Maryam (Mary): daughter of Imran and mother of Isa (Jesus) [Alayhi salaam]. She was respected by both Muslims and Christians She is the only woman who is mentioned in the Quran by her own first name and has a Surah named after her. Two Surah’s: – Al Imran and Maryam narrate her story in considerable detail.
The Noble Qur’an speaks of Maryam (Mary) not only as the mother of Prophet Isa (Jesus), [Alayhi salaam], but as a righteous woman in her own right. And when the angels said: “Maryam, Allah has chosen you and purified you. He has chosen you over all other women. ” (Qur’an, 3:42) She became the best of the women in the world.
It is mentioned in the Qur’an that the angels said Allah chose Maryam and preferred her to the other women of the world. (Al -Imran, 42-43). The virtues, moral excellence and high status of Maryam (Mary) are detailed in the Quran, and she is presented as an example to all humankind. Maryam is arguably the most outstanding character in Islamic history, and as a woman, she is an example for women in all aspects of their lives. Her sincerity, piety, purity and devotion to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’aala (GOD) the All Mighty are qualities that all Muslims aspire to. So it must be understood that Maryam (Mary) holds one of the most honoured positions in the hearts of Muslims of all times and places.
And Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) knows best May Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) help us to do that which He loves and which pleases Him. May Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) make our efforts sincere and keep us all on the straight path
