Bringing back a dead tree to life

SHARE

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who said: In one of his journeys for Umrah, one of Zubair’s children who believed in Imamate of Imam Hassan (AS) was accompanying Imam (AS). In the middle of the journey, they stayed at a place for rest, near water under a date tree which was dried up. A carpet was laid under the tree for Imam Hassan (AS) and another one opposite Imam (AS) for Zubair’s son. At this time, Zubair’s son raised his head and said: I wished, this tree, had fresh date so that we could eat from it. Imam Hassan (AS) asked him: Do you like to eat fresh date? He replied: Yes. Then Imam Hassan (AS) raised his blessed hands towards the sky and recited a Dua quietly, somehow that Zubair’s son did not understand what Imam (AS) say. At this time, suddenly the dried up tree, became green with leaves and fresh date. A camel-driver who was with them said: Swear to God that Imam (AS) used magic and sorcery. Imam Hassan (AS) told him: This is not magic or sorcery, but it is the Dua of the son of the Prophet (PBUH) which was accepted (by Allah (SWT)) [1].
