[Maryam 19:12] "O Yahya - hold the Book firmly"; and We gave him Prophethood in his infancy. (Prophet Yahya was only 2 years old at that time.)

[Maryam 19:13] And compassion from Ourselves, and chastity; and he was extremely pious.

[Maryam 19:14] And was good to his parents and not forceful, nor disobedient.

[Maryam 19:15] And peace is upon him the day he was born, and the day he will taste death, and the day he will be raised alive.

Section 2

[Maryam 19:16] And remember Maryam in the Book; when she went away from her family to a place towards east.

[Maryam 19:17] So there she screened herself from them; We therefore sent Our Spirit towards her - he appeared before her in the form of a healthy man. (Angel Jibreel – peace be upon him.)

[Maryam 19:18] She said, "I seek the refuge of the Most Gracious from you - if you fear God."

[Maryam 19:19] He said, "I am indeed one sent by your Lord; so that I may give you a chaste son."

[Maryam 19:20] She said, "How can I bear a son? No man has ever touched me, nor am I of poor conduct!"

[Maryam 19:21] He said, "So it is; your Lord has said, ‘This is easy for Me’; and in order that We make him a sign for mankind and a Mercy from Us; and this matter has been decreed."

[Maryam 19:22] So she conceived him, and she went away with him to a far place.

[Maryam 19:23] Then the pangs of childbirth brought her to the base of the palm-tree; she said, "Oh, if only had I died before this and had become forgotten, unremembered."

[Maryam 19:24] (The angel) Therefore he called her from below her, “Do not grieve - your Lord has made a river flow below you.”

[Maryam 19:25] "And shake the trunk of the palm-tree towards you - ripe fresh dates will fall upon you." (This was a miracle - the date palm was dry and it was winter season.)
