God endowed the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) with various miracles in the life of this world, as seen in: "... Jesus, son of Mary, of high esteem in this world and the hereafter, and one of those brought near." (Surah Al 'Imran, 45) He came into the world with no father, spoke while still in the cradle, and cured the sick in a miraculous way.
Moreover, when the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) made a clay object in the shape of a bird and breathed into it, the bird came to life by God's will. This fact is revealed in the Qur'an:
As a Messenger to the tribe of Israel, saying: "I have brought you a sign from your Lord. I will create the shape of a bird out of clay for you and then breathe into it and it will be a bird by God's permission..." (Surah Al 'Imran, 49)
Remember when God said, "Jesus, son of Mary, remember My blessing to you and to your mother when I reinforced you with the Purest Spirit so that you could speak to people in the cradle and when you were fully grown; and when I taught you the Book and Wisdom, and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you created a bird-shape out of clay by My permission, and then breathed into it and it became a bird by My permission..." (Surat al-Ma'ida, 110)
This bird comes to life independently of any natural cause, by God's leave and miracle. A living bird emerging from inanimate matter is one example of Almighty God's peerless, matchless and sublime creation. Through this miracle bestowed on him by God, the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) also reveals the illogicality and invalidity of evolutionist thinking.
This is one of His miracles, and an important truth that some Muslims who believe in evolution ignore.
A similar example mentions the Prophet Abraham(pbuh) and reveals how God endows inanimate things with life:
When Abraham said, "My Lord, show me how You bring the dead to life." He asked, "Do you not then believe?" He replied, "Indeed I do! But so that my heart may be at peace." He said, "Take four birds and train them to yourself. Then put a part of them on each mountain and call to them; they will come rushing to you. Know that God is Almighty, All-Wise."
