Tis the reason for the season Part 1 Who is Mary in the Quran?

I would like to share with you three passages of the Quran relating to Mary peace be upon her, let it not be said I didn't blog for Mary & Jesus. A most beloved people to our Lord. 

Note: The family of 'Imran mentioned is attributed to the family of Mary peace be upon her

"God chose Adam , Noah, Abraham's family, and the family of 'Imran over all other people, in one line of descent - God hears and knows all. 'Imran's wife said, 'Lord, I have dedicated what is growing in my womb entirely to You; so accept this from me. You are the One who hears and knows all,' but when she gave birth, she said, 'My Lord! I have given birth to a girl' - God knew best what she had given birth to: the male is not like the female - 'I name her Mary and commend her and her offspring to Your protection from the rejected Satan.' Her Lord graciously accepted her and made her grow in goodness, and entrusted her to the charge of Zachariah. Whenever Zachariah went to see her in her sanctuary, he found her supplied with provisions. He said, 'Mary, how is it you have these provisions?' and she said, 'They are from God: God provides limitlessly for whoever He will.'" [The Family of 'Imran 3: 33-37]

"The angels said to Mary: 'Mary, God has chosen you and made you pure: He has truly chosen you above all women. Mary, be devout to your Lord, prostrate your self in worship, bow down with those who pray.' This is an account of things beyond your knowledge that We reveal to you: you were not present among them when they cast lots to see which of them should take charge of Mary , you were not present with them when they argued [about her]. " [The Family of 'Imran 3:42-44]
"Mary, daughter of 'Imran. She guarded her chastity, so We breathed into her from Our spirit. She accepted the truth of her Lord's words and Scriptures: she was truly devout" [Prohibition 66:12] 
Next part to come soon! On the pregnancy & birth of Jesus peace be upon him  =)
