Showing seas and ships

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Abu Ja’far Ibne Jarir Tabari has narrated through his authorities from Jabir that he said: We were present in the Prophet’s Masjid in the company of Imam Hasan (a) when we requested him to show us a miracle which we can describe to others.

The Holy Imam (a) kicked at the earth and we saw it split exposing oceans in which ships were sailing. Then he stretched out his hand and caught a fish and gave it to me.

I handed it to my son, Muhammad and told him to take it home. My son took it home and we cooked it and continued to eat from it for three full days.2
