Help from the Unseen


Maryam (alaihas salaam) was very pious from a young age. She used to miraculously receive fruit which were not even in season. When Zakariyya (alaihis salaam) would ask her as to where she was receiving all this fruit from, she would reply, “From Allah”. When she came of age, solely through the power of Allah Ta’ala she fell pregnant without any man touching her. It was from this pregnancy that Isa (alaihis salaam) was born. Since she gave birth without being married to a man, the Jews began accusing her of adultery. In order to prove them wrong, Allah Ta’ala gave Isa (alaihis salaam) the power to speak while he was still a baby. Those who had a sense of justice agreed that this was an example of Allah Ta’ala’s power, that Isa (alaihis salaam) was in fact born without a father and that his mother was pure and innocent.

Lesson: The great lesson we learn is that when one is devoted to Allah Ta’ala, He will provide for one from unseen sources and remove all one’s difficulties.
