14 Nov Jesus’ (pbuh) Miracles by the will of Allah: Part 2
- The Stolen gold
While they were in Egypt , Isa ( peace be upon him ) and his mother , lived in the home of a devoted believer. Since he wished to submit himself to Allah, he opened a shelter for those in need. He took care of them and spent on them during their entire stay.
The man had some gold hidden next the the walls of his house . One day, while looking around, he realized his treasure had been stolen. He demanded everyone to gather together and not leave the place until the perpetrator will be exposed.
Isa ( peace be upon him ) however, by the Power of Allah, knew exactly who the thieves were and unmasked them . A blind man and another one who was paralyzed had conspired together to take the gold. Shocked by the accuracy of Isa’s ( peace be upon him ) knowledge, they returned the gold back to its owner.
- Creating alive birds out of clay, restoring eyesight, curing leprosy , bringing people back to life
The Prophet ( peace be upon him ) was sent to the children of Israel and received the revelation at the age of 30. He started preaching around the area of Al-Sham which is today formed by Palestine, Jordan and Syria.
When Isa ( peace be upon him ) began to spread the Word of Allah, people started asking for miracles as proof of what he was saying.
“And He will teach him the Book and the Wisdom – and the Torah and the Gospel,
”(And He will make him) a Messenger to the Children of Israel (saying to them, by way of explaining his mission): ‘Assuredly, I have come to you with a clear proof from your Lord: I fashion for you out of clay something in the shape of a bird, then I breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by God’s leave. And I heal the blind from birth and the leper, and I revive the dead, by God’s leave. And I inform you of what things you eat, and what you store up in your houses. Surely in this is a clear proof for you (demonstrating that I am a Messenger of God), if you are sincere believers (as you claim. ) ( Holy Quran , Al-‘Imran 48 , 49 )
As the Quran explains, even if Isa ( peace be upon him ) was taught the “ Book and the Wisdom – and the Torah and the Gospel “ , this was not enough for the children of Israel.
He shaped a bird out of clay and by the will of Allah and through His infinite Power, the bird came to life and flew away.
Since medicine was very popular during his time and all the people of knowledge were trying to find cures for the main illnesses like blindness, the miracles granted to Isa ( peace be upon him ) were related to this issue.
Since no one until that point was able to restore the sight to the blind, they understood that Isa’s ( peace be upon him ) abilities were truly a sign and a miracle from the Creator , the Possessor of all Cures and Knowledge. Above all this , he was also able to cure leprosy and give life to the dead.
