The Prophets and Messengers that came before us, were sent to guide humanity to the true religion of Allah. They all had the same job which is to teach people how to worship Allah and lead a righteous life. They taught this through exemplifying true sincerity and honesty in every action they did so much so that even their enemies considered them as honest and trustworthy people. These traits that Allah has instilled in them are very important as they serve as a backbone to their claims about the unseen. Allah also attributed miracles to them to remove any doubts that these men were not sent by Allah. Many of these miracles were explicitly mentioned in the Quran which means that as Muslims we must confirm that these events did in fact take place.
The Prophet Muhammad was no exception, he performed miracles that cannot be possible for any other human being to perform without the help of Allah. He was given many miracles throughout his life. This article we will explore six miracles of the Prophet Muhammad that you may not have known:
1. Prophet Muhammad’s Miracle of the moon splitting
When the unbelievers challenged the Prophet to perform a miracle. He pointed towards the moon and by the will of Allah, it split into two.
‘That the Meccan people requested Allah’s Messenger () to show them a miracle, and so he showed them the splitting of the moon.’
After some time of staying in that state, it eventually converged back to its original state. Although the disbelievers saw this event take place right in front of them as clear as crystal they still disbelieved calling the Prophet a magician.
2-Prophet Muhammad’s miracle of Isra and Miraj
This miracle refers to the night journey Muhammad made with the angel Gabriel. He
Went from Mecca to Jerusalem. From there he ascended up to the heavens to hold a
Communion with Allah. By the time he returned to Mecca it was still night time.
3-. Prophet Muhammad’s miracle of the tree that cried
The Prophet ﷺ would rest against a dried trunk and woulre. When the Prophet’s companions finally built him a pulpit to give the Friday
Sermon from, he heard a sound that resembled the crying of a baby camel. He went
Down from the pulpit and made his way to the tree to embrace it.
4-‘The Prophet peace be upon him used to stand by a stem of a date-palm tree (while delivering a sermon). When the pulpit was placed for him we heard that stem crying like a pregnant she-camel till the Prophet (ﷺ) got down from the pulpit and placed his hand over it.’
