A mu’jiza is created by Allâhu ta’âlâ. Everything is created by Allâhu ta’âlâ. There is no creator other than Allâhu ta’âlâ. Only, in order for there to be order in the world and in worldly affairs, He has made the creation of everything dependent upon some causes. A person who wishes something to be created applies the cause related to that thing. Most causes are things that can be found by thinking, experience or calculation. When the cause of something is applied, Allâhu ta’âlâ creates it if He wills to.

The case is not so with a mu’jiza or karâma, Allâhu ta’âlâ creates these in an extraordinary way, without causes. Holding fast to the causes means to follow His law of causation. When He creates something without causes, He suspends His law and creates it extraordinarily. A mu’jiza happens only through Prophets. It does not happen through other people. Saying, “He performed a miracle,” or “He was saved miraculously”, which are said to praise someone, is the same as saying that the person in question is a Prophet. In this matter, not the intention but the expression should be considered. It causes disbelief to ascribe prophethood to someone. He who does so loses his îmân. So is the case with calling anyone other than Allâhu ta’âlâ “Creator” or saying that somebody has created such and such a thing. Muslims must avoid uttering such dangerous words.
