If God Really Cares, Let Him Send Me a Miracle!

God sent miracles to Prophets in the past including Prophet Muhammad in order to strengthen the faith of those in doubt and establish His message firmly.

Yet, such miracles are no more.

Why?

There are some well-meaning individuals who put God to test by wishing to see a miracle from Him in order to fully believe that He is there and cares.

Let us first examine the definition of miracle:

“A surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.” (Oxford Dictionaries)

Many people may have had extraordinary experiences that they may call miracle, but there is a difference between these events and divinely ordained miracles given to Prophets.

For example, the parting of the Red Sea during Moses Exodus from Egypt, the bringing to life of the dead by Jesus, the revelation of Quran to an illiterate Prophet, which contains information not known to mankind as well as scientific statements unknown to humans until just the recent century. Certainly these were all performed by the permission of the Creator for specific reasons.

There are some well-meaning individuals who put God to test by wishing to see a miracle from Him in order to fully believe that He is there and cares for them.

Such persons do believe in God but have no personal relationship with Him. Such was also the case of the tribe of Quraysh to whom Muhammad was preaching at the advent of Islam.

{They said, “We will not believe you unless you cause a spring to gush out of the ground.} (Al-Isra’ 17:90)

More demands followed:

{Or unless you own a garden of date palms and grapes, with rivers running through it.} (17:91)

But even this would not be enough,

{Or unless you cause masses from the sky, as you claimed, to fall on us. Or unless you bring God and the angels before our eyes.} (17:92)
