This is what I learned and hold it to be the truth. Common logic we might say?
Life for a tree or a plant depends on it's having a healthy root system that draws nutrients and moisture from the earth or whatever area that it is based in , whether in its natural environment or artificially induced surroundings such as a laboratory or a green house in which the tree or plant's nutrient requirements is fed to it in a controlled system set up?
Well, I have come across a situation that defies logic and if I didn't see the evidence supporting such a claim, I'd be amongst those who would have no hesitations in calling it a hoax and a fabrication just to seek attention from the world's media.
Something that can only be called as nothing but a 'miracle' has taken place in a city south of Lebanon.
Hundreds of visitors are flocking to Bint Jbeil, a city in the South of Lebanon from all over Lebanon and all other parts of the world to witness for themselves a miracle in the form of a tree that was cut off its roots in 2005 and displayed in the main City Hall of Bint Jbeil as a tribute to the martyrs who perished in the war with the Zionist regime of Israel.
On Wednesday, 1st of August, 2007, visitors to the exhibition were surprised to see green shoots emerge miraculously from the tree!
The tree sprouted branches and drops of fragrant smelling moisture started to ooze out from a crack that suddenly appeared on the trunk of the tree.
The trunk of the tree had been painted over with a dark coat of brown colored paint as the symbol of the bloodied earth of that area which was seeped with the blood of the fallen martyrs.
After the war with the rogue state of
The people of Bint Jbeil were amazed to see the number of leaves which had grown out of that tree trunk to be exactly 43, the same number of those ‘syuhada’ who were being remembered in that exhibit!
This miracle is regarded by the people there as a sign of Allah’s honor upon the souls of the 43 martyrs of Bint Jbeil.
‘Last Saturday night, we had held a thanksgiving function to celebrate the first anniversary of
We were sitting in the hall and listening to Haji Selim Bazzi, a respectable citizen of Bint Jbeil explaining to us the significance of having that symbolic tree trunk in the city hall as a monument to the syuhada’s @ martyrs.
There were no leaves or branches visible at that time and it was just a dead tree trunk coated with paint. Everything looked normal.’
‘Bint Jbeil is fast becoming known as the ‘City of
Now it has another new name. ‘The City of
‘May Allah shower His Blessings upon ‘Bint Jbeil and its Martyrs and bless each and everyone who has a noble and pure heart and wants to learn from this miracle!’.
This miracle shows how Allah the Most Magnificient elevates the status of those who sacrificed their lives for the sake of protecting their fellow Muslims and nation from the assault of the Israeli Zionist regime!
May we learn from this and reaffirm our faith in Ar Rahman, the Most Merciful Lord Almighty!
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! It is He who gives life to the dead and resurrects us when our mortal bodies return to the earth as He wills!
Subhanallah! Most Glorious is He, the Supreme Creator.
There are many things that are happening before us that at times leaves us clueless as to their causes and just like many other mysteries that have yet to be explained even by the foremost scientists of our times, we can only conclude that this 'Martyrs' Tree of 'Bint Jbeil of Lebanon is amongst them.Verily it is none but Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala Who Knows Best! Allahu Akbar!
A miracle nonetheless if I may say so. Wallahu 'alam bissawab.

Traces of the fragrant moisture that has dropped onto the wooden base of the mounted tree trunk.
Scientifically speaking, that trunk should have dried up and died as it has been severed from its root base and there is no source of moisture supplied to the sawed off tree trunk!
How did this tree trunk sprout branches and leaves equal to the exact number of the martyrs being honored?
43 freshly grown live leaves to the exact number of 43 martyrs being honored with their names of wooden plaques attached to the tree trunk's branches?
See with your own eyes the miracle here! Live new branches sprouting from a painted over and cut tree trunk from one of the battle areas of 'Bint Jbeil in South Lebanon. Masya Allah!
The small wooden plaques bearing the 43 names of the syuhada of 'Bint Jbeil.
Miracle defies logic! Science gets stupified! Unexplainable. Even 'Einstein if he was alive would be stumped to explain this?
The fragrant moisture sap seeping out from the trunk of the 'dead' but miraculously alive 'Martyr's Tree Trunk of Bint Jbeil, South Lebanon.

Visitors marveling at this miracle of their times. If this had happened here in Malaysia, the bomoh's and priests of the other faiths would have congregated around the tree and come up with their own interpretations of such a miracle?
If it had happened in the Peninsular, huge bumper to bumper traffic jams would have paralysed the highways and trunk roads as a result of cure seekers converging to the area?
Confidence tricksters would have made a killing selling 'air hikmat' or 'air jampi' touted to be mixed with drops of that fragrant moisture dripping from the tree trunk itself?
The 4D punters would have a field day and Sports Toto and Magnum Sweepstakes would be facing a rush from the hordes of gamblers who would be wanting to try their luck placing such bets based on this out of the ordinary happening! :P
As with any other people on Earth, things like this draw people to them just like ants detecting sugar or anything sweet. This is where the Muslims Aqeedah gets tested and those who are weak and ill learned will go gaga and bonkers over venerating anything that defies their comprehension.
Just look at this as a miracle from Allah the Almighty but do not get distracted by such a phenomenon. Remain steadfast to your Iman and remember that it is the Will of Allah for such a miracle to happen!
As I remember the Hadith of Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam when the Al-Dajjal comes into being here on Earth, the miracles that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala would give him the abilities to test the faith of Mankind would be so mind boggling that many would succumb to their base sense of holding anything extraordinary to be something that they can only hold to be nothing but divine and will follow the Anti-Christ to Hellfire!
Hazrat Eesa ibnu Maryam Al Masih Alaihis Salam would descend to the Earth in Sham @ Syria near Damsyik @ Damascus and fight the Dajjal and kill him.
The blessed Prophet of Allah, Saiyidina Eesa ibnu Maryam Alaihis Salam would complete his mission on Earth that is to uphold the creed of Ar Rahman and proclaim 'La ila ha ill lall Laah ; Muhammad dar Rasulullah'.
May Peace, Mercy and Blessings of Allah be upon us all. Ameen.
