Kaf. Ha. Ya. 'Ayn. Sad. (1) (This is) a mention of the mercy of your Lord to His slave Zakariya (Zachariah). (2) Behold! he cried to his Lord in secret, (3) he prayed: "O my Sustainer! Feeble have become my bones, and my head glistens with grey hair. But never yet, O my Lord, has my prayer unto Thee remained unanswered. (4) I fear evil from my kinsmen after I am gone; and my wife is barren, so grant me an heir out of Your special grace, (5) "(One that) will (truly) represent me, and represent the posterity of Jacob; and make him, O my Lord! one with whom Thou art well-pleased!" (6) 'O Zachariah, We give you good tidings of a son, and he shall be called John (Yahya); a name We have never given before' (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) (The angel) said, "This is true, but your Lord says, 'For Me it is easy; I created you when you did not exist". (9) He said: My Lord! Appoint for me some token. He said: Thy token is that thou, with no bodily defect, shalt not speak unto mankind three nights. (10) Thereupon he came out of the sanctuary unto his people and signified to them [by gestures]: "Extol His limitless glory by day and by night!" (11) (We said:) "O John, hold fast to the Book;" and We gave him wisdom right from boyhood, (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) So Peace on him the day he was born, the day that he dies, and the day that he will be raised up to life (again)! (15)
