Natures like the Earth, Water, Trees, etc are neutral. These are like a judge in court to justify the truth of Muhammad. They obeyed our last prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) so it is 100% proof that He is the Messenger of God who created this universe.
Walkthrough and Return
Narrated by Imam Ibn Maja, Darimi, Imam Bayhaqi, Hazrat Anas Ibn Malik from Hazrat Ali; Bazzaz and Imam Bayhaqi narrated it from ‘Umar:
When the Noble Messenger (pbuh) was saddened at the denial of the unbelievers, he said:
“O my Sustainer! Give me a sign that I shall no longer see anyone who contradicts me!”
According to Anas, Gabriel was also there present before the occurrence of this miracle. There was a tree at the side of the valley. Upon the instruction of Gabriel, the messenger of Allah called that tree. The tree came near him. He then told the tree to “go back”; it returned and settled itself in its place.
Testify and Witness
“On one expedition, a Bedouin approached the Noble Messenger (pbuh). God’s Messenger asked him:
‘Where are you going?’ The Bedouin replied:
‘To my family.’ God’s Messenger asked him again:
‘Do you not want something better than that?’ The Bedouin asked:
‘What is that?’The Messenger said:
‘That you bear witness that there is no god but Allah, He is One, He has no partner, and that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger.’ The Bedouin asked:
‘What is witness to this testimony?’God’s Messenger said:
‘The tree beside the valley shall bear witness.’
Ibn ‘Umar said: “Shaking, the tree cleft the earth and came to God’s Messenger. He asked the tree three times to testify; each time it testified to his truthfulness. When he ordered, it went back and settled in its place.”
Kiss Hand and Feet
According to the authentic narration of Ibn Sahib al-Aslami, Burayda reports: “When we were with the Noble Messenger (pbuh) on an expedition, a Bedouin came and asked for a sign, that is, a miracle. The Messenger said: ‘Tell that tree that God’s Messenger summons it!’ Then he pointed to a tree; it swayed to right and left, brought itself out of the ground with its roots, and came to the presence of the Messenger, saying: ‘Peace be upon you, O Messenger of God!’ The Bedouin said: ‘Now let it go to its place again!’ He commanded, and it went.
Then the Bedouin said: ‘Allow me to prostrate before you.’ The Messenger replied: ‘No one is permitted to do that.’ The Bedouin said: ‘Then I will kiss your hands and feet,’ and he permitted him.”
Two Trees Join Together
Foremost the Sahih of Muslim, and the authentic books of Hadith relate that Jabir said:
“We were together with God’s Noble Messenger (pbuh) on an expedition when he searched for a place to answer the call of nature. There was no secluded place. So, he went towards two trees, caught hold of the branches of one of them, and pulled. Obeying him, the tree went together with him to the second tree. It was like an obedient camel being led by its reins. Having, in this way, brought the two trees together, he said: ‘Join together over me, with God’s permission!’ The two trees joined together and formed a screen. After relieving himself behind them, he ordered them to go back, and they returned to their places.”
According to another narration, Jabir said: “God’s Messenger commanded me: ‘Tell those trees to join together for the relief of God’s Messenger!’ I told them to do so, and they joined together. Then, while I was waiting, God’s Messenger (pbuh) emerged, and indicated to left and right with his head. The two trees returned to their places.”
Trees Join and Rocks Form a Wall
Usama b. Zayd, one the brave commanders and servants of the Noble Messenger (pbuh), reports in an authentic narration:
“We were together with God’s Messenger on an expedition. There was no secluded, private place in which to answer the call of nature. He asked: ‘Can you see any trees or rocks?’ I replied: ‘Yes, I can.’ He ordered: ‘Speak to them and tell them to join together for the relief of God’s Messenger; also tell the rocks to gather together as a wall.’ I went and said as he commanded. I swear that the trees joined together and the rocks formed a wall. God’s Messenger after relieving himself, again commanded: ‘Tell them to separate!’ I swear by the Glorious One in the grasp of Whose power I am that the trees and rocks separated, and returned to their places.”
These two incidents which were reported by Jabir b. Usama were also reported by Ya‘la b. Murra, Ghaylan b. Salama al-Thaqafi, and Ibn Mas‘ud, referring to the Battle of Hunayn.
The Tree that Salutes
Ya‘la b. Murra relates in an authentic narration:
“During an expedition, a tree -called either talha or samura- came, passed around God’s Noble Messenger (pbuh) as if circumambulating, and went back to its place. God’s Messenger said: ‘The tree requested of God that it should salute me.’
The Tree Miracle that Let the Jinn Find the True Way
Scholars of Hadith relate from Ibn Mas‘ud with an authentic narration:
“When the jinn of Nusaybin came to the Noble Messenger (pbuh) in the place called Batn an-Nakhl in order to find guidance, a tree informed him of their coming.” Also, Imam Mujahid relates from Ibn Mas‘ud in the Hadith: “The jinn asked for a proof of his prophethood, so the Noble Prophet commanded the tree, and it left its place, came to him, then returned to its place.”
That single miracle was sufficient for the race of jinn. So if a human being does not come to believe having heard of a thousand miracles like this one, is he not more of a devil than those described by the jinn as, “Some foolish ones among us”?
The Branch of a Tree that Comes Upon Calling
Foremost Tirmidhi, along with many scholars of hadith, reports from Hazrat Ibn ‘Abbas:
Ibn Abbas said:
“God’s Noble Messenger (pbuh) asked a Bedouin:
‘Will you testify that I am the Messenger of God if a branch of that tree comes to me when I call to it?’ The Bedouin replied:
The Messenger called to the branch. It broke off and jumped over near him, then jumped back when he told it to do so.”
The Crying Date-Palm Pole
Corroborating the miracles concerning trees and reported in the form of ‘consensus,’ is the miracle of the moaning of the pole.
“When delivering the sermon in the mosque, God’s Noble Messenger (pbuh) used to lean against a pole consisting of a date-palm. But when the pulpit was made, he began to give the sermon from there. Whereupon the pole moaned and wailed like a camel; the whole congregation heard it. Only when the Prophet came down from the pulpit to it, and placed his hand on it, speaking to it and consoling it, did the pole stop moaning.”
We proved above that trees obeyed our last prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by the permission of Almighty Allah who is creator of this universe.
By the mercy of Almighty Allah, I also can prove miracle like mentioned above if 5 billion Atheists and Non-Muslims will agree to convert to Islam.
I challenge forever that any follower of any other religions cannot prove that trees obey him/her.
