AARON Arabic Harun هارون
Aaron is the brother of Moses and along with him is considered to be a prophet of Allah. He is noted in the Qur’an for helping to lead the exodus of the Jews out of Egypt. Aaron was very well-spoken, and per Moses’ request to God became his spokesman. When Aaron dies in the wilderness, Moses his accused by his people of murdering him. God instructs Moses to take his people to Aaron’s grave site. Aaron is then revived from the dead to tell the people that he had died of natural causes.  The account given of Aaron in the Qur’an will be found in the article on Moses. In Surah xix. 29, the Virgin Mary is addressed as “the Sister of Aaron.” [Mary, Moses.]
