She accompanied Joseph to Bethlehem , where Jesus was born. According to Catholic and Orthodox teachings, at the end of her earthly life her body was raised directly into Heaven ; this is known in the Christian West as the Assumption. Mary has been venerated since early Christianity ,   and is considered by millions to be the most meritorious saint of the religion. She is said to have miraculously appeared to believers many times over the centuries. There is significant diversity in the Marian beliefs and devotional practices of major Christian traditions.
Mary, mother of Jesus
Genealogy of Jesus through Mary
We really can't take anything about Mary from the Quran since it was written so many years after the events happened, It was also written by a man with limited knowledge of the events. As for the Bible pulling facts based on historical events is acceptable, but anything spiritual or mystical needs to be left out of the work here. The birth of Mary is narrated in the Quran with references to her father as well as her mother. Mary's father is called Imran. He is the equivalent of Joachim in Christian tradition. Her mother, according to al-Tabari, is called Hannah, which is the same name as in Christian tradition Saint Anne. Muslim literature narrates that Imran and his wife were old and childless and that, one day, the sight of a bird in a tree feeding her young aroused Anne's desire for a child.

The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. And David was the father of Solomon by the wife of Uriah, and Solomon the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asa, and Asa the father of Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah, and Uzziah the father of Jotham, and Jotham the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah, and Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, and Manasseh the father of Amos, and Amos the father of Josiah, and Josiah the father of Jechoniah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon. And after the deportation to Babylon: Jechoniah was the father of Shealtiel, and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel, and Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, and Abiud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor, and Azor the father of Zadok, and Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud, and Eliud the father of Eleazar, and Eleazar the father of Matthan, and Matthan the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ. So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to the Christ fourteen generations.

I love this site. One question: Given what you've posted here, why do both Matthew and Luke give the genealogy of Joseph, rather than Mary? What are they trying to tell us? For one, it must be mentioned as in the article that Mary was of the same tribe as Joseph, so that her genealogy would be close to that of Joseph.
