 Salaam 'alaykum. Pls what is the historical difference between 'Imran the father of Prophet Musa, & the father of Maryam




All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

The interval between Imraan the father of Prophet Moosa (Moses), may Allah exalt his mention, and Imraan the father of Maryam (Mary), may Allah exalt her mention, was 1,800 years as mentioned by some interpreters of the Quran. However, we have not come across any evidence that proves it or disproves it.


Allah Knows best.
