An Interesting View on Maryam

Marisa produced some tafseer magic a few days ago when she said: Perhaps “ibn” doesn’t mean “son”.      Maybe she was wondering how she could have a protege, since no person had “touched/influenced” her.

This is exactly how im feeling about the story of maryam and isa. I do take it on a literal dimension (it’s difficult not to, if I’m honest) but the lessons I extract from this is one of spiritual revolution leading to transformation of self and society. Marisa’s comment probably helped bring that view one step closer. Thanks Mar!
