In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
KAF HA YA 'AIN SAD. (1) A mention of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zakariya. (2) when he cried to his Lord in secret. (3) saying, 'O my Lord, behold the bones within me are feeble and my head is all aflame with hoariness. And in calling on Thee, my Lord, I have never been hitherto unprosperous. (4) And indeed, I fear the successors after me, and my wife has been barren, so give me from Yourself an heir (5) who will be my heir and an heir to the House of Jacob, and make him, my Lord, satisfied' (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! How shall I have a son, when my wife is barren and I have grown quite decrepit from old age?" (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) Zachariah asked, " Lord, show me evidence (if this is a heavenly news)." The Lord said, "The evidence for it is that you must not speak (to any mortal) though you are in good health for three nights (and days)." (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) And compassion from Us, and goodness. So he was devout, (13) and dutiful towards his parents and was not haughty or disobedient. (14) And Peace be unto him the day he was born and the day he dieth and the day he will be raised up alive. (15)
