Miracles of Jesus
Like many other prophets before him, he was asked by his people to present
miracles, in order to support his mission, prove his truthfulness and emphasise
his apostleship. Thus Jesus offered many miracles as evidence of his Prophethood.
The Quran has mentioned the following miracles.
Jesus’ Miraculous Birth.
‘She (Maryam) said, "How shall I have a son, for no man has
ever touched me, and I am not an unchaste woman?" He (the angel) said,
"So it will be. Your Lord has said, "It is very easy for Me, and we intend
to appoint him as a sign unto men and a mercy from us. It is a matter which
has been decreed." 19/21.
It is clear from the birth of Jesus mentioned before that Jesus’ first
and foremost miracle, was his mother’s pregnancy and the way in which he
was conceived, merely by the breath and blow of an angel, without the intervention
of a man. His birth was a sign for the people, from the Lord, and significant
evidence of his being a prophet. His mother, Maryam, was confused as to
how she could become pregnant and the Lord’s answer to her query was satisfactory,
as well as all the other signs shown to her.
