[003:030] On the Day when every person will be confronted with all the good he has done, and all the evil he has done, he will wish that there were a great distance between him and his evil. And Allh warns you against Himself (His punishment) and Allh is full of kindness to (His) slaves.


[003:031] Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam] to mankind): "If you (really) love Allh, then follow me (i.e. accept Islmic Monotheism, follow the Qur'n and the Sunnah), Allh will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."


[003:032] Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "Obey Allh and the Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam])." But if they turn away, then Allh does not like the disbelievers.


[003:033] Allh chose Adam, Nh (Noah), the family of Ibrhm (Abraham) and the family of 'Imrn above the 'lamn (mankind and jinn) (of their times).


[003:034] Offspring, one of the other, and Allh is All-Hearer, All-Knower.


[003:035] (Remember) when the wife of 'Imrn said: "O my Lord! I have vowed to You what (the child that) is in my womb to be dedicated for Your services (free from all worldly work; to serve Your place of worship), so accept this from me. Verily, You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knowing."


[003:036] Then when she gave birth to her [child Maryam (Mary)], she said: "O my Lord! I have given birth to a female child," and Allh knew better what she brought forth, "And the male is not like the female, and I have named her Maryam (Mary), and I seek refuge with You (Allh) for her and for her offspring from Shaitn (Satan), the outcast."


[003:037] So, her Lord (Allh) accepted her with goodly acceptance. He made her grow in a good manner and put her under the care of Zakariyy (Zechariah). Every time he entered Al-Mihrb to (visit) her, he found her supplied with sustenance. He said: "O Maryam (Mary)! From where have you got this?" She said, "This is from Allh." Verily, Allh provides sustenance to whom He wills, without limit.




(V.3:32) See the footnote of (V.3:85).


(V.3:36) Maryam literally means: maidservant of Allh.


(V.3:37) Al-Mihrb: a praying place or a private room.
