The Four Birds

Once again Namrud discussed with Ibrahim on the matter of life and death.

He said to him: "I can give life to people and bring death to them. However, your Lord is unable to do that. You only claim that."

Again the guards brought Ibrahim out of prison. They made him stop before Namrud, who asked him: "Don't you say that your Lord give life to people and bring death to them die? Come on, show me that!" 

Our Prophet Ibrahim looked at the sky and said: "My Lord's power is over all things!"

Then Ibrahim raised his hands towards the sky and said: "My Lord, show me how You give life to the dead."

Allah, our Lord, asked: "What! Do you not believe?"

Our Prophet Ibrahim replied: "Yes, but in order that my heart may be at ease."

Then Allah, the Most High, ordered Ibrahim to take four birds, slaughter them, and then to put parts of their bodies on four mountains.

No one was able to give life to the four dead birds except Allah, Who created all things and gives life to man, animals, and plants.

Our Prophet Ibrahim stood on one of the mountains and shouted at the top of his voice: "Slaughtered birds, come to me with the permission of Allah!"

Then a wonderful thing happened. The heads of the birds returned to their bodies. Then their wings and their souls came back.

The birds' hearts began beating. Their wings began flapping. Then the birds flew high in the sky. They quickly sat at the feet of our Prophet Ibrahim and he prostrated to Allah, the Almighty Creator. However, Namrud disbelieved in this sign and commanded his guards to take Ibrahim to prison.
