What is the difference between miracles and magic?

All things agreed. But how does a commoner differentiate between the two?
If Allah assists you, there is none that can overcome you; and if He forsakes you, then who is there that can assist you after Him? And on Allah should the believers rely (Qur'an 3:160)

Valid question.

IMO, a commoner/layman has to rely on the specialist in the field in which the 'miracle' falls. If the specialists after studying and observing the miracle comes to the conclusion that it is, then the layman should accept the opinion.
