The following is post number 8 in my series,
“The Nativity Through Abrahamic Literature”.
This post centers around How Long Mary was pregnant with Jesus. It comes from the genre of Islamic literature known as the stories of the prophets. The collection this is found in is a Shia collection known as The Prophets, Their Lives And Their Stories by Abdul-Sâhib Al-Hasani Al-‘âmili, from the chapter The Pregnancy of Mary With Jesus And His Birth.
