peace Hasan, Damon, all,

Damon, even if "shahru ramadana" does not mean "month of Ramadan" you did not state how this disproves a meaning of sawm/abstinence later on in the verses.

Background info: discussion on construction

Secondly, you ask why Mariam is undergoing sawm yet possibly eating/drinking, and made a statement. The word "sawm" basically means abstinence, it is not necessarily a fast of food/drink. In this case it seems to be an abstinence from speaking. Is making a statement of non-speech to let others know why one is not speaking classed as speech? Perhaps. Certainly it is use of word or words, but is it intensive verb form 2 ukallima? I think this point could be debated.
