Miracles of Syedna
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
u answered my question
u told miracles are always performed by allah and by those(prophets)whom allah has given such powers . imam and his representative syedna are also like prophets whon r "kaim makam"on this earth. so the y can of course surely perform such miracles as trhey are bestowed of "noor" of allah subhanahu.

Miracles of Syedna
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, it is in the Sole and Exclusive Power of Allah Subhanah Alone to bring about miracles; and He chooses and appoints any amongst His servants as He Pleases.
Allah Subhanah performs the miracles at the hands of His Prophets as a Sign towards the unbelievers, and the Prophets are made aware and they declare the miracles before the miracles take place!
The Imams and the Syednas or any of the other self-invented fancy titles man has assumed have absolutely no authority from Allah Subhanah! These people have absolutely no power to perform miracles, nor do they ever claim to perform miracles! It is only long after an event has taken place to their liking, their cronies and ignorant followers start claiming that it was a miracle of their self-appointed officials!
It is indeed a pitiful state that even after the revelation of the Book of Guidance (Al-Quran), some people who call themselves believers insist on giving super-natural powers and assign miracles to their self-appointed ‘holy men’ without an iota of authority from the All Mighty Lord!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
