Surah The cow 2, 253c (Shakir)
… We gave clear miracles to Isa son of Miriam,
The Qur'an gives Isa Al-Masih a mighty and glorious titles & names. He is called the Word of Allah (Surah 3:45, 3:39). Yes, only Isa Al-Masih is given such a lofty and important title. Why is this? Why are no other prophets given such a name or title? There must be something about Isa Al-Masih that is truly unique and superior to all the other prophets of Allah. Al-Quran declares the supremacy of Isa Al-Mash in Surah 4:71 by not only calling Him the Word of Allah but a Spirit from Allah as well. Isa Al-Masih is the voice of Allah. He was chosen to declare the will of God to man on earth. As God thinks so Isa Al-Mash speaks. And by the Spirit from Allah, He performed miracles that only God can perform. Sambanullah!

(Jesus)] a Messenger to the Children of Israel (saying): "I have come

The seven miracles of Isa recorded in the Qur'an are a sign
to mankind and a summary of the detailed accounts in the Injiil of how Isa
cared for the sick, the poor, the hungry and the downtrodden. Those miraculous healings give to all who will receive
for free the dignity of sons and daughters of God. Men who once were savages
are reclaimed and walk as princes. Alhamdulillah! What a joy to read the Injiil!
Could anything be more worth wile?
Certainly, Isa did not think it a waste of His time to heal the blind, lame and leper, raise the dead and feed the feckless multitudes. He loved people and had compassion on the multitudes. He invited persecution for healing the man with a withered arm, and from that moment on, there was a price on His head (see Injiil Matthew 12:10-13). But that man mattered to Isa, and his arm had to be restored, no matter what the personal cost. This is not mere religion, but Allah’s tangible love for humanity. Let’s look at these seven miracles in close detail:
