Among the miracles of the Prophet ( ‘alaihi wasallam) one can count numerous invocations answered. We focus on the prayers of the Messenger of Allah (alaihi wasallam) in favor of his companions (may Allah be pleased with him), their families and their animals insha’Allah.
Based on the book “Miracles of the Prophet” written by the eminent scholar Ibn Kathir (may Allah have mercy on him), we discuss the invocation for the mother of Abu Hurairah, Ibn Sa’id Abi Waqqas and Jabir and his camel.
The invocation for the mother of Abu Hurayrah
The Messenger of Allah (alaihi wasallam) invoked Allah, initially, that He guide the mother of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him). Then, in a second time, he called on to Abu Hurayrah and her mother enjoy the love of believers.
Indeed, it is established in Sahih Muslim that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) asked Allah’s Messenger ( ‘alayhi wasallam) to invoke Allah to guide his mother to the Islam. Which he did. So Abu Hurairah went to visit his mother and found her to wash behind the door. When she finished, she said, “I testify that there is god worthy of being worshiped except Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.” Abu Hurairah wept for joy, then returned to inform the Prophet ( ‘alaihi wasallam) and asked him to invoke Allah to make love, he and his mother, the faithful servants. What did the Prophet ( ‘alaihi wasallam) and that wish was granted. Abu Hurayrah said: “There is no believer or a believer who does not love us.” Ibn Kathir (may Allah have mercy on him) says rightly: “Abu Huraira is right. May Allah be pleased with him! “.
The invocation for Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas
Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas (qi’Allah anhu) is a companion with a feature, which is not insignificant. Indeed, all its invocations were answered sobhanAllah. He enjoyed this benefit because the Prophet ( ‘alaihi wasallam) had asked Allah.
It is in this sense what did Tabarani reported using a chain that goes back to ash-Sha’bi, he asked Sa’d (may Allah be pleased with him): “Since when have you found when you address an invocation to Allah, it is answered? – Since the battle of Badr, he said. That day, the Prophet ( ‘alaihi wasallam) prayed for me, “Lord, grant the wishes of Sa’d.” ”
The invocation for Jabir and his camel
The Messenger of Allah (alaihi wasallam) invoked Allah on an expedition because the camel Jabir was no longer able to keep pace. Since his invocation, the camel was extremely fast masha’Allah.
Indeed, it is established that in both Sahih [in an expedition], camel Jabir ibn ‘Abd Allah was exhausted. “When I wanted to leave the camel says Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him), the Messenger of Allah (alaihi wasallam) joined me. He excited the camel and invoked Allah for me. My camel stopped ahead of other camels to the point that I was pulling his bridle to me without being able to slow it down. – How is your camel now? Asked the Prophet ( ‘alaihi wasallam). – He was hit by your blessing, Allah’s Messenger! “. The prayers of the Messenger of Allah (alaihi wasallam) were both his friends that their pets.
May Allah accept our repentance and answer our supplications. Let us hope that he grant us mercy and forgiveness.
