A common thing I have observed in every Islamic site is, Miracles of Prophet Muhammad. All the Islamic scholars believe that Prophet Muhammad was able to perform miracles. Some even attribute such things, which is impossible to accept. On of the Islamic site, Discovering Islam says, “when Prophet was born all the idols of Mecca were thrown down on the ground. Angels cast the throne of Iblis (Satan) into the sea and Satan was tormented for forty days.” It further says,
“The night our Prophet (s.a.a.w.s.) was born:
(a) The Palace of Qisra (King of Persia) trembled and its fourteen towers fell down.
If such extraordinary things had occurred, surely they would have become known to all the people of Mecca, and surely those people, who worshiped stone idols, would have bowed down to Mohammad instead. But the fact is that no one payed any attention to Prophet in his Meccan carrier. This story is an example of myth-making and history fabrication by Muslims. If at all such extraordinary thing had happened, how did the biographers or narrators, came to know that The Palace of Qisra fell down because of Muhammad’s birth? When we look into biography of Muhammad, nothing in great detail of his child-hood is written. This shows, that nothing such thing happened, but later Muslims attributed such Extra-Ordinary things to their Prophet, to make him miraculous, and next to GOD.
Ali Dasti, in his book 23 years, writes,
“The Prophet Mohammad’s birth took place in the normal way and with no immediate consequences, just like the births of millions of other infants; but the craze for miracles made people invent and believe fables about it, for instance The Palace of Qisra (King of Persia) trembled and its fourteen towers fell down and The flames of the fire-worshippers, the Majus (Zoroastrians) went out, though that fire had been burning for more than a thousand years, never extinguished.
He further adds, ” Reason, observation, and mathematics require effects to have causes. All the world’s phenomena, whether physical, social, or political, have causes. Sometimes these seem obvious; sunshine gives warmth and light, fire burns if not obstructed, water flows downward unless it can be pumped upward. Sometimes they are not obvious and have only been discovered through long effort, such as the causes of thunder and lightning or diseases and cures. Between the birth of a child at Mecca and the extinction of temple-fires in Iran, no relation of cause and effect is possible. If the Palace of Qisra trembled , it must have been due to subsidence.”
The site quotes a Hadith, which says that Prophet made water flow from his fingers.
“Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 779:
Narrated by Abdullah:
Once we were with Allah’s Messenger (Prophet Mohammad) on a journey, and we ran short of water. He said, “Bring the water remaining with you.” The people brought a container which had little water left. He placed his hand in it and said, “Come to the blessed water, and the Blessing is from Allah.” I saw the water flowing from among the fingers of Allah’s Messenger, and no doubt, we heard the meal glorifying Allah, when it was being eaten (by him).”
This Hadith shows, how desperate Believers were to make their Prophet a miraculous man. But this is anyhow impossible, although when Meccans demanded such miracle from him, he denied to do any such miracle and said that he is a mortal messenger. To some replied to wait till Day of Judgement to see signs of his Prophet-Hood. [Qur’an 10:20]
On one occasion, Quraysh asked Muhammad to do, what is mentioned in Qur’an in [34:9], to which he replied “that is for God to decide,” he said. “If He will, He will do it.” Isn’t it sufficient to prove that Muhammad was unable to do, what was revealed to him in Qur’an. Then how come he flow water from his fingers? There are ample evidence from Qur’an itself, which says that Muhammad was unable to perform any miracle. Let’s have a look at that too.
Qur’an 13:7 says, “And those who disbelieved say, “Why has a sign not been sent down to him from his Lord?” You are only a warner, and for every people is a guide.”
Quraysh wanted a clear proof from Muhammad for his message and his Prophet-hood, or they wanted to stop Muhammad’s preaching because he insulted their religion, forefathers and Gods. They continuously demanded evidences for Muhammad’s message, but he failed to reply, he used to read verses from Qur’an, which clearly denied that Prophet could do Miracles. The authority of Islam clearly denies that Muhammad could do Miracles, but the feeble minded Muslims till date attribute all sorts of Miracles to him.
