Sura 19 Mary

98 verses. Zechariya prayed concerning his barren wife. John to be born. Unique name. Father old but given asked for sign of being unable to speak for three days. Mary withdrew from he family and received an angel to announce gift of a holy son. Miracle from God. She retired to a remote place. In pain she cried out beneath a palm. God told her to shake the tree and get ripe dates. Mary called sister of Aaron.The baby spoke from the cradle. Peace is on me the day I was born, the day I die and the day I shall be raised up again. Does not befit the majesty of God that he beget a son. Abraham told his father not to serve satan. Chased Abraham away for hating his gods. Threatened stoning. Gave Abraham the prophets Isaac and Jacob. Moses, apostle and prophet, given brother Aaron as prophet. Ishmael apostle and prophet. Idris (Enoch) a prophet.
