Jesus declared, "Verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord: therefore serve Him. This is the Right Way."


"O Muhammad, relate to them the story of Maryam (Mary) in the Book (The Qur'an) when she withdrew from her family to a place in the East.[16] She chose to be secluded from them. We sent to her Our angel and he appeared before her as a grown man.[17]

She said: "I seek Rahman’s (Allah’s) protection against you, leave me alone if you are Godfearing."[18] He said: "Don’t be afraid, I am merely a messenger from your
Lord to tell you about the gift of a holy son."[19]

She said: "How shall I bear a son, no man has ever touched me nor am I unchaste?"[20] The angel replied: "So shall it be- Your Lord says: `It is easy for Me. We wish to make him a Sign for mankind and a blessing from Us’ - and this matter has already been decreed."[21]

So she conceived the child and she retired with him to a remote place.[22] The pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm-tree. She cried in her anguish: "Ah! Would that I had died before this, and been long forgotten!"[23]

An angel from beneath the palm-tree consoled her, saying: "Do not grieve! Your Lord has provided a brook at your feet.[24] If you shake the trunk of this palm-tree, it will drop fresh ripe dates in your lap.[25]

So eat, drink and refresh yourself. If you see anyone, tell him: `I have vowed a fast to Rahman (Allah), so I will not speak to anyone today’."[26] Carrying the baby, she came back to her people. They said: "O Mary! You have brought something hard to believe![27]

O sister (a woman from the noble family) of Haroon! Your father was not a bad man nor your mother an unchaste woman."[28] In response she merely pointed towards the baby. They said: ."How can we talk to a babe in the cradle?".[29]

Whereupon the baby spoke out: ."I am indeed a servant of Allah. He has given me the Book and made me a Prophet.[30] His blessing is with me wherever I go. He has commanded me to establish Salah and give Zakah as long as I shall live.[31]

He has exhorted me to honor my mother and has not made me domineering, hard to deal with.[32] Peace be upon me the day I was born, the day I shall die and the Day I shall be raised to life again."[33]

Such was Jesus the son of Mary, and this is the True statement about him concerning which they are in doubt.[34] It is not befitting to the majesty of Allah that He Himself should beget a son! He is far above this; for when He decrees a matter He need only say: "Be" and it is.[35].

Jesus declared, Verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord: therefore serve Him. This is the Right Way."36
