Quran verses about the birth of Jesus

What does Islam tell us about the miraculous birth of Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him)? In Quran, there is a whole chapter devoted to Mary (as it is entitled Maryam) - the mother of Jesus Pace Be Upon Him. The chapter mentions how an angel appears before Mary in a human form and gives Her glad tidings of a son.

* Surah Maryam - Verse 16 

Relate in the Book (the story of) Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place in the East.

* Surah Maryam - Verse 17 

She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent her our angel, and he appeared before her as a man in all respects.

* Surah Maryam - Verse 18 

She said: "I seek refuge from thee to (Allah) Most Gracious: (come not near) if thou dost fear Allah."

* Surah Maryam - Verse 19

He said: "Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son.

* Surah Maryam - Verse  20 

She said: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?"

* Surah Maryam - Verse 21

He said: "So (it will be): Thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: and (We wish) to appoint him as a Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us':It is a matter (so) decreed."

* Surah Maryam - Verse 22

So she conceived him, and she retired with him to a remote place.

* Surah Maryam - Verse 23 

And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm-tree: She cried (in her anguish): "Ah! would that I had died before this! would that I had been a thing forgotten and out of sight!"

* Surah Maryam - Verse 27

At length she brought the (babe) to her people, carrying him (in her arms). They said: "O Mary! truly an amazing thing hast thou brought!

* Surah Maryam - Verse 28
