 Assalamu-alaikum wa rahamatullahi wa barakatuhu:
 Christian missionaries have been calling Mary addressed as
of Aaron
acontradiction. Below is the verse:At length she brought the (babe) to her people, carrying him (in her arms). They said:"O Mary! truly an amazing thing hast thou brought! "O
of Aaron! Thy fatherwas not a man of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!"[Qur'an 19:27-28]
It turns out that Christians in Najran during the time of the Prophet
raised a similarobjection and it was answered by the Prophet
. In
Sahih Muslim ,
the hadith related byMughirah ibn Shu`bah [5326] says:
When I came to Najran, they (the Christians of Najran)asked me: You read "O sister of Harun" (i.e. Maryam) inthe Qur'an, whereas Moses was born much before Jesus.When I came back to Allah's Messenger
I asked him aboutthat, whereupon he said: The (people of the old age) usedto give names (to their persons) after the names ofApostle and pious persons who had gone before them.
 This claim of contradiction is apparently mistaken because it disregards both theArabic idiom and the context of the verse. In Arabic the word
 (Underlined withRedcolour in the images) carries two meanings.1.
Blood brother or sister and2.
Brotherhood/sisterhood in clan and faith.The above verse has used the word
in the second sense. This is not unusual asthe Qur'an uses the same idiomatic expression in several earlier verses. In chapter 11verse 78, Prophet Lot refers to the women folk of his community as
my daughters
.And his people came rushing towards him, and they had been long in the habit of practising abominations. He said: "O my people! Here are
my daughters
: they arepurer for you (if ye marry)! Now fear Allah, and cover me not with shame about myguests! Is there not among you a single right-minded man?"[Qur'an 11:78]In Chapter 7 verses 65, 73 and 85 Prophets Hud, Saleh and Shuaib
are referred to as"brothers" of their respective peoples.
And unto (the tribe of) A'ad (We sent)
their brother
, Hud. He said: O my people!Serve Allah. Ye have no other Allah save Him. Will ye not ward off (evil)?[Qur'an7:65]And to (the tribe of) Thamud (We sent)
their brother
Salih. He said: O my people!Serve Allah. Ye have no other Allah save Him. A wonder from your Lord hath comeunto you. Lo! this is the camel of Allah, a token unto you; so let her feed in Allah'searth, and touch her not with hurt lest painful torment seize you.[Qur'an 7:73]And unto Midian (We sent)
their brother
, Shu'eyb. He said: O my people! ServeAllah. Ye have no other Allah save Him. Lo! a clear proof hath come unto you fromyour Lord; so give full measure and full weight and wrong not mankind in theirgoods, and work not confusion in the earth after the fair ordering thereof. That will bebetter for you, if ye are believers.[Qur'an 7:85]
