How to Perform the Five Obligatory Prayers

The Miracles of the Prophets

There is not a single prophet without a miracle showing the truth of his call. A miracle is an extraordinary thing that happens to someone who claims to be a prophet, in accordance with his claim to prophecy, and nothing like that can be opposed.
