Miraculous Speech as a Newborn Child.
The Quran has related this miracle of Jesus, to its readers in a highly
eloquent and attractive manner, saying :
"So she (Maryam (Mary) pointed to the child. They said, "How
can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?" He (Jesus) said, "I am
indeed a servant of Allah, He has gifted me with the book and made me a
prophet and made me blessed where ever I may be and He has enjoinedupon
me prayers and charity as long as I live, and made me kind to my mother
and not overbearing and miserable." 19/29-32
Imam Qurtubi has stated, "Very soon after his birth, Jesus spoke words
of wisdom to the people and forced them to accept him as a sign of the
power of God. Jesus, through his talk in infancy, freed his mother from
all blasphemies and allegations."
