The true understanding of Miracle is "BE" and we experience "IT" .
The word “Miracle” has been grossly mistranslated and misunderstood.
Commonly it is accepted as
“an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divinity”
In a nut shell, Something Supernatural with a positive outcome; Allah intervening or changing the outcome favourably.
This ideology raises a question about Allah.
Why would Allah need to "change" an event or situation to produce a positive result?
Why wouldn’t he just set it up perfect the first time without the change required, isn’t he All-Knowing and knows what is required?
We must all understand Allah has no need to change the perfect system he set up. He would have placed what he desire before the perfect system even existed.
Think of how many precise calculations had to occur for the life to exist. We had no option but to live. It is true our parents had intercourse which produced us but every atom that went into creating us and our parents has been in place since the beginning of time and will continue until its death. Even the test (within life) was set before we existed and our choices (within free will) will determine how we will continue after he decides our test to be over.
The gift of life is a miracle that didn’t need to change to become, exist and flourish but was perfectly calculated and orchestrated by him alone and does exactly what he ordains. When he wills it lives, when he wills it dies.
AVERTING DEATH isn’t a miracle as most have come to understand it, merely your death wasn’t decreed for you then but will happen in future.
Think if it this way.
Hypothetically, Say you survived death of a major disaster where everyone else attending died, merely because your plans changed somehow beyond your control.
Or even say you were the sole survivor of a major catastrophe.
You and all those who witness your survival would consider both these situations a miracle that your still alive.
The truth is however Allah has already set your death, just like he set your life beyond anyone's control.
EVEN if everyone one of those unfortunates stayed at home and you were the only individual at that disaster site, they all would have perished and you would still be alive.
So then what is a miracle?
To understand what a miracle is we must first identify the word Allah uses in his book of truth.
The word for a miracle in the Quran is.....
Definition: sign, apparent sign, mark, indication, message, evidence, proof, miracle, communication,....
An example of the word in the Quran.
وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ لاَ يَعْلَمُونَ لَوْلاَ يُكَلِّمُنَا اللَّهُ أَوْ تَأْتِينَا آيَة ٌ كَذَلِكَ قَالَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ مِثْلَ قَوْلِهِمْ تَشَابَهَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ قَدْ بَيَّنَّا الآيَاتِ لِقَوْم ٍ يُوقِنُونَ
Wa Qāla Al-Ladhīna Lā Ya`lamūna Lawlā Yukallimunā Allāhu 'Aw Ta'tīnā 'Āyatun Kadhālika Qāla Al-Ladhīna Min Qablihim Mithla Qawlihim Tashābahat Qulūbuhum Qad Bayyannā Al-'Āyāti Liqawmin Yūqinūna
And those who do not know said: "If only Allah would speak to us, or a sign/miracle would come to us." It is the same thing that the people before them have said, their hearts are so similar! We have clarified the sign/miracle for a people who comprehend.
His book contains 6236 Miracles, Signs, Ayahs.
Every miracle in the Quran is sent as a verse, therefore it is always in the truth and cannot be beyond or super natural.
A miracle is something delivered to us by him, not changed. It was written to happen, it must come to pass.
His miracles/signs/ayats are also always presented to us with a common theme. Allah clarifies his miracles/signs using the universal governing laws of logic, ration, reason and all within TRUTH.
His book delivers a message that doesn’t supersede the natural order of life. It is written with scientific accuracy and thats the true miracle of it.
If the Quran had said pigs fly or clouds are made from cotton candy, we would reject the authenticity of the doctrine (and its author) due to it failing when compared to the natural order of life.
Allah word is explained and detailed in a manner that we would understand;
It gives us examples about the birds and winds, the trees and the stars, the good the bad, the human prophets and their interactions with others. His glorious book doesn't contain mythological concepts and is delivered ALL WITHIN THE TRUTH.
Allah is the truth and would not create something beyond it, or he will supersede himself.
So why do a majority of people believe Allahs miracle is something supernatural?
His miracle maybe beyond scientifically understanding but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t calculated precisely.
If Allah does interfere from outside of our perfectly measured existence, the very foundations of any existence would cease to exist.
It would mean inadvertently mean he forgot something from the original truth he created. It would go against his ayah his miracle,
BE! and it is.
A Miracle is Allah is whatever he deemed in his “BE” commandment and that something then happens at “IT”.
It might go against our logic of reason but whatever happened is logical, just not apparent.
For example, Lets say a guy survived a car crash without a scratch.
We can consider it a miracle.
We ask the guy about it and he responds by saying it was like time slowed down, I saw the telegraph pole go straight pass my face.
It is a miracle he survived yes and the guy would also agree. There is however a logical explanation. The true miracle isn't that Allah had to intervene (which goes against all logic of free will) but the Allah planned every element in that car, including the pole to go by without scratching the guy.
So Allah isn't changing the IT IS but merely placing the order in BE .....which then becomes.
The Quran is the “BE”, (ayat/miracle/sign/commandment) and we we live in the "it is” or its pages, recycling from one ayah to another.
(Everything is detailed within the book).
Look at the start of Rahman
55:1 The Almighty (Allah merely has to say)
55:2 He has taught the Quran (“BE!")
55:3 He has created man (and it is.)
It may be asked if then everything is written then what is free will?
Allah set up a multiple choice. As you answer, the next question ALREADY awaits for you next answer.
He doesn't answer it for us but chooses our questions. (That is why there are angels recording your decisions as we continue)
Think of it this way, Allah didn’t create man perfect but perfectly balanced to decide between right and wrong.
Consider a role play (rpg) video game.
The player in the game has options which affects the course of the game. The developer has already established all the cut scenes and every option that changes due to the players choice, even the final ending of the game
will change based on the journey you take.
The developer of the game knows all the choices that can be made and if he had not considered all the choices he would have to rewrite the entire game all over again with every new choice.
If the player decides to play the game strategically, physically etc then the game adapts and leads them down a path based on the choice.
At the end of the game you are given a run down of your choices and then justly rewarded.
Allah works in the same way.
He created life, each with our own RPGs and let us decide the journey we take. He doesn't answer our questions but only asks. The Quran tells us our actions are recorded as we go, they are not prerecord and on that day we will witness for ourselves our actions and agree with exactly what we deserve. Allah does know everything but by doing it this way everyone judges for themselves their actions and so he allows each person who sat the test to decide for themselves if they were worthy of being created.
As stated earlier Allah created man not perfect but perfectly balanced to choose between right and wrong. Human error is a part of every life so even if you made mistakes he has give the option of repenting and being forgiven. Boasting and being proud of your mistake/error/sin is the greatest sin.
Adam was removed due to going against Allah and committing a sin, the devil was removed for being proud so therefore to go against the established natural governing laws and the word of Allah and be proud of it instead of repenting is the greatest sin. That is when it becomes your fault. When you knowingly or purposefully go against the natural order and don't ask for forgiveness.
