اللهمّ صلِّ على سيّدنا محمّد وعلى آله وصحبه وسلِم

Verily Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) is Allah’s beloved. Allah has given countless blessings to his beloved. With Allah’s special mercy anything and everything related to Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) is a blessing. Believers know this and they take every opportunity to grasp it.

We have seen in recent past some events related to sacred hair of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) which received public attention. One of such events was handing over of the sacred hair as stated in my previous post Sacred Hair of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) in India. Consequently believers in south Indian state, Kerala became very happy. Their leader announced a plan to construct a grand mosque worth of 400 million Indian Rupees to have an honorable home for the Sacred Relic. The public acceptance got for this mission suggested that believers are ready to spend in respect of their beloved Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) even it is 4000 million.

Proposed Grand Masjid to host the Sacred Hair

But sorry to say that there are some critics airing skeptical comments showing their uneasiness on the ‘Sacred Hair’. Some question the authenticity of it and some others vary on the length of it. One would feel sorry for them as their allegations are baseless without proofs or historical evidences.

A brief study I have made on the subject revealed many miraculous facts on Hair of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم).

  • It won’t decay by passage of time.
  • It grows as time passes.
  • It splits into multiples.
  • It moves by itself once kept in Majlis al Dikr (Gathering to remember Allah).
  • It often glows in dark.

Respected scholar Yousuf  Ismail  Yousuf al Nabhani (يوسف اسماعيل النبهاني) from Palestine (1849–1932) mentions in his book ‘Jawahir al Bihar’ (جواهر البحار في فضائل النبي المختار) narration from Great Scholar Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulsi ( عبد الغني النابلسي رضي الله عنه). Nabulsi (1641 – 1731), a Damascus bound scholar during his visit to Madinah Shareef met a scholar from India named Gulam Muhammad.

This Indian scholar used to read them ‘’Futoohat al Malakiyyah’ (فتوحات الملكية) authored by Great Shaikh Muhyidhin al Arabi (رضي الله عنه). He explained on availability of many Sacred Hairs in India and its supernatural behaviors. Those hairs are exhibited during 9th of month Rabiul Awwal every year for public to have blessings. The Indian scholar explained that some hairs will move by self and he had witnessed it. Some hairs grow and some of them offshoot new hairs.

Some historians reported that a rightful Indian king Nooruddin al Shaheed had a collection of Sacred Hairs in his stock. He made a ‘wasiyah’ (will letter) to keep the Hairs in his eyes after his death and was done so.

Another incident about ‘Sacred Hair’ is narrated by great Indian saint Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Dehlavi (رضي الله عنه) (1703 – 1762) in his book ‘Hirz al Thameen fi Mubasharaatin Nabiyil Ameen’. His father told that once he was ill and he saw Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) in dream. He explained about his illness to Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) and He (صلى الله عليه و سلم) found a cure for it and from His (صلى الله عليه و سلم) blessed beard left two hairs. He instantly recovered and when woke up, both the blessed hairs were in his hand. Shah Waliullah writes, “My father gave me one from the blessed hairs.”

Recently enough, Shaikh Ahmad Muhammad Al Khazraji (طول الله عمره), a descendant from Khazraj tribe of Madinah in Abu Dhabi have a healthy collection of many ‘Sacred Hairs’ having fail proof authentic certificate. I have posted an article before on it Sacred Hair of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم), a precious collection!

He exhibits the Blessed Relic to public on 23rd night of Ramadan. One respected brother has posted the news here شعرات من رأس الحبيب عليه السلام. He has mentioned the miraculous behavior of the Hair growing by itself.

One young Indian scholar now doing his doctorate in Al Azhar University has recounted explanations given by Shaikh Ahmad Muhammad Al Khazraji during his recent visit to him. The Shaikh tells that some hairs in his collection grow 1.7 to 2.5% in a year.

Interestingly enough he has noticed new hairs being added up in his collection. Curious to know, he has shown the new hairs to fire to check whether it burns. No, it has surpassed the test ensuring that it was derived from the original hair of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم)! He also noticed some hairs moving by itself upon kept in Majlis al Dikr (مجلس الذكر) and some glowing in dark.

Fitting to their unparalleled privilege, government of U.A.E has recently published stamps as a respect to his father Muhammad Al Khazraji (رحمة الله عليه). His father had served as Minister of Endowments and Islamic Affairs in U.A.E.

It is wonderful, isn’t it? Those who know the meaning of Prophetic Miracle won’t need more to believe it. But others who might try to measure with physical scales will find it hard to digest. According to Shaikh Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulsi, Allah has granted special life pattern to parts belonging to Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم).

There were many miracles shown by Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) to his people only to be denied by many. One of them is  the moon splitting incident as Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) had shown full moon split and separated to two parts of the horizon. Many people in Makkah who watched it by own eyes didn’t believe it. Surprisingly a king from India saw it and set his sail to Makkah to embrace Islam. (Check Tajudhin Al Hindi (Raliya Allahu Anhu for details).

Similarly another great miracle of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) Al Isra’ wal Mieraj (الاسراء و المعراج) was denied and scrutinized by Makkah infidels. But, see the Great Sahabi Abu Bakr al Siddiq (رضي الله عنه) accepted it without a rethink. It is ‘Eeman’, the real faith which many fail to posses.

Now the onus is on us. Believing it or not is one’s own choice. But don’t bully it by posting and circulating unnecessary emails which will tarnish image of our Ummah in public. If one can’t digest it, better for him to keep quite.

Special thanks to the brother who has sent me the photos of the event at Ahmad Muhammad Al Khazraji ‘s home with many close up images revealing the ‘Sacred Hairs’.

    Although I agree with many of the miracles of the Prophetic hair, however this is not true:
    “It is still alive even after 1400 plus years as normal human hair can’t sustain over 80 years. ”

    Actually hairs can go on for 1000s of years and are found many times are found preserved bro. They have a very slow rate of decay and can last for a very long time even in normal conditions.

      Wa AlaikumuSalam Brother

      What I quoted is not my own. It is comments given by custodian of sacred relics in Imam Husain Masjid, Cairo where some sacred hairs are preserved.

      I haven’t gone much on its scientific side and would correct if proven otherwise.

    This is a wonderful job, may ‘Allah:’ reward you in both the worlds…Can you please translate the full post to Malayalam, coz’ some stupid wahabees are spreading false news about this holy hair….

  • 11. baqavi  |  March 13, 2011 at 7:46 am

    Thanks a lot for this great posting, Jazak Allah Khairan.

    This post answers to many questions. But those who see the holy prophet as an ‘ordinary man’ would ‘pass over’ all the evidences of His distinction. Many of these people know the truth but can’t accept it as in case of Abu Jahal-(LA). Some of them are terribly pathetic as who ask “How can you take photos if they don’t have shadow?” This Blessed hair has crossed seven havens and reached a place where angel would burn if entered and returned back to us. Do they have any question on that?…

    To those who question the honesty of Shaikh Khazraji we say that we trust him much more than we trust you and he is trusted and accepted by thousands of people all over the world as you people fail to convince a handful of your own folk.

    The questions against the blessed hairs with Shaikh Khazraji themselves prove otherwise. If he was a fraud, suppose, (May Allah and prolong his life and protect him always) he could have cut the hairs according to the hadith that describes the length of the blessed hair in his lifetime or he could have shown only a few pieces of the hair to make these people accept it or to get them muted at least. The very fact that he did not do it proves his honesty and integrity.

    The Beloved Prophet extended this great gift to us out of His unparalleled mercy toward his lovers. So it is obvious that His enemies are deprived of this great blessing of His Holy Hair, and are driven away from it by Almighty Allah.

    May Almighty Allah Bless us all and join us with our Beloved Messenger (PBUH) in His Heaven-Ameen

    By the way are the hairs that long because they’ve grown as in the picture? But what about the hairs in Masjid al Hussain that aren’t as long?

    • 26. Ne3matullah  |  April 24, 2011 at 7:25 pm

      As mentioned in the book of Yousuf Al Nabhani (رحمة الله عليه) some hairs are noted as growing (photocopy of this page is included in this post). Others might be growing in slow phase or won’t grow at all. It is not at all under our control as Allah is the one who gives special growth pattern to those Hairs of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم)

      I don’t think whether any of these controversy makers have ever seen any Sacred Hair. Let alone the one in Masjid Imam Husain in Cairo. Nor I feel they have the intention to see it at all. Who has measured actual length of the hair kept in Masjid Imam Husain?

      It is noteworthy that another Sacred Hair in custody of another Shaikh in Abu Dhabi is also long. One of my friend who saw it had explained me about it. Regarding authenticity of the ‘Isnad’ one has to believe it otherwise proven wrong. It is evident that the hair kept in Al Khazraji’s collection of sacred relics is the most authentic as he maintains its full chain of custodians reaching to the era of Sahaba (رضي الله عنهم).

      But, the outcry on this subject from non Ahlu Suunah wal Jamaa’h sects are because of one main reason as I understood. The core of the fact is that the Hair was handed over to a great Indian scholar of recent times who is very strong in his stand for Ahlu Suunah wal Jamaa’h. I have seen him as a sincere character in his efforts in propagating the religion, helping needy and especially upbringing thousands of orphans.

      But many whose ideology doesn’t match with Ahlu Suunah wal Jamaa’h are against him as was the case for many past great scholars like Imam Ahmad bin Hambal (رضي الله عنه). The conspiracy makers wait for any chance to disgrace him to distract his public acceptance. Many of such controversies in past have ended up on the other way and he emerged victorious and his fame increased.

      Now this immeasurable accolade of getting custody of Sacred Hair of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) made him ever respectful. Meanwhile it has stirred the jealous opponents. Their envy is clear from the fuss and fury they publish filled with assumptions rather than realities and logic rather than evidences.

      In this regard it is good for a believer to take the stance of Slaves of Rahman (عباد الرحمن) mentioned in Surah al Furqan verse 63 “And the servants of (Allah) Most Gracious are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say, Peace!;”

        As-Salaatu was-Salaamu ‘alayKa ya Sayyidi ya Rasul Allah
        wa ‘alaa AaliKa wa As-haabiKa ya Sayyidi ya Habib Allah

        As-Salaamu ‘alaykum wa RahmatUllahi wa BarakaatuHu,

        I would like to ask the date when Shaykh Ahmad al-Khazraji (may Allah preserve him) allows Ziyarah of the Blessed Hair of Rasul Allah SallAllahu ‘alayHi wa AaliHi waSallam, for the pubic.

        Is it 23 Ramadan, 27 Ramadan or 12 Rabi al-Awwal? Because we’ve read different dates in different articles. Since we have to come to Abu Dhabi especially for the Ziyarah we would like to know the exact date.

        Jazak Allah Khayran Katheera.

        Mawlaya Salli wa Sallim da’iman ‘abadan ‘alaa Habeebika Khayr il-Khalqi Kullihimi.

  • 28. suyuti  |  April 24, 2011 at 9:30 pm


    JazakAllah khair sidi, that explanation was great.
    I think that there’s other points that are possible like maybe if the person is pious and possesses the Hair, then its grows more. Or that if there’s a lot of Hairs together, they grow faster.
    Allahu A’lem
    I suspect that a lot of “practicing” Muslims these days, if they were alive at the time of the Prophet going on the Mi’raj, they would have rejected his report. Such a pity that they have inconsistent and irrational positions.

    Is it possible that you can write a post if you know of other incidents or this incident, giving more detail?
    I know a number of incidents have occured and strive to show the falsity of materialism, atheism and other batil religions.
