Research from scientists concluded that fire can change color if the temperature is raised.
This is very much in accordance with the Prophet’s hadith about fire as follows:
“Fire is raised for a thousand years until it turns red, then raised again for a thousand years until it turns white, then raised again for a thousand years until it blackens, and that is called jet black.” [HR. At-Tirmidhi]
Then how can the Prophet know that the fire will change color if the temperature is raised? In the time of the prophet, no one was able to wait.
That is one of the truths of Muhammad’s words, which the Prophet might know if without guidance from Allah SWT.
