In these prophets all prophets of Jews and Christians are included, Jesus, Moses, Abraham are few of them. Jesus Miracles In Quran is mentioned more time than Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) by his name. Jesus Miracles In Quran is mentioned with the name of Isa (Peace be upon him).
Jesus Miracles In Quran:
Muslims believes in almost all miracles of Jesus Christ as a Christian. In Quran God mentions that He has given Jesus Miracles:
“And We gave unto Jesus, son of Mary, clear miracles” (Quran 2:87)
These are Jesus miracles In Quran:
- Miracleous birth of Jesus Christ
- Speaking from the cradle as Newly born baby
- Creating birds from clay
- Healing leper and blind
- The resurrection of the dead man
1. Miracleous birth of Jesus Christ:
In Holy Quran, Mary considered to virgin just like Christian believes. In Bible Mary mentioned 18 times while in Holy Quran Mary mentioned 32 times with name Marriyam. Almost double of Bible which shows her significance in Islam. Jesus Birth from Virgin Mary is one of Jesus Miracles In Quran.
The good news of the birth of Jesus In Holy Quran was given by angels to Mary. Mary became worried after hearing this news because she was virgin. here is verse:
“ And remember when the angels said, “O Mary, God sends you the good news of a Command of His: his name shall be Messiah, Jesus son of Mary. Mary said: “How, O Lord, shall I have a son when no man has ever touched me” Angels replied: “God creates whatever He wills. When He decrees a thing, He only says, “Be” and it is.” [Quran 3:45-46]
Angels also said God will teach him wisdom and gift him with knowledge of Torah, and appoint him Messenger to sons of Isreal.
2. Speaking from the cradle as Newly born baby:
Speaking from the cradle as the newly born baby is also one of Jesus Miracles In Quran. Jesus (peace be upon him) defend his mother by speaking from the cradle. He said “I am indeed a servant of Allah” which is the biggest Jesus Miracles In Quran. Here is verse:
“ At length she brought the (babe) to her people, carrying him (in her arms). They said: “O Mary! truly an amazing thing you have brought! “O sister of Aaron! your father was not a man of evil, nor your mother an unchaste woman!” But she pointed to the babe. They said: “how can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?” He said: “I am indeed a servant of Allah. ” [Quran 19:26-30]
In this verse, Mary being a virgin holy lady came back with newly born Jesus in her hand. People start criticising her and at moment Jesus speaks up to defend her mother and proves her innocence. There is the whole chapter in name of the mother of Jesus In Holy Quran with name Marriyam (meaning Mary in English).
3. Creating birds from clay:
Creating birds from clay is one of Jesus Miracles In Quran is unique as this miracle was only given to Jesus (Peace be upon him). This miracle is similar to creating to Adam as he was made from clay then soul was blown into him.
“ I create for you out of clay the likeness of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird with God’s permission.” [Quran 3:49]
All of these Miracles was with permission from God. Jesus creates the birds then breathe into it and it becomes a real bird.
4. Healing leper and blind:
Healing Leper and Blind is one of the Jesus Miracles In Quran. This miracle is also mentioned in the New Testament. At that time, Medicine was not developed and Leper and blind was the real problem for people of that time.
“I also heal the blind and the leper.” (Quran 3:49)
Thousands of people came to Jesus (Peace be upon him). He just prays for them and patient was healed.

5. The resurrection of the dead man:
The resurrection of the dead man was another one of Jesus Miracles In Quran. This miracle is also mentioned in New Testament. This was given to Jesus (Peace be upon him) so that people believe him that He is the man with special power sent by God. This miracle is mentioned in Quran in this verse.
“…and I bring to life the dead, by the permission of God.” [Quran 3:49]
Prescience is another one of the miracles of Jesus Miracles In Quran. Jesus (Peace be upon him) was able to preknowledge and predict when is going to happen with permission of God. Jesus was also able to answer the question asked by the challenger from his nation. He could also tell what they have eaten and have stored in their house.
“ I inform you too of what things you eat, and what you store up in your houses. Surely in that is a sign for you, if you are believers.” [Quran 3:49]
Basic thing which is common in all of these Jesus Miracles In Quran is that Jesus does all of these Miracles with Permission of God. God had given him these miracle so that his people understand these sign that he is the Messenger.
Muslims also believes in Prophet Jesus Christ to be the messenger of God just as Christians. All Muslims believes he (Jesus Christ) was born miraculously which many Christian don’t believe today.
