Just like He provides for you and me
Gifts of Fruit
Allah would send Maryam ‘alayhas salām fruits. But not just any fruits! The rarest of fruits, available to none would be sent to her.
Such was Allah’s favour upon her that even Prophet Zakariah would be left perplexed!
Commentators of Tafsīr say that it was the miracles that Zakariah saw upon Maryam ‘alayhas salām that encouraged him to ask for an offspring despite his old age and his wife’s infertility.
Maryam would be given fruits of winter in the summer and fruits of summer in the winter. Prophet Zakariah reasoned that He who is able to bring forth what is out of its time (out of season) can surely bring forth a child from one who is barren.
Maryam ‘alayhas salām was provided for by Allah. Her rizq came from Allah. Just like Allah provides for every other creation. Just like He provides for you and me.
(She did not compromise her hijāb or free mix or look at ḥarām sources in search for this Rizq.)
