A miracle is an event not explicable by natural or scientific laws. Such an event may be attributed to a supernatural being (especially a deity), magic, a miracle worker, a saint, or a religious leader.
Quran is the greatest miracle in the whole history of the world, which proves that it can never be made by any one but Allah with His unlimited powers and unlimited Knowledge.
Miracle is something that people can not do it e.g. Prophet Jesus was granted by Allah the ability to revive the dead and cure the cureless. His miracles were limited to his time and no one can witness any of Jesus miracles now. The miracles of Quran is everlasting and can be witnessed by any one, any where and any time. Quran has challenged its enemies who used to claim that it was made by Muhammad, to bring like Quran even if the gather all their allies and supporters from Jinns and humans. The enemies of Quran failed to stand to the challenge. Allah then challenged them to bring ten chapters like the chapters of Quran which are 114 chapters. They failed again. Then Allah challenged them to bring just one chapter like any of the 114 chapters of Quran. They failed again. This challenge has proven that Quran is never from any human source otherwise the enemies of Quran could have brought anything like it even one chapter like any of its 114 chapters. Millions of Arabs today are non Muslims and they know the Arabic language very well, yet none of them could make even one line like Quran. This is an evidence which is enough for any one who thinks in proper way.
Quran was revealed on the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) from Allah (SWT) and the allegation of obtaining it from Christians and Jewish communities has no scientific value at all, when you read Quran and compare it with the Jewish and Christian texts. Some similarities are there because the common origin of all the three texts is from Allah, but Torah and Bible were distorted while Quran remained remained constant and unchanged.
The miracle of splitting moon was witnessed by all the enemies of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and was mentioned clearly in Quran in front of all the enemies including the idol worship pets of Quraish, Jewish and Christians people, and none of them challenged it. This itself proves that it was an undeniable fact.
An ancient India document quoted by Muhammad Hameedullah in his book ( Muhammad, The Messenger of Allah) mentioned that a king in Malabar southern India by the name of Chakarwati Farmas has witnessed the splitting of the moon and informed others and traveled to Makkah to meet the Prophet. He accepted Islam and returned back india but died in the way back and buried in a place called Dhafaar which is now in Sultane of Oman. This document is still existing in the British Museum according to this book under number 2872/152-173.
In short, if this miracle mentioned in Quran did not happen, you would have seen many enemies of Quran denying it, but no one at all denied it.

the Qur'an is a miracle for past, present and future generations and its being in form of a book makes it reachable to every human being. Of course it must be understood and that is why knowledge has been made compulsory in Islam.
Other miracles would have been witnessed only by a group of people. Also, in modern times could have been falsified by the use of technology. On the contrary a book divinely preserved and passed down both orally and scripturally generation after generation do not present such problems.
Similarly, the crucial hadiths necessary for salvation have been passed down through divine providence and tawatur.
With prayers for your success.
No one can claim ability to show miracles but by the Prophets and Infallible Imams.
Jesus is a Prophet of God, so even if we accept that these are miracles, it proves that he is the messenger of Allah and is holy.
Moreover, Christianity is a religion of Allah but Muslims believe it happened distortion in this religion. And we should follow the religion of our time...
