Surah Maryam (Mary) 19 : 18
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
She is both shocked and shaken, which is only the normal reaction of a chaste virgin. Her immediate reaction is to seek God’s protection and to appeal to Him for support. She appeals to the man’s sense of fearing God. She reminds him of God so that he may be restrained from attempting anything evil. So she says to him: “May the Most Merciful protect me from you. [Do not come near me] if you fear God.” (Verse 18) Should he be a God-fearing person, he would respond to the mere mention of God’s name and His attribute of mercy. He would then resist any evil motive and restrain his desire.
