In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
KAF HA YA 'AIN SAD. (1) This is the story of the blessing of your Lord to His servant Zachariah. (2) When he quietly called his Lord (3) He said: "Lord! My bones have grown feeble and my head is glistening with age; yet, never have my prayers to You, my Lord, been unfruitful. (4) Lo! I fear my kinsfolk after me, since my wife is barren. Oh, give me from Thy presence a successor (5) Inheriting me and inheriting the Children of Ya'qub; and make him, my Lord, acceptable! (6) (Allah said) "O Zakariya (Zachariah)! Verily, We give you the glad tidings of a son, His name will be Yahya (John). We have given that name to none before (him)." (7) He said: O my Lord! in what wise shall there be for me a boy, whereas my wife hath been barren, and surely have reached an age of extreme degree? (8) He replied: 'It shall be so; your Lord says: "It is easy for Me, indeed, I created you before time when you were not a thing." (9) He said: "O Lord, give me a token." "Though sound," He answered, "you will not talk to any one for three nights running." (10) Then he came out to his people from Al-Mihrab (a praying place or a private room, etc.), he told them by signs to glorify Allah's Praises in the morning and in the afternoon. (11) (To his son came the command): "O Yahya! take hold of the Book with might": and We gave him Wisdom even as a youth, (12) as well as, by Our grace, [the gift of] compassion and purity; and he was [always] conscious of Us (13) and full of piety towards his parents; and never was he haughty or rebellious. (14) He was born and died in peace and will be brought back to life again in peace. (15)
