Mary and Miriam

Sharing Options

“Surah 19:29 . . . claims that Mary, the Mother of Jesus, was a sister of Aaron. Because Surah 66:12 describes Mary as the daughter of Imram (the Amram of Exodus 6:20), it would seem that Muhammad was again confused about the facts. He had evidently mistaken Mary (the mother of Jesus) for Miriam (Moses’ sister) and, in so doing, has tried to persuade us that Mary was the sister and daughter of two men who lived 1500 years earlier” (Peter Hammond, Slavery, Terrorism & Islam, p. 56).
