The Prophet’s Miracles

The Hadith about the Stone’s Greeting the Prophet
Jaber Bin Samra reported that Prophet Muhammad said: "I know a stone in Makkah that was greeting me before legation, I know it now ". It is said that it’s the black stone and some said it is another one. Narrated by Muslim and At Tirmithy

And Abdullah bin Masoud said :” When I was walking in Makkah I used to see a stone I know, every time the Prophet passed over it I heard the stone saying :” Peace be upon you, Messenger of Allah.”
The Miracles Performed by the Prophet with his Sanctified Palm
On the authority of Abu Zayd ibn Akhtab (may Allah be pleased with him), he said: "Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) passed his hand on my face then invoked Allah for me."
Azrah said, that (Abu Zayd ibn Akhtab) lived one hundred and twenty years, and had only few grey hairs.' Narrated by Al-Tirmithi, considered as a “Hasan” Hadith by Al-Hakim and Al-Dhahabi agreed with him.
On the authority of Jaber ibn Samurah (may Allah be pleased with him), he said: "When boys passed by the Prophet (peace be upon him), he would pass his hands on one or both of their cheeks. When I passed by him, he passed his hand on one of my cheeks. My cheek which the Prophet (peace be upon him) had passed his hand on, looked better than the other one." Narrated by At-Tabarani and its origin is in Sahih Muslim.
On the authority of Abu Dharr (may Allah be pleased with him): "I attended a session for Allah's Messenger who then was holding a handful of gravel then the gravel said: 'Subhan Allah' i.e., All Praised be to Allah). Abu Bakr, Omar, `Uthman and `Aly were among us. All those who were in the session heard the gravel's Tasbih (saying:'Subhan Allah' i.e., All Praise be to Allah)" Narrated by Al-Tabarani and the “Isnad” (Chain of narrations) of At-Tabarani is “Sahih” right with reliable narrators.
This is well-expressed by Sheikh Jamal Addien Abu Zakariya Yahya ibn Yusuf As-Sarsari who said in a poem:
While mountains praised Allah responding to Dawood (David),
And titanic iron became flexible,
Hard rocks turned flexible, and gravel praised Allah in his palm.
While springs of water gushed forth by Moses' staff,
Water gushed forth from Muhammad's palm.
The Angles’ Protection over the Prophet (PBUH)
Abu Huraira reported that Abu Jahl asked some of the Polytheists whether Muhammad prays in front of all people. They told him: Yes. So Abu Jahl swore by their idols (Allat and Aluzza) that If he would see him praying, he would trample his neck, or cast dust on his face. He came to Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) when he was praying and tried to trample his neck. He came near the Prophet, but turned upon his heels and tried to repulse something with his hands. It was said to him: What is the matter with you? Abu Jahl said: There is between me and him a ditch of fire and terror and wings. Thereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace he upon him) said: If he were to come near me the Angels would have torn him to pieces. Then Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, revealed this verse:
“6 -Nay! Verily, man does transgress all bounds (in disbelief and evil deed, etc.). 7 -Because he considers himself self-sufficient. 8-Surely! Unto your Lord is the return. 9-Have you (O Muhammad ) seen him (i.e. Abu Jahl) who prevents, 10 -A slave (Muhammad) when he prays? 11-Tell me, if he (Muhammad) is on the guidance (of Allah)? 12-Or enjoins piety? 13-Tell me if he (the disbeliever, Abu Jahl) denies (the truth, i.e. this Qur'an), and turns away? 14-Knows he not that Allah does see (what he does)? 15-Nay! If he (Abu Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock, 16-A lying, sinful forelock! 17-Then, let him call upon his council (of helpers), 18-We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! 19-Nay! (O Muhammad)! Do not obey him (Abu Jahl). Fall prostrate and draw near to Allah! “
(Al-Alaq : 6-19)
