After I became Muslim it took me a while to get used to things, I didnt know much about the sacrafise of Muhammad, peace be upon him, I had studied it from a was he right or wrong view, not a 'how much did he care about his ummah view'
So I just kind of read about Jesus and those near him, I came across Surah Maryam, and was amazed and happy to have found it, I hadn't told my Mum I was Muslim so I found alot difficult, I read and found it amazing, the whole story to me is amazing but I'll talk about this part:
Then she brought him (the baby) to her people, carrying him. They said: "O Mary! Indeed you have brought a thing Fariya (an unheard mighty thing). (Maryam 19:27)
To me, the whole story showed me that, Mary, herself found it hard, Allah quotes her, She said: "Would that I had died before this, and had been forgotten and out of sight!" so it reminded me that she went through harder things than I, but in the end she still remained strong, she pointed to Jesus with full faith in Allah!
"O sister (i.e. the like) of Hārûn (Aaron) [not the brother of Mûsa (Moses), but he was another pious man at the time of Maryam (Mary)]! Your father was not a man who used to commit adultery, nor your mother was an unchaste woman." (Maryam 19:28)
Then she pointed to him. They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?" (Maryam 19:29)
"He ['Iesa (Jesus)] said: Verily! I am a slave of Allāh, He has given me the Scripture and made me a Prophet;" (Maryam 19:30)
Ibn Kathir writes;
Concerning Allah's statement,
﴿فَأَشَارَتْ إِلَيْهِ قَالُواْ كَيْفَ نُكَلِّمُ مَن كَانَ فِى الْمَهْدِ صَبِيّاً ﴾
(Then she pointed to him. They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle'') This is what took place while they were in doubt about her situation, condeming her circumstances, saying what they wanted to say. At that time they were slandering her and falsely accusing her of a horrendous act. On that day she was fasting and keeping silent. Therefore, she referred all speech to him (the child) and she directed them to his address and speech to them. They scoffed at her because they thought that she was mocking at them and playing with them. They said,
﴿كَيْفَ نُكَلِّمُ مَن كَانَ فِى الْمَهْدِ صَبِيّاً﴾
(How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle) Maymun bin Mahran said,
(Then she pointed to him.) "She indicated, `Speak to him.' They then said, `After she has come to us with this calamity, she now commands us to speak to one who is a child in the cradle!''' As-Suddi said, "When she pointed to him they became angry and said, `Her mocking us, to the extent of commanding us to speak to this child, is worse to us than her fornication.' ''
﴿قَالُواْ كَيْفَ نُكَلِّمُ مَن كَانَ فِى الْمَهْدِ صَبِيّاً﴾
(They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle'') This means, "How can someone speak who is in his cradle, in the state of infancy and a child''
I used to sit and imagine how scared it must have been for her, just, how scary, I mean, I've never ever had that type of fear.
Another thing that amazed me, not so much of a story, but just, I dont know, but its this.
And they say: "The Most Beneficent (Allāh) has begotten a son (or offspring or children) [as the Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allāh, and the Christians say that He has begotten a son ['Iesa (Christ)], and the pagan Arabs say that He has begotten daughters (angels, etc.)]." (Maryam 19:88)
Indeed you have brought forth (said) a terrible evil thing. (Maryam 19:89)
Whereby the heavens are almost torn, and the earth is split asunder, and the mountains fall in ruins, (Maryam 19:90)
And to warn those (Jews, Christians, and pagans) who say, "Allāh has begotten a son (or offspring or children)." (Al-Kahf 18:4)
And to think that I used to utter, that I was taught to, and that some people I know still do, and when I used to or people say it now, that the heavens are almost torn, from such words, easy on the tongue. SubhanAllah.
But the most amazing story to me, is mine, as a human, christianity gave me a father like figure, but never have I felt so close to anyone as with Islam,
Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So blessed be Allāh, the Best of creators. (Al-Mu'minun 23:14)
Allah made me, I always knew God made me, but reading it like this felt amazing, reading,
And your Lord said: "Invoke Me, [i.e. believe in My Oneness (Islāmic Monotheism)] (and ask Me for anything) I will respond to your (invocation).
Felt like a buzz, although I'd always prayed to God, this removed any doubt at all what so ever at a time I was confused, and the most amazing verse I had found, which is not the greatest but amazed me was;
Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?
Wallahi I have never found a verse which has made me more, I don't know how to put it, more in wanting to establish a reletionship with God than the above one.
