The birth of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is the greatest honour manifested by Allah Almighty for the entire humanity. In the Holy Qur’an, Allah mentioned,
“And We have sent you (O Muhammad) not but as a mercy for the worlds (all of creation)” (Qur’an 21:107)
There were many miracles that preceded the Prophet’s birth, as well as other miracles and incidents that took place after his blessed birth. The Hadith or Prophetic Traditions are replete with narrations of hundreds of such miracles. It was surely a sign of the grand and lofty station of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
Some of these Prophetic Traditions include:
Imam Muslim reported on the authority of Jabir that the Prophet said: "I recognize a stone in Makkah, which used to salute me before my advent as a Prophet and I recognize that stone even now."
The Prophet used to stand by a tree or a date-palm on Friday. Then an Ansari woman or man said. “O Allah's Messenger! Shall we make a pulpit for you?” He replied, “If you wish.” So they made a pulpit for him and when it was Friday, he proceeded towards the pulpit (for delivering the sermon). The date-palm cried like a child! The Prophet descended (the pulpit) and embraced it while it continued moaning like a child being quietened. The Prophet said, “It was crying for (missing) what it used to hear of religious knowledge given near to it.”
Shaykh Hisham Kabbani will share some of the miracles of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, experienced at his birth, before his Prophethood, and during his Prophetic life.
Shaykh Hisham Kabbani will also highlight the need to increase our love for Prophet Muhammad through an understanding of the Sirah or Prophetic Biography, and he will also share specific habits for Muslims to develop and inculcate in enhancing their love for Prophet Muhammad.
