What is a miracle in Islam? The classical scholars of Islam listed many conditions for something to be considered a miracle according to Islamic theology. The first one is that which is impossible for human beings to do or perform. A miracle has to be something that can’t be manufactured. The second thing is that it breaks the laws of nature.
The Qur’an speaks of Allah’s creation with the intent of inspiring reflection on the creation’s beauty and reflection on the subtlety, the mechanics, the design, the technology of creation, the technology behind the single leaf, the symmetry involved; the advanced technology in a single cell or an atom, how precise that is, right. It wants people to reflect on the subtlety of Allah’s design and Allah’s creation. The miracle is in the choice of words used or given to describe the creation.
