One day the wife of Imran made a vow to Allah, The Exalted;
[When the wife of Imran said, I make a vow to You for what is in my womb to remain purely in your service. Therefore accept this from me; no doubt, you alone are hearing, knowing.]
(Holy Quran, Chapter: 3, Verse:35)
A few days later, she gave birth to a baby girl names Maryam. Because she vowed to Allah to submit her child purely to Allah’s service, she was expecting a boy, but was surprised to see a girl. She said to Allah, The Exalted:
[Then when she gave birth to her, she said, O my Lord I have given birth to a female. And Allah knows well whatever she had giver birth to, and that male whom she demanded was not like this female and I have named her Mary [Maryam], and I gave her and her off-spring under your protection from Satan the
(Holy Quran, Chapter: 3, Verse:36)
But she fulfilled her promise to Allah, The Exalted, and He accepted her offering.
[Therefore her Lord accepted her graciously…]

When Maryam was brought to Quds, Allah, The Exalted, had Prophet Zakaria (Peace be upon him) be her guardian.
[And made her to grow in puroty and beauty and gave her under the guardianship of Zakaria…]
(Holy Quran, Chapter: 3, Verse:37)
She lived there in Quds and prayed to Allah, The Exalted.
. One day, some angels came to her and said
[And when the angels said, O Mary, verily Allah has chosen you and purified well and today was chosen you from amongst the women of all worlds. O Mary! Stand before your Lord humbly and prostrate for Him and bow down with those who bow down.]
(Holy Quran, Chapter: 3, Verses: 42-43)
The angels also informed her that she was soon to have a son.
[And remember when the angels said to Mary, O Mary! Allah gives you glad tidings of a word from Him; whose name is Masih, Isa son of Mary, he shall be dignified in the world and the Hereafter and of those nearest Allah. And he shall talk to the people in the cradle and in the ripe age (maturity) and shall be of the righteous.]
(Holy Quran, Chapter: 3, Verses: 45-46)
But how can I have a son?,” Maryam asked. “I have no husband.
[She said O my Lord! From where I shall have a son, no person has touched me. He said, Allah creates in such a way that He pleases. When He wants to decree anything, all he has to say is ‘Be’ and it is.]
( (Holy Quran, Chapter: 28, Verse: 47
Allah, The Exalted, said he would send him to the children of Israel as a messenger.
[And Allah will teach him the book and wisdom and the Taurat and Injeel. And he shall be a Messenger towards the children of Israel saying this, I have brought to you a sign from your Lord, that I make a form out of clay like a bird, and breathe into it and it becomes a bird by Allah’ permission, And I heal those who born blined and the lepers, and I make the dead alive by the command of Allah, and I declare to you what you eat, and what you store in your houses. Surely in these things there is a great sign for you if you believe.]
(Holy Quran, Chapter: 3, Verses: 48-49)
When she was about to deliver the baby, she took shelter under a palm-tree. She was very embarrassed with this condition as Allah, The Almighty says:
[Then the pains of child birth brought her to the trunk of a palm-tree. She said, Oh would I have died
before this and had become a thing forgotten, lost.]
(Holy Quran, Chapter: 19, Verse: 23)
An angel assured her of Allah’s blessings and told her to shake the palm-tree to get food and that water had been arranged for her as well.
[Then one called to her from underneath it , grieve not undoubtedly, your Lord has caused to flow a rivulet below you. And shake towards yourself holding the trunk of the palm-tree, fresh and ripe dates will come upon you. Then eat and drink and cool your eyes….]
( (Holy Quran, Chapter: 19, Verses: 24-26
Allah, The Exalted, knew the circumstances she would have to face when she returned to her people, so He ordered her not to speak and if anyone asked a question about this to just point to the child.
…..[Then if you see any man, then say, I have vowed a fast to the most Affectionate, so I shall not speak to anyone today.]
( (Holy Quran, Chapter: 19, Verse: 26
Later she returned to her family who were very curious about the child and asked her about him.
[Then she brought him to her people taking in her lap. They said, no doubt you have committed a very vile thing. ]
( (Holy Quran, Chapter: 19, Verse: 27
But she did not answer then and just pointed to the child, as Allah , The Exalted, had commanded her. “How can we ask a child who is still in the cradle?” they exclaimed.
[Then Maryam pointed towards the child, they said, how can we talk to him who is a baby in the
( (Holy Quran, Chapter: 19, Verse: 29
With the blessings of Allah, The Exalted, just then, the child started to speak in a clear voice.
[The baby said, I am indeed a bondman of Allah, He gave me the book and made me the communicator of unseen news (a prophet). And He made me blessed wherever I may be and enjoined on me prayer and poor dues (zakat) as long as I live. And He made me dutiful to my mother and not made me vigorous, unfortunate. So peace be on me the day I was born and the day I die and the day I shall be raised alive.]
(Holy Quran, Chapter:19, Verses: 30-33)
Prophet Isa (Peace be upon him) stated clearly that he was a prophet of Allah, The Exalted, and that he was neither the God nor His son. But some people named him god. Allah has falsified this absurd belief:
[Undoubtedly, they have become infidels who said, that Allah is the Masih, son of Maryam…..]
( (Holy Quran, Chapter: 5, Verse:17
Some people said that Allah is the father of Masih (Peace be upon him). But deniying this wrong-belief Allah, The Exalted, said:
[It is not befitting to Allah that he should take to Himself anyone as a son. Holy is He….]
(Holy Quran, Chapter:19, Verse:35)
And Prophet Isa (Peace be upon him) himself said to
his followers inviting them to accept Allah, The Almighty as the only Lord.
[And Isa said, undoubtedly Allah is my Lord and your Lord, then worship him. This path is straight.]
((Holy Quran, Chapter:19, Verse:36
And he also said:
[And Masih said, O children of Israel! Worship Allah, my lord and your lord undoubtedly, whoever associates anyone with Allah, then He will forbid him paradise and his abode will be hell. And there will be no helper of the unjust.]
(Holy Quran, Chapter: 5, Verse:72)
