Mary is the mother of Prophet Isa (PBUH), her mother and father had no child for many years. However, as the history recorded the birth of Mary, her father is not alive even before her birth.
Prophet Zakariyah’s (PBUH) wife’s sister had a daughter named Hannah. She was married to Imran, a leader of the Israelites.
For many years, the couple remained childless. Whenever Hannah saw another woman with a child, her longing for a baby increased. Although years had passed, she never lost hope. She believed that one day Allah would bless her with a child, on whom she would shower all her motherly love.
Who Is The Mother Of Mary?
Her name is Hannah and she is the daughter of Prophet Zakariya (PBUH)
Who Is The Father Of Mary?
Imran, Mary’s father name. He died before her birth.
Hannah Prayed To The Lord Of The Heaven And The Earth
She turned to the Lord of the heavens and the earth and pleaded with Him for a child. She would
offer the child in the service of Allah’s house, in the temple of Jerusalem.
Allah granted her request. When she learned that she was pregnant, she was the happiest woman alive and thanked Allah for His gift. Her overjoyed husband Imran also thanked Allah for His mercy.
Imran Passed Away Before The Birth Of Mary
However, while she was pregnant her husband passed away. Hannah wept bitterly. Alas, Imran did not live to see their child for whom they had so longed.
She gave birth to a girl, and again turned to Allah in prayer:
“O my Lord, I have delivered a female child,” and the male is not like the female, and I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge with You (Allah) for her and her offspring from Satan, the outcast.” (Ch 3:36 Quran)
