Sura Al-i-Imran (Arabic: آل عمران, Sūratu Āli-'Imrān,"The Family of Imran") is the 3rd chapter of the Qur'an with two hundred verses.
Imran in Islam is regarded as the father of Mary. This chapter is named after the family Imran (amram) which includes; Imran, Saint Anne, Mary, Jesus. The chapter is believed to have been revealed in Medina and is either the second or third of Medinan suras. Almost all of it also belongs to the 3rd year of the Hijra with the possible exception of verse 61 which mentions Mubāhalah and therefore might have been revealed during the visit of the Najrān Christian deputation which was occurred in the 10th year of the Hijrah. This chapter primarily focuses on the departure of prophethood from the Mosaic dispensation. Another speculation is that since the event of Mobahela is the highlight of this surah, Al Imran could very well refer to the progeny of Abu Talib ibn 'Abd al-Muttalib, whose real name was Imran.
