A living tree which had sheltered Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم)
A recent research in Jordan leads way to yet another proof on legitimacy of Islam and its messenger Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم). For actual believers simple statements from Allah are adequate to believe the truth. But those who restrain from real faith might ask for solid evidences. Allah will show ample evidences on His realities time and again as a reminder to those who still disbelieve.
There are some people who are reluctant to believe the reality even after knowing the truth owing to their ego or pride. Another category of people will embrace correct faith by mercy of Allah upon viewing the evidences. Those who believe truth from Allah and set their lifestyle according to commands of Allah will be protected from pitiless hell fire and rewarded Paradise filled with immeasurable blessings.
So, humbly we introduce facts to those who might understand the truth and may by mercy of Allah turn to correct faith and religion.
Allah has stated in Qura’n
البقرة – 146
“The people of the book know this as they know their own sons, but some of them conceal the truth which they themselves know.”
Hundreds of evidences were given in ancient Vedas, Tourah and Bible (old Books) on appearance of the Last Messenger, Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم). Many verses can be seen stating name, native and characteristics of the Last Messenger even in recent day copies of old Books though those books had gone through many human interventions and adjustments.
Thus people who know the Last Messenger from Allah from old Books were in anticipation of Him. Here comes story of Bahira, a Christian monk lived in Busra, south of Syria and his zeal to meet the Last Messenger. He happened to watch a caravan of Arabian merchants from Makkah passing by and a young boy is being shaded by clouds wherever he goes. He at once understood significance of the boy and invited the caravan for a banquet.
All members of the caravan attended the feast except the boy whom he was anxiously waiting. So he looked out and found the boy resting under a tree. As per his knowledge of Bible only a Prophet will rest under that tree. So he urged the caravan members to bring that boy to the banquet. He quizzed the boy and concluded that He is the Last Messenger explained in Bible. Bahira convinced the boy’s uncle Abu Talib to return to Makkah with the boy as Jews are in search for Him to harm.
This incident was when our beloved Rasoolullahi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) was 12 years old (1459 hijri years ago). The tree which shaded Rasoolullahi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) is miraculously preserved by Allah for all this long period. It is the lonely tree available for around hundred square kilometers in that inhospitable desert north of Jordan.
