The Miracles of Mohammed PSYCHIC QURAN

What does the Quran say about psychics? We've looked before at the bibles teachings on the subject of psychic abilities and paranormal phenomena but what does Islam say about the paranormal? 

We should start by noting that Islam is not that different from Christianity. The first five books of the old testament in the bible form the Jewish holy book: the Torah. If the new testament of Jesus Christ is the sequel to the Torah, the Quran is the final installment of the Abrahamic trilogy.

The reason I raise this point is that the teachings of the Quran include many of the same stories we have already examined. The prophets may have Arabic names, Abraham became Ibrahim for example,  but many of the examples of psychic phenomenon in the bible also occur in the Quran. Muslims, for example, also believe that Musa (Moses) parted the red sea, a story we are all familiar with from the book of Exodus.
The prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him, was noted to have performed a number of miracles with a psychic flavour and it is these which we are now going to examine.

The first miracle we shall look at is one which is very familiar to many of us psions: weather manipulation. One day in the city of Medina the people challenged Mohammed to make it rain. The city was enduring a drought crisis and Medina is in the deserts of Saudi Arabia after all so rain isn't as common as it is in the northern hemisphere. "Tell your God to make it rain" the people demanded. And so he did. Clouds formed in the clear sky and rain fell. In fact so much rain fell on the city that it began to flood. "tell your God to stop the rain" the people  pleaded. And Mohammed (pbuh) moved the clouds to the outskirts of the city, over the farms where it would be most beneficial. Many people converted and followed the prophet from then on.

Weather control is a psychic ability many people are reported to possess. I. Myself, can cause clouds to disperse in an exercise commonly known as cloud busting. Focus on a cloud, preferably a smaller one and command it to disperse and it shall. Summoning clouds and rain in particular is very difficult and you can understand why so many people were impressed by this feat.

The next miracle of the prophet we shall examine is his reported ability to create water from his finger tips. 

"I saw Allah's Apostle when the 'Asr prayer was due and the people searched for water to perform ablution but they could not find it. Later on (a pot full of) water for ablution was brought to Allah's Apostle . He put his hand in that pot and ordered the people to perform ablution from it. I saw the water springing out from underneath his fingers till all of them performed the ablution (it was one of the miracles of the Prophet)."

We could view this as a form of Hydrokinesis. Hydrokinesis is of course the psychical ability to manipulate liquid water. However in his case Mohammed (pbuh) was able to create water from nothing which is a much more difficult skill, one that I have not seen recreated.

Wow, just wow

The third and final miracle we will look at is truly incredible. We have really saved the best for last here. While the prophet was travelling trying to convince the people of Mecca to follow him he performed possibly the greatest miracle since the parting of the red sea: The prophet Mohammed split the moon in two. 

"We were along with God's Messenger at Mina, that moon was split up into two. One of its parts was behind the mountain and the other one was on this side of the mountain. God's Messenger said to us: Bear witness to this"

Whether this is an example of Telekinesis or Lunarkinesis I am not so sure. Its quite a feat though and you can understand why so many pagans would convert to Islam after witnessing such a miracle. 

Many poeple will argue that these miracles were not performed by the Prophet Mohammed at all. They will say that they are just allegorical stories exaggerated with each telling, like a game of chinese whispers. Other will say "No, these miracles were performed by Allah himself!". I don't know, you don't know, nobody really knows. Lets just sit back and admire the miracles.
