I don't recall for miracles of other Prophets or Messengers mentioned in the Qur'an that the text says "by God's permission" so why exclusively for Jesus (as)?

  • Can you provide an example of other miracles that are described by the prophets or messengers themselves without attributing the miracles to Allah (e.g., Yusuf attributing his miraculous knowledge to Allah in 12:37 If you give examples, we can discuss each example on a case-by-case basis.

This is to make Muslims and Christians understand that Jesus(peace be upon him) is not God. Whatever miracles Jesus did was purely by God's help and permission.

For the miracles of Jesus (pbuh), why does the Qur'an say "by the permission of God"? All the miracles performed by the prophets were by the permission and command of God. Because it was the place of the illusion that the people thought that Imam was independent in raising the dead, and therefore Jesus, after every miracle he announces, binds his word to the providence and permission of God Almighty.
