Miracles of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) – By Sheikh Ali Al Haddad
Miracles of the Prophet Muhammad صلى ا عليه و سلم
By Sheikh Ali Al Haddad
Translated by Abdullah Boyd
((The first khutbah))
As for what follows:
From the signs of the Prophet صلى ا عليه و سلم is that Allah aided him with miracles that were beyond human capability in order for this to be a proof of his truthfulness, and to increase the faith of those who already believed in him, and to establish an argument against those who opposed and disbelieved in him.
And Allah aided our Prophet صلى ا عليه و سلم with many miracles, and there is no doubt that the greatest of the miracles is the Noble Quran, which shall remain until Allah decrees to raise it up shortly before the Day of Judgment. And the effects of knowing the miracles of the Prophet صلى ا عليه و سلم is that will increase the believers’ faith concerning him; therefore I wanted to remind myself and you about some of these
Splitting of the moon:
And from the miracles of the Prophet صلى ا عليه و سلم is the splitting of the moon; and this occurred when the pagans requested that the Prophet صلى ا عليه و سلم show them a sign, so he split the moon into two segments, a segment of the right of Hiraa mountain and a segment on the left of it. But still they did not believe, rather they said, ‘Muhammad has bewitched us’. And Allah spoke the truth about them when He said, ‘ الظّالِمِينَ بِآيَاتِ اِّ يَجْحَدُونَ فَإِنّهُمْ ل يُكَذّبُونَكَ وَلَكِنّ “It is not you that they deny, but it is the Verses (the Qur’an) of Allah that the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers) deny.” (Chapter 6 verse 33) Ibn Kathir mentioned that there was built in India a temple, and on the night the moon was split it was written about on this temple, therefore this is proof that the splitting of the moon was not only sighted by the people of Mecca. Rather, it was sighted by those whom Allah had decreed for it to be sighted by.
