Does Muhammad (pbuh) have miracles other than the Qur’an?
The value of Muhammad as messenger and prophet is well established in Qur’an and Islamic beliefs. In recent years, however, the dead thinking of some Muslim fanatics, have shaming Islam and contribute in the negative view of the great religion in the East and West alike. They exaggerate according to their mental powers of Belief and Religious Myths. Muhammad as we know, describes himself in many narrations that he is different from all messengers and prophets. He is the last one, he had no miracles other than the miracle of Qur’an. He was simple man, a human walks in the market, marries, and have no guarantees to get into Heaven without the will of God.
BUT those dogmatic people who think they represent Islam, have ignorant one sided opinion creates as many previous religious men did a new picture for the Prophet, unlike his character. They bring false narrations made him much powerful in making miracles than Jesus in returning life to a goat. Or bringing a girl from her tomb. These false narrations made innocently or otherwise, in times narrators think they were doing good to Islam and the Messenger himself. But they provide the evidence that they did not use logic or straight mental abilities. Therefore, such myths should be prevented and revised to give a bright picture for Islam.
By believing these (Myths) narrations or rejecting them, the majority of Muslims (mostly ignorant or illiterate) functionally in the mosques or privately learning people is a disastrous to Islam.
For example, this hadith (saying) narrated by Imam Hasan Basri (r.a) in Arabic:
روى الحسن أن رجلا جاء إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال: إني قدمت من سفر لي فبينا بنت خماسية تدرج حولي في وصيفها وحليها أخذت بيدها فانطلقت بها إلى وادي فلان فطرحتها فيه فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لأبيها «ما كان اسمها» . فقال: فلانة. فقال النبي «يا فلانة أجيبي بإذن الله» ، فخرجت الصبية وهي تقول: لبيك يا رسول الله وسعديك، فقال لها: «إن أبويك قد أساءا فإن أحببت أن أردك إليهما» ، فقالت: لا حاجة لي فيهما وجدت الله خير أب منهما
The English translation :
Imam Hasan Basri (r.a) narrated , “ A certain man who went to the Prophet, (ﷺ), and told him that he had left his small daughter to die in a certain dried up river bed(valley). The Prophet (ﷺ) went with the man to the river bed and called to her by name saying, “So-and-so, by the permission of Allah answer me.” The girl appeared and replied, “I am present Yaa Rasoolullah ! Obedient to you ! ” Then he informed her that her parents had converted to Islam and
asked if she would like to be returned to them. The little girl replied, “I have no need of them, I have found Allah is better for me than them.
وما محمد إلا رسول
In no means, this Hadith is not true, but false, because Muhammad (pbuh) himself never made these actions, and none of his Khulafa after him narrated such Hadith. Because it is never happened, and none was mentioned in the Holy Qur’an on that matter.
To bring these narrations which contradict logic in Islam as a belief, or in the Prophet (pbuh) as a Messanger from Allah…..
Other narrated Hadith by several Religious men such as Imam Mawardi (364 AH) ,A’laamin Nubuwwah , Page : 81]
Qadhi Ayadh , Ash-Shifa , 1/320; Abul Baqa al Hashmi (668AH) , Takhjeel min Harf al Taurat wal Ijeel , 2/774 and Shihabuddin Nuwayri (733AH) , Nihayat ul Arab , 18/329; and Abdur Rahman Saffuri (894AH) , Nuzhat ul Majalis , 1/64.
The Hadith reads in Arabic:
روى البيهقى فى الدلائل: أنه– صلى الله عليه وسلم– دعا رجلا إلى الإسلام، فقال: لا أؤمن بك حتى تحيى لى ابنتى، فقال– صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «أرنى قبرها» فأراه إياه، فقال– صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «يا فلانة» ، فقالت: لبيك وسعديك. فقال– صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «أتحبين أن ترجعى إلى الدنيا؟» فقالت: لا والله يا رسول الله، إنى وجدت الله خيرا لى من أبوى، ورأيت الآخرة خيرا لى من الدنيا.
In English translation the Hadith reads:
Imam Qastalani and Mullah Ali Qari says :
“ Imam Baihaqi narrated in Dalail un Nubuwwah that the Prophet (ﷺ) invited a Man to accept Islam .The man said , “ I will believe until you resurrect my (dead) daughter . Prophet (ﷺ) said “ Show me her grave ” . When he saw her grave he said “ O so and so ! ” . She replied “ I am present at your service Yaa Rasoolullah ” .Prophet (ﷺ) said , “ Do you like to return to this world ? ” .She replied “ No ! By Allah ,O Rasoolullah I have found Allah is better for me than my parents and hereafter is better than World ” .
Qastalani, Mawahib ul laduniya , 2/ 296,310
Mullah Ali Qari , Sharh Shifa , 1/651
Read the two hadiths again, you find the contradctions about Muhammad (pbuh) as a man, has no power over the only miracle, the Holy Qur’an verses.
O Muslims, if you remain following these myths without managing your minds, you are doomed to be controlled by ignorant people about your religion. Muhammad is not a God, because God is the only One who brings back the dead, and gave this power to Jesus as told in Qur;an and Bible, by God’s wish and will. But never gave this power to Muhammad (pbuh).
Wake up Muslims, true teachings of the Prophet need to be re-installed and cleaned up from Myths and superstitious narrations.
The Muslim literature is full of these superstitious narrations, If these narrations continue to exist and to be learned, then Islam will remain the source of ignorance rather than true knowledge which depend on the true teachings and narrations.
Allahumma Hal Ballaght? Allahumma fa sh-had.
