Someone please help. I was reading the english translation of the chapter in the Quran called Surah Maryam (named after Mary the mother of Jesus) and I found it weird that they mention Mary to be "the sister of Aaron". We know that Aaron and Moses lived before Mary so why would the Quran mention her as that? I read online somewhere that apparently someone said Muhammad (pbuh) had got confused between Miriam who in the Bible is the sister of Moses and Aaron , whose father was named Amran (Imran in Arabic) and Mary the mother of Jesus. Someone please explain I am having doubts about the religion and my faith now

The Quran doesn't make mention of Mary having a brother and neither does the Bible and Torah. We know the story from Islamic perspective that Imran (as) and the wife Imran (as) struggled to have a child (that what I was taught) and that Imran (as) passed away before the wife of Imran (as) could announce her pregnancy or something like that. She maid a vow that she would raise this child up in a place of worship thinking it would be a boy but then found it was a girl called her Mary or Maryam and kept her vow. She appointed a guardian Zechariah or Zakariya (pbuh) to help Mary. So if Mary had a brother why would not her mother appoint him instead of Zechariah (pbuh)? I am ber confused
