This article is an introduction to the Sura Maryam; to read its text see text:Sura Maryam.

Sūra Maryam (Arabic: سورة مریم) is the nineteenth sura of the Qur'an. It is a Makki sura located in the sixtieth verse of the Qur'an. The sura is called "Maryam" because it narrates the story of Lady Maryam (a) or Mary. The main message of the sura consists in good tidings and warnings to people in terms of stories of prophets, including Zechariah (a), John the Baptist (a), Abraham (a), Moses (a), and Jesus (a).

Central themes of the sura include the issues of resurrection and the quality of rising from the dead, rejection of the claim that God has children, and the issue of intercession.

One well-known verse of the sura is the verse ninety six known as Wudd Verse (or the Verse of Affection). To persist on reciting Sura Maryam makes one needless of life, property, and children.
