Does A Liar Display A Mu'jiza?

A mu'jiza's denoting a Prophet's truthfulness is not a belief resulting out of hearing, either. It is a natural indication. That is, when a mu'jiza is seen, Allâhu ta'âlâ creates in the person who sees it the knowledge that the person announcing his prophethood is telling the truth. Such is Allâhu ta'âlâ's divine law. This is so because, though it is possible for a liar to display a mu'jiza, it has never happened. If the person announcing his prophethood causes a mountain to rise and says, "If you believe me, this mountain shall go back to its place. If you don't believe me, it will fall on your heads," and if they see that the mountain moves back towards its place when they want to believe and towards them when they think of not believing, it will be understood, through divine law, that he is telling the truth. Yes, it is possible – in view of the intellect – for such an absolute mu'jiza to happen from a liar, but it is not the divine law of Allâhu ta'âlâ. That is, it has never been seen.
