The Miracle of a Date Tree in Wesma

Ten to fifteen miles from Surat is a place called Wesma where there is a tree That moves according to the movement of the sun. It starts to bow from midday when the sun starts to sink and then lies on the ground when the sunsets. When the sun rises the next morning, it then gets up and stands upright untill midday, when it again starts to bow. Seeing this act of Shaytaan, many ignorant Muslims and Hindus regarded it to be a Karaamot and started taking vows and oaths there and also threw flowers and coconuts there.

Seeing this act of Shirk, the famous saint of Laajpor Hadhrat Soofi Sahib RAH. went with some of his students to the tree one night and despite a police guard, they managed to cut the tree at its roots and uprooted it.The effect of the Bapoo's breath is no indication of him being true because benefit can be derived from falsehood as well. When the wife of the great sahabi Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas'ood RAH. suffered of an eye problem she sould go to a Jewish Rabbi who would recite some incantations on a string. Which she hung around her neck. This would give her immediate relief. When Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas'ood RADI. broke the string, his wife said. It was giving me relief from pain that well nearly made my eyes fall out." Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas'ood RADI. explained to her that Shaytaan scratched at her eyes and would stop when the Jew recited the incantations. He then added, "Sufficient for you is that which Rasulullaah (SAW.)used to recite. (which is):

"Remove the difficulty. O Rabb of the people! Provide a cure because You are the only One Who can cure. There is no cure apart from the cure that You provide. Provide a cure that omits no disease.” And Allaah knows best what is most correct.
