In ancient times and even in modern times if you claimed to be enlightened,a great prophet or even God himself it was and is expected that you preform
miracle as proof that you are who you say you are.
During Muhammads life he was actually not that popular because the locals would ask him to preform a miracle to prove he was who he said he was but he
was unable to do so.
Q. 17: 90
They say: "We shall not believe in thee, until thou cause a spring to gush forth for us from the earth,
Q. 25: 7
And they say: "What sort of a messenger is this, who eats food, and walks through the streets? Why has not an angel been sent down to him to give
admonition with him?
Q. 15: 07
Why do you not bring to us the angels if you are of the truthful ones?
There is not a single miracle in the entire quran preformed by Muhammad. Muhammad actually says himself in the Quran that the only miracle that can
be attributed to him was the writing of the Quran itself!
If Muhammad was a University student and the Quran was a thesis/dissertation he would be done for plagiarism because his book heavily borrowed from
Jewish, christian, Zoroastrian, pagan religions of the time.
After Muhammeds death his followers were trying to increase their numbers but continuously people would say why should we follow this man, what
miracles did he preform. It was then that the Hadith got together and said, OK if they want miracles lets give them miracles and what blossomed from
The people of Mecca asked Allah's Apostle to show them a miracle. So he showed them the moon split in two halves between which they saw the Hiram'
Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 208

They knew that Moses had split the red sea in two and wanted to go one better so they thought lets say he split the moon in two!
"Or this one that claims he made water out of nothing. "
Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 830 ,831, 832
"I saw Allah's Apostle when the 'Asr prayer was due and the people searched for water to perform ablution but they could not find it. Later on (a
pot full of) water for ablution was brought to Allah's Apostle . He put his hand in that pot and ordered the people to perform ablution from it. I
saw the water springing out from underneath his fingers till all of them performed the ablution (it was one of the miracles of the Prophet)."
Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 4, Number 170
Narrated Anas bin Malik
They knew that Jesus turned water into wine so they thought lets do one better, make water out of nothing!
There are other miracles like making a tree walk but all made up by the Hadith long after Muhammad's death!
