In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Kaf Ha Ya Ain Sad (1) AN ACCOUNT of the grace which thy Sustainer bestowed upon His servant Zachariah: (2) when he called upon his Lord in low tones, saying, (3) And said: "O my Lord, my bones decay, my head is white and hoary, yet in calling You, O Lord, I have never been deprived. (4) And indeed, I fear the successors after me, and my wife has been barren, so give me from Yourself an heir (5) Who should inherit me and inherit from the children of Yaqoub, and make him, my Lord, one in whom Thou art well pleased. (6) [Thereupon the angels called out unto him: "O Zachariah! We bring thee the glad tiding of [the birth of] a son whose name shall be John. [And God says,] "Never have We given this name to anyone before him." (7) "My Lord!" [said Zachariah], "How shall I have a son when my wife is barren and I have reached such extreme old age?" (8) Allah said: even so! Thy Lord saith: it is unto Me easy, whereas surely I created thee afore when thou wast not aught. (9) He said, "My Lord, grant me a sign!" He said, "Your sign will be that you will not speak to anyone for three successive days and nights, although sound in body." (10) So he came out to his people from the prayer chamber and signaled to them to exalt [Allah] in the morning and afternoon. (11) "O John! Hold the Book with all your strength." We had bestowed wisdom upon him while he was still a child; (12) We gave him compassion and purity. He was a pious human being, (13) And was good to his parents and not forceful, nor disobedient. (14) Peace on him the day he was born, and the day he dieth and the day he shall be raised alive! (15)
