Beacon of light for women 2

Bibi Marīam radiallahu’anhu

Mary ( Marīam in Arabic), the mother of  Jesus (Essa alaihessalam), is considered one of the most righteous women in the Islamic tradition. She is also the only woman mentioned by name in the Quran. According to the Quran, Essa alaihessalam was born miraculously by the will of Allah without a father. His mother is regarded as an honorable and virtuous woman and is said to have been a virgin. The Quran states clearly that Isa alaihessalam was the result of a virgin birth, but that neither Marīam radiallahu’anhu nor her son was divine. In the Quran, no other woman is given more attention than Marīam radiallahu’anhuand the Quran states that Marīam radiallahu’anhu was chosen above all women:

Behold! The angels said: “O Marīam ! Allah hath chosen thee and purified thee- chosen thee above the women of all nations.”

—Quran, Surah 3 (Al- Imaran), verse 42

The 19th chapter of the Quran is named after her and is, to some extent, about her life. Of Quran’s 114 Surah she is among only eight people who have a chapter named after them.

Muslim literature narrates that Amram and his wife were old and childless.  One day, the sight of a bird in a tree feeding her young aroused Hanna’s desire for a child. She prayed to Allah to fulfill her desire and vowed, if her prayer was accepted, that her child would be dedicated to the service of Allah. She prayed for her child to remain protected from Satan  and Muslim tradition records a HADITH, which states that the only  born without the “touch of Satan,” were Marīam radiallahu’anhu and Essa  alaihesalam .

Bibi Marīam  radiallahu’anhu is believed to have been buried at the Tomb of the virgin Marīam radiallahu’anhu  in the Kidorn Valley, at the foot of the Mount of Olives, in Jerusalem.
