[Eng/Ind] Nabi Zakariyya Wali Maryam

“So her Lord accepted her with good acceptance and caused her to grow in a good manner and put her in the care of Zakariyya”

Quran Al Imran : 37

Zakariyya A.S was a Prophet & Messenger of Bani Israel.

He is a direct descendant of Dawood A.S and Sulaiman A.S.

Zakariya A.S was constantly in a state of gratitude to Allah,& was intensely humble in his demeanour.

Imran had a pious wife, & her sister was married to Zakariya A.S

The wife of Imran, gave birth to Maryam A.S,& she pledged to dedicate Maryam A.S towards pure servitude to Allah.

Shortly after the birth of Maryam A.S or some say before her birth, her father, Imran, passed away.

This sparked off a dispute within Bani Israel on her guardianship.

Zakariya A.S should have been the obvious choice.

He was her uncle & moreover, was a Prophet whose moral character & piety were beyond question.

No one else had his merit of character.

But Bani Israel disputed this choice, as they wanted the prestige of raising Imran’s daughter.

Zakariya A.S kept silent & maintained his good manner.

The people eventually agreed that they should cast lots to decide the matter.

All the candidates wrote down their names on pens (or wooden writing instruments), and put them in a container.

A child was sent to pick one of the pens at random.

The pen that was selected bore Zakariya’s A.S name.

Dissatisfied at the outcome, some of them asked for the cast to be repeated.

The cast was repeated..

This time, the claimants put all their pens in the river.

It was decided that, The pen that would swim against the current would win the guardianship.

Again, it was the pen of Zakariya A.S that won.

Still stubborn and quarrelsome, they demanded a third round.

This time, they decided that whichever pen swam with the current would win the cast.

Yet again, it was only Zakariya’s A.S pen that differed from the rest, swimming with the current while the other pens drifted upstream.

Observe the power of Allah: “people may plot and plan, but what is written will take place.”

“And you were not with them when they cast their pens as to which of them should be responsible for Maryam. Nor were you with them when they disputed.”

Quran Al Imran verse 44

Thus Bani Israel had no choice but to acknowledge that Zakariya A.S was the undisputed champion and was entitled to assume the guardianship of Maryam A.S.

Thus the Guardianship of Maryam A.S was given to Zakariyya A.S.

Maryam A.S grew up as a righteous woman.

From her childhood, she was in a state of prayer, positioned in seclusion away from the people.

“So her Lord accepted her with good acceptance and caused her to grow in a good manner & put her in the care of Zakariyya”

Quran Al Imran verse 37

Zakariyya A.S had a son named as Yahya.

Yahya A.S was also a Prophet.

This son had the honour of being named by Allah himself.

“Maka Dia (Allah) menerimanya dengan penerimaan yang baik, membesarkannya dengan pertumbuhan yang baik dan menyerahkan pemeliharaannya kepada Zakaria”

Quran Al Imran ayat 37

Zakariyya adalah seorang Nabi & Utusan Bani Israel.

Dia adalah keturunan langsung dari Daud dan Sulaiman.

Nabi Zakariya selalu bersyukur kepada Allah, & sangat rendah hati dalam sikapnya.

Imran memiliki istri yang saleh, & adiknya menikah dengan Nabi Zakariya.

Istri Imran, melahirkan Maryam AS, & dia berjanji untuk mendedikasikan Maryam AS menuju pengabdian murni kepada Allah.

Sesaat setelah kelahiran Maryam atau ada yang mengatakan sebelum kelahirannya, ayahnya, Imran, meninggal dunia.

Ini memicu perselisihan di dalam Bani Israel tentang perwaliannya

Zakariya AS seharusnya menjadi pilihan yang jelas.

Dia adalah pamannya & terlebih lagi, adalah seorang Nabi yang karakter moral & kesalehannya tidak dapat dipertanyakan.

Tidak ada orang lain yang memiliki karakter yang pantas.

Tetapi Bani Israel membantah pilihan ini, karena mereka menginginkan gengsi membesarkan putri Imran.

Nabi Zakariya tetap diam & menjaga kelakuannya yang baik.

Orang-orang akhirnya setuju bahwa mereka harus melempar undi untuk memutuskan masalah tersebut.

Semua kandidat menuliskan namanya di pulpen (atau alat tulis kayu), dan menaruhnya di wadah.

Seorang anak dikirim untuk mengambil salah satu pena secara acak.

Pena yang dipilih bertuliskan nama Nabi Zakariya.

Tidak puas dengan hasilnya, beberapa dari mereka meminta diulang.

Pengundian diulang..

Kali ini, penggugat meletakkan semua kandangnya di sungai.

Diputuskan bahwa, Pena yang akan berenang melawan arus akan memenangkan perwalian.

Sekali lagi, pena Zakariya AS-lah yang menang.

Masih keras kepala dan suka bertengkar, mereka menuntut putaran ketiga.

Kali ini, mereka memutuskan bahwa pena yang berenang dengan arus akan memenangkan pemeran.

Sekali lagi, hanya pena Nabi Zakariya yang berbeda dari yang lain, berenang mengikuti arus sementara pena lainnya melayang ke hulu.

Amati kekuatan Allah: “orang boleh merencanakan dan merencanakan, tetapi apa yang tertulis akan terjadi.”

“padahal engkau tidak bersama mereka ketika mereka melemparkan pena mereka (untuk mengundi) siapa di antara mereka yang akan memelihara Maryam. Dan engkau pun tidak bersama mereka ketika mereka bertengkar”

Quran Al Imran ayat 44

Dengan demikian Bani Israel tidak punya pilihan selain mengakui bahwa Nabi Zakariya adalah juara yang tidak perlu dipersoalkan dan berhak untuk mengambil alih perwalian Maryam.

Dengan demikian Perwalian Maryam diberikan kepada Zakariyya.

Maryam tumbuh sebagai wanita yang saleh.

Sejak masa kanak-kanak, dia berada dalam kondisi berdoa, diposisikan di pengasingan jauh dari orang-orang.

“Jadi Tuhannya menerimanya dengan penerimaan yang baik dan menyebabkan dia tumbuh dalam perilaku yang baik & menempatkannya dalam perawatan Zakariyya”

Quran Al Imran ayat 37

Nabi Zakariyya memiliki seorang putra bernama Yahya.

Yahya juga seorang Nabi.

Putra Nabi Zakariyya ini mendapat kehormatan dinamai oleh Allah sendiri
