24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

Maryam with Al-Masih before the People, Their Rejection of Her and His Reply to Them

Allah, the Exalted tells;

فَأَتَتْ بِهِ قَوْمَهَا تَحْمِلُهُ

Then she brought him to her people, carrying him.

Allah, the Exalted, informs of Maryam's situation when she was commanded to fast that day and not to speak to any human being. For verily, her affair would be taken care of and her proof would be established. Thus, she accepted the command of Allah and she readily received His decree. She took her child and brought him to her people, carrying him. When they saw her like this they made a big deal about her situation and they sternly protested against of it, and

قَالُوا يَا مَرْيَمُ لَقَدْ جِيْتِ شَيْيًا فَرِيًّا



They said;"O Mary! Indeed you have brought a thing Fariy."
Fariy means a mighty thing.

This was said by Mujahid, Qatadah, As-Suddi and others.

Ibn Abi Hatim reported from Nawf Al-Bikali that he said,

"Her people went out searching for her, she was from a family that was blessed with Prophethood and nobility. However, they could not find any trace of her. They came across a cow herder and they asked him, `Have you seen a girl whose description is such and such!'

He replied, `No, but tonight I saw my cows doing something that I've never seen them do before.'

They asked, `What did you see?'

He said, `Tonight I saw them prostrating in the direction of that valley."'

Abdullah bin Ziyad said (adding to the narration),

"I memorized from Sayyar that he (the cattle herder) said,

`I saw a radiant light."'

So they went towards the direction that he told him, and Maryam was coming towards them from that direction. When she saw them she sat down and she was holding her child in her lap. They came towards her until they were standing over her.

قَالُوا يَا مَرْيَمُ لَقَدْ جِيْتِ شَيْيًا فَرِيًّا


They said;"O Mary! Indeed you have brought a mighty thing (Fariy)."

This means it was a mighty thing that she had brought
