JEREMIAH Arabic Armiya. جارميا
The prophet is not mentioned in the Qur’an, but Muslim historians say he was contemporary with Ma’add, the son of ‘Adnan, the renowned ancestor of Muhammad. The Katibu ‘l-Waqidi says: “God watched over ‘Adnan’s son Ma’add, who was by the command of the Lord taken by Armiya and Abrakha (Jeremiah and Baruch) into the land of Harram and nurtured safely.” According to the Ghiyasu ‘l-Lughah, he is the same as al-Khizr.
