The Need For Miracle, Even in The Period of Human Intellectual Maturity

The view which expresses that human does not need miracle, is wrong. Because the term “Miracle” is not applied in the Koran; it is interpreted as “Token” which means “Sign”, sign of revelation. It means that the contents of the Koran are not said by the Prophet but said by God.

When the Prophet logically talks about scientific subjects, it is possible to be proved. In this case, Prophet is a great scientist or philosopher but there is a difference between philosopher and prophet. Philosophers and scientists talk as the same level of people’s understanding, but prophets talk beyond this, although their talks are intellectual and logical, but they want to express that these are not said by themselves and revealed from God and prophets are supposed to tell them to people:

“I am only a human being like yourselves; but it is revealed to me” [The Cave (Kahf)/ 110].
“The Faithful Spirit has brought it down or your heart, so you may be a warner” [Poets (Sho’ara)/ 193 – 194].

The Prophet says: ”I talk in front of you, but my soul is connected to a divine source, whatever I tell you is said to me from that source. I am a messenger, messenger of God and give you His message.”
When a prophet says that he is sent from God, we have to accept him, if do not do so, we disobey God.

It is true that in the period of human intellectual maturity, prophet can prove his sayings logically, but it should be clear to us whether it is said by God or not.
When a prophet tells us that we should not drink wine, it is filthy and harmful to you; then he states the reason: “See alcoholic people, and the effects of wine on their body, their acts when they are drunk and also the crimes committed after drinking” with all these signs, wise and logic people understand that prophet is right.

Therefore in the period of human intellectual maturity, there is need for miracle, in order to confirm prophet.
