Muhammad peace be upon him said regarding this Noble Verse:
Mughira b. Shu’ba reported: “When I came to Najran, they (the Christians of Najran) asked me: You read “O sister of Harun (Aaron)” (i. e. Mary) in the Qur’an, whereas Moses was born much before Jesus. When I came back to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) I asked him about that, whereupon he said: The (people of the old age) used to give names (to their persons) after the names of Apostles and pious persons who had gone before them. (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book on General Behaviour (Kitab Al-Adab), Book 025, Number 5326)”
We clearly see from the Saying (Hadith) of our beloved Prophet, this issue was brought to him before and he clearly responded to it. The false claim made against our Prophet about him meaning that Mary was a biological sister of Aaron is clearly refuted.
The People of Isreal used to call people by either their last names, or by adding words such as you “Son of…” or “Brother of….” or “Sister of….” When they called people “O Son of….” they didn’t mean for that person to be the actual biological son of the person whom they used his name.
The other person could be a simply in the family tree or a last name.
When Jesus was called “Jesus the son of David” for instance, the Jews didn’t mean to call Jesus the actual biological son of David. Similarily, when they called Mary “O sister of Aaron”, they meant to call her sister of Aaron in faith !. Not the actual biological sister of Aaron..
👉👉👉So When the Jews called Mary ‘O sister of Aaron..’, then meant it to be Sister of Aaron in faith only and not a biological sister
Jews meant to call in Surat Maryam so because she was a Prophet and Prophet Muhammed says We prophets are brothers to one another
Other scholars who says no she was a spiritual righteous person only say she is Harun’s brother in Islam because Harun is known to Jews with His piety unlike Moses they had always accused him of fornication but Allah defended Him as in verse
(33:69) O you who have believed, be not like those who abused Moses; then Allah cleared him of what they said. And he, in the sight of Allah, was distinguished.
