How did Mary, mother of Jesus, get pregnant?

{And mention, [O Muhammad], 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 veil. Then We sent to her Our Spirit, and he represented himself to her as a perfect man * She said, “Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, if you are Taqiyya * He said, “I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you a pure boy * She said, “How can I have a boy while no man has touched me and I have not been unchaste?”* He said, “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.’ “* So she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a remote place.* And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree. She said, “Oh, I wish I had died before this and was in oblivion, forgotten.”* But he called her from below her, “Do not grieve; your Lord has provided beneath you a stream.””} [Surat Maryam from verse 16 till verse 24]

1- What is the veil that Mary a.s took in the verse 17?

2- Who is “our spirit” mentioned in the verse? And why did he appear to her as a human being specifically? Was it in order for her to feel safe or for another reason?

3- How was did he give her ([regarding the verse {He said, “I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you a pure boy}])? is it through marriage? Or blowing? And was the blowing physical or spiritual, and how did she get pregnant? What was the duration of the pregnancy? And how no one noticed the pregnancy? And was it a pregnancy in the natural way?

4- {She said, “Oh, I wish I had died before this and was in oblivion, forgotten.} is it because of the pain of childbirth or because she gave birth to him without a father so she was scared, or for other reasons?

Answer: In the Name of Allah The Merciful The Intensely Merciful,
All Praises belong to Allah the Lord of the Worlds
O Allah send Your Peace and Blessings upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad the Imams and the Mahdis and send great greetings.

1. The Veil of Mary is the place of worship where she used to pray alone away from people

2. The details about the spirit will come in a book called They Ask You About the Spirit. As for the fact that the spirit was represented in a human being, then one of the reasons is for her to feel safe.

3. Blowing is delivering the Sperm of the Self, which is attached to the self, into the womb of Mary. And this is the non physical sperm, marriage is not necessary in order for this sperm to be delivered. Rather it is a light sperm, from it the shape of the human being is formed.
And it can enter from any part of the body, from the mouth, nose, or stomach. It is non physical, so matter does not hinder its entering.

Jesus a.s. was born from a mother without a father, meaning that he a.s differs from Adam a.s who was created without a father nor a mother.
So Jesus a.s was created by Allah in this physical world from a complete cell, which Allah placed in the womb of Mary a.s in the natural form, meaning this complete cell is an egg, and it came from the ovaries, but it was special in the sense that it was complete/perfect, it did not need to be fertilized. All what it needed was to get connected to a self sperm. And I have clarified that in more than one place.

And the Spirit came with this self sperm and delivered it so that it connects to the complete cell that Jesus a.s was created from.

Naturally, the material physical sperm is attached to the self sperm, and the self connects to the self sperm and gets attached to it in the fourth month of pregnancy approximately.

As for the case of Jesus, there was no physical sperm, and that is why the Spirit came with the self sperm in order to deliver it to the complete perfect egg which does not need fertilization, that happened so that later on the self which is attached to this self sperm connects to it, and consequently connects to this newly created body.

And the duration of pregnancy was 9 months, but Allah made it a light pregnancy meaning it was not apparent so that people may not recognize it, until the last hours when she got out from her place of worship and seclusion with Allah swt {So she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a remote place} [Surat Maryam verse 29]

4- After all this path with Allah, and the unseen, and miracles, could a sane person say that she was scared of people? The person ignorant of the truth imagines that she is scared of people, yet here she is, not caring about their words, rather, she brings Jesus a.s and so calmly and presents him upon the people while they were attacking her harshly {Then she brought him to her people, carrying him. They said, “O Mary, you have certainly done a thing unprecedented * O sister of Aaron, your father was not a man of evil, nor was your mother unchaste.”} [Surat Maryam 27-28]

And she did not even bother to reply to them {So she pointed to him. They said, “How can we speak to one who is in the cradle a child?”} [Surat Maryam verse 29]

Therefore, Mary was not scared, rather, she exited the house of Allah and her place of worship and place of her seclusion with Allah because of this pregnancy {So she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a remote place}

And now she gives birth to this child:
{And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree. She said, “Oh, I wish I had died before this and was in oblivion, forgotten.”} [Surat Maryam verse 23]

So now she realized with certitude that she will be deprived from her place of worship forever and she will never come back to the place of her worship in which the signs of Allah would always manifest to her, and that is why she said {Oh, I wish I had died before this and was in oblivion, forgotten.”}

So he reassured her that he is the king of the Children of Israel and that the relief is in his birth and that there is obedience and worship for Allah in being busy with raising him {But he called her from below her, “Do not grieve; your Lord has provided beneath you a stream.} [Surat Maryam verse 24]

I hope you send my many greetings to the dear Abu Ali AlSheikh Hamoud Alkinany may Allah safeguard him from every evil. And I ask Allah to grant me success and bless me to meet him and see him and see all the believers.
And He is my Guardian and He takes care of the Righteous ones.


From the book The Atheism Delusion

Research on the Pregnancy of Mary pbuh with a Male (Jesus pbuh)

There are several issues raised by atheists concerning the birth of Jesus pbuh to Mary without a father. Among the most important arguments are:
How did an ovum with a complete number of 46 chromosomes form, despite the fact that it normally has half the number of chromosomes?!
How did an ovum that has a complete set of chromosomes become stimulated to divide, even though when cloning embryos in a laboratory, if the nucleus of an ovum is replaced with a nucleus having complete chromosomes, it requires external stimulation in order to begin dividing and growing?
How did it result in a male, despite the fact that it is an ovum of a female? Normally, a female has a pair of X chromosomes (XX) and no Y chromosome that can result in a male. In other words, a female cannot produce a male. The determiner of the male sex is the male, because he carries the XY pair of chromosomes.
Before we begin to respond to these questions, we must briefly clarify how the sex of a fetus is determined. A normal human has 46 chromosomes. A female has the two sex chromosomes XX, whereas a male has the two sex chromosomes XY. Therefore, a normal female is usually designated as 46, XX, while a normal male is usually designated as 46, XY.

The division of chromosomes during reproduction produces two groups of sperm: types X and Y. The ovum is usually type X because the female doesn’t have a Y chromosome.
At the time of fertilization, the sperm and the ovum come together to form the fetus.
If sperm Y unites with ovum X, the result will be a male.
If sperm X unites with ovum X, the result will be a female.

There is a genetic mutation called androgen insensitivity syndrome that affects androgen receptors in the fetus with the chromosomes 46, XY. This mutation reduces the effect of the male sex gene, and therefore a feminine reproductive system forms. The condition of
a person afflicted with this syndrome depends on the type of mutation involved and the extent to which it affects the androgen receptors. Therefore, this person could either have both male and female genitalia— albeit incomplete—or just one of the two. For the most part, they have female characteristics.

Thus, if a fetus who has the chromosomes of a male (46, XY) suffers from complete androgen insensitivity syndrome, he will be completely female externally. In fact, it is usually difficult to diagnose this syndrome early on without a thorough examination. The unborn child will have female external genitalia. Therefore, he will usually be a female, but without a uterus or ovaries. In other words, she will be a female with an incomplete female reproductive system and she will have an atrophic male reproductive system buried deep within the abdomen.

What concerns us here is that this syndrome clearly indicates the possibility that an XY fetus can exist without the Y chromosome having any effect,, such that he becomes a complete female with complete reproductive organs. Therefore, the issue of a male being produced from the cells of this female without male intervention is normal and consistent with science because she has the chromosomes 46, XY.
With regard to Jesus’ pbuh birth from Mary pbuh, we are not saying that it is completely normal for this to occur. However, none of the arguments mentioned above are logically or scientifically impossible. Indeed, some of them can be easily explained scientifically.

For example, it is true that a female doesn’t carry a Y chromosome that determines the male sex of the fetus. However, in the case of androgen insensitivity syndrome, a type of genetic abnormality, the unborn child has X and Y sex chromosomes, while his external appearance is that of a female. What we are saying is that this syndrome can be so extreme in a particular fetus that she will be a female with complete reproductive organs, yet still have X and Y chromosomes.

This refutes the argument that a female can produce only a female on her own.

It is theoretically possible for an ovum to have a full complement of chromosomes, especially in a an abnormal situation, such as when a female has the chromosomes 46, XY.
As for the issue of stimulating the ovum to divide, it can happen by means of the radiation that surrounds us, and bombards our bodies from every direction. Sometimes, when the radiation has enough energy, it can cause cellular abnormalities and genetic mutations in the cells of some people, resulting in the development of cancer. Stimulating the ovum to divide with an external stimulus is actually done in laboratories during cloning. After the nucleus of the ovum is replaced with a cell nucleus that has a complete set of chromosomes, the ovum is artificially stimulated to divide using an external stimulus in the laboratory.

Therefore, all of these arguments have been refuted and have been thoroughly explained through science.

In addition, there is Klinefelter syndrome, a condition in which there is an increase in the number of female sex (X) chromosomes. It is usually denoted as 47, XXY, meaning that the affected individual has an extra X chromosome. There are severe variants of Klinefelter syndrome such as 49, XXXXY. In this case, the mother’s affected ovum would have an additional doubling of the already doubled X chromosomes. Therefore, her affected son would have twice the number of already doubled X chromosomes. Another condition is mosaic Klinefelter syndrome,in which there is a mixture and mosaic of chromosomes and this individual would have chromosomes 47, XXY/46, XX. Of the
last two conditions,especially the latter rarely-occurring one, we can assume that it combined with androgen insensitivity syndrome, and resulted in a female with complete female reproductive organs who simultaneously carries a Y chromosome that does not affect her gender. the latter condition is extremely rare, and we can assume that it
is combined with androgen insensitivity syndrome. The result of the combination of these two syndromes would be a female with complete reproductive organs who simultaneously carries a Y chromosome that does not have any effect on the sex of the fetus.
