On whether Maryam (as) married


Assalamualaikum Shaykh,

Did Maryam (as) married Joseph the carpenter, had children and have living descendants? Thank you.


Waalaykumussalam warahmatullah,
There is no mention of marriage to my knowledge but al-Tha`labi cites from Wahb b. Munabbih (who relates from the Israelites) that Yusuf al-Najjar (Joseph the carpenter) took her to Egypt. As for the children other than `Isa their traditions cite that they were from a previous marriage, not borne by Maryam, upon them peace.
