Some Miracles Experienced By the Salaf

The following narrations were collected by 'Abdullah 'Azzam in the second chapter of his book, 'Ayat ar-Rahman fi Jihad al-Afghan' (p. 82-94 of the second edition):

1 - Abu Bakr:

'A'ishah narrated: "When he was on his deathbed, my father said to me: "Verily, you have two brothers and two sisters." So, I became startled at this, as I only had two brothers and one sister. He referred to his then-pregnant wife, Bint Kharijah, saying: "I see that she is pregnant with a girl," and that turned out to be exactly the case."

[Reported by ash-Shatibi in 'al-Muwafaqat' (4/85), and Ibn Taymiyyah mentioned it in 'Majmu' al-Fatawa' (11/318)]

2 - Abu Qurfasah:

"The Romans imprisoned a son of the Companion, Abu Qurfasah. So, whenever it was time for prayer, Abu Qurfasah would climb the wall of 'Asqalan (in Syria) and call out: "O, son! It is time to pray!" And, his son would hear him all the way from the land of the Romans."

['Majma' az-Zawa'id' (9/396), and it is authentic]

3 - Ibn 'Abbas:

"Ibn 'Abbas died in at-Ta'if, and a bird, the likes of which had never been seen before, was seen at his funeral. The bird entered the hole in the ground where Ibn 'Abbas was to be buried. So, we looked and waited to see if it would come out, and it didn't. When his body was finally placed in the ground, we could hear the verse {"O, the one in rest and satisfaction! Come back to your Lord, Well-pleased and well-pleasing!"} [al-Fajr; 27-8] being recited from the edge of his grave, but we were unable to find out who had recited it."

[Reported by al-Hakim in 'al-Mustadrak' (3/543), and it is authentic]

4 - 'Umar bin al-Khattab:

'Abdullah bin Mas'ud narrated:

"A man from among the humans went out and was met by a man from among the jinn, who said: "Will you wrestle with me? If you throw me to the ground, I will teach you an verse which, if you recite it when you enter your house, no devil will enter." So, he wrestled with him and threw him to the ground. He said: "I see that you are very small and your forearms are like the front paws of a dog. Are all the jinn like this, or only you?" He said: "I am strong amongst them. Let us wrestle again." So, they wrestled again and the human threw him to the ground. So, the jinn said: "Recite Ayat al-Kursi, for no one recites it when he enters his house except that Satan leaves, passing wind like a donkey.""

It was said to Ibn Mas'ud: "Was that man 'Umar?"

He said: "Who else could it have been, other than 'Umar?"

['Majma' az-Zawa'id'; 9/71, and it is authentic]

5 - Zayd bin Kharijah al-Ansari:

Sa'id bin al-Musayyib narrated:

"Zayd bin Kharijah al-Ansari died during the reign of 'Uthman bin 'Affan. When he was wrapped in a shroud and being prepared for burial, a gurgling sound was heard coming from his chest, then Zayd got up and said: "Ahmad! Ahmad! He is in the first Book! Abu Bakr has spoken the truth! 'Umar has spoken the truth! 'Uthman has spoken the truth!""

['al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah'; 6/293; and it is authentic]

Sa'id then said:

"Then, another man died shortly thereafter. When he was wrapped in a shroud and being prepared for burial, a gurgling sound was heard coming from his chest. The man then got up and said: "Zayd bin Kharijah has spoken the truth!""

['Majma' az-Zawa'id'; 8/230, and it is authentic]

6 - Hamzah bin 'Abd al-Mutallib:

"When the bodies of the martyrs of Uhud were being relocated forty years after their burial (during the reign of Mu'awiyah), the foot of Hamzah bin 'Abd al-Mutallib was scratched in the process of being moved, and it started gushing blood."

['al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah'; 4/43, and it is authentic]

7 - al-'Ala' al-Hadrami:

Abu Hurayrah narrated:

"al-'Ala' al-Hadrami supplicated for rain, and it then began to rain in the middle of the desert. In another incident, he supplicated, and we were able to walk over the water in the Arabian Peninsula (near Bahrain), without even the bottom of our feet getting wet. When he died, we buried him, and after a while, we opened up his grave to find that he was not there."

['Majma' az-Zawa'id'; 9/276]

8 - Salman and Sa'd:

"When Sa'd and the Muslim army arrived at the Tigris River during the battle of Qadisiyyah, Salman stopped and said: "A river from the rivers of Allah. Will it not carry the soldiers of Allah?" So, he took Sa'd by the hand and stepped onto the water, leading all 30,000 soldiers across the Tigris River on foot. The Persians saw this and escaped, saying: "The demons have arrived! The demons have arrived!""

[Reported by at-Tabari in 'at-Tarikh' (3/123), and Ibn Kathir in 'al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah' (7/64)]

9 - Khalid bin al-Walid:

Khayshamah narrated:

"Khalid bin al-Walid came to a man carrying a jug of alcohol, so, he said: "O Allah! Turn it into honey!" So, it turned into honey."

[Reported by Ibn Hajar in 'al-Isabah fi Ma'rifat as-Sahabah'; p. 414]

10 - Ahmad bin Fudayl narrated:

"Abu Mu'awiyah al-Aswad went out for Jihad and took part in a battle in which the Muslims had surrounded a fortress on top of which a 'ilj (Roman disbeliever) was standing who would not throw an arrow or a stone except that he would strike his target. The Muslims complained about this to Abu Mu'awiyah, so he recited: {"And it was not you who threw when you threw. Rather, it was Allah who threw..."} [al-Anfal; 17] Then, he said: "Shield me from him."

Then he got up and said: "Where do you wish for me to strike him?"

They said: "In his private parts."

Abu Mu'awiyah said: "O Allah! You have heard what they have asked of me, so grant me what they ask of me!" Then he said 'bismillah' and shot the arrow. The arrow went straight for the wall of the fortress, seemingly about to miss the disbeliever. Then, right when it was about to hit the wall, it changed course and shot straight up, striking the 'ilj in his private parts.

Abu Mu'awiyah then said: "Your problem with him is over.""

['Siyar A'lam an-Nubala''; 8/43]
