Miracle of Imam Hasan (May Allah be well pleased with him)
Hadhrat ‘Abdur Rahman Jami (May Allah shower His mercy on him) has related this Tradition in Shawahid Un Nubuwwah:
Hadhrat Imam Hasan (May Allah be well pleased with him) was going to Makkah by foot for Hajj. He developed swelling in his feet. His attendant requested him to take a mount so that the swelling of the feet lessens. Hadhrat Imam Hasan (May Allah be well pleased with him) didn’t accept his request and said: When we reach our destination, you will meet an Abyssinian. Buy oil from him. His slave says: We didn’t find any medicine on the way and when we reached our destination, the Imam said: This is the slave about whom you were told. Go, buy oil and give him its price.
When the slave went to buy the oil, the Abyssinian asked: For whom are you buying this oil? The slave said: For Imam Hasan (May Allah be well pleased with him). The Abyssinian said: Take me to him. I am also his slave.
When the Abyssinian was taken to Imam Hasan (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said: I am your slave, I will not take any payment from you. You please pray for my wife. She is in labor and pray that Almighty Allah should grant her a healthy baby. The Imam said: Go home! Almighty Allah will grant you such a baby the way you want it to be and he will be our follower. The Abyssinian returned home and found the situation as he was told it would be. (Shawahid Un Nubuwwah, Pg. No. 302)
In this Tradition, various miracles of Imam Hasan (May Allah be well pleased with him) are related. One is the foretelling where the medicine for the swelling of the feet will be found. The second is the prayer that the Abyssinian will be granted a healthy baby and it became as he was told. The third miracle is that the Imam foretold that the baby will be a boy and will be a follower of Imam Hasan (May Allah be well pleased with him).
‘Allama Muhammad bin Yousuf Salihi (May Allah shower His mercy on him) relates in Subul Ul Huda War Rashad:
Translation: ‘Abbas bin Hisham bin Muhammad Kufi narrates on the authority of his father who narrates on the authority of his grandfather, he says: There was a person in Karbala by name Zara’a. This accursed man had shot an arrow at Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him) when he had asked for water and wanted to drink it. His arrow had come between the Imam and the water. The Imam supplicated: Lord, make him thirsty. The narrator says: A person who was present at the time of his death told me that this person was feeling a lot of heat in his stomach and coldness in his back because of which he started screaming and shouting although ice was placed on his stomach and fans were used and at the back an urn was placed. He would shout: Give me water. This thirst is killing me. Honey mixed with barley, water and milk was brought to him in such quantity that it would suffice for 5 persons. He would gobble up everything and again cry out: Satisfy me. This thirst is killing me. At last, his stomach split open like a camel’s. (Subul Ul Huda War Rashad, Vol. 11, Pg. No. 79)
