Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh al-Shanqeeti said: 

Part of the wisdom behind the fact that Allaah created ‘Eesa from a woman without a husband was to make that a sign for mankind, i.e., a sign that was indicative of His complete power, and to show that He can create whatever He wills however He wills. If He wills, He can create a person from a female without a male, as He did in the case of ‘Eesa. If He wills, He can create a person from a male without a female, as He did in the case of Hawwa’ (Eve), as He states in the aayah (interpretation of the meaning): 

“and from him (Adam) He created his wife [Hawwa (Eve)]”

[al-Nisaa’ 4:1]

i.e., from that soul, who was Adam, He created his partner, who was Hawwa’. If He wills, He can create a person without a male or a female, as He created Adam. And if He wills, he can create a person from a male and a female, as He did with the rest of the sons of Adam. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
