Purity and Faith: The Story of Maryam
Transcript of Purity and Faith: The Story of Maryam
Chosen Women and Son
Over the years, Maryam became a rare example of devotion and worship unparalleled amongst the Children of Israel.
There was not a single person equal to her in her ‘ibadah or worship and prolonged prayers.
Imran was a righteous man who served of Allah among the Children of Israel. His people were disobedient to Allah, thus he and his wife Hannah had a child and named her Maryam (Mary).
Maryam was destined to be the mother of the holy Prophet Isa. Muslims believe that Isa was not crucified, but that he was taken up to the Heavens, and will return before the end of time.

The Chosen Ones
Maryam is Born
Hannah was surprised to give birth to a daughter because all the priests at that time were male. She was not disappointed to give birth to a female. Maryam was no ordinary girl, she was chosen amongst all women to be a devout worshipper herself.
As a young women she used to spend long periods of time in the temple praying to Allah and experiencing miracles.
The priests disputed amongst themselves as to which one of them would be her guardian. They all considered it a privilege to take care of the Imran’s daughter.
A man challenged his authority in both religion and the right to take care of Maryam. Eventually, they decided to throw pens into the Jordan River.
The rule was that the pen that goes against the flow of the river and stays still should win.
They repeated the process three times; Zakariyya, a pious prophet would be the guardian of Maryam.
