[19:16] Mention in the scripture Mary. She isolated herself from her family, into an eastern location.
[19:17] While a barrier separated her from them, we sent to her our Spirit. He went to her in the form of a human being.
[19:18] She said, “I seek refuge in the Most Gracious, that you may be righteous.”
[19:19] He said, “I am the messenger of your Lord, to grant you a pure son.”
[19:20] She said, “How can I have a son, when no man has touched me; I have never been unchaste.”
[19:21] He said, “Thus said your Lord, ‘It is easy for Me. We will render him a sign for the people, and mercy from us. This is a predestined matter.'”
What is the “barrier” that is mentioned in 19:17?
[23:100] “I will then work righteousness in everything I left.” Not true. This is a false claim that he makes. A barrier will separate his soul from this world until resurrection.
Who or what is “our Spirit” in 19:17? Was this the same spirit as referenced to Adam?
[3:59] The example of Jesus, as far as GOD is concerned, is the same as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him, “Be,” and he was.
The Origin of Man
[32:7] He is the One who perfected everything He created, and started the creation of the human from clay. [32:8] Then He continued his reproduction through a certain lowly liquid. [32:9] He shaped him and blew into him from His spirit. And He gave you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brains; rarely are you thankful.
[5:110] GOD will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary, remember My blessings upon you and your mother. I supported you with the Holy Spirit, to enable you to speak to the people from the crib, as well as an adult. I taught you the scripture, wisdom, the Torah, and the Gospel. Recall that you created from clay the shape of a bird by My leave, then blew into it, and it became a live bird by My leave. You healed the blind and the leprous by My leave, and revived the dead by My leave. Recall that I protected you from the Children of Israel who wanted to hurt you, despite the profound miracles you had shown them. The disbelievers among them said, ‘This is obviously magic.’
[66:12] Also Mary, the Amramite. She maintained her chastity, then we blew into her from our spirit. She believed in the words of her Lord and His scriptures; she was obedient.
Mary and Jesus
[21:91] As for the one who maintained her virginity, we blew into her from our spirit, and thus, we made her and her son a portent for the whole world.
The Human Race
[15:26] We created the human being from aged mud, like the potter’s clay. [15:27] As for the jinns, we created them, before that, from blazing fire. [15:28] Your Lord said to the angels, “I am creating a human being from aged mud, like the potter’s clay. [15:29] “Once I perfect him, and blow into him from My spirit, you shall fall prostrate before him.”
[78:38] The day will come when the Spirit and the angels will stand in a row. None will speak except those permitted by the Most Gracious, and they will utter only what is right.
Mary and Jesus
[3:42] The angels said, “O Mary, GOD has chosen you and purified you. He has chosen you from all the women. [3:43] “O Mary, you shall submit to your Lord, and prostrate and bow down with those who bow down.” [3:44] This is news from the past that we reveal to you. You were not there when they drew their raffles to select Mary’s guardian. You were not present when they argued with one another. [3:45] The angels said, “O Mary, GOD gives you good news: a Word from Him whose name is ‘The Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary.’ He will be prominent in this life and in the Hereafter, and one of those closest to Me. [3:46] “He will speak to the people from the crib, as well as an adult; he will be one of the righteous.” [3:47] She said, “My Lord, how can I have a son, when no man has touched me?” He said, “GOD thus creates whatever He wills. To have anything done, He simply says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is. [3:48] “He will teach him the scripture, wisdom, the Torah, and the Gospel.” [3:49] As a messenger to the Children of Israel: “I come to you with a sign from your Lord—I create for you from clay the shape of a bird, then I blow into it, and it becomes a live bird by GOD’s leave. I restore vision to the blind, heal the leprous, and I revive the dead by GOD’s leave. I can tell you what you eat, and what you store in your homes. This should be a proof for you, if you are believers. [3:50] “I confirm previous scripture—the Torah—and I revoke certain prohibitions imposed upon you. I come to you with sufficient proof from your Lord. Therefore, you shall observe GOD, and obey me. [3:51] “GOD is my Lord and your Lord;* you shall worship Him alone. This is the right path.” [3:52] When Jesus sensed their disbelief, he said, “Who are my supporters towards GOD?” The disciples said, “We are GOD’s supporters; we believe in GOD, and bear witness that we are submitters. [3:53] “Our Lord, we have believed in what You have sent down, and we have followed the messenger; count us among the witnesses.”
Jesus and the End of the World*
[43:61] He is to serve as a marker for knowing the end of the world,* so you can no longer harbor any doubt about it. You shall follow Me; this is the right path.
