WATER

The Companions were left without water in a place called Zarwa. They were going to do wudu (ritual ablution) but they could not find enough water. Allaah's Messenger ordered them to bring a bowl of water. He dipped his hands into the bowl and water began to run from his ers like a fountain. Anas ibn Malik says that on that day they were three hundred people. [Nasai, 1.60; Bukhari, 4.233; Muslim, Hadith No. 2279]

Anas [RA] relates this incident on behalf of three hundred persons. Is it at all conceivable that those three hundred people would not have confirmed him, if they thought him to be truthful, or otherwise contradicted him? As a second example, during the campaign of Hudaybiya, the Companions complained to Allaah's Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] about the lack of water.

The Messenger of Allaah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] took an arrow out of his arrow-bag and ordered them to put it in the well of Samad. When they did that, the water of the well began to gush. During the campaign, all of the Companions drank from it and did wudu with it.[ Bukhari, Shurut] There are many examples of the Prophets miracles concerning water. They were related by numerous Companions and transmitted through various reliable channels.
