The Power Of A Strong Sahabah

"When his sword was broken while fighting, the Prophet (Sallallaahu 'Alayhi Wa Sallam) gave him a branch of date palm. He continued his attack on the enemy with this branch and in moments it became a sword" (About 'Ukaashah Bin Muhsin RadiyAllaahu 'Anhu)

Now before our imaginations start flying, I just want to clear something. The date palm branch didn't physically change into a sword, rather it became a substitute for a sword, and 'Ukaashah (RadiyAllaahu 'Anhu) used it as if it were a sword.

This shows the excellence of the as-haab of Rasoolullaah, and how they would make do with whatever was available.
