Allah The Almighty supported His Prophets with miracles, which are extraordinary events that are usually of the same nature that the people of that particular prophet excelled at. For instance, the people of Prophet Moosa excelled at magic, so the miracle of Prophet Moosa was that he threw his staff and it turned to a serpent. Likewise, the people of Prophet ‘Eesa excelled at medicine, so Prophet ‘Eesa cured the blind and the leper, and gave life to the dead by the permission of Allah The Almighty. The Arabs excelled at poetry and rhetoric and therefore Allah The Almighty sent them the Quran and it was a miracle that they were not even able to compose one Soorah (Chapter) like it.

Below are some of the miracles of the Prophets, may Allah exalt their mention:   The miracle of Salih   Allah The Almighty sent Prophet Saalih to his people to call them to worship Allah The Almighty alone, and not to associate any partners with Him. They asked him to bring them proof of what he was saying, so Allah The Almighty supported him with the miracle of the she-camel. He made a unique she-camel emerge from between the mountain rocks. Some of them believed him, but the majority of them disbelieved and intended to kill the she-camel. Prophet Salih warned them saying (what means): {And to the Thamud [We sent] their brother Salih. He said, "O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord. This is the she-camel of Allah [sent] to you as a sign. So leave her to eat within Allah's land and do not touch her with harm, lest there seize you a painful punishment.} [Quran 7:73]   The miracle of Ibraheem (Abraham)   Ibraheem rejected the practices of his people. They worshipped idols that could neither harm nor benefit them. One day, he destroyed the idols without anyone seeing him. When his people came to know that it was Ibraheem who had done that, they prepared a huge fire and threw him into it. However, the fire did not burn Ibraheem and did not affect him at all, as Allah The Almighty ordered it not to burn him. Allah The Almighty Says (what means): {They said, "Burn him and support your gods - if you are to act. "Allah Said, "O fire, be coolness and safety upon Abraham." And they intended for him harm, but We Made them the greatest losers.} [Quran 21:68-70]   The miracle of Moosa (Moses)   Allah The Almighty Says (what means): {And what is that in your right hand, O Moses?"He said, "It is my staff; I lean upon it, and I bring down leaves for my sheep and I have therein other uses." [Allah] said, "Throw it down, O Moses." So he threw it down, and thereupon it was a snake, moving swiftly.} [Quran 20:17-20] The staff was one of the miracles given to Prophet Moosa . By that staff, he defeated the magicians of Pharaoh, extracted water from rock and turned the sea into land by the permission of Allah The Almighty so that He would save the believers and punish the disbelievers.   The miracles of ‘Eesa   The miracle of Prophet ‘Eesa was that he cured the blind and the leper, and gave life to the dead by the permission of Allah The Almighty. He would design the form of a bird from clay, breathe into itand it became a bird by the permission of Allah The Almighty. Allah The Almighty Says (what means): {And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], 'Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah. And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead - by permission of Allah. And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers.} [Quran 3:49]   Another miracle of Prophet ‘Eesa was the table that was sent down from heaven with food. His people wanted him to ask Allah The Almighty to send down a table spread with food so that their faith would increase. They urged him to supplicate His Lord to do so, and he warned them, but they insisted, so Allah The Almighty sent down the table so that it would be a miracle of Prophet ‘Eesa . Allah The Almighty Says (what means): {[And remember] when the disciples said, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, can your Lord send down to us a table [spread with food] from the heaven? [Jesus] said," Fear Allah, if you should be believers."They said, "We wish to eat from it and let our hearts be reassured and know that you have been truthful to us and be among its witnesses."Said Jesus, the son of Mary, "O Allah, our Lord, send down to us a table [spread with food] from the heaven to be for us a festival for the first of us and the last of us and a sign from You. And provide for us, and You are the best of providers. "Allah said, "Indeed, I will send it down to you, but whoever disbelieves afterwards from among you - then indeed will I punish him with a punishment by which I have not punished anyone among the Worlds."} [Quran 5: 112-115]
