Lo! The marvelous, “Prophet Muhammad (on whom be peace) spoke as soon as he was born. He made prostration and people heard him begging his Lord: ‘O my people, O my people, Lord save my people!’ and then he said: ‘I bear witness there is no god but ALLAH and that I am the messenger of ALLAH'” (The Path of Mohammed [pbuh]: A Book on Islamic Morals & Ethics, World Wisdom, Inc., U.S.A., 2005, p.9). ‘And the horizon lit up from east to west’ – (The Rauzat-us-safa, Related by Shafai (r.a), the mother of A’bd-ur-rahman (r.a)).
“At the moment of his coming” also avows Washington Irving “into the world, a celestial light illumined the surrounding country and the new-born child, raising his eyes to heaven, exclaimed: ‘God is great! There is no God but God, and I am His Prophet.'”
“Heavens and earth, we are assured, were agitated at his advent. The lake of Sawa shrank back to its secret springs leaving its border dry; while the Tigris, bursting its bounds, overflowed into the neighbouring lands. The foundation of the palace of Khosru, of the king of Persia shook and several of its towers toppled down to the earth…”
“In the same eventful night† the sacred fire of Zoroaster which was guarded by the magi and which had burned without interruption for over a period of thousand years, was suddenly extinguished, and all the idols in the world fell down. The demons, or evil Jinns, which lurk in the stars and the signs of the zodiac and exert a malignant influence over the children of men were cast forth by the pure angels and hurled with their arch-leader Iblis or Lucifer into the depths of the sea” – (op. cit., 1849, p.38). And the continuous strings of blessed voices congratulated his Blessed Mother, Aminah (Peace be upon her), “Good fortune for the leader of the heavens and the earth, the Seal of the Prophets, the Chosen Muhammad (on whom be peace).” A next (voice) said, “God has honoured you among the people and made you “God has honoured you among the people and made you a cell for having the most exalted creature.” And a third (voice) said “There is none like you, O Aminah, from whom emanates the perfect friend, the resplendent light, and the supplicant for people on the day of judgment”. Aminah (Peace be unto her) also saw other noble winged figures carrying sliver cups and golden vases; birds with white wings covering all the house; people, trees, animals, beasts and birds rendering congratulations” (G. Chejne. Islam and the West, the Moriscos, State university of New York Press, NY, 1983, p.100).
† “When the planet Al-Moushtari passed”, also affirms Dinet, Etienne, “a line of light darted for the second time from Aminah’s (Peace be upon her) body in the direction of faraway Syria and it illuminated the palace of the town of Busra. At the same time, other prodigies astonished the world: the Lake Sowa suddenly dried up; a violent earthquake made the palace of Chosroes the Great tremble and shattered fourteen of its towers; the sacred Fire, kept alight for more than a thousand years, went out in spite of the exertions of its Persian worshippers and all the idols of the universe were found with their heads bowed down in great shame” – (Etienne, op. cit., 1918, p.5).
