were not with them when they cast their pens (to decide) which
of them should have
Marium in his charge, and you were not with them when they
contended one with
"3.45": When the angels
said: O Marium, surely Allah gives you good news with
a Word from Him (of

"3.46": And he shall
speak to the people when in the cradle and when of old

"3.49": And (make him)
an apostle to the children of Israel: That I have come
to you with a sign

then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird with Allah's
permission and I

believe in what Thou hast revealed and we follow the
apostle, so write
us down with those who bear witness.

who believe and do good deeds, He will pay them fully
their rewards; and
