ISAIAH Arabic Sha’ya’ شعياء
The name is not mentioned in the Qur’an, but al-Baizawi, the commentator, in remarking on Suratu ‘l-Mi’raj, xvii. 4: – “We decreed to the children of Isra’il in the Book, ‘Ye shall verily do evil in the earth twice,'” – says the two sins committed by the Israelites were first the murder of Sha’ya’ibn Amsiya (i.e. Isaiah, son of Amoz) or Armiya (i.e. Jeremiah); and the second, the murder of Zakaria and John the Baptist, and the intention of killing Jesus.
