And behold, the angels said, "O Mary, surely Allah has chosen you and purified you, and chosen you above the women of all nations.

"O Mary, be obedient to your Lord and prostrate and bow down with those who bow down in prayer."

Behold, the angels said, "O Mary, Allah gives you good news of a word from Him.  His name shall be Jesus Christ the Son of Mary, held in honor in this world and in the Hereafter and among those nearest to Allah.

"He will speak to the people from the cradle and in maturity and among the righteous."
She said, "My Lord, how can I have a son and no man has touched me?"  He said, "Even so:
Allah creates what he wills.  When He decrees a matter, He but says 'Be' and it is."

Qur'an 3:42-43,45-47

then We sent to her Our spirit and he appeared to her in the form of a man.

She said, "I seek refuge from you with the Beneficent Creator, unless you are righteous."

He said, "I am only an angel of your Lord, that He will give you a righteous son."

She said, "How can I have a son and no man has touched me ."

Qur'an 19:17-20

And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, 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 favor with God.

And, behold, thou shalt conceive in they womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.

Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?


Luke 1:28-31,34 (KJV)
