The Story of Maryam Bint Imran (Virgin Mary) Mother of Prophet Jesus (Isa) In Islam

BookRix

Lady Maryam Bint Imran or Virgin Mary (Arabic: مريم‎ Maryām), the mother of Jesus (Isa), is considered one of the most righteous women in the Islamic religion. She is mentioned more in the Quran than in the entire New Testament and is also the only woman mentioned by name in the Quran. According to the Quran, Prophet Jesus (Isa) was born miraculously by the will of God without a father. His mother is regarded as a chaste and virtuous woman and is said to have been a virgin. The Quran states clearly that Jesus was the result of a virgin birth, but that neither Mary nor her son were divine. In the Quran, no other woman is given more attention than Mary and the Quran states that Mary was chosen above all women:

Behold! the angels said: "O Mary! Allah hath chosen thee and purified thee - chosen thee above the women of all nations. {Quran, sura 3 (Al Imran), ayah 42[4]}

The nineteenth chapter of the Quran, Maryam (sura) is named after her and is, to some extent, about her life. Of the Quran's 114 suras, she is among only eight people who have a chapter named after them. Mary is specifically mentioned in the Quran, alongside Asiya, as an exemplar for all righteous women. Mary plays an important role in Islamic culture and religious tradition, and verses from the Quran relating to Mary are frequently inscribed on the mihrab of various mosques, including in the Hagia Sophia.

Mary is one of the most honored figures in Muslim history, with the majority of Muslims viewing her as one of the most righteous women to have lived, and a minority viewing her as an actual female prophet. Muslim women look upon her as an example and are known to visit both Muslim and Christian shrines. Muslim tradition, like Christian, honors her memory at Matariyyah near Cairo, and in Jerusalem. Muslims also visit the Bath of Mary in Jerusalem, where Muslim tradition recounts Mary once bathed, and this location was visited at times by women, who were seeking a cure for barrenness. Some plants have also been named after Mary, such as Maryammiah, which, as tradition recounts, acquired its sweet scent when Mary wiped her forehead with its leaves. Another plant is Kaff Maryam (Anastatica), which was used by some Muslim women to help in pregnancy, and the water of this plant was given to women to drink while praying.

Se cree que el profeta Adán fue el primer ser humano en la tierra y el primer profeta del Islam. El papel de Adán como padre de la raza humana es visto por los musulmanes con respeto. Los musulmanes también se refieren a su mujer, Eva (Hawa), como “la madre de la humanidad”. Los musulmanes ven a Adán como el primer musulmán, ya que el Corán promulga que todos los profetas predicaron la misma fe de sumisión a Dios. Su historia se narra en el Corán en numerosos lugares, aunque su relato difiere del de la Tora en algunos aspectos.
Un hadiz sunita dice que mientras Adán dormía, Dios tomó una costilla suya y de ella creó a la mujer Eva; sin embargo, mientras que la creación de Adán y Eva se menciona en el Corán, no se especifica el método exacto de la creación. El Corán luego dice que Dios ordenó que Adán y Eva (Hawa) no comieran de un árbol en el cielo, pero Iblis (Lucifer de la raza de los genios) consiguió convencerles para probarlo. Fue entonces que comenzaron a cubrirse, ya que ahora sabían que sus partes pudendas eran descubiertas. Por eso, Dios expulsó a Adán y Eva a la tierra.
Un hadiz sunita no-canónico también dice que Adán y Eva fueron arrojados lejos, por lo que tuvieron que buscarse uno al otro. En la teología islámica, no se cree que el pecado de Adán sea llevado por todos sus hijos. El hadiz dice que una vez que Adán estuvo en la tierra, Dios le enseñó cómo plantar las semillas y hornear pan. Eso iba a convertirse en el modo de vida de todos los hijos de Adán. Adán procedió a vivir aproximadamente 1000 años.
Según la historia de Adán, la humanidad ha aprendido todo de él. Fue el primero en aprender a sembrar, cosechar y hornear, también fue el primero enseñado cómo arrepentirse y cómo enterrar adecuadamente a alguien. Dios también le reveló las diversas restricciones de alimentos y el alfabeto. Fue nombrado el primer profeta y le fueron enseñados 21 pergaminos que fue capaz de esc
