assalamu alaikum,

He was born of a virgin birth, meaning his mother Mariam was a virgin when he was born, if that is what you mean.

 

The response to your question is in surat Maryam,

 

ÞóÇáó ßóÐóáößö ÞóÇáó ÑóÈøõßö åõæó Úóáóíøó åóíøöäñ æóáöäóÌúÚóáóåõ ÂíóÉð áöáäøóÇÓö æóÑóÍúãóÉð ãøöäøóÇ æóßóÇäó ÃóãúÑðÇ ãøóÞúÖöíøðÇ {21}

[Yusufali 19:21] He said: "So (it will be): Thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: and (We wish) to appoint him as a Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us':It is a matter (so) decreed."

 

Peace!

Allah is most wise and only He knows the wisdom behind what He does. But I doubt it would have made a difference if, for example, prophet Musa had been the one without a father. People might have worshiped him just as much.

 

Every prophet has special characteristics. Prophet Adam was chosen as the father of all of mankind, and he was created without a mother OR a father. Prophet Musa spoke with Allah directly. Prophet Sulaiman had immense power and knowledge. And so on.

 

Allah created prophet Isa without a father as a sign to all of mankind. It is to demonstrate that He is able to do anything He pleases, and all it takes is the word "Be" for His will to happen.

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu

 

The Qur'anic Verse should be enough to be an answer.

 

In the Animal Kingdom we see that it is possible that if females don't find a male their are able to give birth although no male is around. For example, some shark species if the female is alone and does not find a male then it is possible that she deliver without the assistance of the male.

 

Miracles were sent to the prophets to proof their prophethood according to the science of the nation they were sent to. The most advanced science in Egypt during the time of Yusuf alayhissalam was interpreting dreams and fortunetelling but also ruling a nation; therefore, Yusuf performed miracles in those areas. The miracles were that the interpretations of dreams always came true. The other miracle was connected to political science. The way Yusuf distributed the wealth was a miracle. The way he managed Egypt in the most devastating time was a miracle.

 

The science of Egypt in the time of Musa alayhissalam was in the field of Optical Illusion. Therefore, Musa alayhissalam were given miracles in that field such as splitting the sea, sending of the plagues, and the incident when Musa's stick became a snake.

 

In the time of Muhammad salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Quraish and the other tribes had three major sciences in which they thought they were unsurpassed by other nations:

 

1. Poetry/LIterature: Therefore, Muhammad was given the miracle in this field and that is Qur'an. The Qur'an was revealed to Muhammad and Muhammad recited it unto the people although he was unlettered. How can an unlettered person come forward with such a miraculous piece of literature that non of the best poets of Arabia could compete with according to the Arabs? Literature has been a leading science until today therefore the miracle of Qur'an remains until the Hour. We see that the pen and literature is prevailing and reading material is everywhere now, but Qur'an is still unsurpassed.

 

2. Warfare: The Arabs were skilled in warfare: therefore, miracles were given to Muhammad and the Ummah in this field of expertise.

 

3. Natural Science and technology: Scientists make new discoveries just to find out the it was already mentioned in Qur'an 1400 years ago.

 

 

Now, the most developed science of the Children of israel during the time of Isa bin Maryam alayhissalam was in the field of Medicine. Therefore, miracles were sent in this field of expertise such as virgin birth, Jesus healing the sick and reviving the dead, but also speaking from the cradle. The miracles of Zakariya/Yahya were also in the field of medicine.
