20. For Readers of the Qur'an

12) Righteous To His Mother (بارّ لأمه)

Mary, the mother of 'Isa, became, according to the Qur'an, despised and threatened with stoning because she gave birth to a child while she was not married. Yet her son, Allah and Jibril, together, justified her, proved that she was innocent and declared that the birth of her son was of the Spirit of Allah (Sura Maryam 19:26-29, 32).

Christ remained humble and kind to his mother. His care for her extended even after his death, because he asked John, the youngest of his disciples, to receive his mother and care for her, as the firstborn cares for his mother (John 19:25-27).

Mary was praying in the upper room in Jerusalem, where the disciples were waiting for the promise of the Father. She and all the apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit, as Mary's Son had declared that he would send the divine Helper (Acts 1:14; 2:1-4; John 14:16). After his substitutionary death, Christ did not leave his mother, nor his followers helpless. He comforted all sinners, by sending them his Holy Spirit.
