Mary in the Torah

Genesis 3, 15

A garden enclosed is my sister, [my] spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed.

Song of Salomon 6, 8-9

One is my dove, my perfect one is but one, she is the only one of her mother, the chosen of her that bore her. The daughters saw her, and declared her most blessed: the queens and concubines, and they praised her.
Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?

Song of Salomon 8, 1-2

Who shall give thee to me for my brother, sucking the breasts of my mother, that I may find thee without, and kiss thee, and now no man may despise me?
I will take hold of thee, and bring thee into my mother’s house: there thou shalt teach me, and I will give thee a cup of spiced wine and new wine of my pomegranates.

Wisdom of Salomon 8, 3

She glorifieth her nobility by being conversant with God: yea and the Lord of all things hath loved her.

Wisdom of Salomon 15, 3

For to know thee is perfect justice: and to know thy justice, and thy power, is the root of immortality.

Mary in the New Testament

The Gospel according to Luke 1, 26-38

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.

And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible.And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

The Gospel according to John 19, 25-27

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

Acts of the Apostles 1, 14

These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.

Lo! Allah preferred Adam and Noah and the Family of Abraham and the Family of ‘ Imran above (all His) creatures .They were descendants one of another . Allah is Hearer , Knower .(Remember) when the wife of Imran said : My Lord I have vowed unto Thee that which is in my belly as a consecrated (offering) . Accept it from me . Lo! Thou , only Thou , art the Hearer , the Knower!
And when she was delivered she said : My Lord! Lo! I am delivered of a female . Allah knew best of what she was delivered . the male is not as the female ; and Lo! I have named her Mary , and Lo! I crave Thy protection for her and for her offspring from Satan the outcast .
And her Lord accepted her with full acceptance and vouchsafed to her a goodly growth ; and made Zachariah her guardian . Whenever Zachariah went into the sanctuary where she was , he found that she had food . He said : O Mary! Whence cometh unto thee this (food) ? She answered : It is from Allah . Allah giveth without stint to whom He will .

Relate in the book Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place in the East.
She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent her Our angel, and he appeared before her as a man in all respects.
She said: “I seek refuge from thee to (Allah) Most Gracious: (come not near) if thou dost fear Allah.”
He said: “Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift of a pure son.
She said: “How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?”
He said: “So (it will be): thy Lord saith, ‘That is easy for Me: and (We wish) to appoint him as a Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us’. It is a matter (so) decreed.”
So she conceived him, and she retired with him to a remote place.
