MIRACLES OF NATURE
"We shall show them our signs on the horizon and within themselves until it will manifest unto them that it is the truth." (Chapter 41: Verse 53)
Recently, the appearance of the Arabic
words "Allah" and "Muhammad" in a tomato, caused quite
a stir in the community. Now, in the state of Assam, north-east India, a Muslim
female has discovered, while cutting a potato, the names of "Allahu"
and "Muhammad" inside the potato. More than ten thousand people
have already visited her home to see this "miracle."
This is certainly not a new phenomenon. Similar inscriptions have appeared on seeds, rocks, human beings, honey combs, trees and other objects of nature. Some times back we witnessed the appearance of similar Arabic words on pieces of meat that were cut by a Muslim family in Vereeniging and also seen on a tropical fish that was found in a pet shop in Rustenburg.
These inscriptions, now found in the potato, are an affirmation of the Oneness of Almighty Allah and of the finality of Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). These signs are further confirmed in the Holy Quran, in which the Almighty Allah says: "We shall show them our signs on the horizon and within themselves until it will manifest unto them that it is the truth." (Chapter 41: Verse 53) These signs should make Muslims more conscious of their obligations that they have towards their Creator. The natural formation of the Kalima by the trees in a forest in Bonn in Germany is also living proof of the existence of Almighty Allah.
Allah alone is the Creator and everything is in His control. No matter how much human beings progress, be it through their own learning or through scientific research, we will always be dependent upon the power of the Almighty Allah. It is for this reason that even in this technologically advanced era, in spite of all the progress and advancements, disasters are still occurring. These are warnings to the human race that they are still dependent on the Creator and are subservient to Him. Such an incident should be an example and a means of gaining understanding for Atheists, those who do not believe in the existence of Almighty Allah.
