By the Spiritual Leader of the Salawatia Mission of Ghana, Sheihu Hussain Rashid Salwat QUTUB AZ-ZAMAAN

I bear testimony that there is none worthy of worship but Allah. I also bear testimony that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah. May the Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon him and his household. I greet you with the Islamic greetings of peace and tranquility specially meant for people like you who have successfully gone through the ordeal of fasting, for the duration of a period of one full month of the Lunar moon of Ramadhan.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, throughout history, it has been observed that Prophets were sent with miracles that reflected the society and knowledge of the people they were sent to.

More than four thousand miracles are on record which were preformed by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Unlike the miracles of previous Prophets which only had applicability to a limited time, up to date, the Quran, the final Divine Document given to the last Prophet, is still a relevant miracle for humanity and will remain so to the last day. We are in a sophisticated age of science and technology and of profound knowledge both local and reason. Yet with all the advancement in every sphere of life, all the principles and the scientific data conform to that of the Quran.

Allah says in Quran 17:89. And We have explained to man, in this Quran, every kind of similitude: yet the greater part of men refuse it and are ingratitude! He also says in Quran 16:89. …and We have sent to you a Book explaining all things, a Guide, a Mercy, and Glad Tidings to Muslims. In Quran 12:111, He says The Quran is not a tale invented, but a confirmation of what went before it and a detailed exposition of all things, and a Guide and a Mercy to the believers. One example of the miraculous nature of the Quran is the provision contained in it of the preservation of the Body of Pharaoh, in the Quran 10: 91-92, it is stated thus, “We shall preserve your body that you may be a sign to those after you”. At the time of revelation of this verse, and even centuries after wards nobody knew that the body of Pharaoh is still preserved. But it has been discovered only recently, and is preserved in the museum of Cairo.
