Mary's Son, Isa (Blog a Koran Day)

Sep 11 is Blog a Koran day, a tradition on this blog that I started a few years ago when someone stupidly threatened to burn a copy of the Koran.

My post in 2010 was Water For Pilgrims

My post in 2011 was Jacob in the Koran

Today I want to blog a passage from Koran 19:15-21which speaks about the virgin birth of Mary's son, Isa. If you have a similar Koran post today, please let me know.

 
19:15
 
And peace be upon him the day he was born and the day he dies and the day he is raised alive.


19:16
 
And mention, [O Muhammad], in the Book [the story of] Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place toward the east.


19:17
 
And she took, in seclusion from them, a screen. Then We sent to her Our Angel, and he represented himself to her as a well-proportioned man.


19:18
 
She said, "Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, [so leave me], if you should be fearing of Allah ."


19:19
 
He said, "I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy."


19:20
 
She said, "How can I have a boy while no man has touched me and I have not been unchaste?"

 
19:21
 
He said, "Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter [already] decreed.'"
