    What Quran or Islam says about Miracles After Prophets.? I mean Can a miracle happen after the prophets? Or if a person says that he saw a miracle in solitude, can that be true.?

    Quran only discusses miracles in relation to Prophets and more broadly in relation to their overall mission. Miracles do not have a stand-alone existence, they are always connected to prophets with helping them in achieving their goals with which they have been assigned. Therefore, after end of prophethood, there is no question of miracles similar to that of prophets. However, unusual experiences associated with ‘nafsi uloom’ are always present and people who have potential and skills for this particular field of study can actually demonstrate unusual feats. But this has nothing to do with miracles and we should never intermingle these two.

    For detail on Miracles, their nature and their purpose, please refer to the following lectures:

    But as we all believe that death is given by Allah and life is also given by Allah. So let suppose nowadays if someone throws someone in the fire or someone attacks someone in such a way that no one usually escapes from this attack but if a someone survives whether he is a Muslim or a non-Muslim But he survives because we All know that Allah Gives life and Allah gives Death

    So How would we describe this situation if someone suddenly survive these kind of incidents ?

      Why should I assume such hypotheticals? I prefer to not indulge in useless suppositions.

      The premise of religion is not built around miracles. It is built around much more tangible and logical arguments.

      To understand the premise of religion, please see:

    Brother why can’t you suppose.?

    I think Muslims Should Believe that Only Allah gives life and Death. So if Allah gives life and Death then if Allah wills then a Person can absolutely Come out of any incident Alive.

      Of course Allah can! but this is different from miracles of Prophets. What you’re referring to would be a miracle in literary sense but has no relationship with Miracles of Prophets. I still don’t understand the point you’re trying to come across by referring to such suppositions.

      For example, let’s say a person survived thrown into fire today, what does this prove? that person’s prophethood? Not even close! because after Prophet Muhammad (sws), no matter what, everything has to go through yardstick of Quran now. If Quran accepts it, so will we; if Quran rejects it, so will we. Nothing extraneous has a right to challenge Quran’s authority as being Meezan and Furqan in matters of religion.

    Brother I think you Misunderstood me.. I myself Believe in finality of Prophethood And I believe that Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) is the Last Prophet of Allah.. But I was just pondering that if Allah wills then Allah can show us miracle any time any where. Therefore, we must believe that Allah can show us a miracle at any time, but no one after Muhammad can claim that Allah has given him a miracle. But we can say that if Allah wills, Allah can show us His miracle, whether it may be in form of to save us miraculously or it may be in any way.

    If someone after Muhammad(Peace be upon him) escapes the fire or survives an extraordinary incidents and then makes a false claim of prophethood, we will not accept his false claim at all because it is clearly mentioned in the Qur’an that Muhammad is the seal of the prophets, but that does not mean that we will begin to deny the miracles of Allah
