PROPHETESSES
It is said that only three women have been prophetesses: Sarah, the mother of Moses, and Mary, the daughter of ‘Imran; for Sarah received by revelation the news of Isaac’s birth, the birth of Moses was divinely communicated to his mother, and Mary received from an angel the happy tidings of the birth of Jesus. (See Hist. of Temple of Jerusalem, translated from the Arabic.)
