In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
KaafHaYa'aeenSaad. (1) Commemorate the beneficence of your Lord on Zachariah, His devotee, (2) When he cried unto his Lord a cry in secret, (3) Saying: "My Lord! Indeed my bones have grown feeble, and grey hair has spread on my head, And I have never been unblest in my invocation to You, O my Lord! (4) “And I fear my relatives after me and my wife is barren therefore bestow upon me from Yourself one who will take up my work.” (5) "Who shall inherit me, and inherit (also) the posterity of Ya'qub (Jacob) (inheritance of the religious knowledge and Prophethood, not the wealth, etc.). And make him, my Lord, one with whom You are Well-pleased!". (6) "Zachariah, We bring you good news of a son whose name shall be John. We have not given such a name to anyone before." (7) He said: O my Lord! when shall I have a son, and my wife is barren, and I myself have reached indeed the extreme degree of 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) Zechariah said: "Lord, grant me a Sign." Said He: "Your Sign is that you shall not be able to speak to people for three nights, though you will be otherwise sound." (10) Thereupon Zechariah came out from the sanctuary and directed his people by gestures to extol His glory by day and by night. (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) and tenderness [of heart] and purity. He was pious, (13) and dutiful towards his parents and was not haughty or disobedient. (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)
