* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ وَجَعَلْنَا ٱبْنَ مَرْيَمَ وَأُمَّهُ آيَةً وَآوَيْنَاهُمَآ إِلَىٰ رَبْوَةٍ ذَاتِ قَرَارٍ وَمَعِينٍ }

And We made the son of Mary Jesus and his mother a sign — He did not say ‘two signs’ because the same sign is in both of them his being born without his mother’s having a male spouse. And We gave them refuge on a height rabwa a highland — in this case either the Holy House of Jerusalem Damascus or Palestine all of which are alternative opinions — level dhāt qarār an flat high- land on which its inhabitants are able to settle yastaqirru and watered by springs running water over ground which the eyes can see.
