Misgiving about miracle and change in divine tradition

فارسی English 1302 Views |

According to transmitted principles, some express misgiving about prophets’ miracles: based on Divine Tradition, every creature is created by a particular cause and according to the Koranic noble verses Divine Traditions will not change:
The practice with any of Our messengers whom we have sent before you. You will never find any change in Our course! [The Night Journey. 77]
Therefore miracle is not accepted by them, due to the change in divine tradition.

The answer
Explaining the Koranic verses which indicate there is no change in divine traditions in a way that usual causes as the unchangeable traditions can not substitute, is not reasonable, because there are many verses which concern miracle and the negation of breaking cause by the effect, not negation of the multiplicity of various causes and substituting the unusual cause for the usual one:
The practice with any of Our messengers whom we have sent before you. You will never find any change in Our course! [The Night Journey. 77]
It is inferred from this verse that tradition is referred to the fixed and basic rules which will never change.
