Virgin Mary

            The story of Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) in the Noble Qur'an starts with the conception of his mother, Mary, when the wife of Imran, Mary's mother, vowed to dedicate her child to the service of God in the temple. This is mentioned in the following verses (Which is translated as follows):� when the wife of Imran said: O my Lord! I have vowed to You what (the child that) is in my womb to be dedicated for Your services (free from all worldly work; to serve Your place of worship), so accept this, from me. Verily, You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knowing. Then when she delivered her child [Maryam (Mary)], she said: O my Lord! I have delivered a female child - and Allah knew better what she delivered - and the male is not like the female, and I have named her Maryam (Mary), and I seek refuge with You (Allah) for her and for her offspring from Shaitan (Satan), the outcast. So her Lord (Allah) accepted her with goodly acceptance, He made her grow in a good manner and put her under the care of Zakariya (Zachariya). Every time he entered Al-Mihrab (a praying place or private room) to (visit) her, he found her supplied with sustenance. He said: O Maryam (Mary)! from where have you got this? She said: This is from Allah Verily, Allah provides sustenance to whom He wills, without limit� [Chapter 3: verses 35-37].

            The Noble Qur'an stated also that the Almighty Allah chose Mary, purified her and raised her above all other women of the world. This is mentioned in the following verses (Which is translated as follows):� And when the angels said: O Maryam (Mary)! Verily, Allah has chosen you, purified you (from polytheism and disbelief), and chosen you above the women of the 'Alamin (Mankind and Jinns) (of her lifetime). O Mary! Submit yourself with obedience to your Lord (Allah, by worshipping none but Him Alone) and prostrate yourself, and Irkai (bow down etc) along with Ar-Raki'un (those who bow down etc)� [Chapter 3: verses 42-43].
