soldiers came and filled their water receptacles and skin bags with water. The woman was given some dates and her skin bag of water was filled to the top. Prophet Mohummed (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) declared: “Your water has not decreased. Allah Almighty gave us the water.”
    Hazrat Zaid Bin Haris (May Allah be pleased with him), one of the greatest sahabas, was going to a distant land. The mule rider whom he had hired, wanted to kill him. After getting permission, Hazrat Zaid Bin Haris (May Allah be pleased with him) performed two rakaats of salaat. Then he said, “Ya Arhamarrahimin” three times. As he said each one, a voice saying “Do not kill him!” was heard.
    The mule rider went out thinking there was somebody outside, and then came back in. After the third recitation, a cavalryman with a sword in his hand appeared and killed the mule rider. Turning to Hazrat Zaid (May Allah be pleased with him) he said, “when you began to say ‘Ya Arhamarrahimin’, I was in the seventh heaven. When you said it for the second time, I reached the first heaven. And the moment you recited it for the third time, I was here and rescued you from the mule rider.” Hazrat Zaid (May Allah be pleased with him) realised that he was an angel.
    Once our sweet Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) sent a letter to the king of Persia named Husret Parviz, to convert him to Islam. When the vile Husrev received and read the letter he tore it to bits and killed the envoy who brought the letter.
    When the Prophet of Allah Ta’ala (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) heard about this He was deeply sorry and prayed, “Oh! My Allah! Tear up his (Husrev’s) property as he tore up my letter.” Husrev was stabbed by a dagger by his own son.
    While Hazrat Omar was the Khalifa (ruler), the Muslims conquered the entire country of Persia, and Husrev’s descendants and property disappeared.
    While the Prophet of Allah Ta’ala (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) was calling people to Islam and advising people and telling people about Islam in the city, and prohibiting disbelief, the vile Hakem Bin As, the father of Mervan, come after him. Whilst walking behind our sweet Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) the vile Hakem pulled faces behind his back and opened and closed his eyes and puckered his face, and thus ridiculed and made fun of our Prophet Mohummed(Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him).
    When the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) noticed him pulling faces behind his back, he turned around and declared “Remain in the way you show yourself!” Hakem’s eyes remained moving continuously until the day he died.
    One day whilst our sweet Holy Prophet(Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) was performing his prayer, Satan came up to him and tried to break Prophet Mohummed’s (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) prayer. Prophet Mohummed (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) caught Satan with his Holy hands. He released him after Satan had promised not to come and disturb his prayer again.
    Our Prophet Mohummed (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) said, “Every Prophet’s prayer is accepted. Every Prophet prayed for his followers in the world. I pray that Allah Ta’ala gives me permission to intercede for my followers on the Day of Judgement. I hope my prayers will be accepted. I will intercede for all of them except those who are disbelievers.”
