Hair of Hazrat Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)

Q: I would like to know about the Prophets hair which is exhibited during 9th of month Rabiul Awwal every year for public to have blessings. It is believed that some hairs will move by them self and many had witnessed it. Some hairs grow and some of them offshoot new hairs. I myself have witnessed it at one place.  I would like to know the reality of this miracle.


A: On the occasion of Hajjatul Wadaa’, Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) distributed his mubaarak hair amongst the Sahaba (Radiyallahu Anhum). From amongst those who received the mubaarak hair of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) were Hazrat Abu Talha and his respected wife Hazrat Ummi Sulaim (Radiyallahu Anhuma). If the hair you are referring to is from that hair of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then it is authentic.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
