Abstract

The miracles are one of the most significant studies of the Holy Quran and the Holy Bible. The Muslim and Christian scholars both are agreed about the meanings of miracles but differ in number, nature, and sources. The objectives of the miracles are to help out the Messengers for preaching and establishing reason on public. The Muslims and Christians both have strong faith on the Christ’s miracles in the Quran and the Bible. The Muslims understand these miracles as the sign of dignity and respect of Jesus Christ from Allah, but the Christians claim them as the sign of God-ship of Christ, which is not true interpretation. Many verses of the Quran and Ahadīth of the Prophet (PBUH) reject these controversial views.  A variety of Christ’s miracles are described in Quran and Bible in various contexts but some of them are described only in the Quran and do not mentioned in Bible; For example: 1- speaking of Christ in the Cot, 2- To save the Jesus from Jews, 3-The food comes down from heaven, 4-Jesus Christ makes birds from mud and 5-News about food eating.  Muslims and Christians scholars differ about these miracles which are only mention in the Quran or the Bible. Muslim scholars accept the Christ’s miracles of Quran and also in the Bible but according to Christian scholars’ views these miracles are not acceptable because they are taken from unauthentic, agnostic and apocryphal Christian sources of Christianity. This important study deals with the miracles of Jesus Christ which are only described in the Quran but do not mentioned in the Bible in the light of Muslim-Christian’s scholarly views.
