Miraculous Happenings Before The Birth Of Beloved Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam)

Syedah Aamena Radi Allahu anha stated that as soon as the labour pains of childbirth started, an angel came and ask her to drink from a cup in his hand. This drink was whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. As soon as she drank this heavenly drink her pain disappeared and all fear left her.

Syedah Aamena Radi Allahu anha then saw the gates of Heaven open. The Angels came for the adoration of the new babe. Three Angels went towards the Kaa’ba. One Angel stayed over the Kaa’ba, one went to the East and other went towards the West. A light then Spread out lighting up the Universe. In this miraculous light, Syedah Aamena Radi Allahu anha stated , She could see distinctly the palaces of Palestine and Syria.

Then Four unkown ladies appeared miraculously before Aamena Radi Allahu anha to attend to the childbirth.

The First, who was very tall, said, she was Eve Radi Allahu anha, the mother of mankind.

The Second was Sarah Radi Allahu anha, the mother of the Prophet Issac Alaih salaam, and the grandmother of Jacob Alaih salaam, whose children were the Israelites, to pave the way for the forgiveness of the Jews, if they followed this child Muhammad Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam.

The Third was Princess Hagar of Egypt, the mother of Prophet Ishmael Alaih salaam. She came with Otto ( a sweet – smelling essence ) from Heaven, to express her love for this great grand-child from the descendants which fulfilled Allah’s ( Azawajal ) promise to her husband Prophet Abraham Alaih salaam, ” the world would be blessed through thy seed.”

The Fourth was Queen Asiya Radi Allahu anha, daughter of Mazahim. She was the wife of the Pharaoh of the time of Moses. She was that queen of Egypt who brought up Moses from a little child when he was found floating in the basket on the river Nile. She was the first person in the Pharaoh’s court who belived in Allah ( Azawajal ) upon seeing how small miraculous snake made by the staff of Moses ate up the bigger snakes of the Egyptian magicians. Whereupon the enraged Pharaoh tortured her severely, but in spite of this she refused to give up her faith.

In the hands of these four great nurses was Muhammad Salla allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam born with his foreskin already circumcised miraculously, with his navel cord already separated miracculously pure and clean without any kind of  blood or filth on it. Read the rest of this entry »

FORTUNE TELLING

People attach some importance to the time of birth, which act can at times be very much exaggerated. Astrologers tell us that if they knew the exact time of someone’s birth, they can set up his or her horoscope and that they can tell that person a great deal about his or her personality and future. They claim that by knowing the exact time of birth, they can calculate which star was rising and which was descending, and these movements indicate certain things for human beings. Besides, newspapers and magazines in most countries have a horoscope column which tell people, who are born between certain dates, what to expect in the period immediately after the publication of that issue of the paper or magazine. Although many read these for fun, some of them take them seriously.

From the Islamic point of view, we accept nothing of these claims. Indeed, the Prophet of Islam (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) warns us against consulting any fortune-teller, regardless of the method he or she uses to tell us our fortunes. Moreover, the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) describes fortune-tellers as liars, even when they happen to say the truth (i.e. foretell correctly). That means that if a fortune-teller tells us something and it turns out to be as he had said, he still is a liar because when he told it to us, he did not know it for certain. He was simply guessing. When a person tells us something, which is only guess work, he must be a liar. Indeed the prohibition to fortune-tellers, including astrologers, is very strict. To believe that someone may know the future is tantamount to disbelief in Almighty Allah, because it suggests that these people know something, which in fact is known only to Almighty Allah Himself.
