Another absurd claim made by Christians. Let us examine instances where others than Jesus not only were resurrected by some also had the power to resurrect others:
The Bible lists TEN separate occasions when God brought people back to life. The first one listed in Scripture is where Elijah the prophet raised a widow’s son from the dead. Elijah was staying in the person’s home when her son perish. After he stretched himself out over the child three times and cried out to the Eternal each time, something wonderful happened!
22. And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah, and the life of the child came into him again, and he lived (1Kings 17:22, HBFV throughout)
It is established that the awliya have spiritual communications and unveilings. (Al-Furqan, 52)
Among the fundamentals of the people of Ahl al-Sunna wa al-Jama`a is the belief in the miracles of the Awliya: Allah created supernatural acts through them in all aspects of life, revelations, power, and impressions. This is known of ancient nations in Surat al-Kahf and in other Quranic chapters and is known of the early men of this Ummah amongst the Sahabah and the Tabiun and amongst the rest of the generations of this Ummah. It will be with them to the Day of Resurrection. (Al-Wasitiya, 33)
“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” 1 Thessalonians 5:21
Struck with the contradictions which I encountered in endeavoring to disentangle the truth and falsehood of these opinions, I was led to make the following reflection: “The search after truth being the aim which I propose to myself, I ought in the first place to ascertain what are the bases of certitude.” In the next place I recognized that certitude is the clear and complete knowledge of things, such knowledge as leaves no room for doubt nor possibility of error and conjecture, so that there remains no room in the mind for error to find an entrance. In such a case it is necessary that the mind, fortified against all possibility of going astray, should embrace such a strong conviction that, if, for example, any one possessing the power of changing a stone into gold, or a stick into a serpent, should seek to shake the bases of this certitude, it would remain firm and immovable. Suppose, for instance, a man should come and say to me, who am firmly convinced that ten is more than three, “No; on the contrary, three is more than ten, and, to prove it, I change this rod into a serpent,” and supposing that he actually did so, I should remain none the less convinced of the falsity of his assertion, and although his miracle might arouse my astonishment, it would not instill any doubt into my belief.
