Abstract

Discussing the significance of Mary in Islam in one essay is a very difficult assignment. Hence, this essay highlights a few important aspects about Mary, reviews a few qur'ānic verses about her, and briefly discusses her childhood, the miraculous birth of Jesus, her role as a bridge-builder among Christian-Muslim traditions, her image in popular Muslim culture, and the probability of her being a prophetess of God according to Islam.
