On Thursday 28th April 2016 our Noble Shaykh Ṣalāḥ Kintūsh delivered a LIVE Tele-Lecture with Muwahhideen Publications entitled, “The Reality of the Miracles of the Awliyā` Between Extremism and Negligence”. The Shaykh was asked the following question after the lecture.
Questioner: There are some Christian Syrians in our country who have produced videos and pictures of co-called miracles performed by their priests and with the statues of Jesus and Mary and they claim that this is proof that they are upon the truth. How do we respond to this yā Shaykh?
Shaykh Ṣalāḥ Kintūsh(حفظه الله): ...Allāh said:
سَحَرُوا أَعْيُنَ النَّاسِ وَاسْتَرْهَبُوهُمْ وَجَاءُوا بِسِحْرٍ عَظِيم
So we say that being given some ability to put forth something that is out of the ordinary is no proof that a person is either following the truth or falsehood. The proof of following truth is having acceptable evidence and it is not a person having been given these out of the ordinary tricks and the likes because we know that the soothsayers, magicians and the likes of these people do such things.
The Shaykh continues his answer...
