3. HOUSE OF IMRAN

The third surah of the Quran concerns the House of Imran – the family of Zachariah (a) and Sayyidina Mariam.

The surah mentions the dedication of Sayyidina Mariam to the temple and a miracle she experienced there.  If you would like to read about Zachariah (a) to the children there is a chapter concerning his story in My Little Lore of Light by Hajjah Amina Adil.

 

  • When Zachariah (a) saw that Sayyidina Mariam had fruits from Allah (s) in her prayer niche why did he decide to ask Allah (s) for a child?

Another miracle mentioned in this surah is where Prophet Isa (a) made a bird of clay and brought it to life which we now know as the bat.

  • Why do you think Prophet Isa (a) created a bat?
  • What do you know about bats?

 

THE ILLUSTRATION

The illustration for this chapter is a painting of the prayer niche of Sayyidina Mariam.
