name of God, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful
(The Family of Imran)
Chapter 3, Verses 42 - 51
42. And remember when the angels said:
"O Maryam (Mary)! Verily, Allah (God) has chosen you, purified you,
and chosen you above the women of all nations.
43. "O Mary! Submit yourself with
obedience to your Lord and prostrate yourself, and bow down in prayer with those who bow
44. This is part of the news of the
Unseen which We reveal to you (O Muhammad!) by inspiration. You were not with them when
they cast lots with their pens as to which of them should be charged with the care of
Mary; nor were you with them when they disputed.
45. (Remember) when the angels said:
"O Mary! Verily, Allah gives you the glad tidings of a Word from Him, his name will
be the Messiah Isa (Christ Jesus), the son of Mary, held in honour in this world
and in the Hereafter, and will be one of those who are near to Allah.
46. "He will speak to the people,
in the cradle and in manhood, and he will be one of the righteous."
47. She said: "O my Lord! How
shall I have a son when no man has touched me?" He said: "So it will be for
Allah creates what He wills. When He has decreed something, He says to it only: 'Be!' ---
and it is.
48. "And Allah will teach him the
Book and Wisdom, the Torah and the Gospel,
49. "And appoint him a Messenger
to the Children of Israel (saying): 'I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, in
that I design for you out of clay, a figure like that of a bird, and breathe into it, and
it becomes a bird by Allah's Leave; and I heal him who was born blind, and the leper, and
I bring the dead to life by Allah's Leave. And I inform you of what you eat, and what you
store in your houses. Surely, therein is a sign for you, if you believe.
50. " 'And I have come confirming
that which was before me of the Torah, and to make lawful to you part of what was
forbidden to you, and I have come to you with a proof from your Lord. So fear Allah and
51. " 'Truly, Allah is my Lord
and your Lord, so worship Him. This is the Straight Path.' "
Chapter 4, Verse 171
171. O people of
the Scripture! Do not exceed the limits in your religion, nor say of Allah aught but the
truth. The Messiah Isa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), was a Messnger of
Allah and His Word (Be! - and he was) which He bestowed on Maryam (Mary) and a
spirit created by Him: so believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not: "Three
(trinity!)" To stop would be better for you. For Allah is only One Ilah
(God), and He is far exalted above having a son. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens
and all that is in the earth. And Allah is All-Sufficient as a Disposer of affairs.

Verses 116 - 118
116. And (remember) when Allah will say
(on the Day of Resurrection): "O Isa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)!
Did you say unto men: 'Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allah' ?" He will
say: "Glory is to You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I
said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You know what is in my inner self
though I do not know what is in Yours; truly, You, only You, are the All-Knower of all
that is hidden.
117. "Never did I say to them
aught except what You did command me to say: 'Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.' And I
was a witness over them while I dwelt amongst them, but when You took me up, You were the
Watcher over them; and You are a Witness to all things.
118. "If You punish them, they are
Your slaves, and if You forgive them, verily, You, only You, are the All-Mighty, the
