Hadith on Miracles: Rather, the gate of repentance and mercy for them

February 5, 2018

Ibn Abbas reported: The Quraish said to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, “Call upon your Lord to turn the mount of Safa into gold for us and we will have faith in you.” The Prophet said, “And you will do so?” They said yes. The Prophet supplicated to Allah and Gabriel came to him and he said, “Verily, your Lord Almighty greets you with peace. He says that if you wish, I will turn the mount of Safa into gold for them, but whoever among them disbelieves after that will be punished with a great punishment like no one else in the worlds. And if you wish, the door of repentance and mercy will be opened for them.” The Prophet said, “Rather, the door of repentance and mercy.”

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ قَالَتْ قُرَيْشٌ لِلنَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ أَنْ يَجْعَلَ لَنَا الصَّفَا ذَهَبًا وَنُؤْمِنُ بِكَ قَالَ وَتَفْعَلُونَ قَالُوا نَعَمْ قَالَ فَدَعَا فَأَتَاهُ جِبْرِيلُ فَقَالَ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ يَقْرَأُ عَلَيْكَ السَّلَامَ وَيَقُولُ إِنْ شِئْتَ أَصْبَحَ لَهُمْ الصَّفَا ذَهَبًا فَمَنْ كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ مِنْهُمْ عَذَّبْتُهُ عَذَابًا لَا أُعَذِّبُهُ أَحَدًا مِنْ الْعَالَمِينَ وَإِنْ شِئْتَ فَتَحْتُ لَهُمْ بَابَ التَّوْبَةِ وَالرَّحْمَةِ قَالَ بَلْ بَابُ التَّوْبَةِ وَالرَّحْمَةِ
