Qur’an 11:12 - Did the messengers perform miracles?

The Qur’an shows a high position to Jesus the Messiah, in contrast with other messengers. One of the unclear issues about performing miracles.

1. Muhammad didn’t perform miracles - Qur’an 11:12, 13:7, 29:50, 67:25-26

“Then would you possibly leave [out] some of what is revealed to you, or is your breast constrained by it because they say, "Why has there not been sent down to him a treasure or come with him an angel?" But you are only a warner. And Allah is Disposer of all things.” (Qur’an 11:12)

2. Jesus Christ performed miracles - Qur’an 2:253 , 2:87, 3:49, 5:110-111

“Those messengers - some of them We caused to exceed others. Among them were those to whom Allah spoke, and He raised some of them in degree. And We gave Jesus, the Son of Mary, clear proofs, and We supported him with the Pure Spirit. If Allah had willed, those [generations] succeeding them would not have fought each other after the clear proofs had come to them. But they differed, and some of them believed and some of them disbelieved. And if Allah had willed, they would not have fought each other, but Allah does what He intends.” (Qur’an 2:253)

3. Conclusion

Messengers like Muhammad didn’t perform any miracle, while Jesus the Messiah did many miracles. A contradiction between two sets of Qur’an verses.
