The Birth of Jesus (19:22 – 19:28)

The Birth of Jesus

[19:22] When she bore him, she isolated herself to a faraway place.
[19:23] The birth process came to her by the trunk of a palm tree. She said, “(I am so ashamed;) I wish I were dead before this happened, and completely forgotten.”
[19:24] (The infant) called her from beneath her, saying, “Do not grieve. Your Lord has provided you with a stream.
[19:25] “If you shake the trunk of this palm tree, it will drop ripe dates for you.*
[19:26] “Eat and drink, and be happy. When you see anyone, say, ‘I have made a vow of silence; I am not talking today to anyone.'”
[19:27] She came to her family, carrying him. They said, “O Mary, you have committed something that is totally unexpected.
[19:28] “O descendant of Aaron, your father was not a bad man, nor was your mother unchaste.”
*19:25 Thus, Jesus was born in late September or early October. This is when dates ripen in the Middle East to the point of falling off the tree.

It is interesting to think that the people at that time probably had no clue about how big of a worldly impact these events and the identity of Jesus was going to have on all humankind.  

What was the significance of Mary making a vow of silence?

[33:3] And put your trust in GOD. GOD suffices as an advocate. 

[33:48] Do not obey the disbelievers and the hypocrites, disregard their insults, and put your trust in GOD; GOD suffices as an advocate. 

God Supports the Believers

[8:26] Remember that you used to be few and oppressed, fearing that the people may snatch you, and He granted you a secure sanctuary, supported you with His victory, and provided you with good provisions, that you may be appreciative.

Why does it say O descendant of Aaron in 19:28?

Mary was an Amramite that were descendants of Aaron.

Mary

[66:12] Also Mary, the Amramite. She maintained her chastity, then we blew into her from our spirit. She believed in the words of her Lord and His scriptures; she was obedient. 

[76:7] They fulfill their pledges, and reverence a day that is extremely difficult.

[52:19] Eat and drink happily, in return for your works.

[22:28] They may seek commercial benefits, and they shall commemorate GOD’s name during the specified days for providing them with livestock. “Eat therefrom and feed the despondent and the poor.”

Jonah

[37:145] We had him thrown up into the desert, exhausted. [37:146] We had a tree of edible fruit grown for him.

Lots of examples in the Quran about trees:
Tree in the heart of hell
Olive, fig, pomegranate tree

Job 3:3
1 After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. 2 He said: 3 “May the day of my birth perish, and the night that said, ‘A boy is conceived!’ 4 That day—may it turn to darkness; may God above not care about it; may no light shine on it. 

It is awesome that from a tree buried in dirt in the desert produces dates that are so sweet
