Rumi on Mary's Virginal Conception of Jesus

Virgin Mary became pregnant
through Divine Breath
blown at her by Archangel Gabriel.
The rose-cheeked baby Jesus
was born to Virgin Mary
through the breath of the Holy Spirit.**

 باد چون جبریل و بار چون مریمی
 عیسی گلروی از این هر دو زاد
حضرت مولانا جلال الدین بلخی رومی

**As a Muslim, Rumi is obviously referring to the Islamic view of Virgin Mary's holy annunciation and  immaculate conception which are virtually identical to Biblical passages.

Holy Annunciation - from the Islamic Perspective:"Behold! the angel [Gabriel] said: "O Mary! Allah has bestowed upon you glad tidings of a Word from him: his name will be Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah." Holy Qur'an 3:45.  

Immaculate Conception - from the Islamic Perspective:
"And at Maryam [Mary], the daughter of Imran [Amram] who guarded her chastity, We breathed Our Spirit."
Holy Qur'an 66:12.
