Miracles do happen, don’t they?
It happened to Musa AS when he stood facing the sea ahead with an army behind to get him. He had nowhere to go when the sea parted and made way for him.
It happened to Yunus AS when he prayed in the belly of the fish; he came out alive and safe.
It happened for Prophet SAW when the moon split open.
It happened to Ibrahim AS when he witnessed Allah SWT give life back to the dead birds.
These are the bigger examples. There are innumerable instances from the lives of innumerable people of the past that one could go on. But why go on, if we don’t take it to ourselves. Isn’t it a miracle in itself for Musa AS to be protected and brought up safely by his own enemy?
These are Prophets I am talking about. But they were humans as much as we are.
I have come to realize that Allah SWT narrates these examples
to us not just for our entertainment, but for us to comprehend the deeper meaning behind it.
How much do I have faith in Allah SWT in asking Him for a miracle in my life? When Ibrahim AS knew he was going to be thrown into the fire, wasn’t it very idealistic of him to say ‘Hasbun Allahu wa ni’mal wakeel’? Yet, for that simple reason, Allah SWT ordered the laws of the universe to change and made the fire to be ‘safety for him’. [Allah said, “O fire, be coolness and safety upon Ibrahim.” Quran, 21:69]
Some miracles can be logical and some just wont. The rainbow is a miracle. And one can scientifically explain it. On the other hand, the splitting of the moon is a miracle, but how much can one explain it…
Having faith in Allah SWT empowers one and strengthens us to not bend down or lose hope. How much has it remained this way in our lives?
