REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- The history of Islam knows the figure of Sham'un al-Ghozi or commonly called Samson by modern writers. This man is a prophet of God. One of the miracles that God bestowed upon him was the ability to soften iron and knock down palaces.

As the Prophet Muhammad told in a hadith, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) once knocked down the solid pillars of the palace with only his two hands.
