An Angel Visits Mary
And mention, in the Book the story of Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place toward the east. And she took, in seclusion from them, a screen. Then We sent to her Our Angel, and he represented himself to her as a well-proportioned man.
"Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, so leave me, if you should be fearing of God."

"Thus it will be; your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter already decreed.' "
