Miracles of the Holy Prophet (S) by Ibn Kathir [Selections from al-Bidayah wa-al-Nihayah]

R 199


The Prophet's Miracles' is a selection from Ibn Kathir's al-Bidayah wa-al-Nihaya. During his preaching, the Prophet was often called upon to demonstrate miracles. And, he did oblige those who demanded - like the splitting of the moon. However, certain miracles were part of his mission like the Quran. Allah revealed it to him and it is a lasting miracle till the end of the world. There are so many things that he said will happen as also the signs of the Last Day. We see many of them coming true as others will take place. Miracles of other Prophets have also been narrated. At the time, Ibn Kathir has shifted the fabricated accounts which have found themselves in books of Sirah.
