What I mean by a miracle are things like the Staff of Moses which transformed into a serpent or opened up the river of Nile, or the clothes of Joseph which healed Jacob's blind eyes.

Are there any more mentions of miracles in the Qur'an?

  • This question isn't about what I'm asking. The OP says: "I am not asking about the miracles mentioned in the Quran."

  • Could you add references to the stories you mentioned? I don't remember a dragon.

  • @G.Bach A'raf 107: Then (Moses) threw his rod, and behold! it was a serpent, plain (for all to see)! Though I'm not sure what word exactly needs to be used. Not sure what a serpent is :D. Do you suggest I replace dragon with serpent?

  • "Serpent" is a somewhat archaic word for large snakes. I don't know what the mufassirun said whether it was a dragon, and I don't know Arabic, but in the Bible it's snakes, and in most Quran translations I've seen too. Still, would be worthwhile adding the references to your question.

  • @G.Bach I'll just edit it from dragon to serpent and keep as translation.

It's quite difficult to list Allah's miracles, even if restricted to those mentioned in the Qur'an. Isn't every word in the Qur'an a miracle?

Here's a (likely incomplete) list where Allah specifically intervened and scientific laws were radically overruled:

  1. The creation of the Heavens and the Earth (Qur'an 2:29).

  2. The creation of man (Qur'an 3:59).

  3. Prophet Muhammad's night journey (Qur'an 17:1).

  4. The Moon splitting in two (Qur'an 54:1).

  5. The revelation of the Qur'an itself (Qur'an 17:88).

  6. Virgin Mary giving birth to Prophet Isa (Qur'an 19:20).

  7. Prophet Isa breathing life into a clay bird (Qur'an 3:49).

  8. Prophet Isa curing the blind and the leper (Qur'an 3:49).

  9. Prophet Isa giving life to the dead (Qur'an 3:49).

  10. Prophet Isa speaking from the cradle (Qur'an 19:29).

  11. The raising of Prophet Isa (Qur'an 4:158).

  12. Prophet Musa's staff consuming magicians' conjurations (Qur'an 26:45).

  13. Prophet Musa parting the seas (Qur'an 26:63).

  14. Prophet Musa bringing forth twelve springs from a stone (Qur'an 2:60).

  15. Prophet Nuh and the flood (Qur'an 11:44).

  16. Prophet Nuh lived for 950+ years (Qur'an 29:14).

  17. Prophet Jonah swallowed by the big fish (Qur'an 37:142).

  18. Destruction of the people of 'Ad (Qur'an 46:25).

  19. Destruction of the people of Lut (Qur'an 11:82).

  20. Destruction of the people who disbelieved Prophet Shu'ayb (Qur'an 11:94).

  21. Destruction of the people who disbelieved Prophet Saleh (Qur'an 27:51).

  22. Prophet Yusef's ability to interpret dreams (Qur'an 12:43).

  23. Prophet Abraham shown Heavens and Earth (Qur'an 6:75).

  24. Prophet Abraham Bringing dead birds back to life (Qur'an 2:260).

  25. Prophet Abraham thrown into fire, but which was made cool (Qur'an 21:69).

  26. Prophet Abraham sacrificing his son (Qur'an 37:103-107).

  27. Prophet Sulaiman and the spring of liquid copper (Qur'an 34:12).

  28. Prophet Sulaiman spoke to birds (Qur'an 27:22 and 38:19).

  29. Prophet Yaqub's clothes curing his father's (Prophet Jacob) blindness (Qur'an 12:93).

  30. Prophet Uzair died for 100 years and was revived (Qur'an 2:259).

  31. The dwellers of the cave slept for years (Qur'an 18:11).

Every Prophet named in the Qur'an has some miraculous element to their story (or else they wouldn't be a Prophet). There's a Wikipedia list of Miracles of Muhammad (many are hadith-based). There are also things I'm unsure if I should list, like angels and jinn, and Allah's she-camel.

Very nice list. How about - Prophet Moses speaking to Allah, Mountain crumbling into pieces due to Allahs light, birth of hazrath Hawwa from Hazrath Adam
