Honouring the Virgin Mary in Islam. More honour- able than the cherubim and past compare more glorious than the seraphim, who inviolate didst bear God the Word, very Mother of God, thee we magnify. Introduction The Mother of God has a place and a privileged role in the hierarchy of beings of this world, belonging to humanity due to the human nature she possessed, but being honoured, more than the angels, due her gift, that of giving birth to the Son of God in this world, in time and in the Jewish law, becoming, thus, an intermediary for His Incarnation.

Or, the Incarnation is one of the great mysteries of Christianity cf. Timothy 3, 16 1, Our Lady entering this sacrament of the true faith. Ioan Z grean, Pr. If sin came into the world through old Eva, salvation would come into the world through the new Eve, the Mother of God. And the Lord said to me: This gate will be closed, not open and no man shall enter by it, for the Lord God of Israel has entered by it.

Therefore it will be closed. God Himself honoured the Virgin Mary by choosing her, out of all the women of the earth, to carry in her womb His only begotten Son. Blessed are you among women. And she saw him, was troubled by his word, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this might be? And whence is this to come to me the mother of my Lord? Mary in Islam — general considerations Beyond the visible Church, more than a billion faithful Muslims be- lieve, as we Orthodox do, that the Mother of God is the Virgin and that her destiny is closely linked to that of his Son, Jesus Christ, the Prophet.

However, for us Christians, it is a great joy to know that the Virgin Mary ,in Islam, enjoys a high re- gard, we could say, even veneration within certain limits, for her virtues and gifts that are unequalled. Mary exerts a powerful fascination throughout the Islamic world, so far.

Z grean, I. Its content can create great problems for the Muslim theologians,who, did not avoid to give some answers in this case. On the contrary,they proved an extraordinay probity using even those texts referring to Virgin Mary that are not favorable to them or those that oppose their doctrinal tendencies. The Prophet of Islam reserves her a unique position in the Quran, a position that no other woman has, not even his favourite wives Khadija and Aisha nor his much loved daughter: Fatima or the wife of the Pharaoh of Egypt.

In fact, staying away from the evil touch of Satan is only for Christ and His Mother Mary, of the whole human race. Pallavicini, La Sura di Maria. Traduzione e commento del capitolo XIX del Corano, p. A se consulta i Evanghelii apocrife, Trad. Virgin Mary in the prophetic Islamic genealogy In the Gospels, the Virgin Mary and her mission of intermediary be- tween God and man Matthew 1, 18, Luke 1, was prepared before hand, being included in the line of those men of God who have received the messianic promises, as Abraham, David, Isaiah, etc.

See Evanghelii apo- crife, Trad. God is Hearer and Knower. Ragozzino, La Madona dei musulmani Capanini, Milano, , p. God [ About honouring the Virgin Mary in Islam Although the ordinary Muslim believer knows that Maryam is the mother of Prophet Isa, he knows too little about her.

But we can say that he has no inter- est in being informed about her or in becoming a scholar in the religious issues raised by her person. As we can see, these names that go beyond the ones recommended by the teach- ings of Kalam in this regard. In the Islamic world, the faithful have great respect for Mary, so great that none could afford to make jokes on the person or on her name.

This respect is manifested in different ways. First, when talking about her, be- lievers are very careful about the correctness of language, the terms cho- sen. They show their respect by giving their daughters the name of Mary- am and by respecting her images and icons that they consider as carrying blessings.

In written works, on radio or television, when in dispute with Christians, they avoid any argument, due to their respect and veneration. Fragments of this sura are recited during the Muslim funeral during the moment of condolences, especially if one of the participants is a Christian, as a gesture of friend- ship, and other times, when Christians with Muslims are together, or in the inter-religious meetings and dialogues.

For example, in Iraq, in a television has transmitted a series of mostly about Jesus and Maria, the two characters being totally Islamized. Traduzione e commento del capitolo XIX del Corano, pp. It is said that King Negus was thrilled to hear the recitation, but was even more impressed when the content of the Sura was translated, so he decided to ban the heathen Meccans and continue to pro- tect the Muslims. Prayers addressed to holy Virgin Mary and the veneration of her images icons Muslim women strongly believe that Our Lady can do wonders and remember this especially in moments of trouble in life when they have to face trials.

It is interesting to mention the fact that the image or icon of the Virgin Mary is without the baby Jesus, as we are accustomed to see in the Christian icons, the Virgin Mary not being separated from her son, except some rare situa- 23 Y.

Or, as the Christians in the East do not use such icons of the Virgin Mary, there are Muslim printers that print only this type of images. The fasting dedicated to the Virgin Mary Older women in Egypt use to associate to the Coptic Christians in the fasting days preceding the feast of the Assumption.

Their fasting is not the Muslim one, but the Coptic Christian, abstaining from meat and dairy products and according to their rules. Pilgrimages to churches dedicated to the Mother of God Mary is one of the most honoured people in the history of Islam, most Muslims see her as one of the righteous women that have lived on earth, and a minority of them see her as a true prophetess. And when their prayers are answered, they return to church to thank her, leaving the hand- kerchief used previously to touch the holy objects in church or other gifts.

Muslim women see her as a model and are known to worship at Christian and Muslim shrines. Amira El-Azhary Sonbol. Syracuse, Syracuse University Press, , p. Canaan, Mohammedan Saints and Sanctuaries in Palestine, nota 2, pp. And because in these pil- grimages Christians, especially the Coptic Christians, commit the Holy Baptism, sometimes, a Muslim believer asks for his child to be baptized in the Christian tradition.

By , in Algeria, there was a mosque dedicated to Mary, called Masjid sayydat us Meriem. In Jerusalem, at the tomb of Virgin Mary in the Virgin Mary Ascension Church, along the Syrian and Armenian altars we can see, in the south-east angle, a niche in front of which the Muslims stop to pray.

In Ephesus, as we know, in d. Then he said to the disciple: Behold thy mother! And from that hour the disciple took her to his house. We can easily see that the places where the Mother of God lived or went through in her life troubled, became places of pilgrimage for the faithful Christians but also for Muslims, representing, at the same time, opportunities for encounter and dialogue for believers belonging to the two religious traditions.

Pallavicini, La Sura di Maria The Offerings to the Virgin Mary. The things of- fered can be incense, candles, money, and satin curtains bearing the name, carpets and gold jewellery. The animal is slaughtered and offered, a quarter to the church, and the rest is offered to acquaintances and relatives as a blessing.

These are just some aspects of the Theotokos in the social and religious life of the Muslims, which help us understand the degree of diffusion of the Marian phenomenon in a different religion.

Whenever the Muslims invoke her, they do it for her intercession for the cause of Islam, asking her to make Islam prevail in the world. Related Papers. By Jose Kuruvachira. By Yvonne Haddad.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Gospel According to Thomas, commonly shortened to the Gospel of Thomas, is a well preserved early Christian, non-canonical sayings-gospel which many scholars believe provides insight into the Christian Oral Tradition. It was discovered near Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in December , in one of a group of books known as the Nag Hammadi library. The Gospel of Thomas was found among a collection of fifty-two writings that included, in addition to an excerpt from Plato's Republic, gospels claiming to have been written by Jesus's disciple Philip. Scholars have speculated that the works were buried in response to a letter from Bishop Athanasius who for the first time declared a strict canon of Christian scripture. The Coptic language text, the second of seven contained in what modern-day scholars have designated as Codex II, is composed of sayings attributed to Jesus.

Pagina de pornire. Mattison's public domain translation of The Gospel of Thomas as published on Gospels. The Gospel of Thomas is an early Christian era non-canonical document containing a list of sayings and parables attributed to Jesus in a non-narrative form. Many scholars argue that the core of the document dates back to the earliest era of Christianity, CE, and thus that it offers important insights into the earliest history of Christianity. Today most students would agree that the Thomas Gospel has opened a new perspective on the first voice of the Christian tradition. Recent studies centered on GTh have led to a stark reappraisal of the forces and events forming "orthodoxy" during the second and third centuries.
