Today ,I’ll be showing you an extract from the Quran dealing with the annunciation and the birth of Jesus the Messiah ( “المسيح عيسى ابن مريم” = "Almasih Isa ibn Maryam ) and how an Angel appeared to his Mother Mary .
This verses are from the “Chapter of Mary” (“سورة مريم” = suratu Maryam )
بســـــم الله الرحــــــمن الرحــــــيم
In the Name of God , the most Beneficent , the most Merciful
16 And mention Mary in the Book. When she drew aside from her family to an eastern place;
17 So she screened herself from them. Then We sent to her Our spirit and it appeared to her as a well made man.
18 She said: I flee for refuge from thee to the Beneficent, if thou art one guarding against evil.
19 He said: I am only bearer of a message of thy Lord: That I will give thee a pure boy.
20 She said: How can I have a son and no mortal has yet touched me, nor have I been unchaste?
21 He said: So (it will be). Thy 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 decreed.
22 Then she conceived him; and withdrew with him to a remote place.
23 And the throes of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree. She said: Oh, would that I had died before this, and had been a thing quite forgotten!
24 So a voice came to her from beneath her: Grieve not, surely thy Lord has provided a stream beneath thee.
25 And shake towards thee the trunk of the palm-tree, it will drop on thee fresh ripe dates.
26 So eat and drink and cool the eye. Then if thou seest any mortal, say: Surely I have vowed a fast to the Beneficent, so I will not speak to any man to-day.
27 Then she came to her people with him, carrying him. They said: O Mary, thou hast indeed brought a strange thing!
28 O sister of Aaron, thy father was not a wicked man, nor was thy mother an unchaste woman!
29 But she pointed to him. They said: How should we speak to one who is a child in the cradle?
30 He said: I am indeed a servant of Allah. He has given me the Book and made me a prophet:
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.
32 And to be kind to my mother; and He has not made me insolent, unblessed.
33 And peace on me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I am raised to life.
