Prophet Isa and Maryam (a.s)

[3:35] When a woman of Imran said: My Lord! Surely I vow to Thee what is in my womb, to be devoted (to Thy service); accept therefore from me, surely Thou art the Hearing, the Knowing.

[3:36] So when she brought forth, she said: My Lord! Surely I have brought it forth a female, and Allah knew best what she brought forth, and the male is not like the female, and I have named it Maryam, and I commend her and her offspring into Thy protection from the accursed Shaitan.

[3:37] So her Lord accepted her with a good acceptance and made her grow up a good growing, and gave her into the charge of Zakariya; whenever Zakariya entered the sanctuary to (see) her, he found with her food. He said: O Maryam! Whence comes this to you? She said: It is from Allah. Surely Allah gives to whom He pleases without measure.

[3:42] And when the angels said: O Maryam! Surely Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of of the world.

[3:43] O Maryam! Keep to obedience to your Lord and humble yourself, and bow down with those who bow.

[3:44] This is of the announcements relating to the unseen which We reveal to you; and you were not with them when they cast their pens (to decide) which of them should have Maryam in his charge, and you were not with them when they contended one with another.

[3:45] When the angels said: O Maryam, surely Allah gives you good news with a Word from Him (of one) whose name is the Messiah, Isa son of Maryam, worthy of regard in this world and the hereafter and of those who are made near (to Allah).

[3:46] And he shall speak to the people when in the cradle and when of old age, and (he shall be) one of the good ones.

[3:47] She said: My Lord! When shall there be a son (born) to I me, and man has not touched me? He said: Even so, Allah creates what He pleases; when He has decreed a matter, He only says to it, be, and it is.

[3:48] And He will teach him the Book and the wisdom and the Taurat and the Injeel.

[3:49] And (make him) a messenger to the children of Israel: That I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that I determine for you out of dust like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird with Allah's permission and I heal the blind and the leprous, and bring the dead to life with Allah's permission and I inform you of what you should eat and what you should store in your houses; most surely there is a sign in this for you, if you are believers.

[3:50] And a verifier of that which is before me of the Taurat and that I may allow you part of that which has been forbidden to you, and I have come to you with a sign from your Lord therefore be careful of (your duty to) Allah and obey me.

[3:51] Surely Allah is my Lord and your Lord, therefore serve Him; this is the right path.

[3:52] But when Isa perceived unbelief on their part, he said Who will be my helpers in Allah's way? The disciples said: We are helpers (in the way) of Allah: We believe in Allah and bear witness that we are submitting ones.

[3:53] Our Lord! We believe in what Thou hast revealed and we follow the messenger, so write us down with those who bear witness.

[3:54] And they planned and Allah (also) planned, and Allah is the best of planners.

[3:55] And when Allah said: O Isa, I am going to terminate the period of your stay (on earth) and cause you to ascend unto Me and purify you of those who disbelieve and make those who follow you above those who disbelieve to the day of resurrection; then to Me shall be your re- turn, so l will decide between you concerning that in which you differed.

[3:59] Surely the likeness of Isa is with Allah as the likeness of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him, Be, and he was.

[4:157] And their saying: Surely we have killed the Messiah, Isa son of Maryam, the messenger of Allah; and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and they killed him not for sure.

[4:158] Nay! Allah took him up to Himself; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.

[4:159] And there is not one of the followers of the Book but most certainly believes in this before his death, and on the day of resurrection he (Isa) shall be a witness against them.

[4:172] The Messiah does by no means disdain that he should be a servant of Allah, nor do the angels who are near to Him, and whoever disdains His service and is proud, He will gather them all together to Himself.

[5:17] Certainly they disbelieve who say: Surely, Allah, He is the Messiah, son of Maryam. Say: Who then could control anything as against Allah when He wished to destroy the Messiah son of Maryam and his mother and all those on the earth? And Allah's is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and what is between them; He creates what He pleases; and Allah has power over all things,

[5:46] And We sent after them in their footsteps Isa, son of Maryam, verifying what was before him of the Taurat and We gave him the Injeel in which was guidance and light, and verifying what was before it of Taurat and a guidance and an admonition for those who guard (against evil).

[5:72] Certainly they disbelieve who say: Surely Allah, He is the Messiah, son of Maryam; and the Messiah said: O Children of Israel! Serve Allah, my Lord and your Lord. Surely whoever associates (others) with Allah, then Allah has forbidden to him the garden, and his abode is the fire; and there shall be no helpers for the unjust.

[5:73] Certainly they disbelieve who say: Surely Allah is the third (person) of the three; and there is no god but the one Allah, and if they desist not from what they say, a painful chastisement shall befall those among them who disbelieve.

[5:75] The Messiah, son of Maryam is but a messenger; messengers before him have indeed passed away; and his mother was a truthful wo- man; they both used to eat food. See how We make the communications clear to them, then behold, how they are turned away.

[5:110] When Allah will say: O Isa son of Maryam! Remember My favor on you and on your mother, when I strengthened you I with the holy Spirit, you spoke to the people in the cradle and I when of old age, and when I taught you the Book and the wisdom and the Taurat and the Injeel; and when you determined out of clay a thing like the form of a bird by My permission, then you breathed into it and it became a bird by My permission, and you healed the blind and the leprous by My permission; and when you brought forth the dead by My permission; and when I withheld the children of Israel from you when you came to them with clear arguments, but those who disbelieved among them said: This is nothing but clear enchantment.

[5:111] And when I revealed to the disciples, saying, Believe in Me and My messenger, they said: We believe and bear witness that we submit (ourselves).

[5:112] When the disciples said: O Isa son of Maryam! Will your Lord consent to send down to us food from heaven? He said: Be careful of (your duty to) Allah if you are believers.

[5:113] They said: We desire that we should eat of it and that our hearts should be at rest, and that we may know that you have indeed spoken the truth to us and that we may be of the witnesses to it.

[5:114] Isa the son of Maryam said: O Allah, our Lord! send i down to us food from heaven which should be to us an ever-recurring happiness, to the first of us and to the last of us, and a sign from Thee, and grant us means of subsistence, and Thou art the best of the Providers.

[5:115] Allah said: Surely I will send it down to you, but whoever shall disbelieve afterwards from among you, surely I will chastise him with a chastisement with which I will not chastise, anyone among the nations.

[5:116] And when Allah will say: O Isa son of Maryam! did you say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allah he will say: Glory be to Thee, it did not befit me that I should say what I had no right to (say); if I had said it, Thou wouldst indeed have known it; Thou knows what is in my mind, and I do not know what is in Thy mind, surely Thou art the great Knower of the unseen things.

[5:117] I did not say to them aught save what Thou didst enjoin me with: That serve Allah, my Lord and your Lord, and I was a witness of them so long as I was among them, but when Thou didst cause me to die, Thou wert the watcher over them, and Thou art witness of all things.

[5:118] If Thou shouldst chastise them, then surely they are Thy servants; and if Thou shouldst forgive them, then surely Thou art the Mighty, the Wise.

[19:16] And mention Maryam in the Book when she drew aside from her family to an eastern place;

[19:17] So she took a veil (to screen herself) from them; then We sent to her Our spirit, and there appeared to her a well-made man.

[19:18] She said: Surely I fly for refuge from you to the Beneficent Allah, if you are one guarding (against evil).

[19:19] He said: I am only a messenger of your Lord: That I will give you a pure boy.

[19:20] She said: When shall I have a boy and no mortal has yet touched me, nor have I been unchaste?

[19:21] He said: Even so; your Lord says: It is easy to Me: and that We may make him a sign to men and a mercy from Us, and it is a matter which has been decreed.

[19:22] So she conceived him; then withdrew herself with him to a remote place.

[19:23] And the throes (of childbirth) compelled her to betake herself to the trunk of a palm tree. She said: Oh, would that I had died before this, and had been a thing quite forgotten!

[19:24] Then (the child) called out to her from beneath her: Grieve not, surely your Lord has made a stream to flow beneath you;

[19:25] And shake towards you the trunk of the palm tree, it will drop on you fresh ripe dates:

[19:26] So eat and drink and refresh the eye. Then if you see any mortal, say: Surely I have vowed a fast to the Beneficent Allah, so I shall not speak to any man today.

[19:27] And she came to her people with him, carrying him (with her).

They said: O Maryam! Surely you have done a strange thing.

[19:28] O sister of Haroun! Your father was not a bad man, nor, was your mother an unchaste woman.

[19:29] But she pointed to him. They said: How should we speak to one who was a child in the cradle?

[19:30] He said: Surely I am a servant of Allah; He has given me the Book and made me a prophet;

[19:31] And He has made me blessed wherever I may be, and He has enjoined on me prayer and poor-rate so long as I live;

[19:32] And dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me insolent, unblessed;

[19:33] And peace on me on the day I was born, and on the day I die, and on the day I am raised to life.

[19:34] Such is Isa, son of Maryam; (this is) the saying of truth about which they dispute.

[21:91] And she (Maryam) who guarded her chastity, so We breathed into her of Our inspiration and made her and her son a sign for the nations.

[23:50] And We made the son of Maryam and his mother a sign, and We gave them a shelter on a lofty ground having meadows and springs.

[36:13] And set out to them an example of the people of the town (Greek city of Antioch founded by Selcucus Nicator, one of the successors of Alexander, in about 300 B.C), when the messengers (of Isa) came to it.

[36:14] When We sent to them two, they rejected both of them, then We strengthened (them) with a third, so they said: Surely we are messengers to you.

[36:15] They said: You are naught but mortals like ourselves, nor has the Beneficent Allah revealed anything; you only lie.

[36:16] They said: Our Lord knows that we are most surely messengers to you.

[36:17] And nothing devolves on us but a clear deliverance (of the message).

[36:18] They said: Surely we augur evil from you (messengers); if you do not desist, we will certainly stone you, and there shall certainly afflict you a painful chastisement from us.

[36:19] They said: Your evil fortune is with you; what! if you are reminded! Nay, you are an extravagant people.

[36:20] And from the remote part of the city there came a man (Habib al Najjar, known as the Mumin of ali Yasin) running, he said: O my people! Follow the messengers;

[36:21] Follow him who does not ask you for reward, and they are the followers of the right course;

[36:22] And what reason have I that I should not serve Him Who brought me into existence? And to Him you shall be brought back;

[36:23] What! Shall I take besides Him gods whose intercession, If the Beneficent Allah should desire to afflict me with a harm, shall not avail me aught, nor shall they be able to deliver me?

[36:24] In that case I shall most surely be in clear error:

[36:25] Surely I believe in your Lord, therefore hear me.

[36:26] It was said: Enter the garden. He said: O would that my people had known

[36:27] Of that on account of which my Lord has forgiven me and made me of the honored ones!

[36:28] And We did not send down upon his people after him any hosts from heaven, nor do We ever send down.

[36:29] It was naught but a single cry (earthquake), and lo! They (disbelievers) were still.

[43:57] And when a description of the son of Maryam is given, lo! your people raise a clamor thereat.

[43:58] And they say: Are our gods better, or is he? They do not set it forth to you save by way of disputation; nay, they are a contentious people.

[43:59] He was naught but a servant on whom We bestowed favor, and We made him an example for the children of Israel.

[43:60] And if We please, We could make among you angels to be successors in the land.

[43:61] And most surely it is a knowledge of the hour, therefore have no doubt about it and follow me: this is the right path.

[43:63] And when Isa came with clear arguments he said: I have come to you indeed with wisdom, and that I may make clear to you part of what you differ in; so be careful of (your duty to) Allah and obey me:

[43:64] Surely Allah is my Lord and your Lord, therefore serve Him; this is the right path:

[43:65] But parties from among them differed, so woe to those who were unjust because of the chastisement of a painful day.

[57:27] Then We made Our messengers to follow in their footsteps, and We sent Isa son of Maryam afterwards, and We gave him the Injeel, and We put in the hearts of those who followed him kindness and mercy; and (as for) mockery, they innovated it, We did not prescribe it to them, only to seek Allah's pleasure, but they did not observe it with its due observance; so We gave to those of them who believed their re- ward, and most of them are transgressors.

[61:6] And when Isa son of Maryam said: O children of Israel! Surely I am the messenger of Allah to you, verifying that which is before me of the Taurat and giving the good news of an Messenger who will come after me, his name being Ahmad, but when he came to them with clear arguments they said: This is clear magic.

[61:14] O you who believe! Be helpers (in the cause) of Allah, as Isa son of Maryam said to (his) disciples: Who are my helpers in the cause of Allah? The disciples said: We are helpers (in the cause) of Allah. So a party of the children of Israel believed and another party disbelieved; then We aided those who believed against their enemy, and they became uppermost.

[66:12] And Maryam, the daughter of Imran, who guarded her chastity, so We breathed into her of Our inspiration and she accepted the truth of the words of her Lord and His books, and she was of, the obedient ones.
