MIRACLES of MUHAMMAD ‘alaihis-salâm

Muhammad ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’ was strolling through a field, when he heard a voice saying, “Yâ Rasûlallah (O the Messenger of Allah)!” three times. He turned to the direction whence the voice came, to see a deer tied up. By its side slept a man. He asked the deer what she wanted. “This hunter has ensnared me,” whimpered the deer. “I have two sucklings on the hill over there. Please do let me go! I’ll go, milk them, and come back.” The Prophet ‘alaihis-salâm’ asked, “Will you keep your promise and come back?” The deer pledged, “I promise in the name of Allâhu ta’âlâ that I shall come back. If I don’t, then may the torment of Allâhu ta’âlâ be on me!” The Messenger of Allah set the deer free. She ran away, coming back sometime later. The Messenger of Allah tied her again. When the man woke up and asked, “O the Messenger of Allah! Is there something you want to order me to do?” the Prophet stated, “Emancipate this deer!” The deer was so happy that she stomped her two feet on the ground, exclaimed “Ash-hadu an lâ ilâha il-l-Allah wa annaka Rasûlullah (I believe in and testify to that Allah exists and He is One and you are His Messenger),” and capered away.”
