Mary's (AS) name, that was chosen by her mother, (verse 36, Surah 3 ) means devout or servant. She had a sanctuary where she prayed to God and contended filth and Satan. God describes Mary in verse 12 of Surah 66 and says: "and she was of the prayer sayers and the devoted." And in verse 43 of Surah 3 God says to Mary: " O Mary! Be obedient to thy Lord, prostrate thyself and bow with those who bow (in worship)."
