Tree of MARYAM and stream of jabra’eel

Sayyiduna ‘Isa  was born to Sayyidatuna Maryam  without father. When the time of birth arrived, Sayyidatuna Maryam  went far from people and sat isolated beneath a dry date palm-tree. Under the very same tree, Sayyiduna ‘Isa was born. As Sayyiduna ‘Isa  was born from an unmarried mother, Sayyidatuna Maryam was therefore in a state of great worry and much grief and was not returning to her village due to the fear of being blamed by the people. She was sitting in  such a deserted place under a dry date palm-tree where there was nothing to drink or eat. Suddenly, Sayyiduna Jibra ‘eel descended and made a stream of water emerge by casting his heel on the earth. All of a sudden, the dry date palm-tree rejuvenated and yielded fruit. Then Sayyiduna Jibra ‘eel  spoke to Sayyidatuna Maryam in the following manner:
 (The angel) therefore called her from underneath (the date-tree); that, ‘Do not grieve, undoubtedly your Lord has made a stream flow below you. And grab the trunk of the date-tree and shake it towards you; fresh ripe dates will fall upon you. So eat and drink and keep your eyes cool.’
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 16, Surah Maryam, Ayah 24-26)
A dry tree’s yielding of fruit and the sudden emergence of a stream are undoubtedly the miraculous marvels of Sayyidatuna Maryam .
Moral: In the previous pages, you have read that when Sayyidatuna Maryam was a young girl and used to pray in the arch of Bayt-ul- Muqaddas, she would get out of season fruits without any effort. Whereas after the birth of Sayyiduna ‘Isa, no doubt she did receive ripened dates, but it was commanded by Allah to shake the tree in order to get the dates. The lesson we learn here is that until a person is single, he is blessed with provisions even without any efforts and but when a person bears children, it becomes necessary for him  to make effort for livelihood. This is evident from Sayyidatuna Maryam  that until she was alone, she was blessed with the provision of fruits in her arch of worship. However, when her child Sayyiduna ‘Isa was born, then it was commanded by Allah to shake the date palm-tree and thus make some effort to get the dates.
