  1. Mary complains to a palm tree about the pains of childbirth. The tree tells her to shake its trunk and ripe dates will fall. 19:23-25

  2. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was the sister of Aaron. (Apparently, Muhammad confused Mary with Miriam.) 19:27-28

    Jesus professes his Islamic faith while still in the cradle, modestly claiming the be a perfect prophet who will be raised alive when he dies. 19:30-34

    "Idris. Lo! he was a saint, a prophet."
    No one knows who the hell Idris is. 19:56
