The kuffar of Answering-Islam and WikiIslam are just the sort of mentally handicapped sickos who would say that.  With barely two brain cells to rub, what else can one expect from such folk when they loudly proclaimed that the Quran mixed up Virgin Maryam and Miriam?  But we will again prove them wrong.  Actually even most Islamophobes now realize and acknowledge that this is not a "mix up" and they admit their own folly in whipping up a needless confusion.

We have already written on this topic in sufficient detail.  Check the entire thread at the following link.

Virgin Mary (mother of Jesus, sister of Aaron) and Miriam (sister of Moses)

For the convenience of those too lazy to click the link, the post is pasted below:


By Sister Ruhi

Here is a clarification of a simple fact which some non-Muslim writers, who know little or nothing about the Quran, have confusedly misinterpreted.

I take the commentary to from the writings of Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall to simply and briefly unravel this unnecessary befuddlement.

Surah 4 ... "the family of Imran."  In Pickthall's commentary 'Imran' refers to the father of Prophet Moses (pbuh).  But its mention in the title of Surah 4 is in the generic sense for all Hebrew Prophets from Moses to John the Baptist and Jesus son of Virgin Mary.  This, with the mention of the mother of Mary as "the wife of Imran" in Verse 3:35 and words "sister of Aaron" addressed to Virgin Mary in Surah 19:28 have given rise to a charge of anachronism by critics like Muir and few other non-Muslim authors who claim that the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) confused Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus, with Miriam, the sister of Moses.

"(Remember) when the wife of 'Imran said: My Lord! I have vowed unto Thee that which is in my belly as a consecrated (offering). Accept it from me. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Hearer, the Knower!"  (3:35)

"Then she brought him to her own folk, carrying him. They said: O Mary! Thou hast come with an amazing thing.  O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a wicked man nor was thy mother a harlot."  (19:27-28).

This claim by those ignorant writers is thoroughly absurd because the whole of the Quran is against it.  Well-read and perceptive Muslims believe in the authority of the Quran, that the grandfather of Jesus son of Virgin Mary was named Imran, which may also have been the name of the father of Moses.  In Surah 19:28 where Virgin Mary is addressed as "sister of Aaron," they hold the ancestral sense t be the most probable one, while denying that there is any reason to suppose that the Virgin Mary had not a brother named Aaron.
