In The Bible there is a donkey speaking; a donkey talks with Prophet Balaam…. And this is in the Book of Numbers chapter 22 number 27-30 : 27 . And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff. 28 . And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times? 29 . And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee. 30 . And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay.
Al Atan: the female of donkey, jenny
I said : when the christen asked the Muslim about the story which we don’t approve made fun of and laughed at…. But we Muslims do not make fun as he did, cause we are not like him….
It is more amazing that in the Bible a donkey avoids the stupidity of a prophet… and this is in the Book of Peter 2 chapter 2 number 15-16 : 15. Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 . But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
I said : the donkey talking is not a problem; cause Allah is able to make him speak, and we don’t doubt Allah’s ability; and in Sunnah we have a wolf talked to give information about the prophet (peace be upon him), and pointed a talking cow….. and it is in the following :
1-The book The Prophecy Evidences by Al Bayhaqi number 2290 narrated from Abi Saeed Al Khdri, when a wolf attacked an Arab nomad and his sheep in the outskirt and took a ewe from his sheep, the Arab nomad man could catch the wolf and returned the ewe , the wolf walked away, then he returned with his tail tucked between his back legs in a submission position (1) facing the Arab nomad and said: woe, don’t you feel guilty (2) that you take away from me a food that Allah gave me , the nomad Arab sat down in front of the wolf and said : it is strange that a wolf talks the wolf said: you will be called for more strange thing than this, what is more strange than this ? Messenger of Allah between date palm trees tells people about the previous events, and what happens after, the nomad Arab led his sheep till he came near the Madina , and looked for the Prophet (peace be upon him) till he knocked at his door, he permitted him to enter, the Arab nomad talked to him then believed in him and said: <<if you prayed with the people tell me to attend>>, when the prophet (peace be upon him) prayed asked: <<who is the shepherd?>> the nomad Arab stood up, the Prophet (peace be upon him ) said to him : <<speak about what you have seen and heard>>, the nomad Arab talked about what he has seen and heard, then he (peace be upon him) said: <<I swear by Allah who created me, the day of Day of Resurrection will never come till one of you comes out from his household and then his sandal, his whip, or his walking stick tells him what his family did after him>>. Abduhameed Bin Bhram Al Fazary narrated from Shahr Bin Hwshab
1-Istathfara : the submission position of wolf, tucks his tail between his back legs till close to his belly
2- taharaj: to avoid sin and avoid being guilty with offending and troublesome.
2- Musanad Ahmad number 7047: from Abu Huraira the Prophet (peace be upon him) prayed with us then he turned his face to us and said : <<while a man was walking a cow, when he tried to ride the cow and beat her , the cow said : we are not created for this but for tilling>>. The people said: Glorified is Allah a talking cow. He (peace be upon him) said: <<but me and Abu Bakir and Omar believe in this >> both of them are not here <<there was a man with his sheep a wolf attacked him and took an ewe from him the man followed him and caught him he could rescue the ewe from the wolf , the wolf said: you rescued her from me but who will protect her in the day of beast of prey ((it is a day, at the end of the life on earth, in which the people become more concerned with life and fascinations and they don’t care about their cattle and sheep)). The people said Glorified is Allah a talking wolf, the prophet (peace be upon him s said: <<but me and Abu Bakir and Omar believe in this >> both of them are not here.
The comment of Shuaeb AL Arnwt: the reference is true with the confirmation by the two shaikhs.
But the real paradox is in the text of the Book of Peter 2 it is : when the donkey spoke, he had spoken to avoid the stupidity of a prophet!!
I ask: is the donkey cleverer than the prophet, and has more knowledge than a prophet as the Bible says?
Are some Messengers of Allah so stupid that a donkey avoids one of them from stupidity?
This is the paradox that for Allah we deny and don’t believe in.
