In Islam, Mary is the personification of ideal prayer, clarity and devotion to Spirit.
Much is known about Mary from the Christmas Story. However, Mary is also revered within the Muslim community and, while the passages attributed to her in the Bible are relatively brief, she had an entire chapter of the Quran dedicated to her. Metaphysically, Mary is Soul in physical form.
Instead of giving birth to Jesus in a stable, the Quran states that Mary gave birth while standing and hanging onto a palm tree which provided water and food! [A voice said "Grieve not! for thy Lord hath provided a rivulet beneath thee; And shake towards thyself the trunk of the palm-tree: It will let fall fresh ripe dates upon thee.”] The Quran also says Jesus presented his first miracle when he spoke from the cradle.
