Bold??[edit]

Why is "regarded as the most saintly, pious, chaste, and virtuous woman ever" in bold in the intro? I'm changing it because there is no reason it should stand out from the rest of the section. But if there is a good reason given, then it should be bold; I just couldn't think why it is... --fanturmandos 22:59, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Muhammad in Islam[edit]

While this section is certainly interesting reading, it is completely unrelated to the article at hand. The article is about the Virgin Mary in Islam. However, Muhammed's place in Islam is unrelated to that subject as they existed nearly 600 years apart.

The section is also non-sequitor to itself as quickly turns into a treatise on the defintion of Islam and the Muslim faith rather than talk about Mary, Jesus, OR Muhammed.

This is very good material, but it might fit better in more general articles on Islam and comparative religion.

On second reading, I think if we take the last two paragraphs of the Jesus in Islam section and combine it with the middle paragraph of the Muhammed in Islam section to create a new section called "Comparison of Muslim and Christian Views on Mary and Jesus", we can make it work. --Shinmawa

rename[edit]

{{rename|Islamic view of Virgin Mary}}

  • Rename. Any objections? --Striver 20:25, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Rename. --JuanMuslim 1m 00:56, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

Nobody else?--Striver 16:32, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

Done. --Striver 13:30, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Rename[edit]

Why not name this article to "Islamic view of Mary"?Bless sins (talk) 20:57, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

That would make more sense. It's not like Virgin is her first name and Mary's her last name. Statalyzer (talk) 15:12, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

About the Persian Miniature[edit]

When looking in Commons, I found that this image comes from http://mattstone.blogs.com/photos/christian_art_middle_east/mariam.html and this site says it is christian art of the Middle East, not muslim. So I think it should be removed from this article. --Amine Brikci N (talk) 13:16, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

I have substituted a Persian miniature for the completely inappropriate European painting. I don't believe anyone can prove the religion of whoever painted it, anyhow it is closer to a Muslim view of the subject.24.108.37.224 (talk) 20:30, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Important: Birth of Mary[edit]

Brothers, brothers, whoever wrote the section of the Birth of Mary. The Qur'an mentions two Marys: Mary the virgin, sister of Aaron, and the Mother of Jesus--pbuh; and the, also blessed Mary, daughter of Imran, sister of the prophets Aaaron and Moses--pbuth, the mother of Zakariya father of Yahya (John the Baptist), and she was married but I think her husband died before the birth of Zakariya or sometime after.

I hope anybody can confirm that, so I can bring some sources and make the needed edits. Thanks AdvertAdam talk 21:04, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Amram or Imran?[edit]

A recent IP edit brought up the issue of Mary's father, from an Islamic point of view. I have reverted those edits because Imram is a disambiguation page which leads to Amram (a subsection under St. Joachim) and they both seem to refer to the same person.

Subject[edit]

The subject of this article is Mary in Islam, not Mary in secular thought. Therefore her titles are germane to the article. Tgeorgescu (talk) 13:36, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
