Isa Jesus AS Part I
Maryam AS, the mother of Isa AS
The final prophet descended from Bani Israel (from the lineage of Ishaq AS, the son of Ibrahim AS) ended with one of the most prominent figures in human history, Isa (Jesus) AS. He was the last of the prophets of Bani Israel and no prophet existed between him and the final Prophet and Messenger, Muhammad (SAW), who was tourmaline noire bracelet homme descended from Ibrahim AS first son, Ismail AS.
We had touched upon the story of Maryam AS birth and upbringing in her early years, in the story of Zakariya AS Maryam AS was from an extremely noble lineage, descended from Daud AS and born of a pious man and woman. Her mother, bracelet homme islandais the wife of had been barren all her life and had reached old age. However, she made an earnest and sincere supplication to Allah, pledging that if she were granted a child, that she would dedicate that child to the pure service of Allah.
She conceived, but gave birth to a girl instead of a boy. This was unanticipated, for she had been hoping for a son who would also carry the honour of being a Prophet of Allah this being the ultimate servitude to Allah accorded to mankind. A woman would be unable to fulfil the role of a Prophet or Messenger. However, realising that Allah was the one who destined for her to have a daughter, she still fulfilled her vow, and dedicated the baby, Maryam AS, to Allah. She also made a supplication for Allah to protect Maryam AS and her offspring from Shaitan, the accursed.
Authentic Hadith states that baby is born but it is touched by Satan at the time of its birth, and it comes out screaming, except Maryam and swarovski bracelet homme tete de mort her son Isa. bague argent ines de la fressange bracelet homme cuir ursul In another hadith, it is stated that human when it is given birth, Satan kicks him on both sides, except Maryam and her son Isa. Didn you see how the baby cries when he comes out The Companions said: O Messenger of Allah. He said: happens when Satan kicks him on both his sides. the story of Zakariya AS, we saw how Maryam AS was entrusted to the bague argent et amethiste care of her uncle Zakariya AS after her father passed away. Maryam AS grew up in purity and beauty, displaying the ultimate good behaviour by her conduct, chastity and piety. She spent reduction taille bague argent her early years cloistered in the privacy of a separate room built bracelet homme symbolique especially for her within the walls of the sacred Baitul Maqdis, and this enclosure was forbidden to anyone else. Her days and nights were spent in the solitary worship of Allah.
Because of the earnestness of her devotion, Allah bestowed her with His special favours and provisions. For example, whenever Zakariya AS entered her prayer area, he used to find fresh fruits which were out of season. Being her guardian, he was the only man to have access to her place of seclusion, and he was surprised by the appearance of all this unusual food. He asked her where they came from, and Maryam AS replied that the provision was from Allah, who bestows upon who He wills without measure.
Allah also purified Maryam AS, and chose her above all the other women in the world. She was so highly honoured that she has an entire chapter in the Qur titled named after her (Surah Maryam). Further, she also had her family name as the title of another chapter in the Qur (Surah Aali Imran).
Allah SWT says: [mention] when the angels said, Maryam, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds. O Maryam, be devoutly obedient to your Lord and prostrate and bow with those who bow [in prayer]. (Al Qur 3:42 3:43)
Maryam AS piety, good behaviour and chastity are beyond reproach. Rasulullah SAW said that:
best of the women of the world are four: Maryam bint Aasiyah, the wife of Pharaoh, Khadijah bin Khuwailid, and Fatimah bint Muhammad the Messenger of Allah. (Al Tirmidhi)
In another hadith, it is stated that:
of bracelet homme gros maillons men reached to the position of perfection. But it is only three women who acquired this perfection: Maryam the daughter of Aasiyah the wife of Pharaoh, and Khadijah the daughter of Khuwailid, and the excellence of Aaishah over the other women is like the nouveau bracelet homme excellence of Tharid over other food. of the original vow made by Maryam AS mother prior to conceiving her Allah in His wisdom, was to give Maryam AS mother what she had prayed for, which was a Prophet to continue the delivery of the message of Islam. However, He had ordained for this Prophet to be of such noble lineage, from a mother who was revendre bague argent exceptionally pure, the highest woman of Allah creation, and the one who had been purified by Allah and selected by Him. Thus the full supplication of Maryam AS mother only crystalised two generations later.
The Conception and Birth of Isa AS
One day, Maryam AS withdrew from the companionship of her family and sat in seclusion towards the east. As was customary for her, she drew a veil, or screen, in order to guard her privacy. At this time, she received a strange visitor. It was an angel who materialised before her in the shape of a handsome man. Allah made him appear in this form, as human faculties are not able to withstand the sight of an angel in its original form.
And mention, [O Muhammad], in the Book [the story of] Maryam, when she withdrew from her family to a place toward the east. And she took, in seclusion from them, a screen. Then We sent to her Our Angel, and he bracelet homme cornaline represented himself to her as a well proportioned man. (Al Qur 19:16 19:17)
Maryam AS thought that he intended her harm. She immediately invoked the protection of Allah, saying:
I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, [so leave me], if you should be fearing of Allah. (Al Qur 19:18)
To this, the angel announced that he was a messenger sent by her Lord to give her the good tidings of a pure son. This child was to be named Masihi (Messiah, the anointed one), the son of Maryam. Maryam AS was understandably shocked by this announcement. It defied all logic and biology. She immediately questioned how this could be, for after all, she had never been touched by bracelet homme m cohen a man, nor had she indulged in any immoral or unchaste behaviour.
[it will be]; your Lord says, is easy for Me, bracelet homme 316l and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter [already] decreed. (Al Qur 19:21)
Another part of the Qur describes this strange encounter:
[And mention] when the angels said, Maryam, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of bague argent femme ajustable a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Isa, the son of Maryam distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah]. He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of the righteous. (Al Qur 3:45 3:46)
This was astounding news, but such is the nature of Allah that for anything to happen, He just needs to command it. Surah Al montre bracelet homme etanche Ya Sin says:
His command is only when He intends a thing that He says to it, and it is. (Al Qur 36:82)
Ordinarily, mankind reproduces through a union between a man and a woman. However, Allah showed us in the story of Adam AS that he was created by Allah without a mother or a father. That cycle of parentless creation then extended to Hawwa (Eve) who was created from a man: the rib of Adam AS without the involvement montre bracelet homme connecté of a mother. Allah then showed us that similarly, it is possible, with His will, for a man to be born of a woman without bracelet homme ancre boussole the involvement of a father.
It is not known, nor is it of any benefit for us to speculate, on what kind of pregnancy it was whether Maryam AS carried her child to full term for the normal nine months, or whether the process was accelerated. What is important is that the pregnancy was a great trial for her, because she knew that the immediate assumption of someone in her circumstances was that she had strayed into an immoral bracelet homme 18mm relationship with a man, and carried within her an bracelet homme pierre précieuse illegitimate child. This kind of gossip was imminent, for who would believe her if she explained what really transpired Even in traditional societies today, the birth of child out of wedlock can place the mother and child in mortal danger for having dishonoured herself and her family, what more the conservative society like the one she was living in which had prophets living in their midst
Maryam AS was at a loss. How was she to avert the inevitable slander and accusations Her character would be tainted and her honour would be in tatters, potentially also tainting the character of her pious family. It was a very heavy trial indeed, getting more difficult to bear when her swollen belly became more visible.
Some scholars said that when the signs of her pregnancy became obvious, Jacob bin Jacob An Najjar, the son of her maternal uncle, expressed his astonishment and disapproval. He was aware of her piety and righteousness, so he asked her: Maryam! Will bracelet homme malgache a plant grow without a seed She realised what he was alluding to, and said: who has created the first plant then asked: the child be born without a man She replied: Allah created Adam with no man and woman. It is also reported that Zakariyya AS, her bracelet homme titane diamant bague argent massif christofle uncle, asked similar questions and she provided him with similar replies.
As the time drew near, Maryam AS segregated herself completely from society. Alone and heavily pregnant, she left the comforts of her sanctuary, and walked some distance to Bethlehem, to be in total seclusion for the birth. One can fossil bracelet homme ancre only imagine the strain that she was under, about to deliver by herself and not knowing what lay in the future for her, and fearing the weight of the scandal that would ruin her and her family.
Maryam AS was alone, distressed and desperate, and then she felt the first pangs of labour. The wave of pain drove her to the trunk of a date tree. In her misery she wished that I that I had died before that, and become a thing forgotten! (Al Qur 19:23) She did not wish for death in the sense of a suicidal person who had given up on life, but she would rather have faced death instead of being the cause of fitnah or trial to the whole community…
