21) What did Allah say about Mary ?
(3 : 42 – 47)
42 : And (remember) 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 jinn) (of her lifetime).”
43 : O Mary! “Submit yourself with obedience to your Lord (Allah),
by worshipping none but Him Alone) and prostrate yourself, and
Irkai (bow down) along with ArRakiun (those who bow down).”
44 : This is apart of the news of the Ghaib (unseen, i.e. the news of the
past national of which you have no knowledge) which We reveal to
you (O Muhammad PBUH) You were not with them, when they cast lots
with their pens as to which of them should be charged with the care of
Maryam (Mary); nor were you with them when they disputed.
45 : (Remember) when the angels said: “O Maryam (Mary)! Verily,
Allah gives you the glad tidings of a Word (“Be”- and he was! I.e. Isa
(Jesus) the son of Maryam (Mary), from Him, his name will be the
Messiah Isa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), held in honour in this
world and in the Hereafter, and will be one of those who are near to
46 : “He will speak to the people in the cradle and in manhood and he
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.
