In Surah Al-e-Imran, verse 37, Allah says:
The word I'm asking about here is "rizq" (second line, right at the stop). According to the mufasireen, the tafseer of this ayah is two things:
- Maryam (alayhaa salam) had out-of-season fruits with her
- She had scrolls of knowledge with her
I understand the first source of tafseer: the word rizq in Arabic language means "provision," and can encompass meanings of wealth and food.
But what about the second meaning -- scrolls of knowledge? Where or how does this meaning derive from -- is it from the language? From a correlated source (a second ayah, or a hadith)?
