Hadith on Miracles: The Miracle of Water Provision by the Prophet

📖Sahih Muslim 2279 a
Anas reported that Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) called for water and he was given a vessel and the people began to perform ablution in that and I counted (the persons) and they were between sixty and eighty and I saw water which was spouting from his fingers.

  • This hadith in Sahih Muslim 2279 a reports an incident where the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) called for water and was given a vessel, which the people used to perform ablution (wudu). Anas, the narrator of the hadith, counted the number of people and found them to be between sixty and eighty. The miraculous aspect of this hadith lies in the fact that the Prophet (ﷺ) was able to provide water for so many people with only a small vessel, as the amount of water needed for ablution is quite significant. Additionally, Anas reports that he saw water spouting from the fingers of the Prophet (ﷺ), indicating that the source of the water was not limited to the vessel. This is just one of many miracles attributed to the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) during his lifetime. It serves as a testament to his prophethood and the power bestowed upon him by Allah. It also serves as a reminder of the importance of water in Islamic ritual purification, and the blessings that Allah bestows upon his believers.
